JLT PERFORMANCE, Home of the JLT TRUE COLD AIR KIT

Their Rai kit doesn't go into the fender. That's what I have on my car. See my album for pics.

Re: sourcing parts for engine build

I saw that and only reason I shyed away from it is because it doesnt have that little "barricade" or whatever around the filter like the trick flow and k&n. Would that barrier help much?

Re: sourcing parts for engine build

Damn this might get a little involved. The cobra throttle body doens't sit at the same angle as the gt's.

Re: sourcing parts for engine build

What barrier are you talking about? A metal shield around an air filter?

A. That "barricade" is useless and only restricts airflow by blocking off 2 of the 4 sides of the intake from free access to air.

B. Did you go to the website? JLT Heat Shield (1996-04 Cobra/GT) [P-HSJLT101] - $25.00 : JLT PERFORMANCE, Home of the JLT TRUE COLD AIR KIT

C. I lose zero power on the dyno when I took the shield off.

It just lays there. There's no need to attach it to the fender well. All that does is make it rigid so that when your motor torques over it can slowly loosen the connections.

Re: sourcing parts for engine build

Have you ever had a problem with it like if you hit a bump and the filter bounces and it might damage something?

Re: sourcing parts for engine build

My filter has about 1/8th of an inch to move upwards. Keep in mind, while it may appear to just "lay there", it is actually up under where your headlight attaches to the car. For example, there is about 1.5-2" of filter you can't see in my engine bay. It won't just flop around loosely. Also, even if it were fully loose and not blocked by the headlight, it wouldn't move far at all. It's not a wet noodle at all. With all the connections and what not, it is relatively rigid.

Re: sourcing parts for engine build

i would keep it simple, keep the air filter in the engine bay with a surround as most have, when you start putting it in the fender the fitment has to be much closer.

That's what he is looking to do actually. lol

However, the surround is useless and just restricts airflow to the filter.

Re: sourcing parts for engine build

Ya the main reason I want it in the engine bay is wiggle room for fitment. The 5.4 sits higher and the trick flow plenum may be closer or farther or whatever.
