might be a dumb question, so I apologize... but what is it and what does it do?
Its basically a tube that goes from the intake tube near the TB and travels to ur firewall port and it has a special section that has a rubber seal of some sort that makes it so only sound travels through the tube and not air. The point of it is to make the engine sound enter the cabin more so u feel and hear the engine when u drive. In all honesty it made my engine sound awesome from outside looking at the engine. And in the cabin it sounds awesome too. You hear the engine way better. If u can get one i would buy it and install it. Its pretty nifty

Yeah you're going to want to snatch one up from a buddy with a 5.0 because i wanted to do this a while back so i called ford for the part. It would've come out to about $100 for the sound tube alone. If you can find one for $20 then take a shot at it, but otherwise, it's not worth it if you're only looking to drop money on performance gains

You can also do the same thing with a CAI install. The stock air intake system has a large "muffler" (sound deadener) on the side of the air tube that connects the air cleaner filter box to the throttle body. If you remove this box, you'll get the same results, as this muffler deadens the sound. Even the 5.0's have a sound deadner on their stock intake tubes. Amazed me why Ford put the sound deadener on the tube, then plumbed a "sound tube" to the firewall so the driver could hear the sound!

Three options: Get a 5.0 sound tube. Be sure to get all the parts. You'll also need a PVC 90 degree elbow to install onto your stock intake tube.

Get a CAI

Cut off the sound deadner box and fiberglass the hole it will leave, then paint the tube. This basically creates your own CAI, only with the stock air filter box instead of an open cone type filter.

If you want to install the sound tube from a 5.0 onto your V6, watch this youtube:

So what i did was remove the vacuum line from the engine to the intake and add a small breather filter to the engine port, then i attached the Sound tube to that Vacuum port on the Intake. Its in the same spot the 5.0's have it so it works perfect. I mounted it all the way the 5.0's have it and everything. It works and sounds awesome to me.
