The last of the Tickfords the 5.6 litre has something similar except with 1 big mother of a TB rather than 2. I'd say they would be pretty hard to get hold of though.

theres a joint called walker performance that do them. unfortunantly they are really only money well spent if you have a really powerful motor. They do look nice though!

i was going to say this, but sam12h already did- so i'l quote him.

"dont waste your money. i stopped buyin street machine after reading that article. i seem to know alot more about the 5.0L windsor than whoever wrote that article. why would you spend $2k to change the upper HO manifold and not the lower? the lower is the restriction needing porting or replacing. see here http://forums.stangnet.com/showthread.php?t=334773 2. intake flowrates

the rpm II is a far better manifold, as is the bbk and holley systemax II (if only i could fit the airbox and maf on the drivers side to use the holley) + more and these all sell brand new from aussie suppliers at half the price of that stupid twin inlet plenum. running twin throttles will also achieve nothing without twin airboxes (and twin mafs, try working out that one with the eec). if you want some useful info read some of the mustang mags from the us. start here http://mustang50magazine.com/techarticles/
"

by the way, the rpm2 sells for about 1200.
