Will an air cleaner/filtration system/housing from a 2000 4.0 v6 ford explorer fit in a 2000 5.0 v8 ford explorer?

Asked by Dec 23, 2015 at 04:02 PM about the 2000 Ford Explorer XLT

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I live in Ca, i bought v8 private sale and it has a MAC free flow air filter
without EO sticker. The only thing in the way of smog & registration,
deciding on just switching out(if confirmed possible) an OEM housing/air
filter intake system from a v6 of the same year...

Is anyone able to give thumbs up, down, or kindly offer any related
knowledge or suggestions in regards to achieving a pass in the visual
smog inspection(hopefully guaranteed) of my 2000 Ford Explorer 5.0 v8
w/ aftermarket MAC filter(no EO sticker) ASAP

Probably not. I'd suggest going to a junkyard and get the correct air cleaner assembly. I don't live in California but I've heard from those who do, on this forum, that California is very strict about emissions equipment. It has to be exactly correct or you can't pass inspection. HTH. -Jim

Anything not original in California is considered 'tampering' and will not pass. I speak from experience, I live in Calif and indeed, they are very strict. And for reason. CARB and especially SCAQMB (South Coast Air Quality management Board) IVAQMB (Inland Valley) is a non-negotiable issue

I am referring to a photo of the engines from a 4.0 and 5.0 for the year 2000 taken while inside the bay of the explorer. Short answer, no. Different setup.
