The AIRAID Cold Air Dam (CAD) Air Intake is engineered to give your engine larger amounts of cooler air to produce more horsepower and torque. The intake system retains the original location of the air filter but delivers a big boost with the addition of a huge open-element air inlet protected by Cold Air Dam panels that help to provide a steady, free-flowing supply of cooler outside air into your engine. The panels mount in the factory air box location and utilize any factory cold air inlet ducts that are present, while adding additional cold air passages to the filter. The panels also keep the filter isolated from the hot engine compartment air by sealing to the underside of the hood via blade-style weather stripping. This CAD system utilizes a replacement low-restriction intake tube. The 360-degree conical AIRAID premium air filter is washable and reusable, less restrictive than traditional paper, and assures superior filtration. The AIRAID Cold Air Dam Air Intake is easy to install with common hand tools. Some AIRAID air intakes are not legal for sale or use in California and other states adopting California emission standards, while others are 50 state legal.

    NA King

    I have used all of the big name tuners before I came across Ortiz and ran the fastest times I ever have, with Ortiz. . I ran my fastest time in much worse DA as well, compared to the other 2 big names. Don't waste your money like I did and go directly to the source of the fastest NA cars around!

    I recommend this product.

    Installed on 2018 Taurus SHO

    Pump works great. To anyone who might want to save some cash and want a plug-in play install then order this fuel pump from 1A Auto
    2018 Ford Explorer V6 3.5L Turbo Passenger Side Fuel Pump Module Assembly TRQ FPA72032. Its a simple replacement. Pumps are same size, no boring/sanding ridge to make pump fit. No splicing of wires either, connector from 1A Auto is plug and play. Just reuse spacer on pump and use one of the new o-rings and your done. Took me 30 minutes. I swapped out float with OEM, explorer and SHO floats are different. Only pain is retainer on rod on housing, its plastic and you will need needle nose plyers to get it off.

    I recommend this product.

    LOVE THE E85 KIT!

    I bought the E85 conversion kit for my 3.7 from Ortiz Performance (OP) for a couple reasons. First, they specialize in the Cyclone whereas a lot of tuners don't want to bother tuning it (...cause what's the point?). Second, I talked via email at great length with one of their tuners, Lee Ament, and he was happy to take all the time I needed answering questions with detailed answers. Because of the amount of service I received before I purchased, I was convinced that I would be in good hands. I also liked that their favored injector (in the kit) is a genuine Ford part (OEM for the GT500).

    I could tell right away that the OP gas tune was superior to the canned, Bama tunes I was using previously. I could immediately feel that shifts were taking 1/3 less time to complete and I could feel a lot of throttle boost across all rpm and especially in 1st gear (low rpm). I remember asking Bama to add more throttle boost to my tune and they simply don't make changes like that.

    The E85 tune was great. Instant 10%-15% power boost and response across all rpm and really fills in the gap at lower rpm. Feels like I'm using a throttle booster, but I'm not.

    There's only so much you can do to a Cyclone without forced-induction and E85 is a welcome, significant improvement if you already have everything else.

    Installation is straight-forward, you can find a number of videos on YouTube that show exactly how to do this.

    The one important thing to note: These injectors are taller than the stock injectors and
    will not fit deep enough into the fuel rail UNLESS you do not use the stock fuel-injector clips!...which is completely OK! OP and all the above-mentioned videos will also state this. You will probably need a spacer (like a washer) on the 4 fuel rail bolts to fill a small gap. (If you don't pull the injector clips, the fuel rail will make contact with the manifold.) It will also run like crap until you put your first OP tune on it.

    I recommend this product.
