How difficult would it be to make one? I've made a intake out of elbows from autozone and 3" exhaust pipe for one of my cars. I primed and paint the exhaust pipe. The next one will be out of black abs(?) pipe. Didn't cost over $30.

just place the cone in the right spot...dont make the piping too long or too short...you should be good
just know that intake does nothing without stepped up exhaust. and depending on how much extra air you are taking on you might wann step up your injectors

Ok.. well that's different. Unless you come up with some way of making a flange for the iac your out of luck. I wonder if a later model intake would have a different setup.

Hey man I just picked up an '85 with the 2.3l if I figure out some sort of cold air for it I'll let you know, and if you figure anything out could you fill me in? Thanks

I would but the gas prices are killing me with the other 2 trucks so this 4cyl should help me out with that.

Anyway for the cold air and the problem with the IAC position I may have found a solution to the problem, the 4cyl mustangs have the IAC on the throttle body so if that bolts up to the upper intake on the ranger you could just extend the wiring to the IAC and make the intake. I have a 4cyl mustang thats getting converted to a 5.0 so I'm going to take the throttle body and try it, if it works I'll post it up hopfully with pics.

I just want to know if it's possible to fit the 95 throttle body, so I won't have to go through the trouble of making a new intake. If it doesn't then I'll just go ahead and try to make my own intake. I just want to avoid the hassle if I can.
