Re: intake manifold 1998 crown vic

We've only used the Ford OEM manifolds. We've heard that some of the others are not as well made but many people use them. Check ebay, they sometimes have OEMs cheap. One is on now starting at $95 and no bids. Not sure if it's for your model. There's nothing else that can cause problems other than maintenance items and the manifold or any other thing removed to replace it.

Re: intake manifold 1998 crown vic

just found auction you are taking about


2001 FORD CROWN VICTORIA INTAKE MANIFOLD NEW OEM | eBay

but does not include gaskets that would cost around 40

have you heard any cons on the intake manifolds with gaskets already in the manifold

All of the ones we used had gaskets in the kit. I've removed and reinstalled the manifolds with the old gaskets many times at a friends place. The gaskets actually can be re-used. I'd replace them any way.
