what do you mean? the 5.0 explorer intake is a direct fit for the mustang. I think there are few ports you need to plug, but thats about it...

yea you will need to plug a few of the vac ports on the heads and you will also need to drill and tap the bung on the #5 intake runner for the ACT sensor. (relocating it looks like crap)

the "good" one comes from the 96 and early 97 explorers. that one will have the boss on the #5 intake runner. the later 97 and up ones will not and also have the internal egr.

i have one off of an early 97 all tapped, painted and ready to go for sale

i actually might have it sold locally. i have 2 people that want it.

but as for power over stock i couldnt really tell you. i did my h/c/i all at once but i can tell you that i gained 60rwhp and 26rwtq. but the torque curves were soo much better.

stock:


h/c/i:


there are plenty of DIY threads. its just an intake swap. do a google search
