GT40 Intake

I've been reading the article on Five.Oh Info about the GT40, Explorer, and Cobra intakes. If I want to keep all of my EGR in working order, and don't want to drill or tap anything on the intake, it looks like the Cobra is my only choice. Am I correct?

Stock '90 LX 5.0 5spd

1st generation explorer intakes have provisions for the EGR. As far as drilling/tapping. You don't have to, you can just relocate the IAT sensor to the intake tube.

Coolant temp is in the same spot. Its the IAT that needs moved as I said or one can tap the #5 runner if its a 1st gen explorer intake that has the boss for it.

To be setup the same as the stock 86-93 Mustang setup there are two cast in bosses on the Explorer lower manifold that must be drilled/tapped. One is on the outside of the #5 runner for the ACT sensor. Drill and tap the cast boss for 3/8 NPT (pipe thread). The other is at the very rear passenger side corner for the coolant line to the EGR spacer. The boss should be just above where the water passage is at the rear passenger side of the manifold. You need to drill and tap that boss for 3/8 NPT as well.

Before you drill/tap anything you should verify that your Explorer manifold has the cast bosses, some did not. Also if you have the stock Mustang manifold verify that those places have 3/8 NPT threads as well so that the Mustang sensor and fitting will fit in the Explorer manifold.

Gah, fox... ugh... I swapped my 95 around with an exploder intake and all I had to do was nothing lol. The 94/95 is a 100% direct swap with no mods necessary for any GT40 lower.

At any rate, drilling/tapping is easy or if you are not comfortable with it, take it somewhere and have them do it.

So, all except the Cobra intake require some type of modification. The Cobra will be a direct swap in?

If its a 93 style one yes.

There are literally thousands of threads on how to swap an explorer intake into a fox though. Just google it and you'll get a bunch of how tos. Honestly if you are worried about having to do a few mods here and there to install parts this might not be the right hobby for you.

I'm not worried about doing mods, but if I can find a direct bolt on intake, I'd rather go that route. Thanks for the advice.

Use the Center Section of a 94-95 CAI & it has the IAC port built in it. The Temp sensor on my 96 Explorer intake (GT40) has the port in the same place as my stock intake.
