    Anyone installed this in a 3.5L NA engine? I have a 2016 Explorer limited.

    The website does not list it, and email from them says they do not offer a filter for the NA version.

    Only reason i'm asking.... other 3rd party websites/stores list it as fitting the 3.5L NA explorer.

    Welcome to the Forum.:wave:
    I could not find any posts other than yours with that product name using the Forum's 'Search' feature. There are threads on other types of filters but I believe that several members have posted that the OEM is a very good one.

    Hello MekksO82, aFe does make an cai for your Explorer it is called the Magnum Force Stage 2 Pro 5R CAI System # 54-12622 (long winded name) it is listed for the flex but works for 2016- 2017 Exploers with the 3.5 n/a engine. I have a 2017 and have this on mine and love it. It uses the OEM lower air box and you can order it with a cover so it is a true cai. If you want the true benifits of the cai besides the extra noise consider hetting a tuner like Livernois. If you look on amazon you can get the aFe for about $20.00 less. Good luck.

    A little more than I was looking to spend. Had hoped to find a drop in dry filter that I could wash.

    Just wanted to give you a quick update, after checking OEM filter numbers the ford edge 07-14 and my 2016 explorer 3.5NA they have the same air filter.


    I purchased the 31-10215 Dry-s for the edge/flex and it’s a direct fit for the 2016 explorer 3.5NA.
