They'll work with the maggie, I believe. I had the MPI CAI on with the maggie, can't imagine the LPE piece wouldn't work :hmm:

The MPI piece made the maggie whine 2 or 3 times louder (stock exhaust in place at the time).

LPE will work with a Maggie.

And I'm surprised no one has asked yet...just doing a little R&D. :sneaky:

OK, stupid question....how does MORE get a 20hp gain and lingenfelter get 10....Looks like the same box....filter looks slightly different and the tubing from More looks straight while Lingenfelter is the stock....Can there really be twice the performance?

CVP33

Lingenfelter is honest?

Parker

All i know is that my Lingenfelter works better than my Speed Inc. intake.

I am just ordering a K&N filter from the Lingenfelter kit to replace my More Performance K&N filter which was destroyed due to the horrible installation methods (i.e. sheet metal on plastic tubing!). Not exactly a Lingenfelter kit, but almost.

Make sure to add some split loom to that More Performance sheet metal to keep that filter intact!

When one does a back to back dyno test between stock and aftermarket filter setups; the first pull after installation of a K&N style setup (including the FFV) will show over 20 hp gain. After some additional engine run time, the PCM adjusts for the extra airflow and the WOT power gains are more conservative.

Yeah... what he said.

Whats the normal price for these???

I just bought my V 3 days ago. Is it too early to mod??? :D

Is this intake superior to the others out there, or at least equal??

LV_V

I would go with either the Lingenfelter or StealthV; between these its a matter of personal preference. If you like the "open filter look" of the Lingenfelter, this deal is great right now. If you like the sharp look of the aluminum tube and the use of the stock airbox (with the addition of a high flow filter obviously), then go with the StealthV CAI.

BTW - After bad experiences with the More Performance CAI, I would stay away from it.

Yea Rick ....I was going to ask.....R&D you say?????? :hmm:

Just a little research into the only competition. Is it better? Same? Worse? Pros? Cons? Has anyone done this comparison yet? I'm going to find out for myself.

Well what is the deal with the StealthV intake? Is this product ready for sale now?

StealthV
06-14-05, 01:17 PM
FFV's have been for sale for a long time - It's a supply and demand issue; can't keep them in stock. There will be another batch ready soon but most of them are already spoken for so hence the endless cycle.

Do you have them in stock at 21st Century in the DFW area? If so, I'm thinking of a road trip cos I wanna see the facility. I want a cam and some tuning, what a better chance to take a look and pick up a nice part?

So Vin, you have the fastest year SHO, huh? Would I know you from the SHO community? Any conventions? Are you on SHOforum?

Its a Spit loom, so when you are in one of your cocky moods, you can fill ya cheek with some of that old timer chunk & chew bacca, and spit out the window into your spit loom.. hahaha!
Could ya see that? That would be worth paying for to see that pic of bigjimsho.. rofl

If you have never taken your filter off to clean it with your More Performance CAI then you wouldn't know why and/or where you would need split loom. The sheet metal opening for the plastic intake tube will cut through the plastic tube over time. Split loom, by the way, is plastic "tubing" that has a slit on one side and is made for protecting wires which are run insie them. Using split loom to line the inside of the sheet metal opening is one simple and very cheap fix to the More Performance CAI. It would be much easier to explain using pictures, but unfortunately I can't take pictures of my V right now. For one thing its in the shop, and my camera is also not working at the moment.

Thanks LV_V,

I understand exactly, what you are saying. I will check the installation next time I go out to my car. I have not had it on that long, so hopefully I can protect the tube before it is damaged.

Are there any other issues that I should be aware of? I have seen some mention of a "whistling: sound...but I have not had any of that...whatsoever.

Hey "The Big Jim SHO"

Is 1992 the fasted year SHO? I lurked on the SHOforum a little and I bought my SHO 5sp in 1994 with 29k miles. It now has 160k miles, and I take it to the Ford Performance Specialists of Georgia (outside Atlanta). Car is basically stock, except I tossed the CATS, opened the airbox, installed the Pro M MAF, cat back and chassis stiffining kit.

I was about to get the gearbox rebuilt with a quaife diff (got one in the Porsche 930-V8)...but wife said...stop spending money on a car that is worth less than the parts. She does not understand why I still like driving the SHO more than here Lexus LS400.

The V is my replacement/upgrade from the SHO. Not as much performance as the 2800 lbs Porsche with a 435hp SBC, but it is much more comfortable and still fun to drive.

BTW VinCLT = V in Charlotte (CLT is the airport code for Charlotte).

thebigjimsho
06-15-05, 01:25 PM
Yeah, like the Bozos here who think Platinum Vs are fastest, the saying on the SHOforum is '92 OWNZ j00.As for the Quaife, if I could do everything over, that would be the FIRST thing I'd install.
BTW, how is Doug over at FPS? I haven't seen him since the '99 Convention in Hotlanta. I will be in Indy next month, too. Maybe I'll see him there.
