Help identify this ford intake manifold
« on: September 08, 2012, 07:39:33 PM »
Currently on my 80' Pinto and I know for sure its not stock.

Has this number on the front far side ( 1-3-4-209EE9425-AA )

My guess is that it came off a foxbody mustang or thunderbird

No other topics of decoding intake numbers on here and no help searching the web

It has oval ports, not a square top mount like a stock pinto manifold and has a top mount that would fit a Holley 2300, Motorcraft 2100/2150 etc...

1-3-4-2 is the ignition firing order.  The rest is the "engineering number", indicative of when the part was designed and what it was designed for.
 
"09" has to be D9 which is 1979 (the design year). "EE" is "Pinto" and "engine".  9425 is intake manifold and AA is the revision number.
 
Looks to me to be the correct original intake for your car.

I have 2 Pinto heads with oval ports & a stock intake to match. My other intake is the Offy dual port which mates to the oval port head.

Sounds like someone took off the 5200 adapter/egr plate. A 2300 series holley will bolt on a factory intake. I used to run a holley pattern 1 inch spacer between the factory manifold and a 350 cfm holley on mine,

Thanks 72pair and all for the info. Also on this intake there is an anti freeze line coming from the back plate then there looks to be another inlet to let the coolant flow out but its capped off? Anyone know where it would connect to ?

It's for the choke on the carb.

Thanks, D.R.Ball also 72pair the 5200 adapter/erg plate could I still purchase this adapter or would I have to search junk yards and how did you find running the Holley on your pinto I also have a rubber 1" spacer and ran a used Holley 2300 but found it to run to rich like its too big for a small 2.3? I put an old 84' motorcraft 2100 with a downsized power valve #16.

I imagine you'll be junkyard scrounging. I liked how the holley ran. 1st I used a small marine version of unknown origin, then I switched to a 7448 350 cfm with Racer Walsh power valve restrictors installed. Just have to adjust jetting and power valve to your setup. I may have an adaptor... dont know where you are...shipping may not be worthwhile.

I googled Racer walsh looks like a cool site/place for ford aftermarket goodies, Thanks for your offer 72 but I'm sure I could find one nearby theres a junkyard about 2hrs from me that I heard rumors of having over 20 pintos lined up. Could you give me a product code or link for the restrictor and jetting, thanks so much
