    You get what you pay for. DO NOT buy that intake, or anything from PP for that matter. My buddy had that intake and it fit like shit, coolant leaked and the finish faded really quickly so he sent it back. I have a TB from them and the holes didn't line up with the intake studs, I had to bore them out with a drill to make it fit.

    Buy the Holley or Trickflow piece, waaaayy better quality.

    I didn't say every single product they make doesn't work. They don't have a good track record though...search around then net too.

    Yep, don't buy PP. It's a hit or a miss. Spend little more on a Trickflow or Edelbrock and have better gains.

    i bought a used PP intake non polished and polished it myself. even tho i port matched the intake to my heads, everything fit fine. my MSD distributor cap rubbed a little bit but that was an easy fix. just shaved some of the material off.

    i also run a 70mm PP throttlebody without a problem but i did the Fox TB conversion on mine.

    for the price i payed for it, it was well worth it.
