Do some looking on the National Lightning Owners site, also look in ford truck enthusiasts and Full Size Broncos websites as well.
I started a thread on one of those some time back about useing the efi car style intake on my Bronco.
I was going to run the car style, but do to other priorities (time) I decided to wait untill later since I was already doing so much work with my new engine and making so many changes and had so much detail work to do already.
Firstly, EGR in the Bronco draws exhaust from pass. side exhaust manifold. On the cars it comes up through the intake. Not sure exactly how, but I'd guess just comes up through the exhaust crossover since my E'brock Performer base had a hole from that passage and the lower can be used with the truck or car uppers.
I thought about useing the GT40 intake, but read some issues about the base needing work so I decided to just go with the E'brock since I would be able to re-use the base and switch just the upper later if I still chose to.
Incidently, spend an hour or two searching for intake info on the net and you should quickly come up with a fantastic test of most of the intakes available that will give you an idea of what rpm they work best in. I believe it was a test on the Anderson webpage, basically scanned magazine pages.
But.........what else do you intend to do to the engine????
If nothing else, it wouldn't surprise me if it actually would hurt performance since it would loose some port velocity.
The E7TE heads are the biggest hp hinderance on the Bronco 351 in my opinion. Then the exhaust, cam, and then intake.
Give some more details of other intended mods or mods done or intended use and hp hopes.
