We saw this bad boy at the 2016 SEMA show, but wanted to give this new intake its own 15 minutes of fame here on Mustang-360.com! Edelbrock now has a new intake manifold for the 2011-16 Ford 5.0L Coyote V-8 engine. The intake is designed to fit under the stock hood of the 2011-2016 Mustang GT, and that includes the OE strut tower brace as well!

The Edelbrock Victor II intake manifold (#7180) is designed for use with Ford Coyote engines running in the 1,500-7,500 rpm range. It features long tapered, crossover-style runners with a large plenum for outstanding performance. The cast aluminum construction makes this manifold ideal for nitrous, supercharged and turbo applications. No longer do you have to worry about expanding or splitting plastic intakes or boost leaks at the flanges. It’s also compatible with Ford Performance Racing Parts’ popular 90mm throttle body without the need for an adapter like the Boss intake requires.

This intake manifold also includes provisions for all factory emissions equipment/hose connections and retains the ability to utilize the stock fuel rail, keeping your swap costs down. The Victor II also features cast in bosses on the runners for a direct port nitrous system for competition applications. Engine dyno testing resulted in 27 additional lb-ft of torque over a common plastic aftermarket intake manifold and an additional 16 horsepower over the stock intake manifold.

Features Include:
-Designed for use with factory Ford Coyote 5.0L engines with stock style cylinder heads
-Features long tapered, crossover-style runners with a large plenum for outstanding performance
-The Victor II made 27 lb-ft of torque over a common plastic aftermarket intake manifold and 16 more horsepower over the stock manifold
-Designed, cast and machined in the USA for unsurpassed quality and performance
