Hello all!
This is my first post, as a new member I am interested to see if there are any clubs or meets in the southwestern Ontario area, and if anyone is or knows someone who specializes in panther tuning or aftermarket parts.
I never knew that finding preformance parts for these cars was so difficult.
I have recently done a dorman intake manifold swap on my 09 p71 because of the famous crossover tube leak from the thermostat housing, after doing it the car seems to be burning more fuel. I think a tune would help it out but don't know if maybe doing other swaps would be beneficial. I saw on here somewhere that you can replace the throttle body with one from a 5.4? Are the drive by wire connections and vaccum line connections all the same? I would love to hear what tb would work on my car! And if it would help with power and efficiency, or just power.

I am new to the panther scene so any advice is appreciated!

I am in the same boat, here is what I think. I have a 97 Grand Marquis 4.6l 2 valve with the pi intake added after the intake cracked that's good for 20hp. I plan on adding the dual exhausts, 5.4l throttle body and intake and zip tube from the newer cars then send out my computer to get tuned before driving it, for those mods, but first I will do the rear end gears I have 2.73 gearing and no posi so first mod will be getting a 4.11 setup with posi, thats going to make the most difference in performance. I figure about 800.00 to get the Ford track lock setup new wheel bearings, seals, new rearend cover, gaskets, labour etc.. I don't mind sending my computer to the States I had to do that for my lighting control module already.
