    WO-HOO! 17.34 quarter mile in an AWD!

    Thanks again Alec, I most certainly trust your opinion. I guess for right now I'm looking at just getting a Superchip (supposed 21hp 32ft.lb for $230, compared to the Hypertech Programmer thats about the same but $330) and some kind of underdrive pulleys. I found some in the Ford Racing...

    WO-HOO! 17.34 quarter mile in an AWD!

    Thanks for the tip Alec. Hey, as I said I've been looking through catalogs and on websites all day figuring out my strategy entitled "Project Xtreme Killer" :) heh heh heh... Ok, my latest find sounds good to me. Looking in the Ford Racing Performance Parts 2002 catalog, in the 5.0L...

    WO-HOO! 17.34 quarter mile in an AWD!

    I have the stock 3.73 LS gears. Man, what a difference a day makes! I am so pumped!! I've been looking at stuff all day for my Explorer. Hey, I have a question. Will a 285/60 R18 tire fit on my Explorer? Heh heh, if so, my friend has a set of 99 Lightning wheels. I know I know, the...

    WO-HOO! 17.34 quarter mile in an AWD!

    Your friends 4cyl ranger was also like half the weight of an explorer, and was also likely 2wd, certainly not AWD. Don't worry, I'll beat em next time. :)

    WO-HOO! 17.34 quarter mile in an AWD!

    I don't really know what the Xtremes had, but the one at least looked like it had some mods. I think I need some underdrive pulleys and maybe a Hypertech Power Programmer...yeah...that should give me the edge...heh heh heh.... look out Xtremes...

    WO-HOO! 17.34 quarter mile in an AWD!

    Ok maybe its nothing special, but thats my best of three runs in my 2000 Limited AWD 5.0. Not bad I'd say, considering Explorer Express quotes the stock Explorers at 18.1 and all i have done to mine is a KKM True-Rev and a 3" Flowmaster Y-pipe and exhaust. It sure is fun to run it. My...

    For all those fogged altezzas...theres a solution

    Don't even bother with trying to put silicone around them to seal them yourself. The silicone seeps down into the lense which looks very ugly. Sure, you can seal em up that way, but then you end up with ugly silicone around the edges. So take your pick, nice, clean lenses filled with...

    F-150 Lightning wheels on an Explorer..

    Those rims may look ok on some Explorers, but personally I don't want chrome wheels. I've been looking around, and I think maybe I'll get some other SVT wheels. I know I want silver painted wheels, because chrome just won't look right on my Explorer. I found some 17x9 wheels for only $160...

    For all those fogged altezzas...theres a solution

    For anyone thinking about buying those stupid damn euro clears, do yourself a favor and don't. I've had two pairs and they both aren't sealed properly. My second pair was fine until I washed my truck, then they got filled with water. Its a shame really, I think they look nice. I even...

    F-150 Lightning wheels on an Explorer..

    Can anyone tell me for sure whether or not 18x9 Lightning wheels will fit on an Explorer? We had a new Lightning in the shop yesterday and I was looking at those things and really thought they'd look awesome on my Explorer. I know plenty of people have put 17x9 Cobra rims on Explorers...

    Where to find Carbon Fiber Altezza's besides ProCarParts.com?

    benji75, I don't think thats really the problem, I mean I see your point, but I have the chrome euros, and they still weren't sealed. I think its just because they're made in Taiwan by people making $0.02 per day that hate Americans and don't give a $h^t about the quality of products they...

    For all those fogged altezzas...theres a solution

    Well I just got my second pair of Euros from Procarparts (yeah yeah I know, but I ended up with 2 pairs for the price of 1). Anyway, I tried putting clear silicone around them, but thats not a good idea, not cosmetically anyway. While the silicone certainly will help seal, it seeps down into...

    Speedgrille pics that WORK!!

    i'm really not sure if you're opening is smaller. However, the speedgrille aluminum is fairly flexible, I mean if you needed to I suppose you could kind of bend it into place if you needed to. Otherwise just order a speedgrille insert for a Sport.

    Clearcornering stock lights?

    Yeah I'd just buy some clear corners. I paid like $60 for mine, they're so cheap nowadays.

    no I ordered the one for just a 2000 Explorer. It says XLT on the box, but XLTS and LTDs have the same bumper.

    Speedgrille pics that WORK!!

    espnfreak, my best advice is to email them or call them and ask. I'd hate for you to order the wrong one. They're nice people at truckperformance, and should reply to an email within a day or two.

    I don't know if it warms up quicker or not, I haven't had them long enough to tell really. I bought both from Truckperformance.com, and total it all cost me around $200

    Exhaust question

    The purpose of the resonator is to help keep the sound level down. If I were you, I'd run a single 2 1/4" Flowmaster 50 Deltaflow. But I'm not you am I :). 2 1/4" pipe is probably best for a 4.0L. A 40 Series will be LOUD, so don't be surprised if thats what you decide to get, you may be...

    Speedgrille pics that WORK!!

    LOL. yeah, well good news, procarparts sent me a UPS ship notification email for my new set of lights, so it looks like they stayed true to their word. The lights are scheduled for delivery on Apr 9th, and when I get em I'm gonna put some clear silicone around them just in case.
