Hey, what's going on, guys? Adam here with AmericanMuscle.com. Today, I'm bringing you a detailed review of the Injen Evolution Cold Air Intake System, fitting all 2015 and newer 3.5-liter EcoBoost F-150s. So in this video, I'll be going over the functionality and expectations of the Injen Evolution System I have with me today, as well as the materials and construction, and I'll even touch on the installation, which I'll tell you upfront will get a solid one out of three wrenches on our difficulty meter, something any novice can take care of in the driveway at home. So let's jump right into it. The Injen Evolution Cold Air Intake System is gonna be for all 2015 and newer 3.5-liter EcoBoost owners out there looking to replace the restrictive stock air box with something a little bit more high quality, as well as a more free-flowing system that does not require a tune. The Injen Evolution Cold Air Intake System I have with me today is gonna offer an overall better throttle response, as well as a slight increase in fuel mileage, which will all prevent you from spending the extra money on a custom tune to work with your Turbocharged V6. Now, included in the kit will be an air box system that is completely improved over your factory option while enclosing in your new reusable, washable filter. Now, I'll touch on the materials and construction in just a second, but I do wanna point out that with the free-flowing system, it's gonna be a filth reminder and soil into your air box, which will basically let you know when it's time to do some maintenance on your filter, when it's time to clean it and pop it back in, which is very helpful when it comes to installing this kit, and it will install right there on top of your air box. Speaking of no tune required, this system here will utilize what's known as a speed density system instead of the mass air flow. Now, the speed density system basically means it'll make changes to your computer on the fly, completely relieving you of the hassle of picking up a custom tune to get this to work with your Turbocharged V6. Now, with that in mind, I do wanna point out that it won't make the world look different when it comes to power gains. Expect single digit gains when it comes to horsepower and torque, as well as a small increase in throttle response and fuel mileage. Overall, this one will include also a very aggressive note when it comes to your engine. It will improve engine sounds, as well as sounds coming from your turbo, which is always a plus. So one thing I do wanna point out before I move forward is that this one unfortunately is not going to be 50 state legal. That basically means, for the guys out there in emissions restrictive states like California, this one is only gonna be used for offered use and will not be street legal when installed on your V6 EcoBoost. Now, as far as the materials and construction goes here, you can expect this one to be made of a reusable, super nano web filter, out of oil pre-synthetic media that can be cleaned using compressed air or a vacuum. One of the best things about this kit however is gonna be that filth reminder, letting you know when it is time to do that maintenance without having to take apart the entire kit. So all this was manufactured right here in the U.S.A., out of a roto-molded cross-linked polyethylene for durability, and, of course, an improved installation. And all this is good for an unrestricted smoother airflow. Now, as far as the price goes for this option from Injen, this is gonna run you about $400, putting it at the higher end of the market compared to the other options out there. This basically means you're getting some topnotch air induction systems for your EcoBoost to really maximize its induction potential. Now, shifting gears over to the installation portion of the video. Like I said in the very beginning, this one is gonna be a very simple job for any novice to take care of and about 30 minutes tops in the driveway at home, which is why it gets one out of three wrenches on the difficulty meter, only requiring a simple ratchet and socket set. So what you're gonna have to do to get this job done is completely unbolt, unclamp, and unhinge all of your factory air box systems and its tubing. Once you get the tubing out of place, you can put in the new Injen Evolution System, clamping it all down using the hardware provided in the kit, get in the air box and filter all set up as well as the filth reminder. Everything good to go. You're looking at about 30 minutes, like I said, and about a one out of three wrenches on our difficulty meter. Just to wrap things up here, guys, if you're the owner of a 2015 or newer 2.7 or 3.5-liter EcoBoost F-150 and you're looking for a way to get rid of the restrictive factory air box system by picking up an aftermarket system that is a bit smoother and free-flowing, you might wanna check out the Injen Evolution Cold Air Intake available right here at AmericanMuscle.com.

Fits but doesnt fit
Do not buy this intake if you have a 2018 F150 3.5l EcoBoost engine unless you know how to solder wires, heat shrink cabling covers, and have some black zip ties. The mass air flow sensor port to this intake is about 9 inches farther away than the OEM port on the factory intake. Therefore there is not enough wiring from the original mass airflow sensor wiring to reach the hole/port on this intake. I had to buy additional wires and shrink tubing to extend out the original wiring. Also there are two snap connections on the top back of the OEM factory air box. These two hole are not on the new intake airbox. I had to remove these, put electrical tape on the OEM wire to cover the gap and then zip tie the wire together to bring it taught and take up the slack. My truck gets an average of 19 miles per gallon city and highway. I know this for a fact since I have a lariat. After 500 miles with the new i take I'm getting 0.5 miles per gallon better gas mileage on average between city and highway . This intake does have a gauge on it to tell you when to clean it but i haven't driven the truck long enough to determine its accuracy. The actual intake fits great but the wire connections do not. I expected more after spending 350ish bucks on an intake system.

This unit makes a more throaty nose and power seems to be a little more responsive. Mileage also seems to have been improved -- but I have only had this installed for a couple of weeks. I did have one towing usage and mileage was slightly improved.
