that’s a negative. Both done at same time along with other mods then car was tuned. I have no data on what the duct does as a stand alone addition. Sorry

Fellow 5.0 brothers,

It's been difficult having to choose either a Drop in air filter on my (2019 GT PP1 )or go with a Closed air intake (For Performance) or a Open intake (style&performance)

I've heard aftermarket some aftermarket intakes really don't do justice in providing a cooler temp to the engine.....

I've also heard the stock intake that the S550's have keep it cooler than most aftermarket intakes...

Which is why I'm here wanting to have many of you debunk myths I hear.

Which intake did you go with and why?

What do you recommend?

My purpose of choosing one is for Full performance...Closed intake? Open? or stock with a drop in filter?
I’ve ran my JLT open filter with the stock manifold and cats on 93 for almost 2 years now, I recently switched to a 18 mani and stock 18+ airbox and IATs are about 10-15° cooler on average than my JLT ever was. Obviously not much to compare side my side since it’s a different manifold, but anyone with half a brain knows colder air = more go fast

Went with an Injen, seems a bit louder, also seems a bit more powerful, however without a dyno impossible to tell. The inside of the Injen CAI is smooth, don't know if that helps at all. IAT's are higher with the engine too. In all honesty, think I would have been happier putting that towards Ford Performance's Kit, more low end torque and Horsepower, plus more rev matching with a MT. The stock intake is very good from many sources. Think Ford Engineers did an excellent job overall, however tuning and CAI and many other mods are designed to help you get what you want. Come to the conclusion that CAI are more about "this car is mine" and it is "part of my life" than a legitimate piece that gives you an edge at the dragstrip or on the street. So many variables, temperature, air pressure, road, incline, traction, shifting, wind direction etc. an extra 10 or 20 HP may not do as much as one would think. I would probably get more satisfaction taking some performance driving courses.

I went with the Roush. The closed box design seemed like a no-brainer for me for keeping hot air out. I also lined the inside and outside of the box with heat shield tape. But the best thing I did was change my grill to one with more of an open design to let more cool air into the air box. My IAT's are consistently only 3-6 degrees above ambiant as long as the car is not just idiling.
