Hey guys, help me out. I have been looking for a new intake for my car, to be used with 98 GT Heads with PI Cams. Some people say I cannot use the PI intake with my setup and others say I can. What exactly are the issues involved and can they be fixed with relative ease? I got a guy who wants to sell me an 02 intake with TB. Should I get it?

No don't get it. You can't use it. The ports on the PI are more rectangle and the ports on Non-PI are more oval. It would work but there would be a gross misalignment of the intake ports. Anyone correct me if I'm wrong.

Could either the heads or the intake be ported to match each other?

You could get it port matched but why? PI have more than just shape of ports. There are a lot of differences. What I would do is P&P the GT heads and use a FRPP performance intake manifold. The P&P GT heads will flow better in the high RPM range then P&P PI heads.

Do you have any idea how much those FRPP intakes COST?? Well over a Grand.... I figured port matching would be cheaper.....

I already got screwed enough on that forum. I mailed a guy a check and he decided to sell the intake to someone else for 10 bucks more. At least he mailed my check back.... Mailed out $220 to a guy for PI cams, still haven't heard a peep from him...So far, not a good track record....

I sold my heads to Johnny Langton. Sorry.
