1996 Mustang 4.6GT 2V heads/intake


Please can someone help???

I have a 1996 4.6 Gt 2V that is still stock standard.

As we all know the original intake for the 96/98 was a disaster.

I suppose on the upside mine has given 80000 miles of good service.

Not so good though is that it is now starting to leak

I would like to replace it with a cast aluminum one if possible. However I CANNOT find a cast unit to bolt on without having to change to the PI heads.

So, if i have to change the heads, can one fit a 4V head to the current 2V block??

If so what would you need to change?

If that cannot be done does anyone know of a cast unit that is available for the stock 96/98 motor?

Or what PI heads are a good all round package?

If i have to stick with the 2V setup, what needs to be changed for the motor to accomodate the newer PI heads?

dont waste time putting 4v stuff on a 2v...

my intake cracked and i replaced it with an updated npi intake but many memebers throw a PI intake on the npi heads...its a very simple swap and a very good hp per dollar ratio...trick flow makes a aluminum intake but its a PI intake just made of aluminum. I say (as will others) to just get a PI intake and a few other odds and ends that will probably be under $300 bucks for everything if you buy brand new...you can also find a used PI intake for $140 and less...putting a PI intake on NPI heads will net you around 20hp...hope that helps

Hey,

thanks for the info.

I got in touch with trick flow, they do not have a PI intake for STD heads (Non PI)

This motor is totally original, does anyone know about a PI intake for the std Heads??

yes, there is a sticky at the top of the section for how to do it my friend. very simple swap and u can pick up 18+ ponies.

also what you are needing is the aluminum cross over, not an aluminum intake as you wont gain anything worth while besides a lighter wallet

^yes. the "latest" npi and pi both have the aluminum crossover- we're saying get the pi one

and you can put the pi intake (with the aluminum crossover) on your npi heads using pi gaskets and some silicone. worked fine for casper, matt, me, and many others. a nice kick-for-buck ratio

If you are looking for a easy 15-18 horse bolt on go to the P.I, you are going to pay the same price or close you might as well take advantage of the better runner design of the P.I. There are several great write-ups on how to do it, being one of the easiest mods it is well worth it to do it.

If you wanna drop $500 on it livernois motorsports makes a modified pi intake with a few extra parts that you can put onto npi heads.

But for that much you could do a full pi swap.

got the intake for 30, 30 for the gaskets, 10 in heater hose, 3 for clamps, and the rest is coolant... all can be purchased at your autoparts store with the exception of the intake... and you dont need the adaptor plates if thats why any1 thinks you need to drop 500.
