    FYI

    Dorman now makes an intake manifold for the 03-05 4.6l.

    The 02 version being 615-175.
    The new version is 615-775.

    Got me one for my '03 Mounty.

    Also first item I've purchased from RA. Little disappointed to receive and brand new item where the box has been previously opened. Don't really understand that. Everything appears to be there, no signs of install.

    Plastic is stamped "made in USA," while aluminum cross over says "China."

    Was there packaged air on top of the intake? Usually they will stuff packaged air and even bubble wrap items to combat shipping damage.

    No, but I was expecting to find something inside from RA. The clear tape that was put on it almost looked machine done.

    I'll take some side by sides with the OE,haven't compared them at all.

    $164 delivered. Their price changed a few times once I put it in the cart.

    Here's some pictures new and old. Quite a bit difference in height. Deeper equals more torque?
    Also, is the rubber cap with the spring clamp in the one that always pops off? (Last picture) I'd thought the purpose of an '03-'05 version would be to eliminate this feature.

    Third pic down you can see that Dorman skimped out on brass mounts. Just opted for self tapping screws.

    I'm wondering if the only difference between the 615-175 and 775 is hardware.

    Yes, that rubber cap is the one that always pops off -- or it wears out and coolant goes everywhere. It happened to me twice when I was out of town. maddening -- and I replaced the manifold October 2014. It's not like it's been on a long time.
