Kami, if you have any other questions, PM me, I'll be more than happy to answer. I've walked several other members through the install.

Honestly since i plan on getting a new car after college anyways, i think i'll put the windstar swap on the no-go list now that there aren't the VAPkits anyways. but thanks man, reps for offering!

ah ok thanks.

Yeah didn't catch the post above. I caught the link that comes with a download to diy.

I'm really just looking for the measurements for the parts I need to have made (like the throttle jig) so I can do it all right the first time since this is my only car. Unless I can temporary run it without a jig made?
My cruise control is useless now since my after market steering wheel removed most of its functions. So I don't mind having that out. So I can leave that out of the equation.

I dont think so, I changed so much at once that I have no idea where the actual leak is so thats what my main issue was/is. Doing just the windstar upper in one project would have been pretty simple, and you can track down vac leaks pretty easily with just that and fix them.

That being said. Before I had the tune installed I really couldnt feel much if any difference via buttdyno by doing the ported lower + windstar/cai. The tune made much bigger difference and was a hell of a lot easier to do haha

Mine is having a vac leak now that it's cold I believe. I don't think I seal the stock windstar IAC ports on top very well...

green, where you been? When did you get back?

Ill have to see come spring/summer when its warm out if the idle issue vanishes on initial start up or not. Its a pain in the ass, vac leaks suck.

I was in bootcamp Ft. Jackson SC, just graduated on the 20th. Home till the 2nd then Im going off to Virginia by Newport News to go learn my job. Cant drive until Im done with that Poor car sits stored in my dads garage until probably May.

Yeah. I just got a new phone that has a MUCH better camera on it so I can take some decent pictures of everything tomorrow when its light out. No big deal. Ill go write myself a reminder now so I don't forget.

If I remember correctly he relocated the IAC to the bottom of the intake right behind where the TB attaches to the intake so taking a picture of it directly may be problematic. Ill do what I can.

Uhhh well yeah taking a picture of where the IAC goes in isnt going to be possible without taking some shit off which Im not doing right now. I took these which gives you somewhat of an idea of whats going on however I dont think they'll help much. Regardless, here they are in case they're of use.

In this one the IAC is right next to the black hose in the center of the picture. It goes straight down, turns to the rear, then turns right and goes up underneath the TB. You can see it just above that green tube in the center, theres some hose clamps on it. (Incidentally the mound of hose clamps is probably where part of my leak is from, Ill be re-doing most of the hosing at a later date)




Ignore the black on the red pipe, it isnt burnt its from rubbing on the hood liner a bit. Look at the black hose that goes straight up to the rear of the TB. Almost straight down on the opposite side of the intake is where the hole for the IAC is. Its actually slightly forward to where that black hose is mounted.
