Worth changing the stock intake at all?

    Vortech 15psi, 2V 4.6, cams, pulls to 6,200 RPM right now, ~ 525 whp

    There is an aftermarket TB/plenum on the stock PI intake

    Would it be worth switching over to the Trick Flow Street Burner, Bullitt, or other intake (what else is even out there)?

    Let me re-phrase that a little bit, at what price would it be worth it? Find a used intake for $400, make another 25hp...that would make it worth it to me I guess.

    Really looking for before/after experience from someone who's actually done it. I don't trust the old magazine reviews, and all I hear is "you should/would/could gain xx hp"

    Not worth the money especially on a street car. The low end torque loss isn't worth the little hp gained up top. Think about there you spend most of your time driving.

    If you want to add some power run E85 and get a retune and spin the vortech a little harder.

    The cool factor of adding a bullitt intake manifold. I don't see a loss in TQ going with that option. Youll gain some power. Will it be enough for the cost. Just depends what you can get one for. I have no personal experience.

    The bullitt is I believe the only exception but good luck finding one complete at a decent price these days. I don't think the hp per dollar is worth it.

    I love the bullit idea. Great manifold and looks great! If you find one in your price range then grab it
