Novice skill is required for this installation.
JLT includes everything needed for installation, including the air box itself, the cold air inlet, the couplers and clamps, and a reusable air filter. This kit can be used with or without your factory sound tube, and will require a tune for installation.
For this installation, you need a Phillips head screwdriver, T20 Torx bit, 1/4" ratchet, 7-mm socket, 8-mm socket, 10-mm socket, 6" extension, and needle nose pliers.
We'll begin the installation by removing all of our factory components. The first step to getting your factory cold air intake off is to remove your intake cover, disconnecting the throttle body. Loosen the clamp at the throttle body. Now we can start disconnecting all the PCV hoses from the air intake here. We'll disconnect this as well. These are simply push in to remove. Now we'll remove our mass air sensor. There's a little red tab underneath. Simply pull the tab backward, and you can pull the plug out. Once you unplug the mass air meter, make sure you remove the clip from the air box so you don't yank the wiring out when you pull the air box out. The last step in removing our stock air box is to remove the retaining bolt located here towards the fender. We carefully remove our air box. Make sure we're off the throttle body first.
Before you put your stock air box aside, you want to remove the factory mass air sensor. That gets transferred over to our JLT. We're going to install it into our JLT. It's only going to fit in one way for the holes to line up. To mount the JLT air box, we'll grab the metal insert from the factory air box. We want to move that over. Be sure to get the insert and the bushing. Install the bushing and the metal sleeve in the hole at the top of the JLT box. Carefully lower it down into place. You kind of have to squeeze the box to get in and down. That lines up with the factory hole.
Once the box is mounted, you want to slide the air intake up until it connects to your factory one. Now you want to put the silicone reducer and the two clamps onto the small end of the JLT. Make sure the screw heads are facing up for the ease of access to tighten it down. Once you have it seated, you can tighten down the inside clamp. No need to over-tighten, just get them snug. Now you can put the filter on the opposite end. Then don't over-tighten, just get it snug. Now we want to make sure all the hoses are out of the way and connect to our throttle body. Now we'll go through and reconnect all of our factory connections. We'll start with the mass air, and make all the connections at the intake. The JLT uses factory connectors, so everything will plug right in. Double check all your connections are tight. We're going to reinstall our intake cover, and our installation's finished.
Our JLT intake looks great, adds a nice sound under the hood, and best of all, it's going to add some horsepower to our 2015 Mustang GT. Keep in mind because you're changing the size of the inlet tube, you do have to tune the car before you drive it. Installation takes around 30 minutes. You'll be back on the road in no time.
