2015-2016 Ford F-150 with the Coyote 5.0L V8 Howls with an AIRAID MXP Intake

2016 FORD F150 Air Intake

The AIRAID 401-293 MXP performance intake is designed to increase both horsepower and torque in the Ford Coyote 5.0L V8.

When it was first launched in the late 1960's, the Ford 5.0L V8 was just another V8 engine to appease a power-hungry public. Decades later, the Ford 302 powered everything from police cars and ambulances to Mustangs and F-150s. It was a mechanical legend that deserved an equally formidable replacement. Fittingly, the Ford 5.0L second generation came in 2011 when they launched the Coyote 5.0L V8, which was nearly identical in size to the outgoing 4.6L V8. The new motor featured lots of innovations like 4-valves per cylinder, and a new variable camshaft timing system that could improve fuel economy by instantly adjusting output based on RPMs. The 2015-2016 Ford F-150 got a torque-centric version of this motor that allowed it to perform/haul/tow better than its competitors, without burning more fuel in the process. A lot of technology has been used to make the Ford Coyote 5.0L V8 the perfect 8-cylinder motor for the 21st century. And now you can harness some high performance technology of your own, with the AIRAID 401-293 MXP performance intake.

AIRAID 2016 FORD F150 Cold Air Intake Dyno Chart

Dyno results for a 2015 Ford F-150 running the AIRAID 401-293 MXP intake system showed an estimated increase of 19-hp and 26 lb-ft.

Unlike most cold air intake systems, the AIRAID 401-293 MXP performance intake uses a special closed filter chamber, with a large diameter snorkel that funnels air directly into the high-flow SynthaMax air filter. The advantage is the performance air filter is completely sealed off and unable to ingest any hot air from the engine bay. Since cold air contains more oxygen molecules than warm air, the Coyote 5.0L is able to extract more power, by creating a hotter detonation with the cold air. The sealed AIRAID MXP intake system collects a much larger volume of cold air from outside the engine bay, then delivers it to the engine through a low-restriction intake tube. Plus, both the snorkel and roto-molded AIRAID MXP air box are located in place of the stock intake system, so no under-hood modifications are required. Installation takes about 90 minutes and this AIRAID cold air intake system is street legal in all 50 states.

Another benefit of the AIRAID 401-293 MXP performance intake is increased airflow. By eliminating the tight bends and narrow passages of the OE F-150 5.0L intake, your F-150 5.0L is able to get more cold air, faster. This allows it to make horsepower and torque at lower RPMs, which in turn, gives you faster throttle response. Of course, that's all speculation without proof. Which is why AIRAID tested the 401-293 MXP intake system on a stock 2015 Ford F-150 5.0L, and found that it made an estimated increase of 19-hp and 26 lb-ft. But naturally, your individual results may vary, based on the mileage, modifications, and condition of your specific Ford F-150.

Thanks to the verified performance and made in America build quality, the AIRAID 401-293 MXP performance intake is backed by the AIRAID No-Hassle Lifetime Warranty. In addition, you'll be able to save money on replacement air filters because the supplied AIRAID SynthaMax synthetic air filter can go up to 30,000-50,000 miles before it needs to be cleaned. And don't forget, AIRAID also makes an entire line of Ford F-150 performance parts, which you can view by using the AIRAID search by vehicle tool, or you can use the dealer locator tool to find your local AIRAID retailer.
