I finished the install last night. I decided to cut the clamp on the sound tube near the strut tower and plugged the opening.
This way, it would be easier to return to stock if needed.
I found it easiest to attach the intake tube to the throttlebody with the intake box resting on the apron...
What's the secret to removing the 10mm nut holding the sound tube to the firewall?
I don't want to just rip the tube from the firewall, and I've spent many hours today trying to remove the nut.
My install of this kit is on hold because of this issue.
I called Ford Performance's help line this afternoon and was told that Ford would have to prove that "the parts of the kit or calibration explicitly caused the issue resulting in a warranty claim".
Once you're passed 36,000 miles or three years from the original in service date of the vehicle...
My factory powertrain warranty is valid until 8/16/23, and the extended warranty until 8/16/25.

I really want to pull the trigger on this kit, but here's my issue.
I can't get a straight answer from anyone regarding the impact of this kit on my powertrain warranty.
I understand that if an ASE or dealer tech installs this kit, the components in the kit will be covered for 3 years/36,000...

I left the stock bushings in the front mount of the shifter, because I didn't want the NVH that the metal bushings in the kit would transmit.
I also reused the stock rear bracket.
There's some minor NVH that wasn't present with the...
I'm happy with the K&N intake that I installed on my 2018 GT.
I noticed a bit more torque down low, and the IAT numbers seem to be similar to what owners of the Ford Performance CAI report.
It fit much better than the Injen that I tried.
I love Seal N Shine too, and I never thought I'd say that about a Turtle Wax product. In the past, I thought of Turtle Wax products as low budget.
If I'm feeling ambitious, Jescar Power Lock Plus followed by Collinite 845 is my preferred combination.
