Intake adapter plate question

Does anyone know what kind of "commonly available adapter plates" Trickflow is referring to regarding this intake?

In all honesty, you don't need adapter plates, just some RTV where the gaskets from the PI patter differs from the NPI heads our cars have. If you really want adapters, Livernois performance can sell them to you for $300.

Most people use the RTV method, but I can certainly understand why Trick Flow would tell you that you need adapters. All it would take is for one person to put it on incorrectly and overheat his motor and then it would be whining and complaining about Trick Flow's horrible product.

Yep. Definately cheaper to refer you to a company that sells adapters and keeps them making only one version of the manifold, saving them production costs. Don't be surprised if Trick Flow creates an adapter of their own for that very reason...more of your money goes to them and their parts.

Do you guys think this intake is going to be a big hit for us 4.6ers? Depending on others expierence with it and my budget I might be using it when I do my PI swap.
