Hey guys, Mike Wilson here from AmericanMuscle.com, today I’m here with the JLT cold air intake kit, for the 96-04 Mustang GT. This kit gets rid of your factory restrictive airbox and replaces it with a fender mounted air filter, and a high flow inlet tube, which will increase the airflow to your Mustang’s engine. This will give you more horse power, increase throttle response, and give you a deep throaty engine sound, and also enhance the under hood appearance with a black finish. The JLT cold air intake kit comes with a high flow reusable air filter, the lower intake tube, the upper intake tube, heat shield, and all the hardware. But first, we’re going to make a stock dyno run so we have some basic horse power and torque numbers to work from. Stock, our 2000 GT put down 221 horse power and 260 ft/lbs of torque. We just finished our stock dyno run, so now we’re going to install our cold air intake kit which should take less than an hour’s time using simple hand tools. On 96-01 Mustangs with an intake air temperature sensor, you’ll need to drill a ¾” hole in the inlet pipe, and use the rubber grommet to install the sensor into the pipe. We suggest using a very small amount of lubricant on both the inside of the grommet, and the inside of the sensor collar, to fit it back into the pipe. Even though this is a no tune required intake, we installed one of our Bama performance 93 octane race tunes to maximize our power gains. A custom tune from Bama performance adjusts engine parameters to maximize performance, through optimized air/fuel ratio, spark advance, enhanced throttle response, and for automatics, increased shift firmness and adjustable shift points. Now let’s make another dyno run, and see what kind of horse power and torque numbers we get. With a JLT cold air intake kit, and our Bama performance tune, our car put down 244 horse power and 287 ft/lbs of torque, gaining as much as 30 horse power and 48 ft/lbs of torque throughout the curve. We installed our JLT cold air intake kit along with our Bama performance custom tune in under an hour’s time using simple hand tools, and we picked up as much as 30 horse power and 48 ft/lbs of torque throughout the curve. The kit was really easy to install and looks great under the hood.

Custom Bama Tunes specific to your vehicle. When you order a tuner, you aren't just getting a tuner - you are getting the tuner and 3 dyno-tested custom Bama tunes:
  • Street (87-93 octane) - the street tune is designed as a daily driver program that focuses in on increasing mid-range power. It does give up a few HP at higher RPMs, but that's why there is a Performance file. Automatic vehicles are further enhanced by making adjustments to the transmission's shift points and firmness.
  • Performance (87-93 octane) - The Performance program is designed to add power at 3000 RPMs and higher, focusing more on the top end horsepower and all out performance driving. Timing, fuel and throttle response settings are slightly more aggressive than the street tune. This is a great track tune but also works well for daily drivers that are looking for a little more "get up and go" than the street tune. The automatic transmission settings are the same as in the street tune.
  • Race (91 - 93 octane) - The race tune will ensure the largest increase in vehicle performance. Using the highest grade of fuel available in your area is mandatory. This file is designed for "Race only Use" as the timing, fuel, and throttle response settings are very aggressive. in fact, the adjustments are so aggressive, that we do not recommend it for daily driving as it may cause your vehicle to try to jump out from a stop and easily spin the tires. Finally, with the automatics, we implement entirely new shift points and firmness settings to further enhance the all-out performance of the vehicle.

Nitrous (91-unleaded race gas) - Our nitrous option can be added to any of our previously mentioned tune options, but only for 91-octane unleaded fuel.

Easy to load; easy to restore. Not only are the custom tunes easy to load on your vehicle, it is just as easy to restore your factory settings. When you load your custom tune on the vehicle, the tuner automatically stores your vehicle's factory settings. To return the vehicle to its factory settings, just plug the tuner back in, select the option to restore the factory settings, and you're done.
