Dragpac Intake Manifold w/ Nitrous

I'm going to be testing a dragpac intake on my truck, and the Nitrous Outlet stinger plate system with Race solenoids and mounting bracket showed up yesterday. Also got in a nice billet bottle bracket as well.

what did that manifold run you and do you think it would help my rig ? Mods below. Will there be a lot of fab work and adaptation involved ?

I had a 100 shot in on the 11.5 pass. I've since tweaked the suspension and switched to true slicks, so I think it will stick a 150 now. I'll probably run it again on the stock intake first before trying the dragpac, but I'm guessing I will start at a 150 shot, and then take it to 200 if I'm a little short of the 10.99 goal.

This intake is not ideal unless you are boosted or running nitrous, have a 3400+ stall tq converter, 4.10-4.56 gears, and shift close to 7000rpms. Anything less than that would probably perform worse with this intake.

Ran good on my turbo 392 with the lean running 390 tune. Never got a running tune to fully test it out. That will be a different story on my 05...

I figured as much. No mine isn't badass enough to take advantage of that

From a local speed shop. I'm going to have to shave down the bottom of the cap a bit because it just barely touches the intake runner, and I'm going to drill and tap it to add a breather filter as well.
