Yah I think it will. VAP Auto (who makes the windstar kits) sells a windstar t/b spacer that lowers the intake tube eliminating hood clearance issues.

Re: windstar upper intake + stock hood?

yea it will fit, the only difference is where the intake tube goes. on your stock unit it comes from the side, the windstar comes from the front, everything is the same.

you do not need the tb spacer from vap(nothing against kit), but just get a 90 degree silicone connector hose, $10 at ebay, 15 at auto parts store. hose flexes so hood closes. problem solved...

Curious question here:
If the hose flexes when the hood is closed, doesn't that mean it would impede air flow? I'm guessing you would lose some of the diameter of the hose no? Or I could just be thinking on the completely wrong side of the fence here

Re: windstar upper intake + stock hood?

not really a fan of the entire VAP kit itself. too expensive. i just only interested in the upper intake. will that fit with my parts i have without having to buy anything but a 90 degree hose?

Should only need the tb spacer & modify your throttle cable bracket to mount on the windstar intake.

45 for the t/b spacer from vap or 15 for a silicone hose. (again nothing against vap kit, i'm just a DIY and discovered 90hose is easier and cheaper)

Re: windstar upper intake + stock hood?
