Hey Iím Justin with AmericanMuscle.com, and Iím going to be breaking down the JLT cold air intake, available in a textured black ABS plastic finish, or carbon fiber, fitting all 2011 and newer Mustang GTs. The Performance cold air from JLT is a tune only intake due to its absolutely massive 170mm diameter intake tube that does incorporate the MAF housing into the actual tube itself, making for a much cleaner look. Because this intake does not include a reducer insert like other aftermarket intakes, running a performance tune is an absolute must. Taking a closer look at the first option youíll see that JLT went with a lightweight ABS plastic for the intake tube, which will be slightly better at reducing heat soak when compared to other metal intake tubes. JLT does offer the performance in a carbon fiber version which will offer all the same performance benefits as the ABS plastic version, but with a very cool carbon fiber finish thatís sure to look great under the hood, that is of course if you donít mind spending a few extra bucks for the added bling. Included in the package youíll find the rather large power stack reusable high flow filter, ABS plastic heat shield, all the hardware and couplers, and finally the intake tube itself. The nice thing with the JLT is it does include a bung to be used with the interior sound tube, if youíre not familiar with what this is itís basically a hose which connects that bung to the firewall, and pumps all that intake noise into the cabin. If youíve already deleted this, or youíre not a fan of this, you can always use the included cap to plug everything off. Alright, in order to see how well the JLT will perform on our Coyote motor, we need to see where the car stands now, so with that said letís grab a quick baseline run using our automatic 2011 GT, and then get to work installing the intake. Removing the stock airbox and then getting the new JLT installed is something any backyard mechanic should be able to tackle in half an hour or less using basic hand tools. For automatic equipped cars, you will need to drill a half inch hole into the actual intake tube, and then use the included fitting to complete the job but really itís not a big deal. As I mentioned earlier, due to the size of the mass air flow housing on the JLT, running a performance tune is an absolute must, otherwise youíre going to trigger a check engine light, so weíre going to upload our custom Bama tune, which is going to optimize our spark timing, adjust our variable cam timing, and should ultimately get those air/fuel ratios right where they need to be. Alright with our JLT installed and our tune uploaded, letís make another pull on the Dynojet and see what kind of improvements this intake made on our 2011. Our baseline run using our automatic 2011 GT gave us 336 horsepower and 302 ft/lbs of torque, with our JLT/Bama combination, we put down 369 horsepower and 339 ft/lbs of torque, making for a peak gain of 33 horsepower over our baseline numbers, and gains of 37 horsepower and 60 ft/lbs of torque throughout the curve. The performance from the JLT is for the Mustang owner whoís looking for maximum power gains, and either has a tune installed already or plans on purchasing one along with the intake, and as always you can check out both options right here at AmericanMuscle.com

Custom Bama Tunes specific to your vehicle. When you order a tuner, you aren't just getting a tuner - you are getting the tuner and 3 dyno-tested custom Bama tunes:

  • Street (87-93 octane) - the street tune is designed as a daily driver program that focuses in on increasing mid-range power. It does give up a few HP at higher RPMs, but that's why there is a Performance file. Automatic vehicles are further enhanced by making adjustments to the transmission's shift points and firmness.
  • Performance (87-93 octane) - The Performance program is designed to add power at 3000 RPMs and higher, focusing more on the top end horsepower and all out performance driving. Timing, fuel and throttle response settings are slightly more aggressive than the street tune. This is a great track tune but also works well for daily drivers that are looking for a little more "get up and go" than the street tune. The automatic transmission settings are the same as in the street tune.
  • Race (91 - 93 octane) - The race tune will ensure the largest increase in vehicle performance. Using the highest grade of fuel available in your area is mandatory. This file is designed for "Race only Use" as the timing, fuel, and throttle response settings are very aggressive. In fact, the adjustments are so aggressive, that we do not recommend it for daily driving as it may cause your vehicle to try to jump out from a stop and easily spin the tires. Finally, with the automatics, we implement entirely new shift points and firmness settings to further enhance the all-out performance of the vehicle.

Nitrous (91-unleaded race gas) - Our nitrous option can be added to any of our previously mentioned tune options, but only for 91-octane unleaded fuel.

Easy to load; easy to restore. Not only are the custom tunes easy to load on your vehicle, it is just as easy to restore your factory settings. When you load your custom tune on the vehicle, the tuner automatically stores your vehicle's factory settings. To return the vehicle to its factory settings, just plug the tuner back in, select the option to restore the factory settings, and you're done.
