I'm the guy with the 66 mustang with an 87 5.0 engine in it and no idea what i'm doing
. But i'm very good at reading and i have some wrench turning friends that will help me along the way. I wanted to do some read ahead for a project that i'm looking at doing. I want to port and drop in an Explorer intake.
Based on this thread.....
It seems pretty straight forward. I'm going to throw in a little of this
And see where that gets me. It appears as thought the Explorer intake is VERY good, but still not as good as the $450 top of the line aftermarket intake. I have a few questions that i pose to you all to help me avoid some painfull mistakes. Here goes!
1. Based on this link
I'm guessing i need to look at a 1995 to 1997 1/4 explorer as they have GT40 heads instead of GT40P heads which i'm told cause some problems.
2. Dumb questions but porting is only done on the lower intake and not the upper correct?
3. Has anybody done this on an 87 5.0 and are there any other modifications that need to be made? It looks like for the most part i just swap out sensors and bolt it right on.
4. Is there any other guides out there other than the two i've found?
Thanks for the help all!!!!!!!!
