P I Intake

Can you put on a Ford P I intake on a 97 4.6 without changing the heads? If so what extra parts should be bought?

Yes you can, google "PI Swap" or "PI intake swap". You'll need a few things but its not that bad, I forget off the top of my head. I'm more of a pushrod guy still even though I've had this modular for a few years now. PO did the swap on mine and it in an entire engine anyway lol.

Thanks, Looked on AM for the heads for this model but could only find heads for the 5.0.

That's for new PI heads on AM but honestly you can get them for half that price for the pair if you look on forum classifieds like the Corral/SVTP/Stangnet etc... CL might have some too around you. The PI intake alone is ok but until the other NPI stuff comes off too it'll still be a slug. A bonus to using a NPI shortblock is that you get higher compression and more power. PI swapped NPI motors cars are actually a little quicker all other things being equal.

Thanks for the info. Got a bid on a set, and also found a 01 motor that had a rod knocking that has the heads and 21 lb injectors. My luck I'll end up with 2 sets of heads. What's involved in rebuilding the injectors, or do you think they would not need it, maybe just o rings?

Honestly I'd send them out to get rebuilt and flow tested. They come back to you like new with a flow sheet to confirm they are within X percent of each other. It used to be $100 back in 2007, would have to look it up now. You can just get an already rebuilt set too on the evilbays.

Can't help it man, I'm a tinkerer. If I do end up with two sets I'll probably give it a try on one. If not I'm with ya on the pro's.

And honestly as far as ported heads... all depends. You can get a new ported set for $1500-$1800 depending on where you go. A local porter around me is VERY well known and awesome at it and he charges $1500 plus I could probably sell him back my cores for $100-$200 depending. Or you can spring for TFS heads for I think $2300 that will outflow ANY safely ported PI head right out of the box. However PI heads are proven to support up and over 800hp fully ported out so if you don't need more than that save the $1k.

Wo, this car is going to be a budget build. Trying to maximize power with minimum money. You know sort of a self made callange.

You can make good power for not too much money but you're going to have to spend a decent chunk to utilize what you do have the in the most effective way.

So I can get more power by just changing the heads. Even more with a conservative DYI porting. Or maximize power letting a pro port. Sounds like a win, win, win. Then add the PI intake, hm, nice

No you should do it all at once. Honestly man I'd just bolt on the PI heads as is with the PI intake and PI cams, do the whole PI swap. Then the bolt ons and a 93 octane tune and see where you are. It'll be a big difference from the NPI motor.
