Review & Installation Video

More Air for More Power. Your 5.0L coyote V8's stock manifold is designed to perform well at the low end, but it chokes off airflow at the top. When you want peak power, this Ford Racing Cobra Jet Intake Manifold is designed to channel more air directly into your engine with runners tuned for 7750 rpm peak power with no loss of torque.

Premium Quality. Made of a high tech, lightweight composite, this manifold will help your pony breathe better while improving underhood appearance with its modern "Ford Racing" logo.

Legendary Ford Racing Performance. When you're adding parts to your pony, trust the folks who know it best to untap hidden potential and unleash the monster under your hood. This intake manifold is featured as original equipment on the naturally aspirated version of the 2013-2014 Cobra Jet Mustang Race Car.

Required Upgrade. Installation of this Ford Racing Cobra Jet Intake Manifold requires either a GT500 Throttle Body or a Cobra Jet Throttle Body - p/n M-9926-CJ65 or M-9926-SCJ. Requires the Cobra Jet 5.0L Cold Air Intake Kit, p/n M-9603-M50CJ, to mate to the oval throttle body. Please see drop down options above.

Required GT Upgrade. Installation of the Cobra Jet Intake Manifold on your GT requires the Boss Intake Manifold Install Kit. Please note the inlet hose in this kit will not be used.

Calibration Required. To realize the full power potential that this Cobra Jet Intake Manifold has to offer, AmericanMuscle recommends a Bama custom tune with a Mustang Handheld Tuner to reprogram the vehicles computer (ECU) for proper operation.

Recommended Upgrade. To take full advantage of the higher RPM capabilities of this Cobra Jet Intake Manifold, AmericanMuscle recommends the use of a 5.0L TI-VCT High RPM Competition Pulse Ring (p/n M-12A227-CJ13) from Ford Racing.

Application. The Ford Racing Cobra Jet Intake Manifold is designed to fit the 2011-2014 GT and 2012-2013 BOSS Mustangs equipped with the coyote 5.0L 4-Valve Engine. O-ring intake gaskets are included.

Did the entire Cobra Jet build and am very satisfied with the power gain. Of course having the Ford Racing brand under your hood looks very much like it belongs.

Having Cobra jet intake throttle body cold air system installed, can you tell me just how much clearance I will have between hood and intake.

wm

  • The Ford Performance Cobra Jet Intake Manifold (11-14 5.0L) will have clearance between the hood as you can also fit the Ford Boss 302 Strut Tower Brace (05-14 GT, V6) item #53686 (www.americanmuscle.com/boss302-strut-brace-0512.html) in the engine bay.

Will this work with a 2014 f150 5.0? Does Bama make a programmer for the f150? Heard you lose low end torque?

So1necaise

  • While it has been done before, we have not tested the Cobra Jet intake manifold with any F-150 truck. Because of this, we do not have a spec sheet reference that shows the adjustments that this intake manifold causes. Also BAMA is not able to write and create tunes for the F-150's so we do not have a programmer from BAMA that can operate with the truck. We do carry tuners that can such as MPT, SCT, & Diablosport tuners to accommodate truck tunes.

I have read that I would lose the strut tower brace when installing this manifold. Yet I been seeing pictures with people using the strut tower brace with this. Which Brace are they using?

Tazmaniac

  • Hi, The Cobra Jet Intake is higher than all other manifolds and requires a custom made or modified strut tower brace for a perfect fit.

Is the boss intake manifold installation kit and competition pulse ring necessary when installing the CJ intake?

Iceman

  • The Ford Performance Cobra Jet Intake Manifold (11-14 5.0L) does not require the installation of the Ford Performance TI-VCT High RPM Competition Pulse Ring (11-14 5.0L) for use, however I highly recommend it as it will support higher RPM engine builds.

Will the cobra jet intake work with the stage 2 pro charger on my 2013 mustang gt

slow50

  • The Ford Performance Cobra Jet Intake Manifold will sit slightly different. As long as the cold side intercooler piping is changed to the correct height and the coupler for the piping to the throttle body is corrected. There should not be any other major components that need to be changed, however, small adjustments may need to be made for fitment.

    Disappointing

    My experience was that there was a up to a 10 loss in torque compared to the stock manifold with CAI, tune and long tube headers in the 3,000-5,400 rpm range (-33 lb ft @ 4,300 rpm). There was an increase above 5,400, but nothing to write home about until you get over 7,000 rpm where the hp stays high and the torque doesn't drop as fast. Now if you're drag racing or probably even road racing, the torque loss won't matter. You won't be seeing rpm's that low except when you launch or leave the pits. Since you'll be needing a tune for this, you can just raise the rev limit, pick the right rear axle ratio and shift at higher rpm. For the street, though, if you have the stock manifold don't waste your money on this or the Boss manifold . You'll gain more from a good CAI, tune and headers. They don't have the option in Driving style for what I do besides daily drive, which is SCCA Solo.

    Great look and sound

    I wouldn't expect a thrown back in your seat difference with this but it definitely Pulls harder on the top end. Ive got the twin 65mm TB and the Ford CJ CAI along with a tune from Jon Lund. With off road exhaust and an Axleback the car is an absolute animal and a blast to drive. The intake makes the engine sound much different, in a good way. Takes less than 2 hours for install and worth it. Definitely go this route over the boss manifold. Us coyote owners can't spare any lost torque.

    Bad Quality control

    Well how can I give this part a good review if i haven't been able to install it after i am missing 2 very important bolts that actially tight up the intake manifold to the motor and without those(M6x45mm) bolts i am pretty much in the air until either i find them somwhere out there or AM gets the manifold back in stock otherwise i am screwed. On the other hand i hope this manifold its awesome whenever i get to install it in the near future......hopefully.

    Instant power

    This was a great buy. I had the boss intake and decided I would see what this was about. Pretty simple swap out of intakes I would say it'd take 2 hours to get done. Came with everything needed although the change in wiring harnesses can be a pain. In the end you feel the power gain instantly. It starts to push you back in your seat around 2k. If you're debating this vs the boss intake definitely go with this one you won't have any regrets

    Picks up later in the rpm band.

    On a bama 93 octane tune with the monoblade throttle body and JLT intake. The intake sounds awesome when tapping throttle. However, gains aren't really noticeable until after 4k rpms and up. I bet with a good dyno tune or just an email tune from another reputable tuner I'll be able to squeeze a little more power out of this setup. I will say it looks friggin awesome under the hood!

    Worth EVERY $$

    Let me start off by saying that I had priced this setup for over a year, and NO one can beat American Muscle's price. Do NOT hesitate to purchase this modification, because each day that you wait, you are only cheating yourself out of good ol' quality time with the 'Stang. Install is a breeze and can be done as quickly as an afternoon (like me) with moderate mechanical knowledge. The power is there without a doubt, and the way it pulls is amazing- even past original redline. Don't wait. Don't hesitate. Buy this next mod now!

    The truth!!!

    A few tips to start, with a good set of small picks the wiring takes minutes and is just about fool proof. swapping the coolant crossover pipe, you will lose some coolant, kit does not come with throttle body to intake bolts?? WHY?? also stock ones dont work. also you need to buy the boss 302 install kit for some misc evap solenoid, also do yourself a favor buy an oil catch can from JLT for the passenger side, after about 100 miles the intake had a little oil blow by in it easy fix. I have the whole cobra set up and hooker 3 inch xpipe back with muff deletes, stock headers, my car only made 404 RWHP on the dyno with my BAMA tune....Seems a little low to me. The car ran awful at first , would stall, had no throttle response, and really bad throttle hang coming off throttle, and car would stall. I contacted BAMA great customer service btw, tried this and that with no luck, then it randomly fixed itself....? runs great now no complaints, intake whistles under light acceleration. worth the 2500 bucks, (intake,TB, CAI, tuner, install kit, initial tune)

    DO NOT HESITATE!!

    I was very indecisive about buying this for my 2012 GT but decided why not . It is hands down one of the best upgrades you can possibly do to you're mustang. The power gains are immediately noticeable and the sound difference makes it so much more throaty and the crackles and pops are off the charts. Do not wait to buy this upgrade just do it.
