      2008 adrenalin
      Just bought an 08 adrenalin, white suede. Looking for some upgrades to give this unit some get up and go. Any recommendations on intakes? chips? programmers? exhaust setups? also has anyone heard if roush or saleen will be producing a supercharger for the adrenalin?

      I do not think anyone is doing a cat-back exhaust for the STA

      Check out my Cardomain site for ideas.

      In order:
      Flowmaster weld in exhaust (eliminate the resonator)
      Series 77 K&N Filter kit (for 2006 Explorer)
      SCT Tuner (FastPartsNetwork.com)
      Zabteck Throttle Body
      Steeda Pulleys

      What's with the double muffler components in those last photos? Is the single muffler itself not enough? I see a secondary slimmer piece after the muffler above?

      I was wanting to just have a Flowmaster Delta series welded in.

      Anybody have aftermarket exhaust sound clips or video of the Sport Trac?

      The first muffler is there to act like a resonator and the second muffler is the final muffler. between both ,they help keep it down to a roar at WOT.

      For some ,one muffler is enough but I also have a family that rides with me and the spouse does not appreciate the sound of a free flowing V8 engine so this set up is what works best for me and still the exhaust flow isn't compromised. :usa:

      Ok yesterday I put in my K&N 77 series CAI it looks awesome it's the chrome pipe. My buddy cut out the stock muffler and welded in a magnaflow. This was not as great it sounds stock when revved and at idle. It gets louder with WOT or half throttle under load but it's not near enough for me. I should have taken the resonator out. So I will buy a 2 ft. piece of 2.5 inch pipe and weld it in place of the resonator. And for anyone who wants this 4.6 liter to sound like a mustang take out the resonator or you will be disappointed. If you want a little rumble when you get on it but keep it quiet when driving around town then leave the resonator in. Good thing I don't have to pay my welder or for lift time pays to have a friend who owns a shop.

      I've done a ton of perf mods on my STA. Check out my cardomain page for a complete list and pics.

      http://www.cardomain.com/ride/3101456

      I did the intake, custom catback w/ electric cutout, custom tune, throttle body and more.

      They make a huge difference.

      I was thinking about a set of underdrive pulleys for the next mod in a year. Not sure their price is worth the small gain.

      will the intake (k/n 63-2573) fit for a v6? even though its rated for a v8. was thinking about hooking that up with the zap throttlebody
