Windstar Intake

So, I know this topic is old... But I'm considering doing it over the summer. I just have a few questions.
1. Is it worth it? I've heard do to the changes in intake runner lengths, it really improve power.

2. How hard is it to do myself? If i can't do it myself, its to cost restrictive. (btw, I have an 04 v6)

3. Anybody out there that has experienced the difference? You can look at dyno sheets all day and tell me it's great or terrible, but I want a real opinion.

And 4. Does it require a tune? From what I've read, it's not necessary, but it helps a lot and gives you over 8-10hp more on top of the other gains.

But it is pretty, and I might just do it for $375.

Oh, and I'm only considering the vapauto kit right now since its the only complete kit that clears the hood.

Yeah it looks nicer and gets more mpg and power but I don't wanna spend that much the intake is only like 50 dollars but I don't wanna deal with the work so I might just get the kit

They have a great kit with a modified tb, special spacer to clear the hood, intake tube, all the hoses, and all the gaskets. Great kit for $375 and it gives good gains, even better with a tune

Not necessarily, their dyno graph shows a run with no tune showing gains. So I'm assuming not.

Just got a reply from Steven at VAP, said no tune is necessary! Planning on this by the end of the summer if I can save the right amount of money

"Hello Alec,

There is no need to tune your car after the install. Although a tuner is a great mod and has excellent gains on its own.

Thanks,
Steven "

People do it all the time, but it doesn't have a stock look and just looks like it was done poorly. The kit has everything you need and it looks damn clean

Stephan is a class act. Would recommend his kit to any V6 owner.

Well, it would have to be converted to splitport. Although the 2 changes together would be great!

Re: Windstar Intake

Thanks. That's what I thought. One more thing for the wish list.
