Just to add, deleting the egr whether by a tune or pulling it off & adding a plate to cover the hole, will make a difference w/ all that crap in the intake manifold & you wouldn't have to deal w/ a sticky TB ever so often.

But once you get it rolling it should go pretty good. A tune for the imrc delete would do wonders. Checkout a 23 powered escape's= no imrc at all. For some reason Ford did not use imrc on the escape's. Why= I have know idea. IDK if you can use a 23 manifold on a 20.

finally got to a junkyard today for a manifold and a fuel pressure sensor. had to do a little work to get the manifold off after a front end crash on the doner car, only to find out that one had the same tumble flap problem. fps was good and helped my car out a lot.

A new one is 'bout $200.00. Have you thought of a 23 Escape manifold & a tune?

A tune will help a good bit

You'll need a custom tune w/ a imrc delete viva a Escape manifold since they don't use the imrc system.
