It is only for the 1999 model year,. It consists of reflashing the computer, better flowing exhaust, and an intake modification.

The only fix I am aware of for MY 1996 was a radiator upgrade. There is still a TSB (technical service bullitten) out for this. Have hour ford dealer run your VIN and see If that was ever done. If not you may have a new radiator in your future. Depended on the attitute of the dealer.

for a TSB to be done for free, you still have to be under warranty. My friend is in this dilemma right now because his car has never had it done and he is at 67000 miles. The way you can tell if it has been done is if the honeycomb grill in front is removed. If you are outside of your factory warranty, you can go to 888-radiator for a 97-98 radiator (they are about $150!).

Hope that helps:thumbsup:
