my new intake take a look

well i went ahead and ditched the old k&n cold intake i had on my 2003 3.0

[IMG][/IMG]

it was a nice quality unit but sucked too much engine heat in,due to the crappy heat shield thing it came with.
so went to this from Roush and hillbank still has a few left

now there was only one thing i did not like was the cheap paper filter it came with

[IMG][/IMG]

so with a little modding a k&n element and some gasket material, to help seal the edges more,this is what i got

much better for blocking the heat from the engine than before
and quieter also

its a cheap economical intake for about a 110.00 bucks and any budget

Looks good.
Since that just replaces the air box and 2.3, 3.0 and 4.0 airboxes are all the same - could this be made to work for a 4.0???

I was thinking that to. However, I love my K&N fipk, and no plans to change it. I may go with an AEM dry filter later on, but im happy. It does what I need it to do. It has the walls with the rubber on top and thats enough for me.

Edit, the 04 one like mine have a better heatsheild than that 03 one pictured there.

i dont think so due to the 4.0 having a bigger diameter intake(could be wrong)

that was my initial idea but due to the length and angle of the k&n tube it would not fit

can you still hear it sucking in air? does the heat shield do anything noticeable.

It won't work on my 2007...damn molded into the airbox MAF. With my intake that would be perfect. Oh well.
