Review & Install Video
What's going on guys, Alex, with americanmuscle.com. Today I'm bringing you my detailed review and breakdown of Edelbrock's Victor Jr. EFI Intake Manifold, fitting the 1999 through 2004 Mustang GT. So Edelbrock's Victor Jr. that we're taking a look at today should definitely appeal to the two valve owners out there that have a fair amount of supporting mods, or for someone that's looking for a strong NA build, forced induction of any type, or for the owner out there that might be looking to do a little bit of nitrous down the road. I'm gonna be giving this a full three outta three wrenches on our difficulty meter here, and easily a three to four-hour job. So this intake manifold is gonna be key for the two valve owner out there that's looking to pick up a ton more power on the high end. I'll throw it out there that you will be losing a little bit down low, but, once installed, it's gonna be something that is incredibly apparent anywhere between 4100 RPMs and up. Now if you're unfamiliar with this part or at least how a short runner intake manifold operates, I'm gonna give you a really quick rundown here. Between you and me, this is honestly something that I think is gonna be best geared towards a race application. Again, high big number, NA build, any kind of forced induction, if you're the owner that's not looking to do some headwork, cams, any type of forced induction down the road, this might not be the best modification for you and your build. If you're like many of the 4.6 owners out there that just need a replacement intake manifold because the factory one is honestly paper thin, has a tendency to snap off towards the heater core, [inaudible] performance is improvement, manifold's gonna be a fine pick for you. But switching gears to the construction and materials, if you've ever held Edelbrock's part, you'll know they are definitely committed to bringing out some of the best products out there. And their attention to detail and quality of craftsmanship is consistent here throughout. We're gonna see that this is manufactured out of a high-grade aluminum. It's gonna feature a single plate design, as well as having a short runner configuration, which I had mentioned before. Now because this is an EFI intake manifold, we're gonna see that the injector bosses are gonna be formed right into it itself. And it's worth pointing out that in order to get this onto your car, you are gonna need to pick up a couple of corresponding pieces of hardware.Now some of those pieces are gonna be Edelbrock's Fuel Rail Kit. Additionally, you will need to pick up a new throttle body, as well as their intake elbow for a couple different reasons here. First and foremost, that's gonna have a low pro design in order for you to close your hood. Secondly, it's just gonna be a bad idea to throw a different type of throttle body with this, not being mixing and matching parts.Now in terms of the pricing here, guys, this is gonna run you about 350 bucks. You're gonna need to pick up their fuel rail kit, as well as the intake elbow, maybe even another throttle body. I'd probably work in another 250 to 300 bucks there. And then once it comes time to install this, you may need to run down your local part store and pick up a few odds and ends. Being said, if you are the owner that's looking for a huge NA build, doing some crazy forced induction, or your just building a track car, this is gonna be the perfect fit for you.And switching gears to the installation portion of the video, like I said up top, this is definitely gonna warrant a very solid three outta three wrenches on our difficulty meter here, and easily a three to four-hour job. Looking ahead, you're definitely gonna need the entire tool box. And, if I've scared you away already, there's absolutely no shame in taking this to a shop to have it installed. But hardware wise, like I said earlier, you're definitely gonna have to pick up their fuel rail kit. Not only that, you're gonna be looking at picking up their low pro elbow, a throttle body, and then aside from that, you're gonna need a factory style gasket. Again, the entire tool box. You may have to actually do some custom plumbing just to work everything into place. So I'm Alex, and that's my quick review of Edelbrock's Victor Jr. EFI Intake Manifold, fitting the 1999 through 2004 Mustang GT, available right here at americanmuscle.com.
