Watch the fuel rail front cross-over pipe hitting on the front left hand side upper to lower bolt boss of the lower intake. I had to hog a heap of metal out and bend the fuel rail to make it fit (the original Trickflow cut-out for the pipe was obviously designed for a different pipe location and angle). I still wasn't happy with the outcome. This was using an AU XR8 fuel rail on a Trickflow street burner intake. The E-series rails are probably the same.

In the end I used a Mustang fuel rail and ran the intake the "right way around" with the TB on the right hand side. Everything then fitted like a factory part.

Other than that it was a direct swap over.

On my EL, it appears as though the fuel rail was forced out of the way and is hard-up against the section of intake xafalcon explained. In saying that, I have had no issues with it in the few years it's been running.
