Also, will a 2000 zetec intake manifold give me better mpg? I have seen the HP gains, I've been searching old threads about it for the last 30 minutes or so. But nowhere does it mention MPG. I am assuming that since its smooth, I may get a bit more. I'm only asking because my friend may sell me one. My biggest concern is that I don't want to lose any MPG. lol

Oh weird, I didn't even know they changed it. Probably because they came out with the SVT. Ford likes to do that. With the Foxbody, they had 225 stock, then in 93 when the released the Cobra it had 235, and the same 5.0 suddenly only had 205 hp.

That's what I'm thinking. Probably has to do with emissions shenanigans. lol Who knows. I will be buying that Sunday, and FX is having a meet at the local Pull a part. I need a part for my passenger door, so I can actually use it... lol

Oh and I'm dropping my car off at a shop tomorrow.... so sad... haven't ever done that before. Well for something I could change myself. Ive gone to the shop for alignments and new tires, that's it. I'm going to have them tell me whats going on with the front end in my car. If its not an expensive fix, I'll just have them fix it to save me the time. I'll tell you guys how it goes tomorrow.
