For an 02 from Autozone Repair Guide. Go to Autozone and sign up and you can look at the repair guide.

To install:


NOTE
Ford does not specify a sequence for either upper or lower intake manifolds, but it is recommended that you start tightening in the middle and work your way out to the ends. Repeat the tightening sequence several times until the bolts will no longer turn at the specified torque.




Install the lower intake manifold. Torque the bolts to 10 ft. lbs. (13 Nm) for 2000, and 13 ft. lbs. (18 Nm) for 2001.
Position the upper manifold on the lower manifold.
Install or connect the following:


Attach both VMV hoses to the manifold Upper manifold attaching bolts. Torque the bolts to 62 inch lbs. (7 Nm).

What about 2002? Thanks purevenom1 but this is another reason why I try to stay away from Autozone. They are just too unreliable for me.

NP. That was for an 02 Explorer Sport. Pretty much the same that is in my Haynes manual that stops in 01.
