    I was debating on which intake to get for my 97 GT...

    it currently has full bolt ons, auto, and am putting on a SQ trim mongoose kit

    I asked MPH which intake they thought was the best and they said the bullitt intake is the best intake for boost'd applications

    Now, i didn't mention that i have non pi heads, does this matter??

    also, does anybody know a site that sells the bullitt intake manifold? Will i need to change anything else considering i still have the non pi heads?? price of the intake??

    just general feedback on this intake please?? thanks guys

    There is alot more to it than just simply swapping intakes; you need a new alternator, alternator bracket, throttle body (and all the other air intake components) and possibly new fuel rails, but I'm probably also forgetting some things.
    The Intake itself can be rather expensive, usually around $800 is what I've seen; and I don't know of any places that just outright sell the manifold, so your best bet would be to get one used.
    As far as the NPI heads are concerned, I would imagine it'd be the same thing with swapping on a PI intake; but I'm absolutely guessing here.

    Have you considered any of the SVO components?

    The intake and install kit will run you a few bucks more then a PI...like $1300...you can have a Bullit Intake port matched to NPI heads...I know someone who has it done. His heads are ported heavily from Renegade Racing though.

    I know you said you just wanted feedback on the bullit but i have to tell you that its not the best for f/i. Reichard Racing 4.6 intake is the best there is. And trickflow is coming out with one in the spring.

    While the Bullit is not the "be all end all" intake manifold, I'm sure it is better for his specific application than a RR intake; not to mention how expensive the Reichard manifold is.

    I talked to mike he wants 700 bucks for tune. Sounds a little steep no? Its 500 for the tune and 200 for room on his laptop or somthing like that.

    hmmm...that does seem high. Thats wierd that they would charge you that much for a head gasket though when theyre charging me close to the same amount for a s/c install plus a dyno tune...keep looking around, maybe you can find better prices...i honestly wouldn't mind paying the price though because they are probably the best mustang shop for our year cars in the area...you know you get what your paying for, and a tune is very important
