It has the gt40/cobra style manifold, which is very similar in flow to the explorer (el series 2 manifold) you already have.

And the Sprint was 192kW, not 220. ;)

It was actually different to them all.. It was an experimental manifold before the Cobra Mustang engine to which the Sprint engine bassically is...
Ford used these developement manifolds on the Sprint... The difference between Sprint manifolds and Cobra ? Is the Sprint has seperate EGR like the H.O manifolds...The Cobra didn't have coolant through EGR also...

Different intake, different ECU, different camshaft (I'm told), better flowing exhaust...

Explorer intake and ELGT headers bump the stock HO to 185kw.
The Cobra intake is still available and has identical ports to a Sprint intake internally. The Explorer intake has the same port configuration but the ports taper more at the port face to improve low end torque for use on Explorers.
