I recently purchased the K&N CAI kit for my 2005 F350 5.4L. It was the only CAI kit on the market for my application. I personally like the True Flow CAI kits but they do not offer anything for either of our trucks.
Summit Racing offers four CAI kits for your truck:
I just installed a volant inake last night. I unplugged the battery for 10 min. Reinstalled my sct. And now Im check engine light. I checked the codes and I have 2 codes that says its running rich? The check engine light didnt come on till I had about 50 miles after installation. What do I do now.
Let me say from the start that I am no expert on anything mechanical... I have read on this site that after you install a CAI kit, the ECM needs time to re-learn the air/fuel mixture for optimum performance. If you immediately installed your SCT tuner, you may have selected a tune that the ECM perceives as too aggressive. I would un-install the SCT tuner and drive you truck for a few days to allow the ECM to complete the learning curve. Then re-install your SCT tuner.
If this is incorrect, please feel free to correct me.
This afternoon I disconnected the battery for 20min. Turned the tune back to stock and I still got the same 2 codes. So I decided to try out the performance tune and I got no codes and its running really strong now. So lets see how long it works. The last couple weeks its been -15 so that might have something to do with it. Its running good right now.
