    performance fuel pump 05 Ex?

    Yea I have advancetrac on. It keeps the truck from losing grip off the line, so the launch is pretty impressive. The tires still bark just a little bit at launch but that getting pushed back in your seat feeling is awesome lol.

    performance fuel pump 05 Ex?

    It's really a blast to drive. And the supercharger whine really turns heads when you punch it lol. Tuning it has been a nightmere for my tuning guy as not a pt of info is available for him to go by, so It's more or less trial and error. We are still tweaking it. I'm running 39# injectors.

    Performance calipers for OEM sized rotors?

    Whoops I screwed up. I meant to say I had R1 Concepts (Premium Cross-Drilled & Slotted) rotors. This sounds like I may have to go big brake kit. :(

    Started the blackout process

    Be careful installing the corners. I was installing mine and hit a snag so I pushed them a little and whoops. Broke off the top fin that holds the screw. Not too bad. I just did a ghetto style repair job with a large washer under the screw to still hold the light in place. ;)

    2005 Explorer 4.0l forced induction?

    Lol, more boost..... someday. The installer just wanted to make sure that there was no 'weak link' in the setup. Hmmm maybe water/meth and a smaller pulley? The cool thing is the manifold is already plumed for it if and when I decide to go that route. : )

    2005 Explorer 4.0l forced induction?

    Do you see the last pic? They turned the drive by wire housing 180 degrees and offset it to the plenuims lower left corner. Looks like they redrilled holes to hold the old body. What had been there before was a white plastic spacer block that was supposed to hold throttle cables. Those pics...

    2005 Explorer 4.0l forced induction?

    Ok so we are now underway with the install. There was a small problem with the kit as it was meant for throttle cables and my explorer has drive by wire. There was a modification made and it now is matching up fine. Here are some install pics.. By silentseal at 2011-02-05[/IMG] By silentseal...

    Front sway bar for 05' X

    Ok that's what I was looking for. Yes I was looking for better cornering, not that I am going to be racing it, lol. As for tires I put the good year triple treds on it. I guess I will spend money elsewhere!

    Front sway bar for 05' X

    http://www.suspensionconnection.com/cgi-bin/suscon/319-ford-explorer-sway-bar.html Anybody know if this is worth it. I know its a larger diameter then the original but other than that is it better that the original? Maybe there is something else out there? Any thought's would be great! David..

    2005 Explorer 4.0l forced induction?

    After having spent a few hours with my installer we decided to go with the banshee supercharger @ bansheesupercharger.com. We then found a place that sells refurbished m90's for $800 (rebuilt from the ground up and with warrenty). Basically the guys said the same thing you did, 'positive...

    Engine dress up?

    2005 Explorer 4.0l forced induction?

    Well besides waiting for an eternity for explorer express to bring to market their replacement kit, is there anyone else out there that has something to fit this motor? I did look at STS as an option but was hoping for a few more solutions. What about vortech or procharger? Thanks.

    Hid kits cheap

    I have 6000k on all the bulbs, looks real good, 8000k looks like what was previously said, ricer blue *bleh*! Dont forget that the higher you go like 8000k, 10000k, the less light you put out (lumins). But if your just looking for deep blue then by all means go higher.

    Where to mount HID ballasts?

    As for high and low, I just let them sit out of the way in a corner, not tacked down with anything, they sit there just fine. As for the fogs I used d-sided tape and put them on either side of the lower part of the radiator, no problems. Oh just make sure the fogs connections are well sealed...
