Review & Install Video

Hey, guys, Stephanie with americanmusacle.com here with the JLT Cold Air Intake for 2015 and up S550 EcoBoost Mustangs. This overview is gonna cover a few topics with the JLT, like what you can expect from this intake, some info about the components and the construction, and some info about the install as well. Now, the install for this one is a simple one. It's a one out of three wrenches on the scale. But I'll get more into that a little later on. The JLT Cold Air Intake is going to be a good option for the EcoBoost owners that are looking for an aftermarket cold air intake that is 50-state legal and that's gonna function a little bit better than the factory intake in the upper RPMs and once the mods have been completed on the car. The JLT is an open airbox design. But it does keep the direct cold air feed that Ford created. So it is more of a true cold air setup that does receive some air from outside the car. Like I just mentioned, the JLT is CARB-certified. It's 50-states mod legal, so there are no limits here. It doesn't require a tune. But honestly, no aftermarket cold air intake for the EcoBoost requires a tune, because these cars are speed density cars. The requirement of a tune with aftermarket intakes comes from the size of the MAF or the mass airflow. An aftermarket intake can only go so big with the MAF size before a car will need a retune. But since the EcoBoost is a speed density car, they don't have a MAF sensor. So no aftermarket intake for this car is going to require a tune. This means that you can just bolt up any intake and go. Now, even though this is the case with the EcoBoost, I do want to be clear with the fact that you're only gonna see gains of a few horsepower without a tune. So you can expect a small bump in horsepower and torque, along with improved throttle response overall. So because this is an open element style airbox, you're gonna be getting a little more engine and turbo noise than before with the factory-sealed airbox. If this is something that you're after, then you'll not be disappointed here. Although, if you do prefer to keep things quiet, you may want to stick with a sealed airbox instead. This cold air intake does come with a reusable high-flow filter. And it's a five by eight power stack air filter. And that means, when it comes time, you can just clean and re-oil the filter. You don't need to purchase a new filter. And the heat shield is a roto-molded ABS plastic. And you can see how this whole setup is much more attractive than the factory airbox under the hood, the nice matte black. And JLT is gonna give you everything you need for the install, the rear intake tube, a silicone coupler, the power stack air filter, heat shield, clamps, and all of the needed hardware. As far as price, you can expect to pay between $300 and $350. And this is pretty much in line with the majority of aftermarket cold air intakes on the market. There are some that cost less and some that cost more as well. As for the install, it's nothing too difficult. And like I mentioned earlier, the intake will come with all of the items that you need to complete the install. All you really need to complete this install is a few basic hand tools. This is probably one of the easier mods that you can tackle with your new Mustang, and it'll take about a half-hour or an hour, tops, and I'm going to call it a one out of three wrenches on our scale. All that you need to do is remove the factory airbox. Now, you will need to disconnect the air box from the inner fender and remove the inlet tube from the air filter and the throttle body. But we're just talking about a few bolts and clamps to get this done. The JLT installs the same way that the factory airbox came out. Just put your new couplers and clamps in place and slide the airbox in starting with the air duct first, and that goes right in the factory location. Then once you have all of that done and everything's installed and lined up properly, you can tighten it all down and you'll be good to go. Wrapping things up here, the JLT Cold Air Intake has an open element design. But it keeps the cold air feed from the grille of the EcoBoost, comes with a reusable filter and all of the items that you need to get it installed. And you can check it out more online right here at americanmuscle.com.

More Usable Horsepower. With a JLT Performance Cold Air Intake installed on your 2015-2017 EcoBoost you can expect to see a huge increase in horsepower and torque at the rear wheels of your Pony. In addition to an increase in power you will also see an impressive improvement in driving performance.

No Tune Required. JLT engineered their Cold Air Intake to improve the performance of your EcoBoost Pony without the need of reprograming the factory computer (ECU) for operation, but they do recommend the use of a Handheld Tuner to reach larger power gains.

Heat Shield Included. The JLT Performance Cold Air Intake includes a roto molded 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.

Money Saving Reusable Filter. This JLT cold air intake kit comes complete with a 5"x8" 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!

CARB Certified. Best of all this Mustang JLT Performance Cold Air Intake Kit is 50-state smog legal under Carb EO# D-671.

Application. This JLT Cold Air Intake is specifically designed for use on the 2015-2017 EcoBoost Mustang with either a manual or automatic transmission. No tune required.

    Smooth, Fast and Loud

    Very easy install, I had a little trouble maneuvering the air intake shield into the car which took a couple minutes but everything else went flawless. Make sure to unplug your negative terminal on your battery for at least a couple hours to reset you air to fuel ratio. I have the blow off valve open and it sounds so good and echoes across town. Just make sure to put the given blow off plug on your cold air intake. No engine light what so ever and it runs and sounds so good. I highly recommend this product. Thank you American Muscle for another great product.

    Savage sound

    The sound difference is unbelievable. When the turbo spools it gets so loud and on gear changes, the blowoff sound is amazing. Before this upgrade, I could only here the turbo spool up until 50 mph on 4th, but now I can hear it when going at 80 or 90 and even on 6th!!!! The cold air intake sounds much deeper that stock and when the windows are closed, you can hear a deep engine noise which is just awesome. I love this CAI, installation took longer that I had planned but totally worth it every second and penny I spent on this.

    20 minutes later...

    Took about 20 minutes to install, that was at night in my garage with a shop light. Took it out for a quick ride and Whoa! I'm already running a Bama Tune and MBRP and a Race exhaust and a Green Filter in the OEM box, so I was not expecting to feel that much impact. I was wrong, way wrong. The JLT made a huge difference, felt immediately as the tires broke loose easily when I blipped the throttle. Have to say, well worth ever penny, the Butt Dyno is very happy.

    Good but check engine light issues

    Installed this CAI, magnaflow catback exhaust, and eibach pro kit with a cousin that owns a shop. The sound was great and the power gains we decent. First issue was that the blow off valve cap it comes with immediately trigged the sensor so had to reattach the line that recirculates the air. Roughly 1000 miles later and for every 200 miles since then I have been getting code P04DB related to the PCV connection on the intake tube. JLT has no current fix and is aware of the issue. Sending this back for an upgrade to the Roush which I can't find these issues occuring on any forums...meanwhile JLT is causing this for many drivers.

    Love It!

    I got it on Friday and went to work installing it right away. Had only a little trouble installing the PVC hose. Other than that it was a cinch. Sounds great and looks great. I added my own little custom touch by painting the JLT Competition Orange to match the color of my Mustang!

    Gives the Ecoboost more sound for sure.

    Install was a bit of a pain, but to be expected since the EB turbo is deeper in the engine compartment. Fitment is good and built well. I get a more pronounce vacuum noise when on the throttle and of course much more boost noise when letting off. Overall a great product.

    Acceptable Power Added

    I've never been one to mod my own cars myself but I was assured that the JLT intake was a breeze to install and it truly was. It's very attractive in the engine bay and I did happen to notice a bit of a power increase--but it is a very, very small increase--I only noticed that I had to break a bit harder as my car didn't seem to "die" after I took my foot off the gas as it did before. I haven't noticed any type of sound difference, though. Which, being an ecoboost owner, was a disappointment. I got the JLT intake during the Black Friday sale, which saved me a bit. I'm hoping I'll be a little happier about the intake during the hot summers here in California when my mustang would be more susceptible to heat soak.

    AMAZING INTAKE

    Great cai sound is amazing, I did get a check engine light a week after installing but it went away after a day (without me doing anything). By taking off the bov pipe and plugging the cai it makes a really nice blow off sound, great product!
