It does look nice, I myself am really picky with the sellers feedback score. I wouldn't get it based just on that, but I'm not saying it is a real bad one, I'm just picky

it says you have to
"Simply weld on the flange to the intake manifold and bolt the throttle body to it."
I think I would pass

You have to think about everything else that attaches to it. IAC, Throttle Position sensor, etc. I think its too much work. I would go with another throttle body from another ford vehicle. I read somewhere that you can use 5.0 throttle bodies without too much mod.
