Funny thing is, within this very thread, every single answer to what's needed and how to do the PI intake swap has been posted. Who's not reading past first sentences again?

Don't mistake my lightheartedness as a weakness. I can at least still plead ignorance despite the knowledge I think I have.

From all the articles and posts you still can't determine which gaskets to use?

This is day 5 of posts, I think I did 2 days of scraping info, ordered the parts, had them all in hand, and had the crossover at a machine shop to be drilled and tapped at 5 days. From start to finish I was at a week. I had to swap the intake, mine had cracked dumped all the coolant at once (causing me to nearly spin out in it).

There was .001% of the information available 10 years ago than there is today. It was still debated and argued that it couldn't be done. More people used nPI gaskets then, even with the number of mismatches versus using PI gaskets. There are even kits (that come with intake, gaskets, nipple, coolant tube, etc) and adapter plates (haven't seen them recently though).

All this bantering for a modification that will gain you ZERO performance benefits.

Zero performance benefits from a PI intake swap?

Even going from a 96/97 nPI intake setup to PI there is a gain.

Going from a boat anchor EGR clogged aluminum intake and according case intake to a PI intake is an even bigger gain.

I didn't drive my 97 Cougar with just the PI intake swap for long, but there was an obvious seat of the pants difference. While most of my gains and drivability came from the JMod and a tune with minor supporting things, I don't think it would have been the same without the PI intake.

LOL .. im messing with you. Chill out bro.

I should say, VERY SMALL performance gain. I dont believe its that noticeable. Sorry, my cars have DOHC engines, Superchargers, 400 HP, etc .. if it doesnt involve a full on PI head swap its not a very big performance gain. Whats big to you guys is small fries to me I guess, so we can just agree to disagree.

I just finished a 2.2L 4 cylinder to 4.3L V6 swap in my brother in law's Chevy S10. Did I go to the S10 forum and kick up a big dust storm ?? No, I just threw it all together and made it happen.

I don't disagree, I chalk a lot of the PI intake's change in feel on my car to the fact that I started with a 94/5 with an even worse intake. I barely noticed any difference at all going to PI heads/cams, the gain is there in the E/Ts but the car doesn't feel different on the street at all. Gears trans converter and tune are what are really noticable.

Pointless to be helpful even when you declare ignorance without others pointing a finger.
