Hey guys, Adam here with americanmuscle.com. Today, I'm bringing you a detailed overview and installation of the Professional Products Satin Typhoon Intake Manifold available for all 1999 and 2004 Mustang GTs. So in this video, I'll be going over the performance gains, functionality, and of course, benefits you can expect when it comes to this intake manifold from Professional Products, as well as all the materials and construction that goes into it. I'll top the video off with the installation, which I'll let you know upfront here, guys, will get a full three outta three wrenches on our difficulty meter. So the Professional Products Satin Typhoon Intake Manifold will be for any 1999 to 2004 Mustang GT owner who might be looking to get some improvements as far as airflow is concerned, which of course, we all know airflow in a two-valve 4.6 will equal more power. So when it comes to this particular product compared to some of the other option, this will allow you to get power as a direct bolt-on upgrade from the factory option to allow you to pull in more airflow, which of course, in turn, we all know leads to more power. Now the two-valve 4.6 liter option does have a couple of other ones as far as, you know, a direct OE style replacements. This one of course is compatible with all stock engine components such as the alternator, pulleys, and other things as well, whereas some of the other ones really can't boast that fact. So this option is offered in a three-piece kit which is perfect for the guys out there looking to fine tune and [inaudible 00:01:19] in order to make sure you get bigger gains and bigger airflows. That'll definitely maximize the performance. Now Professional Products has claimed to gain 20 rear wheel horsepower without any work done to it. Now, in my opinion that's a little bit generous for a stock naturally aspirated engine, but for the guys out there looking to do that work, you can definitely see that as it is in the realm of possibilities. Now I'm taking a look at this myself, it doesn't have the best castings and all that. Some guys have found that it might be a little clogged up in some places and cleaning it up would definitely do the trick. But it is, like I said, one of the options that is a direct bolt-on that doesn't require any work. If you're running a bit of boost, I would recommend getting a fine-tune reported job going on on this option just to get a little bit more out of it. Now since we're on the notion of materials and construction, it has a satin powder-coated finish which gives it a friendly OEM-style look, something that doesn't really scream aftermarket, but if that is exactly what you're looking for, then they do have the exact same product in a polished finished which gives it a mirror-like shine. Some guys might think that's a little bit tacky, but for some guys out there, you might be looking for that really big show car appearance.As far as the pricing is concerned, this one in particular comes in right around the $450 mark for the satin option. The polished option might be running you a little bit more since it is a bit more flashy. Now in my personal opinion, it is to be expected the price tag isn't really out of the realm of, you know, the realistic expectations as far as intake manifolds are concerned, but with all the reviews that I've seen myself and all the research I've done, the castings coulda been a little bit better for the price tag. But again, either way, it's a direct bolt and go, so it's up to you on how much you would like to spend and if you like to pick something up that you might wanna do a little bit more work to in order to get it to be a top notch maximum potential.Shifting gears over to the install portion of the video, like I said in the very beginning, this one will get a full three outta three wrenches on our difficulty meter, something that will require you to have some mechanical expertise on deck if you don't have them yourselves.

Technical Notes: The stock intake manifold bolts are too short and the nine bolts supplied in this kit must be used. The two stock bolts that go through the thermostat area of the manifold can be used. The four bolts holding the upper plenum to the manifold are too long and you must use the supplied kit bolts.

Crown Victoria p71
Bought this on sale to replace the the failing factory ford plastic intake for 06 Crown Victoria To start off the casting in this three piece was awful. I had to grind and file a water port, Clean some left over burrs and file the intake opening. For 450 bucks I shouldn’t have to do anything but bolt it in. The Positives, it does flow better in upper RPMs. For 150 bucks less I should’ve gone with the ford intake.Helpful (0)

Needs option of a dual temp sensor port
My harness has a dual temp sensor one for gauges and other is for (ETC) basically ready coolant for fuel ratio. Needs both sensors. Y’all need to have the option on tapping another sensor in on coolant crossover.Helpful (8)

Pretty straightforward assembly, rear coolant outlet needed some love to reopen the port from the casting. Had to use some extra washers to torque the bolts down properly in some places. All in all, not bad, looks good, performs well. Definitely noticeable difference in performance on higher rpms. Coupled with the under drive pulley set for low rpms I added, was a nice compliment.Helpful (1)

Good but needs work to be great
Really liked the manifold, and I understand it's not the most expensive product out there, but the casting could've been better. Took the extra time and port matched the intake runners because they didn't line up perfectly and trimmed the excess gasket from inside of the manifold as well. Some wrinkle black engine paint made the exterior of it look much betterHelpful (1)

How much power over stock will I gain with a tune? I want to know the HP and TQ difference over the stock intake without Stage 2 cams, but with a tune.
My car was tuned before and after the install and I gained 18 hp just with the install. I am not 100% on torque so I can't say on it but I'm sure it was similar.
Will I have any problems if I install this without cams?
While you could install without cams, it is highly recommended to install with cams to make sure you obtain optimal performance.
Will this fit on my 2004 mustang gt? And would I need a tune?
Hello, Yes this would work with your 04 GT and you would need a tune.
Why shouldn’t you use this manifold without upgrading the cams? And what problems might you see if you do use the manifold without upgrading the cams? Besides less gains.
This is not CARB/California legal.
Your factory injectors will work great with this setup still.
This will work with aftermarket plenum/throttle bodies yes.
The OEM gasket will work with this item.
Yes, the OEM gasket will work.
While this can work with the modifications you mentioned without upgraded camshafts it will not operate as intended and may result in issues. We would recommend a new camshaft setup such as the following: Comp Cams Stage 3 Xtreme Energy XE270AH Camshafts - item 30100 https://www.americanmuscle.com/mustang-comp-cams-xe270ah.html Comp Cams Valve Springs Beehive - item 30102 https://www.americanmuscle.com/mustang-comp-cams-springs-16.html Comp Cams Valve Spring Steel Retainers - item 30103 https://www.americanmuscle.com/mustang-spring-retainer-2v.html
The Professional Products Satin Typhoon Intake Manifold works very well with naturally aspirated setups, providing more power, and greater durability than the stock plastic manifold.
The Professional Products Satin Typhoon Intake Manifold will utilize the stock fuel rails. This intake should work well with your setup.
The professional Products Satin Typhoon Intake Manifold will come with the 8mm intake manifold bolts needed for install.
The Professional Products Satin Typhoon Intake Manifold can technically work without upgraded camshafts, however, it will not operate as intended and may result in some drive-ability issues. We would highly recommend a new camshaft. We would highly recommend the following components for proper usage: Comp Cams Stage 3 Xtreme Energy XE270AH Camshafts - item 30100 https://www.americanmuscle.com/mustang-comp-cams-xe270ah.html Comp Cams Valve Springs Beehive - item 30102 https://www.americanmuscle.com/mustang-comp-cams-springs-16.html Comp Cams Valve Spring Steel Retainers - item 30103 https://www.americanmuscle.com/mustang-spring-retainer-2v.html
