Today on CJ Off Road, we're gonna help out 2018 F150 breathe a little better with some help from Roush.

One of the easiest ways to improve the performance and efficiency of your truck, is with a nice cold air intake. So, today we're going to be installing this Roush cold air intake on our 2018 F150. This Roush cold air intake is designed to be an easy direct fit replacement for the factory intake on your EcoBoost F150 and Raptor. It features a high flow polyethylene intake tube with a massive pre-oiled air filter and it's protected by a two piece housing with an inspection window. It reduces intake restrictions by 25% for improved performance and efficiency and the best part is, it won't void your warranty.

Tools you'll need for this installation, seven millimeter socket, eight millimeter socket, 5/16th socket, 10 millimeter socket, T-30 torques bit and extension, quarter inch ratchet, 13 millimeter socket, 3/8th ratchet, a center punch, 17/64th drill bit, a drill and safety glasses.

Okay, installing this intake is pretty simple. The first thing we have to do is obviously remove the factory one. We're going to disconnect these two clips on the air box. We'll loosen up these two hose clamps. Use a seven millimeter socket to get these hose clamps off. This one’s a bit trickier to get to just because it's hidden on the back side. Lift up on the intake to remove it, twist this sensor to remove it and then you can unplug it and this will transferred over to your new Roush intake.

Remove this 13 millimeter bolts that secures the bottom portion of the air box. You can use a pen or removal tool, or a flat head screwdriver to remove this from the air box. Remove the two clips on the front of the air scoop and now the whole assembly can come out.

Okay, we're over on the table now and you want to go to Roush’s website and print out the template for this intake. We're going to cut this out and use this to drill two holes on the air box. Place the template over the air box and use a punch to mark the two holes. Now drill the holes with a 17/64th's drill bit.

Now we're going to mount the bracket that comes with the kit, with the provided bolts. Tighten the bolts with an eight millimeter socket. We're going to separate the factor air scoop from the air box by removing this screw. Then, we're going to transfer the air scoop over to the Roush air box. Secure the scoop to the Roush housing with the factory screw. Remove the sleeve and bushing from the factory air box and install this back on to the truck.

Reinstall the bolt and the bushing into the factory location on the truck. Our Roush intake will attach to it by just sliding over it. You don't need to crank down on it too hard, just make it snug. Install the Roush air box into the truck, reinstall the two clips up front. Reattach this clip to the bracket that you bolted to the air box. Install your filter adapter onto the air filter. Install your filter into the air box and attach it with the provided hardware.

Assemble all the couplers and clamps on to the Y pipe, then install it. Get it all situated and then tighten down all the clamps. Take the extension harness that comes with the kit and plug it into the intake sensor connector. This will allow the sensor to go right here. Install the sensor, twist it to lock it and plug it in.

The final step is, if you want to, you can install the inspection window on top of the air box, or you can leave this off if you want. And it's gets secured with the provided screws. And our installation is finished.

Okay, we got our Roush cold air intake installed on our 2018 F150. It looks a lot better under the hood and it's going to help our truck to breathe a lot better than the factory intake too. To get even more performance out of it, you could remove this inspection window if you want. Install was pretty easy. It shouldn't take you more than an hour and before you know it, you'll be heading off road.
