Intake Manifold

Looks like mine is leaking, I noticed the odor of antifreeze and while looking around for a leak I noticed a very very light puff of steam coming from behind the alternator.
I looked on to see if they have them. They do, $249.95 and the manufacturer is Dorman. My concern is the build quality and if it has the metal crossover. Has anyone bought one from Rock Auto? Fords whoesale price is $400.00.

PI intakes are a dime a dozen, do the swap while your intake is gone. price may hit 200 max...Figure no more than 160 for the intake and then the intake gaskets, I dont know how much they cost.

With the PI you'll pick up some extra horses too.

Dont buy another NPI intake

Hope this helps.

are there any problems trying to bolt a pi intake directly onto npi heads? I realize the holes aren't sized the same, but don't you need one of them bloody adapters that costs an arm and a leg?

No, you don't need the adapters. You simply need gaskets and RTV. Search for more info.
