New here, but I have a 2001 Ford Escape V6 4X4. Weapon-R Dragon intake with k&n filter, gibson cat-back exhaust, catco highflow cat, accel coil, wires, bosch iridium plugs. Brembo rotors and Hawk brake pads. Computer re-programmed. PIAA super-white headlights. Leather interior, kenwood head unit, 6 speakers and a sub. Some pics from last weekend when I was mudding. Goodyear Wrangler Silentarmor tires-235/75R16s. Gonna add a bar in the front with lights, adjustable suspension for lifting when offroad then lowering when on the highway. I've hit a deer and a coyote with it, still looks great. Alternator went out on my on the highway in the middle of nowhere. $657. Also have a bad sway bar link and a small crack in the right front half shaft. Another $400 I don't have yet. 89000miles on it.

Yeah I love it, hardly had anything go wrong with it. It runs 0-60 high 5's. I've actually taken a Porsche Boxter with it, though thats not saying much.

The 3.0 is a punchy little engine and I have to say even with no mods it never disapoints.
I can imagine with the mods you've done it breathes a little better and no doubt wakes up a few extra horses. :shades:

Thanks y'all. The thing I really like about my Escape is that it has the Dana center differential and the switch between auto 4wd and full time 4wd.

Thanks. I'm gonna wash the mud off this weekend, and I'll take some pic of the exterior and interior. I want to replace the mach audio subwoofer with a better one, but I don't know what size to get. Any ideas?

It was just a change from 235/70/16 so only up 5 in the aspect ratio, so maybe 1/2 mile per gallon difference. Still only get 15-17 mpg city. I'll post some new pics later today with it all cleaned up.

EDIT: Here are the updated pics:
