Review & Install Video

Hey everybody, Dave from Bama performance, and today I have an Airaid cold air intake kit, designed for your 05-09 Mustang GT. This kit comes with everything you’re going to need, including a tube insert, the tube itself, all the clamps, and a new heat shield and filter. Now something you might have noticed just by looking at it, this features a sleek, black design, right on down through the couplers. Something you might not have noticed, is this kit includes an insert, now this insert goes inside the tube, and slightly restricts flow, allowing you to run this kit on your 05-09 GT, right out of the box, with no tune required, and still see a good performance gain. But if you’re looking for maximum gains like we are today, we’re going to remove the insert, and put this on our 05 GT, and get some serious dyn numbers. But before we do that, let’s get our stock GT up there and see what our baseline performance numbers are. We produced 257 horse power and 285 ft/lbs of torque. So we just ran the car stock and immediately took that intake off and installed our Airaid all black cold air intake kit. We installed a 93 Octane Bama race tune, here’s what this will do for you, it’ll give the optimized spark timing, adjusts your variable cam timing, give you a perfect air/fuel ratio, and dramatically improve your throttle response. We re-ran it with the Bama tune. Showing up with an additional 27 horse power and 26 ft/lbs of torque.

Increase horsepower and torque. Airaid Cold Air Intake Systems are computer designed to give your engine maximum air flow, which translates to more horsepower, torque and improved fuel efficiency. Airaid intakes are dyno tested and tuned for maximum performance and efficiency.

Superior Filtration. This cold air intake not only improves horsepower, but it also provides superior air filtration, since it includes an Airaid Premium Filter with SynthaFlow® technology. SynthaFlow® is a synthetic nano-fiber material that traps the smallest dirt particles down to 2 microns in size that ordinary cotton-gauze “performance” filters just can’t capture. And best of all Airaid Premium Filters are washable and re-usable saving you money.

CARB Certified. Best of all this Airaid Mustang FIPK Air Intake Kit is 50-state smog legal under Carb EO# D-609-2 for April 2005 through 2006 GT models, 2007 to 2009 pending approval.

Application. This Airaid kit is designed to fit the 2005-2009 Mustang GT with no computer re-tune required when installed with the included "Modular Venturi Tube". The Modular Venturi Tube (MVT) can be removed for off-road use only. By utilizing state of the art computer-aided designs, Airaid Intake Systems offer unmatched fit, finish, and power!

Venturi Removed & BAMA tune run on Octane 87? Hi! I want to now if we could use this CAI with the modular venturi tube (MVT) removed with a street tune octane 87 from BAMA? If we remove the MVT, is it mandatory to use octane 91 or better or we could use octane 87? Thanks!


  • The tunes that we create would be for having the MVT removed and they would work for any octane. The octane of the fuel is more important to spark timing within the tune than anything else.

How much gain w/out a tune? Is it worth it? I have a drop in k&n filter in my stock airbox. Would it be worth it to get a cai system w/out a tune bc im trying to avoid getting a tune. Will it still increase the airflow to make a difference in sound and performance over the k&n drop in filter? Im mainly looking for a deeper sound, better fuel economy, and a few more hps. Thanks


  • Yes, It will increase air flow a bit and you will get that old school deep sound from under the hood when you get on the gas. If I were you I would get one like the no tune required Air Raid. It has a insert called a Modular Venturi Tube which restricts the air flow just enough to not require a tune. Then if you should decide to get a tune you just remove the insert and you have a full race CAI that requires a tune. The best of both wolds. Because trust me down the road you will want a tune.

    I ordered this systen on June 14, 2010, recieved it on June 16, installed it on my 05 GT that day. To my surprise, it went on with no problems at all. Did not have to retune as the motor started rite up and was amazed at the power gain. It turned a beast into a bigger beast. No warning lites as of now. Great service from AM as usual.

    Great first mod to the car

    This is the first mod that I've done on my car and also first mod that I've ever done. I found that the instructions were a little easier to read and view the pictures online rather then the ones that came in the box. The intake took about two to two and a half hours from start to finish. I noticed a very nice gain and improvement with the intake even with the insert installed. The only down side I had was that the hose on the intake by the throttle body was maybe about three inches short but it wasn't a big problem since there was an advance auto down the block which had the hose and cut it to the right length

    A must have for anyone wanting that feeling of power, I have always used AIR RAID on all of my mustangs from 04-07. The CAI systems comes with a "Modular Venturi Tube" that can be removed if you have a tuner for even more air gains so you get even more bang for your buck!

    Woke the car right up.

    As this is my first muscle car, i was impressed with the car in stock form. However, as I continued reading on various mustang forums, I kept reading about cold air intakes and getting a tune. I first purchased this intake because of the no tune required option. Installation was super easy, the instructions were very straight forward. If you have any mechanical aptitude whatsoever this is a breeze. Even if you don't it is such a simple install. It took around 45 minutes and I was going slow. The first thing I noticed was the sound. It makes the engine growl under acceleration. There was also a slight increase in throttle response and what seemed like a little extra hp. I installed it just before a 330 mile trip. There was a noticeable increase in mpg, by about 2-3 as far as I could tell. Great product, very fast shipping and very high quality materials. Looks like standard equipment under the hood. I now have a custom 91 octane race tune and the car is absolutely awesome. I would highly recommend this product. Don't be fooled because it's all plastic. It is a quality piece.

    The first modification you should do

    This is a well engineered product that installs quickly and looks stock. The sound and throttle response are immediately obivous, and this is how your mustang should have come from the factor (and it turns out it does now!) The sound at full throttle is worth the price. It's a deep growl that is all muscle car!

    Ordered CAI late on Tuesday night and it was delivered on Thursday. Everything was in the box as indicated on the checklist and it took about 30 minutes to install carefully following the instructions. The most time consuming part was trying to cut off the fittings from the factory breather tube to install the breather hose provided in the kit in accordance with the directions. All parts of the CAI assembly itself fit perfectly and was easy to install. The only real complaint is the aluminum hose fitting provided in the kit for the valve cover breather hose is too large for the factory fitting to slide over as directed in the instructions. Also, the hose in the kit for the valve cover breather (a length of generic breather hose) is barely long enough to reach from the valve cover to the aluminum hose fitting. I will have to replace the hose from the kit with a longer one so I can clamp it to the aluminum fitting. This issue with the provided breather parts is the reason I gave only four stars for fit. If AIRAID could resolve the issues with the breather hose parts, the kit would be perfect. Prior to purchase I had seen complaints in some previous reviews about cuts on the main intake tube that caused me some concern but all of the pieces of the CAI assembly I received were pristine with no cuts or scratches. After installation, I took my GT out on my favorite piece of Interstate and I could feel a difference. I will be running the venturi tube in the CAI until finances allow the purchase of a Tuner for max effects. I am very satisfied with my purchase from AM. Thanks!

    First Cold Air Intake

    This is a great product that isn't too difficult to install and makes a noticable difference. Took me a little longer to receive it due to a shipping issue. This is the first cai I've ever installed and also the most mechanical thing I've done. I really took my time making sure I did everything right, but it took me around 3 hours due to the incredibly tight fit; It was very hard for me to get the couplings on, thought I was never going to be able to get it together, but I eventually got it. The instructions were good, but definately needed to do a couple things differently. Everything was of great quality and is definately worth the purchase. I couldn't believe the growl the car made the first time I drove it after, its amazing. I installed it without the insert with a new tune and there wasn't a single problem. The only other problem I had was that there are a couple noticable cuts on my intake tube, wasn't quite satisfied with that, but oh well I guess.

    Feels Great

    I have been a mechanic and a mustang enthusiast for 5 years, this product is great, I love the fact that you can leave it without tune but if you ever do decide to tune it's just a quick adjustment. I can definitely feel the power specially on 3rd gear (manual). Also sounds like a beast with my pipes full off road x pipe and violators. I recommend this to anyone who wants to give their pony some power and clean air...install took about 30m with few basic tool, the only small thing I did not like was the thick heavy hose for the breathing valve that I had to cut down size...but not a big deal at all its very minor.

    Well performance and sound

    It performed very well and sounded very nice. It has a great design. The only thing I didn't like was the breather hose, it was too bulky, heavy and long..have to cut it and make it fit...but not a big deal it doesn't affect anything. I'm a master mechanic it only took about 20 minutes with the right tools, it's very basic to install shouldn't take more than an hour. Over all I'm very happy it's a great choice I recommend this over KandN for a V8.

    This CAI is one of airaids's best. Very east install along with massive power and sound. Best part about it is that you don't need to spend another few hundred on a tuner to feel the power this thing has.
