Hey,

I finally got a little money to spend and I don't now where to go..either I going to get the new Trick Flow intake or go with a set cams. Both are about the same money. So has any body installed the new intake on their ride do you like it or was it the bigest waste yet? What cams do you suggest for a mostly street driven car?

98 GT
PI heads and Intake
Headers
5 Speed
3.73 geat
Trick flow Elbow
75 mm throttle body

you wont gain much from a new intake manifold

i would build up rear end, do cams, or juice it

stock pi intakes flow very well and dont gain much with an aftermarket. cams will be a lot better investment. we did a typhoon on a 99 gt and it was a BIG waste. lost power till 4k then it came alive, but then again it was the typhoon too.

Thanks.. I did the heads myself so the cams can't be that big of a stretch..any suggestions on the brand..I really don't want to change the valve springs. If pushed I will replace them. The PI heads are still new maybe less than 20,000 miles

a stage one cam wont require springs, most stage 2's will. if it were me i would go ahead and do a stage 2 along with springs.
