Golden! +1 the engine bay is just as important as the car! BTW are those Macs?

Thanks, with the ceramic coating they're not very hot. After my 42 mile hike from work I popped the hood and you can keep your hand about 1/2" from the tubes.

I use engine shine by gunk, works great! But there are many different products out there. Now that you have a new CAI a clean engine bay will really make it "pop"

Funny. Not to be critical, but that's the first thing I noticed also. Keep up with it regularly and it's easy to keep looking good. Either that or wait for the CAI to get dirty so everything matches.

I would throw the stock intake back on and wash under the hood with the engine degreaser at your local carwash. This is to get rid of all the loose dirt and grime. After it is completely dry and the engine is cool, spray tire shine foam on everything under the hood and shut it. After about an hour you'll be ready to put your cai back on. This will make it easy to keep up with. I have a chamoi for the exterior and one for the jams and under the hood.

I would cover the intake filter with a plastic bag then spray 30% simple green on (not hot but stopped) engine rinse lightly with h2o avaoid spraying the obvious. Turtle wax ice can be used on black plastic and is the wax I prefer....oh, it will look good after you clean it

Well first things first I need to get the engine bay cleaned up. But after that I was thinking about an x-pipe or maybe switch over to some appearance mods

So it's not because it's not sealed right with the clamps or anything? That's normal right

I know how it goes and tis' the season! Keep me in the loop on what you're going to go with, we have a wealth of information here on site (Videos, Reviews, Installation Guides) to help get you into the best fit. The appearance mods are a different story as there's many different ways to personalize your car. We have a slew of Pre-Painted Parts here that would complement it nicely!

nathannnn-This is normal and it would be even more audible if you were to have a throttle body installed. Like what's being said give it a once over just to make sure that your connections are good to go. If you're not throwing any check engine lights I'm sure all is well!

Yeah man it's normal. You don't have all that plastic covering the filter anymore so you can hear the air going in. Also if you listen when you turn the car off it will shoot the air out

Okay so I've decided on going with a new pipe to compliment the intake. I'm looking for a budget x or h pipe that will give me the best results as far as hp gains and sound. Any suggestions?

MM,

You're going to see primarily X-Pipes for the 3.7l-They're going to flow somewhat better than the H's as well as give the car a pretty throaty sound.

You can either go with a Catted or Off-Road (Catted will use catalytic converters while the Off-Road will delete them) For the most aggressive sound as well as performance I would recommend BBK's Off-Road X pipe which will attach to your factory manifolds. You're going to notice that we have Shorty X pipes as well, these are going to attach to Long Tube Headers

02 Sensor extensions are not required as well as a Tuner but I would definitely recommend taking a look at the Bama SF4/X4!

Hope this helps! Let me know if you have any questions and I'm here to help!

-Alex

Alex, I don't have a huge budget right now for stuff like that but I do remember seeing a Ford Racing X Pipe on the AM website that was doable. Do you have anything on that one?

I just got the Ford racing x-pipe. As soon as my car gets back from the dealers I'm putting it on. From my understanding it is more sound than performance but you will still get some small gains. Not as much as an offroad x pipe but it is much cheaper and doesn't mess with your emissions.

It looks like Grabber beat me to it and is sounds like you're referring to Ford Racing's Cut & Clamp X pipe. Definitely a great way to go! This will reuse your cats as well and should be good for a nice bump in noise as well as some additional flow!

Let me know if you have any other questions on it, I'm always here to help!
