I am new to this site but not new to explorers. I have 2 1992 Eddie Bauers. Well I am new to wrenching on them as all I do is basic maintenance and drive. Well first off where is the MAF? Also how do you clean it. The K&N filter, does that go in the airbox where the stock one does. Anything I have to do besides oil it? What is an IAC and how do you clean that. Is there anything I have to do as preventive measures, or anything I can do to help this explorer out. My white one doesn't have the same pep as my moms gold one of the same year. Plus her's has 193k and mine has less than 100k on the Jasper reman. Thanks, Tyler

Ok so I got that K&N filter worked out and installed. But it would be nice to clean the maf as I heard, need to know where it is first though. And any other performance from cleaning parts I should know about.

if you changed the stock air filter, you're all ready pretty close.

locate the airbox (where the air filter is) and the air intake tube (says Caution: Fan) the MAF is screwed into the silver tube between those. it has a plug on it with 4 wires going into it.

..This is a pic of your engine bay...The green circle is your maf and the red circle is your throttle body...;)

...Here is a pic of my setup...The KKM filter pretty much sits just above the bottom half of the stock airbox...It takes a whole 10 minutes for the swap to stock for the smog test..:thumbsup:

..For California Only...

...Aftermarket air filters are not C.A.R.B. certified...This is from KKM...

Is the True-Rev Induction kit emissions legal in my area?

The True-Rev Induction Kit is designed for competition use and though it does not eliminate any required emissions devices, it does not carry any emissions exemption certificates. The bottom line is check with your state testing stations for guidelines on engine modifications. Our Kits are not C.A.R.B. certified.

...And here is a link for C.A.R.B...;)
