    Cant go wrong with a GT40. Even a ported cobra, you can find those pretty cheap. And they would be a good match. Whats goin on with that KB?

    The rpm is good for a mild....and I mean MILD car but those 165 will be pushing the limit on it. The track heat and systemax are GREAT street mani's that make good power down low and will still pull hard up top.

    i email trickflow and heres what they said:

    If you want more low end torque use the street intake. You
    will make about 20 more ft lbs. of torque with that intake
    over the track heat intake.

I didn't wanna post anything like for sale because im fairly new here but I am selling this on another board and I just thought this was the right time to eek it in :p

    I vote for the GT40 intake and have the lower ported. My mods and numbers are in my sig and my intake is untouched. I did open the throttle body inlet alittle with a drimel tool but the lower is untouched.

    well its been sitting here for like 2 years so, I doubt it's going anywhere, its pretty cheap for a brand new one, I don't know why I don't get any bites, maybe too many big combos where I'm posting to have anyone interested :/
