Here's a question. How easy is this to do on a '03 CVPI, do the parts just bolt on or is there some modifying required? Also, if I am going to get it dyno tuned afterward, can I install the parts and then drive it to the shop (without tuning, since that's why I am going to the shop) or will that hurt my car?

I guess that's two questions.

TIA,
Dave

MZT isn't an acronym it's idiocy.

And buying a K&N hot air intake is not? Don't sh!t on this thread b.c you don't agree with anything being discussed.

If the Marauder airbox was a bad idea, then Ford would not have used a very similar setup on all 04+ P71's

I was speaking about THE NAME.

Never did you see me say any of the tech here was bad.

Its just an acronym, seriously who cares? I think thats why this particular thread explains it, because otherwise its confusing. Before I read this thread I didn't know what MZT meant, but I had heard about the mercury maraudar maf and air box and using the 2004 PI zip tube. People just shortened the meaning. If the reperesented every word then it would be MMABMAFMZT= mercury maraudar air box, mass air flow meter, and zip tube.

I wouldnt believe that, Hell they used plastic coolant crossovers on these and even after they found out there was issues they still sent them out with them...

dRock96Marquis please prompt есче time I tried to put The filter k&k without any completions. And here that poluchalos - on ходную there was a detonation (or a lot of fuel or a lot of air). Put the regular filter all OK. I also have left this idea. But you You speak that business in a flowmeter of air and it do not consult, means it is necessary to put from marauder. But whether there is it on cpv 1992, whether will clash with ecu?

I've got a NPI '00 so I can't say if any mechanical fitting tweaks will be required on your PI '03. If your '03 has a 70mm MAF, it may be difficult to drive to the dyno with the 80mm MAF installed due to the difference in stock vs. 80mm MAF curves in the EECV.

If your car was made in late 1992, Yes, it will clash with ecu.
As the first post in this topic states, cars from 1992.5-1994 need a chip. It will reprogram everything to work with a larger air flow sensor.

It appears that it depends on when your car was built. Hope that helps (and I hope I understood your question)...

What's up all. I'm new here obviously, and I realize my car doesn't fit the mold really , but it's a panther platform so here I am! I've been reading your forums for a few days before I signed up and started asking questions, but here goes.

I plan on doing the mzt mod to my TownCar, and I was just curious if anyone has experience having local performance shops flash your computer instead of spending the $ on the excal2. I like the fact that this is an inexpensive way of increasing performance by using OEM parts, I just don't like the fact that the programmer doubles the cost.

I have Town Car too (1997). I am trying to find out

1) How much actual HP gain can I get before shelling out over $700

2) What are some 0-60 and 1/4 mile times with this mod?

stock 97 Tc with just an MZT setup would most likely net you around a mid to high 15 sec quarter. 0-60 around 7-8 sec..
