This AFE intake is a great buy and I would recommend it to someone looking to BEGIN modifying their car. The intake dresses up the engine nicely, has a nice sound to it and is very easy to install. Performance wise, I think my car is a little slower in lower RPMs (1000-3500rpm) but faster in the 3500-6000 rpm range. I would recommend buying a software upgrade to compliment this intake

Noticeable power increase to the bottom end. The engine sounds the same until you get on it and then it screams to life. Install took a little longer than expected but i hate to read directions. After reading, everything went as it should. Listen when it says do not tighten down clamps all the way. I also like how the silver looked on the banks logo so when i got mine I decided to paint it. I used GM bright silver touch up paint and made sure to clean the surface before painting. Overall great product and definate power gain! As for fuel economy, haven't been on the road yet but I doubt I will see any given that I cannot keep my foot out of it. If your looking to add a roar to your engine that you can feel in the gas pedal then do not hesitate to buy. 100% satisfied!

will this unit work with stock air intake on 2004 Ford f150

Your stock intake has quite a bit of flexibility and should work just fine with the throttle body spacer. If you are looking for maximum power and economy, I would recommend installing a cold air intake system, cat-back exhaust and a flash programmer instead of just the throttle body spacer. Your factory intake is pretty restrictive and its a good idea to replace it with a free flowing unit. Unfortunately, you won't be able to combine a throttle body spacer with a cold air intake system because the intake tubes tend to be rigid in construction and will be pushed away from the factory filter position.

Ram air?

Hey, does pipe size matter and how do I know if its air injected?

Staff Answer

Hello. The larger diameter of the piping would allow air to pass faster. But that also increases sound as well. You would need to check your existing manifold to see if it has an electronic module installed on it to determine whether it is air injected. Thanks for your question.
