    I just got done emailing SCT they said they have support for the Raptor and can tune the off-road mode.

    well...thats the thing, i dont want anything changed on my offroad mode, its damn near perfect in offroad situations...downshifts while going downhill, keeps the revs high when punched..its probably one of the best features on this truck. took my mother (yes my close to 60 year old mother LOL) offroading today, she nearly had a heart attack...but we did some slow crawls through some tight sections...truck was EPIC...if it wasnt, i will be the first to say otherwise trust me LOL but the last thing any of us would want to do...is mess with offroad mode.

    FWIW I have considerable experience testing these things and I can tell ya that both location and routing can play huge parts in the effectiveness of a "CAI" or not. Things like where the air is drawn from, tube size, funnel effect, bend radiuses, tube materials, pulse harmonics... They all can play significant roles in the volume or air delivered, the turbulence in how it's delivered and its temps.

    Having said all that I cannot speak at all regard this partular kit, nor any other for the F150; I haven't specifically tested anything for this platform. But it is worth noting as a general rule that the science of performance enhancing air delivery can be far more complex than slapping on a hi flow filter and big tube.

    .but all we have in our stock tubing are air silencers...as long as you keep the diameter of the tube consistent, shouldnt have any ill effect, which is why i kept the stock housing, its 3" in diameter coming in, kept it consistent all throughout. I am not too sure whats the diameter on this setup? maybe more? which then explains everything...

    Took my truck to Utah and back...also drove it down to denver and back..colorado springs and back..all of which have different elevations and so on...i also drove up to pikes peak...which is 14,000 feet above sea level..still no ill effects to my truck.

    I agree, there are so many variables, which is why i dont stray too far from stock settings...and kept the stock housing. runs fantastic for me, love it actually, totally dig having 17 to 18 mpg!

    Somewhere right now, millions of drivers who think racing stickers add horsepower are doubling over in pain.
