Simple installation for anyone.
Hey guys, Jeff with American Muscle.com, here with my detailed review of the MBRP installer series single side engine exhaust cap back, available for your five liter powered F150 and your choice of either a natural finish or a black powder coat. Now the installer series from MBRP is designed to be either budget or entry level exhaust system, and it's going to be for those new F150 owners out there who are looking to make a lot more noise, but not really spend a whole lot of money in the process. Now the system I have with me here today is their single side exit system. It's going to dump the exhaust in the factory location, and at the time of this video it's going to be one of the most affordable cap back options on the site. MBRP does offer a dual exit system from the installer series, but more material means more money, but it is available if you're looking for it. Breaking down the kit a little further here guys, we'll notice three inch mandrill bin tooting from tip to tip. Again, that aluminize steel material that we just talked about. The dual include a three and a half inch tip embossed with the MBRP logo, you're also going to get a single bullet style muffler and resonator here with the single installer system, which is going to help round up the sound a little bit, and keep some of the rack and drone down. You know, with that being again guys this is a single exit system. So it is going to dump out behind that passenger rear tire, just like your factory system. And as you heard at the top of this video, this thing definitely has some good sounds, so for that reason, we'll call it a strong 3 out of 5, on a 1 to 5 or 1 to wake the neighbors scale. It's not going to be the loudest system out there, but it'll definitely give you some good tone. Moving on into the install, now guys for the most part half back systems on the new F150 is pretty much a walk in the park. There's a couple of bolts, and for the most part it puts itself together. That being said, it is a little cumbersome, so we'll give it a 1 out of 3 wrenches on our overall difficulty meter, maybe an hour or two of your time, depending on your lift set up. Now keep in mind you might have to cut MBRP does make this system again fit a wide variety of trucks, so depending on your bed and cab size, you might have to break out the saw while I turn this thing up a little bit. For instance we did, we had a super crew, five and a half plug bed, we had to trim a little bit off to fit our factory rig here, but again, not a big deal whatsoever, figure an hour or two, using some basic hand tools, and you should be making some noise in no time. All right guys at the end of the day the MBRP single exit installer series is a great buy. Sure the materials might not be as nice as some of the more premium options out there, but when you look at the tone, you look at the fit and that rock bottom price, it's a great value for someone that's looking to make the entry into an aftermarket exhaust system, but not make a huge investment into a more premium brand.

One of my favorite upgrades so far!
Loved this upgrade so much, bought one for my sis when she picked up her '05. I think this is the review for hers? So i'll speak on her behalf ;) I actually purchased this years ago at around 60k miles. Intake went in fine, no ODB codes thrown after install, nice and easy! Issues I ran into: - Intake actually fell off the throttle a month after install - my error entirely. Recommended to use wrench rather than screwdriver to really crank the straps down :) - Sleeve frayed a bit on the intake side due to above issue. Flipped around after cranking down and haven't run into any issues since. Benefits received: - Noticeable increase in performance - Saved a ton on filter replacements - About 90k miles on this purchase, still cleans and runs like a champ, even with the nasty forest fire smoke that plagues us for a month or so each year. - Comes with a sticker! - Local auto store carries cleaners, easy to restock.Helpful (3)

K N FIPK quick and easy
Easy to install and could tell the power difference.Helpful (9)
Is this like the roush cai where its got the inner tube so you will not have to have a tune?
This is set up where a tune is not required for operation.
What is the difference between this one and the series 63
The K&N Series 63 AirCharger High Performance Cold Air Intake will not be California smog legal, whereas the K&N FIPK Cold Air Intake will carry a CARB EO number, making this California smog legal. This will be the biggest difference between the two.
will this fit onto the BBK 62mm throttle body? is there a bigger coupler?
This will fit on the BBK throttle body just fine with out the need of a bigger coupler!
So I have purchased this item from AM I’m wondering what Tuner to buy My car is a 2006 Mustang Gt 4.6 with Automatic Transmission no other mods Daily Driver And I don’t have experience with Tuners Any Help would be Appreciated
Does this use the RF-1048 air filter?
Yes, it does use K&N's part number RF-1048 for the filter. See our item number 384141.
It is an oiled filter, it does not need to be oiled prior to installation but will need to be re oiled when cleaned.
The component you are speaking of is refereed to as a coupler which will connect the air intake tube to the throttle body.
The K&N FIPK Cold Air Intake will be able to be compatible with a Shaker system.
The K&N FIPK Cold Air Intake will free up some horsepower on its own. One can notice the difference just by comparing the factory restrictive air box and comparing it to this non restrictive open intake. On the stock intake you will notice a baffle, a sound tube, of course the small paper filter with a square intake point. This frees up a lot air flow for the motor by eliminating all of those components with a straight through tube.
this is a no tune required CAI. it shouldn't throw any codes. make sure you follow the instructions and disconnect the negative battery cable before installing and you should be fine. if you really want to get power gains and increased fuel mileage you should get the CAI/Tuner combo.
No problems whatsoever, You'll probably notice a slight power gain going from sea level to 6200 ft as the air being taken in is MUCH lower temperature than the air at sea level. A tune would simply unlock more power than you currently have. Simply put, adding a "no tune required" cold air intake to your vehicle, will not add any power directly. The vehicles ECU is still programmed to pull in a specific amount of air. Having the CAI just allows it to do this more efficiently. Adding a tune to the CAI is what really wakes up your vehicle, changing it's programming to take in more air for combustion and in higher altitudes the colder the intake air the more power you get!
