being that it is a brand new product, it will probably take some time for any real world product reviews to come to light. however, i'm sure a magazine will install it and put it on a dyno to simply produce some numbers. i'm like you...i want to see some real world product reviews.

on paper, it's supposed to show some gains in the mid range and upper rpm range. it's a 100% aluminum intake and will be much more durable than the plastic oem's in regards to nitrous use.

edelbrock has always made good products. the victor jr. for the 5.0 is one of the best intakes in the business. their reputation alone suggests that this should be a good product.

however, i read that the current 4.6 aftermarket intakes make sacrifices on the bottom end for improvements on the top end. that has always made me a bit leery considering how inherently week the 4.6 2v is in the torque department. that would be beneficial at the track, but be detrimental for around town driving.

i agree about the topend peformance part.. and the thing about the victor jr with the 5.0s is the fact its a topend and hurts in the lowend and well now they have it for the 4.6 that hurts enough as is.. but hey we dont have much to choose from

From a racing stand point, the air gap is great for high horse power motors.
I played with several intakes, Edelbrock Proformer and RPM proformer are both good low end. I ran the torquer 2 intake and it gave me very good mid and top end. I did try the Stealth intake but lost ET and MPH. It's all about how much money you want to spend. For the money I would go with the Torquer 2 for over all performance.

I don't think it will be good for a street due to the RPM range. For track and high boost car may be. It's kind of like the Ricard Racing intake, I don't know if you re-call. The RR intake was good for Turbo and S/C at high RPM range. at low rpm, it's useless. The price's still good though.
