    GT40 Intake for

    So, I want to get an "old school" GT40 upper/lower intake for my Fox. Yes, I know there are modern intakes out there that make more power, for less money. Don't care. I love the look of the GT40 and I don't mind sacrificing a few hp.

    Anyway, they are pretty rare now, but they show up on Ebay occasionally for $500-600. I'll spend the money if I have to, but I'm hoping one of you might have a handle on one -- either your own or from someone you know.... I'm not looking to low-ball someone out of a part -- I'll pay a fair price. But, if you find me one for a significantly cheaper price than Ebay, I'll offer you a finders fee.....

    I saw almost a half dozen of these at Carlisle this year. You should go next year, Jim! It's THE place to pick up Fox parts for cheap money, IMHO. And have a great time while doing it!

    Ian thanks! If you hadn't posted that, I'd probably be looking for months! But because you posted that comment, I immediately found one.... LOL!
    Going to pick it up Saturday down near Worcester!

    Great Jim! That will look good on your car! Any thoughts of powder coating before you put it in?

    I'll have to see exactly what condition it's in. I saw one chromed with red in between the "fins", I'm not going to chrome mine, but I'm wondering if the dark blue metallic body color would look good instead, especially if I can get the aluminum to clean up nice.

    (Although the chrome does look damn nice...)

    those intakes are pretty, if it was me I'd have it powder coated silver or in a raw finish to show it off

    I'm not sure that I'd see any significant gains from porting the intake beyond what I'll get just from going from stock intake to GT40. From reading it sounds like you need to change the heads to get the full benefit of the ported GT40 setup.

    There was actually a tubular intake with the upper plaque for sale at the swap meet at Tasca day at New England Dragway. $400.00 for the upper intake and 200.00 for the plaque that goes on the upper. Both parts didn't sell
