Question 1995 Lightning Under hood pictures

Does anyone have some good pictures of the intake setup on a 94-95 gen 1 lightning?

Blurry Nice. I went to your gallery and looked at the current pics. VERY nice. I am trying to redo my 408 stroker as I used AFR185s and the Edelbrock truck EFI with the BBK dual 61mm TB. TOO much restriction. I am trying to find a manifold that lets it breathe. Everyone suggests the TFR-R or Vic Jr. Is that a GT 4o on the lightning now. Does it have EGR valve and tube? If so, where does it connect. Perhaps I can adapt my 96 Bronco. I am going to use RHS 215s bare heads with a valve build by Jay Allen along withone of his custom cams. Then a single 75mm TB.

The intake on your truck looks nice and seems to give plenty of room. I like the plumbing also. Are your headers shortys or long tube and what diameter. Do you have cats.

Thanks for the pics.

Sorry to ask so many questions, but when I redo the Bronco I want it to look good and not a hack job. As I have heard others say about some mustang mods " Yours looks the way Ford should have built it" Very Nice.

The intakes I posted are GT-40's, and at that time, I had a working EGR system. These intakes are great in the torque department at lower RPM's which is great for a heavy truck. My brother converted his 94 F-150 5.8 to the GT-40 upper and lower as well. He had to move couple of the harnesses and then get a throttle cable for a GEN 1 Lightning, but that's it.

The headers in that pic are Hooker shorty/equal length units and I was running the stock cat section at the time. Now I have long tube headers, full 3" exhaust with Catco cats.

What did you do to eliminate the EGR? Do you get a Check Engine Light?

What size diameter were the shortys?

Pickrel Performance long tube headers with 1 3/4" primarys and 3" collectors.

The shorties I ran were Hookers and they had 1 5/8" primarys and 2 1/2" collectors; these were a direct bolt-on for a GEN 1 Lightning.

As for the EGR, I removed the factory spacer and installed a delete plate. I also tapped and plugged the port on the lower manifold and removed the coolant lines that went to the EGR and plugged the ports for those as well. The EGR function is disabled with the tuning software I use so it wont throw a CEL.

Says it right in his signature.


I havn't seen those headers before...first set I've seen that are that size. Best I've seen are 1 1/2" primaries with 3" collectors. Only thing I'd have to find out from them is if they'll fit a 4wd and what heads the flanges were designed to fit.

Hey Blurry by chance do you have ant pics of the throttle cable bracket and TB cable connections? The plumbing on your truck (red) was that stock?

What size was your ProM MAS. I am going to have to use a 90MM TB and lighning 90mm MAF.

Thanks

The plumbing on the red truck in my gallery is my brother's (water5) 94 F-150 with GT-40 intakes, GEN 1 Lightning EGR spacer and throttle body. Several years ago, I purchased a Lightning MAF conversion, for my white truck when I installed the blower, and gave my brother all of the inlet stuff. He had to buy a new throttle cable (GEN 1 Lightning) for the GT-40 swap and move some wires for the TPS, IAC and EGR.
On my truck, I run a Pro-M Univer blow-thru. I could never get my truck to idle well with a draw-thru, and my current setup, because of where the bypass recirculation is; it was too close to the the back of the MAF. The LMAF air meters work very well and can support as much as 400+ rwhp on some applications.
My brother is using the FMS air meter that came with the conversion kit I purchased as well. It is calibrated for 30lb injectors, which he also has installed.

Thanks. That's good because I hav to almost do the same for my 408. I am going to use a TFS-R 90mm intake with a mustang type throttle body and possibly a 90mm LMAF.

On your brothers truck does the throttle cable bracket just hook to the throttle body or is there another point of connection.

The end attaches to the throttle body but it, and the cruise control cable, go through a bracket that mounts to the EGR spacer. An EGR delete plate will also have the mounting holes for the bracket if you don't plan on using an EGR spacer.
