Sorry to change the topic a bit but does anyone know if the 05-09JLT cold air would fit on a 2010? I wouldn't see why not because it's the same 4.6 v8 right, Back to the intake question JLT all the way imo

Might not fit under the hood right since its a slightly different shape/designed car

I can't exactly speak for the 4.6 JLT's but I know the 5.0 JLT's are horrible and have bad airflow characteristics. I would check on the 4.6 JLT's just to be certain

Not worth typing, just creates confusion and bad product opinion when you don't even know what it's like for the 05-09

The JLT3 is THE BEST intake for the money, nothing can compare, steeda I heard gives u 2 more hp but nobody can prove that and the price difference doesn't justify it

If your saving 50 bucks then get the JLT.

Gains are similar on most of the intakes. Maybe 3 or 4 hp difference. I just like the fit and finish of the Airaid.

There is no HP difference, everyone says that but nobody has yet to post proof

I'm too easy going to get offended, I know you're one of the go to guys for 05-09's too.

Just don't talk bad about the military or bash people for their tastes and I'm golden

Ill Never ever bash the military, as long as your talking about the United States military haha, also I try not to bash on people's taste to much, I do once in awhile but not alot haha

Side note, why is JLT no good for the 5.0, I know Brenspeed uses them in there racing cars, I don't think there a big enough company to get kick backs from JLT but who knows

The airflow in the intake just isn't very smooth or consistent and causes inconsistency in power throughout the RPM range making it hard to pin down shift points

Joel,

Just like everyone has mentioned. These are both fantastic intakes that we have on multiple projects cars (14 different cars). It really just comes down to preference. Also, our sale is a great money saver, personally I would jump on the JLT just for the savings. Both intakes produce similar results. The only other reason I wouldn't choose a JLT is because I prefer the looks of an Airaid intake. Again, this is just preference!

Good luck deciding. Let me know if there's anything else I can do for you!

Shane

The reason i was interested so much was it was like 50 off now its not

That isn't so much that JLT is so awesome, more so that on 3Vs the intake/tune combo nets so much gains that it is a no brainer to buy the JLT for cheap when the gains are as good or better than 'better' intakes.

Discount from the forumn helped out. I did notice a difference after it was on with the tune. Mostly the throttle response and and shifting but it definitly feels quicker

Re: cold air intake

For you Guys with 2010 cars, was it a big difference in the models 2010 and 2005-2009 model CAIs because of different shape front Eng. compartment?

I put a steeda one on my 2010 gt. I droid it to be quite a bit quicker on the launch and it had more power throughout the band width. Made the car feel a lot better. Also sounds awesome

---------- Post added at 01:21 PM ---------- Previous post was at 01:20 PM ----------

Although I've read that the 05-09 guess get a bigger gain because the 2010 has a factory cai

Re: cold air intake

When u guys say "sounds awesome" what does that mean? I don't have a CAI yet, but don't know if u would hear anything over the sound of the pipes??

The CAIs will make a little difference in the sound, even with a non-stock exhaust, you will notice a difference in sound, when you change your stock Intake. Don't expect a loud sounding sound like mufflers, but there is a difference.

Let me add a little more info with that, and excuse me for mumbling soo long with this. But there is more with it when you get into it, for instance, if your CAI will need to be tuned when added or if it is a CAI that doesn't need a Tune, many opinions vary on this subject, some say a CAI that doesn't need tune is worthless, some say it is. If you get one that needs Tune, then you have to buy a Tuner ($300 - $500), I personally think it's well worth the money. Then there's the subject of Warrenties, I'm not gonna get into that conversation. All in All, I think the CAI is a good idea.

You can tell a difference once its on you hear the engine more. You hear it sucking more air. And I feel like my exhaust sounds better

Cai with tune is a good idea, when it comes to warranties it take 20 mins to throw on your stock Cai and retune back to stock

Depending on the cai sometimes you can hear them sucking air when you floor it. Also gives a little more sound to the exhaust in my opinion.

Re: cold air intake

The exhaust sound may be partially or mostly the aggressive tune. The swoosh from the cone is cool if anything.
