    Ok guys here's what I got. Couple of issues need help resolving so I can fire this puppy up. 95 Mustang.jpg


    Ok first intel. Its a 95 convertible with a cobra under the hood. Issues I'm having are as follows.

    1) Missing what may be a vacuum line under the intake and cant find
    2) The EGR tube from manifold to exhaust looks like it was cut or broke clean. Wondering what options are for replacement and removal.
    3) There is what looks to be a vacuum cluster with red and green lines that have looked to have broken. They are located passenger side front fender close to air box any clues.
    4) Top intake bolts. Can anyone send me pics of there upper intake throttle body so I can see if I can figure out what bolts are used to hold it down.

    Would have been nice of the guy who took it apart to have put the bolts with parts but now such luck. Now I'm close to firing it up and the little things are getting me. Thanks in advance for any and all help.

    Red and green lines do need to be fixed ,you can fix them with small vacuum tube rubber , green to EGR , red to fuel regulator , the red vacuum on regulator gives fuel

    Thanks for info on that. That was a real concern cause I had no idea where they went from that cluster by the front fender.

    I've got 4 long bolts, 2 that have washers and 2 that are flanged all the same length. That's my issue the ones with washers are apparently to long for some but just cant right combo to get it bolted down. Of course this was before I saw EGR tube

    throttle body bolted to intake with studs
    Could be the studs are to long or they are backed out to far
    You need them equal length to get a nut ,washer , lock washer and throttle body on

    these are just really long bolts 2 with flanged ends and 2 with washers. I wish it was studs it would be so much easier.

    To loosen or tighten a stud
    put 2 nuts on stud tighten the nuts on each other tight
    Turn the out side nut in to screw it in
    Or turn outside nut outward to loosen
    Note nuts must be center of stud

    I don't have any studs on the intake throttle body. I just have long
    There are no studs in the intake for throttle body. Just like your pics I have long bolts. Two are bolts with washers and two that are flanged. Cant figure out what goes where cause didn't take the deal a apart.

    Ah, mismatched hardware. That is a pain and I, for one, used “all thread” (threaded rod) to made my own intake studs and TB studs back when I had my 5.0. It was a fairly straightforward affair with the only real headache being the TB adaptor elbow.

    Sad thing is they swear its the stock bolts but I cant for the life of me figure out pattern. I'm ordering new EGR exhaust tube to cover damaged tube. Always the little things that hold things up.

    Unless you need it for emissions testing or state inspection you *can* delete the EGR and have a tuner turn the function off in the ECU.

    You’d need a Moates or SCT chip to do so.

    Sorry about that mix up
    Did not realize hardware was wrong . Not knowing where the bolts go or how they go
    Is a pain especially when you are not removing them and it's new to you

    green usually is egr solenoid to the valve, red ones are usually constant vacuum. egr solenoid, smog (if that still has tab/tad solenoids on the pass fender like my wifes 86gt), fuel regulator, the evap canister inside the wheel liner in the back, PCV, and the line for the brake booster/ a/c system. I can't think of anything else vacuum.

    I just happen to have one of the moates chips with that feature already turned off and a little timing added. It was done when I threw a b303 cam in and it ran like a champ. If your in an area that doesn’t do emissions like that and you want the chip let me know. I won’t need it anymore.

    Thanks for offer. Once I get motor running and make sure there are no underlying issues with it I will check with my local garage that does my inspections and see what I can get away with. I think everything here in NC is safety inspection no emissions.
