Gaskets for EFI manifold change.

Iím installing my ED XR8 sprint (cobra) inlet manifold to my Windsor soon. In order to achieve a quick and trouble free installation Iím after help now with the gaskets and various bits and pieces Iíll need to use. I can see that Iíll need
Throttle body gasket
EGR plate gasket
Upper to lower inlet manifold gasket
2 x lower inlet manifold to head gaskets

Iíve read EL1XR8ís guide but this aspect is not emphasised. What have I forgotten? There are spacers / gaskets that run along the bottom front and rear of the lower inlet manifold joining it to the block arenít there?

What should I expect to pay for these parts from ford and what are my alternative suppliers? Repco? Anyone know the gasket part numbers? Apart from some gasket goo and coolant what else should I arm myself with for the job?

Many thanks.

Re: Gaskets for EFI manifold change.

Thanks Gambit, the 1250 kit includes everything you need for the lower to be bolted to the block/heads, correct?

Is this the one?

Does $40 sound reasonable?

Re: Gaskets for EFI manifold change.

Yeah the 1250 is just the intake to head gaskets and $40 is okay. You can either just use silicon gasket maker instead of the other gaskets (it selas and holds as good if not better) or order the gaskets through ford.

Re: Gaskets for EFI manifold change.

You might need 2 longer bolts for the upper manifold. From memory the exploere manifold we needed to use longer bolts for the 2 middle bolts. The standard bolts did JUST bolt down but there was only a couple of threads holding it.

Re: Gaskets for EFI manifold change.

You won't need the 1250, unless you intend to port match.
The 1250's are way bigger than the lower ports and bigger than the E7 ports.
There are stock replacement gaskets that are smaller and cheaper that will do the same job.
I get my stuff from Scott at Auto power parts, near Brookside. Or Performance Wholesale on the south side.
All intake gasket sets should include the cork gasket between the heads.
And unless the other gaskets were damaged when you removed the parts, there shouldn't be any need to use new gaskets.
best to use a bit of sealant on all gaskets though, just for piece of mind.

Ive done this mod and got plenty of help from EL1XR8. Your definately gonna need longer bolts for the new manifold. Also dont forget the thermostat gasket too! That article explains all you need with the t-piece etc. Just make sure you plan this out beofre getting stuck into it. You dont wanna be stranded or have to drive to repco 10 times!

Re: Gaskets for EFI manifold change.

Use Hylomar Gasket spray, if you want it to last.. Bloody good gear but its about $20 for a can.
