    Custom Hood Scoops

    That's where you got me wrong. I never came on here saying I know these EcoBoost motors. That's all you! Like I said before, i was just going to play with the EcoBoost until i put a package together to drop in. I am extremely familiar with turbo motors. It wouldn't take me long to learn this...

    Custom Hood Scoops

    It's ok buddy, your a legend in your own mind. Your the EcoBoost King! I don't need to be a legend here and don't have the time to waste going back and fourth with you. When you get a chance look up SHANE TECKLENBURG or Shane T. Performance out of Huntington Beach, Cal. He's tuning Funny Cars...

    Custom Hood Scoops

    The ram air hood Is not for cooling, it's there to force cool air into the intake. Anytime you can get your engine to breathe forced cool air is great for performance. I had a 3000hp twin turbo race car running in the 6's @ 228mph. My crew chief is one of the top tuners in the racing community...

    Custom Hood Scoops

    My fiberglass hood is definitely lighter then the stock hood and i guarantee the ram air forcing cool air into the cold air intake would improve performance over the heat extractor. All you need to do is from in drop in a lower free flow thermostat. Your extraction hood looks good but I'll stick...

    PPE custom downpipes for the Explorer Sport

    Well we built a 1600hp motor for my ex-partners SRT8 Cherokee and it runs 8's all day in the 1/4. We went through transfer cases, rear cases and axles. Now it's strong as an ox! Trial and error. I already know fords unit won't hold up to power. Nothing is impossible. When someone tells me no, I...

    PPE custom downpipes for the Explorer Sport

    Not sure yet but looking into it. I used to have a race team out here with a twin turbo car running 6.18 @ 228mph in the 1/4 . I will get this truck moving. PPE used to do my dually 4x4 duramax. I used to run their tune they ran the drags with on the street. At irwindale I would smoke Z06's and...

    PPE custom downpipes for the Explorer Sport

    I will do some looking into, my buddy owns PPE but I had no idea they were working on the EcoBoost pipes. They used to supply me with all my Duramax, Dodge and Ford parts. Now I'm looking to go crazy with my Explorer Sport. I used to own a Speed Shop here in So.Cal. I will keep you guys updated...

    Custom Hood Scoops

    Thanks, I have never come across another Explorer with one on it. I always get asked where I got it.

    Has anyone installed an Amerihood Ram Air hood?

    Not sure who told you that the ram air doesn't come into effect until 115mph. They are wrong. Any time you can feed cold air directly into your intake will make a big difference in performance. Heat extraction is nice addition too.

    Custom Hood Scoops

    Here are pictures of my hood on my 14' Explorer. Hood is by AmeriHood. Fit and finish are top grade and underneath is the same clean gelcoated finish. All factory parts fit perfect, washers, latch and hinges. Super clean! I also just picked up their first hood they made for my 17' Sport. Still...

    5th Gen Explorer With LED Light Bar

    Just a few pictures. The painted is on my 14' and the new one is for the 17' Sport. They almost look the same. This at least gives you an idea of what they look like. I'm extremely picky and the quality is premium fit and finish. I like to give kudos where its deserved. Here's a phone#...

    5th Gen Explorer With LED Light Bar

    Yes, the hood is from Amerihood. It's actually a real ram air hood. Underneath it's open right on top of where the airbox is. I had a cold air intake on it. The bottom is also finished as nice as the top. All factory are made to fit right on, washers, latches, hinges. I just actually just got...

    5th Gen Explorer With LED Light Bar

    I had a 14' Explorer before and I installed a 25" single row light bar in the opening between the the grille and the bumper. I bought a 17' Sport now and I'm going to attempt the same thing. I removed the front left wheel and removed the fender liner and ran the wires for the switch through...

    New/Used Ford Explorer Purchase, which option?

    They are two different vehicles, one is a Hybrid with a 2.0 and the other has a 400Hp engine. Fuel mileage is going to be completely different. The ST handles and brakes better and is great if you like to feel the road. It depends on her driving style!
