the lower intake is pretty small, and from what ive read its not worth doing that to a stock intake manifold..if you have a little extra cash, you can pick up a cobra intake for about $200 and thatd be worth it

id have to agree. spend a couple of bucks and grab a cobra or explorer intake, and then spend some time a polish that one up. still wont see a whole lot of power gains tho.

well with that cobra you will mostly see a gain in torque and probably about 10-20hp gain in low to mid range rpm

Depends on who's porting it. The lower intake is very restrictive (especially the front no.1 and no. 5 runners) so it doesn't take much work to improve it substantially. Contact tmoss. He's the intake porting expert and is very capable of extracting a lot of HP/TQ out of stock parts.

Not worth the time or money to port a stock intake unless youir doing it your self.....If you plan on having some one else do it then IMO its a waste of money

Probably true and that also applies to the stock E7 heads. I ported my own stock intake/heads and with all the other bolt-ons, my Stang put down 229rwhp/277rwtq which was 61rwhp/59rwtq more than stock. Pretty good, I thought, until I did the Edelbrock Performer intake swap ($182 from ebay). That added a further 15rwhp/7rwtq and 1mpg so really, you might as well swap in a better intake from the outset.

if your not lookin to spend more then 200-250 bucks, take a look on craigslist for a nice used one. edelbrock performer is good, (i personally dont like the RPM intake) or trick flow is very popular.
