Air Force One Intake

Has anyone ever used this intake. I was looking for an intake for my bro's F-150 and came upon this.

Seems to add a **** load of HP. Its also at a great price.

Don't believe everything you read on the internet. You probably won't get 1-2 HP out of that, forget 12-14!

If you go out for a jog, do you get more energy by holding your mouth wide open?

hahahahah LOL good one.

but he's right you will not gain HP just from a intake alone. now get an intake, chip, headers, TB spacer, hi flow cats then you will gain some HP but not from the intake along. sorry to burst your bubble. it might sound better but get your F1 on a dyno b4 and after the intake and lets see the results

they used the term "approximately" when posting the dyno numbers.

Thats the intake the SCT tuner really pushes at F-150online. Go over there for plenty of real life dyno information on it.

I bought one for my '99 5.4 F150 almost a month ago and absolutely love! Like it was said early, check F150online.

I'm amazed that these aftermarket folks actually try to make you believe that vehicle manufacturers actually design the intakes and filters to be restrictive!!
Total HOGWASH!!! With the CAFE standards today, vehicle manufacturers design their engines (including intakes, and filters) to be as efficient as possible! And this includes ALL of the "Big 3"!!
