    Review & Installation Video

    Review & Install Video

    Hey, guys. Adam here with americanmuscle.com. Today, I'm bringing you a quick overview and installation of the Roush cold air intake kit fitting all 2015 and newer 3.5-liter EcoBoost F-150s. So in this video, we'll be going over the functionality and benefits you can expect from the Roush cold air intake kit we have here, as well as all the materials and construction since they kind of go hand in hand. Now, I'll top the video off with the installation, which I'll let you know up front here, will be one of the easier mods you can do to your EcoBoost engine so it will get a very easy one out of three wrenches on our difficulty meter. The Roush cold air intake kit will be for any 2015 or newer 3.5-liter EcoBoost F-150 owner who might be looking to swap out their factory air box to pick up an upgrade to give you a better air flow, leading to a better throttle response with something that is a very well-known brand, 50-state legal, while all reaping the benefits without a custom tune. Now, everything you see on the table with me today, as well as all the clamps and hardware that will be included in the kit that you don't see here, will all be a higher-quality material and construction as compared to the factory stock air box. Now, with that said, this is going to be a better ABS plastic with a textured finish. The Roush filter is really the star of the show, however, I'll touch on the materials and construction of that later. But it is worlds better than the factory option and it's washable and reusable, huge plus there. Moving on to the air box itself, this is something that will keep all the dust particles out and the heat out, making sure this is pulling in cold air from the outside, and everything else in between is also gonna be a big upgrade. I'll touch on everything a little bit later, but I do want to point out again that this is something that does not require a tune, or a custom tune I should say, in order to work properly. There's a huge bonus there and a big Roush name is definitely something that a lot of people will be after with the aftermarket world to replace a stock option. Speaking of no tune required, since your 3.5-liter EcoBoost utilizes a speed density meter instead of the mass air flow, it can make changes to its computer on the fly, whereas a mass air flow would require a custom tune. And because you don't require a tune, you don't have to worry about spending a couple hundred bucks or a couple hundred extra bucks on top of this in order to make it work properly. In this case, it's a simple, direct the bolt on and go. Now, the last point I want to make on tuning is if you do want to maximize the potential of the cold air intake, a tune is definitely, definitely a good option, not required, however. That's kind of the point I'm trying to make here. So if you have the couple extra bucks and you really want to maximize the potential, go ahead and pick up a tune, but if not, then it's really not something you have to worry about. You will see performance gains and benefits from this particular option. As far as the actual performance gains, you can expect single-digit numbers as far as horsepower and torque is concerned. What you can really expect is a better engine sound, an overall better air flow coming into the manifold, and most importantly, an improved throttle response, something you might be feeling in the pedal there just to give you that little oomph to get through the line. Now again, not something with crazy, world-changing benefits as far as horsepower and torque, but you can expect single-digit gains at best. So one thing I do want to point out here is that it is 50-state legal so it is great for the 3.5-liter EcoBoost owner out there in California or emissions-restrictive states like that. However, if you have any other engine other than the 2.7 or 3.5 EcoBoost, unfortunately, this kit is not going to be 50-state legal, so keep that in mind moving forward. So again, one of the best thing

    Pick a Power and Difficulty Level. Among auto enthusiasts, the name of Roush is one redolent of high-octane power and performance – a point amply proven by the Roush Performance Cold Air Intake Kit, in this case designed for the 2015-2017 F-150 fitted with a 3.5L EcoBoost engine. Configurable in several different ways, this CAI sucks in enough cold air to generate either +10 horsepower and +8 torque ft-lbs (with an 85mm MAF) or +15 hp and +18 ft-lbs of torque (with a 105mm MAF). This American-made part also boosts throttle response and fuel economy, as well as giving your engine a stronger induction sound.

    Tune Possibly Needed. No tune beyond the factory tune of the ECU (electronic control unit) is required if you decide to install the Roush Performance Cold Air Intake Kit with an 85mm MAF. If, however, you elect to get bigger power gains with a 105mm MAF then you’ll need to retune the engine with aftermarket tune in order to get the intake working properly.

    Tough, Reusable Oil-Free Filter. The Roush Performance Cold Air Intake Kit includes an air filter element that is made out of cotton fabric sandwiched around two nesting layers of wire mesh for extra strength. The wire also helps the filter retain its necessary shape after washing. This filter element is reusable – after 100K miles, you can remove it, wash it, dry it, and reinstall it without the need for re-oiling, repeating the washing as necessary.

    Built for Reliable Service. Roush’s Performance Cold Air Intake Kit is fronted by an injection molded polyethylene air box, made in the United States like the rest of the part. This air box includes an EPDM foam heat shield seal along the upper edge to provide better contact with the hood. The intake tube is rotationally molded, high density polyethylene secured by stainless steel clamps. The couplers are EPDM rubber to ensure that the intake remains in place through twisting and engine load.

    Pick Stock or 105mm MAF. The Roush Performance Cold Air Intake Kit gives you a choice between two sizes of MAF. You can choose to install it configured for a 105mm aftermarket MAF (sold separately) for maximum power gains, or with the 85mm stock MAF, which produces less power but also removes the need for a new tune.

    Bolts On with Included Hardware. Bolt-on installation is the method needed to fit the Roush Performance Cold Air Intake Kit to your F-150’s engine. This is accomplished with regular ratchet sets, wrenches, and screwdrivers, along with the kit’s hardware – no drilling or cutting is required.

    Limited 90 Day Warranty. The Roush Performance Cold Air Intake Kit is protected by a 90 day limited manufacturer’s warranty against defects.

    CARB Legal, 50 State Usable. The Roush Performance Cold Air Intake Kit meets all CARB certification guidelines and carries the CARB EO Number #D-418-30. If living in a CARB regulated area such as California, it is advisable to install the CAI so that the CARB compliance sticker is visible during engine inspection. This CARB exemption enables buying, installing, and driving with the Roush CAI in all 50 US states, making the component street-legal in all locations.

    Application. This Roush Performance Cold Air Intake Kit is specially designed to fit the 2015 to 2017 F-150s equipped with the 3.5L EcoBoost engine. It is not compatible on Raptor models.

        The open element scares me. I have friends who installed open aired intakes on their cars and a week later they hydro lock the engine. The open part of the box does not seal completely when driving in rain and the water hits your engine. So is the 2017 3.5 boost completely sealed under the hood?

        • The Roush Cold Air Intake will seal completely to the hood, allowing water to enter via the OEM duct in the grille only.

            Installation straight forward

            Great product offered by Roush themselves. I noticed a greater throttle response right away and increase in cabin noise. Respectfully, I gave this product a 4 out 5 stars due to a lack in manufacturer actually sending installation directions. I couldn't believe that the airbox didn't have predrilled holes for installation. In the directions it wants for you to print the template and drill 2 holes for the mounting bracket.

            Worst intake for The F150 5.0L!

            I got this as part of the performance pack 1 on my 2017 F-150 V8. The install and de-install was simple, but that’s about it. IMO this is the worst intake I’ve ever put on any of my trucks. The 5.0L does not like it!!!. My buddy has it on his Ecoboost and it’s fine. The airbox is poorly designed. It’s not completely sealed so it’s sucking warm air and junk from the engine compartment around the intake tube. The top seals to to the underside of hood which is cheap. The worst part is intake causes significant resonation/drone in the cab at about 1900-2200 and again at 3500-4000 rpms. If you tow, don’t even think about adding this. It will literally rattle you out of the cab!!! I put the OEM intake back on and now sound is back to normal. The OEM works just as well, but without the obnoxious drone. It gave me a headache driving my truck.

            Didn’t Improve Anything

            It is easy to install and the parts are good to go but that is about where it ends. On our truck, 2017 F-150 V8, our gas mileage decreased more than 1.5 miles per gallon on highway driving long distance on cruise. Because the air box is not completely closed it was causing significantly increased noise from the engine compartment and an additional vibration harmonic when we hit about 4000rpms causing stuff to rattle in the cab.

            Great mod, easy install

            Very easy installation that makes my truck sound a little tougher and definitely gives it an added boost when I step on the gas. Took about 45 minutes to install. The only concern I have is that the factory dirty air inlet, which you reuse, doesn't fit snugly into the Roush air box, so some warm air will get in.
