GT40 Intake

Hi,

I was just wondering about a GT40 intake on an EF2 XR6. Will the engine need to be modified to take it ? Will it increase performance and finally does anyone know around how much they cost ?

Thanks for any help.

What part of the GT40 V8 intake are you thinking of fitting to your I6 engine? Obviously the intake manifold would never fit! :-P

It would after bigger maf, throttle body.In that order imo.The m.a.f or air-meters are only about 55mm so a bigger inlet won't help till you do the whole induction...

I'd recommend not attempting to modify your motor - it would be far easier to get a 2nd hand V8 and put in - then if you want to do the mods you mentioned it'll be quite a bit easier on the V8.
