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.

best intake manifold
I've used different intakes throughout the years and nothing compares to this one! the only thing i have hard feelings about is the fact you have to use the edelbrock specific fuel rails. They also work perfect and look amazing its just the fact that you have to purchase and use edelbrocks when a lot of people like me have already invested in others really nice units.Helpful (2)

Easy carb swap
If you're stuck with a junky 2v get a msd mod 6 box, a demon 750 and this. With mild ported pi heads and stage 5 comp cams made 430hp on engine dyno. 12:1 compression.Helpful (7)

No directions no bolts :(
Sadly I came to the realization the stock bolts do not work with this intake swap. My intake didn’t come with any. Being told by others that their kits did. Will have to look further into but as of now not happy.Helpful (24)

Great product... but pain in the a**
Okay everyone I'd like to start off by saying this product is very nice high quality and high performance oriented. The install was a NIGHTMARE... no instructions at all which I want expecting but you pretty much have to make things work on your own. Pretty much none of the factory bolts will work so I got new bolts for everything as it comes with no hardware and there's no bolt kit for sale you can buy for this intake. The intake itself fits great under the hood and the factory alternator bracket and bolts will work on it. The intake swap is very very very expensive the 365 dollars for the intake itself is just the start... the whole thing cost me about 1000 dollars I went with mmr fuel rails and mmrs line and fitting kit. Plumbing in the rails wasnt very hard but make sure you have all the fitting you need and USE teflon tape... all in all the intake is worth getting if your planning on doing things in the future like h/c/I set up or forced induction If your staying stock it's not worth it if your doing a lot of upgrades go for it good buy.Helpful (15)
What throttle body do I need to order for this. I've had two different bbk ones and the holes won't line up at all. I don't want a 90mm and I know people have done this with 75 and 78mm throttle body's. I've had these parts in for two weeks and have order 2 different throttle body's and neither worked. Please help
This should certainly work with 75mm up to 90mm throttle bodies. If you are having fitment issues, I would suggest contacting American Muscle Customer Service so they can help troubleshoot the problem and help come up with a solution.
What throttle body will work with this? I have a 99 mustang gt and I am looking to up grade the intake, this is the one everyone is telling me to get and my buddy has a trickflow throttle body on this intake and I have the same throttle body and wanted to make sure it would bolt on.. So my question is if I get the intake can I bolt on my trickflow throttle body insted of the one they reccomend?
As long as your throttle body is a competition style, that being a 75mm up to 90mm, you can use that in conjunction with either a Low Profile or Ultra Low Profile elbow, which is required for proper fitment. I've attached the (2) elbows below so you can take a look to see which one you would need. Keep in mind, a 90mm TB is highly recommended so you can get the best performance from your upgrade, but you can run a 75mm TB without an issue. If you have any other questions, please feel free to give us a call!
I have a pretty much bone stock 02 GT but I want to upgrade big things here and there as I get the money and was wondering if this would work fine with a daily driver that does city, highway, and mostly country roads but I also drive it the way it should be driven. I have 151,000 miles and have a coolant leak with my current manifold and wanted to upgrade from the cheap looking plastic and corroded metal with the added upper power. I like the way this looks and of coarse the brand name as well. I also understand that I will need the Edelbrock fuel rails with plumbing, plenum, and a competition style TB. I am willing to get the accufab 90mm or SR performance 75mm throttle body but don't know if I will be putting in to much air with the bigger size. What should I do/ get for this to work? I also have a Bama SF4 tuner and BBK CAI to tie it all together. Will this CAI work or will I need a new one (What kind)? Thank You!
With your current setup, we would recommend a 75mm throttle body over the 90mm. The 90mm would provide too much air to the engine. With regard to your CAI setup, the Edelbrock upgrades that you are looking for call for a factory style intake gasket for proper fitment.
can i use the stock injectors with this intake and fuel rails
Your stock injectors would be fine with this intake but it would not hurt to upgrade them to a little bigger size. As for the fuel rails, you will need to buy the Edelbrock fuel rail kit (link below) for this intake to work. https://www.americanmuscle.com/edelbrock-fuelrail-9904gt.html
I'm looking into replacing my factory PI intake with an aluminum one since the nozzle where the heater hose connects completely disintegrated on me. I understand I'll need fuel rails, EGR delete, and adapter plate to get this to function with a stock TB/plenum, but will that extra height fit under the stock GT hood? And will an SR performance fender mount CAI still line up with were it needs to be? I've also heard of people having issues with needing to go buy new bolts or fabricate an alternator bracket. I find that hard to believe but is there any substance to those claims??
The Edelbrock Victor Jr. EFI Intake Manifold will fit under the stock hood and will work with the SR intake and would not require a custom alternator bracket. However, you would need to get the items you mentioned plus a 75mm-90mm throttle body as well.
The BBK 73mm Throttle Body Intake we offer (item 394116) would not be considered low profile. Please use a throttle body along with either the Edelbrock Low Profile Throttle Body Intake Elbow (item 56533) or Ultra Low Profile (item 56532).
This Victor Jr. EFI Intake Manifold is designed to replace the stock mono blade throttle body and gives you a few options on which setup you wish to run on your pony. You could combine this EFI manifold with the recommended 4150 flange throttle body, Edlebrock part #38783, and they work perfectly together. Another option allows the combination of this manifold with a competition style throttle body (75mm up to 90mm) and requires the use of either a Low Profile or Ultra Low Profile elbow, please see drop down options above. A 90mm throttle body and an intakeelbow is highly recommended to obtain the optimum performance from the upgraded manifold.
If you install the Edelbrock Victor Jr. EFI Intake Manifold with all the required components you will see HP gains on your 2004 GT.
Unfortunately we would be unable to determine the performance gains as it will depend on the mods you have and the tune used.
So long as you installed this with all the required components you will see HP gains on your stock vehicle.
The 78mm throttle body will work on this intake along with the other modifications specified int he application notes.
This is an excellent manifold, let's be clear here. We love Edelbrock products! It's just going to do better at the track due to the design, but you'll lose power in the lower RPMs so it's not going to be ideal for a daily. If you spend most of your time in the higher RPMs you'll have a blast with this. A direct answer to your question: More mods more fun, but they aren't required if you're looking at a track-focused manifold.
The Edelbrock Victor Jr. EFI Intake Manifold (99-04 GT) requires a factory style intake manifold gasket for proper installation.
