Ford Info Gurus: 04 Taurus intake manifold air valve, what RPM to set it at?

I know someone on here can tell me at what RPM the intake manifold air valve actuates for a 04 taurus 3.0 OHV. I am swapping this engine into a 99 Taurus and am considering hooking up a RPM switch to control this thing so I can take full advantage of the dual plane intake plenum. Hopefully someone can look this up somehow. Thanks in advance.

Its a vulcan (OHV). The dual plane manifold is only on 2004-2007 OHV models. Its the round thing on the back of the plenum on the passenger side with a 2 wire connector. I was able to check this out today with a customer's consent using my scanner while I was looking at their car, and their 04 model actuated at 3500 RPM.

Just for fun:
the thread with a few pics of the swap and what a 99 Taurus looks like with Sport wheels.
