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.

Review & Install Video

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

    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.

    Great product

    This product installed great into my car. I took out the factory equipment and everything lined up and fot great. The only thing you have to do is if you have an automatic you need to drill a hole in the pipe to add a place for one of the tubes to click into. I noticed power gains right away you just need to tune it before you drive it.

    WOW!

    It took me about an hour to install this simply because it was raining on and off. If I did it again in nice weather I could easily do it in 30 minutes or less. The noise this thing produces is intoxicating! Adds a nice growl to the exhaust and a sucking noise when you get on the throttle. It looks pretty good under the hood but the performance and sound gains are by far the best part! I have a Pypes Axleback which I thought sounded amazing before this but not she just howls when I open it up. Great product!

    Had to have this with my Boos 302 intake and BKK shorties. Loaded the Bama race tune and it is a totally different car. I highly recommend if you have the Boss 302 intake. Still need to dyno to see real gains, but feels significantly more powerful.

    Easiest way to make quick gains!

    This is a tune only cold air intake! The tubing is huge so you have to pair with a tuner. I paired my intake with a wireless Bama tuner and the results are amazing! The sound alone is almost worth the purchase. This really turns the car into a living, breathing monster, and that's with a stock exhaust. Performance wise I noticed the most horsepower gains in the car's power band, without a huge noticeable difference in torque. I know the torque is there but you just don't notice it like the horsepower. The car just pulls so much harder around 4000-6000 rpm's. The fit is good, I did have some issue trying to get the filter itself to sit on the tubing where it was supposed to be. That's probably more my mechanical prowess though. All in all one of the best things you can do for your car! Must have!

    13GT CAI with Bama Tune

    Great Product, easy to install, Noticable difference in power when Bama tune installed. First starting up there was some rough driving until warm and then the computer learned the new tune, put 50 miles on it the next day and now it runs great, definiately recomend this.

    Great Bang for the $

    Without question the new 5.0's want more air. So considering the looks and HP/TQR gains proven the JLT CAI kit was my first choice.

    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.
