Default Explorer gt40 manifold mod ???'S

I am gonna swap a gt40 p manifold from an explorer. Is there any modification I have to do or can I just do a direct swap?

I do believe it just bolts in with no modification needed.

Would I need the gt40 p throttle body as well? Also what year explorer has the Gt 40 heads? Not the gt 40 p. Thanks a lot!

You can use any Mustang TB. I think 95 - 97 had the regular GT 40s, and post 97 had GT 40 Ps.

Only things that really changed between the years are the use of internal and external EGR on the intake and the vacuum lines changed a little.

The EGR shouldn't be an issue being in IN unless you live in 1 of the 2 counties that actually have a smog test....

The Explorer 65mm throttle body will work on the mustang as well with a slight modification.

Nothing special, be sure to pick up an internal EGR intake and the rest is the same as stock. Just figure out a configuration for the vac lines. Don't make that part complicated though....remember vacuum is vacuum so its not a big deal what gets what.
