Notes:this estimate does not include diagnostics, which, if applicable, should not exceed 1.0 hour. Also, the aftermarket intake assembly quoted above includes a thermostat.Given the age and mileage of the vehicle, a used intake may work just fine.

Intake prices: New MSRP: $1146.40. Used: $50 to $250. Aftermarket: $250 – $450

NOTE: there is a recall on intake manifolds for certain years, makes, models, engines. The vehicle listed above “may” be applicable for replacement by an authorized dealer at no charge, or, if the repairs are already done, reimbursement from Ford/authorized dealer. Reimbursement will likely be less than this estimate, as this will be paid via warranty guidelines – not a retail repair rate.

Recommendation: call a local Ford dealer to determine if this vehicle falls under the recall
