Hi, I’m Mike Wilson with, and this is the Airaid cold air intake kit 2005-2009 Mustang V6. We’re going to show you what kind of horse power and torque numbers to expect when you combine this with a Bama performance 93 Octane race tune. But first, we’re going to do a stock dyno run so we have some baseline horse power and torque numbers to work on. Stock, our 2005 V6 automatic put down 172 horse power and 196 ft/lbs of torque. The Aidraid cold air intake kit replaces the factory restrictive airbox, with a one piece plastic intake tube, that incorporates the mass air housing. It also connects to a high flow airbox with a reusable air filter, which will increase horse power, torque, acceleration, and give you a throaty engine sound. Now we’re going to install this cold air intake, which should take less than an hour, and can be done with simple hand tools you have at home. Along with the cold air intake, we also installed one of our 93 octane Bama race tunes. A custom tune from Bama performance adjusts engine parameters to maximize your performance, through optimized air/fuel ratio, spark advance, enhanced throttle response, and for automatics, increased shift firmness, and adjustable shift points. Now let’s make another dyno run, see what kind of horse power and torque we can get. With the Airaid cold air intake and a Bama performance tune, our car put down 193 horse power and 222 ft/lbs of torque. We’re gaining as much as 26 horse power and 36 ft/lbs of torque throughout the curve. In under an hours time using simple hand tools we installed the Airaid cold air intake and a Bama performance tune, and gained as much as 26 horse power and 36 ft/lbs of torque.

I noticed some drops of water on the intake plastic shield??? I have heard of hydrolock from CAI systems. I checked the car after a lot of heavy rain and noticed some drops of water inside the intake plastic housing. I always try to avoid deep water when driving but am I in any danger of damaging the car? I found a product by Injen that they call a hydroshield that is a waterproof "bag" that goes over the cone but still allows full airflow. I just wanted to know if I should be worried about the small amount of water there? How much water does it take before it can be sucked into the intake system?


  • It would take much more water to hydrolock, what people are referring to is cold air intakes that hang near the bottom of the vehicle and can suck up large amounts of water from driving through puddles and large amounts of standing water. Even the stock intake is prone to small amounts of water.

how much horsepower does this add? is it really worth it just to get a little more power?


  • Typically you will see an 7 to 15 hp gain without a tune but with a tune you would most likely see a 25 to 35 hp gain. I highly recommend buying a hand held tuner to get the most out of your mods.

what gas mileage improvement has anyone experienced for a 2006 V6 Automatic installation? i am thinking of buying the Airraid CAI, and at this point do not want to pay hundreds for a tune. I have a dual exhaust on my 2006 V6 automatic and was wondering if anyone can tell me of their horsepower gains and fuel efficiency gains if any? thank you!

    I had a SR Performance CAI installed, but it was not smog legal, as i live in California...Installed this one, minor issues with the screws that come with it, but fixable. After installing it, I returned my vehicle to stock programing, and tested out the intake, very nice power gain and throttle response. Deffinetly better gains from a stock air box to this one, and best part yet, its Smog Legal! Thanks AM

    borrowed from friend

    a friend allowed me to put this in my car and i gave her the stock box. I have had it for a week now and I like it. sounds nice, gives it some more push on the car. The noise it makes also lets you know its working. a huge SWISH sound once you accelerate. a good buy. I don't think she is getting it back.

    purchased this intake with a bbk 70mm throttle body and steeda TB spacer a week later had true dual exhaust. I recently took a trip that was about 700 miles one way and I drove my Mustang and well I only had to stop once to fill up. Doing the math while on the road I was getting about 35-37 Miles to the gallon and to be honest my biggest item to than would have to be the intake, the amount of air flow my car gets is amazing, and the power wow that all I really have to say.

    Pony expansion

    Well, I was nervous about the intsallation. My first time replacing factory parts on a newer car. Installation was pretty much straight forward. There are a couple of times when the replacement parts were a extremely tight fit. Read the instruction twice before making the chance. The only concern after completing is the fit between the air box and the cooler assembly near the driver side head light. I believe this assembly is the power steering cooler, its very tight. The car sounds alot meaner, seem like I got a small boost in power! Well next upgrade is the dual exhaust...

    Airaid MUST GET!

    Just installed the CAI with no problems at all. The process took about 30-40 minutes at most. I bought this CAI because I didnt want the tuner yet and i feel that the Airaid system is the best in the market that doesnt require a tune. I love the deeper sound it gives my car and would recommed it to anyone with a V6!

    Increased Horsepower and Torque!

    This is a great CAI if you are looking to upgrade from your stock cold air intake! It will not give you as much of a power gain as one that requires a tune, but it will wake up your car a lot and it looks great under the hood. Installation was not difficult as it reused the factory MAF sensor and the nuts and bolts that were on the stock CAI.

    Looks and sounds great, kind of a tight fit with the tube that goes to the TB. Has a nice sound when you step on it. Next step is to put on a good set of exhaust pipes and a tuner.

    the product is made well and isn't flinzy

    The cold air intake came in due time. I was also able to put most of the intake system together inside my living room outside my car the night before so when I installed it it went extremely fast. The only thing I added was a large washer to put around the bolt that was supplied so it would give support to the intake wall to the car so it would not tier in the future.

    AirRaid CAI

    I was on the fence about getting a cold air intake for my car, but I have to say wow with this one. Packaging as always was superb-everything that I needed was included except for the tools obviously. Shipping as always from American Muscle is top notch and super fast! The install took me roughly about 40 minutes, only because I was still waking up from the UPS guy ringing my doorbell at 9 in the morning but that wasn't a big deal since my new toy came. It takes longer to take the stock airbox off than it does to install this CAI. That said, make sure to disconnect your negitive terminal and wait a couple of minutes before disconnecting the MAF sensor. After everything was on tight, and the battery reconnected, I fired up my engine and wow. You can hear a definite difference when you step on the gas. I have also combined this CAI with a true dual exhaust from a GT500, PowerAID throttle body spacer, and eventhough it didn't need it a custom 91 octane tune. Once that was done, holy c#@% the difference is like night and day. For the cost this is one of the best mods you can do to wake up your mustang, and should be the first mod on your list, a DEFINITE MUST BUY!!

I was very pleased the first time I started the stang and took it down the road. The car sounds much throaty going down the road and you can feel the power difference.

    Install took about 30 min & it was a snap. After the install I noticed an increase in highway gas mileage by about 1.5 mpg. Maybe a slight increase in hp but not much.
