Straightens Airflow. Up until now, most aftermarket cold air intakes for the 4.6L F-150 were designed with an intake tube with a 90 degree bend connecting to an air filter sitting behind the driver's side headlight. JLT Performance has revolutionized the intake designed with their Ram Air Intake System. This Ram Air Intake was designed to shorten the travel of air going into your engine and provide an unique styling under the hood with their huge air filter sitting in the middle of the engine bay. Dyno testing of this Ram Air Intake from JLT has shown gains of 8-12 RWHP and 10-14 RWTQ.

No Tune Required. JLT engineered their Ram Air Intake to improve the power and performance of your F-150 without the need of reprograming the factory computer (ECU) for operation.

Reusable S&B Air Filter. The included oval 4 inch x 12 inch high flow S&B Filter effectively filters out power robbing contaminants with its multi layer design. S&B Air Filters are made up of eight layers of specially treated cotton media that are mounted between two epoxy-coated wire screens. The red oil used to treat the cotton layers creates a sticky surface to capture harmful microscopic particles before they can enter your F-150's engine. Seeing that the filter is reusable there is no need to buy a new filter every few thousand miles. You can just clean the filter, re-oil it, and reinstall - saving yourself money in the long haul.

Made in the USA. JLT Performance designs and manufactures their Ram Air Intake Kit right here in the good old US of A. The intake tube is constructed out of aluminum that has been completed in a black powdercoat finish for long lasting durability and resistance against corrosion.

Simple Installation. JLT designed this Cold Air Intake to be installed easily with the use of basic hand tools. No extra modifications or special tools are required for installation. All of the necessary parts and instructions are included.

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

Application. This JLT Performance Ram Air Intake is specifically designed to fit on all 1997-2003 F-150s powered by the 4.6L V8 engine.

Why doesn't this work with the 5.4?


  • For the 5.4L you would want to look at T26002B JLT Ram Air Intake.

  • This item will not your MAF sensor.

Just wondering if this would work with the BBK 75mm throttle body for the 4.6?


  • Yes, the coupler this uses will be able to stretch.

    JLT intake

    I love this new intake it looks sweet and sounds good can't really tell a performance gain but maybe a little better throttle response, be prepared if you get this to go to autozone or oriellys and get some more 1/2" and 3/4" hose I think it was when it's fully installed it sticks to far away from the cob and idler air hoses I think they are so just busy some more tube and extend them and you'll be good to go probably an extra $10 or so so just be prepared to do that. Maybe a 2.5 hour job with the time include driving to the store and back

    Definitely "ram" air.

    I have just installed this product on my 04 Crew Cab Heritage Edition with the 4.6 V8. The longest part of the install was removing the stock mass airflow housing from the contraption that Ford decided to entomb it in. Installation is pretty straight forward although I had to purchase a foot of 3/4 breather hose. There is a tube which I believe goes to the idle control valve that has a plastic contraption that puts the hose at a 90 degree angle. With the supplied tubing, this product will work. However on my truck there was no way to retain the stock engine cover because that plastic 90 degree piece could not be positioned far enough out of the way. Ran to my local Advance auto and just ran about a 10 inch long section of hose from the idle air motor to the ram air intake and clamped it down. This allowed me to re-install the engine cover. As for performance it is negligible. Im sure with some sort of canned tune it will wake the truck up. I use the truck for towing snowmobiles and the occasional Miata so I will see how it performs with a heavy load. Heat soak will definitely be an issue with this "ram air" intake as the air making its way in from the gap between the hood and the grille will be minimal. More disappointing is the fact that the engine's soundtrack has not changed much. A very slight growl under 3/4 to full throttle is noticeable, which tells me that the stock intake wasn't very restrictive at all. Fit and finish is good, product seems quality. Good luck getting the intake air temperature sensor out of the stock intake tube, mine was practically glued in there. Product as described, not sure about performance gains though.
