    [MENTION=13598]Gibbo205[/MENTION] would be running something close to this. It isn't a true replacement for a supercharger and you will lose some low end torque with the 350 IM. But still a decent performance mod

    Alternative options are a CJ mani or the holley sniper. GT350 TB is a waste and makes almost no difference from all the testing I've seen.

    Is this a realistic fit for our model Mustang?

    The manifold is even cheaper at Levittown Ford
    http://www.levittownfordparts.com/ford-performance-mustang-gt350-manifold-coyote-intake-p-4652.html

    Pony Parts Australia are their distributor over here and could possibly get the shipping right down

    My only concern would be finding someone willing to tune it.
    Would Lund possibly be an option going down this path [MENTION=21513]Burkey[/MENTION]

    Absolutely. [MENTION=13598]Gibbo205[/MENTION] has had plenty of success with Lund and the GT350IM. The TB he was having issues with, but it seems that they may have found a solution to that one also.
    This is EXACTLY why I rate Lund. Theyve tuned that many possible configurations and combinations now, you'd be hard pressed to stump them.
    Except fuel. They don't seemto like our fuel much, but we're working on that. ;)

    In regards to losing bottom end with this manifold, I'm not entirely sure that's the case. Don't quote me on that. [MENTION=13598]Gibbo205[/MENTION] would be able to add value to that conversation.
    The Cobra Jet IM and others of that type will lose some of the bottom end, that seems to be a theme that pops up over and over again and it makes sense when you look at them.
    Pretty sure Gibbo said he's only giving away 10hp by not running the GT 350 TB. Again, not entirely sure on that figure, but it wasn't enough to make it a "must have" in the equation.

    Hi there



    You be better of contacting Autonation White Bear Lake Ford and Levittown Ford for quotes on:
    - GT 350 IM - $875
    - GT 350 TB - $145
    - GT 350 CAI with duct - $200
    - FRPP separator for both left and right banks. $145 each

    That gives you a GT 350 stock looking setup and the GT 350 CAI is a touch bigger and has less vacuum lines so neater.

    See what Ford quote you, I've put target prices next to each and just pray for cheap shipping!


    My car made 410HP stock.
    With PMAS CAI & Lund custom tune it made 472HP
    With GT 350 IM, 350 CAI and stock TB it made 497HP
    With GT 350 IM, 350 CAI and 350 TB is made 516HP

    All runs on same dyno with Lund tune fully customised.

    The 350 TB is ever so slightly touchy on cold running during cold weather such as 0c, something you Australian folk do not have to worry about and other than that the 350 TB gives the car a deeper sound and nicer longer pedal travel.

    Also you can revv has high as 8000rpm without power falling off, new peak power is 7200-7300rpm and I change gear at 7500-7700rpm. :)

    Are you using the stock bonnet or have you invested in a RAM air hood also?

    What is your opinion on them?

    So basically, you're seeing similar gains to a car running CAI And headers. What sort of gains would you now expect with headers fitted to your setup? 50hp?
