The intake won't help much even with an exhaust since the engine is still pretty much stock but IMO go for Volant for intake and Magnaflow catback for exhaust.

Also you posted in the 4 banger section and your profile says 4.0. I'm guessing you have a 4.0.

Ha. I moved it for you man. And also, another thing that will help alot with the intake and exhaust is a SCT programmer. I believe the combination of the three would help out tremendously.

Just look at that sexy box


^^No hot air injection there. I'd get one for my Taco since you can get that ram air scoop for it but I have heard it will make my truck run rich.

AEM makes some decent stuff the problem the intakes for our trucks suck. The K&N FIPK is very similar to that. I would lose all kinds of power because the truck would just suck in that hot air. I will never run a non boxed intake again.

ok i understand the arguments about sucking in hot air and not really increasing power, but what about all the DYNO proven results??? and no im not talking about results claimed by the manufacture.

Results are negligible.

cold air isnt worth the money. air box silencer mod or build your own Ford Ranger 4.0L cold air induction
i couldnt see paying around $200+ for something that will not do much if anything on a stock engine

I'd rather have a hot air intake to help fuel mileage. Hot air, less dense, needs less fuel. Would you notice haveing a few less hp, i doubt it.

Hmmm... and I see you don't understand that this will pull timing too.. Which reduces your mileage.

I would bet that every legitimate CAI out there is going to help performance. The only time you are sucking in "hot" air is when you are stopped, and where I live between the months of May and September. The rest of the time its cool out.

EDIT: I bet if you were to time yourself at a rest vs. the time you are moving you would be moving 80% or more of the time. The arguement of sucking in hot air dosent sit with me.

No - I've logged this kind of data so many times that I know your wrong.

I see 10 degree differences on open intakes compared to cool-box stock intakes. Intercoolers help this quite a bit.

I'm arguing that open filter intakes will cause IAT to rise even at highway speeds.

I would be glad to post a few logs next time I tune someone for an intake or more.
