TRANSCRIPT

I’m Justin from AmericanMuscle.com, and this is our detailed breakdown of the JLT Series 3 cold air intake system for the 2005-2009 Mustang GT. The first thing I notice when taking a look at this intake is the sheer size of everything, from the tube itself all the way down to that air filter, that’s going to be the big distinguishing factor with this intake versus some of its competitors. The series 3 features a massive 110mm MAF housing, which is one of the largest on the market today. This total combination is going to equate to more horsepower and torque at the rear wheels, and increase throttle response. The JLT features a 4.5” molded ABS plastic tube which is great at resisting engine bay heat especially when paired with that included heat shield. A nice thing about the series 3 is that it incorporates the MAF sensor housing right into the intake tube itself, eliminating the need for excess couplers or housings which can actually hurt your air flow. Due to the very large size of this JLT intake, running a performance tune is an absolute must, but before we go installing the intake and uploading our tune, we want to get a baseline number from our 06 GT back there just to see where we stand. With our baseline run out of the way we’re going to get to installing our intake which should only take us about an hour using standard hand tools. As I mentioned earlier, in order to properly run this JLT intake you will need a performance tune, we’re going to use our custom Bama tune which should really make the most out of our kit. This is going to do a couple of things for us, this is going to optimize our spark timing, adjust your variable cam timing, and get those air/fuel ratios right in the sweet spot. You’re also going to see improved throttle response as well. With our intake installed and our tune uploaded, let’s turn the rollers one more time and see how well the Series 3 performed on our GT. So our baseline run with our 2006 GT gave us 277 horsepower and 282 ft/lbs of torque. With our JLT installed, we put down 300 horsepower and 316 ft/lbs of torque making for a peak gain of 23 horsepower over our baseline numbers, and gains of 30 horsepower and 32 ft/lbs of torque throughout the curve. The Series 3 from JLT is for the Mustang enthusiast with all out performance in mind, the price is very competitive with other cold air intake kits on the market today, especially when you factor in how well it performs. Of course the added need for a tune will factor in to the overall price in the long run, but if you’re looking to get the most out of your naturally aspirated or supercharged 3 valve 4.6 motor, then the Series 3 is definitely worth checking out.
