BOLT on horsepower!!!

anyone with a 2004 5.4 L ford f-150, listen up. installing a 77 series K&N intake, throttle body space, and a programmer drastically improved gas mileage, horsepower, and throttle response. if you are interedted in improving your new f-150, that is what you want to do.

I have just purchased a 2006 f-150 5.4l and I am wondering about the k&n against airraid and volant, with your k&n installion is it just the open box system, or do you have a tube going down to your front grill helping feed more forced air into it and what type of programmer did you get, I have never really messed with on before, so I am wondering if the break it down for you. thankx

yes it will work with a 4.6. a friend of mine has a 97 f-150 4x4 with 4.6 k&n intake, throttle body spacer, and 4.56 gears. all of those mod to his truck made all the difference in the world. for the 4.6 motor i would recommend a diablo programmer. let me know how it turns out.
