When you have the 2.5 timing and valve covers off oil seal and gaskets need to be replaced.

Tap for knock sensor is M12x1.5. I drill it out with a 3/8 bit first and then tap the hole.

Swap over oil sensor and the 2 sensors on the head coolant cross over tube. Put a little RTV on these before reinstalling.

There will also be points on the block the will need new RTV. You’ll see them when you pull the old covers off. Take a razor blade and clean these areas before fresh RTV.

The vacuum can be done for free using the vac pieces from both engines. A piece of vac needs to be purchased to run from the brake booster to one of the UIM ports.

If you already have an SVT then swap over the cams, chains, guides, and tensioners. The having the SVT TB, bracket, cable already is also another bonus.

The EGR tubes of both engines have to be cut and joined together. Either by brazing or by a 5/8 brass compression fitting.

So about $900 if you have an SVT. If you don’t have an SVT TB and find a used one then order the SVT bracket and cable ($90) and braze the SVT and Taurus TB bracket together. The plastic cam needs to be dremeled a bit as well.

Hoepfully this helps some peeps out. This might be a good sticky. I pretty much summed up a lot of scattered info. If you don't like the Taurus UIM then port match the heads for the 2.5 UIM a la Demon's web page. Bolt up all your 2.5 bits and be good to go.

Click for info.

You're also doing to need a tune. Figure about $350 for a x-cal & tune from Brenspeed. Add a dyno time for the best tune on top of that.
