Turbos are nothing new when it comes to enhancing the power of your vehicle. Ford’s EcoBoost V6 engines come with a pair of turbos, designed to give you all the power of a V8, but with the fuel economy of a V6. This is definitely why they are an extremely popular engine choice in the newer Ford trucks. Able to reach 365 horsepower and 420 lb-ft of torque, definitely shows why they are a popular choice. The 2015 and 2016 Ford Expeditions are the latest vehicles to benefit from 3.5L EcoBoost engines, and they do a decent job of getting these larger SUV's racing down the road.
Twin turbos require a good amount of air to run at their peak efficiency, yet the intake system rom the factory stifles them with restrictive baffles and components that are just too small. This intake system takes aim at the most restrictive sections of the OEM intake system, delivering impressive power gains with an easy bolt-on installation. The AIRAID CAD Intake for the 2015-2016 3.5L Ford Expedition is a complete kit that greatly enhances airflow to the engine, while being completely 50-state legal. The system uses the lower half of the factory intake box, but switches out the upper section with Cold Air Dam panels.
The 2015-2016 Ford Expedition EcoBoost Cold Air Dam panels easily snap into place, making room for a gigantic AIRAID air filter. Blade-style weather stripping is positioned along the top of the panels and seals against the hood to keep the air filter isolated from hot engine compartment air. This design takes full advantage of the OEM cold air inlet duct in the lower section of the air box, but also adds extra forward-facing areas for unrestricted cool outside air to reach the AIRAID filter.
The AIRAID premium filter included with the CAD system for the 3.5L EcoBoost is specially designed and shaped to increase filter surface area to substantially increase airflow. In addition, the filter is available with a variety of colors and types of filter media. The 400-339 CAD system includes a traditional SynthaFlow oiled filter in red. The 401-339, 402-339, and 403-339 all make the most of dry media filters in red, black, and blue respectively. All four filter options offer excellent airflow and filtration characteristics, so which filter to use really boils down to personal preference and taste.
Once free-flowing cool outside air is properly filtered, it is fed to the EcoBoost twin turbos with a new bifurcated intake tube. Constructed of roto-molded cross-linked polyethylene, the tube is engineered to eliminate turbulence and optimize airflow to the turbos. New couplers connect the intake tube to the turbos, while a premium hump hose attaches the tube to the filter adapter on the intake box. The hump hose absorbs vibrations from the engine, ensuring a durable, trouble-free connection. There are provisions for all of the necessary sensors and breather tubes, making for a simple upgrade with no modifications needed.
These systems are among the more aggressive-sounding intakes in the AIRAID product line, as the restrictive factory baffles are eliminated in order to increase airflow to the engine. Regardless of which kit you choose, they all improve power and performance as well as part-throttle response on the 2015-2016 Ford Expedition EcoBoost. All while being legal to use in all 50 states! Like the rest of AIRAID's product line, these new EcoBoost intake systems are proudly Made in the USA and all AIRAID filters are backed by an exclusive "No Hassle" warranty. Features:
