It was very easy to install this air filter and I've noticed a small increase in fuel performance.

i recently purchased a stainless Gibson catback exhaust for my 1998 Ford Explorer with a 4.0 SOHC. i noted a few things during installation. One was that the fit of the muffler to the cat was not the best. As it was a dual inlet muffler, the kit comes with a flange on one side with a flare and on the other side, a straight pipe that slides over the cat pipe. Neither side sealed up well and moisture leaks out there even after the bolts and clamp are tight. Secondly, i noticed that the clamp included with the kit was a 2 1/2" for one side on the front of the muffler, when in fact, a 2 1/4" clamp is the right size. And finally, i have had some problems with exhaust clearance on the right rear shock. i was only able to get the exhaust in far enough for 1/8" of clearance on the shock and it vibrates against it frequently. Otherwise, i like the tone and the power. My truck even seems to run better with this system than it did with the stock one.

The installation was not that difficult although I did have to drill a hole for my temp sensor which I was not expecting so it took longer than expected. My truck actually runs quieter/cleaner at idle and when I accelerate. I do get a nice purr when I hit the gas but it's not a load overpowering sound anymore. So far so good. Too early to tell regarding gas mileage.
