Review & Install Video

Hey I’m Justin with, and this is my breakdown of BBK’s blackout and chrome cold air intake systems fitting the 5.0L Coyote motor found in all 2011 and newer Mustang GTs. Starting with the BBK blackout cold air intake which as you can see gets its name for good reason, everything on this intake has been blacked out, including the lightweight aluminum intake tube and heat shield, making for a very stealthy appearance under the hood. The only thing that isn’t black, the reusable high flow intake filter and couplers, are finished off in BBK’s signature blue color. The chrome version of this intake obviously sports a bright chrome finish, and is perfect for those of you who enjoy a little more flash and bling under the hood. Just like the blacked out version, the chrome versions features a black aluminum heat shield, all the hardware necessary for install, along with the BBK signature blue high flow filter and couplers. A couple of big points with both of these intakes, for starters the blackout and chrome versions are both tune required intakes, meaning you can bolt them right up to your Coyote motor and go, without the need for an aftermarket tune, and still make more power than your factory airbox. In addition, both intakes do include an integrated MAF housing, and a bung for your interior sound tube. If you’re not familiar with what the interior sound tube is, it’s basically a bung here which connects a hose to the firewall, and pumps all that intake noise into the cabin. If you’re not a fan of this you can always use the included cap to plug it off. So that just leaves the big question, just how much power can we expect from using these intakes? Well we already got our baseline run out of the way by using our automatic 2011 GT behind me, now let’s get to work installing each one of these intakes and make a couple of runs. Installing either one of these BBK’s is a pretty straightforward task that should only take you about an hour in the driveway using basic hand tools. If you run into any problems you can always reference the manufacturer’s detailed instructions, located on this product page. So I know I said you don’t need to run a tune with these intakes from BBK, but, in the endless quest for maximum horsepower, we’re going to upload one of our custom Bama tunes to see what these intakes are really capable of on our Coyote motor. This tune’s going to do a couple of things for us, for one it’s going to optimize our spark timing, it’s going to optimize our cam timing, and it should get those air/fuel ratios right where they need to be. First we’re going to run the blackout intake from BBK, and then switch that out for the chrome version, and see what the numbers say. Our baseline run with our automatic 2011 GT gave us 336 horsepower, and 302 ft/lbs of torque. With our BBK/Bama combination, we put down 366 horsepower and 338 ft/lbs of torque, making for a peak gain of 30 horsepower over our baseline numbers, and gains of 37 horsepower and 58 ft/lbs of torque throughout the curve. Both of these intakes from BBK are a great option for the Mustang owner that is looking for a simple bolt on mod that will net you some decent gains without a tune and look great under the hood while doing so, and as always you can check them both out right here at

Will this part also work on my 2012 Boss 302? The lack of a tune requirement is important to me because of my TracKey. Also want to make sure that the oil in the filter will not mess anything up in my car.


  • You shouldn't have a problem. The description says for 5.0 v8 mustangs. The BOSS 302 is still the 5.0 liter, so you should be fine

  • Simple answer. No. It will just allow your car to breath a little easier. The track key just reprograms your computer. Installation of this particular CAI will not effect that (and YES - It will give your car a very nice growl both on the track and off)

    BBK = Ease and Performance

    My Wife has a 2012 5.0 that was getting about 16mpg. For Christmas I bought and installed the BBK CAI on her car. Instructions were very clear, and easy to understand, very detailed and idiot proof. Took me about an hour maybe hour and fifteen. Looks great under the hood, that extra bling factor; her mpg has improved to 17 and she says the throttle response is better and she loves it. I'd say I scored a few points with this one. You won't be disappointed, looks and works great.

    BBK COLD AIR INTAKE installation.

    BBK cold air intake installation went pretty good except I had to cut the bottom of the black filter surround in order for it to clear the ABS module. After snipping away at it for about ten minutes, and using sheet metal crimpers to flatten, it fit really well. As for the performance aspect, I could not have asked for a better improvement over the factory CAI box. It jazzes up the under side of the hood to nearly show car status.

    Sound Tube was a difficult to install.

    I installed the intake without any problems until I had to install the sound tube, that took some work, finally got the clam secured after about 30 minutes of fighting with it. The BBK looks as good as it sounds. My engine compartment really looks like it belongs in a car show now. Saving $$ to get the tuner next.

    BBK CAI (11-12 GT)

    Overall the CAI was a good buy. The intake was great , gave a little more HP and the sound was a very deep and low growl. The product is a great buy. Only problem i had was at higher RPMs around 6500-7200 rpm the car would miss. After replacing this intake with the stock. It never would miss. After putting it back on. It did it multiple times , while racing my friends CBR 600. A tune would have fixed the issue im sure. Just didnt want to spend more money for a tune.

    BBK cold air intake

    Really a great looking intake. The chrome and blue really set it off under the hood. Engine seem stronger and really sounds great at low or high RPM range. Seem to be getting a couple more miles per gallon. Was easy to install, just watch the video, its alot better than the instructions that came with it. A good product at a fair price.

    generally good but a few problems

    Really looks good. Relatively easy to install but there were a few problems. First, BBK reversed the connections for the auto trans vac line & the PCV line. It cramps the PCV line & there is an opening in the engine cover for the trans vac line that has nothing coming out of it because that hose is now routed lower. Also, the sound tube is a real challenge to hook back up. Longest & most frustrating part of the install. Installation instructions could be better. Fortunately, I had looked at the video on the web. It was much more thorough. Now the #1 complaint on this item: since the install, my MPG has dropped 2 MPG. I have not changed the way I am driving the car. Hope it is the computer re-calibrating but, if I put 2 more tanks of gas in with no improvement, I will go back to factory air intake & sell this one at a car show.

    nice looks & fit but not so good performance

    The kit fits well, installs pretty easily, & looks really good. Unfortunately, without re-programming the CPU, the car's performance actually fell. This was true of both the horsepower & the gas milage. Horsepower may be better at the high RPM range but who drives at 5,000-6,000 RPM? Also, gas mileage dropped by 15% to 20%. Liked the looks but went back to stock. Car has more pick-up (torque) from stoplight to stoplight & getting on the expressway & the gas mileage is back up. Guess you cannot beat Ford's design work on the car unless you get into re-programming.

    Well Made, Easy Install

    Took me about an hour to install, and that was moving slowly. Good parts, well made, easy instructions. I wish they had included a clamp for the sound tube, and the isolation box could be fitted in a little more sturdily, it also would be nice if it took advantage of the stock cold air scoop, but overall pretty decent! Easy install, looks good, sounds good, seems to have helped performance.

    Install was less than an hour, basic tools needed. I feel a huge difference when I step on it from 4000 rpms. 1000-4000 feels the same. The whistle sounds great. And it looks awesome under my hood. Highly recommend for those looking for power and gas mileage.

    Decent gains for the price. Looks awesome under the hood.

    Install of the BBK CAI was easy enough. Removing the snorkel for the stock air intake proved to be slightly more difficult than expected. Performance gains are noticeable. Love the sound of the air whistling into the intake! The chrome gives under the hood a whole new level of character. Looks good, sounds good, worth every penny.

    Air to Fuel

    Oddly enough the intake air is actually now hotter, however it does make sense because the stock air box is basically getting it from right next to the front grille and this is pulling from inside the engine bay. As mentioned in the description the stock intake was just choking the engine because of how restrictive it was. I have had the car stall when taking it out of gear coming up to stop signs twice and it only seems to happen relatively soon after starting the car ( 2 - 3 minutes ). I think it might just need to be tuned. That minor issue aside, the performance increases during wide open throttle are WELL worth the cost of this product.
