When you guys say this are you just talking about no power breaking and just hitting the gas off the line and chirping the tires a bit? I'm assuming auto's right?

Yes auto, an not doing a brake stand. Just hammering the gas, my tires will squeal for about a second, longer than a chirp, but it doesn't lay rubber lol.

Also depends on the road surface, sometimes it doesn't, and sometimes I'll get the *** end sliding a touch. It's not why I did the mod, but it's a nice side effect.

Explorer intake cover-you can probably pick one up for under $10, then another $5-10 for hardware.

Nice. Yea I have a lot of play. I might do it one day. lol I didn't mean break stand. lol I'm talking power breaking. Everyone always thinks I'm saying break stand...Yucky! What a waste of tires. :-/ I wish I could go back and tell my younger self that...That A hole would probably laugh and take off like a bat out of He11 though. Stupid a$$. haha



P.S. That Explorer cover is interesting. I wonder why they even bothered making them different. Well obviously to make them look different under the hood I'm sure. still seems that It wouldn't matter. Maybe to the consumer it might.
