I picked up an intake off of an 03' Crown Vic from the Upullit junkyard. I got everything from the intake up except for the fuel injectors and EGR for $55.... not a bad deal. Just have a couple of questions that I searched for but couldn't find the answers too (maybe didn't look hard enough?).

1. Is there anyway I can use the throttle body off of the CV or my original TB on this intake with my set up? Or will I have to find a 96-97 throttle body?
2. EGR blockoff's recommended? Opinions?
3. The heater hose under the manifold needs to be replaced if I read correctly. Which application is the best fit for this?
4. I read about the extra coolant temp sensor. Any other alternatives to tapping a new bung for the temp sensor?

Any input is greatly appreciated!!!

Thanks,
Brandon

You can flip it around to the other side and it will function the same as the 96/7 style

2. EGR blockoff's recommended? Opinions?

If you get a tune for it, they are fine. I'd recommend keeping egr and finding a 96/7 egr tube though.

3. The heater hose under the manifold needs to be replaced if I read correctly. Which application is the best fit for this?

99-04 mustang or 01+ crown vic tubes work, you also need the water pump nipple.

4. I read about the extra coolant temp sensor. Any other alternatives to tapping a new bung for the temp sensor?

You can use the aluminum crossover from an npi intake, otherwise there is no other option (DO NOT USE A T FITTING).

Any input is greatly appreciated!!!

You also need 96/7 fuel lines and rails (96-98 crown vic rails work too if you flip them around). You'll need a few dozen misc vacuum lines, some wiring pigtails for the tps and iac, and the throttle cable.

Thanks,
