Mr. Red Pony I think it is just one of those things that vary between car to car.

Codeman Mine has a spot where it rubs. I will try taking a pic of it tom. I had to shave across the whole top of my TB, I have a GT TB tho as well. Ill try getting a pic tom to show you what I mean. And you can see where it rubs on mine. But I also made my own custom angled spacer so mine could be a bit bigger than his.

Sorry codeman but i have to totaly disagree with you . My stock hood does not touch that spot. Although my hood liner does touch very slightly both sides of spacer.There"s plenty of room for that spacer to go straight across.

JB weld and a hand file. I was only concerned with gasket aera at the time. Especially top were manifold was shaved. Also i see no reason for them to machine a dip on top of angle spacer unless its universial for somthing. It leaves minium gasket coverage.

Goose! and what about filling the little spaces around the parts that you filled?

what did you use to fill this?

Goose! just a FYI

the manifold bolts and rubber/plastic retainers are very expensive from ford and hard to get so that is why they are used.

I just figured I might as well do it for $30, being as i have the 99 with the bad valve cover baffle... Between the EGR delete and the catch can, maybe my 93 oct gas will actually do what it's supposed to, now that it's not being diluted with exhaust and oil.
Well for a first time it looks good. I thought is was a vap manifold because the top of the IAC looks WAY better than mine. Take a dremal with a buffing wheel to the inside. It also looked nice because I didn't know you painted it.

v6kid If anything, one day i could go pick up another one for $20 and do it again. Way down the road.

Yea and yours is in the line of flow. I dont understand why he does some things. I put mine back farther, straight down from upper one. Theres a vacume cavity behind were yours is mounted. Hose is up far enought it dosent touch manifold.
July 25th, 2010 10:21 PM
v6kid Once again, another awesome insight. Thanks.... Does that hose not get too hot? It has to touch the lower manifold.
July 25th, 2010 10:17 PM
99 BLUE V6 Oh and if it matters I ran my other vacume line this way for a cleaner look. Requires a little cutting with porting tool.

99 BLUE V6 Be carefull with spring on TB. Mine got pinched on angle plate and caused a vacume leak. I notched the plate slightly.

99 BLUE V6 I also did me IAC like this. Much cleaner look. Got some copper 90"s from lowes (plumming)and silver sodier them together and painted black. I also notched the plastic so hose would bend around.

July 25th, 2010 10:05 PM
v6kid That ever even crossed my mind... Thanks, Add that to the list of things to do.

v6kid yeah, I have two sets now lol. I kept all the hardware when i got the manifold from the junkyard and he sent me a set. I figured they would be new, at least not rusty.
