E7TE porting

I'm doing a budget build on a car. Using the stock E7's and porting and polishing them. What kinda HP should I expect? And has anyone tried porting the intake on an EFI? Is it worth it? I can't find any deals on an intake and the junkyard here has no 5.0 Explorers.

Try ebay, craigslist or online classifieds for the explorer stuff. Also, from personal experience, porting the E7s is a waste of time/money unless you are having it done for free or DIYing it. A better idea would be to just find a set of GT40s and have them cleaned up by a local shop and just install them. Would most likely cost less or the same too.

Ya I do mostly all my own work. Still Leary on auto trans tho. Porting is easy. Done it a couple times before so I kinda know my limits and what to remove and where. I will check out other places for the GT-40 parts cause they are ultimately what I want. Thanks.

Honestly ebay as much as I hate to say it is the best place to find the GT40 stuff. I'd try to find the 3 bar regular GT40s if you can but the Ps work well too, just gotta get special wires and headers for them.

If you are DIY porting and know what you are doing then it could be a decent flowing head when done. And I say decent only because the E7 heads are that bad to begin with lol.

That's a good price for the entire intake shipped. Could have it shipped directly to Tmoss for porting too but you might not need to. They flow around 200cfm from the factory, tmoss ported ones do 240-250 cfm.

Where are you? Cause I'm in The Pas, Manitoba Canada. And that's a good price. Good with that.

I'm in Alabama, so sorry because I will not ship out of country. I don't want to get involved in that mess at the post office on international packages

I ship internationally all the time, it really is no big deal at all. But if you don't want to deal with it you don't want to deal with it...

I didn't think it was that big of a deal. It's only USA to Canada. I might have to pay duty to receive it but I am ok with that.

So I shouldn't have a problem cleaning it up myself and getting like 230 cfm from a simple polishing. Getting lots of practice. Lol. Doing my stock intake right now. Even if I don't use it it will be a good swap for a stock unpolished intake for someone.

If I can still find one. Lol

Alright. Maybe something to look into. But I don't want to waste any money in this motor. I'm still building a stroker.
