    will it work with k n cleener and oil

    Can this intake be used with the BBK 75 mm throttle body for the 5.4 and what is used to clean the air filter?

    • The JLT Performance Ram Air Intake will work with the BBK 75mm throttle body yes.

    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?

    • JLT absolutely offers this filter as a standalone replacement component. That replacement filter would be SBAFO412-R;JLT4 for the red oiled S&B Powerstack filter they use in a 4x12 "JLT4" model.

    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.

    • We have not tested this product with an aftermarket throttle body and a spacer installed.

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

      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.

      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.

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

      2000 Harley Davidson F150 5.4

      I've bought a lot of bolt ons in my life time. And this one is great. My torque is better and the throttle is lighter. It really opened things up. The instructions were very detailed. The install was easy and the hardware supplied was great too. The fit is perfect. Thanks for the extra length hose. That is needed.

      Very clean look

      Works great, looks good and really cleans up the engine bay, not having the stock air box gave me the perfect place to add a second relay/fuse box for off road lights and accessories as well as a great spot to put my gang blocks for the wiring literally took 10 minutes to install

      Great ram air

      This JLT comes with everything to hook up correctly and it looks great as well and the placement of the intake gets much more fresh air then the stock air box. JLT really know what they are doing and freed up some HP and throttle response in my truck. This won't be the last product from JLT I buy.

      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.
