Airaid Cold Air Intake Install - 2013 Ford RaptorPosted in How To: Engine on January 15, 2014 0) (
The Ford Raptor comes equipped with a healthy 6.2L V-8 engine, but there's always room for performance improvement where the factory left off. We found a quick and easy way to add a few more ponies. Jacob Lopez at Bullet Proof Diesel installed an Airaid cold air intake system on a 2013 Raptor in less than half an hour.
Their Raptor-specific intake kit is a complete solution that replaces the stock filter setup, but keeps the filter in the factory location. The addition of cold air dam panels help ensure cooler outside air is directed to the filter element, instead of the hotter underhood air, to increase engine power.
Two filter types are offered in their kits: an oiled SynthaFlow filter and their SynthaMax dry filter. Airaid dyno results show an increase of 12 horsepower and 14 pound-foot of torque using their cold air setup over the factory filter unit on the Raptor engine.
