65mm if staying relatively stock, but go with the 70mm if planning future upgrades.

Agreed!

Although, if you're going to put a larger TB on a stock intake it's probably not the best mod at this point. That money could be spent on something better. BUT if you DO want to put it on a stock intake make sure you grind the TB opening up to the same size as the TB.

As for brands... Accufab, Ford Racing, BBK, Professional Products/Summit. All these brands work just fine. The PP/Summit brand is probably the cheapest though.

I've seen people finding the Explorer intakes for about $100 here lately due to the "cash for clunkers". That would be a decent mod.

Or, for $250, you could get new upper/lower control arms AND subframe connectors. Doesn't sound like much of a "fun" mod, but they are necessary if you want to get traction and go fast!

The BBK's are just fine, they just seem to have a habbit of "whistling" at idle and WOT. But that can be fixed.

I did the Ford Racing 70mm. I am happy with that but they are getting hard to find.
