what is the difference between the upper & lower manilod on the t series compare to the sandard 5ltr , would i get any gain in kw putting one on my 5ltr ghia, as i'll be using the 70mm t/b aswell, i think from memory the tickford ones had more porting in the manifold plus the outlet for the t/b to suit the larger 70mm t/b.

Assuming you mean the intake from the 5.6L engine, there is a substantial difference. This is a short runner, large plenum intake which is not suited to a mild 5.0L engine.
The Explorer intake you have is more suitable.

If you're referring to the Explorer intake then yes, it would benefit your 5lt as compared to the original HO manifold.

Thatd actually be an Explorer.

If you have an AU Ghia 5.0lt then you'll gain nothing, but if you have an EB-EL 5.0lt Ghia, then yes as Vic said it will make a nice gain over your current HO manifold.
