I've lost count of the # of V8s I've beaten at the local 1/8th miles track; the man isn't lying by any means.

For the nonbelievers:

The other day in my dreams, I raced an 02 GT with intake and exhaust and beat him from a dig. I left off idle and he launched it, if I would have footbraked my car I would have pulled him right away. In the vid I dropped my phone under the seat, but you can hear him do a ricer flyby at the end lol.

You're correct the 2010 still have the 4.6 in them...

OMG! That sounds so mean. I wonder how long it took you to construct it and finish it. You should make a DIY of it.

I know this is kind of old but still a very interesting project. The Mandrel bent pipes are easy to get but where can you find a place in CA to machine weld an maf mount?

Darkstar can you provide specs?

Been doing lots of R&D on this intake, hoping to have some great results in the future, but time has been limited due to being busy at the shop.
