Review & Install Video

Hey guys, Mike Wilson here with AmericanMuscle.com, standing here with the BBK cold air intake kit for the 2005-2009 Mustang V6. We’re going to combine this with a Bama race tune to see how much horse power and torque we get. But before we do that, we’re going to make a dyno run stock so we get some baseline horse power and torque numbers. Stock, our 2005 V6 automatic put down 172 horse power and 196 ft/lbs of torque. The BBK cold air intake kit is a great first modification that combines both power and style. By removing the factory restrictive airbox, and replacing with an open element reusable air filter, and a straight intake tube, you’ll notice increased horse power, torque, acceleration, and a throaty engine sound. And its bright, chrome finish, will definitely enhance the under-hood appearance of your Mustang. 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 lets do another dyno run, see what kind of horse power and torque numbers we can get. We installed the BBK cold air intake kit along with a Bama performance tune and our car put down 192 horse power and 218 ft/lbs of torque, gaining as much as 23 horse power and 32 ft/lbs of torque throughout the curve. We installed the BBK cold air intake kit and a Bama performance tune all in under an hours time using simple hand tools, and gained as much as 23 horse power and 32 ft/lbs of torque.

Improves Horsepower. This BBK Cold Air Intake kit completely replaces the factory air box and restrictive paper filter element in your V6 Pony with a high flow filter assembly for a noticeable increase in horsepower and throttle response, while filtering out destructive power-robbing dust particles.

No Tune Required. Unlike other Cold Air Intakes on the market for the 2005-2010 V6 mustangs the BBK CAI does not require a computer re-tune. The engineers at BBK really did their homework to improve your pony's power using the factory tune.

Reusable Filter. BBK designed their high flow cotton air filter to be reusable, so there's no need to go out and buy a new filter every few thousand miles. Just clean the filter, re-oil it, save money, and go!

Black Wrinkle Coat Finish. The BBK CAI not only improves your pony's horsepower and acceleration, but improves your Mustang's under hood appearance with an aggressive baked on black wrinkle powder coat finish.

Easy Install. The BBK Cold Air Intake kit was designed to install easily with basic hand tools. No extra modifications or special tools are required for the installation. All parts and instructions are included.

CARB Certified. Best of all this BBK Mustang Cold Air Intake Kit is 50-state smog legal under Carb EO# D-245-14 (applies to 2005-2008 V6 only).

Application. This BBK Cold Air Intake System is specifically designed to fit the 2005 to 2010 V6 Mustang with the 4.0L engine and does not require re-tuning the vehicles computer for operation.

Water Problems? I've heard that Mustangs (and less awesome cars "like it") with CAI's have a problem accidentally sucking water up (like when going through a puddle) is there a CAI that has a baffle or some sort of system to prevent water from getting into my beloved engine?

HntzGal

  • When I was looking at a CAI I was on the phone with AM talking to someone, and he was saying that the intake sits high enough in the v6s where it shouldn't be a problem so long as you're not running through lake Tahoe.

How do you clean the filter? ??

DS123

  • You're going to need to purchase a K&N Filter Recharge Kit from AM. First you soak with the cleaner for 10 minutes and then rinse it off and air dry. Then spray with oil. Please see attached guide on how to clean your filter. AM Link: http://1.cdn.lib.americanmuscle.com/files/92018-cust.pdf

Under the hood cleaning Can i Leave the intake filter on when i clean under the engine or would i have to take it off. i usually go to the car wash and spray down the engine with water. will the water mess up the filter?

Druml1n3

  • It's always a good idea to remove the filter or wrap it with a plastic bag use a couple of elastics to hold it in place to keep it dry. I would suggest washing your engine when it's cold to avoid any cracking due to the high heat. Also try to avoid any electronics under the such as ECU, and alternator when using a high pressure washer.

At about 3500 rpm I can hear a faint suction sound which is the CAI pulling air into the engine. Great product for a reasonable price. Next step is the 70mm throttle body or the Bama performance tune.

    Freakin` Awesome!

    This part opens up the car so much and makes it so much easier to accelerate. Every mustang should have one of these. I have an automatic trans so its made a world of a difference on my stang. The black looks way better than the crome in my opinion also. Instillation is easy peasy.

    Cold Air is a Breath of Fresh Air

    Installation is super easy for this part, the only major difficulty was when I found the screws you reuse on the Mass Air Sensor housing are two long and require the addition of washers to make them snug down properly. Am wondering if my stock screws (requiring T20 torx) are longer on my model than others, I can't believe all there CAI's shipped with holes two short to accept the entire length of the screw. A washer should not be required. Anyway, that plus a minor nit with that rubber edging they provide are the only thing that keeps this from being a 5 Star rating.

    Good, but will throw a code.

    I love this intake, I'm not sure if its giving me much of a performance gain but its definitely given my stang better responsiveness. The sucking sound isn't too bad either. My one gripe is that this intake will throw a lean code. I did an idle re-learn and it went away but it came back when I was stuck in traffic for 2 hours the other night. Gunna try to do another idle re-learn and repeat until I get a tuner.

    Fantastic CAI

    I bought this CAI about 6 months ago, I thought it was great and it was BUT then I tuned my car with a Bama tuner and it is even more useful now! Without the tune I only had about 5 more horses but with the tune you will gain 20+ horses. Either way tune or not this is a great mod! Easy install! No problems! Perfect first mod too!

    Quick Improvement

    The intake was very straight forward to install only took me half an hour and the fitment was perfect everything fit where it should. As soon as I turned the car on I instantly noticed the difference and of course that great whistle sound! Definitely noticed a throttle response and increase in mpg. Great price and quick shipping and easy upgrade any mustang owner should have one!

    YES it will fit the 2010 4.0 V6

    As being the odd-ball, one year only 2010 4.0 V6 I can confirm that this will indeed fit. I called and spoke to a salesperson who did "suggest" that it may not fit, but her listing did indeed say 05-10. I received the box of goodies I ordered the next day. Listed on the BBK packaging it conflicts what I was told as being only up to 2009. I installed it that afternoon after work, being careful not to damage anything just in case I needed to return it. After about 45 minutes I had the CAI installed with out a hitch. My only suggestion would be to ditch the old style hose clamps and replace them with T bolts. I am extremely happy with my purchase and the service I was given by AM.

    Bank cool air intake

    Love it, I would say best bang for the buck. I noticed a little more rumble when starting. The best asset was the higher RPM much quicker. I don't know how much extra HP , but I'm sure there will be much more with addition of dual exhaust .

    Intake review

    I absolutely love this product !!! I have a 4.0, I know they have power they just need the extra push. So I decided to make my first real mod a CAI, after shopping around I found a ton of intakes but non with such excellent reviews. So I forked up the $200 and pulled the trigger. It took litterally 40 minute top! Easy as can be. The power increase was unexpected, I didn't know it would be so much an increase; I just thought it wod be a little and that was it. I could not have been so wrong ! I love this product and I would recommend this intake to any mustang owner looking for more power, and better fuel econ this intake is for you!

    BBK CAI well worth the money

    If you're looking for a cheaper performance part that you will actually see a throttle response and horsepower gain with I don't think there is anything better than this BBK CAI. Works fabulous with a duel exhaust conversion kit that I also bought from AM. Really lets the car breath and gives it a little more of a grumble. A+ AM!

    Ok I got mine last week and installed it less than an hour. Great fit looks good and I'm happy with this purchase. I read a lot of reviews about people saying that there check engine light keeps coming on. I have had not one light come on after install. For the increase in horse power can't really tell maybe I need to get the race tuner to go with it. People if your thinking about buying this just do it, It Rocks,

    This product is great you can def feel a better throttle response and a little more horsepower and it gave my mustang a throater sound I have pypes dual exhaust and it make it sound great and cut down on the drone a little. It was super easy to install took me about 15 mins but I recommend wait 30 mins so you don't throw a code. I didn't wait and a engine light came on but I unhooked the battery for 30 mins it cleared the code and haven't had a problems since great product.
