Default 4.6 Typhoon intake......worth it?

Anyone have any info on this intake. My '99 GT stock lower intake has the usual problem of cracking. Looking at something a bit stronger and, of course, always looking for a few more horses. Anyone have this, good? bad?

They are better than plastic. And not that expensive. I have one.

You won't have to worry about cracking it, but if you're not s/c you won't see a huge difference. I believe there was an article in Fast Fords a few months back that showed how it didn't produce that much on a n/a engine. If you plan on going the s/c route later on, or maybe upgrading your heads and cams then it's a good by. If not, just replace it with a PI
