I'd rather just stay away from the oil-based filters, Downey. Plus these are better...same airflow as a K&N and filters out MUCH better. Only draw back is they only last 4 years, but the price equals out to $10 a year.
Yes, I have a 3.0. I'm not sure what type of engine their DOHC is, the filter I have listed has a 'U' in the VIN code. I will give them a call tomorrow or next week to see if they can fit it up to anything. I am shocked they don't have Explorers as an option!
If this doesn't work out, what about TrueFlow?
