I am installing an Offenhouser intake manifold on a Ford inline-6

I am installing an Offenhouser intake manifold on my Ford inline six cylander motor. The intake/exhaust is a split design(2 piece). How do you install this properly? Do I bolt it to the head, and then tighten the upper/lower manifolds together, or tighten them together and then bolt to the head? It looks like I need to bolt to head, and then tighten both halves together, in order to get a good seal on the head.

Cheapest Real Power Gain For a Jeep with the 4.0 L6

Hello. If you're anything like me, you're always looking to squeeze a little bit more power out of your ride. Whether it be for racing, comfort, or even safety, more power is always better, especially without sacrificing fuel economy, which we all know is a huge factor.

I have a power improvement secret for all Jeep vehicles prior to 1999 (some up to 06.)

If you replace your factory intake manifold with one from a newer Jeep, bam! you get more power. Here are the specifics:

In 1998, when the standards for fuel efficiency were increasing, and the Grand Cherokee was about to debut its newest generation, something had to be done with the 4.0 inline six cylinder that Jeep used across its lineup. It was not going to meet EPA regulations without some tweakage. So, one of the major points of change was the intake manifold.

This is an actual image from my install. The top intake manifold is off of a 2002 Jeep Grand Cherokee with the 4.0. It has been painted with high-heat black. The bottom one is off of my 1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee with the 4.0. Notice the difference in design. The newer manifold is less angular, allowing more air to enter the engine without getting caught up in the manifold. This free flowing design helps free up a few hidden horsepower. For what I paid ($50,) and the increase I felt (upwards of 8hp,) this is definitely the most cost effective, and little known about modification for increasing power in your Jeep 4.0.

What is the smog equipment part between the carburetor and intake manifold on a 1982 Ford Fairmont Futura straight six engine called?

I believe your talkng about an exhaust gas recirculation (EGR) plate. This is a ported plate that allow exaust gasses to be recirculated back into the intake stream. Attached to it is the EGR valve itself. Here is a pic diagram showing the assembly. The plate is listed here as a carburator spacer.

Trying find out which wires goes were on a 1992 ford f150 with a 300 six

If it's ignition wires that you're speaking of, and you have not removed the distributor, here is the procedure. With the distributor cap removed, bump the starter just enough to note the direction of the rotor, (usually clockwise) Bring the #1 piston to Top Dead Center on the compression stroke. Cylinder #'s are stamped or raised on the intake manifold. Where the rotor is pointing is where you begin wiring with the # 1 cylinder. Then follow the firing order which is also on the intake manifold in the direction of the rotor movement noted earlier.

How to replace exhaust manifold gasket 1989 jeep wrangler 4.2

I also have an '89 Wrangler with a 4.2 liter inline six. I'm afraid that the spark plugs aren't on the same side as the manifolds. Mine is being a pain in the *** for me. The intake is lining up fine but the exhaust is off by about 1/4 of an inch in the way of a bolt. Was hoping for some solutions, left disappointed.

What is the firing order for a 2006 ford tauras

There are two firing order sequences for the FORD V-6. It depends on which engine you have. The first is 1-4-2-5-3-6. The second is 
1-4-2-3-5-6. The in-line six cylinder engines use: 1-5-3-6-2-4. You should look at the intake manifold to see which firing order your car uses. The firing order is normally stamped or embossed on the top of the intake manifold.
