I was going cheap, so I didn't want to buy the IMRC delete plates and intake gasket. EGR stayed because I wasn't going to tune it for a while and I am in an emissions county.

IMRC delete is free if you do it yourself

Gaskets are not. I was on a shoestring budget.

The gaskets are reusable.

Yeah, you are in the same area of Texas that I am. TBH, you could probably get a plate and block off the EGR and they would never know it. IMRC delete gives you a bit more mdrange and high RPM power.

Default 4v swap

i had a couple of questions about the swap. After reading this article I got excited and bought a mark 8 engine for about 300 bucks. (great deal) I also got some long tube headers, etc. so here are my concerns now (should have done more research)

1) will the long tubes work with the swap?

2) instead of doing the IMRC delete I just opened them up from the back of the engine and locked them open with the metal shim that is located there. since it is out of the car it was quite easy to do. would this be ok?

3) i heard that the heat on cylindar 7 and 8 tend to get hot and blow plugs etc. since the engine is out of the car should I get a cooling MOD?

4) would a 99 aftermarket inlet tube work?

5) do you have pics of the heater hose fix issue?

6) would i have to swap the 96 gt fuel injector lines with the mark 8 engine?

thanks for any help you can give me. just like you, im on a shoe string budget. i hope to god this engine has no problems since i got it so cheap

1) If the headers are for a 2v SOHC no they will not work because the 2v exhaust ports are circular and the 4v are rectangular.
2) You can tie them open but why not just delete them if the motor is out instead of having possible issues down the road.
3) The cooling MOD is a concern with C heads, specifically on 03-04 cobras. This motor has B heads.
