Hi there i installed my kkm intake on my 4.0 explorer a few months ago and was wondering i installed everything like it said on the instructions. But was wondering i here everybody talking about an air silencer what is that was i suppose to take something out of the intake tube or what because it wasn't on the instructions. Thanks

I just did it so when I find a cap for the holes I will get rid of the duct tape.

are you sure its alright to do that it looks like something major that u took off.

ya when are they ever going to put out a complete intake for the 06+ explorers v6

what is the advantage of removing them?

ehhh maybe a little quiker throttle response, you know it's like more air gets into the T.B. directly and faster, but it's not like your gonna drop a second in your 0 to 60 time
it does deepen the throatness of the intake though

Thanks. Did you find caps to replace the duct tape? And has anyone heard anything about throttle body spacers for the 4th gens..are they worth it at all?

I've heard TB spacers are great separators. Separating a man from his money. Could be wrong though.

haha exactly what i've heard...just making sure I was correct!
