The Power Pack also has a black intake manifold, also modified for the new airboxes. Any Vantage with normal airboxes (the ones without the extra flaps) should have a grey intake manifold, unless it was painted (non-original). So:

Grey intake manifold: standard manifold, standard airboxes, etc.
Black intake manifold: modified manifold, airboxes with extra flaps - either the V8VS or the Power Pack.


I understand that the black intake is the same as the grey with an extra air tap to open the flaps on the air boxes. Guess the flaps must be vacuum operated.


I have already ran a base dyno and I am doing the ECU and exhaust on right now.
