I bought mine from summit racing a couple years ago for around $180, I had the same problem and just this year I had my heater hose blow off from the fire wall.

DO NOT BUY THE AM $199 KIT!. That one is the Dorman and it is junk I don't care if the gaskets are made of gold. If you did buy the Dorman, send it back because you are essentially bolting a NPI intake on your PI engine if you install it.

You want the FRPP one which is actually the PI intake. You can get that for $215 shipped from LRS as well, I just bought one from them a few months ago and it shipped the day I ordered it and came very nicely packed. Get the Fel-Pro gaskets for $25 on Rockauto and do the install. Torque the intake bolts to 22 ft lbs in the correct sequence.

Getting a new PI intake is good insurance anyway because at the age these cars are at now, the plastic under the metal crossover where the t-stat is usually warps and leaks. Bad design of Ford's part but at least it takes awhile for it to happen.

If you need any help with the intake let me know but its very straightforward.

Good deal. You also are going to want a tstat gasket which you can get locally anywhere. You'll need a torque wrench too if you don't have one already.

The heater core hoses since they are easy to get to while the intake is off, if your COPs are high mileage, rebuild them while they are off, injector o-rings, spark plugs are really easy to get at with the intake off although they are easy enough to do with it on too.

Oh also, a trick to get all the air out of your system when you re-fill the coolant after you do the intake and get everything buttoned up. Leave the temp sensor out of the crossover while you are putting new coolant in. That is the highest point in the system it'll let all the air escape while you are filling. Wrap a rag around the opening when you get close just keep filling a little at a time and it'll burp on its own till its done. Then coat the temp sensor threads with some black RTV, install and let it setup and you are done.
