Yes, but having difficulty removing the plate. Two of the torx bolts are frozen. We broken (twisted) three torx screwdrivers and bits trying to remove them. Thought about heating them and about cutting straight lines in them to see it makes it easier to remove them.
Btw, one it comes off, do we use brake cleaner or carburetor cleaner to remove the build up? Or something else?
Thx, jhp & son
Thanks for the advice. Going to check out a stock intake (for $15.00) with the EGR spacer and throttle body. May grab the heads and valve cover while we are there (He told us he would sell all for $80). Sound reasonable? He said he wanted to keep the cam, though.How much do you want to use that original intake?
Stock 5.0 intakes can be had fairly easily. Are you on any local FB groups? If so, i'd put out a feeler for a stock manifold. Should be free or near-free depending on the condition.
Drill out the messed up torx heads, remove the plate and set it aside and just install a nice clean stocker, or install an explorer intake.
Those studs can be a PITA to get out. I've usually put a pipe wrench on them and end up snapping one or two. Given how plentiful and cheap stock HPO intakes can be, I wouldn't waste too much time on it.
Here's the links that I'm talking about:Link to pictures?
Thx.I don't think it matters. I believe it's just open/close and not directional
