A Stock 5.0 Upper Intake Returns
Have you ever taken something to a Junkyard for trade or sold something only to find out some time later that you need that part back? I think everyone in the room would raise their hand. Right? We’ve all done that and I don’t think the car hobby is alone in that. There are many hobbies and there’s always that one thing you wish you hadn’t let go of.
For me in this Bleakley Ford Impressor project I would prefer to find an upper intake that I don’t have to refinish. So a trip to the junkyard was on the list. You can see the current condition of the intake on the car in the pic below. It is pitted and would need some serious time put into making it look new again.
Below is a pic of the intake off of Almost 4.
I should be able to get those old screws out but the finish on this intake is in much better shape and matches the “ageing” of the one that is on this 1990 Saleen. This one will be easy to clean up and make look “lower mile” than the one that is on the car.
Subscribe to the YouTube channel, we’re planning a video of an engine bay transformation of the 1990 Bleakley Impressor Saleen.
