Bullitt intake manifold, worth it?

Is doing a Bullitt intake manifold really worth it to run on a supercharged application versus the stock PI intake manifold w/ aluminum crossover?

The Bullitt intake is a great upgrade for supercharged engines that don't operate over 6500rpms. It has actually outperformed even the aftermarket offerings below 6000rpms. On a naturally aspirated car, the gains aren't worth the expense, but supercharged, definately.

Just make sure you can get the throttle cable with it, because Ford doesn't make them anymore and they're getting harder to find by the day.

Thanks for the heads up on that. I did find one on ebay for $678 shipped but didn't say if it had the cable. It did have the throttle body though.

I have to give a disclaimer here also:

Peak to Peak, you probably won't see more than a 8-10rwhp difference, but the Bullitt intake's performance throughout the curve makes it a much better performing intake. If you have to have peak HP gains to satisfy you, it may not be worth it, but if you want gains throughout the range, then it's worth looking into.

On the dyno, my car made the same peak HP as a guy with the same mods with a PI intake with plenum and throttle body, but mine was higher throughout the entire curve, except for peak, where they were equal. When he drove my car, he actually commented that it felt stronger throughout. I was also .3 faster at the track, how much of that was driving is subjective though.

I've seen great torque gains because of this manifold and was hoping that would come into play on the supercharged end. I know some setups where, just throwing out numbers, a guy makes 600rwhp but only 475-510rwtq. I'm hoping the Bullitt manifold will help up that some more. Any additional peak gain is just a bonus to me.

It needs to be factory aka SMOG legal for Cali use. That's why the Bullitt and no other intakes.

Most overrated intake IMO. Stick with the PI until you hit 550-600rwhp


Single 67mm turbo, ported pi heads, edelbrock vic jr. manifold w/HPP plenum, terminator shortblock, return fuel system... Goal 600+ rwhp.
