      Hey,

      I have a 2000 Explorer XLT 5.0 and AEM nor K&N Make an intake..

      Suprising, they make the 4.0s but no 5.0.
      I was wondering if anyone knew why?

      I seen that MAC. Ive never heard anything about them though.
      Can you feel a big differance with a MAC CAI?
      What kind of improvement did you feel?

      Mac and airmax are your only options, they'll both give you similar performance so take your pic, the mac is a lot cheaper though.

      Thank you.

      What kind of performance will the MAC put out for you though?
      Also. I already have a Exhaust and was wondering what would be the next move to speed my X up?

      Thanks

      it's a noticeable gain, torque monster headers and a good computer tune will give you the big gains though.

      you can get the headers from torquemonsterheaders.com, for a computer tune either an sct x-cal 3 or a livewire. I suggest you get the tuner from www.hensonperformance.com he's a vendor here on the site and tunes a lot of explorers.

      Its a must buy though. aha.

      What are the dyno gains on the intakes?

      With 10+ year truck I would think a brand new CAI would yield gains although I can't find any
