- How to Install a JLT CAI and Bama Tuner On your 2011-2014 Mustang GT
Hey It’s Mike from AmericanMuscle.com. Today we’re going to take a look at the JLT cold air intakes for your 2011 Mustang GT, one made out of durable plastic, the other out of lightweight carbon fiber. These cold air intakes replace your factory restrictive airbox. By increasing the airflow to your Mustang’s engine, you’ll notice increased horsepower, better acceleration, improved throttle response, and better fuel economy, especially when you add a Bama tune. These really are must have modifications for performance. Before installing the intakes, we did a stock Dyno run to get some baseline numbers. Stock, our 2011 Mustang GT automatic put down 344 horsepower and 302 ft/lbs of torque. The JLT carbon fiber kit comes with a high flow reusable air filter, lightweight carbon fiber inlet tube, silicone hoses, all the hardware, and a plastic heat shield. First we installed the JLT carbon fiber kit. 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 your performance through optimized air/fuel ratio, spark advance, enhanced throttle response, variable cam timing, and for automatics, increased shift firmness, and adjustable shift points. After installing the JLT carbon fiber intake and a Bama race tune, we did another Dyno run. With the JLT carbon fiber intake and our Bama tune, our 2011 GT put down 365 horsepower, and 341 ft/lbs of torque, gaining as much as 57 horsepower and 55 ft/lbs of torque throughout the curve. Next, we installed the JLT cold air intake with the plastic tubing. The JLT kit comes with a high flow reusable air filter, plastic molded inlet tube, silicone hoses, all the hardware, and a plastic heat shield. After installing this kit with our Bama race tune, we did one more Dyno run. The JLT with the plastic tubing made an identical 365 horsepower and 341 ft/lbs of torque, while also gaining us 57 horsepower and 55 ft/lbs of torque, throughout the curve. Both JLT intake kits were easy to install with simple hand tools in under an hour’s time. Whether you decide to go with the lightweight carbon fiber intake tube or the plastic intake tube, they’ll both gain you as much as 57 horsepower and 55 ft/lbs of torque.
