Description
Maximum Airflow. A C&L Performance Cold Air Intake kit will completely replace your SVT Cobra's restrictive stock 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 80mm MAF Housing. This C&L Performance cold air intake kit includes a brand new cast aluminum 80mm MAF housing that is already calibrated for use with the stock factory 24lb 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. The engineers at C&L really did their homework to improve your pony's power using the stock factory tune.

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.

Application. This C&L Performance Cold Air Intake System is specifically designed for use on 1996 to 1998 SVT Cobra Mustangs equipped with the DOHC 4-valve 4.6L modular V8 engine.

Great fitment and high quality!

Bought this w/ the SCT tuner for 96 Cobra, and found the part to be made of very high quality material. The intake feels sturdy in the car and looks great (matches the Cobra's engine perfectly). Received

    Good Product

    Had this on my '96 Cobra before I went supercharged. Works extremely well, and it's a high-quality kit. Only issue I ever had with it was that it would rub the stock strut tower brace when I autocrossed, but that was due to engine movement (motor mounts) and not this intake. Only reason I'm not using it anymore is because it won't clear the Kenne Bell FMU, which mounts to the passenger side fender.

    Good Looking CAI for your Cobra

    I recently picked up a Cobra and the factory air inlet and filter were falling apart. I figured it would be a good time to upgrade to a CAI. I chose the C&L intake for its ability to fit beneath the strut tower brace. Being the car is a convertible, I did not want to sacrifice the brace for one of the larger inlet tubes. Installs in about an hour. I appreciated C&L including the tamper proof torx bit to remove and transplant the MAF sensor from the factory housing. Picked up a few horsepower, smoothed out the lower end of the power band and looks and fits good all around.

    The best air intake system on the market

    Amazing product I noticed an improvement in power from the start. Easy installation and great craftsmanship. A great looking addition to my engine compartment. Most everyone of my friends that saw it wanted one and asked me where I got it.thanks for a great innovative product. From Cobra 470 five star rating

    Alsome product

    Install was easy and fast, looks great over the stock setup. Only reason i rated the performance gain a three star is because I don't think it gives you that big of a different in hp gain unless you add other stuff like a bigger TB. Other then that It's well worth the money and looks goods in car shows and I def would recommend this one over any other cold air setup.

    Great finish

    Looks great and performs well. Intake tube really looks good. Paired up with a 93 tune and this CAI really comes to life.

    Great product!!

    I love the look and it works extremely well. Worth every penny. Only problem I came across is that the filter was a bit too long. Highly recommend this product.

    C&L Intake

    Works great, was a PITA to install. The car didn't shut off on me when I would coast in neutral; the K&N FIPK would cause my car to shut off. Very good intake, made well.

    Nice Piece-but a PITA

    A PITA to install for sure. Fit is very tight. But it is a very nice piece that looks sharp and the performance improvement is very obvious above 4000RPM. Price is high but you get what you pay for. 98 Cobra Conv.
