ATTENTION NON-USDM Customers: if your car uses the mass air sensor you will need a tune that accounts for the added air volume. USDM cars have a mass air sensor in them however they only use it for intake air temperature measurements so there is no tune required for USDM cars.
Available powder coated in Satin Black, Ford Race Red the Xcel Ram Air Box Intake offers the most well thought out solution to getting air to your turbo yet. The XcelTM Intake comes with a full 3.00 mandrel bent tube. Welded onto the tube are a CNC-lathed port for the PCV system and a CNC laser cut and former bracket. In addition there is also a mass air sensor adaptor welded to the tube that allows you to bolt the stock mass air sensor in place. This adaptor is CNC milled from billet aluminum and contoured to fit the tube perfectly.
The intake tube then attaches to the air box through a 5-ply silicone elbow and a CNC-Milled aluminum bellmouth. This velocity stack bellmouth smoothly compresses the air from 4.00 to 3.00 providing a minimal amount of energy loss which translates to a higher air speed through the tube. The included 4.00 air filter is specially designed by cp-eTM to give the most free flowing air flow possible, with your choice between DflowTM or SynOilTM.
Part of what makes the stock intake system well-rounded is the great design of the stock box. It brings in cool air efficiently, and isolates the filter from the hot air in the engine bay. Where the stock box lacks is where the cp-eTM Xcel shines above all. The Xcel box is laser cut and CNC-bent 18 gauge stainless steel. Stainless steel is great for this application for not only its resistance to corrosion, but also its thermal properties allow the interior of the box to stay cool, even when the box itself heats up. The box utilizes the stock fresh air duct, and also sucks up cool fresh air from the bottom mounted snorkel tube. The box is topped off by clear plexi glass to seal the filter from the heat, providing a sweet view and easy access to the filter. Not only is it laser cut for perfct fitment, but also abrasion resistant. Lastly, the box easily mounts in the stock location with the laser cut brackets and CNC-lathed mounting feet.
