I have a 2002 3.8l v6 and I just bought the 98 ford windstar van upper intake and I'm wanting to install is but I'm wondering will it clear the fuel rails or am I'm going to need a intake spacer?

All the more reason to slap on a cowl hood.

It's not swapping for a split port as his motor already has one. It's just a freer flowing intake. Because it is freer flowing, it is taller so...yeah...hood clearance.

Contact Stephan at VAP Auto..if you send him the intake when you send your tb he will deduct the price of the intake. He did for me. If you buy the kit it is very easy and you get everything you need to do this upgrade.

Did u buy the kit or just the intake. If you got just the intake you have to play and figure what to do with some of the stuff.

I bought the intake from a guy I knew..then sent it to Stephan and then bought the kit. The kit makes for an easy install.
