    I just got my exlporer on Monday. I was just thinking about a performance chip and an air intake right now. What is the best way to go?
    Thanks.

    Trust me, my new friend, I shall never tell you are anyone else to SEARCH.

    For you to get the most out of a chip/Programer, it is advisable to do an intake such as a KKM and a cat back exhaust.

    Good luck and keep asking questions.

    In my opinion the throttle body made the most difference for me. After everything had been opened up to breath better, the chip/flasher made a huge difference.

    on second thought you likely have the SOHC and won't be able to find a T-Body so I vote Chip/flasher

    A chip/tuner can make all the difference on your new Explorer. Improved shifting, driveability and power are all common with one. Also any future mods like different gear ratio's and tire sizes can be changed with a simple free software and programming cable.

    Send me an email if this sounds like something you'd be interested in.

    Thanks, Doug.

    bang for the buck, the chip / programer is the way to go.
    Exhaust, and intake will round out the package to make your Ex scoot.
