Scott, you might wanna ask over at the Depot... There are people running blowers with the PI intakes, so If you are speaking on a matter of it being a bottle neck at somepoint after running too much N/A power, I don't think this is a possibilty. PI intake seems to be the best bang for the buck right now NA, Just gotta wait around for a good replacement... Same deal went down with the EFI 5.0's, look how many available intakes there are for them now. There is the SVO and the Bullitt, the RR and the P51, and a few others I can't remember off the top of my head but unless you are running some kind of stroker motor or PA, It's probably not even worth it. I would leave good enough alone for now.

96 4.6 XR7 (T45 Swap, etc.)
97 4.6 Mustang Cobra (28k Miles)
95 4.9 F150 4X4 M5R2)

Ported PI heads/comp cams/pi intake on a stock NPI bottom end? Maybe I'm wrong, but I'd think 270rwhp is possible with a combination like that. 96Goldbird had 245 with ported NPI heads/comp cams... so add a PI intake and the compression boost and it is possible. Now whether your stock bottom end will like that I can't say. Mike's car was being very safely tuned for just that reason.

96 Mustang GT 5spd. w/ 248A Option (GTS). Stock for now until I get the Roush on.

97 Thunderbird 4.6L LX /w Sport Package
24k B&M Cooler, 1" lowered, Steeda UD Pulleys, Dynomax cat-back, J-mod, 3.73's, PI intake, PI cams, 03 GT MAF/Tube, SCT tuned - Gone but not forgotten.
