Did anyone else having this failed hose have a problem with the idle being too high or get a lean code? It took me a while before I realized what was causing all of that.

This job is a serious PITA. I wish I'd have done what warneej did--I sure don't feel good about the new Ford piece I put back on there.

There's no telling what all got sucked up by that damned crack. My intake manifold was all gunked up. The tumble flaps were pretty caked too. It took a while to clean it all up. Hope there's no long term damage.

I highly recommend putting something sticky/gooey on your socket--a dab of grease should do it--when reinstalling bolts. I dropped one and it took a while to figure out which bottomless pit the thing disappeared down!

I hope the next time I have to do this, I'll remember what I did before. ;)
Don't have the ZX3 anymore--now it's an 04 ZTW 2.3 K&N intake, 2.5" Trubendz do-it-yourself kit with 4" Magnapak muffler. Xcal3 from Focus Sport. Lot's of dirt and no time to bother with it! Wagon--The Thinking Man's SUV.
