Personally I prefer the crown vic tube and ditching the satc cold lockout (heater cold auto on sensor)
So, how did you make the ground connection?i don't think my cold lockout even works, but i left it in by cutting it off the old tube, flaring it on both ends, then splicing it into the hose i used to connect the PI tube to the heater core. figured it was in their before, why not leave it still blows cold air on my feet in the winter. 'shrug'
Remove that "hole" if that's even possible, and you'll be drawing air in through there.
Seems my water pump nipple hits this center hole, do you remove that? This intake also had like a bigger foam tampon on it that I slide off also.
I have a 95 coolant tube, 96 coolant tube and 04 explorer one that came with this intake because I pulled it off the engine myself. I didn't try all the tubes yet
Are you referring to dropping in a 180° t-stat? I was planning on replacing the t-stat, but would the 180° cause cat & emissions probs (e.g., inspection failure this coming October)? I could swap it back just before inspection I suppose, but what about MPG with the 180°? I read that dropping temp hurts fuel economy and screws with the cats & emissions but can ultimately boost HP a little.while you have all this out, look into adding one of the cooling mods for the driver's head.
Thanks! Now all I need are gasket numbers, since I forgot to mention those. I can find 'em in online catalogs for the stangs I reckon -- I assume THESE are at least the same for all 4.6L 2V PI's?Ford part number xr3z-18b402-aa
Ford part number f75z-8555-aa
According to the YT comments for that video, the part #'s are 5W7Z-8C387-AA and 5W7Z-8C388-AA. They are available online from a number of suppliers.You can't find those o-rings anywhere, at least I can't find em.
There's an o-ring that seals in the bore in the engine block.1. Pump o-ring and gasket or one and the same??
There is an oring that goes between the cap and thermostat; that's it.2. Thermostat o-ring.
There's no metal layer in the stock intake manifold gasket.3. Fel-Pro vs. OEM PI intake gaskets.
Do the OEM ones have a metal or composite layer sandwiched in, making them superior and thus accounting for one OEM being the price of the entire Fel-Pro set, or is it just the usual price gouging because of it being OEM?
This is what it looks like; you have to knock out a freeze plug, and put in two bolts to install it; the part needs a hacksaw cut first, and you have to make a small bracket to hold the other side.
