Do you need a tune if you get a new upper and lower intake? Or do you only need it tuned if you swap out the cams?

Matt, there are a number of things play a factor in whether you need a tune or not. In most cases though, you will not see much of a gain unless you do a head and cam swap.

Well, Im debating on buying this 91 Bronco with a 302. After doing some research though, it looks like only Edelbrock makes a truck specific manifold. I was hoping I could just throw stang stuff on there, but that would make me lose torque.

Anyone have an idea on a h/c/i pakage that I could throw on it? It's lifted 6" on 35s with 4.56 gears so Im sure it could use a little extra hp.

its still a GT-40 intake. Basically what you have is a 94-95 cobra intake. The lowers are the same (flow wise) as the 93 cobra and lightning intakes but the upper is more restricted than the other GT-40 uppers
