Edelbrock Victor Jr 4.6 intake manifold installed...

A few weeks back I took my 03gt to MustangSpecialties for some goodies . They install an Edelbrock jr intake manifold, BBK fuel rails, and got a tune... It changed the power band a little... I lost about 20hp on the bottom end, but gained about 20hp on the top end... I am very happy with the results, and like the way it looks... Thank you to the guys at MustangSpecialties for doing a great job

Dyno Before- 252.48hp/266.77tq - stock manifold/rails
Dyno After - 255.40hp/302.29tq - edelbrock jr manifold/bbk rails

here's a picture

Nice upgrade Rob!
I'd like to see the before and after dyno graphs if you can post them.
Thanks!

re: Edelbrock Victor Jr 4.6 intake manifold installed...

Yea I just called up John... now I see it, I was reading it wrong...
boss96 you are right... it's the other way... I posted it backwards...

Dyno Before- 255.40hp/302.29tq - stock manifold/rails
Dyno After - 252.48hp/266.77tq - edelbrock jr manifold/bbk rails


Well it's a building block... looks like the procharger will have to come sooner than later...

re: Edelbrock Victor Jr 4.6 intake manifold installed...

I have an Edelbrock intake at home waiting to go on the car and that is why I was wondering about your dyno tests. I even called Specialties and asked them about it
Anyway, I would think you need some good cams and maybe some ported heads to go with that combo and then you should see a much better power peak, just higher up in the rev band which is what is supposed to happen.
Since I have a vortech I hope to extend the power band a little and see an increase in power overall. Getting a 6061 intake elbow should be helpful too.

Check out 6061.com they make a nice elbow that will fit the intake without an adapter.

When you do add it on let me know what happens... as far as if it extends your power band...

re: Edelbrock Victor Jr 4.6 intake manifold installed...

Like I said though, if you put some cams in the motor I'm sure you will see a good gain. The purpose of that intake is to extend high rpm power like any other single plane intake. Another guy on this bbs has it along with heads/cam and ran high 11's with it, so it is not a bad intake if you set it up right.
I'll let you guys know how it works out on my car, I'm hoping to see maybe a 40hp gain just by reving it out more and seeing more boost.

re: Edelbrock Victor Jr 4.6 intake manifold installed...

as already stated that intake needs good cams or boost to make power...once you add those it will pay off for you.

re: Edelbrock Victor Jr 4.6 intake manifold installed...

i had ported heads and a stage 1 cams, and it only gained a few horses. i only gained good power after i put my MHS stage 3.5 cams in, and spun it to 7k. the edelbrock just kill's the torque of a stock car

and i run the 6061 plenuim with a 2" spacer, its a pretty bad ass upper
