The 5.0L V8 in our F150 is like a trusty old ox that works hard and will get the job done... but it won't do it quickly. To help our motor along we decided to drop in a new K&N intake as well as a Bully Dog tuner to squeeze a bit of extra power out and make our F150 just that much more capable.
K&N 57-Series Cold Air Intake
Under the hood we wanted an intake that was simple and hassle free so we chose to run a K&N 57-Series kit. K&N is widely known for having top notch filters and intake systems and this 57-Series is no exception. While it doesn't churn out massive horsepower numbers it does provide better throttle response, a better sound and an excellent reusable oiled filter. All of this comes in a package that is easy to install and helps bring out the best in our F150's V8. 11-14 F150 5.0L K&N 57-Series Cold Air Intake
Bully Dog GT Platinum Tuner
The best way to wake up our 5.0L was by changing up the tuning so we picked up a Bully Dog GT and got busy loading in a new tune. The tuner itself is easy to use, compact and has a surprisingly nice color screen given its size making it a perfect fit for our truck. The the new tune unlocked some extra power under the hood, but the most noticeable change came in the faster and firmer shifting. This allowed our F150 to more effectively put down the V8's power and stay in the power band longer for a better driving experience overall. 09-17 F150 Bully Dog GT Platinum Tuner & Monitor
