Description
Increases Horsepower and Torque. The biggest "bang for the buck" modification that anyone can make to their V6 Mustang is adding a Steeda cold air intake. Steeda's uniquely designed CAI allows your pony to breathe easier which translates into a significant increase of 16 to 20 more horsepower at the rear wheels.

Reusable High Flow Air Filter. The included Steeda dual cone air filter has more surface area than competitors single cone filters to allow your Pony to breath much easier for more power. And best of all the filter is reusable, just clean it, re-oil it, save money and go.

Stainless Steel Heat Shield. Steeda knows that hot air is bad for combustion. That's why they have included a heat shield made from 304 stainless steel to reduce the intake temperature to within 5-10 degrees of the ambient air for more horsepower.

Required Upgrade. Installation of this Cold Air Intake will require the use of a Mustang Handheld Tuner to reprogram the vehicles computer (ECU) for operation.

Application. This Steeda Cold Air Intake System is specifically designed for use on the 2005 to 2009 V6 Mustangs equipped with the 4.0L engine. A computer re-tune is required for operation.

Technical note: Installation of this Steeda CAI requires the use of a SCT SF3/X3 PowerFlash or SCT LiveWire tuner to reprogram the cars computer for the Cold Air Intake.

what a diffetence

Switched out the bbk chrome CAI with no tune required for this one with a tune required. What a change in response time, and you can just hear it gulping down the air. A must have mod in my book.

    Installed this, with the help of my 12 year old son, in about 15 minutes. Included instructions were spot on, couldn't have been much simpler. Flashed the computer and we were off. Power was noticeably increased, mileage change was negligible (maybe i was going to heavy on the pedal... maybe). Didn't hear the suction sound until i added a bigger throttle body. Awesome bolt on improvement.

    Wow

    Just installed this today, and along with the SCT X3 power flash, I have to say it really added some much needed power to my V6. Install was simple. 10 minutes tops. Great product.

    You can definitely feel it

    Had to install the CAI twice because the tuner had quite a few problems. First time took about a half hour. Second, less than 10 minutes once I knew what I was doing. Performance has improved. There's virtually no lag time between hitting the accelerator and actually accelerating, unlike without the tune / CAI. Haven't noticed any kind of change in the sound tho, not that it makes a difference.

    Get one

    My CNL cold air intake was getting old and i couldn't find a new cone in stock so i upgraded to this. It fits well and uses two prongs, and the hood to stay in place. The bolt location near the fender does not get used so i placed the bolt into the spot to keep it for later. Overall I like the steeda and it compares nicely to the CNL other than it does not come with a new tube and you use your stock rubber one. I also like how the steed comes with rubber to gasket off your cold air intake which is nice since I don't want water to seep in through mine which was possible with the CNL. Overall get this, it's steeda quality for sure. I finished my changes with a steeda throttle body spacer.

    Great product. Instantly noticed increase in power. There is also a great sound of air suction when you get on it.
