    FYI That Cabin Air Filter was that replaced from the owners manual recommendations? Sooner/later? I recommend that whatever the owners manual says for Cabin Air Filter replacement interval Cut that in HALF......Example if manual says 20K Inspect and be ready to replace at 10K If you are in a dusty area even sooner. The cheap paper thin OEM filters and even some of the aftermarkets are not a whole lot better. My buddy's 18 Sport CAF was toast at around 5K. Mine wasn't much better at only 7,200 miles. I went with the K&N washable and a quick spray of Febreeze during install and works good and smells nice. Get a nice scent of whatever the Febreeze was for a few days after installation. With the K&N washable I will inspect again at 10K and probably every 10K after that. For the time involved might as well wash, rinse, dry and install. If anyone wants to see my photos of the pull handle I made for the K&N to make it easier to remove send me PM it is pretty simple.

    The McGuard 84551 black 1/2”-20 lug nut set including lock nuts I found on Amazon for 67.00. The caliper covers are from MGP Caliper Covers (not mpg as I wrongly stated) go to their website at www.calipercovers.com they have many options to choose from. Happy hunting.

    Sorry guys! I've been traveling and actually now a moderator for another FB Forums Group but this is still one of my favorites.

    Here's what I did today. Shout outs to Nick Olson of Olson's EcoBoost and EcoPowerParts.com. A big shout out to Car-One Tire & Auto in Hoffman Estates, IL for the install. They do great work with modifications.

    This is part 1 of 2. Hot pipes were installed and now just waiting for the dual CAI courtesy of Olson's EcoBoost and EcoPowerParts.com. Just a really short video.

    Hello Ntrain, how is your Explorer running since you indtalled the bbk throttle body? I’ve been thinking about doing the same. Does it improve the throttle response and does it make alot of noise? Also any problems with it? Thanks

    Very neat accents. The entertainment system is OEM?

    Not really inspired by anyone's. I have a friend who paints cars, so it was mostly his "eye" that determined what paint accents to do. And yes, the entertainment system is OEM.

    You're welcome! Jon actually commented a few posts further up (as well as waaaay further back in this thread when he was just starting out his mods). Click on his name and check out his profile page for more pics. His wheels especially are pretty sweet, imo.

    Runs great. More throttle response, etc.

    You can hear a little more intake noise but nothing obnoxious. No problems at all.

    Installed step bars yesterday, and now my 4 year old can climb in on her own. She loves it, and momma loves it too which is all that matters.
