Bigger Intake for 11 plus V6

Does anybody know if there is any company making a larger intake for the 11 plus v6 models. The 5.0 has the 302 Boss intake option but what about our v6 models? It would be nice to have a larger intake and then combo it with the larger throttle body.

theirs is just a ported/polished one. unless you mean they are actually developing a larger intake manifold?

Why offer an aftermarket intake when the stock one can be ported beyond what the engine is capable of without FI? BBK already makes a larger throttle body.

I suppose it would be nice to have the option of swapping out one for the other but from a business/performance standpoint, I don't think it makes much sense.

I don't feel the larger throttle body is going to do anything of HP and torque gains without having a larger intake to suck the air in. My opinion in order to really take advantage of the larger throttle body you need a larger intake to handle all that extra cold air being sucked into the engine.

Other than cosmetics (some do not like the "overlap" to the passenger side), the Ford engineers did a great job of making the air intake flow well beyond the requirements of the engine. This and the stock air intake are two areas that give the aftermarket fits, because they really cannot be improved upon, unless looks are what your after.

Get a tuner. This wakes up the 3.7 V6 more than any other mod.

For about $900 you can drop your 1/4 mile time by about 3/4 of a second. CAI, tuner and 3.73 gears.

The tuner and rear gear are credited for this increase. I'm betting the tuner and gear swap without the CAI will have the same results.

Just won't sound as good.

The stock air box isn't bad at all. It does everything an aftermarket CAI would do. It draws cool air from outside of the engine compartment, it's a short path, and not many bends or angles.

In my opinion we have CAI just with a resonator (which has a negligible effect on airflow).

I agree the stock air box isn't bad. A CAI with no tune is a waste when it comes to performance HP and torque gains . With that said, a CAI combined with a tune is a different story. There are proven HP and toque number results with a tune and CAI compared to a tune with the stock air box.
I think mods are like baking a cake. One more mod is an ingredient to the final product. A CAI alone with no tune is a waste when it comes to HP and toque numbers. Take a tune, cai, headers and off road or catted x pipe, aftermarket exhaust, one piece aluminum driveshaft and now your talking a different game.

Now all we need is a bigger intake manifold pared with the larger throttle body and its HP and torque gains there. More air shoved in the engine , the more power it makes.
