Hope I don't get any one upset, Ive done about 3 days of research and I'm still confused. Anyway, long story short I had an engine swap done on an 01 mustang gt, used all of my accosories including the intake manifold. After a couple of days I noticed it had a leak in a very common place (where the hose connects) so I thought no biggie time for a new one anyway. So after paying for the engine and swap I was left almost broke so aluminum was out of the question, however i had enough for a ford racing PI intake manifold. Once I got it, I took it to the shop where my mechanic said hed swap it for free. Later that day, he tells me it does not fit, and it seems like the bottom part is much larger. And when when it sits on the motor, it hovers. Does this mean I have a non PI motor now? (non PI heads) He states the engine was pulled out of an 04gt. I have also done research on non PI engines using PI intakes with modifications such as adapters and or RTV, i guess I'm just lost because I thought that the FR PI IM would be a direct fit. I read reviews on American muscle saying that the biggest problem they encounter is the modification of the alternator bracket but that's it. Has anyone else had this problem? Also, did some more research and it looks like the intake manifold that I had on my car was a non PI manifold, I googled many pics and it's a close resemblance. Makes me wonder if the previous did other ghetto types of mods that caused me to have to replace the engine. Idk.. I hope I'm able to get some good knowledge here. Sorry for venting, thanks for reading.
