Learn how to replace an intake manifold and intake manifold gaskets in your car or truck. I am upgrading my intake manifold from a non PI intake to a PI performance intake which will hopefully add some Horsepower and Torque! I also show you how to install a water pump, and how to tap the intake port for a coolant temperature sensor.
Performance Intake:
Extendable Ratchet:
Torque Wrench:
3/8's Tap and 37/64" Drill Bit set:
Center Punch:
Heater Tube and Fitting:
Intake Manifold Gasket:
No Spill Coolant Funnel:

  • I really admire the work you put in all the videos. I check for your new videos almost daily and always wonder what takes you so long. Everytime I see the new video I'm like "okay, this was worth waiting". The work you have to put in repairing the car and in addition to that, the work you have to put in moving and placing the camera so every bolt you touch is visible for the viewer and finally editing the video the way you do it (every transition, every splitscreen, all the bolts to mark and these things you do with graphs) must take hours and hours. I really appreciate it and hope that you'll keep doing such a great videos. Even though I don't even have a car, I always enjoy your videos, so one day I buy myself a car, i can do it at home just because of you. Thank you!

  • To be honest, peak horsepower on its own is a illogical way to determine how much overall horsepower a car has, because you can produce 1000hp (peak) but only for a very short period of time where a car that has under 600hp can have a much more consistent torque curve which can make the car more powerful overall.

  • This manifold swap has been a nightmare. After managing all the tools, parts and sources for drilling everything. I get it all buttoned up looks great. after a 20 miles down the road, My upper radiator hose has too much pressure and I find my heads are bad. Some advice for others, CHECK YOUR HEADS FIRST before you put any money in it then decide if this is a job you want to do. I would of defiantly ditched my stang and bought a different car. The amount of money I put in my 98 I could of just bought a 04 mustang.
