Fuel injected 460 truck application.The distributor will be interesting. I'll look into options. I just don't know how the EEC-IV type computer will react if you're not using it to fire a distributor.
Ah very cool. I think most of the 7.5 injected distributors use a remote mounted TFI module, but that's easy enough to accommodate. Thanks for the heads up.
Is it for street or race?? I find a ported Exploder cast GT-40 intake to be just about the best torque building intake(street) I used a 70mm throttle body and a 75mm MAF, 24 lb inj. to feed a bored 5.0, AFR185 heads Comp Cam XE270, JBA midlength headers, with a "cleaned up" cast GT-40.
When I moved up to a 331 Stroker, I had T-Moss port the GT-40 lower used a, 75mm TB, Lunati 272 VooDoo cam and 30lb injectors. It's a Beast!
Which ever intake, (Trick Flow is a good looking intake) you choose, match your MAF/TB/Cam/heads & rear gears combo, so that they all work together. Taking a stock roller 5.0 and using a big High flow intake, 90mm TB & MAF w/42 lb inj. isnt going to work well. Especially on the street. Camed right you may have peak HP, though no bottom end. Peaky even for the track.
Sooo what combo are you looking at?? To do what with?? It' always fun to compare combos with others.
So - for review:Ive been waiting for this intake for years. Has anyone used it. What fuel rails and ECU are needed? Wire harness ect?
I gave up on using that combo years ago. That was about the only option for a 5.8 out there when I bought them in 98 or so. It sits sad and neglected next to the Vortech R-trim I'll probably never get around to using either.That certainly is a good way to go. I did it myself with my '95 GT. but the cost of the 5.8L upper, the Cobra intake and then the Extrude Honing is probably more expensive than the Trick Flow upper/lower. Also, the Cobra intake is very limiting on a 5.8L based motor, even if it is Extrude Honed. If you ever want to increase the power of your motor, your intake will certainly be you limiting factor (depending on your heads of choice of course).
I recommend you get a book. Dyno Proven Ford Performance. They take a motor and try various parts (intakes, throttle bodies, cams, etc) and show the dyno results. You woukd be surprised the power even the Trick Flow box intake makes on a 5.0L based stroker without losing any on the bottom end.
