Improves Horsepower. This SR Performance Cold Air Intake kit completely replaces the factory air box and restrictive paper filter element in your 1996-2004 4.6 GT mustang with a high flow filter assembly for a noticeable increase in horsepower and throttle response while filtering out destructive power robbing dust particles. This CAI pulls cooler denser air from inside the inner fender well to make more power that you can feel.

Reusable Filter. Included in this kit is a High Flow reusable air filter. So no need to go out and buy a new filter every few thousand miles. Just clean the filter, re-oil it, save money, and go!

Polished Finish. A SR Performance Cold Air Intake not only improves horsepower and acceleration, but it also improves your Mustang's under hood appearance with a striking polished aluminum finish. Now you can have the best of both worlds, performance and style.

Simple Install. SR Performance Cold Air Intake kits are relatively easy to install with basic hand tools. No extra modifications are required for the installation. See the video on the installation tab for an overview of the installation process.

  • Without knowing your vehicle and what other mods, assuming all was well when assembled etc, try cleaning your mass airflow sensor that can cause unusual idle. My favorite trick for idle problems to spray carb cleaner around vacuum lines and listen to the engine you will know you have a leak if the idle goes up a bit. Not a fix but it tells you where to start fixing. Honestly this is kind of a loaded question because there really is not enough info given in the question.

Re maping When I install the CAI, will I have to disconnect the battery so that it can remap the air to fuel ratio? Also it says I will need to buy a plug for a sensor that is only on the 6cyl models. What type of plug do I need? I just ordered it today. Thanks Don Hopkins

    Great cold air!

    I LOVE this cold air intake, its the exact thing you get when you spend 100-300 on a JLT, K&N, or BBK. I love this one so much because of the price, don't sit around and look at other intakes and think your better off with the more expensive one, or the name brands. this intake is GREAT. it was fairly simple to install, took me about 20 minutes if even that. one note though: if you have a v8 and your buying this, then your going to need some sort of a plug to fit into the hole that they use for the v6. other than that, great job American Muscle. had it about 4 days after I ordered it. First mod to my 2002 Ford Mustang GT, and certainly won't be the last!

    WOW - Great Quality & Price!

    I have looked at many other CAI kits for my 1999 GT at 3x the price, but when this one arrived I was really impressed! The polished tubes look great and the performance boost when combined with the intake spacer I bought at the same time suprised me. I would like to make a couple of installation suggestions though: (1) When installing the CAI kit its very hard to re-install the intake air temperature sensor into the rubber grommet on the new polished tubing - it will go a lot easier if you put a VERY small amount of lubricant on both the inside of the grommet and the outside of the sensor collar (BE CAREFUL TO KEEP THE SENSOR CLEAN). (2) Installation instructions say to put the air filter on through the bottom of the fender after you have put everything else together, because its too big to fit through the inner fender opening - NOT TRUE. You would have to remove the inner fender to do this - I found it was easier to assemble all the pieces of the lower tube (mass air sensor, polished tube, fender mount and air filter) and carefully snake them through the inner fender opening, and YES IT DOES FIT! Keep all your connections loose (including all the clamps) until you get everything lined up right, then tighten everything up STARTING with the fender mount bolts and you are done. ALSO - on the installation instructions for the intake spacer they say not to disconnect the EGR (exhaust gas recirculator) and to have a friend just lift up on the entire throttle body assembly and slide the spacer under it... ITS NOT GOING TO WORK! The rigid tubing attached to the EGR is much too stiff to get this procedure to work, even with help. You are better off if you just disconnect the EGR by first loosening the large compression fitting holding the rigid tubing to the EGR, then removing the two bolts holding the EGR to the plenum (careful with the gasket, save it to put back later). Personally, I removed the entire plenum and throttle body assembly and gave it a good cleaning with a spray carb & choke cleaner (you will be surprised on how much oil and dirt is in there) before I reinstalled the assembly with the new intake spacer. The intake spacer installation photos also show the entire IAC (Idle Air Control) being un-bolted and removed. YOU DONT NEED TO DO THIS - just carefully pull the rubber hose off it instead. Well, I hope my installation tips help you - you are really gonna love what these parts do for your GTs performance!

    Incredible Perfomance Mod

    installed this on my 03GT, improved the sound of the car, more throaty and a little deeper, the CAI is a great mod for acceleration and highend horsepower but if you are looking for blow away performance, hook it up to a 75mm throttle body and plenum, nothin beats hearing all that cold air suck up through the fender at the redline, just make sure to plug the hole made for the V6 sensor GT's dont have, once again thanks American Muscle for unbeatable performance, to keep us ford boys ahead of all them pesky chevys

    2004 GT CAI

    Overall, a very good value for the price. The product is better constructed than those you will find on ebay for $60, and you know it comes with all necessary parts for installation. Installation was easy, and the filter can be put in from the top, never mind going in through the fender well. Took me about 30 minutes, and a 15 of those were spent trying to get the lower pipe in place. Keep everything loose and do it this way if you're doing it by yourself, a second set of hands would decrease the struggle and allow installation through the fender. I was a bit irritated that it didn't come with a 5 cent rubber stopper or metal plug in case you don't have the IAT on your car. This would be the only improvement I would suggest. As the kit sits, it is essentially not complete for later 4.6 GT's. Using a rubber stopper is probably the best way to plug this, a little super glue to hold it in place. I would recommend the kit over more expensive kits, because it really is all you need. Spending more money would be for all looks.

    !!! MUST READ !!!!

    First of all, thanks to American Muscle for fast shipping and excellent customer service as well as care. This cold air intake is your best option for a new mod. Easy to install, adds a little performance, and dramatically increases the joy of driving your 'stang. I was able to coach my girlfriend through the install in about thirty minutes, with the only minor problem being the Air sensor not fitting exactly right. A small (1/16) "X" cut in the rubber grommet and it slid in nicely. As far as performance goes, the throttle response is much better, and maybe 1-2 horsepower more. The overall look is nice, it really cleans up the engine bay. With all being said and considered, save your money by purchasing this intake! You won't regret it.

    So Far so good

    Pretty much straight forward, will need to oil the filter before installing it, I called and asked a tech about it and was informed it came oiled but it dose not, took a little coaxing but got it all into place and looks great, so far so good.
