TRANSCRIPT

Hey I’m Justin with AmericanMuscle.com, 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 AmericanMuscle.com
