Early 99 intake plenums

While I have the heads off, I am thinking about replacing the early 99 intake plenums with later model 3" ones. At this time, I don't want to replace the spider or any other plumbing. Question is this: Do the inlets fall in the same location on both, so that all I would have to find is a 2 3/8" to 3" reducing boot to connect the early 99 intake spider to the 99.5 intake manifolds, or is there more to it than that? Also, will the early 99 turbo clear the 99.5 intake plenums? I have heard that OBS guys had to do some BFH massaging of the intake plenum at the turbo to get it to clear.

Ya, but the truck is up by the airport and the motor is on an engine stand right along side it.

Re: Early 99 intake plenums

Wooner, the stock number t-2383 boot is a true 2 3/8" to 3" , works perfectly.

turbohoses.com

The 3" SD intake doesn't have to have any "tweaking" to get it to clear the turbo....

And that is the case with the 3" intakes with the early 99 turbo (Bean's D66)?

Re: Early 99 intake plenums

They will probably clear... the early 99 pedistle is way higher than the OBS ones so i would think it should clear pretty easily.. im not 100&#37; but even if it did take a little massaging to get it in there it wouldnt be much

Re: Early 99 intake plenums

It took only a little flattening on a rear corner on my 97. Not a big deal. And as I recall, it was more to clear the fuel line fitting thats not there anymore.
