Ghetto Blaster?

Post by XxBlackNeonxX » Thu Jun 10, 2010 10:13 am

Lately I have been thinking about making one of these :quotes: "Ghetto Blaster" intake manifolds and was wondering if I could use the extra intake I have lying around for my 03? Most of the time I hear about some one doing this it seems like they always use a 1gn manifold. Also, will this make a difference for my car or am I better off saving up and getting a real intake?

^ Wish you woulda told me that earlier. I wanted a GB so hard for some reason.

OP, you just need a SOHC intake manifold from any year IIRC.

The 1gn's are just a bit easier to work with, but the 2gn one has been done. The 1gn runners are not glued together like the 2gn. They are one molded piece. I think a 2gn one might outflow a 1gn tho. I think the runners might be a tad larger, except where they mate to the head. They are prolly equal there.

Just use a different brand of plastic weld than Loctite. They have since changed it, and it isn't worth shit.

A 1gn upper is easier to use since it has equal length primaries. You'll want to look into using a large plenum, like 3-4". You can buy all the parts to go down to 2.5" inlet, which will give you plenty of area to upgrade to a 60MM TB which is around 2.36". Remember, shorter primaries are better for top end, longer primaries are better for midrange power. If you have an NGC car, you can't get an ECU to raise the rev limiter. I'd just cut the primaries to a longish length and put the plenum on right there.

Power is directly proportionate to the size of you wallet.

Keeping the stock TB, I didn't really notice much difference between mine and the stock IM. You are still flowing the same amount of air. You may see some higher rpm difference if you go with a short runner, but the lower rpm torque will suffer. Not something you want with an ATX.

When the inlet, and the TB are both 60mm, then you will notice an increase in power.

Mine begins to make a decent difference at ~3000 rpm and up. 60 mm Ford TB bolted directly to the end of the tube. But it also has decent part throttle pull below 3000 rpm. I have 100% of the 1gn runners attached to the tube. Angle cut for maximum inlet size.

1993 to 1998 Ford 5.0 liter engines IIRC. 56mm is about ideal, but you will only find those for the V6 app's It is a bored out stock 49mm TB.

56mm BBK

Otherwise you can score the 60mm units for anywhere between $25 and up.

If you don't want to pay to have someone fab an adapter plate for the Ford TB, you can always just go with the Modern Performance 60mm TB. No adapter needed for the oem type set up. Just a silicone coupler, or two.
