If anyone wants to know what they need for the windstar swap, I can share my knowledge with you. I bought the VAP auto kit.. and not quite sure if it was worth it. If you want to do it the easy way, you need the brackets spacer and TB, but that's it. The rest can be gathered yourself, for much cheaper.

Yeah, not too impressed with the elbow... I like the love I'm getting for the shitty workmanship, I did all the mods to the manifold... lol jk... What can you expect? It's my first time working on the windstar manifold, and my first time with JB weld like that... No! The catch can adds 25hp! 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.

You will be happy once you get it on. That manifold bolt dont look right. Do you have the rubber inserts that go in bolt holes?

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.

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.

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