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..Helpful (0)

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.Helpful (0)

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.Helpful (5)

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.Helpful (12)
will it work with k n cleener and oil
Aside from minor differences, cleaners and filter oils are the same across brands. There should be no issues with using K&N cleaner and oil on this item.
does this item INCLUDE PLUG AND PLAY MAF WIRE HARNESS EXTENSION or do i need to cut my harness and or hose?? .
This kit does include the MAF wiring harness extension.
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?
This intake will work with the stock hood. An aftermarket hood will not be required.
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.
For the 5.4L you would want to look at T26002B JLT Ram Air Intake.
This item will not your MAF sensor.
This item will not affect your temperature sensor in any way.
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.
We have not tested this product with an aftermarket throttle body and a spacer installed.
We apologize that the spacer included in this kit is not fitting properly. If you can please reach out to us via Email, Phone or LiveChat with pictures and the order number, we would be able to assist further as we may need to send you a replacement.
Yes, the JLT Performance Ram Air Intake is legal in CA and features a CARB EO number D-761.
The only difference between the 4.6 and the 5.4 JLT Performance Ram Air Intake for the 97-03 F150s is fitment. The one for the 4.6 will only fit the 4.6L engine and the same for the 5.4 will only fit the 5.4L engine. They both provide the same gains.
At this time we do not offer separate filters for the JLT Ram Air Intake. These can be sourced directly from JLT.
