Through some clever cross-referencing, guys have figured out the Aviator/Marauder intake parts are all larger than the stock Crown Victoria stuff, yet all the connectors and mounting tabs are in the correct locations.

I bought an SCT X3 Powerflash programmer preloaded with the correct program from Blue Oval Chips. The combination is rumored to be good for about 15 hp, and though the engine felt more responsive, dragstrip times remained the same: 10-flat in the eighth-mile, roughly 15.6s in the quarter-mile.
