Newbie first time in a Ford!
« on: October 12, 2019, 05:22:48 pm »
Picked up a 17í Explorer Sport with 11k miles a few weeks ago and Iím liking it so far. Been a Chevy guy my whole life and this is my first ford product. Tried a Grand Cherokee Summit for a few years after selling my Trailblazer SS and the Jeep was a pos. After a few weeks with this Iím already fighting the urge to mod it. Likely will have a tune and a cai before long and maybe some new wheels. I have an 800rwhp Camaro if I get to bored :-)

So far what Iíve reads been mostly positive about these things. And I love the styling. I think I can be happy with some mild bolt ons and some wheels. Whatís with the questions at the bottom and the code when I try to post?

So hereís what Iím thinking of doing.

- 93 octane tune since I already run it
- Vented blow offs because race car
- AFE cold air intake (lid version) because race car
- JLT catch can
- Aeroforce pod/ gauge
- 20x10 FR500 wheels

Debating downpipes but I donít want it to get to loud it is my daily driver/ baby hauler

Itís actually a Dana 60. 9.75Ē ring gear. Itís a beast. Car weighs 3850 without me in it so it needs to be robust to drop the clutch at 6k.
