Hey, Flik



I've been admiring your latest Explorer on the boards. I love my Limited, and have just started some customizing. Rims, tires, billets, clear corners and sound system so far.



I've been looking at the performance mods available for the 4.6. Not much out there. Right now, I'm looking at maybe doing the intake and exhaust. I like the K&N intake kit, and the Gibson cat-back stainless exhaust (not too loud). Can you help me with either of those?

The K&N FIPK is highly overrated IMO. Stick with a KKM or MAC and you'll get the same results.

Well, I'm all for horsepower and torque, and nice V-8 noises.



I finished up my debadging experience last weekend, which turned out to be a lot of work, so its time to start enhancing performance.



After emailing Volant twice, and waiting a month for some kind of response on whether they were going to ever offer an intake kit for the 4.6, I've given up on them. Going to do the K&N. I like the idea of having a heat shield, and also, in case any warranty argument ever came up, I think the fact that Ford repackages K&N stuff and sells it as "SVO" should indicate that they think its OK.



FLIK, I'll email you about ordering the K&N kit, and also a Gibson stainless exhaust.
