    and wants 600$ for it all

    That's a ripoff for that setup used. Not to mention it's a crappy intake. Get something better.

    Oh, and any is spelled A N Y. It's only one extra letter, so why don't people write it out? Is instant messaging ruining America's spelling and grammar skills? Methinks so.

    I would search for a Cobra intake instead. I think it is too much since you can find it for around 600 and you don't need the adapter since the kneck is curved on the sn95 5.0's. BTW, the Cobra intake is not crappy... It is good up to 400hp.

    Yes thats a rip off. I got mine out of a junk yard for $35. With an elbow and gaskets it came to $150. Or you can find them on eBay for about $300 without the elbow.

    And theres nothing wrong with the GT40 Explorer manifold. Its EXACTLY the same as a 93 Cobra on the inside. The only difference is the exterior appearance of the upper manifold. The lower manifold is the exact same thing. Trust me. Mine has the same part number as my friends 95 Cobra lower.

    All 5.0 Explorers have them. The later ones had the GT40P heads too. Which out flow the stockers.

    From a junkyard that you yank out yourself... between $400-500 bucks... maybe less... off Ebay, prolly closer to $600-$700. I would holdoff, and save all that. pick up a Trick Flow intake, and a set of AFR heads... yeah, definately much more expensive, BUT it'll give you more power gains than a set of Explorer intake and heads...
