Need some help

Alright so i am just starting to work on my truck. I am planning on Putting on a K&N cold air intake, underdog pulley system, and a Magnaflow dual rear exit exhaust on 2001 3.0 I haven't got the parts yet so if anybody can give me good reason not to use those brands and can suggest a better on it'd help me out alot Thanks

No on the K&N due to the fact how theres no shield from the engine heat. Go with a Volant. The pulleys and Magnaflow are good choices though.

Volant doesnt make an intake for any 4.0 newer than 2003.

Will the 03 intake fit an 08?

Oh I knew they made a 04+ 3.0 intake, I just figured they would make a 4.0 one as well

Howdy. Go with whatever intake set up has a heat shield, it'll be worth it.

Ok here is a question about the heat shield? Is it really going to make that big of a difference? I mean none of the intakes i have seen for the ranger leave the engine bay, so there not really true cold air intakes, your still pulling in hot air is that little plastic shield gonna make my gains that much less?

K&N heat shield = a joke.

I have heard of some people pulling hotter Intake Temps with K&N then with stock.

Volant is a good idea. AEM is nice cause its a dry filter so no ruining you MAF sensor.

You may even be able to pipe up your own intake with whatever kind of filter you want.

Personally i love true flow systems they have always been great but i dont know much about them on our trucks.

The stock intake is a true cold air intake
