Thanx. Great stuff it is.

Should the intake have studs coming out where the throttle body and EGR spacer bolt on?
You only need the spacer if you are going to run the tall valve covers for rocker arm clearance. You will also want to block off the EGR holes if you are not using the EGR.


$90 is a bargain and you may be able to get it a bit cheaper if you explain to him it is just an Explorer intake and not a GT40?


Yes, there should be studs or bolts, but he may not have those.


Polishing would look great, but to do it properly to a mirror shine is going to take some time and lots of elbow grease.


I actually prefer a thin coat of black as it helps get rid of the heat a bit faster.
A rough polish and tinting with some of the Dupli-Color metal tinting sprays would look good too.

This is a explorer intake however the explorers had what was call gt-40p heads and intake
And I believe I read in mustangs and fast fords
Magazine that the intake was support to flow better then The ones for the cobra
This is what I ran on my last mustang with stock heads and it ran good

Yes, I know it is an Explorer intake and about the heads.
From the flow data I have seen it does not flow better than a Cobra intake, but it is close to it in flow capability.


While they work better than the stock intake and E7 heads, they still leave a lot on the table when compared to aftermarket heads and intakes.
I have had both and the difference is considerable.
