I will be doing a new write up video shortly. I'm looking to use a better camera. Also I have not forgot about moving the writeup to a dedicated page either. I have some time off for the holidays coming up that hopefully I can use to our benefits

Well look at it like this. The stock hp of a 98 Mark is 290hp which is 30 over the PI GT. The same engine in a 98 Cobra has 305hp(from a cam and intake upgrade.) a 45hp gain over the GT and 320hp for 99-01. A 30-60hp increase stock to stock is a deal. The weight savings help power to weight ratio. The 4v can deeply breath, where the 2v struggles.

Have you removed an engine before??? I took one out and put one in. Tweaked a wire harness and flashed my ecm. If that's a lot of work then I feel the hp buisness isn't cut for you. No offense but there are 2 bolts and 6* trans bolts hold the engine in the car (not counting exhaust). 22 bolts for a valve cover, 20 heads bolts, not even getting to the timing cover, timing componets etc. Starting from a better platform with more stock hp off the bat sounds like a great deal.

And I'm gonna set this straight. A BOLT ON is just that. Something you add. Heads and Cams are NOT bolts ons. You are cracking open an engine when you REPLACED thoses. TB's and Intakes technically not a bolt on because you are replacing and not adding. But is, because your not opening the engine. Exhaust, FI, nitrous, thoses are bolt ons. I just hate when I read "I had full bolt ons." But yet no Actual BOLT ONs. Sorry for the rant but its true. Oh and have you ever noticed how just about ever youtube video has H/C/I on it. That's BS as well.

You should read my write up. A 4.6 is a 4.6. When it comes to install. Hell a v10 fits in a new edge mustang.

It would be interesting to hear what it would sound like with an aftermarket exhaust.

Unfortunatly the triton v10 is built with a 5.4 liter deck height. So lt's maybe out. There is a guy on youtube that has the only one I've seen. Not counting fords one of a kind 4.6 deck height v10. It would be sweet though. Azure you better be in Detroit this year for Mustang Alley.

Gasket match the intake. There are supposed to be 2 oval shaped gaskets DO NOT lose or damage those. There are no replacements that have been found. They are discontinued and no parts house has them.

Can you use the stuff in a tube that can make a gasket?

I know I've been checking everything that I can to make sure of what I'm getting. I already knew about the gaskets and I got them all off the other intake waiting.

I wasn't sure if I mentioned about the gaskets already or not.
