      Comments about Dorman - OE Solutions Plastic:

      Functions just like OEM replacement unit with a 33% to 50% savings in cost. (item price only). A great deal for a 'do it yourselfer'. Less of an overall savings from a total cost standpoint, if you are going to pay someone to do the job. This is a complete intake kit. If you are paying someone to install it....don't let the repair person charge you for intake gaskets, thermostat gasket, or the thermostat itself. All of these items are included with the original cost of the intake kit.

      Comments about Dorman - OE Solutions Plastic:

      I checked the installation suggestions online first. I set up the new unit nearby and as I removed screws and bolts, I placed them in the new, staged unit so I got it back together correctly.
      The original alternator bracket fit perfectly, although the instructions said that it wouldn't.
      Of course, IF the instructions were not folded and under the flap in the box, I would have seen them BEFORE I had the installation finished. I left the gaskets in place and the instruction sheet says that they are not required in the new installation. The car runs fine but this was another thing that may have been helpful BEFORE I had the thing completely installed.Tear-down 1 h, 45 min., completed installation 1 1/2 hours more.

        A great upgraded replacement, has the metal crossover for coolant. So far it seems to perform well, with no noticeable difference in performance or gas mileage. Had a couple flaws that were easy to remedy, trimming the extra plastic away from the molding process. Overall seems to fit and work very well.

          Install new spark plugs before torquing manifold. Manifold covers the spark plug access ports just a little too much on the passenger side. Other than that, overall fit is good.

            Factory intake on the 2007 Crown Victoria was leaking from bottom of thermostat housing. Suspected cracked composite OE intake. While it's off replace it with the Dorman piece. Still a plastic but will outlast my ownership of the car and it has a limited lifetime warranty. Replacement o-rings are available and the fit and quality is great! BONUS: used an Advance Autoparts promo code and got $49 off and a $25 gift card! Service at the store was great. You can get this intake at other places but price, service and piece of mind knowing you got a great deal are bliss!

                Comments about Dorman - OE Solutions Plastic:

                This item appears to be an improvement over the original in that the front of the intake is aluminum and not plastic like the original. The fit is good and less bulky than the original. The only down side to this replacement is the new alternator bracket which doesn't have bolts for the engine cover or a bolt for the cruise control cable support. I was able to drill a hole in the new bracket and take the bolt from the original bracket in order to support the cruise control cable. Other than that it's a good replacement.

                    The updated alt. bracket does not include the studs to hold down the front of the engine cover.
                    Had to use zip ties instead of the original mounting nuts. Otherwise a I would have given 5 stars

                      The second one was perfect.

                        Will this intake fit a 2001 Ford Crown Vic Police Interceptor with a 4.6L engine. Engine code "W"? I believe the injectors may be a bit bigger in the Interceptor's engine to allow for more fuel, also i believe the "runners" may be a bit bigger to allow for more air in the Police engine.
