Boosts Horsepower. An AEM Brute Force Cold Air Intake will improve the airflow into your 5.0L F-150's engine for more power and better gas mileage all while filtering out harmful power robbing particles. This AEM CAI kit completely replaces your Coyote powered F-150 restrictive factory air box, intake tube and paper filter element with a Dryflow filter assembly for an increase of 8.0hp @ 5000 RPM.

No Tune Required. Unlike other Cold Air Intakes on the market for the 5.0L F-150 the AEM Brute Force CAI does not require a computer re-tune. The engineers at AEM designed, tuned, and dyno-tested this cold air intake to improve your truck's power using the stock tune.

Reusable Dry Air Filter. AEM Dryflow air filters are made from an oil-free, synthetic filter media for outstanding air flow, filtration, and performance. They are washable and re-usable and can be used for up to 100,000 miles before servicing (depending on driving conditions).

Built-in Filter Minder. AEM designed their Brute Force Cold Air Intake with a Built-in Filter Minder that alerts you with just a glance of the dial when your air filter is in need of maintenance.

Durable Construction. The AEM Brute Force Cold Air Intake is manufactured in the USA of high quality materials that are built to last. The intake tube is made out injected molded high density polyethylene tube for long lasting durability and to provide an increase in horsepower and airflow.  

Lifetime Warranty. AEM is so confident in their cold air intake system that it is covered by a Lifetime Limited Warranty.

Easy Bolt-on Installation. AEM Cold Air Intake kits are designed to install with just basic hand tools. No extra modifications or special tools are required for an easy 1 hour installation, however cutting the inner fender liner is required.

Recommended Upgrade. Even though a re-tune is not required for operation, AmericanMuscle recommends a custom tune with a F-150 Handheld Tuner to reprogram the vehicles computer (ECU) to get the best performance possible out of this cold air intake.

Application. This AEM Black Brute Force Cold Air Intake with Coolant Reservoir is specifically designed to fit the 2011 to 2014 F-150s equipped with the 5.0L engine and does not require re-tuning the vehicles computer for operation.

Technical Note. The AEM Cold Air Intake is not legal for use in California or other states adopting California emission standards.

does it help the engine rumble a little louder?


  • Hello! This AEM Brute Force Cold Air Intake will help you F150 breath better. Freeing up the intake and allowing the engine to draw in more air which will eventually be expelled as exhaust. So while this intake might add a little exhaust tone, changing the exhaust to aftermarket will definitely give you a nice rumble!

    Nice intake

    This intake gave a nice boost in throttle response and was a relatively straight forward install
