Installation Videos

Video Transcript

Even in stock form and performance the 2015 and up EcoBoost F150 is extremely impressive. Thanks to the lightweight aluminum body panels, these trucks weigh over 700 pounds less than the previous model, and with 365 horse power and 420 pounds-feet of torque these trucks are from 0 to 60 in 5,5 seconds which is really impressive for a truck that weighs over 5,000 pounds. Like the previous models, they also respond really well to basic modifications so today we are going to install this Roush performance cold air intake kit on this 2016 EcoBoost F150.

The Roush cold air intake kit will fit either the 2.7 or 3.5 liter EcoBoost in your 2015 through 2016 F150. It uses some of the factory components and adds their componentry to make it flow 25% more than the factory intake. According to Roush that's good for 28 horse power and 27 pounds-feet of torque with no tune required. It includes this high-flow filter, a 105 mm map tube, the sealed air box, and also the hardware for installation.

For this installation you need a 1/4 inch ratchet, 7 mm socket, 8 mm socket, 10 mm socket, 13 mm socket, short extension, small flathead screwdriver, and scissors.

We are going to start the installation by disconnecting the battery. Then we are going to move on removing the factory air box and the factory clean air tube. We are going to separate the air box removal by start, take these little clips off of the front here. That will separate the top from the bottom, and we are going to unbolt over here. The bottom one is a little harder to see, the cramp is like a tough one, it's coming from the side. Before you remove everything, make sure you're on the back here and turn the IAT to remove that, if not you're gonna damage it. With that out of the way, now we're going to remove the top and the tube.

Now we're going to move the lower air box which is a 3-step process. We're going to remove the bolt here to get the air box frame, remove 2 clips up here for the inlet and pull the whole thing out in one piece. Make sure that when you do that don't forget the 2 clips back here, you need to remove as well. That's for the IAT sensor, again you don't want pull it out with it attached, you could damage it. Moving to the front, we're going to remove these 2 plastic push pins. Pop it up, go underneath it and release it. Pop these clips off.

Like I mentioned before the Roush integrates really well with the factory components, so we need a few pieces of the air box for the Roush cold air kit. One is going to be the air inlet. We're also going to need this grommet on the side here. Grommet's easy to remove, just push the metal sleeve through and push the bushing out. The air inlet is held on by a single soft tap in screw. Before you put the stock air box aside, check the bottom, there's 2 rubber grommets that fit on here. They should have stayed in the truck. If they did come off on here, make sure you get them back off and put them in the stock location. Or put them on the new air box when you're installing it. Now we're going to remove the factory air silencers from each tube. Basically it's like the cheap tornadoes you see on TV designed to just kind of quiet the air down, but we're not worried about that with the cold air kit. They will simply just pop out.

Begin your installation by having the Roush cold air intake by taking the air inlet, putting that into place, and then re- installing your original screw to hold it in. Before we install the air box we're going to install the bolt and grommet we took out earlier as the air box will sit in this. Now we're going to install the air box into our truck by allowing these 2 tabs into the grommets that are down there. The other piece is going to sit right up on the end here. Make sure the inlet is seated properly sitting flat and re-install these. Push them down to hold it in place and move on to the filter. Now we'll install the filter into the housing. When you do this the filter actually has an arrow. Make sure the arrow is facing down. Then we can tighten it up. Now put the filter into place in the housing. Use the supplied bolts to bolt it to the air box. Now we're going to fish the IAT sensor over to the front where the opening is. Let's seat it properly, turn and lock it in place.

Now we're going to assemble the cold air piping with the clamps. Tighten them and clamp on the pipe side and put her on the car and clamp the other side there. Now we're ready to put it on the truck. We're going to fit the cold air pipe in. Last step is to install the seal on top of the air box. Start in the middle here and work your way around. Once we reach the end here we have to trim it to fit. Trim it, grab the supplied tube here. Last fit into place, and your installation is finished.

So the Roush intake looks the part, let's see if it sounds any different. You definitely hear a little bit more of an intake sound, and it might be I can hear the turbo a little bit louder as well. The Roush cold air intake looks great under the hood, and as you could tell when we were installing it it's definitely less restrictive than the factory intake, so it gives us some horse power and some torque as well. Installation is pretty straight forward, it should take you no more than about an hour, and you be back on the road in no time.

Vehicle Fitment

This product will fit the following F-150 years:

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great add-on! Good part. Best deal around. Notice a throttle response difference on my Raptor too. Note, on 17 Raptor IAT is in different spot than directions show. But kit comes with iat jumper so it reaches cai.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from BREATH! Lets the turbo wind up move some air. This along with the sport button has brought my 3.5 ecoboost up a notch. Definitely has more sound when the turbos kick in. I expect it to pull my RV much easier through the hills and mountains. Not sure about the mpg situation but this will just be another plus to the hp boost. Very good choice for my F-150.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Roush Intake Easy to install with online video by Cj Pony Parts. It sounds better and I can feel a minor difference in power at higher RPM's. I haven't put much miles on the truck since, but I'm not seeing any improvement in MPG. Actually my gas mileage has gotten worse.
Date published: 2016-10-08
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Raptor Had Problem with this. After about 1500 miles on my new 2017 Raptor had a check engine light to come on, It was a sensor in relation to crankcase ventilation which was replaced, Shortly afterwards & several more miles later had ford dealer to install this Roush cold air intake & afterwards & several more miles later check engine light came on again (Same problem as above) & again Ford dealer replaced the same sensor & again about 1,000 miles later check engine light was back on again for same problem & at this time dealer had contacted FMC asking for their help trying to solve this reoccurring problem while keeping my raptor for a few days & trying to figure out the problem. The ford dealer called me after having truck for about 5 days asking me if I still had the factory stock cold air return (Which I did) They told me to bring it to them so they could put it back on my truck because they & FMC headquarters felt like the Roush cold air intake was causing the sensor problem with my truck. They put the stock air box back on my truck & I've only drove it about 65 miles as of this review, BUT I feel like my check engine light will come back on after a few more miles as it had several times before because I'll tell you why. The problem with the crankcase ventilation Sensor first occurred prior to having the Roush cold air intake installed. I just don''t feel like this aftermarket item made by Roush was/is the problem. Can I get any feedback from another 2017 Raptor owner that's installed this cold air intake? I'm going to give this item a good rating because I don't feel this has been my problem.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Looks and sounds great! It was quick and easy to install and sounds awesome. I can feel the difference in throttle response. Highly recommended it.
Date published: 2016-12-10
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product added HP and economy Have only put a little over 200 miles on it and already averaging almost 1mph better than stock. Took longer to remove the old one than it did to install this one
Date published: 2017-01-12
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice Roush Cold Air Intake Bought this and installed it on my 2015 Ford F-150 Xlt 2.7 ecoboost and installation was pretty simple. Noticed some HP gain but nothing tremendous. Still looks good and enhances the sound just a tad. Overall very happy with the purchase.
Date published: 2017-10-24
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome delivery time This is the second cold air intake I have ordered from them, for two of my vehicles. The delivery time is amazing. Great company to work with.
