  • Stock Factory Air Intake
  1. Disconnect negative terminal on your battery.
  2. Disconnect Mass Air Flow (MAF) harness. Pull the red clip up and pull outward from the assembly.
  3. Disconnect Vacuum (PCV) Hose. Push the slip over the little notch and pull the house off.
  4. Remove the bolt holding the Air filter housing, and loosen the clamp near the throttle body.

5. Remove the intake assembly and set aside.

6. Remove the radiator shroud. Use a flathead screwdriver to pry the pin up, and then remove the pin assembly. (mines silver)

7. With the shroud removed, remove the upper radiator support. remove the bolt closest to the grill, and then work the piece off.

8. Put the blue filter coupler on the throttle body and slip a steel band over and tighten(the piece has a grove in it for the band to fit into)

9. Remove the MAF assembly from the original intake and transfer it to the new BBK intake piping.

10. Put the black shroud over the new intake pipe and install the new air filter. Slide it on until it meets the MAF assembly.

11. Put the shroud insulation over the shroud. i cut it in the middle so it would go around the 90 degree bend easier.

12. Put the radiator support and shroud back on.

13. Reconnect the MAF harness and PCV Line.

14. Reconnect your negative battery terminal.

Finished Installation

15. Start the car and listen for any air or vacuum leaks, a vacuum leak could cause the check engine light to come on. If your check engine light does come on double check all your connections and make sure they are tight. A nice feature of the BBK CAI is that it doesnotrequire a computer retune for use on the 2005 V6 Mustangs like other brands do.

16. Now just admire the good looks and extra horsepower your new BBK cold air intake has to offer.
