Review & Installation Video

Review & Install Video

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. Now, as far

Dyno proven performance gains.   This satin finish Typhoon manifold has been chassis dyno proven to produce 21.5 more rear wheel horsepower than the factory manifold at 6,500 rpm and more torque from 4,000 rpm on up (with a cam upgrade).

Three Piece Design. Not only is the Typhoon intake manifold compatible with stock engine accessories (such as alternator, pullies, etc.), it's constructed as a three piece design to allow easy access to the bottom and middle of the plenum chamber and the runners for additional port and plenum fine tuning.

Uses stock engine accessories. The Typhoon manifold is a direct bolt-in replacement for all 1999 to 2004 4.6 2V engines and uses the stock alternator and other stock engine accessories.

Recommended Upgrade. To realize the full power potential that this intake manifold has to offer, a cam change is highly recommended. AmericanMuscle recommends Comp Cams Stage III Xtreme Energy XE270AH Camshafts for the 1999-2004 4.6 2V Mustangs.

Application. This Typhoon Intake Manifold is designed for the 1999 to 2004 4.6L GT's and can also be used on 1996-1998 4.6 GT engines if 1999+ heads are used along with additional modifications and required parts.

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.

By installing the typhoon intake manifold, it caused the check engine light to illuminate. Is there anything a can do to prevent the light from coming on or will I need to install a tuner?

    Great product

    Bought this plenum because the factory one cracked, and was causing coolant leaks at the thermostat housing. Painted mine black along with the throttle body. I did not have any clearance. late 01 models to 04 models have a change in design with the line coming from the back of the water pump, so the plenum bowl doesnt hit. Dont know if that was the problem for Irish, but that could be the reason. Also agree with Mitchell, you will feel a bigger difference if you port the runners. if you are worried about damaging the gaskets, you can go to advance or autozone, and buy a gasket sheet, and save a couple of bucks. I had to do this, and i searched to see if PP sold a gasket kit, but no luck, so i just made my own, and it works just fine, just a little time consuming. Overall great product for a good price, and no worry about cracking.

    I agree with Irish. I got mine powder coated blue along with my TB and the only issue was the water pump clearance. Otherwise, i could definitely tell the car wasn't gasping fo air above 4500rpms with no noticeable loss down low. Great for nitrous as well.

    dont buy

    had one of these intakes on my 02 GT because I blew the factory one with nitrous. If you are running nitrous go for it. If not dont. I took mine off and went back to a stock manifold and picked up 12 RWHP and almost 20 RWTQ. The runners were not ported but were cleaned up from the previous owner to get some of the roughness off them. the stock manifold flows better for the fact that it is plastic and doesnt have any of the rough texture from the metal casting.

    super easy install!

    I was a little put out by the price at first. but I wasnt about to install another chincy O.E.M. intake. so I orded this one... I love it! the only cheaky part was the heater core feed pipe coming from the back of the water pump housing. it took a bit of tinkering but no matter. I had a mate powdercoat it flat gloss black. and no ones the wiser. shes sound as a pound and when you give it the beans she goes like a train! bottom line... BUY THIS INTAKE!

    Not Bad

    It's cast aluminum so there are some rough spots on the interior that could be cleaned up. The worst part was the manifold is in 3 pieces, and out of the box the bottom cover plate was not tight and leaked vacuum. Also, don't order the gaskets from AM, get some good Felpro gaskets. With stock cams and TB there wasn't much of a performance increase, maybe a bit at mid range but nothing to write home about. A good replacement for factory though if yours was cracked like mine.

    Good but double check pre assembled parts

    Noticeable gain in mid to upper rpm range. Goes nicely with the BBK 78mm Throttle Intake. Worth the purchase but please check and reseal the lower portions of the manifold. The bolts on mine were only finger tight and had to take it all back apart to reseal it.

    LOSS OF HP AND TORQUE

    This manifold is poorly manufactured and pre-assembled, I was shocked at how rough the runners and plenum are. Ensure you torque down all the bolts on this manifold that are pre-installed (18 lb ft), all of mine were hand tight. Also be careful when installing the upper plenum (89 lb in) these bolts will strip out very easily. I strongly recommend Fel-Pro gaskets and Standard Motor Products SK57 injector seals if your vehicle has over 75,000 miles. I am ASE certified master technician and have been a mechanic for over fifteen years. I have never seen such a poorly manufactured product for the price. After the intake swap from stock to P.P. Typhoon intake, I have lost 17RWHP an 20 LB FT of torque. My mustang is stock for now, other than this manifold and willl barely bark the tires in first gear now.

    Great and easy intake! I ddid have the problem with clearing the water return line in the valley but i didnt file the intake. I took a socket and placed it on the hard line where it wouldnt clear (I only needed like an 1/16 of an inch)and hammered it a few stricks to dent that line just a hair and worked perfect! lot better than filing the intake in my opion

    Great replacement manifold!

    I purchased this manifold due to the infamous cracking plastic stock manifold. Did the job myself and Ive never replaced a 4.6 manifold before. Bought new fuel injector o-ring and hat kits, 180 degree thermostat and used a felpro permadry intake gasket set. Fit was perfect. No issues clearing the water pump line. It does actually feel like there is a low end gain and i did not clean it up at all so that's good. Mainly I was just looking for a reliable replacement but gained performance as well! Would recommend this product to anyone looking to do away with plastic without extensive modification and having to buy extra parts.

    The bolts on this intake were not torqued, and the gasket is too thin. I had to pull the intake off & re-install with Felpro gaskets. After that, LOOKOUT! HUGE difference with just the street tune. I like how the intake "whistles" when you hit the throttle. It sounds like a turbo kicking in.

    Easy install only about 3.5 - 4 hours work in your garage. No special tools needed. Really nice upgrade to oem intake. Fits perfect. Never had to adjust my coolant tube at all. Best money i spent on my car to date. You can notice the power gain as soon as you take off. I put a 70mm bbk throttle body on with it and it makes a wicked combo!

    just got this intake to go with the head work, cams, headers, and other bolt on's. down side to this intake was that it does not clear the water tube coming out of the water pump u will need too shave down a little bit of the intake too get it too fit, other than that it is a great product had it port matched to the heads and now going to be dyno tuned to get full power out of it.

    You may need a tune!!

    I have a 1997 GT with a 2003 PI engine, C&L 70MM throttle body/upper intake, 80MM MAF, Mac Cold Air kit, Motorsport shorty headers, Basani X-pipe, Spintech side exiting exhaust, 3.73's in the rear, aluminum drive shaft and a custom tune(handheld SCT X3) and as far as installation goes everything is right on the money(except that I run off of the 1997 wiring harness and it has 2 coolant temp sensors and the manifold only has space for one sensor). NO problem what so ever installing it. You do have to do a bit of homework if you're running a PI swap. Afterwards is another story altogether. I started the car and it ran like crap. It had a rough idle and when you drove it the idle got "stuck" at 3500RPM and took about 15 seconds to go back to normal. No where in any of the instructions does it say you may need a tune after you install this product. So on top of spending 500+ dollars for the intake you may need to spend an extra 150 to 300 for a tune. The problem(at least I'm pretty sure) has to do with the air/fuel ratio. This thing better produce the 21.5 HP to wheel it promises!!

    Get the Edlebrock

    Right out of the box i noticed that this was a very poor casting of this manifold. The manifold came in three pieces which was good because it made it easier to port and polish but none of the holes lined up with the other and it was so bad that could not imagine installing this on my engine without EXTENSIVE porting, but not to the engine, i had to port match this manifold to itself before i could even assemble the manifold and then port match to the cylinder heads. Once all of this was finished I installed it to the engine. Overall fitment to the engine was good and when it came time to start it up I had no problems with water or vacuum just be careful with bolting everything together as the hardware and threaded holes are not that great. As far as performance gains there is not anything noticeable with a stock engine.

    Terrible quality right out the box

    Sitting here waiting on a 3rd replacement manifold due to casting defects. They checked this 3rd mani before sending and emailed me pics and this one looks good. Cant wait to polish it up. Normal casting marks and roughness are ok but bulges and the lower manifold alignment was cast thin in spots and alignment was out by a half inch in 2 spots. Guess thats what you get with parts made in china. I give these guys here at AM all the credit in the world for making it right with me and has resulted in finding a bad batch. I even contacted professional products to get them involved and are now aware of the problems with quality control. This is not what I expected for almost $600. So prior to this manifold idea of mine, my stang put out 250 rwhp on the dyno. As soon as this gets done itll be dyno time again n we shall see if this thing has all that dyno proven 21.5 hp increase.

    So So product

    This product first off does help really helps out your top end doesnt struggle much at all between 3500 and 6000 rpm like it seems to with stock intake manifold. Although i personally have had idling problems due to a vacuum leaks. The first leak was in the lower intake manifold. One of the bolts was either over or under torqued i say this cuz the bolt was not completely tight. I ended up taking the lower intake apart to put some gasket sealer on the gasket for the lower intake then when i went to put it back together the same hole where the bolt was loose was stripped out dont know how or why but it was so ended up having to drill the whole out and tap it and then use a bigger bolt. I currently have developed a new vacuum leak right where it bolts to the block and will be fixing that here in the next couple days. Altogether i would say it was a fairly easy install but i dont think i would purchase this manifold again i would most likely go with the edelbrock if i could do it over.
