The Injen Power-Flow Cold Air Intake Kit you see here today is available for any 2015 or newer 3.5 EcoBoost owner looking to pick up a more showcar-looking, performance-optimized cold air intakes that offers a small bump in horsepower and torque, while also improving throttle response and even a little fuel economy. With that said, this is gonna be one of the more premium options, thanks to, of course, the improved air filters and the MR Technology that we'll talk about in this video, but also because of the only option on the site that offers a mirror-like shine like this one. Now, also, the installation here, I'll let you know, is gonna be very simple, although you'll have to do it twice since there's two intakes. It'll still get a one out of three wrenches on our difficulty meter, and we'll touch on that toward the end of the video.There are two really distinct reasons that this particular kit stands out against the other options out there, and the first one and the most obvious one is the fact that there's two full-scale, large, individual intakes and filters here for your engine, which, honestly, a lot of the options out there do not offer. What this basically does is maximizes the amount of cold-dense, oxygen-rich air going to both the manifold directly and directly to your 3.5's turbo. Injen also has these manufactured out of a high-quality billet 6061 aluminum piping, obviously for added quality and durability. And the fact that these aren't a closed-off design, which offers, basically, a bigger engine noise and even an intake noise. If you're looking for the more traditional, quiet options, K&N or AIRAID might serve that purpose, but this one, obviously, just wants to give it a more aggressive sound.Now, this option from Injen also offers a technology exclusive to them, known as the MR Technology, which is basically this step-down style we have at the ends of the tubing on each side, which is Injen's way of adding the power potential and increasing what it can maximize. Now, obviously, this isn't gonna offer the world of different when it comes to power, but you can expect somewhere in the 11 horsepower and torque range, without needing a custom tune. And that's since all 3.5's on the market are a no-tune-required intake, simply because they utilize a speed density, instead of the mass air flow. Speed density actually helps the computer to make changes on the fly, so it, you know, holds back on needing a custom tune, saving you money in the process.In addition to the tubing we already talked about, you're also picking up big nanofiber air dry filters, which obviously there's two of them because there's two intakes. So this is actually gonna be manufactured from a surgical cotton gauze with a diamond wire mesh outer, which really just helps the filtration capabilities. Another cool thing about these is the fact that they are rewashable and reusable, which basically means that you don't have to go out and pick up two new filters every few thousand miles to do the routine maintenance. All you have to do is unclamp them from these clamps here using a flathead screwdriver, pop them off, wash them from the inside out, and, of course, just pop 'em right back on. Since they are dry filters, you won't have to worry about reoiling those, so you're saving money on not only the new filters, but also just filter oil after thousands of miles.Now, if you're wondering what the other factor that comes into play is that makes this different from the other ones, it's pretty obvious. It's the mirror-like shine and the polished finish on top here. This is the only option currently on the website that offers a polished finish since stealthy black pretty much dominates the category otherwise. If you don't like this finish here, pick literally any other one on the site, and you'll be good to go. With that said, the polished finish does factor into the price tag here, along with the higher quality materials, so it comes in just north of the $500 mark. If you're looking to save some money and you're not really looking to shop that high of quality, you can pick up more traditional options that offer a single intake tube that splits from manifold to turbo, instead of having two individual ones.You wanna keep in mind, no matter what intake you go with, the install is pretty much consistently the same, so you wanna have about an hour's worth of time from start to finish on deck, as well a ratchet and socket set, maybe a flathead screwdriver as well for the clamps. With that said, one out of three wrenches on our difficulty meter. If you know how to do an intake, the only difference here is you have to do it twice. To kick this off, obviously, it might be easier for you to assemble the entire intake tube and the couplers and the filters and all of that outside of the vehicle on a table. If not, you can do it inside the vehicle as well, but obviously, outside works a little bit easier for some people, with the exception of the airbox here, which will come in last. With that said, you wanna kick things off by assembling this and then taking it over to the truck's engine bay, pop open the hood, and remove the factory one from the engine. All that's really capable of is removing the air filter box, unclamping the filter from the intake tubing, unclamping that from the throttle body and manifold as well as the turbo, and just setting it all aside. New hardware and everything is provided for you in the kit. As you can see here, you get new couplers, which is great for the high quality, and, of course, you get new clamps right there to replace the old, rusted out ones. Once that's taken care of, it's just a matter of popping in your intake, obviously bolting it down to the throttle body and bolting the other down to the turbo. Pop the filters on each end, clamp those down, and then pop in the airbox we see here, which goes, obviously, right around the filters. From there, you're good to go. Obviously, it's the exact same process from one to the other, so an hour at the absolute maximum. Just to wrap things up here, if you're the owner of a 2015 or newer 3.5-liter EcoBoost F-150, you might wanna check out the Injen Power-Flow Cold Air Intake in the polished finish, which you can find right here at americantrucks.com.

Does it fit on a 2017 3.5L ecoboost ?
Hello! The Injen Power-Flow Cold Air Intake will not work on a 2017 3.5l Ecoboost.
Does this require any tuning on the 2015 ecoboost?
We generally do recommend a tune when upgrading to a new cold air intake to get the best performance from the part.
F150 2016 3.5 Eco No install 4 the CrankCase Tube Install Anyone have instructions???
A complete installation guide can be found at the link below: https://www.injen.com/pub/media/Pdf/PF9015-install_guide.pdf
Is this intake California carb compliant?
Unfortunately, this CAI does not list CARB compliance.
I have a 2016 F150 eco boost twin turbo. Installing this will I have to do anything to the computer? Can I just install an go without doing anything?
The Injen Power-Flow Polished Cold Air Intake does not require a tune but is highly recommended to get the best performance out of the intake.
The Injen Power-Flow Cold Air Intake is designed specifically for the 3.5L. Because this is not designed for the 2.7L, we have not tested this on that engine. Injen does offer a kit specific to the 2.7L.
It can honestly depend on if a tune is required or used. Generally most cold air intakes won't void the factory warranty by themselves. With that being said, we highly recommend checking with your dealership to confirm what will and won't void the warranty on your vehicle.
That will vary depending on your exact twin turbo set-up. but in most cases, this air intake system will not work with that application. Due to different mounting positions based on the turbo placements, this will generally not have enough clearance to safely be used. We recommend contacting the manufacture of the turbo's and seeing if they have any additional air intakes that are applicable for your set-up.
Yes, this intake will fit all 2015-2018 3.5L EcoBoost F-150 models excluding the Raptor.
We apologize for the confusion. The previous questions were submitted before we were able to test this cold air intake on a 2017Ecoboost to guarantee fitment. This cold air intake will definitely work with your 3.5L Ecoboost F150.
Yes, this intake will fit all of the 15-18 3.5L EcoBoost F-150s except for the Raptor.
We would need to know the code or codes present after installing your Injen Power-Flow Cold Air Intake to further assist you. Please contact our Customer Service Department so we may best assist you with this.
Yes! We have a few options of cold air intakes from Roush and AFE for the 2017 Ford Raptor. Just follow the link below! http://www.americanmuscle.com/f150-intake-2015.html#shop-by5
Hey Rick, So this cold air intake will not work for the 17 raptor. Though the bare motor is very similar the difference in tune, power, and supporting components would not allow this intake to properly work within the raptor
It will not, it is specifically designed for the 15-16 3.5L EcoBoost.

At first I was a little hazy about purchasing an “injen” intake. I thought it was more of a JDM brand and what could they know about modern muscle. Definitely wrong lol.. this intake blows the doors off of any intake if ever purchased. There is no question that my intake is flowing most air possible. The rest of my truck needs to catch up to this intake!

2018 F150 Supercrew 3.5 EcoBoost
This kit was a bit difficult for the 2018. It did eventually fit but certainly was not built specifically for the 2018. The elbow tube was a bit shorter and stiffer than it should have been to fit. Had a difficult time getting the 2 Stainless pipes together. Eventually I was able to and it looks nice. Also I removed the two turbo silencers. Looks good, definitely improves throttle response.

Best Intake system
This intake system is great because it makes my truck go faster than before and it improves the inside hood appearance as well.
