Review & Installation Video

Review & Install Video

Hey, what's going on guys? Adam here with AmericanMuscle.com. Today I'm bringing you a detailed review of the Airaid MXP Series Cold Air Intake with the SynthaFlow Oiled Filter in red, fitting all 2015 and a newer 3.5 liter EcoBoost F-150s. So in this video I'll be going over all functionality and expectations you can get out of the Airaid MXP Series Cold Air Intake as well as the materials and construction. I'll top it all up with the installation which I'll tell you up top, you'll get one of three wrenches on our Difficulty Meter, making this one of the easiest modes you can easily do to your truck, So, let's get right into it. The Airaid MXP Series Cold Air Intake with the SynthaFlow Oiled Filter in red is going to be for all 2015, and newer 3.5 EcoBoost owners out there looking to upgrade from their stock Airbox to one of the top notch quality intake systems on the market while maintaining a no tune required for an easy bolt on install. The Airaid MXP Series Cold Air Intake with the SynthaFlow red Oiled Filter is representing one of the best cold air induction system companies on the market today completely replacing your factory Airbox system, everything from the tubing to your turbo, all the way down to the filter and airbox but of course that's going to mean it is a little more expensive but there is a lot of bank for your buck, given that it is one quality part. Now with that said this one is also not going to require any tune for your computer which also means it will be a direct bolt on but I'll touch on that in just a bit. Now speaking of no tune required, the Airaid system I have with me today and a lot of the other options on the market for our Ecoboost utilize a speed density system instead of what is known as a mass airflow. The speed density system is going to make changes to your computer on the fly, relieving you of the hassle of picking up a new tube and of course saving you that extra money. Now with that in mind guys, I do want to point out that the Airaid system I have with me today, isn't going to make the world different when it comes to power. You can expect single digit gains at best and of course a slight increase in throttle response, but another plus in picking up this kit that a lot of people may find attractive is a more aggressive sound coming from your engine bay and the turbo itself. Thanks to the Airaid kit put together. One thing I do want to point out about this kit is that it is going to be 50 state legal, basically meaning that any guys out there in the emission restrictive states like California, will be able to take the Airaid MXP Series Cold Air Intake and still be road legal. Now as far as materials and construction goes here, expect the system to include a one-piece roto-molded air box, which is huge improvement of your factory options, while completely enclosing your new Airaid SynthaFlow Oiled Filter here. This will improve the filtration and keep out the excess engine heat, while this one is also reusable and washable with a re-oiled application, preventing you from going out and picking up a whole new one. Also included in the kit will be an improved tubing system. Here, this one is going to be a cross-linked, high-density polyethylene with the velocity stack built in for improved calibrations over all. Overall, this one gives you a lot of bank for your buck and I'll touch on that in just a second. If this is something that does peak your interest, expect to be picking it up for just about 400 bucks and now that price tag will put this at the higher end of the options on the market here, simply because Airaid is one of the industry leaders when it comes to the Cold Air Induction System for your 35. Overall you're getting a high quality reusable oiled filter here, with a high quality gearbox and some really good high quality tubing for improved calibrations over all. Now as far as the installations for this option goes, you can expect to get this done in just about 30 minutes or so at the max in your drive way at home with a set of basic hand tools like ratchet and socket set and I will definitely be giving this one, a one out of three wrenches on our Difficulty Meter. So, to get the job done, you'll be using those basic hand tools to unbolt and un-click your factory air box system and set that aside. Of course you'll be picking up your tubing system and installing that all into place with the hardware provided in the kit. Working your way all the way down to the air box and then again to the filter, clamping everything down, restoring all connections and you'll be good to go. Overall like I said, 30 minutes tops in the driveway at home making this a very simple install for any novice to take care of, definitely getting a one of three wrenches on our Difficulty Meter. Just to wrap things up here guys, if you're the owner of a 2015 or newer 3.5 liter EcoBoost F-150 and you're looking for a way to pick the topnotch systems on the market when it comes to airflow, you might want to check out the Airaid MXP Cold Air Intake with the SynthaFlow Oiled Filter in red, which of course is available right here at AmericaMuscle.com.

Simply wash and re-oil the filter and you're back in business.

High Quality, Sounds Great

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.

    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
