You might PM Red89 while things are still fresh on his mind he just got finished doing his explorer install a week or so ago.

I just did this last weekend. Any questions ask away. I took my time, prepped and bought everything upfront and it went like butter. Was very enjoyable to do myself. Shop wanted $380 plus parts and unknowns. I was looking at $500. For that I bought new Accell injectors, new gasket kit, new vacuum hoses, powder coated my intake and valve covers (myself), purchased Autometer temperature and oil pressure gauges along with the vent gauge cage. I also did an oil change and cleaned everything up. FOR LESS!!!!!!!

EGR coolant tubes. Coolant runs through the throttlebody

so do i need to install them once i get the 65 mm throttle body that goes in to the explorer intake or is it 70mm?
and where do the hoses connect?

My car, an '89, came with them on the original throttle body. When I put the BBK 70mm on, there were ports for it. The front one comes out of the heater tube towards the front of the manifold. The rear returns to a barb fitting on the rear passenger side of the intake behind the #4 cylinder. I had to drill and tap that one. In the picture it is directly behind/ under the fuel pressure regulator. If you look at the opposite side you can see another untapped boss. You can drill and tap that one if you want to use a temperature gauge but also have the factory one still work.

The stock explorer throttle body has to have some modifications done to it also. You have to keep the throttle bracket and somehow make that work also. That's the only way the explorer throttle body will work with it. It's a little different then the regular 5.0 intake

It is definitely worth you purchasing a new 70mm throttle body. This way it is more plug and play.

Exactly. And red89. You mentioned you got a new vent gage cage. What is that?

I wanted to put a set of Autometer gauges in the car, one for oil pressure and the second for water temperature. I didn't like the look of the pillar pod on a convertible so I bought a gauge cage. It is a gauge holder that replaces the center vent above the a/c controls, holds two gauges and retains the vent registers. You do have to modify the size but it was really worth it.
