Well after doing the install I figured I would add some pics. Just a couple of things I did that might help. If you buy the Boss and install kit from Ford you'll see the lack of directions. I bought the kit because I did not want to have to splice wires but guess what... Anyway not a big deal and here is how I did it. I'm sure there is a better way but this will work.
1st off what I used for the splice. If you don't own a good soldering system hit up a Frys and get one. I use this thing for Everything.

Then find the wire your going to splice.Pretty easy to find it the one you unplugged up front.
I'm using a piece of wire from a old dc power supply of the same gauge. Make sure to offset the cut and pull the shrink tube down a good bit so it does not melt from the solder gun heat.


I used a little clip to hold the wire in place and then the heat gun to shrink the first small then the big shrink wrap as one.

I think it should look like this when completed soldering.

And this is after it is all together. I had to hit Harbor Freight
and pick up some black plastic wire cover.

In the install kit your going to get 3 lines/hoses. The dbl one has the Exact same fuel line as what is on the car. Just pull them apart and use just the one. No need to pull your fuel line off. Now I let my car sit All Night and had NO Fuel pressure. It is very possible that your line will have a lot of pressure so watch out for that.
Your also going to get a bracket that you'll have to figure out where the heck it goes. It installs on the drivers side rear of the manifold. It holds the new valve that you just spliced a wire to reach all the way around.


Again this is what I did and by all means look at what other people do as I'm kind of lazy and just tossed it together.

Humm... I didn't have to splice anything when I installed my Boss IM. Why did you do it this way?
The kit I picked up from Ford relocated the plug and hose to the rear of the engine. The Boss moves that valve from on top with a new one to the back.

Yea I spliced into mine, mine looks oem. The relocation kit has a completely different setup up for the purge valve
Purge Valve is the word I was looking for. Lol.

I didn't splice anything, but I have the covers and just bought the boss air tube from the ford parts counter. Looks very OEM, I'd post pics but I don't have them on my phone. I'm sure I put them up somewhere if you want to search my threads though.

Oh I see! Well, I'm ghetto. I just bolted my purge valve to the block. Anybody else freaked out by that big open cavity between the manifold and the block? I was like, woah... I'm gonna line it with aluminum foil so I can bake some hot wings in it while I drive to work. Lol :D

I bolted mine to the block too. You can't really see it unless you're looking for it though.

go with Bama, or get it done at a Dyno shop by a trusted/reputable shop. I love my intake manifold, just hate the way my airaid is so snug while fitting it on the throttle body

I still have to bolt mine up. Its just dangling in the canyon right now. I check it often to make sure its still all in one piece, lol. I know, I am lazy, but this weekend I will tackle it, and bolt it the right way with the bracket I have.
