G10 intake spacer is the hardest to find. If you cut a 1/2 metal plate it will be just as good.
What do you mean exactly by relocation bracket?

David should be able to hook you up with some of the parts. I can not speak on his behalf. But I would write him.
The Windstar van has a different fuel injector rail and fuel pressure sensor. So 1/2" of height needs to be added with a intake spacer.
Unless you can plastic weld you will need a throttle body spacer.
Throttle cable extender
The coil pack mount and throttle cable mount should be easy as cutting metal, drill holes, and bend with a pair of plyers.
The cai can be fabricated at a muffler shop with a pype bender. I can elaborate in-depth on this is just a beginner introduction to let you know what to do.

You only have to bend the fuel rail a bit..

The Monster is kicking in! Just remembered where I saw a write up at. Check this link out n come back.
Windstar Intake Swap Questions? Look Here - Ford Mustang Forums
Did not know about the fuel rail bend. Read about the swap in 2006.
The easiest way to do the throttle cable is. Build the throttle cable mount. Cut a extra throttle cable a few feet from the end. Crimp the two throttle cables together and put some JB Weld between the 2 for extra protection.

Here's the cable bracket, it's just attached to the VAP coil bracket I had previously. No need to modify throttle cable if you're making your own brackets, you can make them to fit right.

(Note: the second picture is not mine, it's a friends)

I just found a pic off the internet. The iac is relocated with 2 pieces of metal. Both are the same size and fit on the back of the iac and one where the iac mounts. The metal has 2 small 1/2 pipes that are welded on the left and right side that connect with vacuum hose.
Wait, you wield 1/4 pipe 1/2" long and drill a hole. Probably easier to buy vaps parts unless you have practice welding.
