Owner, 95 Customs
Our shop mostly works on classic cars and European models, so when I bought the F150, I decided some American Muscle was in order. Checked the box for the 5.0. Then of course researched viable ways to add power. This device kept showing up as a strong choice, so I pulled the trigger on the JLT CAI and theMPT 93 PRX tunes. I installed the CAI and the tunes. It took maybe 15-20 minutes to install the CAI. Simple install, good instructions, and easy accessibility to the areas needed. And the fit is remarkably good. I've bought much more expensive CAI kits for European models from big names that didn't fit as well as this kit did. Even the seal to the underside of the hood is really well done. All I can say is I am blown away at how significant the difference is, especially for the $. The truck is almost unrecognizable. The growl is instantaneous. Be aware that, like any CAI, you're going to get some added intake noise in the cabin. This one allows a lot of noise, but in a good way - Like when you apply throttle! There is some throttle tip-in bark around 1600-1800 RPM I had to get used to, but the pay-off is so worth it. Once I installed the CAI, I installed the tune - the 93 PRX. It's fantastic. Throttle response is much sharper. The CAI lets you know it's there and really adds some welcome engine noise out. The power gain from the CAI along with the 93 PRX tune is tangible. I haven't dyno'ed to measure gains, but I can tell you the acceleration is measurably stronger - you can feel it, and it is faster on the watch. It's real gains - not just smoke and mirrors. The kit of the JLT CAI and the PRX tune are a great pair, and some of the best performance bang for the buck I have spent in any vehicle - And I do a lot of vehicles! Class organization making a class product.
