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.
