2001 intake

my intake is leaking antifreeze from underneath my thermostat housing. from what I've been told that's not a gasket u can buy. I have to buy a new intake. it's a dorman intake that's on it now. does anyone know if I buy the ford racing pi intake if it will work with the stock heads?

Yeah it's prob built similar to the pi intake but at a lower cost than oem. The ford plastic one from the factory is perfect and from other guys on here it has held up to even 500hp.

The dorman is literally an NPI casting advertised and fitted to work with the PI heads. Its garbage and even if it WASN'T leaking you should replace it with an OEM intake. Yes, dear god yes get that PI intake and get it on there. You'll notice a jump in how well the car performs too.
