      Its got some good rumble to it but very little drone. Only at a certain rpm and only bad going up hill... but i dont have the magnaflow manifold cats on yet so it may get louder... its my wifes car so i have to be careful... may end up putting a larger resonator on it if needed. The custom y definately added sound, not much to volume but more in just a rumbling sound

      Does anyone know if the heavy duty alternator that’s in the Explorer interceptor will work on the 3.5?

      Yes it fits. The 3.7 is a bore out 3.5. Accessories mount basically the same.

      I had talked to the dealership and they acted like they didn’t know what they were talking about. They did say it would probably void my warranty, but I have a feeling that it won’t. I like the idea of a beefier alternator just because you can add more accessories that require power.

      Has anyone here done the 3rd brake light strobe to your explorers? I’m looking around, I just don’t know which one to get.

      Not sure about the 2015 but the alternator on my 2017 already is a 'heavy duty'.

      I went down to my ford dealership and they had the 2014 limited alternator and the “heavy duty” from the interceptor use on hand. Side by side they are the same. The heavy duty in the limited vs the heavy duty of the interceptor is a difference of 15 amps. Which is by design cause of everything law enforcement puts in the vehicles.
      As for the warranty if it scares you enough go buy the one from ford and use a ford part. That way if some some dumb reason the regulator goes out a fries the car they can’t squalk. Ford part! Ford part! You will be fine to change it. I wouldn’t hesitate. If mine dies before I sell my ex I will probably do that if nothing else for the stereo equipment I will be putting in there.
