I have a built car in Florida .

I have an full built all motor car in Florida. It's a zetec the makes 174whp 157ftlbs to the wheel. What intake manifold do you have for me? The car has a 2000 port and polished manifold on the motor now.

Our Race IM would probably work great for you.

First of all, you are the one who misstated having a fully built engine, Rudel was trying to figure out why you have a stock bottom end on a built engine. To clarify, a fully built engine is one that has been built stronger in every aspect... things like forged pistons and rods, billet mains caps, ARP hardware throughout, new bearings, high lift valve springs... I'm guessing you have none of those? That's what we refer to as "fully built."

I think you mean you have a full bolt-on focus... intake, header, exhaust, things like that. If you have aftermarket cam's, then this intake manifold would definately work for you, since your power is up high in the RPM range anyway, and the bone stock IM runs out of breath around 6500 rpm, but probably not until a little higher, since you said yours is "ported and polished." If you don't plan on running past 7200 rpm's, you don't need the billet gears.

So you have a built top end. I haven't heard of cat cams, was that an abbreviation? What's the lift and duration?

You will likely lose low end power with a race manifold, but pass 5k rpms and you will see serious gains. The stock intake manifold has nice long runners, which are ideal for the best low end torque.
