JLT Performance Black Textured Cold Air Intake Kit for 2018, 2019 and 2020 GT Mustangs.

The 2018-2020 GT Mustang utilizes a 5.0L Ti-VCT V8 engine which is proving to be the best engine Ford has put out yet. A new dual-fuel, high-pressure direct injection and low-pressure port fuel injection translates into 460HP and higher-RPM power at 420lb-ft of torque. An engine, though, is only as good as the parts its connected to, so boost your GT even further by adding JLT Performance's Black Textured Cold Air Intake Kit (P/N: CAI-FMG-18) specifically designed to fit your 2018-2020 GT Mustang.

Features:
- OEM-Style Black Textured Plastic Construction
- Computer Designed to Optimize Space
- Made in the USA
- Fits 2018-2020 GT Mustangs

Included:

- Plastic Intake Tube - 120mm MAF Size
- Silicone Reducer Coupler
- S&B Powerstack 5"x7" Air Filter
- Heat Shield with Duct and Weatherstrip
- Heavy Duty Clamps and Installation Hardware

This cold air intake, available at CJ Pony Parts, will provide more power and enhanced performance to the 5.0L V8 engine in your GT. It's computer designed for optimized fit in the engine bay. The intake is constructed from OEM-style black textured plastic that's unpainted for a sleek, modern style under your hood. The kit comes complete with everything you need to completely replace your factory intake without any adjustments. It includes a JLT plastic intake tube with 120mm MAF size, a silicone reducer coupler, a heat shield with duct and weatherstrip, heavy-duty clamps and all the necessary installation hardware. Also included is a top of the line S&B Powerstack air filter made to exact specifications for perfect fit and function. The filter has a tapered design and Powerstack filtered ends, with a 5" opening on the tube, so it can handle the large air filter needed for this intake. In the end, you get a huge 5" x 7" air filter that includes a built-in screen for straighter airflow as it passes through the precisely placed and molded 120mm MAF area. JLT designed this intake system for bolt-on installation, so no permanent modifications are necessary to use the kit and upgrade your S550's performance.

*A custom tune is required with this intake (not included).

Note: This item is not CARB (California Air Resource Board) exempt and is not legal for sale or use in the state of California.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy install except for the sound tube plug Super easy install except for the sound tube. Super hard to get to the retaining nut as stated in the video but if you twist and turn the sound tube the retaining tab will slide past the retaining nut on the firewall. The plug for the hole in the firewall is hard plastic and it was easily installed after I put in boiling water to soften it up.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Do I have Tyrannosaurus Rex arms?? Ok first off, I do really like this cold air intake its a much better looking, performing, and fitting C.A.I. over the stock part. The install was overall VERY straightforward and simple. However, the instructions from the part are not very clear and detailed. (Thank you CJs for your install videos, I just followed step by step with you and it worked great). As for the dreaded sound tube delete... YES, it is just as much of a pain in the .... as the video says. I felt like my arms were just an inch too short to really get the bolt off. As Bill says in the video get a very small ratcheting 10mm wrench and just go in from underneath. (follow the headers) This was difficult for me since I am right handed and I had to do this left handed. Once this is done now you have to plug the hole. I found this more difficult to do than take off the bolt. I placed the plug in some hot water first (this made the plug more pliable for the hole) again, patience and some long arms work well here. Other than that, very simple straightforward install. I have read on other websites that the fit is not great on this product causing the hood not to close. I did not have this issue, the fit was perfect for me. Take your time on the install and it should work great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from JLT CAI Install is very quick and easy, sound tube delete is a bit of a pain but not too bad! Setup with a tune from Dyno Edge and gained 30 RWHP!

Does the JLT Performance CAI with the SCT BDX Tuner for the 2018-19 Mustang GT work for the European spec Mustangs in Europe.

Asked by: Stang
Unfortunately I cannot accurately answer your question. Without the vendor supplying any information regarding fitment for non-US Spec cars and CJ's not having a car to test parts on, we cannot confirm this part working on your vehicle at this time.

I purchased a SCT BDX Tuner already. If I purchase this intake, should the tuner have the tune file integrated, or will I need a separate custom tune file?

Asked by: BWG1
You would have to plug in your tuner and check.

Do you know of any CAI's that are compatible with a 2018 Mustang Gt with the Active Exhaust feature? I tried a K and N and it wouldn't work as I assume it was a fuel/air mix issue and the check engine light would not go out.

Asked by: Oxford White
The intake you have chosen will work but will require a custom tune.

Does the tuner (SCT BDX Tuner) come with instructions on how to tune the engine with this product, or is this something a professional has to do?

Asked by: ToddZ
It comes with instructions and the tuner will guide you along the tuning process.
