Another split port question

So I've read a bunch of threads on multiple sites and have yet to find the answer to my question. So the 99-04 has split port, 94-98 has single,we all know this. The windstar minivan also has split port heads. Since mustangs are stripped down at my local junkyards and heads off eBay are ridiculously priced, can I use the split port heads off of a windstar? If not, why?

You can use 96-03 Windstar heads.
You can not use the 96-98 lower intake off of a Windstar. They have IRMCs that are electronically control.

That's what I have been searching for. I thought one year or mustangs had the IRMC. Can I use everything else though? Like fuel rail?

I am not a 100% sure. The 96 Mustang and the 96-98 Windstar have return fuel lines. The 99-04 Mustangs do not. But they do have a electronic fuel pressure sensor. The 96-98 Windstars have a vacuum fuel pressure sensor. In theory it should work, but I do not know any one who has done it.
The fuel rail matches up to the intake 100%.

Well just knowing the heads will work is good enough for now. 40+ horses sounds real nice right now.

The upper intake on the 96-98 Windstar is hard to fit under the factory hood. I basically know how to do it. You have to make metal plates and weld pipe to them. Cut out the hole in between the metal and the pipe to make the iac. Everything depends on you level of mechanic ability. The 99-04 Mustang upper intake is easier.
The Windstar upper would give you 50 more hp and 30 more tq.
Edit: 96 Mustang has 215 tq. I think +25 tq.
I do not know if the 96 Mustang fuel line PUSH-LOK connectors will connect to the 98 Windstar. You should test before buying.

Yeah. I'm not a 100% on fuel rails but I'll take my mechanically inclined friend and see what he thinks. I know a custom hybrid rail has to be made using the split port one and the single port.

You should be able to use a threaded collar connections that screw on. You would need a shop who does things like fixing hydraulic hoses. I think some NAPAS have the machine.

My friends dad owns a shop that can do pretty much anything. How much do heads cost at a junk yard? 125?

At my pull apart junk yard they are $30 a head. If you do not go to a pull apart they will be a lot more. At Autozone they are $260+a 60 core.
You will need the rockers and push rods. These will need to be marked up, down, cylender1,2,3,4,5, and 6
