After undoing the coil packs, fuel line, and unbolting the manifold, it lifted right off the engine.
Comparing the stock Gen-1 intake manifold (left) to the new 2018+ Gen-3 manifold (right), there’s not much difference at first glance. Upon closer look, the runners of the new 2018 are thicker and taller than the Gen-1.
From the rear, the difference in shape of the runners are a little more obvious
The Gen-1 and Gen-2 intake manifolds (RED) are very similar in design. We can see the big difference of the 2018+ Gen-3 (BLUE) having taller runners that are shorter overall, due to the raised plenum deep in the “V” of the engine.
From underneath, we can see the shorter and slightly smaller plenum volume of the 2018+ Gen-3 (right).
The 2018+ manifold (right) bolts right up to all Coyote generations. The runner port is slightly larger than the Gen-1 (left).
