Good for entertainment/performance, not better fuel economy

Does the check engine light stay on forever, or does go away?

  • You need a tuner to recalibrate the PCM to make up for the increased air flow. Once you use a tuner on it the light will go out after you clear the codes it has set. Also if you do not recalibrate the PCM with a tuner you could cause damage to your engine.

  • At the current time, the replacement filter is not available through AmericanMuscle. However, you can purchase the replacement filter, M-9601-B, directly through Ford Racing. Hope this helps!

Does this require 91 octane? I understand that this CAI will require a retune, but will I still be able to use 87 octane?

    Ford Racing Cold Air Intake

    July 03, 2011

    Very good product, easy installation just be careful Mass Air Flow Sensor and you should be fine. Installed in about 45 mins, after about a day the check engine light did come on, but no problems have occured to date (4 mnths later). Now to performance, without tuning the engine there still is a nice gain, throttle response has improved greatly in the lower rpms and slightly in the higher as far as MPG's i averaged about 18mpg in the city (and i do have a lead foot) and an awsome 24mpg on my road trip to new mexico. The stock exhaust does sound meaner now too and as you come off the line you can hear the intake bringing in the air along with the tires screetching if you steep on it hard enough. Overall excellent buy, would defenetly recommend for any V6 owner looking to get more out of his car and personally i love the way the Ford Racing logo looks under the hood with the big intake

    If your looking to make back the cost of the cai and the required tuner, by savings on fuel economy don't buy this. But if you want better sound and acceleration from your mustang this will definitely help! The cai and custom tune do increase your fuel economy, but not enough for you to ever feasibly make back the money you spend on them. I have a 2006 v6

    Ford Racing CAI for 4-L V-6

    October 14, 2010

    I've had the CAI installed for about 6 weeks. Likes: Easy to install, it appears the stock intake tube is the same as the new one with the CAI, but I did use the new one. Looks like factory, being from Ford, guess it would. Fitment was good, all hoses, lines, connectors, lined up perfectly. I decided on this unit, because the insulation under the hood is designed for this unit. The top edge of the air box fits in a groove on the bottom of the hood insulation. This makes a near perfect fit and insures that intake air is coming from the grille area, not from the hot engine compartment. Dislikes: Only real disappointment is the air filter is not cleanable/reusable. It's supposed to be replaced. Would still buy this unit, as the positives outweighed this one negative.

    Ford Racing Cold Air Intake

    October 14, 2010

    This item was very easy to install. It came with instructions but it was pretty self explanatory when you looked at how it hooked up. It mounts in place of your old air box and the ‘tube' end connects to your throttle body. Be patient when disconnecting/reconnecting your vacuum line and careful when you do the same with your MAFS. It's easy to do, but you don't want to damage those parts. Installation took about 20 minutes. Once installed, the part looks amazing and it sounds awesome sucking in loads of air for your motor. Combined with a custom tune from your SCT tuner, you can feel in the seat of your pants when hitting the throttle. More air + tune = more ponies. There is a very noticeable increase in power. This is a great first step in building a respectable V-6 Mustang.

    worth the money

    May 01, 2012

    The only disappointment with this was Ford Racing couldn't be bothered to include instructions. I still would have bought it though. It was a fast easy install and with the Bama tune WOW! What a difference.

    Ford Racing CAI

    March 31, 2011

    Really happy with the Ford CAI, got it withe the SCT combo package. Install was easy, took about a half hour. Stuck with the Ford CAI, as the bottom of the hood insulation has a groove in it where the top of the CAI surround fits. This really blocks out hot engine air and funnels in cold air from the grille area. Great product from a great retailer.

    One Great Intake

    October 14, 2010

    For anyone that wants a great looking and slightly less expensive intake, this is for you! The fit and finish of the product is very nice and the performance improvement when combined with a tune is impressive. My only concern with this intake is that it did not come with installation instruction. Its easy enough to figure out but, a bit of guidance would be nice. All in all, a great product!

    Easy to install. Make sure you have correct tools to remove the O2 sensor. I like the factory OEM design as well. It gives the engine a better performance appearance. Make sure you tune the vehicle or your engine will go into stupid mode.
