youd have to buy an f-150 upper and than see if ssms would custom cut-n-weld it for you

winnie51189 Ok thanks Chris. I'm leaning towards the Windstar intake still though even though it won't net as much HP I still like the looks much better. And it's cheaper. But none the less awesome info.
November 3rd, 2008 03:10 PM
itschristorres8 no, because theres some parts you just cant reach while you port its to deep or there is a bend. it would take a while to port
i'd imagine easily $700 from most V6 vendors for such an intake
since the cut-n-weld stock upper runs $600 and has much shorter runners

the f150 has longer runners which would give you more torque while also flowing better so you'll still get good hp gains. ported and polished would be even more hp gains

winnie51189 so on the f150 what are you cutting? the IAC for clearance?

It would also seem that Ford might be interested in the part to get improved power.

that would be and idea but by the time the work is done a sheet metal intake will be a much better flowing intake

im debating about finding a CNC shop and getting a custom sheet metal upper done. it would depend on cost though vs the competitions cost

winnie51189 I mean is it better only when it's been p&p'd

Avaric3 i agree wit chris, cut-n-weld f-150 upper and p&p lower for max gains
October 31st, 2008 11:08 PM
WLJohnson05 theres also a windstar kit for sale in the air/fuel classifieds section

I sell a kit for the windstar swaps. i'll probably stop once i get the kit i have here off my hands

the f150 intake is similar only aluminum so its able to be ported and polished unlike the plastic windstar intake

if you knew about V6s the windstar intake is far more suprior over stock intake manifold
its worth 15rwtq and 8rwhp on a STOCK motor stock exhaust
with an intake and exhaust gains will get much better

itschristorres8 the most ideal V6 intake would be a cut-n-weld ported and polished f-150 intake manifold
its designed similar to the windstar only aluminum. which means it can be ported
