I just bought a 98 Mark, it's my first 2and gen Mark, before this I had a 94 and a 93. I noticed the 2 first gens had much more power than my 2nd gen. Granted they both had 93 ECMs but they also had 170k miles on them and the 98 I have only has 55k. I've been reading how poor the intake flows and I was wondering if anyone has successfully swapped the Gen 1 on it. I still have 2 complete setups, I know eventually I'll have IMRC issues and the box is expensive if you can find it, and the first gen has the progressive throttle body which in theory gives you more torque along with a nicer runner design. I thought about the cobra manifold but you have to engineer the EGR tube and you lose the cruise control.
