I was wondering if anyone runs a p.i f-150 intake? I have a cowl hood so I think it would fit under the hood the reason why I was wondering because they are alumium.

The truck PI intake is not much of an improvement over the npi truck intake. Their runners are even longer, to make better low end torque (towing/hauling) which in a car wouldn't do much good.

a car intake with a alum X-over is actually better, because the plastic doesn't absorb heat from the engine, keeping the air cooler. The alum. crossover is also good, I've never heard of a problem.

this would be a good intake for boost or nitrous though.

dont spray under 3500 rpms and you wont go boom, yes the buillit intake would be the best choice but they are extreamly pricey, so i guess this guys just trying to look for a cheap AL alternative intake

The truck intakes suck! your runners are waaaay long, so that the thing will make torque down low... problem is , the length works against the HP , due to pulse length of the charge, & harmonics... optimum length is 8-10 inches, or there abouts. the P-51 is a better choice, or the frpp piece for for PI engines...As for height I suspect that its almost as tall as my 5.4 manifold, so plan on cutting a hole or two in that 4" cowl, and glueing a xtra small cowl on top of it like I did...good luck
