    Think i've traced where my coolant leak is coming from but still need to pressure test it for sure, but is it a case of just replacing the thermostat housing ? It's the black plastic bit that is cracked, is that part of the thermostat housing when ordering one ? Also where is the best place to order from ? It's a 2000 Mustang GT, many thanks

    I've got a dorman intake sitting in my garage with the aluminum crossover. The power compared to ford racing manifold is controversial, however I'd let it go for a good price if you want to get it back on the road quickly. PM me if interested

    If its leaking from the top could be the internal o ring is missing.... I had my intake off and it rolled under the truck with out me noticing..... boom leakage
