i got the k&n for my truck...you notice the power right there around 3000 rpm.
you can go to the knfilters.com site and look at the dyno charts where the extra power is. It sounds pretty sweet too..and looks awesome...
I say go k&n because they dont make the mac for our trucks and its a pretty good price.
well i guess im wrong..they do make the mac for the ohv, i just didnt see it before.

The explorer kit should work the same.. I believe they are the same engines.. Either way, I also sell those intakes as well as a few others.

That is a great price if it is a K&N. Even if you add $20-$25 freight it is still a great price. The only one they make for your application is the FIPK which is the plastic tube. Model number should be 57-2527.

My buddy bought one of them cold air intakes for his truck off ebay....and it seems like when we line up...that he lost a lil bit of the low end....i had a aftermarket intake and felt the same thing and just did the K&N drop in and cut the box open more....that was the best thing to do for me.
