Hey everyone I’m Justin with AmericanMuscle.com and I’m taking a detailed look into Airaid’s Race cold air intake system for all 05-09 Mustang GTs. This kit is designed to give your Mustang a serious boost in performance when paired with a tune, by giving you maximum air flow, which translates into more horse power, more torque, and improved fuel efficiency. The kit comes with everything you need including the intake tube itself, heat shield, washable high flow filter, and all coppers and hardware. Now the tube, and the shield are made from a durable high intensity polyethylene which makes it less susceptible to heat soak, allowing for cooler, more dense air to be drawn into your engine. It also makes for a sleeker appearance under the hood as well. But enough with all the technical talk already we’re here to see how much power this intake is going to put down, but before we go bolting everything up, we need to get a baseline number from our 2006 GT back there. So in stock form our GT put down a total of 269 horse power, and 296 ft/lbs of torque. Now let’s get that stock airbox out of there and install our Airaid intake, which should take you no longer than an hour using standard hand tools. As we mentioned earlier, in order to run this race intake from Airaid, you will need to pair it with a performance tune, we’re going to upload our custom 93 octane Bama tune which is going to optimize your spark timing, adjust your variable cam timing, perfect those air/fuel ratios, and give you drastically improved throttle response. So with all that done and our intake installed lets turn the roller one more time, and see the improvement this intake made on our GT. Our Airaid equipped GT made a total of 296 horse power, and 313 ft/lbs of torque, making for a peak gain of 27 horse power over our baseline numbers, and a gain of 35 horse power, and 30 ft/lbs of torque throughout the curve. So if you and your Mustang are on the endless quest for maximum horse power and you either have a tuner, or plan on getting one in the near future, then you’ll definitely enjoy the gains you see from this race intake from Airaid.

What is the difference between this cold air intake and the other Airaid cold air intake (Item # 52100) ? Item # 52100 vs Item # 52109

SuperSan

  • CAI (52100) does not require a computer tune as it comes with a Modular Venturi Tube installed. Race CAI (52109) is an AmericanMuscle exclusive, higher HP and TQ gaining version of the previously mentioned "no-tune required" CAI, which does in fact require a new tune. Can't go wrong with this Race CAI! Getting a tune on your Mustang when doing any type of modding is one of the best things you can do and helps you gain the most from you upgrades! If you don't have a tuner, we offer some great options with our most popular being the SF3 tuner with Free Tunes for Life! Check out the link below!!

    Best Intake for the Money if the car is tunable

    Picked this up at the AM Scratch and Dent tent for 154.99 and it looks like new so Thanks to AM for that. Install was pretty straight forward. Running a AirRaid Diablo Tune with it. The initial difference is incredible and the car moves so much more like a sports car. Great buy and great upgrade

    Installation took less than an hour, the directions are right on. Prior to installation I took the car out for a couple of runs to gauge the difference. After install, loading the tunes was easy and there is a noticable difference in the throttle response and it sounds great. I had the car out with the race tune and met up with a challenger, took him from the start and never saw him until we met at the next light.

    Great intake

    Very easy to install. I did not dyno before or after so I cannot say for sure if the HP and torque claims are completely acurate but I can say there are definately noticable gains in power and sound with a tune from BAMA. I am completely happy with my purchase and American Muscle. Keep it up, guys.

    Airaid Race CAI on 2006 GT

    I ordered a package deal with both the Airaid Race CAI and an SCT tuner. Everything came packaged very well. I was very pleased with the appearance and "feel" of all the parts that came. Everything seemed to be of good quality. This was my first foray into anything actually mechanical on a car beyond changing oil, etc, so I took everything painstakingly slow and took a ton of pictures. Total install time was about 2-2.5 hours. (Instructions sheet was "ok." Pictures were subpar, but adequate even for someone who was pretty new to this.) If you are comfortable working on cars, I think it could be done in 45 minutes, honestly. As far as performance goes, I don't know whether most of the gains came from the CAI or the tuner, since you have to run a new tune as soon as you install this CAI, but let me summarize by saying I literally started giggling just pulling out of the garage with the 89 performance tune loaded. I am sure that opening up the airflow helped immensely as well. And, my engine bay looks cooler now. Incredibly happy with the product.

    Get It

    Installed in less than 2 hours. Hardest part was finding stock air box mount grommets. Intake fit good and mounted solid. Car pulls hard at all RPM's. This woke up my car even more. There is a big difference between the Airaid and my old cold air intake. I love the performance increase. The intake plus the new ve tune is a great mod with noticeable performance increase. Get this intake, you will not be sorry.

    Great product!

    If you're debating between this and the "no tune required" version, please do yourself a favor and go with this one. Yes it means purchasing a tuner, but it is well worth it! The sound is incredible. It's actually fairly tame while at 30% throttle or less, but anything over 30% throttle and this deep growl bellows from the exhaust. I was literally giggling the first time I drove it after the install. I haven't dyno'd it, but I'd say there's no reason to question the claims in hp increase. Install was fairly strait forward. There's a few little quirks that could be ironed out. Such as the rubber seal that fits to the top of the heat shield hitting the intake tune preventing it from seating all the way down above the intake. And the metal clamping bands could have been pre-formed to make getting them on a little easier. Oh, and the pictures in the instructions are a joke. There's several typos and mis-spelled words... However, I'm really just nit-picking. Mainly because there's no major flaws with this product. I highly recommend this CAI in addition to a Bama tune and at least CAT back exhaust. Exhaust isn't necessarily required, but with all the extra air coming in, it definately helps power to be able to get that air out quickly. One final note, there was a drop in low end torque. Not a lot, but noticable. And I can now feel the Charge Motion Control Plates suffocating the engine at high rpms. So CMC delete kit is definitely a must as well.

    the product fits like it belonged there from the getgo

    first installation was fast and easy and far as the difference it made was like day and night throttle responce was so much better and I could feel the increase in hp but the real proof was I let my son drive it and he was amazed the defference it made.

    Airraid Cold Air Intake

    I am very happy with the recient purchase of this product. The car seams to have a lot more pickup. The higher air flow also increased the flow of air through the exaust system giving the car a deeper sound. I like that . Well worth the money.
