I'm sure Lem and Charlie will be glad to answer more emails and such about a product that has yet to be produced, I know I would be thrilled to death..........

There is no production date that Charlie or I are aware of...there will be a guy from tfs at the tech deal this weekend...if there is news we will pass it along .
The manifold is a CJ/SCJ/4500 unit . Price is unknown at this point .

No expected release date yet on that particular TFS manifold. Hard to test if one isn't available. Cool

on his website the ported Victor is a FRPP casting. It looks like he takes one off the shelf and ports it.

both are FRPP - or rather Ford Motorsports intakes.

If you notice they are both $319 but the first link says "Full Portwork - Add $450.00 Each"


I take this as he will port your $319 intake for an additonal $450 not that he has a special casting ported "as cast" for $769

I may be wrong though.

I have seen two of Kasse's ported intakes and seen both on the dyno. It is about what Charlie and I do to the Victor. The TFS manifold has some design features that the Victor doesn't in the runners. Charlie enhanced and improved those features. Plus starting with a true 4150 plenum design it gave him more to work with making it into a good efficient 4500 plenum.

I feel the Victor will have to have a TOTAL redesign to meet or beat the TFS.

Thank you Blake! Cool Now then,,,, if everybody will please take a chill pill and relax and wait until they get the intake manifold made, we be all good. Very Happy As Lem said, TFS is bringing the prtotype/model manifold to the Winter Tech Seminar, and as we learn more, we'll post more.

Thanks,
Charlie

If there happens to be a distraction during the seminar and the intake comes up missing, I just want to let everyone know now that I had NOTHING TO DO with it.... Evil or Very Mad

This might have been answered already.

What size engine / cylinder heads would be too small for this intake?


PS. I am wondering if I should wait for this intake to become available before I purchase a 4500 intake for my 528?

Josh ,

The cross sectional area hasn't changed that much, I would venture to say it will work anywhere a victor or the original track heat intake would work. It is just more efficient at moving air now.

I know it's been asked before, but I figure I'll smack this horse a little. Is this, possibly, going to be a $450 plus intake. I'm just saying Lems deal on Victors is going to be hard to pass up on if the new intake is going to be pretty pricey.

I doubt it will be cheaper than there old one and it's higher than the Victor. But it makes more power. Just depends on you as to what you need.

A bare Victor is relatively inexpensive as far as intakes go, but it takes a lot of time or money to properly set one up to be competitive with what this new intake is capable of, so one must take that into account. Cool

Victor 4500

Post  Mark Laczo on Tue 12 Jan - 18:26

A Victor 4500 may be only around $300 but if you pay to get it fully ported you can add another $250-$300 on top. So you now have $600 invested, so depending on what the new intake costs, it will most likely be a much better deal for the people or engines that can or want to use it.

Lem when can I get on the list for one of these if you have even started a list yet bounce LOL.
