thanks, i was debating on even doing the valance, after the lettering i still had about half a can, so said why not, using the plasti dip if I didnt like it just rip it off. I think when i go to get the whole car painted I'll just have the shop paint the lettering and valance in and make it permanent

Thanks man, appreciate it. I went a little overboard bc I was bored and trying to stay busy, so I wet sanded it with 1500, and buffed it with my 9" rotary with a white foam pad and Meguiars medium cut compound, then waxed it with some Nuba lol.

Looked up resources for how to swap for the windstar intake, think i might be picking one up at a local junkyard soon and doing this swap!
Anyone whos done this, is it fairly simple to do if you just pull the intake from a junkyard instead of buying a "kit"?

About to pick up a PCM from a guy here in OK that has his old tune on it before he stripped the car. He had a similar build, and it was actually tuned right. He's giving it to me for free so hopefully mine will run better.

I think my delay has been long enough, pulling the m112 and adapter off after work and replacing the intake/adapter gasket.

Should have it off and back on within 3 hrs... if i have all the necessary tools at home.

I just wish there was a way to take the adapter off without having to take the m112 off.
