Some of the 400 intake manifolds do have enough "meat" around the ports to seal a 351C 4bbl port. Only one way to find out and that's to try it. As for the loss of velocity in them vs the 2 bbl...

No. I would look for them off any application that had GT40 heads, then do any work that's necessary before installing them. Chances are you'd pay more for those off a Mustang 5.0, simply because...

The heads you have now, have 58-60 cc chambers. The non mustang GT40 heads had 64 ccc chambers, which will lower the ratio by about a half point. The Mustang only GT40 heads got a couple of extra...

And with slightly larger valves and ports. He'll want to mill em about .040 too, to get the GT40 chamber down closer in volume to his stock heads (unless he runs across a set that came off a Mustang...

Are you driving with the A/C on "A/C or with it on "Max A/C" ? When it's on A/C, the fan is pulling air from outside the van and with the windows closed, you're pressurizing the passenger...

10 mPG as per a Gasoline gallon equivalent (GGE) sounds about right as a GGE is only about $1.80 (around here when you can find a station) That should be a 5.4 not a 5.7
