Oh and if it matters I ran my other vacume line this way for a cleaner look. Requires a little cutting with porting tool.

Once again, another awesome insight. Thanks.... Does that hose not get too hot? It has to touch the lower manifold.

I went to school to be a mechanic, so I know what I'm talking about most of the time.

mods in the garage, slowly getting peppier.

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.

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

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.

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.

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.

They do that cuz the hood hits there. I don't have the vap kit and I noticed in that exact spot it is almost like the hood comes to a point and rubs.

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.

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.

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