Cold Air Intake HELPSS!

I've got a 93' Ranger 4x4 with a 4.0. What have you guys done with aftermarket air filters? I cant seem to find any info on it.
Thanks!

i wouldnt bother-they dont really do much besides make the engine sound a lil meaner but its all sound. and im told the oil in them can cover the MAF and make it so you have to clean them.

i wouldnt buy a new one anyway

Just throw a Fram in there. The oil ones WILL mess up your MAF.

Alright makes sense. The truck is strictly off road, im just looking for a bit more power and better sound.

Not if it's done right, but it still won't provide any benifits other than the fact you won't need to buy a new one, just reuse the old one after cleaning it.

I got mine for free. Used it to replace the OEM one when it was dirty.

Cold Air Intakes do nothing for our trucks. The O.E. air box is already a cold air intake. If you modify one to fit the only thing you end up doing is making a hot air intake because the air from the engine compartment will feed the filter. Now some have cut a hole directly below the stock air box and made a tube directing air to the filter but they were street trucks. Didn't have to worry bout off road debris.

Put a cold air on my truck.. got 80 kms more out of a tank.. 600 kms instead of 520 on the highway... Pretty good for a 4 litre... same highway and same speed on cruise control..

i run a drop in, picked up MAYBE half a mpg. sounds mean though. as for the oil on the MAF, your over oiling it, ive never had a speck of oil past the filter. theres a reason you let it sit for a while after you spray it.
