Since you now have a fuel injected for van, I strongly recommend you get familiar with the on-board diagnostic computer and how to pull codes from the ECU. It saves a lot of time in diagnosing and maintaining the engine. Your Ford van has a MAP based injection system and you will need to make sure all vacuum hoses are routed properly and all sensors are working and connected.

How to run a self-test (the plugs for you are beside the battery on the passenger fender area)

Two digit self-test codes

http://www.oldfuelinjection.com/ A great site with most of the info you will need to get your van running and performing good.

Had to, this has to be my daily starting tomorrow and the originals were some seriously dry rotted walmart tires with date codes from '02 to '11. Not taking chances with my family. Been pondering Ram truck 20's for the Dodge anyway.

Not bad at all, especially for $450. Rent a rug doctor and get some good shampoo. It looks like it will clean up nice.
