Gt40 intake!!!

So I just purchased these from another member on here thank you very much to that member. Just thought I would share it with the rest of you. Has anyone put one of these on a 94 gt? Do I need anything special other then a new elbow? And does anyone have any ups on installing it? Thank you for all help

Yes u will need a special fitting to disconnect the fuel line , but other then that its pretty strait forward , just make sure it's all clean and scraped to flush install it , use the blue silicone on this so if it gets in the intake runner it will do no damage , good luck and happy install

You know where I can get this special fitting? And what kind of gasket set will I need?

The tool you'll need to disconnect the fuel line can be purchased at any auto parts store or tool store.

OP,

Make sure to clean up all of the surface extremely well. If you have to second guess yourself, keep cleaning! The only other thing you should need is RTV sealant and the proper torque sequence. Everything else l can think of was already mentioned..

I would, take advantage of the extra airflow. If I'm not mistaken you can put up to a 70mm on it without porting.

Maybe at some point. Right now I still have the stock 86 block which has flat top pistons with no valve relief, so I can't really do a cam swap to really see more power out of the heads and intake. I'm gonna keep shopping for a complete explorer motor and use that for my more serious build.

At least until I can save up for a really stout block with forged internals.

Nice man that sounds sick. I have the intake and lts in mail!! Iam also thinking about selling a flywheel I purchased and buying a tb and gears. Are you running gears and a upgraded flywheel?

Not yet, I'm gonna go with some 4.10's on this one. It's going to be a N/A car for a while before I can finally afford the supercharger kit I want. I know a guy who's got an 86 hatch that's been MAF converted running a stock explorer motor minus bolt ons and a cam and he's turning 11's in the quarter and put down something like 340rwhp. Pretty potent for such a mild combo. And I want to say the motor has close to 100k on it.

Damn that car is badass!!!! And is yours an auto or 5speed? I was thinking 4.10 to but people say there overkill for a 5speed and gas mileage? And if your looking to upgrade your flywheel I will be posting my new one for sale. Your going to need it if your pushing those kind of numbers lol!

Right! Yeah, mine's a 5 speed. Teu actually do pretty good seeing how low geared 5th gear is.

Nice, I'll keep the flywheel in mind!

The gasket set you need to get is for the 1993 cobra motor or 5.0l explorer motor. I have the fel pro part number if you need. Also get black rtv and use that to seal the lower intake to cylinder heads. If the set comes with cork end pieces , I don't use them and just use a bead of rtv on the ends instead - never had leakage issues. Good luck

Any or most auto stores carry intake gasket sets. Usually sold complete. Always use the blue rtv sealant. Fairly easy to install. Good luck!

Thanks guys for the help and I just purchased a gasket set for the explorer intake. And it has an egr spacer on the intake so does that mean it has and external egr system? And if it has to be deleted that is not a problem. All I need now is intake elbow and possibly a new tb I wish I could find a used one for my car.

If its going on a 94/95 then the intake has nothing to do with the EGR, its all external. If you get an adapter elbow it'll have the EGR provisions on it.

TB... there are a million threads on this. The intake opening is 70mm so it makes sense to some ppl to use a 70mm TB. With that said a smaller TB will increase velocity and if the car is still using the junk E7 heads you might want that velocity because the heads flow dick and won't pull any more air through a bigger TB anyway but the bigger TB will decrease velocity and therefore power. Lots of 94/95 Cobra guys (which came with the stock 60mm TB that every other 5.0 in 94/95 got) don't upgrade the TB until they put a supercharger on it or get the intake ported. No need.

I was looking at 70 mm tb but it looks like there is no need to spend my money. The Intake is mildly ported but yes Iam still using the stock heads. And yes the intake does has something to do with the egr cause if the Intake had the egr built in and my car uses an external system those to things are conflicting and the one on the Intake need to be plugged or something I believe.

yea some explorer intakes had either internal or external. the external (which you have) has the same setup as what you originally had with it on a spacer by the throttle body. Which is the ideal one to use without having to plug things up. Thats if you want to keep egr all together. Ive deleted mine with a block off plate, no issues so far.

I have checked mine with a mic and the explorer intakes are only 67-68 mm openings. Spot on otherwise.

I would also take into consideration what the final goals are. For me I plan on going forced induction and don't want to spent the money twice.
