Stock intake is better than a lot of the aftermarket intakes. A lot of the aftermarket intakes don’t even flow test their products and some of them create a ton of turbulence in the air, reducing the smooth flow of the stock intake. There’s a reason I run a y-pipe style intake like the stock intake, and even though I have big aftermarket turbos, I have ran the stock intake with them many times and it does great!What is everyone’s perspective on getting cold air system on a 2022 3.5 eco, should I get one or is the stock intake maybe with a drop in filter good enough. Feed back please. Thanks
Nice! No, we are just saying that you can do those mods, exhaust, intake etc. but you won’t see any benefits from them aside for looks and sound unless you have a custom tune.I just picked up my 2022 XLT 3.5. Are we saying that ecu tuning is no longer possible? Thus the standard CAI, Intercooler and piping, turbo back exhaust with down pipes can’t be done?
Ah. So that’s why all the manufacturers of their individual CAI say xx HP gain after a tune. I’ll start my own thread with my additional questions. Thanks boostkingNice!

The only reason they say that is for click bait. Most companies run their products on a stock f150 and the truck gains horsepower on the stock tune, but it doesn’t have enough time to learn and reality is, if you drove the truck for a day, and then dyno it again, you wont see any gains, the gains would be gone. The truck adjusts and says, “oh, there’s more air? We’ll adjust to make the truck hit the torque commanded by the trucks computer” You might gain a bit of power from them with a tune, mostly exhaust, intake doesn’t really gain you anything at all, in fact the stock intake is literally better than most aftermarket intakes. Only reason I have the JLT intake is for sound. Otherwise I’d be running the stock intake, even on big turbos.Ah.
