Ride: EF XR8 & 2002 GSXR-1000

Location: Perth
WA, Australia

Found this link on ebay.

A) I have been told there may be issues fitting this under my EF bonnet. Anyone know if it will fit comfortably?

2) Can I leave it mounted so the intake is facing to the drivers side? This will make my cooler piping a lot easier. I am pretty sure I can, but just want comfirmation.

E) Has anyone dealt with the Mustang Warehouse (ebay) in US. What are they like to deal with? Happy with purchases?

12) Is it worth going for the 90mm throttle body opening over the 75mm one?

J) Is that a decent price (remembering it is USD)?

Cheers
Damon

You'll have to modify your accelerator cable but I'm not sure what else. Probably a bit of wiring.

Its not a bad price seeing as its got the throttle body as well. But you'll pay about $200-300 shipping.

It doesn't have the throttle body Pete. It just has the throttle body opening.

Sh*t. I didn't think shipping would be that much.

I did see that throttle body "opening" bit. Kind of assumed that the intake manifold would have an opening. :lol: Yeah shipping can be quite a lot, especially for the unprepared.

yeah i looked at getting a manifold over and it was gogint to coct me 350+, that is just ridiculous. Unless you can find a really good deal, which is quite possible. Try summit, they have some very good deals on.

You should talk to Flyz cause he is selling a Trickflow manifold with modified fuel rail and 75mm throttle body.
He is on the Perth E Series site.

with that trick flow tfs manifold, i highly doubt u wil fit it under the standard bonnet it is 8 inches taller than the normal trickflow. that is a hell of a difference. when u think about it, the standard manifold prob only sits min of prob 4-5 inches below bonnet. so it would be a tight squeeze. although if u had a bonnet buldge. :lol:

Damon,

It fits under bonnet on a 5.0.
It will face in either direction.
It is only worth using the 90mm opening if your engine needs it....most do not....same goes for this intake generally.
Haven't delt with mustang warehouse. I believe High Peformance world is the TFS dealer in Oz.
As timmeh says....Flyz has one for sale.

Pete.
