Sweet, I just found this among the old unread posts I've been ignoring. I'm glad to see another Motorcraft replaced. I'm thinking about putting that old Clifford Intake together with a Q-Jet eventually. If I decide against it maybe that intake will end up in your Eagle eventually.

lol, I had forgotten about this thread, I guess I should mention, I'm fairly satisfied with this swap, due to the multiple adapters, and raising the carb to stupid high elevation, it it not as responsive as it should be (comparing to the jeep which has a proper 4bbl intake). Although, it has proven itself to be a truly reliable setup as far as just cruising goes, decent milage, and just nice feel around town (no weird bobbles on light throttle, just smooth). Oh and once the r's are up, punching it, actually means passing slower traffic, lol.

^^^^^ is the same thing im getting with the 1405 edelbrock on my wagon! if I had the 4bbl intake, to keep the carb lower and all, it would probably be better, but it is smooth and runs great. haven't gotten mpg numbers yet tho. (I should do that shouldn't I?)

My numbers range in the 20-23 mpg depending on how I drive it, lol.

I need to get another temp registration to put in the window. they are good for 3 weeks here, and drive it to work a few times. 100 miles round trip for several days will either make me broke, or surprise me. (or somewhere in between.) id LOVE to see 20's out of it. honeybadger is getting 25 or so mpg now with the 2150 carb'd 4.0. LOVING THAT!
