Is this possible? My Mk3 has a stock 1990 302, I would like to retain the factory ECM and injectors, but replace the ugly upper intake and maybe the lower also. I really dont want to use an aftermarket EFI intake as they also have the same look. How about a lower intake that has injector bungs, but what about the factory throttle body and mass air flow sensor? I know there are standalone aftermarket EFI kits like Mass Flow. But what other options do I have? Could my idea work? I think I need sleep.
The box intakes are not so hot on a 302 (even boosted). They lose a lot of the low end torque that the long runners provide and ultimately don't add enough HP to be worth it. On a 347 it is a different story.
I have the Mass-Flo setup. The manifold is an Edelbrock Victor Jr. with injector bungs welded in. I have seen folks that have done their own version. You could get a 4 barrel throttle body from Edelbrock and should be able to use your stock sensors, injector and ECU. I think you can get an mass air meter that would fit under the air cleaner and it would look like a carb setup.

My two favorites are the previously mentioned Stacks from Wayne and if the car has a lot of motor check out the sheetmetal intakes from Wilson manifolds . Now from a driveability standpoint I absolutely love the GT40 on my 93 Lightning both with the stock engine and even better with z head 392.. Enjoy the confusion Bob
