    Typhoon Intake says 21 more to the wheels for 530 bucks??? Think it's worth it? Looks like a solid intake. Think I would see some good gains from it? Also Don't have fog lights but im going to pick up a pair and keep it in the garage along with everything else I have. Says on my car I have all the wiring and everything for them. So does that mean all I have to do is buy the fogs with the brackets and everything is ready to just plug right in? Gettting ready to do some work on the car for a change this weekend hopefully since it looks like I'll finally have some time.

    if you gave me one i wouldnt put it on my car. that intake has had alot of problems. they are not sealing on the block where the thermostat is so they are spraying water. i havent seen no where near the gains they are claiming. i have heard they are rought on the inside but can be ported and polished. i did see on another forum where a bunch of people had bought them and everyone of them said it was a mistake. just wait until the others come out this spring. :drunk:

    seems to be the only PP intakes that aren't having fitment issues are the fully polished ones...could they be spending more time on the more expensive versions?

    That's correct.


    They did have initial quality issues, which were blow out of proportion by forums, as most forums do.

    I'll have some feedback for you hear shortly.

    On the inside - my builder has installed 6 of these intakes, with no issues, just a washer on one of the plenum mounts.
    and all customers replied that it felt better in the mid RPM range.
    he also said he looked at the new trick flow model at SEMA, and said they look Very similar.
    So there's some real world feedback for ya. :)

    Anyone know of my fog light issue. Was reading some stuff saying that it comes pre wired? So do I need to just buy th house and bracket and basically plug um in?

    You should have all the wiring, there should be one main wiring harness system for the mustang
    there's alot of connectors that don't go to the upgrades you don't have on the car like the mach 460 wiring in the doors

    We'll see how mine turns out.
    If it' sucks, It's coming back off.

    BUT, this leaking issue is blown WAAAY out of proportion in the fourms.
    so the first batch had some issues....

    remember, you can't believe everything you read on the internet.
