I don't see why it wouldn't work. Your speedo will be off by a little though unless you recalibrate your settings for the different size tire with a tuner.

It is taller by 5 first number 245 is the width of the tire second number is the hight of the tire from rim to tread the the letter is the tire rating usually meaning how fast of speed it's rated to go last number is rim size

I know it would be a thinner profile tire but do you guys think it would look funny with a thinner tire at stock height?

It will appear as though your car is raised up a little. It will create a bit more fender gap.

It's a process called hydrographicing or water dipping usually ull spray the part a base color mine was color matched to my car then then u get the film that you want has alll kinds camo, flames, skulls all kinds mine was clear carbon fiber placed the film in the water tank sprayed the activator over it and when it was ready dipped at a roll through the film then clear coated it at the end to make it shine like that

It's a upper intake you can get for our 3.8 or 4.2 since basically same motor .. Instead of the cast aluminum one on then stock drawing in air from the side this is a tough plastic that draws it in from the front gives it 7 more hp an up to 15 tq they sell a kit on VAP I got mine out of a 97 ford windstar from a salvage yard only thing I had to fab my own parts when the kit comes with them

And it ain't hard they actually sale a DIY kit online mine was done in a 8x4 foot tank tho

the throttle body is the part of the air intake system that controls the amount of air flowing into the engine bigger the opening the more air sucked in
