There are a lot of threads about the ebay intake manifold. It's a cossie knock off. Same exact part, just crappy quality. They require work by cleaning the inside of the runners and some people have said that their 'top plate' doesn't line up. Some people have said that theirs turned out pretty good after all the prep work.

The throttle body... um, I don't know what to say. 90 f'n MM!! That's way over-kill. And anything universal won't work on our cars. Keep away from that unless you like playing the money exchange game.

Same as this one but cheaper price... http://www.ebay.com/itm/NEW-FORD-FOC...0a632f&vxp=mtr


Not $269, but 228.99 so $40 less


Or buy the real deal for 800$

http://www.ebay.com/itm/Cosworth-Int...b69fa8&vxp=mtr

or $665

$230 isnt bad, I am getting it for Xmas, going to dremmil it smooth and put it in, you do need a Tune with it, so if you do not have a Toms Tune for $430 then stay clear of it lol

When i install my Ebay IM, it threw my tune off really bad. My biggest issue was that the holes for the head where of a little. I jsut went up a dril bit size. Fix the issue.
