side shot of the 4.6 & 5.4 fuel rails

Top

if you look at the red circles (fuel perssure regulators, you will see that the 4.6 can be un bolted and replaced with a after market one, and the 5.4 has a inner snap ring that holdt it inplace. is there after marked fuel press. regulators for this one?)
the green are the quick connect fitings, they are on opposite sides so the fuel lines must be extended to reach. and yes you have to use the 5.4 fuel rail, i put the 4.6 rails on the 5.4 intake and they didn't fit that well... im sure you can make them go on but ill just use the 5.4 rail.

Stock NPI 4.6 intake manifold. has two coolant temp sensors.

Click the image to open in full size.
5.4 PI intake with aluminum cross over.(only one temp sensor) the green circle on the left was a coolant nipple that went to the heater core. i din't know what it went to so i hacked it off, i milled it down and taped it so i can have both temp sensors in. but later i realized what it was for... the heater core

Click the image to open in full size.
so i made this... this is going to go on the upper raidator hose and then the nipple will be ran back to the heater core.

the passenger exhaust manifold has a casting lump that there is no need for so that had to be cut off for some clearance.

Makeing room for the intake so i had to mount the coil on the strut tower

... befor the motor is installed cut this are out, (where it is hammered) the EGR needs room so it is not on the fuel lines. and you also need to add 1 inch to the EGR tube right next to the EGR valve, you can strech/ and bend in the right places to make the 4.6 fit the 5.4. i used the 4.6 because there is no room for the 5.4 egr tube.

Whats that in the scoop?

Click the image to open in full size.
Now dosn't that look AWSOME!

Click the image to open in full size.
yes it dose hit on a 3" cowl hood with a SVO scoop. but only on the intake. it can move down

Click the image to open in full size.

comming close...

oh and if you are going to do this and you have a PI mustang buy the addapter plates they are like $350 and you can use the stock 4.6 intake and notch your the under side of the hood but its not visable form the top. it will make every thing a LOT easyer, belive me. and the runners are shorter on the 4.6 so it will help make a little more hp then the 5.4 intake will. the 5.4 intake with loe longer runners will make more low RPM Torgue and less High RPM HP the 4.6 intake will do visa versa.( i would recommend the 4.6 with addapters)

Exhaust

ok so to make the exhauset fit... i cut the H in half so i can do one side at a time the Driver side fits perfect no modifications needed

Ther passenger side i either need to remove the lower stud to get it on, or can i cut the flange like this and then just bolt it on, im leaning to cutting the flange because it will be easyer then removing the stud if i h

Now if only you could put together an air box so you just shove the air right through that scoop to the TB. All you need is to connect the MAF to the TB and a custom air box on the other end of the MAF No turns, no heat/soak, just straight cold air.

Well if the stock headers fit (tight, but fit), I would assume that some unequal length shorties would be able to squeeze on. But thats not what I was asking about, I was refering to the stock h-pipe that was being modded to fit.

Those stock headers are the ones that come on 5.4's, not the 4.6's even though they look the same.
