Improves Horsepower. The BBK Cold Air Intake kit completely replaces your 1996-2004 GT mustangs restrictive stock air box and paper filter element with a high flow BBK filter assembly for a noticeable increase in horsepower and acceleration while providing filtration of harmful power robbing dust particles. The BBK CAI pulls cooler denser air from inside the fender well to make more power that you can feel.

Reusable Filter. BBK designed the high flow cotton air filter to be reusable. So no need to go out and buy a new filter every few thousand miles. Just clean the filter, re-oil it, save money, and go!

Bright Chrome Finish. The BBK CAI not only improves your pony's horsepower and acceleration, but improves your mustangs under hood appearance with a strikingly beautiful chrome finish. You'll be sure to attract attention at all the car shows with this jewel under the hood.

Simple Install. The BBK Cold Air Intake kit is designed to install easily with basic hand tools. No extra modifications or special tools are required for the installation. See the convenient video below for an overview of the installation process.

im leaning towards getting this intake but i wont this rust after after awhile and if you live in a area with rain the filter is inside the fenderwel which is low to the ground and can suck up the rain

kevgjo Year: 2000 Model: GT

  • Since it is chromed, you shouldn't see any rusting, so don't worry about that. As far as the rain concern goes, it's not the first time I've heard that one. I live in Memphis, TN where we get a lot of rain at a time also. It doesn't suck in air strong enough to pull rain drops up. The only time you should see it suck in water would be if you tried to drive through a flooded area that had high enough water that it made contact with the filter. It's high enough up though that this scenario would have already flooded the interior of the car. In the end, it's not realy an issue that should merrit any concern. I'm happy I bought mine. I can promise you, you'll love yours when you get them!

After Installation Is It Suppose To Make Noise? Bought It Installed It, Works Great But I've Been hearing A Whistling Noise Every time I Step on The Gas, It Doesn't Do It When In Park, But Only On Drive, and It Only Started Making That Noise After I Installed It, I Checked The Only Two Hoses That Are Connected To It And They Are Tight And Nothing Is Loose??? What Is It?

lvIkTuhl Year: 1997 Model: GT

  • What you're hearing is perfectly normal. The whistling type sound you are hearing is the increased ammount of airflow being pulled through the filter. That's why you don't hear it at idle or low RPMs, but it is noticable at high RPM. The only time you hear it is when the engine is sucking air at high volumes. This is a good thing to hear since it means that your engine is getting the air it needs instead of suffocating and producing less horsepower. I personaly love hearing it at the top end of each gear!

What's the clicking noise? Just installed this and like the other guy hearing a whistling noise mine is more clicking. Double checked everything and all is tight and secure. Cant figure out where is coming from. Only happens when I'm giving her throttle. Fine at idle and fine just cruising. Almost sounds like something is rattling. IDK. Any idea would help. Thanks much!!

  • Did you make sure that the tube is clear and everything is bolted down correctly to the car? While the Cold Air Intake may be secured, it sounds like the rattle is coming from the vibrations of you accelerating. Be sure to check the proximity of items near the Intake and that all of your bots to your frame are secure. Keep in mind that it might not be the intake at all. Hope that helps.

    Definitely worth the money! Very noticeable increase in throttle response and the exhaust sounds a little healthier too. As for performance, it is a noticeable increase, but i'm not sure exactly how much, because i can't hook up with my winter tires. Most definitely go with BBK- great quality intake with everything i needed (some of the cheaper intakes don't have all the pieces) Install was also very easy

    keepin it simple

    this was my first purchase from AM and the first upgrade to my stang. everything was simple and i honestly had 0 experience with car parts. the video for the install was awesome even tho it was geared more towards the V6 but it was a simple translation. the only thing i had to do was go to the nearest Auto Zone and get a piece of heater hose a bit wider than the one that came with the kit. and with a couple of hose clamps i was done. for a great price and a noticeable difference in sound i would recommend this product.

    Worth It

    Installation took 30 minutes only because i had to remove my old crappy non smog legal intake and the bolts were on there tight. You can really hear the air being sucked in and i notice a slight power gain. Keep in mind i already had a CAI but i only had to buy a new one to pass smog dam California haha. Looks clean & shines, power gains, sounds cool and ITS WORTH it for the money. I wanted the JLT but seem to expensive and my car is stock so i wouldn't benefit from a 4 inch width pipe. I also called AM support and they answered my questions regarding it being smog legal. Thanks AM.

    After installation test

    Installation one person job. Can be done with basic tools no floor jack needed . Install air filter under front side of car front inner fender shield near headlight and screw driver only needed or socket. Test showed more power lower end to about 4k RPM much better then stock unit with stock throttle body . Tested on 1996 GT 4.6L V8 with flowmasters cat back one hour to install time. One thing need instructions how to clean filiter none found. Would buy product again.

    Awesome Product

    Thought the BBK cold air was a bad choice at first due to my lack in ability to read the fine print at the bottom of the instructions that states the filter must come up through the fender in order to fit, can't just go through the engine bay. After reading the instructions instead of trying to outsmart it the cold air was on in no time. Took about 30 minutes if you know what your doing. Started it up and it sure seemed to make a different exhaust tone, nice and deep. I would recommend purchasing an oil recharge/cleaning kit to ensure true cold air. Thanks AM for another great purchase

    This intake seems to really help my car out. I have noticed that it keeps my engine at a cooler constant temperature, and its makes my car perform A LOT better! It\'s an easy install, took about 20-30 minutes, and I didn\'t even have to take the fender off to mount the air filter, I just lifted the car up on jack stands. GREAT BUY!

    Pain in the butt. did not fit well.

    So i got it CAI to replace a cheap no name one that they sell on here and came on my car. The only positive thing that I can say about it is that it looks nice. this thing did not feel like it was made for my car. it was a pain to get the filter attached to the pipe. This is my second BBK product and looking back at how hard to install and how bad the last product fit, I don't think i will buy BBK again. There are much better products out there.
