I'm not hatting on it, I typed Nice truck, but I see alot of people all the time say they have a cold air intake, when they put on a K&N filter, BUT they don't put the shroud box around the filter, and what it does is suck HOT air from around the engine.

I have a Friend in Bain Berry, that put one on his little hot hatch and wanted me to see it, I told him that was a nice piece but it's now a Hot air intake, it was also placed right above the exhaust manifold.


Also look for a early 2000 Explorer with the 5.0, for the engine swap, or at least I would.....but it might be a 4.6 or something.
