Description
More Usable Horsepower. Gain up to 24 or even 30 RWHP throughout your entire power band with a JLT intake and a custom tune on your 2011 (or newer) GT. Putting 30 more ponies to the pavement doesn't get any easier, faster, or more affordable than this. Plus, your GT will also respond faster with a noticeable improvement in throttle response for better driveability and quicker launches.

107mm MAF Housing. This JLT cold air intake kit has a unique design that incorporates 107mm MAF housing right into the tube for a clean look (MAF not included). Plus, a removable cap over the interior sound tube allows you to choose whether you want to hear the added growl from your new intake or not.

Heat Shield Included. The JLT Performance Cold Air Intake includes a vacuum formed ABS plastic heat shield that not only looks great, but blocks out excessive under hood engine heat at low speed and idle that can rob you of power. All JLT kits now also include our water blocker plug insert for no worries about water getting to the filter.

Money Saving Reusable Filter. This JLT cold air intake kit comes complete with a high flow reusable S&B brand air filter. So that means there is no need to go out and buy a new filter every few thousand miles. Now you can just clean the filter, re-oil it, save money, and go!

Required Upgrade. Installation of this Cold Air Intake will require the use of a Mustang Handheld Tuner to reprogram the vehicles computer (ECU) for operation.

Application. This JLT Cold Air Intake is specifically designed for use on the 2011-2014 5.0 GT Mustang with either a manual or automatic transmission. Requires a new computer tune. Automatic equipped Mustangs will require drilling an extra hole into the induction tube for proper installation.

Install Note: When installing the filter on the air tube, please be sure not to slide the air filter down too far on the tube as it may cause surging issues.

Hey I’m Justin with AmericanMuscle.com, and I’m 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 you’ll 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 that’s sure to look great under the hood, that is of course if you don’t mind spending a few extra bucks for the added bling. Included in the package you’ll 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 you’re not familiar with what this is it’s basically a hose which connects that bung to the firewall, and pumps all that intake noise into the cabin. If you’ve already deleted this, or you’re 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 let’s 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 it’s 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 you’re going to trigger a check engine light, so we’re 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, let’s 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 who’s 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

  • This won't fit properly on the 2010 GT. Make sure you are selecting the filter for 2010 GT at the top of your search page to display all the ones compatible with your Mustang. If you have any questions or need any help, don't hesitate to contact us!

Washing? With owning a 2013 how do you go about washing your vehicle with any cold air intake. I have the jlt of course but as you know on the 2013 GT the factory hood scoop are functional and didnt want to take the chance of messing up the maf sensor. Can you wash and not worry or do people bag the intake? Thanks

Dickerson

  • The JLT CAI comes with a hood vent seal to keep all the water out of the way of your CAI/filter while still allowing heat to escape the engine bay. If you purchased this kit from AM and did not receive the insert, please give us a call so we can make sure one gets sent out for you! You won't need to worry about washing or driving your Mustang with this insert installed. Hope this helps!

    My husband asked for this for Father's day. It took him no time to put it in. After ordering an updated tune from Lund, he was off. No really noticeable difference in horsepower that we can tell, it is already close to 500hp, but can tell a little difference. My husband is happy, so I am happy.

    Easy mod. Excellent gains you can hear and feel

    I was previously running my 2012 GT with a Custom Bama Race Tune. My only other performance mod was an axle back Flowmaster Super 40 series exhaust. When I installed this JLT intake and loaded the new custom Bama Race Tune, I could instantly hear the difference when I started the car. Once I got this thing out on the freeway and on some open back roads, I could feel the gains. I have not dyno'd yet but I will assure you the 20 to 30 HP gain is pretty accurate. A friend told me a CAI will also change the sound of the exhaust, which I was wanting to replace, anyways. After opening my Mustang up to full throttle a few times, I'm starting to change my mind on that. The custom tune I was running provided gains that were noticeable. Now, the JLT intake paired with a new custom tune makes this car drive and sound like a beast. Also, the installation was absolutely as simple as could be. I've never installed a CAI before or done much of anything on a car except oil changes and tire rotations. It took me 30 minutes maybe. Loading the new Bama Race Tune took longer than installing the intake. The install video on the American Muscle site, along with the included instructions, tells you everything you need to know.

    JLT Intake

    This was the easiest thing I've done thus far on my car. Nice little boost of power that is noticeable even though I was tuned prior to this there was still a gain that could be felt. This along with my x-pipe and muffler deletes make the radio obsolete...the sounds of the car are AMAZING!

    Great product! Looking for your first mod? this is the way to go, gains are phenomenal for such a simple replacement! Wakes up your car instantly. Not only does it give your power gains but it looks great under the hood. Definitely recommend.

    JLT Cold Air Kit 2013 GT

    There is no doubt this air kit increased power,,, especially through first gear. The car moved much quicker through the tach. But a few comments. #1 I was told another tune would be needed besides the 93 Octane Performance tune I have with my Bama.You do not. This tune works for this mod with no error lights. #2 I could not get the sound tube back on the new air kit. It took me a long time of attempts and I eventually just removed it. But, it is a much cleaner look without it.. so call it a good thing. #3 When you start your car you may hear a whistle, or a supercharger type whistle, At first I thought I had a vacuum leak when in fact it is actually the air being sucked through the new filter. #4 also when you start your car you will find that it runs rough. This will go away as the computer relearns the new settings. #5 make sure you have the proper alan wrench to remove the screws from the scensor of the stock air kit. I have many alan wrenchs and they were either too big or small. I had to use pliers to remove the screws. So... in a nut shell this is my experience. Your car will be a different car with the tune and the air kit. It jumps to life!

    Overall i would say this is by far the best intake to get. Everything fits perfect and even fits with throttle body spacer. The intake kit does require a tune but still is better then a non tune intake. Has the option to retain the sound tube, or can be capped off and removed such as i did. You can still hear the intake but isnt overpowering or annoying. All in all i would buy this intake again if i had to do it over.

    Great Value and Performance

    Very easy installation. Fit was a bit tight to get the spacer/wall installed but it fit snuggly once it was in. I will probably delete the noise tube but it sounds good right now. After the tune and JLT intake were installed, there was a noticeable difference in the power band as well as a much meaner growl to the motor/exhaust. Best bang for your buck right here!
