hello , I have a 1999 3.8 v6. I saw a post here asking what was the intake , and it happened to be windstar. I like how it looks and I wild like to attempt myself. now as I've looked over the Internet, and im confused to which intake pieces I need. from my understanding, the intake is made up of the upper and lower parts. but some of the pieces I've seen have had some parts named "center" for position. making that the 3rd piece?. could someone point me in the right direction which intake parts I need for my year ?
-thanks

You need the upper intake only, from a 96-98 Windstar van.
It requires remote mounting the IAC to fit under the stock hood.

so would this piece not work? it has to be the 96-98 ?

what about this one :

or this one?

The second link is what you need. The first and third are useable but don't fit without a decent size cowl hood.
The center you don't need at all.

SlowSix thank you!
I saw somewhere , this guy cutout the space he needed and covered it with a hoodscoop. would that work in my case? or would those be too big? .

also would the 1st and 3rd just bolt on to the lower intake or would I need to swap something else ? I kind of like the Ls look haha.

and if it's not too much could you possibly explain what is the "center" ? I feel I need to expand my knowledge

thanks again !!

I guess you could cutout the hood, I just don't like cutting holes in mine personally, lol.

The second question I'm not entirely sure of. I'd assume they bolt up but idk.

The center looks like a middle intake portion. I've never seen one in person but it looks like those years had the upper, a center portion, and then probably a metal lower intake.

I saved these from VAP before his site went down:

I have the old install manual here:
https://drive.google.com/open?id=0BxQ5rb6gU6CfTWRwdkt1ZmtsQjhPeUVOXzhsM3lFblVqUi1R

And this was one of Matt's last hoo-rah's before he discontinued the kits. This is the mod manual if you pull a junker intake:
https://drive.google.com/open?id=0BxQ5rb6gU6CfN2xnVWJERWh5VHM

All though the above documents don't say it anywhere - all credit and possible copyrights go to Matt at VAP.

oh man! thanks!. I'll definitely take some time to read this.

and since you're here could you possibly explain the "center" portion of the intake?. SlowSix kind of did. but k just want some confirmation

Im getting things together to do mine and Im wondering . 1. what do you do with the IAC? move it or not use it at all. 2. what all do I need to plug? theres a few vac lines going to the egr bracket do I plug them? mostly wondering because I'm don't want to cut a hole in my hood and the iac is in the way. If anyone has any details on this Id be forever in your debt. I have a bama tune so I make adjustments
