Ive been waiting for this intake for years. Has anyone used it. What fuel rails and ECU are needed? Wire harness ect?

Thanks

That's cool! I would think you would use the harness/computer from a 89-93 Mustang. The 87-88 are speed density so make sure to use a MAF type harness/ computer from a 89-93. Painless and Ford Racing sell drop in harnesses, but I would hit the junk yards and try to find a car you can yank everything out of. You need the processor harness, engine harness and o2 sensor harness. The optimal computer would be the A9L. Professional Products sells a good fuel rail kit.

Here's a short list of what you'll need:
processor
wire harnesses
aftermarket MAF housing (C&L or Pro-M)
aftermarket throttle body 80-90mm
injectors- probably 36-42 lb injectors
fuel rails/line/fittings
o2 sensors/ weld in bungs
a couple of engine sensors. Probably air charge temp (ACT) and engine coolant temp. They should just screw into the lower intake.

The distributor will be interesting. I'll look into options. I just don't know how the EEC-IV type computer will react if you're not using it to fire a distributor.

Then there's the fuel system. The basic way would be to sump the back of the tank and run a 8 and 6 line for supply/return. I'm going to do a fuel hat type setup with internal baffles on mine. some day.

Here's a few places to look for doing the swap using 5.0 parts

That went over my head, but I couldn't tell if it was a wrench or a joke.Undecided

Ah very cool. I think most of the 7.5 injected distributors use a remote mounted TFI module, but that's easy enough to accommodate. Thanks for the heads up.

Im running a 5.0 EFI motor in my car with a A9p computer with stock fuel rails and 24ib injectors with matching maf and my distributor is a MSD pro billet with the tfi. my setup runs hella good aside from some minor idle and fuel issues

I actually had a stroked (and supercharged) Windsor in my '95 GT and I am in the middle of building a 415 Windsor for my '68 coupe. They both have/had Trick Flow intakes. On my '95, I used Aeromotive fuel rails. They worked great but the bottom of the driver side hit the top of the rail a little so I had to double up on the gasket between the upper and lower. I spoke with Trick Flow and they said that wouldn't happen with their own fuel rails.
For the ECU, I used a A9L and I purchased the 5.0L harness from Ford. Not cheap but it's new. I hate buying other peoples problems. I prefer the Pro-M MAF and Accufab throttle bodies (they've always worked well for me- Just a preference). When you figure out what size throttle body you're going to use, make sure you at least use the same size MAF if not one size bigger. As for your MAF, make sure it's calibrated to whatever fuel injectors you use. If you're going with a Windsor that has a hydraulic roller cam, you can use a distributer from a '95 ford truck.

Are you using the long runner (lower profile) intake or the box style intake?

Is it for street or race?? I find a ported Exploder cast GT-40 intake to be just about the best torque building intake(street) I used a 70mm throttle body and a 75mm MAF, 24 lb inj. to feed a bored 5.0, AFR185 heads Comp Cam XE270, JBA midlength headers, with a "cleaned up" cast GT-40.
When I moved up to a 331 Stroker, I had T-Moss port the GT-40 lower used a, 75mm TB, Lunati 272 VooDoo cam and 30lb injectors. It's a Beast!
Which ever intake, (Trick Flow is a good looking intake) you choose, match your MAF/TB/Cam/heads & rear gears combo, so that they all work together. Taking a stock roller 5.0 and using a big High flow intake, 90mm TB & MAF w/42 lb inj. isnt going to work well. Especially on the street. Camed right you may have peak HP, though no bottom end. Peaky even for the track.
Sooo what combo are you looking at?? To do what with?? It' always fun to compare combos with others.

Its for a 351C in my 1974 Falcon. Not looking to race just smooth reliable power and efficiency. Engine in a 2V and will run an AOD trans.
