Description
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 better fuel efficiency.

Perf. Package Does it fit the V6 w/ performance package?

AndrewJScott

  • Yes, but you have to trim the foam engine cover on the Performance Package V6 (at least on the 2012) at the breather tube where it attaches to the intake hose. I used a new Xacto blade and went really slow. It took five minutes. Be patient.

Will this intake cause the check engine light to come on? I've have seen a lot of situations where the CAI causes the check engine light to come on when installed without a tuner, do the airaids avoid that issue?

Evilpaper

  • No not at all you'll be fine I installed mine in 30 mins or less and have had no issues like that.

    Awesome Beginning Mod!

    After having a cold air intake on my last car and not seeing anything or really hearing anything, I was a little skeptic about buying one. So after reading enough about this intake and listening to sound clips on YouTube, I went ahead and ordered it. Install was a breeze and shouldn't take you longer than 15 mins. True, it's a tight fit, but just use a little spit and it goes right on. Just shows you it's not planning on going anywhere. Yes, you will need to use the rubber grommet on the stock air box with the Airaid box, and also disconnect the battery before you do this. It allows the MAF sensor to read the new info of air coming in. Once installed, I was amazed by how it sounded. It was almost like being in a stock GT! The performance gains are incredible. Fast throttle response and really pulls after 2nd. All in all, I highly recommend this Intake System. Best sound, gain, and price! Thanks AM and Airaid!

    I'm very impressed with the engineering of this product. It fits the factory cold air inlet and filter box location perfect. Installation is a breeze 15-30 min. The intake sound when you nail it is awsome! You also get a very nice growl at the upper rpm's at 3/4 throttle. A very slight increase at normal driving. The added HP's and looks are a bonus. I highly recommend the AirAid CAI great product at a great price.

    Excellent Intake!

    After a lot of research I decided to with the Airaid, and it is worth every penny in performance gains, but more importantly it is worth the money for the sound that is unleashed with this intake. I would have bought it just for the sound of the intake itself. The car actually sounds similar to the GT from inside the cab with the roar this intake produces. The instillation was a breeze, and only took 25 minutes to install by myself. I've read reviews that said you could use a second pair of hands to install the intake, but that is simply not the case. My instillation time includes removing the stock intake. The best tip I can give when installing any intake, is leave all couplings and bolts loose and when everything is in place tighten everything up. I also placed the rubber boot for the throttle body in front of a heater to loosen it up a bit before trying to install it on the car, which helped get the boot over the throttle body because the boot was softer. I did not tune the car after instillation and if I keep my foot out of it, which is even harder now, I routinely achieve 33-35 MPG at 65mph. This is up from the 32-33 MPG at the same speed before the CAI. I sell Fords for a living and I recommend American Muscle and the Airaid CAI as well as the other modifications I have installed from American Muscle to every customer who purchases a Ford Mustang! I have actually taken customers out in my 2012 Performance Package V6 Mustang just to show off the intake. Its just one of the ways I can pay American Muscle back for the excellent customer service and fast shipping they have provided on both purchases. There will be many more modifications to come! Thank you American Muscle!!

    Top Notch CAI!!

    This Airaid CAI is one of my favorite mods that I have done to my 2012 Mustang V6, let me tell you why. 1. The fit of this CAI is superb, it looks and feels like it should have been in the engine bay straight from Ford's factory. 2. The materials used are top notch - doesn't feel cheap, its made from solid materials. 3. Installation took less than 1hr to complete with basic hand-tools and was very simple (If you are not mechanically inclined you need not worry. As the provided instructions pretty much lay everything out for you plain as day). 4. I have a manual transmission and personally second to fourth gear is where you really can hear this CAI growl. Although you will see an overall volume increase across the board. Also my throttle response seems better after switching to this CAI~I've owned this product for 5 months now and I have no complaints. If you are looking at getting a CAI for the 2011+ Mustang V6, look no further this Airaid CAI rocks!! Also no tune required which is nice for those of you not wanting to risk voiding the warranty of the vehicle. If that's a concern...

    excellent!

    Improved throttle response, noticable power gain and a very nice growl when accelerating. It's quiet under normal driving, which is what I wanted but has a nice throaty roar between 2500 and 5000 revs. Can't say if gas mileage has improved but then again if that was a concern I would have bought a Fiesta!

    Great sound, Noticeable acceleration increase

    The sound this CAI makes under medium acceleration is absolutely fantastic, you won't be disappointed. It's a low growl and sounds exactly how a muscle car should. Flooring it is also a much better experience; the CAI screams and is backed up by the acceleration increase. Definitely a head turner. Also I wanted to give a shout out to AIRAIDS customer service, I accidentally ripped the 5/8 grommet, gave them a call and they immediately shipped me a new one, no questions asked. (be careful, make sure it's fully seated on the inside).

    CAI a must upgrade for your Mustang!

    Read many reviews on CAI and finally decided to get one for my Mustang. Easy install with the exception that its a tight fit and that is what made the install about 45 mins, if not probably 20 min to install. You can feel the improvement in horsepower and torque produced by the cold air. In terms of GPM improvement I have not seen any, but of course this due to the fact that I can avoid putting the pedal to the metal. For any Mustang owner this Air Aid CIA is a must. Highly recommended.

    Airaid CAI

    This is a great intake. The engine really roars when you put the pedal down. Also, you can really feel the extra power this CAI adds. This took only about 45 minutes to install the CAI. It wouldn't of taken that long but the CA tube is such a tignt fit, it was hard the get the hose on the throttle body. I only bought K&N CAI's for my last 2 mustangs, but i couldn't wait any longer for them to make one. I am deffinatly a fan of Airaid now.

    This intake is awesome! The install was really easy, you really have to take your time and make sure you install the throttle coupler first into the throttle body then the intake tube because it's a damn tight fit. And you're going to need a hex wrench to tighten the Airaid supplied screws to tighten the MAF sensor. The torx screwdriver ONLY removes the factory screws holding the MAF sensor. Other than that I couldn't be any happier with this CAI, thank you AM for this great product. When you combine this with the BAMA race or performance tune it transforms your V6 like no other! My stang pulls hard at 3000 rpm to, YOU WON'T REGRET this purchase trust me.
