Review & Install Video

Hey, guys. Stephanie with AmericanMuscle.com here with the Ford Racing High Performance Intake Manifold for 2005 to 2010 GT Mustangs. The Ford Racing High Performance Intake Manifold is going to be a great option for the three-valve S197 owners out there that are looking for a transition mod to help build a powerful, naturally aspirated setup or even wanted a little boost. These intake manifolds give the best performance when they're paired with other mods like cams on a throttle body, so it's more of a complimentary upgrade that will set you on the path to squeezing the most performance out of the three-valve. So I'm going to go ahead and say that this intake manifold does not make a very good first modification unless you're just shopping for looks. If you aren't as concerned with the performance gains, then this is an awesome mod. It definitely looks great under the hood, it's flashy, and it grabs attention. But if your car is completely stock and you throw this manifold on there, then you're performance gains are going to be minimal and impressive looks is about all you're going to gain from this manifold. Where this manifold really thrives and performs is when it's paired with other mods. On any cars it works best with a set of cams and aftermarket throttle body, which is why we pair with the Ford Racing Hod Rod Cams and the Ford Racing 62-millimeter throttle body on the product page to help you see the most gains possible with this manifold. It also works great with boost despite some early misconceptions, which I'll come back to earlier. But the increase flow capabilities of the manifold means that it's a good pairing for boosted cars as well. Now if you do currently have a stock or relatively stock three-valve, then this manifold will open up some flow, but in all reality it does really need the help of other mods to transfer the gains. Those that have not already deleted the charge motion plates will notice a little bit more difference and have some more gains as opposed to those that have already taken this step since the mani does delete those. But like I said, this is really more of a modification for a car that already has some work done. Let's talk about the actual construction of this manifold some. It's made from a lightweight composite material, so there are some weight savings here and also better heat desiccation with this type of material as opposed to other types of materials. An aluminum manifold is heavier and easily heat soaked when under hood temps get hot, but the composite material does not react the same way. This means that horsepower torque levels will be more consistent, giving you more consistent performance. And despite some misconceptions, this composite material also functions well under boost. It can stand up the pressure. Ford Racing did pressure test this manifold to make sure that it was strong enough for force induction, and it does have some specifically reinforced areas to make sure there's no failure under boost, so you don't have to avoid this manifold if you're looking at a force induction build. This manifold does have an open plenum design and high-flow runners. So this means more plenum volume and it also has shorter intake runners. The stock intake runners are about 14 inches, but this manifold has runners that are about nine and a half inches. I mentioned this earlier, but this manifold does have the IMRC delete or charge motion control delete built into it, which is going to help supply you with some performance gains. Some more general info, this manifold will still fit under a stock hood, but you won't be able to squeeze it under a Ford Racing strut tower brace. Just so you guys are aware. It's going to include intake gaskets, a crossover fuel line, perch fitting assembly, PCV fitting assembly, and hardware as well. It almost goes without saying, and I'm assuming all of you already know this, but I'm going to say it anyway, you will need a tune for this manifold. So overall this manifold really thrives in the upper RPMs and that's where you'll most likely see the most benefits and improvements. That usually leaves people to become worried about losing some low-end power with this manifold, but you have to keep in mind what you're building for and how you plan on building it. This manifold is really designed to help get the maximum NA gains from this motor with supporting mods, cams, long tubes, throttle body, or with a centrifugal blower or turbo setup. That being said, if you have a build along those lines then you don't have to worry about losing that low-end power. Your build will make your power band. Where you're going to lose a little bit of the low-end power is if you slap this on a stock car, like we talked about earlier. As far as price, this is a pretty serious mod and so it's going to have a pretty serious price tag that comes along with it. Power isn't usually cheap, at least good, sustainable power anyway, and so you're looking at spending a little over $600 for this manifold. Keep in mind though that this is a Ford Racing product, so you've got the comfort of Ford Racing quality, fitment, and know how backing the design of this manifold behind that price tag. The install here really isn't difficult. The manifold is obviously easy to access and I wouldn't say that it takes a ton of know-how to do, but you should have a little experience before you try to tackle this yourself. You'll need a few different sockets, a fuel line disconnect tool, a drill, and a torque wrench as well. It will take about two hours of your time and I'm going to call it a two out of three on the difficulty meter just because this is a little bit of an involved install. Giving a general overview of the install you're looking at having to depressurize the fuel system so you can remove the fuel rails and disconnecting all of the backing connections and the electrical connections to the manifold as well. This means the TPS, MAF, ETC, injectors, and intake. The fuel rails will need to be removed so you can pull the manifold, and following the proper sequence will be a good idea here when you're unbolting the manifold. The alternator bracket will need to be removed so you can modify it, which is why you need a drill bit, but the instructions are clear here and they'll help you out. After that, it's just a matter of installing the new manifold. Follow the bolt sequence here and torque these bad boys down to spec so you don't have any issues, and reinstall all of the other items, including the fuel line crossovers and all of your electrical and vacuum connections. Wrapping things up here, the Ford Racing High Performance Intake Manifold has a high-flow design with an open plenum and high-flow shorter runners to make it a performance upgrade that pairs well with other modifications. It's made from a lightweight composite material that's been pressure tested and reinforced with forced induction applications and, of course, it looks great under the hood. As always I suggest you check this thing out more online for yourself, and for all thing Mustang keep it right here at AmericanMuscle.com.

Ideal Upgrade. Upgrade your 2005-2010 4.6L V8's intake manifold with this premium quality Ford Racing part to channel more air directly into your engine and set the stage for other power mods.

    Love My Ford Performance Intake Manifold

    Bought and had installed my Ford Performance intake manifold and I couldn't be happier. It really compliments my JBA LT headers and Comp Cams MuthaThumpa cams. I really noticed a difference in power especially at the 4K rpm range and higher. Besides the performance side of it, I love the way the intake manifold looks under the hood. I have a SR strut tower brace that clears the intake manifold by a 1/4 inch, but it does clear it. Remember, you will need a tune since a lot more air will be coming into the engine. I would highly recommend this only if you have long tube headers and cams, otherwise you probably get no benefit from it.

    Yes we all know you can get Steeda's alternative for around $300 but how can that compare to a quality Ford Racing intake manifold. I'm often approached by older fellas, typically hot rodders, that love the exhaust note of my Grabber Orange '07 (thank you Pypes Super Beast System) and I'm pleased to talk to them. Nobody expects a modern day fuel injected vehicle to be as modifiable as a mustang and you can proudly boast the rebirth of the muscle car era with this intake manifold. Unlike Steeda's product, you not only feel the results every time you step on the pedal but every time you lift your hood as well. Next mod: Stage 3 Comp Cams and Beehive Springs P.S. Set aside an afternoon and do this yourself guys and gals, it's a fairly simple job requiring only patience and moderate inappropriate language.

    Intake Pro's and Con's

    First of all, this Manifold is pretty good overall. I have Muther Thumper Cams, a BBK Throttle body and JLT intake, along with other extranious upgrades. The Pro's: - It looks great under the hood - I can still fit my Stack Racing Strut bar over it - I can feel and hear a difference - I am getting about 1 mpg better on my daily driving (when not reving high, so I can hear the extra airflow) - Installation instructions are pretty clear but you may need to flip back and forth between the customer submitted guide and manufacturer's guide. Con's: - A vacuum hose must be cut and modified for correct fitment (heat gun may be needed, I used an indirect flame from a torch lighter, just don't leave it in one place too long) - No instructions are included. (you have to go to the AM website and get the pdf. I used my kindle or you could print them out)

    Manifold Looks Amazing in Person

    When I ordered this intake manifold, I thought it looked good, and the pictures of it on customer cars looked good as well, however, in person, the manifold looks fantastic! It really makes the engine stand out. I purchased this with several other intake and exhaust goodies so it is difficult to determine the exact performance gained from this part alone, but the package (CAI, TB, Manifold, Headers, Axle Back) combined with the custom tune from BAMA is amazing! The car seems much more violent now and I can't stop smiling when I drive it. One thing to NOTE: Apparently sometimes the two halves of the manifold (top and bottom) sometimes come already bolted together, and sometimes not because the instructions did not say anything about bolting them together and unfortunately (and embarassingly) I didn't realize that I needed to do that until I had everything installed and put back together so I had to go through a very trick process to get them all in and bolted up after the manifold was already installed. Other than that, the installation went great and I really love the product.

    Great manifold, makes power if you have the mods to go with it. Looks INCFREDIBLE

    I bought this because I am doing cams and long tube headers, and have a GT500 TB. If you already have CMDPs and you dont have AT LEAST lt headers, you are going to gain next to nothing, and bang for the buck will be next to nonexistant. I know several people here talked about the big difference it made on their close to stock cars, but that is their brain telling them a lie, that they believe, to justify the cost. Dynos dont lie, and delete plate make pretty close to the same power, on basic modded cars, until about 5000rpm, where it makes a LITTLE bit more. Really this isnt worth buying unless you have or plan on cams. UNLESS, you just want the look, which is, INCREDIBLE. It looks unbelievably good under the hood. Is it worth doing if you arent doing cams? Depends on what you want. If you dont already have charge motion delete plates, this will get you some decent power. Not nearly $600 worth when CMDPs are under 300, but decent nonetheless. Also, if you want an absolutely awesome looking manifold, this is the one to have. It never fails to get attention when I open my hood, there are always a couple people taking cell phone pics of my engine. Ford tested a combo of this manifold, the FRPP throttle body, Hot rod cams, their CNC heads, and long tube headers and it did 440HP (at the crank, so figure 385ish at the wheels) at 7000rpm. That is the direction I think I am headed. Although I may skip the heads and do a vortech instead. Makes a very nice high pitched WHOOSH sort of whistle when you hit it, almost reminiscent of a turbo. Install took me just under an hour, but I have close to 2 decades of wrenching under my belt. I could have done it faster, but I had to keep going back to the fridge for another beer. (I knocked TWO full cans over by accident) Mine doesnt seem to have the flexing, but even if it DID, Ford has stated that this is "normal" and is no problem, so dont worry about it.

    Ford Racing performance gains with OE-fitment!

    This thing fits like a glove, obviously, being that it's a Ford Racing part. A ton of people are worried about losing low-end power with this manifold, but I've seen otherwise. This manifold is really designed to be installed on a car looking for maximum N/A gains using cams and long tubes, or a centrifugal supercharged or turbocharged forced induction system. You'll make every bit of that low-end power back. I have this on my 2007 Mustang GT, at the time with nothing more than a CAI, Throttle Body and Axle-Backs for other mods. It smoothed out the entire powerband, and pulled like crazy from 5500rpm and up! There was little to no loss on the dyno printout, and you definitely can't feel it on the street with a good tune! Great quality manifold, good price and definitely going to be staying on my car to prepare for a centrifugal supercharger!

    PCV line doesn't fit right...

    Just so you know, the factory PCV line that goes from the driver's side valve cover to the inlet tube on the manifold doesn't quite fit - the distance between A and B has been shortened, so the line now develops a kink in it. I also have a JLT oil separator from before this manifold that also doesn't fit anymore - the inlet tube has also shifted to the side a little bit, making it necessary to modify the oil separator assembly to get it to fit right, which I haven't done yet. I'm running the stock PCV line, kink and all.

    Very easy to install this intake. A noticeable gain in power and it looks great as well. I own a 2008 Shelby GT and combined this with the BBK 62MM twin TB, a BBK underdrive pulley, steeda carbon fiber inlet elbow with the ford racing CAI and last but not least a Bama custom tune. the car rips, flat out. I would recommend this intake to anyone who asks. Cant wait to get the Ford Racing cams to go with it next month to see even bigger gain.

    Nice product

    The intake came intact and not broken unlike several other comments i have read. Pretty basic to install. The most time consuming thing is everything that you have to disconnect then hook back up. If your like me and read the installation procedure before you buy anything. Then ignore the part where they make it seem like its next to impossible to shorten the vacuum hose. measure it out like it says then us scissors or a razor blade. I used a heat gun like it said and heated a 1 inch section for about a minute. I kept pinching it with my thumb and forefinger to see how flexible it was getting (yes it was hot so dont grab onto it and not let go) then with a little effort forced it on the fitting. As long as your not drunk or high it is pretty simple. So far i have Borla S-type cat back, C&L CAI , FRPP intake and 91 tune. I have to roll into the throttle in first or ill just light up the pirellis with the throttle response changed and my 3:73 gears. More power on bottom and on top (nothing HUGE but definitely noticeable). Now just to order Cams, Heads, TB, Headers and clutch and ill have a 450 N/A boss competitor on my hands

    I purchased my '07 Mustang GT with a lot of mods already installed but it still had the stock intake manifold. the FRPP intake manifold really looks good setting on top of the engine. The performance gain resulting from installation followed by a custom BAMA tune more than met my expectations. It's running strong and that Camaro driver I blew away yesterday can attest to that. Great product, easy installation, and I highly recommend.
