Has anyone installed a cold air intake on their 3.5 L ? If so, which one.?
Yes, I took out that reducer piece that connects the air box to the inside fender. It will add more air to grab (well on my 2012 it does). I just put some alum duck tape, to fill the gap to the fender. That along with my K&N filter, I now have my own CAI.I'll get this filter too, good price and great reviews. Is there any other "mods" to the stock intake to improve air intake i.e. air silencer?
Your truck already has one installed from the factory. Put in a better air filter, but it's been proven that the aftermarket CAIs don't improve performance. I put a dry AEM filter in mine.
This is also how I feel a cat back exhaust is.All F150's stock intakes are really a CAI and the consensus is that an aftermarket one is a waste of money. If you want the cool factor and to gain a little louder noise, then go ahead and waste several hundred on an aftermarket CAI. I decided to just go with a dry AEM drop in and save a few bucks but get a small gain.
I found this very helpful thank you. After doing some research I had never heard of AEM as I have always used K&N. After reading the reviews and ordering one they really are a great filter for the money.Your truck already has one installed from the factory.
