- JLT Performance Cold Air Intake (05-09 Mustang V6) - Installation Instructions
Hey guys, Mike Wilson here from AmericanMuscle.com, today we’re going to take a look at the JLT cold air intake kit for the 2005-2009 Mustang V6, and what you can expect from horse power and torque gains when we install it along with one of our Bama performance 93 octane race tunes. Before we get to any of that, we’re going to make a stock dyno run to see what our baseline horse power and torque numbers are. Stock, our 2005 V6 automatic put down 172 horse power and 196 ft/lbs of torque. The JLT cold air intake kit replaces your factory restrictive airbox, with a high flow reusable air filter, and a plastic inlet tube, that’ll help increase horse power, torque, acceleration, and give you a throaty engine sound. Now we’re going to install this cold air intake, which should take less than an hour, and can be done with simple hand tools you have at home. Along with the cold air intake, we also installed one of our 93 octane Bama race tunes. A custom tune from Bama performance adjusts engine parameters to maximize performance, through optimized air/fuel ratio, spark advance, enhanced throttle response, and for automatics, increased shift firmness and adjustable shift points. Now let’s make another dyno run, and see what kind of horse power and torque numbers we get. We installed the JLT cold air intake kit along with a Bama performance tune, and our car put down 196 horse power and 224 ft/lbs of torque, while gaining as much as 30 horse power, and 36 ft/lbs of torque, throughout the curve. We installed our JLT cold air intake kit and our Bama performance tune all in under an hour’s time using simple hand tools, and we picked up as much as 30 horse power, and 36 ft/lbs of torque

Blah to wheee
I’ll be honest that I wasn’t expecting much change for a stock 4.0L V6 but, I was wrong. I use the 93 Octane race tune and after driving for a few days I noticed a increase in my throttle response, acceleration, and I am loving the aggression. I would definitely recommend this tuner to anyone for a wake up call to their vehicle.Helpful (1)

Not all the hype
Got my tunes in for 91 octane, and while it certainly is more predictable and smoother through the powerband on the race tune it didnt give it the feeling of more power. 500$ for that? I'd say no.Helpful (1)

Can this Tuner remove the governor?
Bama Performance would be able to tune to remove the governor on your car yes!
Hello, I am interested in purchasing this tuner for my 2005 v6 mustang. I live in southern California so gas is pricey, with the 87 octane what kind up hp would i be getting?
A 2005 Mustang V6 running the 87 octane performance tune would see around 12-15hp gains.
I'm just running 91 octane from now on. Is that ok on the 87 tune?
It is okay to run a higher octane fuel with a lower octane tune. You should never run a lower octane than what the tune calls for.
For anytime I go on a road trip and highway drive for a long period of time, is there a tune option for best mpg?
Bama offers a custom "Eco"/"Fuel Efficiency" Tune that will work to assist the motor operate more efficiently to save on fuel.
Would this tune be able to get rid of check engine lights if you are running a straight pipe?
This tuner will be able to write a code that clears the check engine light when running a straight pipe.
After placing your order, you will be emailed a questionnaire to gather your vehicles information and specifications such as octane rating for your tunes.
You will not need to tune your car again as it is loaded into your PCM. It will not be affected with the battery unplugged.
If you ever have problems with tunes, or just general questions upon your tunes, you need to speak with the tuners who wrote your tunes. Please speak with Bama directly upon the matter.
Bama does not offer ghost cam tunes for 05-09 models.
The Ford Performance Cold Air Intake (item #50141) required a custom tune, it cannot be used with the pre-programmed tunes on this device.
