and I think that this has something to do with it:







I just got around to installing my MAC intake last night and all day today I kept finding reason to really get on the gas! I love the sound of a V8 breathing in more freely, and can't wait to hear it combined with a free flow exhaust




I also have my drivers side Signal Mirror installed and will have the passengers done on Saturday morning. After I finish, I will post a small how to with some pic's. It is really quite simple. The hardest part is routing the wire from the door to the cabin.

Nice Chad! At first I thought you weren't pleased with your MAC intake but upon further reading of the thread I realized that wasn't the case! Awesome!

Looks nice, Chad!!



I know what you mean about the problem of jumping on the gas all the time. When I did my Gibson exhaust and K&N intake, I really thought I'd gain a couple of MPG, but it was just the opposite
Turns out, it was all my fault :shootme:



Maybe now that it costs about $40.00 to fill the thing up
, I'll learn to take it easy a little bit

Very nice Chad!!!!!




I just filled up today. Approximately 10-11 gallons for $25.60. That's $2.15 per gallon. Gotta love these prices. :roll:

Your gas prices must be cheap then rob. That's about what I pay, a little less(1.75 a gallon x 20), altough I fill up half tanks at a time, to make it hurt less.

Dear God....2.15 per gallon...when I was just up in Rochester I couldn't believe I paid 1.87 per gallon...



Locally here they are ~$1.55...if I was completely on E and filled up my tank it would only cost me $23 max. And my gas tank is the same size as 4-doors.

DAYUM!!!! $1.55?! I haven't seen that in a few years. $1.87 was our "normal" before the price increase. I remember years ago (about 1997) when gas in Phoenix, AZ was $.99 per gallon and $1.21 here. Wish it was like that again.

Chad, Looks great



Rob, NJ has the cheapest gas around that's why when I am in NJ I alway's fill up. In NY it is around $1.90 for 87 right now but it is expected to go up.

Looks nice Chad, I am looking forward to seeing youre "how to" mirror install.



As far as gas, I only drive my X on the weekend and have to fill it up every weekend.....I'm just glad I dont have to drive it all the time, I would be broke, they are not very gas friendly.

When I wend from my 00 Mountaineer v8 to my ZX3 I was shocked when I filled it up, it would only hold $8.00 and had less than 1/2 a tank, $8.00 in my X wont hardly move the guage

Looks great under the hood there! ?I like to engine cover on the mounty too! ?


The explorers have that too. At least mine did. I am pretty sure that all the other ones did too. Or maybe it is just a V-8 thing. I dont know. But it sure would be great if I could retrofit that thing to be able to fit over the Kenne Bell. Unless I decided to go with the polished one in which case I would be forced to show it off.
