Silencer delete

Well I took my silencer out and I have a fram filter in there from the previous owner. Should I upgrade to a K&N? Or would it be the same?

K&n is always better but CAI is deff the way to go.. You will be able to tell a little with the new filter but a lot with a cai

Yeah I know a CAI would be the best way to go but right now I don't have enough for one, but I do get a good discount from K&N filters
And the way my MAF is and the way it looks on the CAI looks way different. Would I need to get a new MAF?

I pulled up the diagram on ALLDATA and I think it's fine. I think the big plate in the front of it threw me off

It's kinda a pain but you can work it in there.. But a kn filter would help.. Better airflow..

A cold air intake on these motors doesn't add "a lot" of power.

Figure out what exactly what you want to do with the car in the long run. If you plan on any type of forced induction that cai will be useless to you or even if you plan on a windstar swap.

There is a lot of money to be saved if you plan out your mods for the long run.
