Review & Install Video

Hey I’m Justin with AmericanMuscle.com, and I’m going to be breaking down the JLT cold air intake, available in a textured black ABS plastic finish, or carbon fiber, fitting all 2011 and newer Mustang GTs. The Performance cold air from JLT is a tune only intake due to its absolutely massive 170mm diameter intake tube that does incorporate the MAF housing into the actual tube itself, making for a much cleaner look. Because this intake does not include a reducer insert like other aftermarket intakes, running a performance tune is an absolute must. Taking a closer look at the first option you’ll see that JLT went with a lightweight ABS plastic for the intake tube, which will be slightly better at reducing heat soak when compared to other metal intake tubes. JLT does offer the performance in a carbon fiber version which will offer all the same performance benefits as the ABS plastic version, but with a very cool carbon fiber finish that’s sure to look great under the hood, that is of course if you don’t mind spending a few extra bucks for the added bling. Included in the package you’ll find the rather large power stack reusable high flow filter, ABS plastic heat shield, all the hardware and couplers, and finally the intake tube itself. The nice thing with the JLT is it does include a bung to be used with the interior sound tube, if you’re not familiar with what this is it’s basically a hose which connects that bung to the firewall, and pumps all that intake noise into the cabin. If you’ve already deleted this, or you’re not a fan of this, you can always use the included cap to plug everything off. Alright, in order to see how well the JLT will perform on our Coyote motor, we need to see where the car stands now, so with that said let’s grab a quick baseline run using our automatic 2011 GT, and then get to work installing the intake. Removing the stock airbox and then getting the new JLT installed is something any backyard mechanic should be able to tackle in half an hour or less using basic hand tools. For automatic equipped cars, you will need to drill a half inch hole into the actual intake tube, and then use the included fitting to complete the job but really it’s not a big deal. As I mentioned earlier, due to the size of the mass air flow housing on the JLT, running a performance tune is an absolute must, otherwise you’re going to trigger a check engine light, so we’re going to upload our custom Bama tune, which is going to optimize our spark timing, adjust our variable cam timing, and should ultimately get those air/fuel ratios right where they need to be. Alright with our JLT installed and our tune uploaded, let’s make another pull on the Dynojet and see what kind of improvements this intake made on our 2011. Our baseline run using our automatic 2011 GT gave us 336 horsepower and 302 ft/lbs of torque, with our JLT/Bama combination, we put down 369 horsepower and 339 ft/lbs of torque, making for a peak gain of 33 horsepower over our baseline numbers, and gains of 37 horsepower and 60 ft/lbs of torque throughout the curve. The performance from the JLT is for the Mustang owner who’s looking for maximum power gains, and either has a tune installed already or plans on purchasing one along with the intake, and as always you can check out both options right here at AmericanMuscle.com

More Usable Horsepower. Gain up to 24 or even 30 RWHP throughout your entire power band with a JLT intake and a custom tune on your 2011 (or newer) GT. Putting 30 more ponies to the pavement doesn't get any easier, faster, or more affordable than this. Plus, your GT will also respond faster with a noticeable improvement in throttle response for better driveability and quicker launches.

107mm MAF Housing. This JLT cold air intake kit has a unique design that incorporates 107mm MAF housing right into the tube for a clean look (MAF not included). Plus, a removable cap over the interior sound tube allows you to choose whether you want to hear the added growl from your new intake or not.

Heat Shield Included. The JLT Performance Cold Air Intake includes a vacuum formed ABS plastic heat shield that not only looks great, but blocks out excessive under hood engine heat at low speed and idle that can rob you of power. All JLT kits now also include our water blocker plug insert for no worries about water getting to the filter.

Money Saving Reusable Filter. This JLT cold air intake kit comes complete with a high flow reusable S&B brand air filter. So that means there is no need to go out and buy a new filter every few thousand miles. Now you can just clean the filter, re-oil it, save money, and go!

Required Upgrade. Installation of this Cold Air Intake will require the use of a Mustang Handheld Tuner to reprogram the vehicles computer (ECU) for operation.

Application. This JLT Cold Air Intake is specifically designed for use on the 2011-2014 5.0 GT Mustang with either a manual or automatic transmission. Requires a new computer tune.

Application Note. This Cold Air Intake can be used with the Boss 302 Intake Manifold, however JLT does offer a Cold Air Intake, part# CAI-FMG-11-BC, that includes a longer coupler that would improve the fitment with the Boss 302 Intake Manifold.

Technical Notes. Automatic equipped Mustangs will require drilling an extra hole into the induction tube for proper installation. When installing the filter on the air tube, please be sure not to slide the air filter down too far on the tube as it may cause surging issues.

  • Installation of this JLT Performance Cold Air Intake will require the use of a Mustang Handheld Tuner to reprogram the vehicles computer (ECU) for operation. Those tunes can be acquired via an online tuner such as Bama Performance or at a local Dyno.

Is it possible to buy the filter only without buying the full intake? I already have the intake and really just wanted a replacement filter.

  • We only carry the JLT Performance Cold Air Intake as a complete kit. I would recommend contacting JLT directly to inquire about replacement filters.

What is the difference between this intake and the boss 302 intake? Was just wondering because i ordered the boss 302 manifold and the GT cai.

TylerB

  • Hey Tyler, this JLT intake actually connects to the BOSS intake manifold and they work really well together. The BOSS intake manifold installs directly to the block where as the JLT CAI connects to that intake manifold. So they are both apart of the total intake system just at different ends.

    Easy mod. Excellent gains you can hear and feel

    I was previously running my 2012 GT with a Custom Bama Race Tune. My only other performance mod was an axle back Flowmaster Super 40 series exhaust. When I installed this JLT intake and loaded the new custom Bama Race Tune, I could instantly hear the difference when I started the car. Once I got this thing out on the freeway and on some open back roads, I could feel the gains. I have not dyno'd yet but I will assure you the 20 to 30 HP gain is pretty accurate. A friend told me a CAI will also change the sound of the exhaust, which I was wanting to replace, anyways. After opening my Mustang up to full throttle a few times, I'm starting to change my mind on that. The custom tune I was running provided gains that were noticeable. Now, the JLT intake paired with a new custom tune makes this car drive and sound like a beast. Also, the installation was absolutely as simple as could be. I've never installed a CAI before or done much of anything on a car except oil changes and tire rotations. It took me 30 minutes maybe. Loading the new Bama Race Tune took longer than installing the intake. The install video on the American Muscle site, along with the included instructions, tells you everything you need to know.

    Good power Easy install UNSTOPPABLE SQUEAL

    I bough this with alot of other bolt ons for my 2011 mustang GT/CS. After initial install i noticed a squeal noise coming from under the hood and thought well maybe i just didnt tighten something completly or the filter was at a wierd angle. after hours of messing with it uninstalling and even removing the boss intake manifold and reinstall to find the problem i was to no avail. I searched forums and found a trend of people who noticed the same symptom and there only remedy was a new CAI. If you are one of the lucky ones maybe yours wont make such a noise im am currently in the process of hoping AM will allow me to 1 for 1 swap for a steeda wich will make me need to pay a little more and re tune but hopefully all will go well and that noise will go away!

    Not what I was hoping for...ū

    I gained just 15hp with this CAI and a Bama tune. The support guys tried to be helpful and suggested I pull a complete report. Pulling those reports is a giant pain! Then after hours of submitting reports and them reviewing my tune they might either find a problem and give me a few more HP or might tell me oh well. It's just not worth the hassle. Add to that, as it turns out, I'm not a fan of the awful sucking sounds this and most other CAI's make. I want to hear my exhaust not my intake. I hoped this one would sound good, it didn't, but I've gotten used to it after 9 months. Another downside for me if the car goes back to the dealer for service you really need to go back to a stock tune. This CAI can't be run without a tune. Next week I have to go to the dealer for service, for which they need to flash something to my car, so I am now forced to uninstall this and reinstall my OEM airbox. As a result my CAI probably won't be going back on. All that said the install and removal is simple. Took me just 15 mins to go back to stock. With the tune now gone I see just how great my Bama tune was. With their easy to use tunes for life I'm going to ask them to make me a new one without the CAI. Great support from AM and a good product from JLT, it's just not for me.

    Best bang for my buck

    My husband asked for this for Father's day. It took him no time to put it in. After ordering an updated tune from Lund, he was off. No really noticeable difference in horsepower that we can tell, it is already close to 500hp, but can tell a little difference. My husband is happy, so I am happy.

    Great product

    This product installed great into my car. I took out the factory equipment and everything lined up and fot great. The only thing you have to do is if you have an automatic you need to drill a hole in the pipe to add a place for one of the tubes to click into. I noticed power gains right away you just need to tune it before you drive it.

    WOW!

    It took me about an hour to install this simply because it was raining on and off. If I did it again in nice weather I could easily do it in 30 minutes or less. The noise this thing produces is intoxicating! Adds a nice growl to the exhaust and a sucking noise when you get on the throttle. It looks pretty good under the hood but the performance and sound gains are by far the best part! I have a Pypes Axleback which I thought sounded amazing before this but not she just howls when I open it up. Great product!

    Had to have this with my Boos 302 intake and BKK shorties. Loaded the Bama race tune and it is a totally different car. I highly recommend if you have the Boss 302 intake. Still need to dyno to see real gains, but feels significantly more powerful.

    Easiest way to make quick gains!

    This is a tune only cold air intake! The tubing is huge so you have to pair with a tuner. I paired my intake with a wireless Bama tuner and the results are amazing! The sound alone is almost worth the purchase. This really turns the car into a living, breathing monster, and that's with a stock exhaust. Performance wise I noticed the most horsepower gains in the car's power band, without a huge noticeable difference in torque. I know the torque is there but you just don't notice it like the horsepower. The car just pulls so much harder around 4000-6000 rpm's. The fit is good, I did have some issue trying to get the filter itself to sit on the tubing where it was supposed to be. That's probably more my mechanical prowess though. All in all one of the best things you can do for your car! Must have!

    JLT Cold Air Kit 2013 GT

    There is no doubt this air kit increased power,,, especially through first gear. The car moved much quicker through the tach. But a few comments. #1 I was told another tune would be needed besides the 93 Octane Performance tune I have with my Bama.You do not. This tune works for this mod with no error lights. #2 I could not get the sound tube back on the new air kit. It took me a long time of attempts and I eventually just removed it. But, it is a much cleaner look without it.. so call it a good thing. #3 When you start your car you may hear a whistle, or a supercharger type whistle, At first I thought I had a vacuum leak when in fact it is actually the air being sucked through the new filter. #4 also when you start your car you will find that it runs rough. This will go away as the computer relearns the new settings. #5 make sure you have the proper alan wrench to remove the screws from the scensor of the stock air kit. I have many alan wrenchs and they were either too big or small. I had to use pliers to remove the screws. So... in a nut shell this is my experience. Your car will be a different car with the tune and the air kit. It jumps to life!

    This is the second JLT I've owned on my mustangs. Literally took me 15 mins to put on and fit was great. Cleans up the engine bay so much by getting rid of the stock airbox and sound tube. Had it dynoed and tuned right after with the GT500 axleback exhaust and resonators cutoff car made 408 to the ground. Like the title says a MUST mod for your mustang!!

    JLT CAI Works great and LOVE the Sound

    The first this I need to say is get your tune before you put this on. I put the JLT on one Saturday and couldn't drive my car till Monday because I had to wait until I got the tune. The CAI Really sounds great. Not much power gain from the feel of it but the Sound made it worth it to me. Install is very easy an anyone who can drive will be able to put one on.

    Overall i would say this is by far the best intake to get. Everything fits perfect and even fits with throttle body spacer. The intake kit does require a tune but still is better then a non tune intake. Has the option to retain the sound tube, or can be capped off and removed such as i did. You can still hear the intake but isnt overpowering or annoying. All in all i would buy this intake again if i had to do it over.

    Very easy installation. Fit was a bit tight to get the spacer/wall installed but it fit snuggly once it was in. I will probably delete the noise tube but it sounds good right now. After the tune and JLT intake were installed, there was a noticeable difference in the power band as well as a much meaner growl to the motor/exhaust. Best bang for your buck right here!

    The Biggest bang for your stang!!!

    Like most of you reading this I didn't know which Cold Air intake to buy for my mustang. I wanted something that would add power, look good, and not be to bad on my wallet. I'm so glad I got this product. It actually added more horsepower then it said it would with a tune. And its a pretty fair deal considering you can buy another cold air intake for the same price but not get the same performance. Quick story my friend who also has a 5.0 same mods as me but different Intake wanted to have a friendly race on a back road needless to say he bought a JLT intake the next day.!
