it's 6nm or 53in/lbs for the charge air cooler (intercooler) to the mid plate. ford says not to reuse the gasket OR the small bolts! but I reused mine anyway. no particular torque sequence givin, but start in the center on each side and work your way out.

as for the supercharger bolts and the 4 mid plate bolts in the rear, it's:
Stage 1: Tighten to 2 Nm (18 lb-in).
Stage 2: Tighten 45 Nm (33 lb-ft).

the bolts are NOT listed as not reuseable.

there is a torque sequence listed for these bolts, but I can't link the picture directly from ford. but again, basically start in the center of the S/C on each side and work your way out.

good luck.

later,
chris

thanks

thanks chris,

What is your opinion on reusing the blower and manifold gaskets? I'm not particularly fond of it but alot of people have said no reason to change them.

the supercharger to mid plate and mid plate to lower intake gaskets are metal, no reason to replace them unless they get damaged somehow.

however I'd definately recommend using new intake to cylinder head gaskets. they have the elastomer or whatever o-rings on them and I wouldn't want to reuse them. those gaskets are the same for any 4.6/5.4 so most any dealership should prolly have them in stock.

just my .02

later,
chris

Intake to Lower I/C Metal Gasket

Does anyone know if there is any difference from the 99-00 to the 01-04 Metal Gasket?

The 01-04 Gasket P/N: 1L3Z-9461-BA

Yes they are different. They have different bolt patterns on the front side.
