cfm small mouth install

Ok I pulled off the stock intake elbow, read the instructions for the CFM one, and it said something about removing the EGR or whatever on 03 models... Can someone shed some light on this??



That is it off...

I also pulled both intercooler pipes so I can paint them black

did some searching and finally came up with some pics and a link to an install of an 05 elbow on an 03....

05+ Intake Elbow on 03-04 Superduty - The Diesel Garage Forums

Looks like I just need to remove the throttle body and bolt the pipe directly to the intake manifold. What's odd is there is actually no plate in the throttle body... hmm

Those factory threads are very poor quality. On Nate's truck (06TWO50Diesel) we ended up going to the next largest SAE size and tapping new, stronger threads. It's been off once since then with no problems and seems to be holding very well.

Matt beat me to it- it was going to be my warning as well. The aluminum intake manifold is just poorly tapped, hopefully you don't run into the same problem.
To check, thread the new CFM bolts in, without the intake, and see if you can move them around. With my CFM bolts, I could thread em in and wiggle the bolts, so I tapped it and put in some new ones, no problems since!

i agree, Ford's threading into aluminum has posed a few problems in a couple vehicles here around the house, as long as you take your time, youll be all set. ive had mine on and off a couple times and everything is good so far

FYI torque for the elbow and throttle plate are 10 ft/lbs or 13Nm
