        Not a plug and play

        I have a 4.6 and the harness I receive for the maf is not compatible. My maf is part of the oem intake housing, I'd like to get this figured out or exchange..

        Ram air intake

        It all went together fine but did need to modify the hose from idle control valve in order to get hood cover to fit over throttle body properly. Also when I first drove it about half mile a big popping noise occurred so returned home and finally discovered the idle control valve was sticking so removed and free it up with carb cleaner. That solved the noise problem. Nothing to do with the intake. Probably need to buy a new idle control valve at some point.

        Review shared from JLT Performance Ram Air Intake (97-03 5.4L F-150)

        5 2000 - Kyle Installation Time: Afternoon

        Awesome product

        The intake came with everything it was supposed to come with! Only problem I had was my truck having a different MAF housing than what the MAF adapter provider was intended to be bolted to. I had to make a trip to the hardware store to get longer bolts and a set of nuts. After test driving I noticed a more throaty tone and some power increase in the top end. Seems like a good product and quality parts.

        This intake looks great and you can definitely feel the difference from a stoke air intake. Very easy to install as well.

        works well

        Took longer than is should due to my 4.6L needed a hose for final fit. You get almost everything you need in the package for the 4.6L, just need to get an extra hose.

      Hello How this affected by water under the hood? Like in a heavy rainstorm where water is coming up from underneath and through the grill. Thanks

      • This will not be affected by water as long as there is not a steady stream of water directly hitting the filter.

      does it require a ram air hood or can you still have stock hood?

      I bought one and the wiring harness it comes with doesn't plug I to anything. With the old intake out and this one on and no harness there's a huge hiccup when hitting gas. I'm guessing it's not reading maf because it was apart of the old intake. How can I make this work? 0 answer

      I already have a JTL Ram Air intake installed (love it) and am looking to purchase a separate filter. I have two filters for all my other vehicles with CAI, I like swapping in a clean one then cleaning the old one and keeping it on the shelf for next time. Can I buy just a filter? 1 answer
      I see this kit does work with the BBK throttle body, but will it work with a throttle body spacer behind it? I’m curious if there enough space between the filter and the fan shroud/radiator support because it would push the kit farther forward. 1 answer
