    So I got my 96 Gt a month ago have been pretty busy with work I finally got a chance to work on it a little been doing allot of reading on the forum and I have a question on the heads how do I tell npi from pi heads I'm only asking cause the more I work on the car I wonder how much has been done i have long tube headers with off road x pipe the intake has the aluminum crossover in the front so I don't know if just that has been changed or more thanks for any input

    Im not sure of any outward differences in the heads, but if you pull your intake off you will be able to tell pretty easily:

    The head on the left with the rounded port is an NPI, the square port on the right is a PI.

    Take a mirror and check for the part # on passenger head towards the front above the manifold. Should see either F5-- or XL--
