    Just got this Mustang today and the previous owner wasn't sure what intake this is. Anyone have any idea? I haven't researched it yet. This is where I started.

    Thanks in advance!

    Well, now we're kind of wondering again. It seems to be a tubular GT40, but the upper left of the plenum just doesn't match up to others that I (and others) find online. It has a 90 degree top, rather than the 45(ish) degree angle. (Where they put the 302 sticker.)

    You think it could be something custom? Or partially custom?

    I'd have to agree its a modified Tubular GT-40.
    What is under the cover is the mystery.... Possibly the plenum tank had a hole in it and someone made a cover for it ?????

    Looks like a homemade GT 40 style. This is a great upper but
    the GT-40 series have always shined, but seem to run out of breath about 5500 or so. So of your wanting power to contenue past that range I'd go to another intake system being what appears to be a homemade one who knows.

    It is a knock off gt40 intake definitly not an originall I have seen it before but
    that doesn;t mean it won't perform well.
