Windstar Intake?

I've been looking to swap my Intake for the Windstar set up. Can't really find the actual kit. Can anybody help?

These guys?
VAP Auto - Windstar Kit

Or this?
Ford Windstar Intake | eBay

Forgive my ignorance...but that was an old crappy van, right? Is the intake from it a mod for the Mustang with a 3.8L

Yup. Its supposed to add about 7 hp. It also cleans up the engine bay a little. And I thought VAP didn't sell them any more?

Dang, $385 for the kit? Actually seems like a good deal. I would love to do this swap when it comes time for the tune up. Currently at 60k miles, just might have to buy then when it hits 75k and I do the plugs and wires.

Agreed. Looks much better than the stock intake as well.

Yes it was a minivan from the late 90's that used the same motor we have. The upper intake is superior than our heavy metal ones. I plan on doing the swap sometime in the next couple of months as well. Coupled with the 4.2 stroker, you have a pretty dang fast n/a v6 just ask someone with that setup. I think David is the only one on these forums with both.

And no that's not the intake. You need the upper intake

It just looks downright sexy! But sadly it looks like VAP will never get these kits back in stock. My friends dad owns and auto wrecking yard. I should check and see if they have a windstar down there and if he cuts me a deal maybe I can start making a kit now and install like a year from now or something.

Yeah I would buy one if it was reasonably priced. Doesn't seem like it would be to hard to make an entire aftermarket kit.

Here is a good cheap start:

I would buy it myself but I currently have 2000 ford ranger project that I am working on. Its turning into a dang money pit nightmare though and might just sell the darn thing. Paid like $500 for it and ran great, few days later its idling like crap. Can't figure out why.
