    Hey y’all

    Has anybody tried the Whipple product yet? I’m pretty certain that I’ve read all avail fr2 threads on air intake. I understand that Whipple requires recalibration of pcms with the entire stage 1 kit, however a bit of ambiguity remains on whether or not this is required with merely the air intake replacement. Thoughts? Also, anyone using turbo adapters? Thanks

    I’ve. Even looking at the Whipple product myself and haven’t been able to find anything on it yet. My biggest concern is how this will effect my warranty. If just getting the intake won’t effect then that’s all might do. I would like to get the entire system and maybe do something to my exhaust system as well.

    Looking at the Whipple Cold Air Intake option, it looks like the same basic upgrade everyone else is offering.

    In the end, as already noted here:
    None of the systems offer a replacement to the stock snorkel which is what's bringing the majority of "cold" air in.
    There's three types of set ups i'm seeing, open, closed or seals against the hood type of air box.
    The air silencers (restricters) are inline within the two feed tubes and shouldn't be removed unless you want to see codes (engine light) pop up (based on multiple factors of what the the sensors are monitoring). So you can't exceed those trigger points and a lot of that is based on the environment where you are located.

    Warrenty, it's not an issue from Ford's stand point. Just as long as your not overriding the sensors and exceeding pressures.

    Now, all that said. Pick one either based on the look you want or the claimed performance enhancement. 10-15 is about the average gain i've seen claimed.

    I happened to go with the Roush but make no claim to one being better then another.

    Until they make a hood replacement with a scope to draw in cold air directly and a tune to deal with added pressures, the options are limited and so are the benefits.

    Any difference btw Whipple and Afe ? I really want the Afe stage 2 Magnum as ford performance is using AFE and seems more comfy with their Brand of Cai. Any thoughts or comparisons ? Thanks

    Just jumped on their website. Looks like there's two options of either on open air box or an enclosed one. Yes, i see there's many options for the new raptor and i'm not 100% sure on which one your considering.

    The one i did look at off the cuff was an enclosed box set up, offered 24hp gain if i read their map correctly. That's about on par from what i saw from multiple vendors. Similar design, open up the tubes a bit and change to a better breathing filter.

    That said, multiple vendors all offering the same two designs getting the same results. Without having the selection in front of me or you for that matter, it's hard to speak across the line on quality. Quality of the material and finished product. So without that, all you can do is pick a system in which you like the look of the design or have an emotional pull to for whatever reason.

    I'll snap a pic of my setup this weekend and get it posted here.

    I had an airaid on an older truck of mine and it was pure garbage. No air intake will give you 33 hp
