Recently, I've been searching for an intake manifold to swap into my V6 engine. People claim it gives a decent power/torque increase, and it makes the engine bay look really cool. Most swaps I've seen use the intake from a 96-98 Windstar. However, I've also seen a few swaps using the 4.2 intake manny from a 97-00 (?) F-150. I heard that it is easier to bolt on (sits higher up than the windstar intake), but you sacrifice hood clearance, which I am OK with doing. I was wondering 1) have any of you done it before (including Windstar) 2) if so, what issues will likely come up? Thanks.

Watching. The 3.8 had no reasonable swap options but the full race engine from Ford’s Catalog, or a turbo coupe swap, so this will be interesting.
