Just want a quick confirmation as to which years work. I have read '01 and up. I found a guy trying to sell a '00 "PI intake." Would this work or no?

I don't know. I thought people avoided them because of the cracking I didn't hear anything about not being able to tap it for second sensor. Anyone know the answer?

i'm pretty sure the plastic itself cannot be tapped for the sensor....if i remember correctly, on my old all-plastic NPI intake that cracked, there are metal inserts in the plastic, that are threaded and that is where the sensors go...can anyone confirm?

you can not drill and tap an all plastic pi intake for the second temp sensor. i've heard of people drilling it into the tstat housing or relocating it to the side of the engine block somewhere.

It should be a deal killer.

I have also heard they cannot be drilled and tapped. Most people have been using a brass plumbing Tee to install both sensors.

This thread shows the fitting with 1 sensor and a hose fitting, but if yours has the heater core nipple in the back you could use it for both sensors. The 02 explorer intake in the pic does not, that is why he has the heater hose in front.

hope this helps

there is nothing to remove. it is one piece.

frank was talking about moving the aluminum crossover from an NPI to a PI intake, so he didn't have to have the one that came with the PI tapped ($$$)
