Free tunes for life! Every customer that purchases a tuner is enrolled in the "Free tunes for life" program. Any time that you make additional mods to your vehicle, our team of SCT certified Bama Custom Tuners will create new tunes for you.

Custom Bama Tunes specific to your vehicle. When you order a tuner, you aren't just getting a tuner - you are getting the tuner and 3 dyno-tested custom Bama tunes:

  • Street (87-93 octane) - the street tune is designed as a daily driver program that focuses in on increasing mid-range power. It does give up a few HP at higher RPMs, but that's why there is a Performance file. Automatic vehicles are further enhanced by making adjustments to the transmission's shift points and firmness.
  • Performance (87-93 octane) - The Performance program is designed to add power at 3000 RPMs and higher, focusing more on the top end horsepower and all out performance driving. Timing, fuel and throttle response settings are slightly more aggressive than the street tune. This is a great track tune but also works well for daily drivers that are looking for a little more "get up and go" than the street tune. The automatic transmission settings are the same as in the street tune.
  • Race (91 - 93 octane) - The race tune will ensure the largest increase in vehicle performance. Using the highest grade of fuel available in your area is mandatory. This file is designed for "Race only Use" as the timing, fuel, and throttle response settings are very aggressive. In fact, the adjustments are so aggressive, that we do not recommend it for daily driving as it may cause your vehicle to try to jump out from a stop and easily spin the tires. Finally, with the automatics, we implement entirely new shift points and firmness settings to further enhance the all-out performance of the vehicle.

Nitrous (91-unleaded race gas) - Our nitrous option can be added to any of our previously mentioned tune options, but only for 91-octane unleaded fuel.

Easy to load; easy to restore. Not only are the custom tunes easy to load on your vehicle, it is just as easy to restore your factory settings. When you load your custom tune on the vehicle, the tuner automatically stores your vehicle's factory settings. To return the vehicle to its factory settings, just plug the tuner back in, select the option to restore the factory settings, and you're done.

Review & Install Video

Hey everyone I’m Justin with, and today I’ll be taking a detailed look into this budget minded BBK cold air intake system for all 96-04 Mustang GTs. BBK has always played a big role in producing quality aftermarket Mustang parts ever since making some of the first EFI products for the early Fox body Mustangs back in the 80s. This kit is going to help give your ride more horse power and torque, and also add a nice throaty growl in the process by replacing that stock restrictive factory air box with everything you see here. The kit includes both Chrome intake tubes, your new heat shield, reusable high flow filter and all your necessary hardware. Now besides that quality construction that bright chrome finish is sure to make a nice improvement under any hood. This kit does not require a tune so it’s a great option for someone who might just be starting to mod their car and aren’t quite ready for a tune just yet. However if your after big power like we are today then you will definitely want to pair this intake up with a custom tune. But in order to see how much power this intake is going to make we need to get a baseline number down first from our 2000 GT back there. Our automatic 2000 GT Mustang just put down 222 horse power and 260 ft/lbs of torque in stock form. Now we’re going to install our BBK cold air intake system, which should only take us about an hour using standard hand tools. You will notice that this intake is equipped with a hole for your intake air temperature sensor, shown right here. Now if your car isn’t equipped with one of these sensors don’t worry, just go to your local part store, pick up a rubber plug for a few bucks and plug the hole, problem solved. So even though you don’t need to run a tune with this intake we’re looking for maximum gains here today, so with that being said we’re going to pair it up with our custom 93 octane Bama tune to optimize your spark timing, perfect those air fuel ratios and give you drastically improved throttle response. Alright now that we’ve got our BBK installed and our tune uploaded lets run our GT one more time on the DynoJet and see how we did. Our BBK equipped GT made a total of 245 horsepower and 288 ft/lbs of torque making for a peak gain of 23 horsepower over our baseline numbers and a very impressive gain of 31 horsepower and 47 ft/lb of torque throughout the curve. This intake from BBK is an all-around performer, not only did we make some serious power but the chrome finish really improved our under the hood appearance as well and it didn’t cost us an arm and a leg in the process. So if you’re looking for a quality intake from a company that loves Mustangs just as much as we do, then you will really enjoy this cold air from BBK.

My stang I was just wondering if one of these would fit my Mustang? I've noticed alot of these are for the GT but not the Cobra.


  • The GT and Cobra actually use different Cold Air Intakes. We don't have any kits already put together, but we do carry some intakes for your Cobra. Check out the following link, making sure to select 1994-1998 Cobra in the top filter: If you have any other questions, please don't hesitate to give us a call!

Question Resolved

Dyno required? Is a Dyno required for the Bama tune to come into action?


  • All of our Bama tunes are dyno tested on our DynoJet. The tunes would be created and loaded into the tuner after we receive your Mustang's mods and then the kit would be shipped out to you. Then just install, load the tunes and you're all set! Any additional questions, don't hesitate to give us a call - we'd be glad to help!

    Review from BBK Black Out Cold Air Intake (96-04 GT)

    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.

    Review from BBK Black Out Cold Air Intake (96-04 GT)

    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.

    I completed a lot of upgrades including PI intake & heads, headers, coils, injectors, plugs, TB, and my CHECK ENGINE light was on with a code showing it was running rich. With the CAI and tune installed, it runs smoother and doesn't have any codes. It sounds cool hearing the intake 'whistle' just off idle, and the power increase across the rev range is very noticeable. The engine now easily revs to 6,000rpm without running out of steam. Great product, only a few difficulties with the CAI installation as my car has the factory strut tower brace. I haven't noticed any real difference between the Street and Performance tunes; I likely won't try the Race tune. Thanks AM for a great product and service. Now I just need to find a place to install that cool plaque that comes with the tuner.

    Review from BBK Black Out Cold Air Intake (96-04 GT)

    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!

    Review from BBK Black Out Cold Air Intake (96-04 GT)

    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.

    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.
