Default Professional Products typhoon intake manifold

Have you guys heard any feed back on this one? Good or bad? I think it's like a bootleg version of the edelbrock RPM.

I have one. Not bad for the money. The casting could be a little better and I had to slightly modify my fuel rail for it to fit. Other than that, I like it.

I read somewhere that you had to match the gasket to the intake. I guess you gotta grind the intake down a bit to get an exact fit. Is that what you meant about the casting?

No, just it's rough around the edges. I didn't do any grinding on it. You can port match it though. If you wanna spend the time doing it. I was in too big of a hurry!!! LOL

you wanna make some serious power go and have the lower ported and gasket matched to the heads. The runners are kinda rough, but good intake for the money in my opinion. Im perfectly happy with mine, i just wish i had a satin finish, i dont care to much for the polished version. So i just scotch padded the whole thing till it was a dull finish, now i like it.

Great intake, knock off of the RPM. I've heard the same things about having to port match and smooth out the casting flash in the runners....

you get what you pay for.

my number 5 and 6 runners needed about a quarter inch taken off the inside of the ports on the upper intake side, not the head side.
it took a couple of hours to port it, but overall I should have just bought the edelbrock one, or the trickflow.
after a year my side cover is leaking oil and a slight vacuum leak.

had to use helicoils for all the lower bolt holes.
they stripped easy at only 24 ft/lbs.

Wow sorry about that, I assume you mean the holes in the lower part for the bolts to the upper part. Did the instructions say to torque to 24ft/lbs? I would have assumed 16 to 18 as the max for that size bolts in Aluminum.

I thought it was an okay intake for the money but I like the Trick Flow better.

Wow, I think they missed it on that one. My shop manual says 19 to 25 for factory but I like you found some will pull out before 25. I pull my lower intake bolts to 20ft-lbs and the upper ones to 18ft-lbs, so far no leaks even with 15#s of boost.

also, nice looking 4 eye.

thanks, as for pulling threads out, there is no reason to that they would other than cheap metal. The fact that the ports are up to a 1/4 inch off shows that they just ripped off a design and did little to check how far that they were off.

I hear ya twister. I guess I should give it some more thought and then make my decision. Any one else had a problem with this intake, or w/ professional products all together?
