Review & Installation Video

Review & Install Video

The Airaid MXP Series oiled filter intake is available for any 2015 or newer 3.5 L EcoBoost owner looking to upgrade from the stock air box to one of the most efficient intake systems on the market with an oiled filter as opposed to a dry one, all while picking up a slightly improved throttle response and even a small increase in power and fuel economy. The installation, as you can imagine, is extremely straightforward and will get one out of three wrenches on our difficulty meter, which we'll talk more about later on. The factory inlet on your EcoBoost does a pretty good job of bringing in air from outside the engine bay and the MXP option we have here keeps that same design in mind. Only difference here is Airaid focused on improving the tubing and air box as well as the filter itself to really optimize air performance. They've designed the system to completely replace the factory intake from the manifold and turbo down. Using this option from Airaid, it doesn't even require a tune. Speaking of which, this quarter intake system from Airaid will utilize what is known as a speed density instead of a mass air flow meter, which is why you get to hang back on getting it tuned. The speed density in this kit will make changes to your computer on the fly, whereas the MAF would typically require you to get a new tune in order to make the changes necessary with the new cold air intake system or any other power adder mod. This system saves you a lot of hassle doing all of that, so all you have to do is bolt it right up in a few minutes and go. Definitely one big plus with this system here. Now as far as power is concerned, Airaid lets us know that on their Dino they made about 24 horsepower on a stock 3.5. Now with a tune you can definitely maximize gains like that. With just an intake alone, I would probably expect high single-digit gains at best. You will, however, definitely see a slight increase in your drive-by wire response and you might even pick up a mileage gain or two as far as fuel economy is concerned. This one is going to be 50 state legal, basically meaning for the guys out there in emissions-restrictive states, such as California, you're in the clear to pick this one up and install it with no problems. Moving along to materials on construction, this system includes a one piece roto-molded airbox which will be a noticeable improvement over the factory option by completely housing the intake filter for not only more filtration but also to keep out excess engine heat. The new intake tube is constructed of cross-linked high-density polyethylene to maintain proper air flow with a built-in velocity stack. The filter itself is a Synthamax oiled filter, meaning it is washable and reusable with a layer of filter oil. The oil helps to collect any microscopic dust particles to prevent them from being sucked into the engine. It's made with premium non-woven synthetic materials and wire mesh outing layers to improve filtration. This thing actually saves you some money in the long run because you don't have to run out and replace it every few thousand miles like your cheap stock paper element filter. You can expect to pick it up for just north of the $400 mark, making it fall right at the higher end of the no tune required intakes, but keep in mind you're looking to maximize the potential of your 3.5., a tune will greatly improve its performance. Now just to be clear, all 3.5 EcoBoosts do not require a tune as far as Intakes are concerned because they all utilize speed density. Just something to keep in mind moving forward. This is one of the options that's a full replacement. So for the price, you can expect a fully-optimized cold air intake design from the best, most efficient performance. Switching gears over to the install portion of the video, again this is definitely gonna be a plus with the one out of three wrenches on our difficulty meter. Well, 30 minutes at the maximum in the driveway at home with a few common hand tools like a ratchet and socket set and a flat head screwdriver. The first thing you wanna do is of course disconnect the negative terminal on your battery. That's always first things first for a safety precaution. Start by installing the insert coupler into the air box from Airaid and insert the top grommet into the open hole. Bolt down the inlet tube to the wider opening in the side of the airbox. Drop the whole assembly into the engine bay and bolt the inlet tube to the top of the radiator shroud. Then bolt the entire air box to the side of the firewall. Put the new seal over the center and drop it into the tubing along with the bolt that holds it down. Install the couplers and clamps to the intake tubing on each end. Drop the tubing into place in the engine bay, clamping it down to the other tubing inside the engine and to the air box itself. Drop the filter into the air box with a clamp and tighten it down to secure it. Peel off the backing on the heat shield cover and apply it to the metal. Then bolt that down to the top of the open airbox. Reconnect all harnesses and connections and you're good to go. Just to wrap things up here, if you're the owner of a 2015 or newer 3.5 EcoBoost F-150, you should check out the Airaid MXP Series cold air intake with the Synthaflo oiled filter in a red, which is available right here at americantrucks.com.

More Power. This Airaid MXP Series cold air intake can bump up your truck's power and make it more effective at whatever you want done.

The kit is made from durable components and boosts horsepower and efficiency all in one.

Tuning Optional. Computer tuning is strictly optional with this Airaid intake kit. You can improve the benefits even further by tuning up your truck, but you'll see benefits either way. This kit gives you the option, which means you can avoid tuning if you like while still having a functional truck after the installation.

Synthaflow Filter. This Airaid MXP Series cold air intake comes with a SynthaFlow oiled filter that captures dirt and dust down to 2 microns. That's incredible and helps to get the air as clean as possible. The filter features many layers of oiled cotton followed by nano woven fabric to capture all the smaller bits. It can be washed, so you don't have to buy additional filters later on.

Corrosion Resistant. Plastic, aluminum and stainless steel all go into this filter. The stainless steel is used on the hardware and the clamps of this kit. The plastic makes up the majority of the body, including the box and the intake tube. The aluminum is used for the plate shielding on this kit.

High quality intake. Not for sure about a power increase, but the sound increase alone is worth the money. The instructions were very detailed. Installation was a breeze.

I have an 16 f150 with Hyperteck tuner if I install Airaid cold air intake do I need a different tune?

DavidZ

  • Hello! You should check to see if your tuner is already setup to work with a cold air intake. If it is, you would not need a new tune for The Airaid MXP Series Cold Air Intake - SynthaFlow Oiled Filter.

    Easy Installation

    Over the years I had installed three KandN FIPK kits, thought this time I would give the Airaid MXP a try, looked good and good recommendations. It was a very straightforward install, excellent instructions with accurate pictures. Took me about 45 minutes from the time I cracked the hood.

    Nice add on!

    Easy install, to be honest I can't tell much gains beside the boost controller I added but I wanted it for when I do get a full tune! Plus side is you can hear the turbos spool a little louder

    Quiet with extra power

    I wanted a cold air that was quieter than the KandN or AFE that I have had in other vechicles. You can a better throttle response and some extra HP/Torque. It seems like you also get some extra turbo whistle which I love, but you have to have the windows down to really hear it. I have the most benefit with this when I do a 91 octane tune with intake. Instructions are spot on and it takes around 45 min from start to finish. Only tricky part is attaching the new intake tube to all three spots. Just make sure your worm gears are backed out all the way. I can say if you live in a dry climate (I am in Albuquerque) the added cover keeps the filter cleaner longer compared to the open style intakes I have had in my Ram and Mustangs.

    BREATH BABY BREATH

    ONCE I RECEIVED MY AIRAID INTAKE FOR MY FORD 150 ECOBOOST AND OPENED THE BOX I THOUGHT LOOK AT ALL THE PARTS ?? 45 MINUTES LATER I HAD IT INSTALLED AND IT LOOKS NICE. CRANKED IT UP NO DTC LIGHTS READY TO ROLL. IT SMOOTHED OUT THE IDLE THAT FROM THE FACTORY WAS A BIT ROUGH BUT NOT NO MORE. MY TRUCK NOW POURS ON THE POWER A LOT SMOOTHER THAN BEFORE, IT MUST HAVE BEEN NEEDED TO BREATH BADLY. THE INSTALL LOOKS COOL WITH THE AIR BOX COVER IN PLACE AND THAT WILL HELP TO KEEP IT CLEAN LONGER AND ALSO KEEP OUT THE UNDER THE HOOD HOT AIR . THIS UNIT TAKES IN AIR FROM A RAM AIR TYPE INLET VERY NICE ADDITION TO MY UNDER THE HOOD LOOKS AND A NICE BOOST IN POWER AND TORQUE. THUMBS UP FOR THIS ONE. THANKS
