Ported -n- Polished Intake Plenum

Ok, maybe not a whole lot of porting (except for getting rid of the ugly transitions), but a well polished and smoothed stock Thunderbird intake upper plenum that went through my extensive work.

I don't have flow or dyno numbers, but this thing definately improves flow greatly (if you don't notice it, send it back for a refund!)

I'd like $60 obo shipped. SOLD!

If no one is interested in this, I COULD sweeten the deal up a bit.

I will port match and polish a brand new 75mm throttle body to this upper plenum elbow and sell the combination for $140 shipped.

Price Reduction!

Alright, price drop. $60 for plenum, $140 for plenum + 75mm throttle body (ported and polished as single unit).

I have a stock TB & PnP Plenum on my Bird right now, and it's definately worth it. All I have done to my 1995 (that's right, a 95) Bird engine is U/D pulleys, CAI, PI Intake and that polished plenum. My car runs good & strong, and gets almost 30 mpg (not to mention, it sounds great even with the stock exhaust - all my friends say it's the only car in town that sounds like that).

Oh yeh, it was definately worth it. I haven't bolted on a 75mm throttle body yet, but that's next. Then the modding gets serious.....

Just so you know I've been really interested in getting thuis but right now I'm trying to get my audio system upgraded. I still of course still have the old intake and I'm not sure if I'll go with a PI intake but I may at least update it with the '96/7 intake just to get the car ready for whenever I do a PI engine swap.

If you sell this one soon do you think you'll do more???

Excellent! I'm glad you are pleased. Be sure to set the base idle with that new throttle body first, then adjust the TPS to 0.9v at closed throttle.

Hey Rick, Did you ever get around to making another one of these?

Also I'm sure you just got busy and forgot but can I have the other rebuilt door hinge I bought from you
