Just ordered alot...

So my plastic intake manifold broke the nipple in the back today and got coolant absolutely everywhere........ So I figured I might as well get a few other things while I'm at it. Since a few things will be coming off anyways, might as well upgrade in the process.

Ordered the Ford racing PI intake manifold, BBk CAI, Trickflow 70mm throttle body, Trick flow plenum, Steeda UDP, and a BBK Xpipe.

How much more power will this setup put out over stock? The only thing that was on it really was Roush's side exhaust (Magnaflows same side exit mufflers).

Thats a nice looking list of mods!
Aside from, maybe a little from the pulleys, there will be no increase in power... Not without a tune to tie it all together.

Truck Flow Plenum is designed for higher revving cars, so you may not see much from that.

I have Steeda short throw on mine. Came with the car when I bought it. It's nice. Better the factory but I plan to get the standard mgw.

Gas pedal mod FTW!

Also the video says the pedal is like that from being and old cable, but the truth is that ford just designed it that way for some reason

Lol
They designed it like that so people wouldn't mistake the accelerator pedal for the brake pedal and accidentally drive their car through a convenience store...

If you mistake the gas pedal for a brake pedal, your 100 years old and needed your license taken away a long time ago OR you're intoxicated or just plain stupid lol

Haha yea I did this when I bought the car. Had a buddy fully depress the gas and noticed my throttle body wasn't fully open so I used large zip ties to fill in the slack

Way more responsive when I did it but that's also because the throttle body would fully open lol

Well so far so good took out the intake, throttle body, and plenum for today. Still have to wait until Friday for things to arrive. I'm going to be like a 5 year old at Christmas time while waiting on parts to arrive!

I won't lie though I read a few places where people said they thought they were going to snap the bolt that holds the EGR valve on. I did not have this problem and I am glad lol but a few of the vacuum lines are old and deteriorating might have to replace a few of those while I'm at it

What brand of intake manifold gaskets have people used? They had felpro at autozone but didn't wanna try my luck with it.

Just called Ford and they had the gaskets for the same price so I'll just run by there tomorrow and get that one. Buddy of mine who's a Master tech at Honda said to not use it and to get the one at ford.

Fel-pro is one of the vendors that Ford uses for their gaskets.
There's nothing wrong with Fel-pro gaskets...

So I finished putting the Cai, intake manifold, Trick Flow 70mm tb and Plenum, and changed out the spark plugs. I torqued every thing down to spec and had no leaks. The car started fine and idled great at the beginning. I took it around the neighborhood and it had a very high idle any where from 1500 to 2000 and would not come down from there. I checked the TPS and it looked a little crooked on the new throttle body. Could this be the cause for the high idle? Or is it some thing entirely different that I over looked?
