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.

Make a custom one. I spent $45 for mine with a heatshield, maf sensor adapter and everything.

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
