    8. Edelbrock Intake Install

    Here is the instructions with the correct pictures. Working with Hillie16 to get pictures to show up in this thread.

    http://pomoforacing.com/tech/IntakeInstall.pdf

    94-95 Edelbrock Performer 5.0 Upper and Lower Intake Manifold Install
    By Hillie16

    Getting started

    Changing the intake manifold on a 5.0 appears to be a daunting task, and I approached it with some trepidation, but this install ends up being fairly easy. As long as you are careful, and clearly mark, record, or can easily remember where each electrical connection, vacuum line, nut and bolt goes as you remove them, it should be very easy to do. Nothing relocates very far from the original position on the stock intake. It must be noted though, that the Edelbrock manifolds have holes that are not occupied by anything on the stock intake, and must filled with plugs. The lower manifold has 3 (Fig 1),

    [​IMG]

    the upper manifold also has 3 (Fig 2).

    [​IMG]

    All the proper plugs were not included with my kit. Also the vacuum fittings included with the manifold were not the correct size. This may have been just an oversight with mine only, I wouldn't expect that as a usual practice from Edelbrock. Also make sure you have a new thermostat gasket, and unless it was already done recently, I would suggest picking up a 180 degree thermostat. I also replaced the plugs, wires, and cap & rotor. Removing the distibutor is not necessary, but I highly recommend it, as the lower manifold will be MUCH easier to remove and install. You'll also need a torque wrench to torque the lower manifold bolts to the proper specs. You'll need a good assortment of sockets, extensions, hex wrenches, and open end wrenches to reach all the bolts as well. Have plenty of antifreeze on hand, and after the install is complete, an oil change is recommended. Also a bottle of pipe dope is recommended. Also the stock strut tower brace WILL NOT clear this intake. I bought the Steeda chrome-oly brace available from www.partshopper.com as a replacement...most aftermarket strut tower braces will clear the aftermarket intakes.

    Removal

    First, disconnect your negative battery terminal. Then drain the coolant system. The engine MUST BE COOL when you do this. I parked mine overnight,and drained it in the morning. Remove the radiator cap. Then, open the plug on the radiator, on the bottom on the passenger side. There are also to hex drain plugs in the block. The passenger side plug is easiest to get to, it's right below the #1 spark plug. I could only get one out, the other started to strip out. I would highly advise removing one of the plugs in the block, as I had NO coolant left in the manifolds when I removed them, thus none to clean out of the valley. Make sure screw the plug back in. Remove the strut tower brace. Next disconnect the accelerator cables (Fig 3A) and remove the accelerator cable bracket (Fig 3C). Remove the bolts attaching the EGR to the intake (Fig 3B).

    [​IMG]

    Next go disconnect all vacuum lines and electrical connections. There are 3 vacuum lines that connect to the upper manifold, two of which are on the underside of the runners, they may be easier to remove after unbolting the upper intake. (Fig 4) There is a fitting on the upper manifold that will be save to be placed on the Edelbrock upper. (Fig 4A).

    [​IMG]

    If you look at front of the fuel rail on the passenger side, you'll see a black cap. pull the cap off to reveal a schrader valve. Have a big rag or towel handy, and use this valve to relieve the pressure in the fuel system. Now you should be ready to remove the upper intake. Remove the bolts attaching the throttle body to the intake. There are two bolts under the "5.0 HO" plate on top of the stock intake. Remove the plate, then remove all the bolts on the upper intake. Carefully remove the upper intake. Using a rag or towel, (an old T-shirt works good) cover the ports in the lower manifold, so no debris, nuts or bolts can find their way in there(Fig 5).

    Now you are ready to remove the fuel rails and injectors. You DO NOT need to disconnect the fuel lines! First unplug the electrical connecters to each fuel injector (Fig 5)

    [​IMG]

    Remove the 2 bolts on each side holding the fuel rails onto the lower manifold. Now carefully lift on the fuel rails. You can either lift the rails and the injectors out as an assembly, or detach the rails from the injectors, and remove each injector seperately. Lift the fuel rails over to the passenger side out of the way of the lower manifold.

    If you do not want to remove the distributor, it is not completely necessary but I HIGHLY recommend it, as the lower manifold will be VERY difficult to remove, and even more difficult to install the new lower. It is also very easy to remove the distributor. Using masking tape, mark each spark plug wire according to it's correct cylinder (Fig 6).

    [​IMG]

    Note the raised numeral "1" on the distributor cap. This indicates the plug wires which goes to the #1 cylinder and can also serve as a marker in relation to the cap clamps to replace the cap in the correct position. Remove the cap, and mark the position of the rotor inside the cap, and the base of the distributor in relation to the block. Remove the distributor hold down clamp. Now CAREFULLY lift the distributor out of the engine, being careful not to turn the shaft. DO NOT TURN THE ENGINE WHILE THE DISTRIBUTOR IS OUT OR THE REFERENCE POINTS WILL BE USELESS!

    For the next step, you need to disconnect all the coolant hoses, including removing the fitting behind the thermostat housing. Now remove the thermostat housing. Remove the PCV valve from the rear of the lower manifold. Now remove all the bolts for the lower intake manifold 1/4 turn at a time til you can remove them by hand. Make sure there is nothing else connected to the lower manifold. Now lift the lower manifold out of place. Using paper towels or rags, stuff the intake ports so that no debris from the gaskets will fall into the intake ports on the heads(Fig 7).

    [​IMG]

    Be very careful doing this, you don't want to lose the towels in the ports...it will be a lot of work to get them out. Clean the mating surfaces, as clean as possible so that you will get a good seal. Clean any debris left over out of the valley.

    Installation

    Before putting the Edelbrock lower in, make sure the proper plugs are in place as described at the beggining of the article. Remove the coolant temperature sensor from the stock lower and put it in the new piece. Remove the rubber seal for the PCV valve from the stock lower and put it in place in the Edelbrock lower. Also make sure the PCV baffle is placed in the bottom of the lower manifold using the pins provided.

    Now make sure you clean the gasket surfaces very good, I used a soft bristle nylon brush attachment for the drill to do it, I also layed a towel in the valley to avoid any pieces of leftover gasket in the valley. Lift the rubber endcaps on the front and back of the block and throw those things in the garbage along with the cork end gaskets included with the gasket set. USE FEL-PRO GASKETS for the best seal but either way the end pieces included are worthless.. Also use the black RTV sealant. My method was to put a thin layer of the sealant on the mating surface of the head, using my finger to smear it around. I made it a bit thicker around the coolant ports. Then lay the gasket down. Run a thick bead on the front and back mating areas on the block, making a THICK blob of sealant where the head and block meet at the corners. Also make a thin layer on the mating surfaces of the lower manifold.

    Now you will need help, someone else to hold everything out of the way to lower the manifold into place. you want this to be as close to perfectly in place as possible to keep the gaskets in place. Now put the bolts in, torque them down in the correct order (Fig 8).

    [​IMG]

    The specs call for 15-18 ft-lbs of torque. I started at 10 ft-lbs, and worked up in 2 lb increments, til I got to 18 making sure to do so in the correct order. Now cover the ports in the new lower with a rag, and let the lower manifold sealant cure overnight, 24 hours. Check each of the bolts again for proper torque.

    Now screw the the coolant fitting in behind the area where the thermostat housing goes (Fig 9).

    [​IMG]

    MAKE SURE this fitting is going in straight. I crossthreaded this hole and it took three days to find the correct tap to fix this problem (which is 1/2 inch pipe thread BTW)

    Using a very thin coat of KY Jelly, lubricate the O-rings on each injector. The easiest way I found to install the fuel injectors is to install each injector one at a time and then place the rails onto the injectors. make sure everything snaps into place. Plug each electrical injector connection back into place. Screw each provided stud into it's proper place in the lower manifold (Fig 10).

    [​IMG]

    Place the PCV valve into it's hole. Reattach the thermostat housing, using a new gasket and preferably a new thermostat. Reconnect all the coolant lines.

    Now, using the marks you made when you removed it, drop the distributor back into place, making sure your lines line up perfectly. If you don't line them up, the timing will be off. Bolt it back down using the original clamp. Refer to the wiring diagram

    Make sure that you have the correct fittings in place in the upper intake. Place the upper to lower gasket in place, dry, not with sealant. This gasket stays dry. Once again, you
    will need some help, have someone hold up the upper intake, as you attach the vacuum lines to the correct fittings. Gently lower the upper manifold into place. Thread all the nuts onto the studs and tighten them snugly, but be careful not to overtighten them. You'll need an open end wrench to tighten the bolt in the center of the manifold, this is time consuming, but make sure the bolt is tightened well (Fig 11).

    [​IMG]

    Now attach the plenum cover. Again leave the gasket dry, this gasket also does not use sealant. Again, snug these hex head bolts tightly, but do not overtighten them (Fig 12).

    [​IMG]

    Before bolting on the throttle body adapter you need to drill out the lower right corner bolt hole to 11/32, this bolt will thread into the adapter itself from the back of the intake flange (Fig 13).

    [​IMG]

    Bolt the EGR to the adapter, and the adapter onto the upper intake, this gasket is also dry as is the EGR gasket. There is a fitting left on the stock upper intake that needs to be screwed on the throttle body adapter (Fig 14).

    [​IMG]

    Reattach the vacuum lines to this fitting, the photo shows this fitting while still on the stock intake, but it reconnects the same (Fig 15).

    [​IMG]

    One line needs extended, but the adapter kit includes the extension. Bolt the accelerator cable bracket onto the adapter. Again, use a dry gasket, and bolt the throttle body onto the adapter. Connect the accelerator cables to the brackets. Make sure all electrical connections to throttle body etc. are reconnected. Bolt the new strut tower brace (if you have one) in place. Refill your coolant system. Change the oil. Now let the engine run and check for leaks. Check the back of the intake for oil leaks as this is the usual spot. Now just keep an eye on it for the next few weeks for leaks.

    9. Window lift bushing install.
    By: VibrantRedGT (Joe)

    That window not going all the way up or making clicking noises? It's not the motor but the plastic bushings inside the motor. Here is a step by step to help fix the problem.

    1. Pop off the plastic cover. Start from the top with your fingers and pull up. Remove the two gold phillips screws holding the switches.

    2. Remove the phillips screws.

    3. Pull the tab before the speaker out with some pliers.

    4. Remove the four phillips speaker screws. You won't have to disconnect the speaker. The speaker magnet will catch on some metal.

    5. Disconnect the window motor connector. Now work the window motor side through the speaker hole.

    6. There are three 8MM bolts holding the window motor in place. Before removing them put a screw driver in the window tract. Some say the window will fall it you don't. Mine did not but do it for safety precautions. Now put your arm through the speaker hole and use your other hand to remove the bolts. The window lift will fall right out now.

    7. Bring it to a work bench. I had to drill the rivet off to get to the gear.
    [​IMG]

    8. Remove the cover with a screw driver and remove the gear assembly. WARNING-Once you pull the Steel gear from the plastic gear it will be really difficult to put back. It's the point of no return. As you can see below the plastic tabs are OK on this one.

    [​IMG]

    9. Pictured below is when the stock plastic tabs are completely chewed up. Clean all the bushing material up.

    [​IMG]

    10. Remove the gear ring. This will be a pain. I used to small nails. Stick in the holes and pull out. You will figure you own way when you get there.

    11. At this point you can just purchase an entire gear kit from Cardone (check your local Auto Parts Store). Part number is 42-91 and costs around $20 (easier way). There is no assembly required with this route. Also some auto parts stores sell just the bushings in the HELP section. Or you can go to the dealer and get plastic bushings like I'm installing here below for $13.

    [​IMG]

    12. Have patience when putting the new plastic bushings in. You have to get the steel gear in place while the plastic bushing are in that triangle. It will take some time if this is your first rodeo.

    13. Reverse the process:
    Put the window lift assembly back in the window lift motor, use new screws for the cover (I drilled out the rivets then used new 6MM screws on the cover), clean your hands, reinstall the window lift motor inside the speaker grill, when you get the window lift in place now hand tighten the 3-8MM bolts, now snug them down with your ratchet. Test the motor before reinstalling the door panel. If it passes then go ahead and put on the door panel.

    *NOTE-If the other door has the same issue make the choice now that you'll either buy an entire window lift motor or do the bushing change like you just performed.

    11. Stud Mount Rocker Arm Adjustment Instructions
    1. Remove the valve covers, and pick a cylinder you are going to set the pre-load on. Only do one cylinder at a time.

    2. Rotate the engine in its normal direction of rotation (clockwise) and watch the exhaust valve on that particular cylinder. When the exhaust valve begins to open, stop and adjust that cylinder's intake rocker arm.

    3. To adjust, back off the intake rocker arm adjusting nut and remove any tension from the push rod. Wait a minute or two for that hydraulic lifter to return to a neutral position. The spring inside the lifter will move the push rod seat up against the retaining lock, if you give it time to do so.

    4. Twist the intake push rod with your fingers while tightening down the rocker arm. When you feel a slight resistance to the turning of the push rod, you are at "Zero Lash". Turn the adjusting nut down one half to three-quarters of a turn from that point for street applications. Use 1/8 to 1/4 turn for race applications. Lock the adjuster into position. The intake is now adjusted properly.

    5. Continue to turn the engine, watching that same intake valve/rocker you just set. It will go to full open and then begin to close. When it is almost closed, stop and adjust the exhaust rocker arm on that particular cylinder. Loosen the exhaust rocker arm and follow the same procedure described before in steps 3 and 4 to adjust this rocker arm.

    6. Both valves on this cylinder are now adjusted, and you can move on to your next cylinder and follow the same procedure again.

    There may be some initial valvetrain noise when the engine is first fired up but once oil pressure has stabilized and the engine heats up, it should quiet right down to a normal level.

    Remember that some racier camshafts will have a mechanical sound to them and will not be a silent as factory units.

    12. COOLING (EDIT- 12-21-11, Pictures Not Fixed Yet)
    Have cooling issues? The stock EEC turns the high speed fan on at 208 Degrees. The stock radiator is less than 3/4 inches thick. These two issues cause the 94-95's to run hot. Ford did this for emissions purposes. This however is bad for performance.

    To correct this you must get a hold of your cooling fan. Either have it turned on when the key is on OR have a switch to turn it on.

    Here is the keys to lower temps:
    180 Thermostat
    Fluidyne or equivalent Radiator
    70% Water / 30% Coolant
    Fan on HIGH

    Fan Switch

    14. Cobra Specs
    Here is a list of items that are unique to the 94-95 Cobra vs the GT of the same years.

    Engine / Tranny

    The Cobra engine is rated at 240bhp from the factory campared to the GT's 215bhp and was only available with a 5 speed and 3.08 rear end gears.

    Cobra Emblems on Front Fenders (no 5.0L emblems)
    "Crystal" (clear) headlights)
    Round Cobra Specific Foglights

    Other info:

    The 94-95 Cobra (and GT) came with a 60mm throttlebody, not the 65mm alot of people believe it to have. The 93 cobras came with a 65mm.
    Although the 94-95 Cobra came with 24lb injectors it still uses the same MAF (mass airflow meter 70MM) as the GT. The Cobra specific computer compensates for the 24lb injectors.

    Many people say the Cobra came with underdriven pulleys it only has a Cobra specific underdriven waterpump pulley (slightly smaller than GT). Even if they are slightly underdriven they are nowhere near the same as real aftermarket underdrive pulleys.

    94-95 Cobra trivia information (posted on the SCOA bulletin board posted by "Dano" from the SVT cobra recognition guide)

    1. '94 was the first year of the front facing Cobra snakes!
    2. These two years were the only ones to have the "Crab Claw" spoiler, with built-in LED brake light! (The GT's stop lamp was mounted on the rear decklid)
    3. Only three colors were offered:
    a. Rio Red Tinted Clearcoat
    b. Crystal White
    c. Black Clearcoat
    4. The '94 Indianapolis 500's official pace cars were GT's converted to Cobra specifications. They were five converts, with a four-speed AOD automatic trans! The actual "Pace Car" was driven by Parnelli Jones. 1,000 of these replicas were built, for sale to the public! If you have a '94 convert, it's an Indy 500 replica, with all the special badges & markings, and it's red!
    5. The easiest way to tell a '94 from a '95:
    a. The '95 has an SVT badge on the trunk lid.
    b. The '95 has a vertical flair attached to the front of the rocker panel extension.
    6. ALL '94 Cobra converts were Rio Red Indy Pace Car replicas.
    7. ALL '95 converts were black.
    8. The '94 convert tops were saddle color, and the '95 convert tops were black. No other color combinations were available!
    9. '94 and '95's converts came with saddle interior.

    16. Converting to a FOX style throttle body & Removing Smog Equipment (EDIT 12-21-11, Pictures Not Fixed Yet)
    by GTJake

    How To Convert To a Fox Style Throttle Body & Removing Smog Equipment

    Removing your smog equipment on 94-95's.
    http://Please do not link to external forums//techarticles/Smog2.pdf

    First you need to gather the swap parts. The easiest way is to find someone that is parting out an 87-93 Fox body or just go to the junkyard. You can also find a lot of these parts on Ford Cown Vics, Lincoln Mark VIII’s and 5.0 Cougars and T-Birds.

    Here’s the parts you need

    • Fox throttle Body
    • Fox EGR delete plate or EGR spacer
    -EGR delete plate (http://uprproducts.com/shopping/shopexd.asp?id=383)
    • Fox Throttle Cable Bracket
    • Fox Throttle Cable
    • Fox TPS connector
    -Get both ends of the TPS connector if you want to be able to unclip the TPS easily.
    • Fox IAC

    Here’s a pic of all the parts needed. Thanks for all the pics RIO5.0 (Andy)!



    *Most of these procedures are described in good detail in a Haynes manual, but I’ll do my best.*


    First thing you need to do is take out the stock throttle cable. Get under the dash and look up at the top of the gas pedal and you’ll see that the throttle cable is just pinched into place into the fork on top of the gas pedal. Just take a screw driver and pop that out.

    Then look at the firewall where the throttle cable goes in and you’ll see two bolts. Remove those and undo the throttle connections at the SN-95 throttle body. Remove the throttle cable.

    Install the fox throttle cable the same way you removed the SN-95 throttle cable. Where it bolts to the firewall you will only be able to use one bolt hole, unless you drill another. I’m using one and there are no problems with it.

    Remove the SN-95 throttle body from the upper intake and disconnect the stock TPS and IAC sensors. Remove the elbow adapter.

    This is a picture of the throttle cable bracket bolted to an EGR delete spacer.


    You can get four studs from the hardware store and screw them into the upper intake. The studs use will vary in length depending on if you’re using an EGR spacer or just the delete plate. They should be ¼”x18thdx. Here’s a pic.


    Here you can see how everything hooks up. The throttle cable connects to the throttle body by popping onto the ball on the bottom.


    In this pic you can see the TPS sensor. The bottom connector is the part that gets wired to your existing TPS wires.

    What you want to do is cut the stock TPS connector off exposing three wires. There should be a gray wire with a red stripe, a gray wire with a white stripe and a brown wire with a white stripe. The fox TPS connector (the bottom connector in the picture) will have three wires also. A green, orange, and black wire. Here’s is how you want to wire them together:

    Green wire – Gray w/white stripe
    Black wire – Gray w/red stripe
    Orange wire – Brown w/white stripe

    Use some wire connectors to splice them together and cover them in electrical tape.


    Now you’ll want to go ahead a bolt up the IAC sensor which is in this pic. Make sure you use a gasket between it and the throttle body, the stock gasket works fine.


    Bolt it up in that same orientation as shown in the pic to the throttle body otherwise it won’t idle. You can use you stock plug from the SN-95, no wires need to be spliced to connect this sensor.

    Now put the EGR spacer or EGR delete plate with the throttle cable bracket connected to it on the upper intake. See pic.


    Now put the throttle body on. Make sure you’re using gaskets between the upper/EGR spacer/and Throttle body.

    Now connect the TPS sensor that you have. It should bolt to the top of the throttle body and have a little connector at the end that will plug into the other connector that you already wired into your existing TPS wires. Here’s a pic of how it should be set up.


    Now before you bolt the TPS sensor down to the throttle body you are going to have to check TPS voltage. You can do this with a voltmeter that you can pick up at any auto parts store. A digital one makes it easier. Turn the key on, but don’t have the engine running. Connect the black voltmeter wire to the black wire on the TPS and the red voltmeter wire to the green wire on the TPS. Move the TPS until you get a reading around .985-.989. The TPS moves a little bit on top of the throttle body when it's not fully tightened down. Once you reach your desired TPS voltage (i.e .987) then you tighten the screws down and it locks the TPS in place settting the voltage.
    This is just a suggested voltage. There are many opinions on this and you can research for yourself what would be the voltage you would like to use.

    Once you get the proper voltage, tighten the TPS down.

    Connect the two TPS plugs. Connect the IAC plugs. Bolt the throttle body down. Connect your fox throttle body style intake tract. Make sure you have the IAT sensor in and the MAF plugged in.

    Here's what it should look like when your all done.

    18. Bolt and Torque Guide.

    Ford Engine Bolt Torque Chart

    Bolt Torque Spec Chart for Ford Engines

    These specs are for stock-type bolts with light engine oil applied to the threads and the underside of the bolt head. Moly and other lubes offer reduced friction and increased bolt tension, which will affect the torque figure. If you use after-market performance bolts like ARP’s, you should follow the recommended torque specifications.
