Replaces Commonly Cracked Intake Manifold With Improved, Metal Crossover Version
Metal Water Transfer
What's in the Box
(1) Intake Manifold
Direct Replacement Intake
This is the stock replacement intake manifold for the 1996-98 Mustang GT 4.6L 2V. It features the improved, aluminum water transfer to prevent the deterioration that occurs on factory intakes with water transfers. Includes thermostat, and all gaskets and O-rings needed for installation.
Requires modification of your existing alternator bracket. Grinding around the perimeter for clearance and enlarging/elongating the bolt holes.
You can reuse your stock thermostat housing if you use washers to compensate for the large hoes in the housing, or you can purchase LRS-8592E as a direct fit piece.
Had a problem with an order/quality issue. I put up a review stating so, and was contacted by Mike Linley, who was soooo nice and sooo professional, I almost felt bad about my review !! I felt the review was necessary because of bad welds/paint. Mike explained that they had a particular issue with that supplier and they had changed suppliers because of it. I must have mistakenly got an old set. (upper/lower Control arms-Foxbody). Mike asked a few questions, and was Sending me an updated replacement set while we were on the phone.!!! This is what I wish all Vendors would do; no arguments, no blame, no B.S. !! This is why LateModel stands out as an upstanding company, and backs up their products with AWESOME Customer service. Very rare in this day and age, and because of this I will be a customer for life, and will spread the good word ! Great to know some honest and Classy companies still operate in the good ol' USA. Thanks LateModel, and Thanks Mike !!! I look forward to seeing the New LCA'S and will review them too...You guys did the right thing and should and I'm overly impressed!
