Roush Releases Cold Air Intake Kits For 2018 Ford F-150

Roush Performance has released cold air intake kits for 2018 Ford F-150 pickups equipped with either the 5.0L Coyote V8, 2.7L EcoBoost or 3.5L EcoBoost V6, including the F-150 Raptor. Roush claims as much as 25% less intake restriction than stock in forced-induction applications, from “the most highly-engineered [intake] of its kind.

According to Roush, installation ought to take less than an hour, and no ECU recalibration is required to start seeing gains. The filter media uses dry filter technology, meaning it doesn’t need to be oiled like some other wire mesh filters, and it’s washable and reusable if it gets clogged with debris.

In addition to unlocking latent fuel efficiency and power, Roush’s cold air intake for the 2018 Ford F-150 provides a slightly enhanced sporty intake noise.

This cold air intake is far from the only performance enhancement offered by Roush Performance for your 2018 Ford F-150, of course. The renowned aftermarket parts and tuning company also offers a full Roush F-150 package, which features a Fox 2.0 suspension system, 20-inch wheels wrapped in Mickey Thompsan Baja ATZP3 rubber, a side-exit exhaust, custom body components and vinyl graphics, and more. Pricing for that package starts at $11,500.

Conversely, if you’re not looking to spend quite that much on your 2018 Ford F-150, Roush’s new cold air intake is priced at $419.99. Check the company’s website for more.

    CAI theory is untrue, there are many tests online showing that in reality most CAI are actually Warm Air Intakes and the stock airbox is superior. Its simply marketing, yes the sound changes but performance is not improved. Been there done that, waste of money. Buy a good ECU tune from any provider and you will be much happier.
