All new Carbon Fiber BIG AIR Intake for the 2007-09 GT500.
NEW TUBE DESIGN
When we developed our 2011 Mustang GT 5.0 intake we did something completely different for us and incorporated the MAF housing into the tube. This made for a much smoother interior without any transitions, steps or couplers to upset the air flow. Another benefit is the over all look is just plain awesome!
Since the 2011 GT kit was such a success, we decided to look back and redesign our GT500 kit. The result is this kit with s a full 127mm ID at the MAF area. It also has a new larger heat shield with two mounting points and a weather strip that seals to the hood. With a huge 5” opening on the tube we needed a huge filter so we got with S&B and gave them some measurements. We love the tapered flange design and Powerstack filtered ends of their filters and ended up with a monster 5x9” filter, that’s a full 8.25” across at the base and 5.5” at the top. Finish it off with a silicone coupler and stainless clamps. NO METAL TUBING HERE!!
MOLDED IN MAF
The best part of this new JLT Big Air is we kicked the cool factor up a notch and molded a 127mm MAF housing right in the tube. This not only look great, but the smooth inside makes air flow nice and smooth. Early testing shows this can be used with the stock MAF sensor all the way up to 750 RWHP and well beyond with a MAFia, SCT BA5000 or HPX sensor.
The heat shield ABS plastic to block engine heat at idle and low speed.
It uses a large area to make sure the filter has tons of cool air.
60-90 RWHP is typical with this kit and our custom tune. This puts most GT500’s at 495-515 HP at the rear tires. (500 HP is rated at the flywheel from the factory)
A JLT specific tune is required with this kit.

OIL OR DRY
We use only the best air filters made by S&B to our specifications.
For years we only used oiled filters, but dry filter technology has been proven and is now a popular option.
Should I choose a Dry Disposable or Cotton Oiled Filter?
Since you are not sacrificing performance with either choice, the decision comes down to would you rather throw away the filter or clean it.
Comparable Airflow to oiled Cotton Filters with the same Great Protection.
Last for up to 30,000 miles of highway driving. Extend the life of the filter using compressed air.
Oiled filters can last forever as long as you properly clean and re-oil it. See maintenance information below.
To properly clean your filter, we recommend the S&B Precision II Cleaning & Oiling Kit.
*TIP* by purchasing a 2nd air filter you can simply swap filters when it's time to clean it and not be rushed. Clean the first filter and it's ready when it's time to change again.
Custom tuning is required
