    Default Willpower VS Wildcat intakes.

    Has anyone been able to tell if the Willpower intake from Australia and the Wildcat Intake from England are the same intake or not?

    That was a good question. I guess there is no takers… I don't know. Sorry bro. BTW why ask?

    What did it cost you to ship your intake from AU?

    Up until a year ago, I knew for a fact they were the same. But... now I'm hearing that Wildcat casts their own large port manifolds. I've never seen one. You'd be best served to contact them.

    From what I have been able to see from pictures they are the same. Wildcat also has a larger spread port version for their stage II heads.

    It cost me about $74 if I remember right. I finally freed up my engine stand to finish the assembly! SWEET! I should have it all together within the month. The block is still at Wagamon getting the sleeves pressed in. I wonder what's taking so long. Hmmm. I'll have to call them.

    Just lost out on a Huffaker Intake on the UK Ebay..

    Huffaker intake auction link

    I just cant fathom paying $400 plus shipping for a used intake with no thermostat housing and god knows what kind of home porting modifications have been done to it.
