Improves Horsepower.

    BBK Cold air intake.

    Well first I will start with the bad. This is not my first time doing a cold air intake so I know what I'm doing. The intake fits bad. The hoses it came with dint not even fit on! Lucky for my I had heater hoses laying around and was able to clamp one down on it. That's the only bad was the fit. I used to have a 2001 mustang GT and got the cheap one on here they have on here with no issues with fitment. This intake is also not plastic. (which is my fault i should of read the description) It is a HEAVY hunk of metal. Now for the good. I cant say I dint gain anything because if I did I would be lying. Throttle response is GREAT. I noticed it right away and the car has much better top end. Before to pass people I really had to get on it to pass traffic. But for the price it is not worth it. You will get the same gains with the cheap 84dollar intake on here. The tube size is the same and you are only paying for the name and I should of known that. But then again Nice gains and I'm very stubborn when it comes to noticing gains with little mods. This one was good. But save your money and get the cheap intake and use the rest for a bigger throttle body and a plenum.

    Great Product!

    The intake is a really great product. It was a little difficult to put the intake on through the fender by yourself. So it's recommended with two people. My only complaint about this intake is the hose not fitting. I thought maybe they corrected the hose size since a few were complaining but they didn't. So I purchased a 1/2" hose and it fit perfect. Other than that, man you can really hear the "sucking sound" in the higher RPMS!

    Awesome Intake!!

    This intake sounds amazing. You can hear the air sucking into the car. The black finish looks very sleek. Install was a pain but if you have a buddy help you it should not take more than 45 mins. The only hard part was getting the filter in the fender. Other than that the hoses have to be stretched as far as they can go. Instructions are poor but an intake installation is common sense. Overall i am very pleased with this purchase.

    Poor Fitment

    The performance gain is hard to tell for me because I did this the same time as my tuner, which was a big jump btw! But the instructions on this were so-so, you can figure it out by yourself, but one hose provided barely fit, and another existing one is too short and hardly fits, also when I came to clamping the actual filter on, it was a two man job! Me and my buddy barely got it on, and just with how we had to situate the piping to get the filter on, now none of my hose clamps line up with the grooves on my rubber pieces provided, which are stretched to the max to hold this all together. I'll need to make a trip to Advanced to get 2 new hoses, a clamp, and possibly longer rubber pieces to be happy with this CAI.

    Great CAI once its installed properly

    Let me start by first saying the CAI is great for its purpose. It does its job, I can feel a slight gain overall, and it looks great under the hood. This CAI is a VERY tight fit. Everything has to be installed 100% perfect to get it to fit. I also wish the rubber gasket was big enough to keep the air filter and tube flush without moving. I managed to use an older one from the previous CAI that was on my 02 GT. Just keep in mind this kit will fit perfect as long as you follow the directions well. Overall the directions are pretty bad, but a little common sense helps out. Pleased with the product, definitely worth the money and as always AM has my back with the super fast shipping!

    Ehh

    I really like the look and the gain i got from it. I noticed it rift away. The thing that really sucks about this was just putting it on. Not the best fit but got it to work.

    An easy upgrade

    I already had a CAI, but it was from a previous owner and falling apart, and chose this one based on looks, reviews, and price. The black finish looks much more at home in the SN95 engine bay compared to the chrome (which just seems a little too much). Installation was a breeze - with one exception. Since you have to install the filter from underneath the car, I would recommend that you jack the front of the car up to make it easier for you to get up into the fender. It took a fair amount of finagling for me to get everything firmly attached. In addition, depending on what hoses you have, you could run into a fitment problem, as they might be too small/big to fit on the hose ports. I happened to have a few extra hose bits lying around, and got everything sorted. Overall, it is well worth the time and effort to get it installed.

    CAI

    I got this to replace my existing cold air intake because my old one started to rust and it looked bad. It fit perfectly except one of the hoses was a little to short so i used a peice i had in the garage. It gave me a little more hp then my old one did so i weas happy about that.

    It's decent

    I'm happy with it i can tell it has a little more power and torque. I wasn't impressed with the instructions, it didnt say whether or was a dry or oiled filter ,and it's a little difficult to get the filter on by yourself. Other than those minor thing i'm happy.
