Intake to Oil Pan

With FRPP's release of the Boss intake (PN M-9424-M50BR; $599.95), we knew that was mod we couldn't resist. With its short-runner design and lightweight composition, it's ideal for our application. FRPP recommends the installation kit (PN M-9444-M50B; $215) as well, which includes an inlet tube and emissions piping; injectors and fuel rail transfer over without an issue.

In conjunction with the intake, we opted for the FRPP 90mm throttle body (PN M-9926-M5090; $689.95). At 10mm larger than stock, this polished throttle body requires a four-inch diameter inlet tube or adapter. Included is the necessary harness adapter. Also required for the installation of the TB is an adapter bracket (PN M-9474-M50B; $56.95) for the Boss intake. This is also polished aluminum and includes bolts for mounting.

To increase oil capacity and to help with K-member clearance, we turned to Moroso for one of its zinc-plated oil pans (PN 20571; $349.99). The pan is internally baffled for road racing or drag racing applications, includes a bung for the oil level sender, and holds two more quarts (10 quarts) than the stock pan. An aluminum version is available as well.

Elsewhere, just for the sake of the photo, we went ahead and mocked up our BBK Performance long-tube headers. These ceramic-coated headers are made specifically for the Coyote-in-a-Fox engine swap, and we'll give you more information on them when we get to the exhaust system.

Until then, our coupe is off to the paint shop; we're awaiting its return so we can begin final assembly.
