    Will the air tube fit the Accufab ellipse Cobra throttle body? A friend ordered both and found the JLT tube opening to be the same dimensions as the TB. Can the tube be heated (hot water) ad lubed to make it expand and fit? Please advise as I was thinking about getting the same set up.

    Cobra8

    • The JLT Performance Next Generation Ram Air Intake should be able to fit with the Accufab Ellipse Throttle Body, however the coupler may need to be heated up by placing it in hot water. Silicon spray lubricant can be used to ease install as well.

    Will this fit a 98 Cobra with a Steeda strut bar installed? I've read mixed reviews on whether this will fit under a strut bar.

    CraigR

    • No, the JLT Performance Next Generation Ram Air Intake will not fit under the strut bar due to the sheer size, It does not fit under most strut bars.

    ShaneC

      Meh

      While the filter is big, I'm not exactly sold on the piping. A rubber-like pipe does not exactly flow air like a smooth, metal pipe would or should IMO. Also looks cheap. I noticed almost no gains. Where it sits, I can only imagine how much hot air it sucks up from my motor and long tubes. Most CAI I have had on other mustangs in the past were a little more successful and polished. The price is a little high to me. Not that impressed.

      JLT CAI FTW

      I installed this cold air intake on my 97 cobra and it surely left me with no regrets the throttle response is so much better thanks AM!

      Great Part for the price

      Took me about 25 mins. to install since I manage a shop, but I wish i could keep the strut brace on. I removed the BBK intake of in favor of this and let me tell you, pretty noticeable difference. Better idle, better throttle response, and nice exhaust note. It did gain a little more power and im sure its gona be better with a tune.

      Was very easy to install. Looks great and had a check engine light on until I installed and now it has went off. Car also seems to run so much better.

      nice bolt on

      First thing is a very tight fit. 2nd thing is the hoses didn't work out to well and kind of had to fab up my own on my 98 cobra. 3rd is i could feel the difference between stock vs jlt and I like it. Overall very happy with this cai.

      Good product but...

      This was a good buy but my motor had to be pulled apart so I only drove the car for a day with it on so far. But it did seem to make a difference. I cant wait to get the car back to gather and see what it can really do.

      97 cobra jlt

      This thing flows awesome and cleans up the engine well. I do feel like jlt was worried mainly about flow and not fitment. When i installed it everything had to be just right. Overall it flows good, looks good, and as for as i can see its the cheapest on the market. Bye the way the filter on this thing is massive and the end cap is also part of the filter. Its a nice touch that alows it to pull air coming in around the headlight.

      Ram Air

      The forced induction on this intake is significantly greater then the stock K&N intake, improved gas mileage and useable HP. I had previously purchased the BBK intake to fit under my strut tower brace, but decided against the BBK because it made my Cobra ball less, it was worse then the stock intake. The JLT is fantastic and performs flawlessly. With a tune added the JLT produces awesome results and you will be pleased.

      MPG

      I got the JLT Ram Air Intake to increase the MPG on my car after the first day of driving to work i can already see a difference in the amount of gas i use. I am extremely happy with this purchase. The only issue i had with this product was during installation the screws used to assemble the Mass Air Flow Sensor to MAF adapter was a pain to start. Other than that is was real easy and a perfect fit.

      JLT is the way to GO!!

      I bought the JLT RAM AIR intake for my 1998 mustang cobra wanting some extra power, and after about 1hr of putting it on I drove it. First thing I could tell was the car was a TAD LOUDER. While I noticed it had more performance to notice OVER the K&N drop-in filter that I had on there. After a day of driving the computer had adjusted a little bit and the throttle was noticeably crisper and the response was great, and still is. It has been on for 6 months and still running great!!!!....I recommend the product greatly. Also I got 2 day shipping and was FAST!!!

      JLT RAM AIR INTAKE

      Much cleaner fit and install than the previous design with the PVC. This will not clear under the strut tower brace but neither do most. Power gains or mpg are minimal but cleans up the engine look. Must have over stock or a lesser quality intake.
