Great product. I can really feel the throttle response and it looks great. Not bad for an extra 10 HP or so.

The product was everything i expected. It has helped make my car sound better and has helped with my gas economy. I just wish there was pictures on the directions to help me put the intake together.

    Power and Sound

    Recently purchased this for my '98 V6 Coupe and installed with the BBK Throttle body as well. Looks and sounds absolutely beautiful. Not so much of a sound difference at idle or lower RPMs, but once you start going up, you can really hear it. Definitely makes my little V6 sound like a V8. Some issues I had, however... The rubber grommet for the air flow indicator was loose. Not in the tube itself, but in holding the AFI in place. I had to cut apart a thick rubber band and tape it around the AFI, then force it into the grommet so it wouldn't spin. Works great now. Also, the tube connecting the TB and the tube connecting the filter and MAF were ALMOST too far apart. When I cinched the rubber hosing to connect the MAF to the tubing, it almost wasn't long enough. The metal cinch clamps are right at the edge of the tubes. Also, if you were watching the movie to help you, realize that you can't slide the filter in like they did. Pay attention to what they say, you have to go through the bottom of the fender, or at least I had to. And you will have to forgive my next description, I don't know much about cars, so I don't know what these parts are called.... There's a small rubber tube that connects the CAI to your engine. The gauge of this rubber tube was too small to fit over the metal small gauge tube on the BBK CAI. I found that the OTHER end of the rubber tube had been stretched out by the engine parts, so I reversed it and, with a little work, got it on. Works peachy now. Despite all of these difficulties and my UTTER LACK of car knowledge, I was able to get the CAI installed on the car. As I said, it looks and sounds beautiful and I was even able to feel more HP churn out of my engine. I did have a small issue with the TB when it was installed as well, but I'll direct you to the BBK Throttle body for '98 V6's to see what that was.

    About saving MPG I don't think so. It looks really nice in the car and the sound is amazing. The thing that save my life is that is now CARB certified, and it came with the OE sticker. California law's are up the a**.

    Good upgrade from stock!

    I had previously used one of these BBK cai's on a '96 V-6 that I was using as a daily driver/week-end strip car that was highly modified.The BBK cai makes a huge difference in all around performance from off idle to wide open throttle and even gas mileage!And you can hear the difference!The one I ordered previously for the '96 had a better fit as compared to the one we just recieved for my sons '97 V-6 Mustang.The notable difference being the rubber connectors especially from the throttle body to the larger diameter cai tubing not being stepped in size for a proper fit and seemed to be made of a little bit thinner material.I personally don't like trying to clamp a part together with something that is not properly sized for it.I didn't have this problem with the older version BBK!Other than that it seemed as if the aluminum tubing may have been just a bit shorter where it turns to go into the fenderwell making it a little harder to have enough sticking through to mount the air filter.Like the previous one on my daily driver it is imperative that you loosely assemble the CAI to get everything line up properly and in place before tightening for final install to have enought poking through the inner fender to mount the air filter well enough to stay put.Compared to the earlier version,I guess the only thing I have a small issue with is the NON stepped rubber boot.Other than that,it's probably the best CAI on the market for the V-6 Mustangs!And by the way this is in no way American Muscles fault!As always,American Muscle has GREAT SERVICE and in most cases,EXTREMELY FAST SHIPPING!And very reasonable prices.Again,thanks AM for a job well done!

    Sounds great!

    Quality construction, looks good, but was a pain in the butt to put in. Took about 1 1/2 hours, partly because I had a hard time getting all the sleeves to stay on, but I was also working with my son (15) as the Muastang is going to be his soon.

    Wonderful product. It really increases sound and looks great under the hood. Only problem with this is for all 98 model years, the air temperature sensor hole is not made for the altered 98 version. 94-97 have circular shaped air temp sensors which fit perfect in this product. 98 model year have an almost stop sign shaped sensor which prohibits you from installing. The solution to this is to use some small metal cutters and trim the plastic to a circular shape.

    best CAI

    I installed the BBK CAI on my '98 Mustang V6 and instantly felt a power increase. The only thing is the upper blue gasket was a little loose but nothing that the fasteners didnt fix. Plus there was a slight change in sound making it deeper and a little meaner. Overall this product is easy to install and i am very satisfied.

    "Best CAI on the Market"

    This was my first purchase from, and the service was great, very friendly, they helped me with all my question's. I installed this on my 1996 Ford mustang V6 3.8L, and the HP/Performance was phenomenal, I really noticed better acceleration from 2000-5000RPM and alot meaner sounding stock exhaust. I also noticed less CAI Whine noise, which means the BBK CAI is alot better then most Cold Air Intake's( engine/exhaust ,almost sounds like 4.6L V8 mustang). "Please note", I had little trouble instaling air filter on intake tube, because fender hole for intake is way too small to fit filter(This is not the intake's fault but the fenders fault), the solution is you have to get under car and fit the air filter in fender and then insert intake tube into filter with mounting plate(Remeber to have hose clamps on intake tube and air filter. It was very easy too install the BBK Cold Air Intake for my 3.8L V6 Ford Mustang. I would recommend everyone to buy this for there mustang's because the performance is very good and you will save alot on gas mileage, because engine has more air. One more thing i installed a $50USD K&N filter for my mustang and this BBK Cold air Intake Smoked it, alot more performance, Now all i need to do is install a racing exhaust and race chip/programmer and im set. :)

    I am a huge fan of the Mustang, this includes the v6 models. I got this BBK cold air intake, cause for the price and all the reviews I seen, it seemed worth it! Well, as soon as it was installed I could feel the power. I accelerate faster, and with my dual exhaust I purchased from AM, has my v6 sounding MEAN!!! It is worth every penny!!! I suggest that anyone that don't believe me, get it for yourself and I promise you will not be let down!!!! Oh and by the way, has all the best prices, so you wont find any mustang parts anywhere else cheaper. And if you do, its probably used or homemade!!!

    Enjoy your V6

    I very enjoyed this product extremely as it gave a better throttle response and and increase in horsepower for my standard V6, however, i couldnt tell you what did the most because i installed three parts in one day, along with this, i would highly recommend the BBK throttle body, and underdrive pulleys

    Looks awesome under the hood. Adds some power to the rear also, works very well with a power aid throttle body spacer and a bbk aftermarket throttle body.

    its ok

    It looks nice and shines but I didnt feel any change in the way the car drives. Also it didnt increase the sound by much. But again I am not sure how it will hold up in the future but so far so good. The noise gets louder only if you are going faster but other wise its not that big of a deal. We will see what will happen when I get an exauhst

    I love it.

    Everything went in perfect other than the filter. I had to push and pull from under the car and hold it down to get the screws in. Was a real pain in the butt but overall it worked out perfect. Sounds good, definite performance gain, looks great. The only thing different that i didn't like was i can now hear the air sucking in from inside the car. No big deal really, you just have to get used to it.

    Pretty Good Overall

    I live in California, and with the strict CARB laws here, it was either this or the CandL cold air intake for my 98 v6. I chose this one because it came with the filter and the tube rather than just the filter. Took about half an hour to install mainly because fitting the air filter up under the fender was a bit challenging. After a couple weeks with it installed, I can say I definitely notice a difference in throttle response and all around power. The car feels like its no longer being limited or bogged down with the stock intake, and with my dual flowmaster 10's this little pony has no problem breathing. Would definitely recommend if you live in a CA and have to smog, otherwise the $80 cold air intakes should be just as good.

    Great looks

    Installed fairly simple for 96 V6. Had to get on BBK Webb site and watch video to make sure I was doing it right. Did find a video that said for my 96 that I could install air filter on tube then install thru fender wall. Did not have to crawl under car to install air filter as other video said. The only thing that did not fit perfect was the hose going to throttle body. Its made for the bigger throttle body, that is another project. After driving I have notice that the throttle respond is better then stock, and seems to idle smother. Was worth the money and time to install. Looks really nice and opened up engine compartment.
