It ain't just Fords that have plastic manifolds, many other companies
use them too, Toyota for one.. Saturn, etc.

The reason all manufactures use all the lightweight materials
they can is CAFE and some times the cost is higher, not lower.
The reason they can use plastics in manifolds today is there
is no fuel in the manifold of a modern MEFI engine, only air.

Composite manifolds have been around for some time; I believe Ford's
first instance was on the 4.6 Romeos.
Besides, wasn't Flaming Fords run by a couple that got pissed off about the old
ignition switch recall after their Ranger burned up?
