I found a 3.0 Vulcan :icon_bounceblue:motor to replace the seized one in my 99, donor car is a 2001 Taurus with 62k. I'm already aware of the head gaskets and such but I have a question. Is the plastic upper intake in the Taurus a direct replacement for the aluminum oon currently on my truck? I would like to swap if they are, the plastic one just looks "cleaner", I like it better I suppose.

Thanks,
Jason :icon_bounceblue:

The Taurus intake should be very similar to the plastic intakes they put on Ranger 3.0's about that time, if not identical. People have done that conversion before. If I recall, there were some slight modifications required, like retapping the bolt holes or something.

It's cheap enough, I'll pick it up and see if it works.
