alright. so im thinking about putting pi heads on my 98 but i want to clear a few things up first... 1) if i swap to PI heads do i have to get the pi intake manifold? and 2) do the PI heads require 93+ octane fuel?
thanks

Yes, the advantage to the pi swap is the increased airflow from the manifold. No, you don;t have to run 93 octane fuel.

all the pi manifold is is the aluminum cross over correct?

I don't remember if you HAVE to get the PI manifold. I believe you do. The ports all line up a little different.

The PI manifold has larger squarer ports and an aluminum cross over. The intake is worth about 19hp on a set of NPI heads. The heads add up to the rest of the 50hp or so upgrade.

You do not need to run 93 octane, but the compression ratio is sligtly higher. You are well within the cars ability to run it smoothly, but a tune is always good.

Top half is Cervinis Cut out of a hood that came off my buddies wrecked fox body, the bottom half is stock.i cut out my stock hood out, placed the top half in place and glassed it together,I made the hood a few years ago.

Here is a better pic of it.

Thanks. The wheels were American Racing 200S Wheels 17x9.5 front and back with 1 inch wheel spacers out back.(Sold them after i painted the spokes black) for $280 :mad:,There the wheels that look like daisies.


Any ways... Back on topic lol.

No, it has a better runner design that produces more air flow and more power. The aluminum crossover was just Ford correcting a design flaw that cost them big $$ on the recall. The plastic xovers crack eventually.

330cube, I still think you should just custom fab a scoop in the center of your hood out of fiberglass.

I could.Im just lazy...

I think im going to leave it out of the hood for a while and see if it grows on me.Most of the people that have seen it in person thinks it looks sick.And although its my car i like to to be something enjoyable for others to look at.

It seems if your motors through the hood or your car is tubed people get all Excited, lol...

i was going to say something like that, although what i would do is buy another cowl hood, maybe 3-4 inch, then put the hood scoop on that. the only reason i say to start with a new hood is that i'm not sure how a hood scoop will look with the top part of the Cervinis hood. although i could be completely wrong. i just cant picture it. :eek:
