Yea I'd say it's worth it. Mods that add horsepower usually make your engine run better. Mine has 186000 on it and I'm continuing to mod. Next on my list are windstar tuner and gears

I found a kit on eBay that has the upper, lower, and center manifold kit. Is that what I need??

Get the vap kit it only takes like two hours to install and if things break steven from vap will help you out and he is still improving little odds and ends with the kit you won't regret it

No but you don't need a tune but it will have more power with a tune. Bama won't do a tune for it.

There a way to get it tuned if I have a sct tuner? Or would I have to get a different tuner in order to tune the ratio

A tuner is just the device to plug into the car and holds tune. The tune is what the computer reads. Vmp I heard makes tunes for Windstar mustang

Re: Help with windstar intake for my 99v6

It's not that BAMA "WON'T" tune for a Windstar Upper intake... it's that they told me that IT DOESN'T require or benefit from a specific tune. A technician named Rick told me that they have had several Windstar conversions across their dyno's and there is nothing to write for.

Windstar intakes don't actually CHANGE the air/fuel ratio. All it does to cause HP/TQ gains is change the path that the air takes, change the temperature of the air charge entering the combustion chamber due to the use of plastic rather than aluminum. The other significant difference that causes gains in performance is the length of the runners... The long ones are longer and the short ones are shorter.

None of these differences do anything to change the air/fuel ratio.

Re: Help with windstar intake for my 99v6

The kit that Steven sells (VAP Auto) is all inclusive. You get every nut, bolt, screw, gasket, vacuum like fitting, bracket, gasket, wire, wire tie, etc needed to complete this installation. I strongly recommend doing an EGR delete when you install this for a few reasons...

1) the included "high temperature silicone hose" that you get will get hot, hard and brittle. It will crumble away to dust within a few hundred miles. You can use copper tubing and plumbing fittings to solidly connect it like I did, but that was a lot of work. I wish I had just done a delete.

2) If you delete your EGR there will be a little more room for other crap and it won't be so crowded in the front of your intake. This makes it easier to install everything else.

I was thinking about doing an egr delete anyway, longtube headers are cheaper without the egr lol
