    If the wiring connectors are the same, I think you can use the whole intake with the 3.0 IAB.

    I've always heard; 3.2 block - everything else 3.0

    the iac valves are completely interchangeable between the 3.0 and 3.2 but you will find that the 3.2 iac is much much easier to remove/install than the 3.0 one, so I always recommend using the 3.2 part there.

    if you are using the 2 belt accessory drive, but using the 3.2 heads, then you need to cut off a piece of the front head to allow the 3.0 alternator to mount. you will want to do that before you install the motor in the car.
