Review & Installation Video

Hey everyone, Justin from here and today I have the cold air intake system from Airaid for all 99-04 Mustang GTs. Airaid has become one of the heavy hitters in terms of producing performance intakes and checking out this kit here today, it’s easy to see why, that quality construction and that sleek black appearance have made it one of our customer favorites. This kit from Airaid completely replaces your factory intake using everything you see here, you’ll receive the large diameter intake tube, plastic heat shield, reusable high flow filter, and all the hardware and couplers needed for install. Besides looking great under the hood, this kit is going to make more power and torque and actually increase your fuel efficiency as well, which is always a nice little bonus. You don’t have to run a tune when running this intake from Airaid, but we like to recommend pairing it up with one of our custom Bama tunes, to get the most power out of your car. Now let’s get that restrictive airbox out of there and install this kit from Airaid. This is something any backyard mechanic should be able to tackle in about an hour’s time using standard hand tools. In addition to installing the Airaid we’re also going to upload our custom 93 octane Bama tune, in hopes of really making some power with our cold air. This is going to optimize our spark timing, tweak those air/fuel ratios, and give us improved throttle response, and for automatics we’re also going to see increased shift firmness, and adjusted shift points. Now that we have our intake and our tune installed on our GT let’s run it one more time on the Dynojet, and see just how much power we were able to squeeze out of this combination. So our baseline run with our automatic 2000 GT gave us 222 horsepower and 260 ft/lbs of torque, our second run with the Airaid installed gave us 249 horsepower, and 295 ft/lbs of torque, making for a peak gain of 27 horsepower at the rear wheel, and gains of 34 horsepower, and 55 ft/lbs of torque, throughout the curve. There’s no denying our under the hood appearance has been improved, and our Dyno chart leaves us no doubt that we certainly picked up some solid gains, thanks in part to this intake from Airaid.

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 an increase in fuel efficiency. Airaid intakes are dyno tuned and tested for maximum performance and efficiency.

Superior Filtration. Each cold air intake 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 that ordinary cotton-gauze “performance” filters just can’t capture. Airaid Premium Filters, with SynthaFlow® can capture particulates down to 2 microns in size. And best of all 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-609-5.

Application. This Airaid kit is designed to fit the 1999-2004 4.6 GT Mustang with no computer retuning required. By utilizing state of the art computer-aided designs, Airaid Intake Systems offer unmatched fit, finish, and power!

How difficult is it to remove the filter once it is installed? Looking at some of the photos it looks like the ground connection above the filter might interfere with the removal of the filter for maintenance. Can someone tell me if you can remove the filter without messing with the rest of the box?

    Decent gains in higher RPM's

    I installed this on a bone stock 2002 4.6 GT. The instructions were accurate but lacked a warning about how fragile the stock mass air flow sensor is. I was trying to get mine to fit flush (had to get longer bolts to make it work) and cracked the MAF during the install. After fixing the factory/plastic MAF, the rest was easy. Pretty decent gains in the higher RPM/heavy throttle situations. Not much if any improvement down in the lower RPM/partial throttle opening situations. It does wake up a decent amount when in higher RPM / full throttle load situations. I'm debating on adding the Bama Tuner next or a BBK throttle body. I think I would do this again but I was hoping for a bit more performance gain. No whistling or gulping noises which I was worried about. It does sound a little better when you really put the pedal down.

    Rated it good across the board cause not everything is perfect from fit to finish. Had a little difficult time getting the intake over the 70mm tb but other than that it is a very nice intake. Would recommend this to others

    Bought this to REPLACE my bbk that has been an eye sore under my hood for two years. Very slight gains over the bbk, corrected my mystery sputtering problem, looks very good, and is very well made. I hope everyone reads this and spends a little more money up front for a part that with quality.

    1999 Mustang GT

    I purchased this Airaid CAI to add more HP to my 'stang. Fortunately, this was a great way to make my GT meaner and better airflow. I like this intake, but it was kind of a pain to line up the velocity stack, the nuts, the mass airflow box, and the air intake box. I struggled with it at first, but eventually got it. Also, the weatherstrip was a HUGE pain to try to put on and I couldn't get it so I just left it off. I hope this shouldn't affect me negatively too bad. But other than that, this intake is a GREAT way to add for HP to a GT.

    Great OEM look on the car

    I installed this in my 2003 GT in under 2 hours. I found it rather silly about some of the small parts, like AIRAID really couldn't install them themselves. Once in the car I recommend you use the original bolt FORD had in the fender wall as the AIRAID unit is a joke! And MAKE SURE ALL HOSES ARE AND STAY CONNECTED! Car now pulls real strong, even with the stock TB and plenum. Good Buy all around if you don't want go with the pricey JLT unit.

    This is a good part enjoyed putting it together but the only this is if you have anything bigger then a 65mm throttle body the sleeve is a bit tight and the clamp is too small so I had to pull one off the stock air intake

    Great Fit

    Got this as a Christmas gift and put it in today. Great instructions with pictures and very simple to install. One thing I will say, when taking out your old system, dont just rip and throw it out, you will need a few parts. Also, when tightening down the "Hump" boot to the MAF housing, dont push it all the way down, it will interfere with reattaching the MAF sensor. Great intake, not sure about the K&N Box, but the Airaid box has a nice extension that fits into the fender well to grab the air.

    Great quality product

    Took me and a buddy around 2 hours to put this on late one night. The hardest part is getting the MAF bolted on to the air box, since there is a rubber gasket on either side, which really just takes a second pair of hands. If you have the intake air temp sensor, I HIGHLY recommend using a little lubricant. It's virtually impossible to get the sensor in the grommet without it. I'm very happy with the intake, nice noticeable increase in sound and performance. It's definitely letting my baby breathe a little easier.
