Suburb Quality and Fitment
The 2011+ GT Airaid MXP cold air intake is an ideal choice for those who are looking to add power with a simple bolt on intake system. The price is fair, the installation is simple, no doubt that it adds power, and it is a high quality product. My experience with this product has been more than satisfying since the time I placed my order to its current status installed in my car which is daily driven. I first off must start by saying that American Muscle is currently on my tops list for online shopping, the ordering process was simple, and I had my items shipped to my front door within a day with ground shipping option. They are definitely on top of their game.
This intake system can be used with or without a tune. To use the intake without a tune you must have the modular venturi tube (MVT) installed. Upon inspection of the product you can see for yourself that the intake system is a high quality product. The included grommets and fittings are beautifully crafted, and everything fits well, and tight. Pretty simple installation, the hardest part was putting the grommets into the intake, the blind plug that is used for the manual transmission installation can be a bit of a squeeze, but with the help of a flat head screwdriver it will go in. Absolutely no complaints at all about fitment on the vehicle, this intake system fits better than OEM and can be removed or installed within four minutes once you know how to install it. I also must add that this intake system includes a sound tube delete kit for those who do not like the sound tube, I used this feature and love the cleaner look and quieter cabin.
I currently have this intake paired with a 93 Performance tune from BAMA and I can tell you, it is totally worth it. If I hold the RPMs at 3500 in first gear, and go WOT, it will spin all the way to third on the OEM 235 Pirellis and 3.73 rear end. Driver mod and wider stickier tires may be needed after installation of the intake system.
If you are having trouble choosing between C&L, JLT, Steeda, Roush, and Airaid. You are in the same boat I was. I would definitely recommend the Airaid. The price is fair, the quality is good, the fitment is superb, the engineering and design is great, the diameter of the intake tube is one of the widest of all intakes offered, you can use it with or without a tune, it fits on both the automatic and the manual versions of the mustang GT and if I recall it produced the most power out of all the intake systems offered at the time I purchased the product.
