    Review & Install Video

    Hey guys, Justin with AmericanMuscle.com here with my quick overview of the Airaid modular intake tube kit available for your 2011 through 2014 EcoBoost powered F150. In this short video I'm going to talk about some of the benefits of running this intake tube here from Airaid, what you're going to be looking at as far as overall basic construction, and then finally what it takes to get this thing in place. Honestly, guys, the install is going to be very simple very straightforward here. As you can see, you're really only dealing with a few clamps. We'll call it one out of three wrenches on the difficulty meter with a little bit more detail coming up later on. This is a relatively small mod from Airaid, guys, I'll give you that, but it should appeal to the EcoBoost owners out there who would like to eliminate the most restrictive part of the factory intake system without spending a whole bunch of money on a complete system. It's going to give you a small amount of power and a little bit of improvement under the hood as well as far as appearance. This is a modular system, guys, meaning you can pair it up with whatever you'd like. You can use it with the factory airbox if you'd like. You could even throw this thing in with a different aftermarket airbox of your choosing as long as it follows the same basic factory configuration or layout, essentially allowing you to create your own cold air in the process. Let's go back to the main purpose or function of this part from Airaid, and that is to eliminate the most restrictive part of your factory intake system, basically the inlet tube that resides between the airbox itself and the turbos on your 3.5 EcoBoost. This factory portion of piping actually contains a few speed bumps. You have the accordion shape portion of the tube itself, and then there's actually some interior sound baffles going on as well reducing some of the turbo noise in factory form. Both of these things are actually working against you as far as adding a restriction to your air flow and actually creating some turbulence as well which doesn't do any favors in regards to maximizing the performance or efficiency. The Airaid portion here, on the other hand, as you can see guys, is completely smooth throughout thanks to the rotomolded plastic construction. That will, again, allow for better efficiency, maybe even a little bit more performance over the factory tube it is replacing. Again, because you are removing some of those baffles that are present in the factory portion of the tube, you might get a little bit more turbo noise when this thing is installed, especially more so if you have an open element exposed air filter under the hood. Ultimately, guys, I think it sounds really cool, and it's going to be very minor at best. Let's talk power expectations when using something like this. Obviously that's always the goal when you're addressing parts in the intake system from a performance standpoint, but obviously this is a smaller mod, right, guys? Don't expect this thing to set the world on fire as far as overall gains. Sure, you're helping your efficiency. You're helping the air flow overall. You might see a small bump in power and torque and definitely maybe even a little throttle response as well. But, again, don't look for the big double digit horsepower gain from just swapping out the portion of the piping here alone. That being said, guys, pair this up with an aftermarket airbox of your choice with a better high flow filter and those numbers will certainly go up from there. You've got to keep in mind, guys, this thing is super affordable at the end of the day, especially in the land of more complete intake systems. You're actually looking at right around the mid $100 price point for this thing which is very reasonable. It's ultimately going to allow you to spend some other money on more power mods such as a tune, for instance, which is really what's going to unlock big power on your EcoBoost powered F150. If you guys don't believe me, cruise on over to some of the tune pages here on the site. We break down some Dyno numbers using different tunes. It'll really open your eyes as to what a tune is possible with on these EcoBoost F150s. Switching gears, let's quickly talk about install. As you'd imagine, guys, this thing is certainly not going to test your knowledge here. You're really only looking at a few clamps, as you can see. Removing the factory portion of the intake tube and installing the new Airaid really only requires use of an 8 millimeter socket or flat head screwdriver. Whatever you have on hand will definitely do the job. For that, we'll call it a soft one out of three wrenches on the difficulty meter, maybe 30 minutes of your time in the garage or driveway before you're all wrapped up. All right, guys, I like the modular kit here from Airaid because it does address one of the big problem areas with the factory intake system. It's going to look pretty good while doing so under the hood. And, it's not going to set your wallet back too much in the process. I do like the fact that this thing is also going to give you some options as well whether you want to use it with your factory air box or maybe go with a different aftermarket airbox of your choosing. That's my review of the Airaid modular intake tube kit which you can find for your EcoBoost right here at AmericanMuscle.com.

    Improved Intake Tube. Made to provide the link between the filter and air box, and the throttle body, of your 2011-2014 F-150’s 3.5L EcoBoost engine, the Airaid Modular Intake Tube is an affordable upgrade that puts some extra punch in your vehicle in terms of power and performance. This modular component throws open the gates to up to a 400 CFM (cubic feet per minute) increase in inflow, even without other aspiration upgrades. The tough tube is made to last a lifetime, installing super-fast and providing a high volume, smooth indraft to raise both torque and horsepower to fresh levels.

    Tuning Not Needed after Installation. No aftermarket tune is needed to run the Airaid Modular Intake Tube after installation. You can use either the factory tune, or aftermarket tunes designed to enhance other parts, with this intake tube.

    Reuses Stock Air Filter. The Airaid Modular Intake Tube does not include an air filter element. Instead, it reuses the OE air box and filter. Optionally, you can buy an Airaid Quick Fit filter and air box separately to connect to this intake tube.

    Tough Polyethylene Construction. Airaid’s Modular Intake Tube is roto-molded out of cross-linked, high-density polyethylene which is strong enough to stand up to the heat of the engine and the pressure of high inflow for many years. The exterior is black textured, to match the texturing found on many powder-coated parts. The included couplers and hump hoses are made from silicone. Finally, the clamps supplied are precision made stainless steel.

    Attaches with Regular Tools. Built for easy installation, the Airaid Modular Intake Tube is a truly modular part that bolts on in place of the factory equivalent. It comes with the hardware and clamps needed to attach it, plus instructions. The application is bolt-on and uses only ordinary car-related hand tools.

    Warranted for the Vehicle’s Lifetime. A “no-hassle” limited manufacturer's lifetime warranty applies to the Airaid Modular Intake Tube to protect your investment.

    Not CARB Legal. The Airaid Modular Intake Tube is not legal for sale or use in California. It is not CARB compliant, and, while it is generally 49-state legal throughout the rest of the United States, is also not street-legal in any locale that has adopted CARB regulations. It may be off-road and/or track legal in these locations. Elsewhere, it can be used for the track, off-roading, and on-road driving wherever you wish.

    Application. The Airaid Modular Intake Tube is specifically designed to fit the 2011-2014 3.5L EcoBoost F-150s. Please Note. This Modular Intake Tube reuses the factory air box and filter element.

    This is an outstanding addition to their cold kit. Literally took 15-20 minutes to install and finishes the look nicely. If you already have the intake and are on the fence about adding this....do it!

      Tight fit

      Seems like a quality well made product.......quite a tight fit longer to install than I figured.....has better throttle response and acceleration........worth it.
