Review & Install Video

Maximum Airflow. A C&L Performance "Street" Cold Air Intake kit will completely replace your GT Mustang's restrictive factory air box and paper filter element with a high flow filter assembly to maximize airflow for a noticeable increase in horsepower, torque and performance.

Pre-calibrate 83mm MAF Housing. This C&L Performance cold air intake kit includes a brand new cast aluminum 83mm MAF housing that is already calibrated for use with the factory fuel injectors, MAF sensor not included.

Made in the USA. Proudly made in the USA from the highest quality materials available, this C&L Performance Cold Air Intake has been extensively flow bench tested and engineered to out perform the competition.

No Tune Required. Unlike other Cold Air Intakes on the market, the C&L CAI does not require a computer re-tune when installed with the included "no tune option" calibration insert tube. If the calibration insert tube is not installed a new tune will be required for operation.  In that case AmericanMuscle recommends a custom Bama tune with a Mustang Handheld Tuner to reprogram the vehicles computer (ECU) for operation.

Rechargeable High Flow Filter. Included with your C&L Cold Air Kit is a high-flow, reusable, rechargeable filter. That means no more spending money on OEM paper filters that waste money and horsepower. Just clean your C&L filter, re-oil it, and put it back on to save money and enjoy better performance in one shot.

Easy Installation. C&L Performance Cold Air Intake kits are designed to install with just basic hand tools. No extra modifications or special tools are required for an easy 1 hour installation.

CARB Certified. Best of all, this Mustang C&L Cold Air Intake Kit is 50-state smog legal under Carb EO# D-640. Carb Certification is for models with a production date of 5/2005 or later.

Application. This C&L Performance "Street" Cold Air Intake System is specifically designed for use on 2005 to 2009 GT Mustangs equipped with the SOHC 3-valve 4.6L modular V8 engine.

I have a 2009 Mustang GT with 4.6L, 3 valve engine and could not find a California CARB certified cold air intake ANYWHERE. You claim that your product is smog legal in all 50 states, which of course includes California. Will your C L cold air intake include a CARB medallion or decal which indicates the product is legal in California?


  • This CAI will come with a sticker that will state it is CARB legal.

i have a 2005 4.6 gt all factory. i am considering a cai probably no tuner. why use a oil fiiled or not been looking at c l . any help would be appreciated


  • Oiled filters catch the dust and particles that may be in the air better than a dry filter. A dry filter allows more airflow, but it also takes in more particles that can eventually harm the engine. Dry filters are generally used on race applications while oiled is for daily. I suggest an oiled filter for a relatively stock application. You will see a nice improvement in both throttle response and power with this cold air intake.

    Easy & Great

    I was holding off on installing this as I was planning to install a new Throttle Body, but decided to go ahead and install it. It was such an easy installation it was done in less than 45 minutes. I installed the 93 Race Tune as that is what I had been using, and had the tune set up for use without the insert as I heard the HP gains would be greater. I took the car for a ride and I was amazed at how it performed. It is a 2008 GT and it took off like a rocket and the top end was incredible. American Muscle is the best as they were very helpful. Since then I have added the Ford Racing Throttle Body, and that with the C&L makes an awesome combination with the new tune from American Muscle set for the CAI and the TB. Thank you so much American Muscle, I love blowing the doors off of BMW's, Lexus, Acura and any other Rice Burner as this car leaps off the line and just about pulls the front wheels, and it still has the stock gears. Next for me will be 4.10 gears and then down the road, new heads, now plenum and someday a super charger. American Muscle is the absolute best.... Thanks again for being a great company.

    Good Product

    I had bought this intake because I wanted to use the insert with no tune for now and tune it later. I was expecting a better increase in gas mileage (only saw maybe 1mpg better). It does pull a bit stronger at high rpms and the exhaust does sound deeper when you get on it. Will probably tune it down the road and it seems that is where most of the power comes from.

    Attractive and effective

    The C&L Street Cold Air Intake is a very attractive and effective unit. With a dyno tune I picked up 35 horsepower after using this cold air intake. Highly recommended

    its ok

    installed this product with no issues. notch out the bracket for the maf housing to retain the usage of the factory valve cover bolt. air box could have been made to fit a little better. held in by 1 bolt and a zip tie to the brake lines. really guys??????

    C&L Street kit rocks!!!

    I installed this cold air kit in about ten minutes. I definitely recommend installing the tube without the insert and using a performance tune, without the tune you will probably notice a very small gain in performance. The appearance and overall performance gain is pretty impressive. My only complaint about this kit is the use of a zip tie to secure the front of the air dam.

    Fast and easy upgrade

    A cold air intake is one of the first mods you should install. Not only does this look nice under the hood it really opens up the air intake. This CAI is very simple to instal and doesn't require any special modifications to fit. From start to finish it only took about 45 minutes to remove the old and install the new. Also, the fact that it is made from cast aluminum is a plus since the aluminum dissipates heat faster than other materials they could of used which in turn helps keep the intake air cooler. I highly recommend this intake although if u do not use the insert you will need to install a new tune since the air to fuel ratio will be off and kick out a lean code

    Great performance gain

    I've had this CAI in my 2007 GT for a couple years and have been very happy with it. I bought the CAI & Diablo tuner as a package and down loaded the C&L 93 octane tune. At about the same time I installed Ford racing axle back mufflers and Steeda under drive pulleys. The throttle response and acceleration are much improved and the aluminum finish on the CAI looks great under the hood. I just added 3.73 gears and the increased performance of these combined mods has me thinking about upgrading my brakes and tires soon. You really don't need any more power on the twisty New England roads that I drive. In my opinion going to a cai and 93 octane tune gives the best performance gain for the money spent. Do the other mods that I mentioned and you'll have a strong running S197 without spending an excessive amount of money.

    Really great product

    Only makes sense in combination with a tune. Otherwise it'd be a waste of money. I use it with the BAMA Performance tune and I drive a completely different car now. Great quality, detailed installation instructions (perhaps pictures would help, but there's tons of videos out there), easy installation.

    Great fit and finish. Also nice to have the ability to use with or without a tune. Definitely improves airflow to the engine. Currently using with the flow tube can't wait to see the improvement with a proper tune!
