normal 2v 4.6 is slightly different from that 4v Cobra motor you posted Shorebird

did that part carry over to the F-150 from the Mustangs? or did Ford re-design the wheel like they usually do



edit: wait, is that a 96 era Cobra?

Not sure where it's on the 4.6's but on my 02 5.4 I knew all to well where it was and it was a major PITA to get to.

Yes Tylus. however the IAC will be on the throttle body in the air path between the MAF and the manifold.

None of the 04-08 truck have an IAC they are all fly by wire So the throttle body does it all. It doesent matter 4.6 5.4 or 4.2 all fly by wire.
