Default 4.0 SOHC Engine Plenum/Cover

Anyone know where to get the 4.0 Engine Plenum/Cover?

I know AM used to sell them, but they don't carry them anymore.

Thanks!

Don't know where to get them but I went with the Shaker scoop system and solved 2 problems.

That is very tempting... But I'm not a fan of a shaker on a V6, just doesn't seem right.

Pretty sure the only way to go nowadays is to make your own. Unless you find one used somewhere. Check out my thread when I made mine.

I tried to order it from there and they called me and told me that item was discontinued.

The only place I have found is this, http://www.uniqueautomotivedesigns.c...ENUMCVRS.shtml
Pretty pricey but I've been told the guy will paint almost anything you want on it, so if you wanted to spend that kind of money you could try that, he also sells a lot of other custom painted parts, just look at his product list

I don't know if you could get one unpainted from there or not, couldn't hurt to try and find out, as it's such an uncommon item

I've seen someone paint one and it didn't look very good, plus it looked like a pain to do

I didn't realize these were so rare to find...I've been poking around the net for some time, and wondering why there have always been only GT ones for sale...now I know why.

They just sit on top of the intake manifold.

Man I've been trying to find one now for about 2 years, haha. Someone really needs to start making them, the demand for cheap engine dress-up parts is definitely there.

I could have swore either in this thread or somewhere else around here someone posted a link to where some other brand was making them.

Finding a 4.0 Plenum is like a finding Big Foot these days. I'm in the AM forum now trying to get American Muscle to start making them again. At least in limited quantities as there is a LOT of buzz for these.
