you're also going to need to find the correct valve covers. the 97-98 mark's had COP's, so if you get those you will need to change your ignition to COP's instead of coil packs. Otherwise you can find any 96-98 or 93-96 4v valve covers and re-use your coil packs.

DRIVE A HYBRID MY MUSTANG NEEDS YOUR GAS
The engine that I bought had been opened: the guy took out the valve covers and the upper intake. With the intense rainy season the engine got flooded, with about 3 gal of water on the pan, and about 1/2 gal in the intake.
I took it apart and cleaned it up. Amazingly enough the engine seem to still be in good shape, and after a good clean it spins freely.
I found a considerable amount of carbon deposits in the intake, mostly I the non-injected ports, and a couple of square ports with deposits.
How concern should I be in regards to the state of the engine?
I am in a tight budget and am trying to avoid taking the heads off, but want to make things the right way.
I'm doing this on a 99 GT. I got the 96-98 cobra intake manifold, so should I still be using a 99-01 cobra intake tube or should I use the 96-98 intake? I think the only way that a cobra strut tower brace will fit is if I get the 96-98 one.
