I have been looking at this combo as well. i think it would be well worth it considering the price and the over pricing of their competitors. The Grenatelli plenum looks promising as well.

I read on another forum (not sure about the rules for posting the name) where a member did a big dyno shoot-out on all the plenums. I think the throttle body was the same on all of the tests. There where differences in gains, but they were all very close to one another. For the small amount of gains you get from plenum tb combo $200 would be about the max that I would be willing to pay. Just my opinion though.

I think you should go for it and report back. Fit, finish, performance, etc. Otherwise I will probably be doing it soon.

Not exacly sure if I am going to buy this right away.I've already dumped $1250+ on the car this summer in mods and tires for the rims I didn't need and the wife is putting a stop to my mod allowance.At least for the time being.I understand though.I have a tendancy to just keep spending money on the car when I don't need the parts I am buying.

But I think I am going to buy this part before race season is over just because it looks pretty.
Just need some feedback on it.

buy an n2o kit, bottle warmer, remote bottle opener and hide that sunnabisch really well and the wifey would have no clue you got more go-fast parts :D then when you take her to home depot on a saturday to get some flowers or something, flick the switch, mash the throttle and watch her face turn blue, oh and remember to keep a towel in the car for seat clean up purposes. and u might wanna wear a cup for whats coming when yous tep out of the car in the home depot parking lot :tongue:

sorry to hi jack. thats a great price for that set up. it hink you should get it and let the rest of us know if you wasted ur time and money. personally i think for future mods this would be a nice addition. if people plan to stay mostly stock, i dont really see the point of going that far up the air intake track. just my .02.

Why run away from them? There isn't much there for someone to mess up and it is very similar in design to others. How could it be so bad?

i have no first hand experience but seen it on other board that people took pics of internal casting and you got what you pay for.

Need more info than that.If you have no first hand experience than it is hard to take your word for it.Show me some proof.I can't see 2 mustang mags promoting this part if it is no good.

Your sarcasim is not needed in this thread.I asked you to show me why it is not a good deal and you made a sarcastic remark.(At least thats how I took it.)Show me why it would be a bad choice.

Ok I understand that cheap proformance products can be a total gimmick.But to have a product listed in a popular Mustang mag and then to have someone say that it is no good but not from personal experience makes no sence to me.

Anywhere can you show me that this product is a cheap knock off?

Well here's some first hand experience. Mine was good quality. Minor casting marks and smooth inside. I can't seem to find the pics I took of it but I'm gonna keep looking.

For the price you pay for the combo it's a great choice considering it's hard to touch Accufab's stuff for less than that.

And FWIW...my friend has a Mustang with a stock PI intake and the Professional Products plenum and TB combo and he's put down 512 whp...supercharged, mild cams, and stock heads.
