Hi all! I'm going to replace a heater tube assembly and I'm going to have to
remove the plenum to get at it. I don't know if I should try to remove the
whole Plenum/egr/throttle assembly in one piece, saving me replacing two of
the three gaskets, or to separate these and replace all the gaskets. Or
maybe there is a short cut?
I know many mustang owners bore out /polish ports in the plenum and install
oversized throttle bodies, so I bet many people out there have experience
working on this area.
Thanks for any advice!
I replaced the heater tube in my lincoln, by removing the 6 bolt retaining
the plenum.....unless you want to overhaul the throttle body, this is the
fastest way......( I had to do it in a hotel parking lot in Florida.....)

Thanks Spark! This is exactly my problem Lincoln as well, so I should grab
the gasket for the EGR spacer then before I start this. I guess I need the
torque wrench as well. Thanks again!
