Review & Installation Video

Hey everybody, Justin with, here with my review of the JLT Cold Air Intake and VMP tune combo, available for your 2015 and up Mustang GT. All right guys, let's start with the JLT first here. Now, obviously one of the most recognizable names in the category or the after-market when it comes to intakes, and again, it's gonna be a top-rated intake here on the site; all the reviews are very favorable. Now, this is a tune-required intake, meaning you can't just bolt this thing up and go without the use of an after-market custom tune, and that's mainly due to the fact that this thing utilizes a rather large 110-millimeter mass airflow housing, currently the largest available on the site for your S-550 GT. Now, this is gonna let your Coyote motor breathe a little bit easier, and traditionally should make a little bit more power compared to those non-tune required intakes utilizing a smaller mass airflow housing. Now, one thing I do really like about the JLT is that it does incorporate that mass housing into the actual intake tube itself here, making for a much cleaner appearance overall. Some other options on the after-market, or in the after-market, will utilize a metal mass airflow housing in conjunction with a plastic intake tube, and there's nothing really wrong with that from a performance standpoint, but it just doesn't look as clean in my opinion. In addition to that intake tube and mass airflow housing, the rest is gonna be pretty much standard here, guys, in the world of after-market intakes. You're gonna be looking at a high-flow, reusable oil filter in addition to an ABS plastic, molded, open-element style heat shield, which does feature this duct here that will tap into your factory cold air ducting, which is a nice little touch in my opinion. You can also expect all the hardware and couplers needed to get this thing installed. One thing to point out, guys, when driving the car with the JLT installed, I definitely notice some increased noise coming from under the hood, and that's gonna be pretty much standard stuff whenever you ditch your sealed, factory air box in favor of an open-element style filter like the JLT. There's no negative to this; in fact, a lot of people actually enjoy the added noise, but it is worth pointing out and honestly, depending on how loud your exhaust is, you might not even hear it at all. All right guys, that's gonna cover the basics of the JLT. Now, let's hit on the VMP tune, which again, is going to be a premium, or top-shelf, option when it comes to tunes here at AM. Of course, you can expect the power increase, but you're also gonna expect the refinement and drivability, and that's the big separating factor with VMP, so no surging issues, no drivability issues, no stalling issues, things like that, in addition to the power gains throughout the RPM range. Now, they do offer three tunes along with their tuning package here - a low, medium, and high octane tune - depending on what kind of fuel you have in your area, and they also offer one data log revision if needed. Those VMP tunes do come loaded on the SF4/X4 Power Flash Tuner, which does feature some pretty nice bells and whistles on its own - one-touch data logging, capable of reading and displaying up to eight different values at one time, boost air/fuel ratio, intake and temperature, things like that. It can hold up to 10 tunes at once, and it can still read and clear those check engine lights. All right guys, I said it before, but I'll say it again. This is definitely going to be a premium package. Now, both the JLT and VMP tunes by themselves are going to be at the top of the price range in their own respective categories; put them together and you can expect to drop some nice coin on this package when adding it to your car. That being said, you are gonna be seeing some pretty solid gains as we'll show you here in a minute with the Dynojet. But first let's talk about the install; really not that bad here. Basic hand tools, essentially meaning a socket set and a flathead and you should be able to get the JLT installed. We call it an hour on the site but honestly, I wouldn't be surprised if it took you 30 minutes or less to get everything banged out; the tune factor in another half hour, give or take, and again, plug-and-play deal there, so overall, one out of three wrenches on my overall difficulty meter, not a hard thing to install; anybody should be able to accomplish this in their driveway or garage. We already grabbed our baseline run using our manual 2015 GT. We then re-ran the car with the JLT installed and the VMP tuneup loaded, and here's how the numbers look. Baseline, our GT's putting down 386 horsepower, 364 pound feet of torque at the rear wheels. With the JLT/VMP combo, the car's now making 410 horsepower, 369 pound feet of torque; that's good for a peak gain of 24 horsepower over the baseline numbers, and gains as much as 28 horsepower, 32 pound feet of torque underneath the curve. All right guys, so what do all these numbers mean? Well, basically, those peak numbers are nice, they're sexy, of course, but you really need to pay attention to the numbers underneath the curve, because that's the stuff you're gonna be feeling day in and day out. Essentially everything from 2,000 RPM all the way to about 5,000 RPM, your normal operating range for the most part here, the car picked up a ton of torque down low, and that's what you're gonna be feeling, red light to red light, pulling onto the highway, merging, things like that; again, stuff you're gonna be feeling driving the car around town. Now, did it stop there? No, it picked up a ton of power up top as well, so when you're really starting to beat on the car, you're drag-racing the car, obviously it gained up top as well. So, to wrap this thing up guys, the JLT obviously a proven intake, and as you can see when you pair it up with the VMP tune you're gonna be getting a lot of power but you're also gonna see a nice increase to overall drivability, and again, a more refined product, so be sure to learn more about the JLT/VMP combo for your GT, here at

VMP is asking me whether this kit is a series 1 or series 2 CAI from JLT. AM nor JLT has any info as to whether or not this CAI has anything listed along those lines. Could you help me out with any info about this? I can't get my tune until I answer their email about this. Thanks!


Do you get free future tunes with this product as you upgrade parts such as longtube headers etc in the future?

Curious about why such a big difference in the hp/tq numbers between this JLT intake SCT X4 Tuner w/ VMP Tunes ( 28HP 32T) vrs the C L Racer Cold Air Intake SCT X4 Tuner w/ VMP Tunes ( 46HP 48TQ)? Is the C L CAI that much better than the JLT CAI; or Is the tune used in each of the CAI's very different? ie: both tunes are from VMP using the same tuner device. Is the daily driveabililty the same with both? The C L CAI is more open, and the JLT CAI is enclosed, does that enable a more aggressive VMP tune? I think you understand why my questions. I'm really curious if you can provide input as I'm sure most customers want to get the most bang for their $ and the difference between these two packages is only $26.00. If your uncomfortable in advising on the website directly feel free to PM me directly.


where is the link for the tuning info? I purchased this a couple of weeks ago and still no tune link..

    install not for the daily driver or weekend warrior.

    a.m. was extremely quick on this shipping of this product. great service with them as always. Install was very simple if you've done a cai before the instructions are almost pointless. great fit on every piece. then when you go to tune the car everything falls apart. hours sitting in front of the computer trying to update the tuner becuase their wireless updating fails at the third step every time. not just my connection either becuase i tried both neighbors as well. downloaded everything from sct to do the updates and drivers wouldnt install. finally get all the downloads squared away. tuner says its fully updated and it still throws errors. make an attempt to call their customer service but they are only open monday through friday. so all said and done 5 stars to a.m. 5 to jlt. and negative stars to sct. litterally wasted an entire day on their tuner trying to trouble shoot and cant even get assitance. performance gain gets 1 star becuase now my car cant be driven until i put the stock intake back on.

    JLT Cold Air Intake SCT X4 Tuner w/ VMP Tunes

    Cold air went on easy and fit and finish is nice. SCT X4 easy to use once everything is installed on computer and downloading custom tune was simple. VMP tune defiantly felt through the rpms.

    Quickest and easiest way to get more HP!!

    The JLT intake was very easy to install. Approximately 20 minutes and that's if you're not trying to rush it. I had to make one phone call to SCT for my computer to recognize the tuner, but that was quick and painless. The custom VMP tune I received feels very strong. The 2 items together woke up the GT and took it to the next level. Normal driving feels good with no issues. .....then when you jump on it the thing is a Beast!!
