Roush Cold Air Intake for the Ecoboost Raptor

Roush released a cold-air intake for the Ford Ecoboost Raptor and it's available for $409.99 and also comes with a 90-day limited parts warranty

It's an oil-free mesh air filter, along with an injection molded air box, air tube, 105mm MAF tube and hardware.

The cold air intake system is 25% less restrictive than the oem system. No dyno charts yet though or even how much hp/tq you should gain.

Not bad gains at all but I would recommend doing this with a tune, that way you get some really noticeable gains. Someone spending $450 with tax for this likely has the money sitting around for a tune. Might as well treat yourself

The gains weren't really mentioned at all so I wouldn't even begin to speculate power increase on these, but I do agree, the only way to really benefit fully from any sort of aftermarket add on is to get a tune for it. They always say, after installing any new part, get a tune after to make it usable.

Just thought about this but with air flow being less restrictive could that mean we get a slight bump in fuel economy? In some cases I heard people get a 1-2 MPG bump, but that was after a couple tanks of driving.

I have heard the same thing that people get some better mpg after installing mods like these. But I think 1-2mpg is extremely negligible and especially with this increasing induction noise, I'd probably lose a lot more mpg considering I'd be dropping the pedal a lot more often

Better than nothing, we basically getting slightly rewarded for better performance and that's always a plus, not like our spouses will
Can't wait for hybrid systems to become available since improvements in range from tunes might make an actual difference their.

Hybrid systems are going to be a thing of question for me. I have never seen anyone really tune a hybrid for real performance. Have you seen any hybrid builds?

There are supercars like the Ferrari LaFerrari, Porsche 918 and Acura NSX that are hybrids. If you look into what those models are all about it should give you a good idea of the potential. Just never seen tunes and builds happen.

The Raptor is never going to reach the potential of those... ever... lol. I think I may actually contact my local tuner and see if he can provide any sort of insight on how to go about this.
