On the expo...I think you'll be forced to used your existing intake manifold. I don't know exactly what year Ford redesigned the SOHC's intake....early Expo SOHC's had an inefficient intake design on them. It's pretty obvious what intake is on it.....the engine cover is looooong. lol. I know for sure 01+ intakes (regardless of expo or ranger) are all the same and the newer style.

haha, if my motor blows, i'll put a V8 in it, if my front end takes a dump, I'll SAS. if both happen at the same time, I'll be in a world of hurt.
