Well you should be able to reuse everything you've already got, aside from making a new hose.

Re: Windstar upper intake conversion

I would just buy the kit. VAP Auto - Windstar Kit

He sells the individual parts needed also like the TB spacer.

Re: Windstar upper intake conversion

zebs my boy! you can buy the windstar upper intake from a junky...thats about it. you have to have everything else in the kit in order for it to fit, since that **** sits so high.

just try to get the intake as cheap as possible and send your old TB in for some cash back

He made a spacer that lowers the whole setup so it clears a stock hood now...before there were issues with the stock hood though.

According to that link somebody with a supercharged 2003 with 10psi procharged gained 10 RWHP & 26 Ft/lbs which is nice. I like the look of it, however it comes really close to that radiator hose/EGR valve & right over the A/C compressor/belt. Still a good price, but there are some things to consider first before doing this mod like if you port and polish your intake would you get similar results? Probably.....

Re: Windstar upper intake conversion

Hmmmmmmmmmmmm heard bout this windstar intake swap in passing, never really thought anything about it. So, whats the excitement about? Whats the perk of swapping your OE intake for a windstar intake? As well as.....when I take my motor apart to put stronger internals in, I plan on doing a basic p&p on both my upper and lower intake.....what kind of power gains am I to expect if any?
