The picture in the original post is stone stock. Stock intake, stock plenum, stock air inlet and everything.

You car must be a 99 or newer, only saying that because the crossover only has one temperature sender and no plug wires.
Older models have two, one for the gauge and one for the ECU.
96 thru 98 had NPI and 99 thru 04 had PI the aluminum crossover is available for all of them.
If you are looking to upgrade you cant beat the Ford Racing Intake, if you want to spend a lot of money you could buy the "EDDY" but from everything a
have read o gain to be had on a n/a 2V
Nope, the FRPP intake IS
the PI intake IE its the same as the stock intake. You only buy one if you are a NPI car upgrading or a 99/00 or if you need to replace your leaky PI intake manifold... like me... again. They all leak eventually under the tstat housing, even the metal crossover ones. The plastic warps.
The Eddy intake will pick up some power up top but lose a little down low which is bad for a bolt on 2V. Can't rev high enough to really make use of it and needs all the help it can get on the bottom so the PI intake is optimal.
99/00 did not have these metal crossovers, it was plastic and they ALL break early on.
Yes the 96-98 crossovers have 2 bungs for the sensors. The 01-04 and the FRPP intakes have the one bung and a boss for the second bung which is the perfect spot to drill/tap for an aftermarket water temperature gauge. Or if you buy a FRPP intake for 96-98 NPI car you need to drill/tap it for the second sensor.
Word of advice to anyone reading this. If you have a bad intake manifold, NEVER buy a used one. As I said, they all warp under the tstat housing and it doesn't matter if it is a low mileage intake, it is a matter of time and heat cycles. The pullout JY motor I bought had this problem at 38k miles as I suspected it would.
That happens to all of them. If you have a high mileage car and start smelling coolant, this is likely where it is.
