Assuming you are stock, something like a BBK 65mm

+1
And, no bigger than 70 MM unless you are going with forced induction in the near future.

Not sure, look it up and see what's required.
It may or may not need a spacer.
Also, you want your air intake to be shaped like a funnel for the best air delivery, so your MAF should be larger than your TB or you may end up with a "dead air" spot in your air intake.
Dead air meaning slowed or disrupted air flow.

Nothing cuz it will bolt right on. On a stock motor a 70mm is overkill which is going to result in some loss of throttle response, but not a ton. If toucan get a good deal on it, go ahead and get it. You will also have some room to grow with it down the road if you modify more.

If you get a good deal on a 70mm then get it. Hold on to it. And sell it or trade it for a 65mm.

Look at our site vendor/supporter- American Muscle Gears & Installation Kits


You will have to find a local shop you can trust or research how and install them yourself.

Check out the threads in my signature discussing gears. I am pro-4.10 gears all the way.

And Ford Racing gears are perfect.

I got a shop to install them. The backlash is a ***** to get right and it's worth the money for a shop to do it in case it starts whining or something breaks. Then they cover damages and work.

I live in Louisiana so our winters are pretty warm. Never any ice really. The car performs well year round. And you can drive any car in any conditions as long as you respect it.

It should, but I'm not 100% positive.
There is some info in the Useful Info thread about GT40 conversions that may clarify that.

Yes it will. The explorer tb is 65mm so there is no need to port the intake either.

Adogg,

These guys have great suggestions and info to follow for an outline. Like someone already mentioned, if you can get a hold of a 70mm throttle body for cheap, definitely jump on it. Any negative throttle response or low end power will be so minimum, I would not worry about it.

Gears- I had 4.10's in my H/C '95 GT and loved them. They really make the car rip through the gears. We have complete gear install kits that comes with everything you need to have them installed!

Let me know if there's anything I can help with!

Shane
