      I will be taking delivery of a 2017 Explorer XLT, I opted not to get the sport appearance package as it wasn't the exact shade of black (was sort of a darker grey). I plan on buying the sport kick plates, the explorer hood badging and the sport grille and rear trunk trim. Anyone know how to get these parts? Or is going through the dealer the best way?

      Welcome to the Forum.:wave:
      There is a forum vendor that you can contact about the parts you are looking for although I'm not sure about shipping to Canada. Try contacting Benny at Levittown Ford Super Center; http://www.explorerforum.com/forums/index.php?conversations/add&to=LevittownFordSuperCenter
      You can always try your dealer as well.

      What is the (MXV) in the profile block? It would be more helpful for the members in addressing future concerns if you added XLT as the trim.

      Welcome to the community!

      Your best bet for those parts is most likely going to be your local Ford store.

      If there is anything from a technical and/or performance part standpoint that we can assist you with please do let us know! Enjoy your new baby :chug:

      I'll fix that right now, is there a way to enter a profile photo by the way.? I can't seem to find it.

      Yo bburzycki,
      I am seriously considering purchasing a 2017 Sport. Not sure if you have purchased an X-Sport yet but i would be willing to sell it. Hit me up on PM. I have added the basic performance mods and absolutely love it. LMS is the way to go to satisfy you need for speed and more power. My co-worker has the same truck as me and couldn't believe how much better my truck drove compared to his stock truck. A week later he ordered the same mods and is in the process of building a clone! Main reason I want a 2017. Mine has 25K is pampered and garage kept.

      Hello,

      Need a lil help. Recently purchased my first Ford & lookin for some help with mod parts. First, a CAI. I am familiar with several brands. Any suggestions ? I like Air Raid. Next, a tuner. I used to have a Dodge Charger & a Diablo Sport Predator was very popular. What's a good one for a 2015 Explorer Sport ? Any & all help is appreciated

      Hello, @MrWickd, there's quite a few threads about CAI in the forums. Here's one link http://www.explorerforum.com/forums/index.php?threads/tuning-options-for-2016-sport.437308/ - you might find some cool information there. I personally have a K&N CAI in my 2016 EXP Platinum. I should have read the forums first but I'm satisfied with the performance. Also, @peterk9 is a big help around here, too. I'm sure he can lead you to a few threads and/or opinions about CAI. The one that everyone seems to like is Livernois CAI and tune kits.

      Anyways, welcome and good luck!

      I have merged your thread with this one on a similar topic. The posts on a CAI are mixed with a few members going back to stock. There seems to be a consensus that a CAI combined with a 'tune' makes a difference. Livernois seems to be the popular supplier of choice. The best advice I can give is to familiarize yourself with the Forum's 'Search' feature (upper right) as there are several threads on both mentioned topics.

      Quick question,
      Looking to get an air intake for my 14 X Sport. Which offers the best performance and gains?
      K&N 69-3531TS
      Airaid 402-260

      Thanks

      There are several threads on cold air intakes (CAI). These can easily be found in the "Modified" sub forum using the Forum's 'Search' feature at the upper right. There are mixed reviews on these and some have eventually gone back to stock. As for gains, it seems there are no mileage gains and in some have noticed decreased mpg. There does seem to be a slight gain in engine noise and little to no HP gains. Best option seems to be a CAI plus a 'tune'. Here is just one such thread; http://www.explorerforum.com/forums/index.php?threads/which-cold-air-intake-system-is-better.446547/

      Hello guys/gals, glad to be part of this forum. I have a 2017 Explorer XLT with the 200A package.

      Do any of you guys have or know of any good exhaust mods for this 3.5L V6 non eco boost engine??

      When I floor it it sounds nice but would love a deeper sound!

      Any suggestions on this or other mods to do? I’m all ears (eyes)!

      Welcome to the Forum.:wave:
      Your thread was merged with this one. Check out post #24. Becoming familiar with the 'Search' feature can go a long way in finding existing threads/post. The mod question has been asked many times here. Most exhaust threads have to do with the 'Sport' model with the Ecoboost engine. Here is one on Magnaflow; Magnaflow exhaust
