metalhead said:I was considering a K&N filter or intake kit. But headers would have to be a little ways down the road. By the way is it true that the factory spark plug wires will not fit with headers. I was thinking about putting headers on my old chevy blazer I had and a guy at an exhaust shop told me that I would need to change the wires.
Having messed with putting mustang EFI/intakes/engines into trucks for a bit, I would recommend two things for the first improvementsmetalhead said:.....was considering several different mods/add ons.I was wondering if any of you have a throttle body spacer ....
I'd like to hear more about these projects?metalsmith said:Having messed with putting mustang EFI/intakes/engines into trucks for a bit.
Interesting :brownbag You got any data to back this up?metalsmith said:The efi intake on the Broncos/trucks really should be on cars and the car intakes should be on trucks. The car intake really builds better torque on the low end then the truck EFI, but needs a different cam to take advantage of that. and the truck EFI intake gives much better hi end flow.
My personal opin/experience is the stock EFI intake give better low torque, ie better velocities in the runners, (mostly because they are a bit restrictive) And they seem to benefit most from the throttle body spacers, intake spacers that are available. IMHO this doesnt take into consideration the differences between roller blocks and older flat tappet blocks. I haven't got a flat tappet cam EFI running yet.(give me some warmer weather)Fireguy50 said:I'd like to hear more about these projects?
The first waas a street rod my neighbor needed help with. it went very smooth and I didn't learn enough to take on the conversion in my 80 F150, which is being done with Ebay parts.

From my experence, the 5.0L Truck intake flows well all the way to 4500RPM. The 5.8L and 7.5L intakes don't flow after 3500RPM.
The basic Car 5.0L intake sucks on most engines.
