Food for thought and my opinion..........

DO NOT waste your money on the Boss intake install kit. For $179.99 you are pretty much getting a box of new parts that replace the same parts that are already on the car. Only difference is the relocation of the purge valve which makes you have to splice into the wiring harness to lenghten it.

A trip to the local Auto Zone for 2' of vaccum line and some hose clamps for $5.99.....thats right $5.99 (LRS sells this kit for $10.99) which is a savings of $174.00 will do the trick and still look factory. The factory purge valve is hidden under the intake and wont be noticed by anyone except those who have already done the install.

I will be returning my kit on monday and by the looks of it (just the condition of the box and it was a little dirty) someone before me had the same frame of mind after opening it.

I get what you're saying, but I like the fact that it looks stock-ish, I didn't mind splicing into the wire, it was super easy

Yeah, 2 years ago LMR did a build thread here on ME installing the boss manifold on a 2011. Reading that thread got me hooked on the idea to do it. Out of all the things I've done to my car that is my favorite mod.

about how long does it take to do the install of the boss intake. ive got plenty of mechanical knowledge.. no problem doing it, just wondering how long it will take the average person to install it.. and another question while im here.. ive got the tune to run after I install the intake but ive also got to install my full exhaust. since the tune i got from bama, has the intake and exhaust with the tune. so my question is. can i install the intake and still drive my car if i return the tune to stock/ or do i have to have the tune on it to run the boss intake? just wondering, thanks

Whistle

My steeda cai whistles a little bit too. Correct someone if I'm wrong but that is very common with these cai's.

Install takes about two hours if you really take your time. If you're familiar with this kind of work, much less.

No, you can't drive the car without a tune after putting the boss manifold on.

Just installed the intake without a hitch. It took about 2 hours to install. The only problem I hade was making my steeda cai bolt up to the throttle body. But with a little patience you can get it. I also installed a x pipe in place of the factory stuff. But with all my mods on car. I can honestly say the boss 302 intake is no joke. I do not fell like I lost any low end power at all. I think is more strong in the bottom than it was. Def. worth the money. After 4 thousand rpm's. that car fells like a jet plane taking off. Monster gains in the high end power range. Just need to get my 3.73 gears installed to really get my money's worth from the intake. But that will be next week.

Well I made mine work. It is really hard too get to fit right. I just loosened all the hose clamps on the cai hoses and worked them in real carefully. They will go without having to cut anything. But it takes some time. And patience

It *MAY* void portions of your factory warranty. Read up on the Magnusson-Moss Warranty Act (I'm assuming you're in the US). The manufacturer must be able to prove in a court of law that your modifications caused the failure. Then they may deny you warranty coverage *FOR THAT PART* but the rest of your warranty is still intact.

For example, lets say that an aftermarket tune caused your engine to pop, but later your stereo stops working or a covered suspension part has an issue. Ford is still obligated to perform the warranty work on the parts still covered.

I can pretty much guarantee you he isn't driving it if he didn't. I've seen how these things run with a Boss IM and stock tune ... it isn't pretty.

I wouldn't be to worried about it ... tons of people are running a similar setup and beating the crap out of their cars every day.

So I installed the boss intake a few months ago and got a tune from bama. My car has been shifting at 7200 rpm since the install. But I've been reading alot about not getting the true performance out of a boss intake unless you shift around 7600-7800 rpm. So I called bama today requesting a new tune with higher shift points. And the service guy, who was great to deal with buy the way. He was very helpful. Hats off to those folks. But he said since I drive a 2011 gt 5.0 "AUTOMATIC". That auto cars do not need to shift that high. It's bad on transmission. He is sending me a new tune with shift points up in the 7500 rpm range. But has any one heard of this.? Or have any input for auto's with the boss intake installed? Thanks.

Plenty of auto/boss intake combos shifting much higher than 7200. You are leaving a lot on the table and you won't hurt the transmission.

You aren't making much power past 7200 anyways. Here's my dyno sheet with a Bama tune and Boss Manifold.

No, the high shift points are for drag racing. Street driving you can shift where ever you want/need/feel necessary

Well I up'ed the shift point to 7650rpm. After doing a few hits at the track, I now have a tranny leak coming from the bell housing. I think that at that high rpm the tranny might not be able to Handel it. Dropped it back down to 7500. And runs better. But now I've got to take it to the dealer to find out what broke. Hope it's not a big issue and that they cover under warranty. I don't think they will. I've got tons of mods. But we will see.
