The factory 5.0L truck intake is pretty decent as it is. What exactly are your plans for the rest of the engine?

You're wasting your money here, the stock truck intake flows at least as much as the Edelbrock and the existing throttlebodies also flow enough to support about 400hp, so unless your motor is heavily modified this change won't accomplish anything.

Im with the others , unless your building up your motor , the stock intake is fine , i use the eddey truck intake and its good , but won't help much with stock heads and cam , so if you don't allready have that then spend the money on exhaust , cam , heads , gears , then if you get to the point you need more air , it will help alot to open up the intake....

I'm also going to say stick with the truck 5.0 intake.

I agree with what he said. I too was tempted to buy the Edelbrock manifold too, until a realized there wasn't much gain in just adding it. There are other ways to wisely spend your money. I suggest getting the E-fans if you haven't already. That will be my purchase after I'm done with the interior project I'm currently working on.
