Sensor Mount Backwards
Everything fit on the truck but the maf sensor mount was welded on upside down. The sensor only goes on one way, and if the sensor is on correctly the bolt holes don't line up so it can't be mounted. I just taped mine so it is still usable, just a manufacturing issue.Helpful (1)

The product itself is pretty good but delivery and instructions are not. I had to order twice because the first box arrived untapped and open with all the clamps and hardware missing. Second box was starting to come open but all parts were there. The kit delivered was for my F150, 5.4L engine but the written instructions inside were for a RAM truck and different kit. I went to the American Trucks website to use their instruction video and it is also wrong. The “expert” in the video puts the aluminum tube on backwards which then causes the MAF sensor to be upside down and in the wrong place. My truck would not start and run. After some research I realized these instructions are wrong and flipped the intake pipe end for end. It took a little adjusting to get the MAF sensor connector to clear the Power Steering Reservior but I was able to install the kit with nothing rubbing. The performance seems better but time will tell. The sound is more aggressive at high RPM which I like. I give a 4 on appearance as there were a few scratches on the aluminum pipe. It would have been a lot simpler and quicker to install if the directions were correct. Come on American Trucks, re-shoot that video with the correct installation.Helpful (1)

dont waste your money
don't waste your money on this product. II purchased this and the mass air flow sensor location is in the wrong spot. you have to flip the tube over so that the MAFS can be installed right side up, as it will not work properly if installed as the instructions indicate. When you flip the the tube over it does not fit properly and the MAFS hits the brake fluid reservoir.Helpful (0)

Good but not a game changer
Easy install. Increased loudness on WOT. Not much power gain. Waiting to see if I get any MPGsHelpful (0)

This is over all a good product. It had some imperfections but nothing so bad you could see them after install. I have noticed a bit more power at the back wheels and I can see a ticket or two in the near future if I don't figure out how to keep my foot off the gas. I barely put my foot on the gas and she reacts. Great boost in power along with the Spectre throttle body spacer. The air intake is snug against the top of the fire wall but it wasn't hard to put on after the spacer was applied. How ever I did remove 1 star because it came with out any mounting hardware and I had to dig through the old bolt bin and find something that would work on it. I also had to make an adapter for the vacuum line to hook to. I called AT and told them about the situation and they put in a order for the mounting hardware but when it arrived all the box had in it was the small wrench that was missing as well but still no mounting hardware. that,s why it only got 3 stars.Helpful (1)

Easy to install with very few tools. I watch video to help with installation. After installing my truck wouldn’t start. I made a quick call to customer service and they were able to help very quickly. Definitely tell a deference in power and gas mileage.Helpful (1)

Installation is simple. Follow instructions, take your time. One problem, the port for the air MAFS on the tube is welded in upside down. The MAFS will not work if installed upside down. Had to bore and tap new screw holes to make it fit correctly. All else was simple. Big difference when you start off on the gas. Hope it picks up gas mileage, installed yesterday. Rated 3 because of the MAFS problem.Helpful (2)
Does the product come with a card compliant sticker or stamp on it
The Spectre Performance Cold Air Intake includes a CARB OE Sticker for California Emission purposes.
what are the hp gains with this?
With the Spectre Performance Cold Air Intake, gains of 8-12 hp can be expected, with torque gains being in the same range.
I have the 4.6l f150 and I can’t find a cheaper intake and can’t find a spectre in take for the 4.6l. Does it matter and would it be ok to put the 5.4 intake on my 4.6?
This will not work for your 4.6 as it is designed specifically for a 5.4.
I live in Arizona and it get hot here will that cause a problem
No extreme heat you find in a place like Arizona would not cause a problem.
this intake fits my engine great, once i have it installed do i need to get the engine tuned ?
This would not require a tune after the install no.
The filter included with the Spectre Performance Cold Air Intake will have excellent dust filtration, however this will use a heat shield as opposed to an airbox, which will allow more dirt and water contaminants to hit the filter, causing it to need to be cleaned more often. For your use, a cold air with an airbox may be a better bet to reduce cleaning intervals.
With the Spectre Performance Cold Air Intake, you can expect gains of 8-12hp. Torque gains will be similar as well. MPG gains will be minimal, typically below 1 mpg gains.
