Needed for BBK CAI Install. Do you want to add a BBK Cold Air Intake to your 1986-1988 5.0 Mustang, but don't have the stock MAF used on later 5.0 mustangs for the kit to be installed correctly? Well AmericanMuscle now has the BBK 5.0L Speed Density CAI Adapter Kit for the 1986-1988 Ford Mustangs. This Speed Density CAI Adapter Kit from BBK will fill the space of the missing mass air meter allowing for the proper installation of the BBK Cold Air Intake (part# 1557) and BBK Ram Air Intake (part# 1556) on a the 1986-1988 5.0L Mustang.

Chrome Finish. Even though this is a required part for the 1986-1988 mustangs there is no reason why it can't look good too. So BBK finished this Speed Density Adapter in a bright chrome finish to match their 86-93 Cold Air Intake for a seamless look under the hood of your beast.

Fitment. This BBK 5.0L Speed Density CAI Adapter Kit is designed to allow you to install the 1986-1993 5.0 V8 BBK Cold Air Intake and Ram Air Intake on to a 1986-1988 5.0 Mustang that does not have the factory MAF.

Nice clean finish and comes with a support mount. *Side note* I literally received this and the intake within less than 24Hrs of ordering. That's how fast A.M. is.

    Great product to complete CAI

    If you are like me and your foxbody isn't equipped with a MAF, then this is the piece you need to complete your CAI. Shipping was fast and install was easy. Just wish it also was available in black. The CAI on my Fox is black and this piece is chrome but still looks awesome under the hood. Great product Thanks AM.

    This product was an excellent purchase. It is high quality with a great finish and fits perfectly with the non BBK cold air intake system I purchased with it. I would highly recommend this product.

    BBK speed density adapter

    I ordered the BBK speed density adapter along with their cold air system for my 93 Mustang Fox body using the 5.080 liter out of a Lincoln Mark 7 with the computer I found it challenging to get everything in tune with this car after installing vertical door system along with the BBK speed density adapter this car really woke up nicely Parts came very quickly no damage boxes good quality and appearance and went together very nice I would recommend it for anybody running a speed density system I'll give it 5 stars and a big thumbs up

    Looks good and does exactly what it's suppose to.

    Haven't pulled the car out since some upgrades but it looks beautiful under the hood and gives it a better growl when I start it. Would definitely recommend.

    Perfect Fit

    If you are running a speed density application this is the perfect adapter for your BBK cold air intake. Install is super easy and quality product as expected. Delivery time is always amazing with American Muscle.

    Cold air intake modification

    By far and away the easiest horsepower gain I've ever installed. I picked up 14 horsepower on the dyno with this change it. Great price for the gain.

    Performs well and really dresses up the engine.

    When I ordered the CAI adapter, I was expecting the set-up shown in the catalog with the sensor attached. When I received it, I thought a mistake had been made by the shipping department. But when I went on line and saw after installation photos of other mustang owners, I was relieved. The installation was simple and it looks great.

    BBK Speed Density CAI Adapter

    I thought that I was going to have to do a MAF conversion prior to finding this gem. Very easy to install onto the CAI of your choice. It is a little pricey, but it looks great and does exactly what it says. Definitely recommend this product.

    Does the trick

    It's a pretty straightforward installation. The piece just bridges the gab between the intake tubes in place of the MAF on newer 5.0's.
