I have a boost leak at the left intake plenum and was considering the riffraff aluminum plenums but not paying attention well enough i thought $299 for the pair when its each. The price now kinda makes me think twice about installing them and instead just resealing the originals. I would like opinions on this. Are the aluminum ones any advantage?

IMHO For the average guy, the plenum inserts are a good option with the factory plenums. The aluminum ones are pretty, but like you say pricey

I am just the average guy and would rather put that money into a turbo or injector upgrade. reliability is key as we pull a small camper and we don't just hit the local lake.

Unless it has changed it is for the pair. Where did you get that it was each?

if you read the wordings and reviews it appears its for a pair of them not just one side etc. You could always call though.

I c that now, i think i was looking at the amount counter where it says 1 but bellow that it does say a pair. Well damn,and i have a tube of the motorcraft sealer on way. I would rather have that viton o'ring than silicone. Thanx for pointing that out, i'll probably go ahead a go that route.

as been said, resealing factories and getting the inserts is the budget friendly option.

I like the aluminum ones as they seal with the o-ring however the supplied bolts are cheap and rust easily. I bought the first gen when they first came out and were considerably cheaper IIRC. For my current project I opted to try the Irate plenums (not installed yet)

if you ever run the CNCfab lines with these plenums; there will be fitment issues. different fittings or removal of the plenums will be necessary. Some notch out the plenums. I opted to use different fittings. as i was not going to take things apart to get the fittings in.
