junkyard intake

So yet another issue arises from previous owner. No gaskets at all. Just rtv. Any ways does anyone have a good picture set or video of changing to the explorer intake. It was already done but after all the other issues I want to make sure it was done right.

Your best bet is to get a haynes manual for your car. The explorer intake install will be about the same as the H.O. intake.

I'd recommend the Chilton's its way more detailed than the Haynes. Honestly the Haynes is pretty terrible... Or go all out and get a factory HELM manual. The Chilton's I used had all the torque values and patterns.

And also, you are SUPPOSED to use RTV on the ends of the intake in place of gaskets. The gaskets suck even the rubber ones, the cork ones are about useless. If the guy did RTV for ALL the gaskets like around the intake ports and everything... yeah you need to get some gaskets in there lol. Just make sure to use RTV on the ends and RTV around the water ports.

Here are some install pics when I did the one on my rebuild:

THIS is the stuff you should be using, available at any parts store



RTV around the jackets



Cut off some bolts to use as guide studs and make sure you get the other side of the water jackets too



Make your end gaskets like yea



Installed. Again, make SURE you torque it properly and do it in the right pattern. Its all in the Chilton's manual. You'll probably have to go over the torque a few days later after a few heat cycles also.

It bolts on just like it comes off, there is a torque pattern for it too and make damn sure you follow it because those aluminum intake threads WILL blow out if you don't use a torque wrench. No RTV or anything required for it, just the gasket and the torque wrench and bolts. Take pics when you take off the original intake of how all the vac hoses and all that junk went so you can put it back together although I had mine apart for awhile and remember it being pretty self explanatory.

Thanks. Just finished removing cleaning and replacing injectors and o rings. 2 questions. As I'm not the one who originally put out on. 1 there is a vaccum line from the back top of the block and it is running straight to the upper intake. Is that right? 2. No egr. Is there a mod or something for that or run without it?

That's the pcv (positive crankcase ventilation) good idea to have that on, I know smoke comes out of the dipstick if you don't have it together lol idk what or if it hurts anything if you don't have vacuum on it.

Yeah if you don't have the PCV hooked to vacuum oil will come out of the hole and burn on the motor...

You sir are a genius for the studs to hold the gasket in place while you place the lower intake down... I cannot begin to express my thanks for that idea! Should save several curse words during the next time I pull an intake.
