If you are a foxbody no, they both have to have the EGR provisions which is the little "circular hole". That is where the EGR gases go though. You need to get a 1st gen lower to match your first gen upper. You'll also need to drill/tap the bung on the #5 runner for a sensor. Your lower will not have the bung but the 1st generation one will.

Now if you are a SN95 with the external EGR it doesn't matter what you run because the EGR is external and the sensor is located in the inlet tract.

Lol its not just that hole... keep the drill away from the lower.

Yes the EGR is the only difference in the intakes. You will have to relocate that sensor (IIRC it is the IAT sensor) into the inlet tubing like the SN95s have but that's easy.

Google "EGR Delete fox mustang" and you'll get all the info you need. Yes if you delete the EGR you can run them. Well you can run them regardless but your EGR will be non-functional. If you want to keep the EGR just sell your lower, turn around and buy the right lower and be cost neutral.

No, but getting rid of the EGR can throw a code and cause the engine to not run correctly. There are delete "plugs", all sorts of gimmicky ways to get around it but the only CORRECT way to delete it is to turn it off in the tune. I've left the EGR functional in every car I've had until I've had it tuned, then I have it turned off and I delete it.

Not sure how much clearer I can be that if you use a non-egr intake like the lower you have the EGR will be non fucntional no matter what you have hooked up. Yes your computer will throw a CEL.
