Justin: If you're looking to add 20 to 30 wheel horsepower to your 2020 and newer GT500 at home with one simple modification and without changing the tune, well, then you should definitely consider adding JLT's big air system that we're talking about here today. Now the JLT does utilize the rotomolded plastic construction for the tube itself, along with your heat shield and fresh air duct before topping everything off with this absolutely massive 6 by 9-inch S&B high flow oiled filter, all for right on the low $400 price point.So JLT is without a doubt one of the most popular names in the Mustang aftermarket as far as intakes are concerned and for good reason, right? The quality of construction and quality of fitment are always on point. And as someone who has had more than a few JLT systems on my rides in the past, and even currently, I can attest that they do perform as advertised, and certainly fit like a factory part.Now, the GT500-specific hit that we're talking about here today is going to feature JLT's massive rotomolded plastic intake tube starting at 6 inches here at the filter side before smoothly tapering down to 4.5 inches at the throttle body side. And this will basically allow this thing to work with both your stock or aftermarket throttle body. Now, Shelby owners can also look forward to the huge reusable oiled filter from S&B that we mentioned earlier.Now, the oiled filter is obviously washable and is reusable, and that's gonna save you a few bucks in the long run as opposed to replacing those cheaper paper element factory filters every 10,000 to 15,000 miles. Now on top of that, guys, oil filters are gonna typically flow a little bit better compared to a dry filter as they utilize that oil to capture the dirt and dust particles, as opposed to using a denser filter media.Now that red oiled filter is isolated in your included heat shield here, which will help keep the intake air temperatures down a little bit at lower speeds, and will utilize the open box here, open-top design, which will allow Shelby owners to finally hear that factory or aftermarket supercharger whining like crazy. And that's something that tends to get lost with the factory airboxes. You really don't hear that supercharger like a lot of owners would like to.But sound aside, the biggest draw with the GT500 kit from JLT is gonna be the power gain over that restrictive factory airbox. Now numerous dyno videos amongst the Mustang community have proven 20, even 30-plus wheel is possible when adding nothing but the JLT here. Now, unfortunately, we don't have any in-house dyno numbers to verify this, but trust me, guys, the proof is out there. Just do a quick search on YouTube and you'll see what I'm talking about.Now, the best part is, guys, you don't even have to touch that factory tune. Just open up the box, bolt up the JLT, and you're good to go without adding anything else. But now we do wanna segue into the install, and installing a cold air intake honestly is one of the easiest things you'll ever tackle on your Mustang. So much so that the site's gonna stick with a one out of three wrenches on the difficulty meter, maybe an hour of your time to complete from start to finish. But now to give you a better idea of just what you're in for at home, check out this detailed walkthrough from an AM customer now.Man 1: Okay. You'll need a basic flat-blade screwdriver, a socket wrench, a socket extension, and a 10-millimeter socket. You may also need a 5/16th or 8-millimeter nut driver.We're gonna work on removing the throttle body clamp. Okay. First, start removing the connections in the cold air intake. Oh, that was not even connected. And this clip comes off here. This fastener, remove that. The fastener comes off here. Take my 10-millimeter socket. Remove this base out of here like this. We're gonna remove this full cold air intake assembly from Ford. And there's the whole assembly.So we took off the cold air intake tube, the vacuum line, the PCV connection, and the IAT or mass airflow sensor. Here on this sensor, there's a rubber O-ring. Before we install in the JLT system, we have to roll that O-ring down very carefully. So to keep it in place for further use if you wanna go back to a stock setup and you can't lose that O-ring that way. And then the fasteners that were to hold that hardware in place.So here we have the Ford original factory cold air intake system. We have to take a couple of parts off of this and put it on the new JLT system. So the rubber grommet will be removed. We'll take it over here and we will set it on the bottom of this new box here. And then the steel pin comes out and the grommet that goes with it. There we go. And the grommet goes in this other hole here. And the pin goes through the top. There we go.Also, there are two push pins. For the wiring, it goes on the back of this box. One pin goes in here and the other pin goes on the opposite side here. There we go. So now we're gonna install the new JLT cold air intake box. It should sit right down inside this beautiful engine bay. And she is seated where she's supposed to be. Take our 10-millimeter bolt, get it started in the hole, grab our 10-millimeter socket.So the next part is we will take this cold air inlet and stick it inside of the front side of the cold air intake box. And there is a piece on the inside of the grille, and just put it in there. So next step is take your intake tube and we put the JLT performance connection and the clamps to be installed on the top right there. And push it on all the way. Take our screwdriver, snug them up just a bit and we'll finish tightening once everything is together.All right. Next step is to reattach the vacuum line to the cold air intake tube. And then the PCV connection clips back on there. Make sure everything is secure. And then we're gonna put the mass airflow sensor in. Okay. And we're gonna connect this pin keeper with a wire, push the excess wiring, and put it underneath. And there's that back clip as well. Slides in there that way. There we go. It looks nice.Okay. Last step is to install the filter. [inaudible 00:09:12] this up tight so I can get to screw it on. All we have to do is... screwdriver. Finish screwing these clamps tight. She's nice and snug, we're gonna finish the clamp on the throttle body. Screw these nice and tight. [inaudible 00:10:22]Justin: So if you're looking for one simple modification, add more power and more sound to your already nasty GT500, you'll find it right here with the JLT Cold Air Intake available at americanmuscle.com.
