Looks like it would be good for certain applications. But you'd need to buy a different TB, aftermarket fuel rails, and it looks like it doesn't have the heater hose connector at the right rear corner.

I had that happen with some spark plug wires. When I ordered it said three weeks from the order date. Three weeks later I check and it now says three more weeks from the order date. I wish Summit would just tell you, "Hey look, we're sorry but we can't get you that part."

unless you are running some big boost and or keeping the revs up in a circle track or drift it would be pointless for a street car. I can imagine low rpm torque suffers bad on a mild NA motor?

Well I don't run boost, don't run circle track, and wouldn't be caught dead doing any gayass "drifting".

The car that uses that manifold sould either be just for show or for serious high rpm racing.

Supposedly my carb version of this with the 6MOD ignition controller shipped from Jeg's today. But per David at Edelbrock as of today the castings are in house and being machined, should be ready for shipment next Friday. Someone is lying, we'll see who.

They did a buildup of the 4.6L 2V with that intake in the April edition of Hot Rod. Wait... OMG I get magazines from the future!

According to the dyno test I've seen, you couldn't be more wrong about this intake. It is not weak kneed down low.

i can say one thing to the old 'high rpm only' when dealing with a square bore carb padded intake.


plenum divider. they sell cheap and add loads of low end to a single plane.

96 gt. .93 teksid ported 4V, forged, 64mm turbo,sniper tune, BA2600maf, 90/10's, granitelli rear LCA's, 3.90's, QA-1 200in/lb fronts, tubular everything, coil overs.

2011GT, 300A, base model, 3.73, brembos, spoiler delete, candy red. current mods: lethal off road x-pipe, airraid cai, lethal 93 tune, roush axle back mufflers

My friend just picked one up for me to use on a motor I am building for him. Probably another month or 2 before that one is running. Its going to be carbed as well (and mega cammed and mega compression)

Here is another place for a carb intake http://www.hiperformancesolutions.com/
Here is a Hot Rod buil d up of a 4.6 useing that Edelbrock intake ,, it gave a base line with a 650cfm holly of HP 288 Tq 282 ,, at the end they were getting 370HP.
Here is the link http://www.hotrod.com/techarticles/e...ine/index.html
I remember reading a big shoot out with a like 6 or more intakes for the 4.6 ,, the last one they did was the carb intake and it seem to do quite well as i recall ,,, i looked for that articale but cant find it ,,, seems like it was Hot Rod or maybe Fast Mustangs and fast Fords.

I would like to see some real world unbiased results for this. I think Edelbrock has their stuff together so I am hoping for the best...I just dont know.

Chris

Soon to have some MHS parts, cams, 'luminum block, lower compression, ported heads, autorotor, and need to make long tubes. I have almost all the stuff and need some #42-50s a bypass valve, and maybe a few other things.
