  • Increased Horsepower and Throttle Response.
  • Reusable High flow Air Filter.
  • Polished Aluminum Finish.
  • Simple Installation.
  • Fits 1999 to 2004 3.8L & 3.9L V6 Mustangs.
Improves Horsepower. This SR Performance Cold Air Intake kit completely replaces the stock factory air box and restrictive paper filter element in your 1999-2004 3.8 & 3.9 V6 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. This kit includes a high flow reusable air filter, so there's 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 underhood 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.

Start up and idle hiss....? On my install, this CAI puts out a loud hissing sound that varies with the A/C compressor cycling. When under load, it sounds mean, but at idle it sounds loud and unnatural. Any suggestions?

  • The hissing noise is due to the increase air demand/flow during that initial start up and especially with the added load of an A/C compressor. It in completely normal and as you said, sounds kinda mean.

CAI vs. K&N Filter Alone My car currently has a K&N filter attached to the factory intake tubing. I was wondering if I can expect any real gains from purchasing the kit to replace the intake tubing? I understand the theory behind installing smooth intake tubing, I was wondering if anyone has experience with a detectable difference between the two, or dyno results to back this up.

  • Adding a K&N filter in my experience has never produced any real significant increase in HP and TQ. You have a nice filter sure, but the stock parts are still there. If you're looking for increase and actual gain it's a safe bet to go with the whole system. Keep in mind that you wont notice a gain out of the Cold Air Intake unit until you use a tuner to tune it.

    I'm a 19 year old girl and I was able to install this by myself, so you can do it too. It does fit the 04 but I had to buy a rubber plug/stopper to cover the hole for the sensor my car doesn't have, which was at the hardware store for a whopping 22 cents (brought the pipe in to get the right size). Looks awesome under the hood and I love the sound it makes! I drive around without music sometimes just to hear it taking in all that air :)

    Great product. Easy to install following along the video, which the video is spot on. I have a 2000 3.8L and dual exhaust. I never knew how restricted the exhaust sounded until today after I put the CAI on. It just feels like the air just runs straight and clean into the engine. I get a nice little whoosh of air around the 3,000 RPM mark, kinda sounds like a turbo for a second, then it goes away. Doesn't annoy me at all, I can only hear it with the windows up anyways. I wasn't sure if I was supposed to hear it so I check all my couplings and hose clamps and they are as tight as they'll go so I take it that it's part of deal. Took me about an hour to do. That little hose end piece can be tricky, just use the screwdriver real good, but don't do it too much :) Noticed a much better throttle response and a little more power. Can't beat it for bolt on under $100. Don't think about it, just do it Stang owners.

    great mod for a low price

    alright let me say this. make sure that your mustang has hoses that aren't dryrotted, but the hose provided in the kit fixed the issue with the help of a small hardware clamp. the installation was tedious but I did it making sure the product would function right. the start up was a little louder not to much and the idle was more aggressive. it wasn't until I hit the street did the throttle and the acceleration kicked in. Thanks AM if financials weren't a worry I'd be your best customer!!

    Good Product!

    I installed this on my 2004 Mustang V6 3.9L. No problems installing, all i had to spend extra on was on a small rubber clamp hose($3) for the new hose they provided in the kit. Took about an hour or so, had brother and friends help, totally worth the money. No need to spend extra on bbk unless you want a brand.. over all, another satisfaction from american muscle.

    Purchased this kit for my 2002 mustang and with the excellent support videos had the old airbox out and the new CAI in in no time. The difference is instantly noticible. Sounds great and really boosted the response. Had a brand name on my other car and there is absolutely no need to pay more when this product is just as well made and performs just as well for a great price. Thanks AM!

    Wow, Amazing

    If you're still running your stang with the stock air filter, you are really missing out. This was the first upgrade I made to my '99 and I am nothing but happy for doing it. Way more throaty in sound, acceleration greatly increased, and looks boss under the hood. I would recommend to everyone who is looking to modify your ride. Great product. Good job American Muscle, I will be returning.

    2002 v6

    Just finished driving around after installing this CAI. While it was for sure not as easy as the pro who install it in the video makes it look, it wasn't bad. Considering I hadn't ever changed oil or a spark plug I cant complain! Definitely has a gutsier sound now and seems a bit more responsive. Great fun and well worth the minimal investment! Do it now!

    This WILL fit a 2004 3.9L V6 "A 3.9 L (237 cu in) version of the Essex V6 was introduced in 2004. It used the same 3.810 in bore diameter as the 3.8 L Essex, but had a slightly longer 3.464 in (88.0 mm) stroke.[7] It was installed in a running change on later production 2004 Mustangs (starting October 7, 2003), though overall engine output was identical. Ford marketing information says that the bore is 3.8 inches and that the displacement is 3802 cc (232 cu in).[8] The bore and stroke, however, work out to 3883 cc (237 cu in). Use of the 3.9 was short-lived in the Mustang though as it was replaced by Ford's 4.0 L Cologne OHC V6 when the Mustang was redesigned for 2005. The 3.9 continued on in the Ford Freestar minivan (successor to the Windstar) for a few years until production of the engine was discontinued in 2007." Throttle bodys for the 3.8L and 3.9L are identical with the same Ford part number

    Great product

    CAI is awesome for the price I can hear the air as I drive get sucked through the filter. However, the hose that was provided fits their product but not the nipple that fits on the valve cover. The best thing I found to fill the extra hole if your 'stang doesn't have the addt'l sensor is a 1/4" Rubber Vacuum Cap that you can pick up at Napa or O'reilly's.

    Good Product, Missing an Important Part

    My car: 2002 V6 Mustang, Stock except Cold air intake and Magnaflow Catback exhaust. I want to complain about this product before I compliment it. Firstly, no where on this website did American Muscle think it was important enough to mention that one might want to check and see if their car actually has an air temperature sensor on their car. Why is this a problem? Because there's a hole in this product's piping where you're supposed to plug in the air temperature sensor, and if your car is like mine and doesn't have one, then you have to find a way to plug this hole or unfiltered air can make its way into your engine and that's not good. Not a huge deal because I just went to Lowe's and got a rubber cork, removed the rubber piece that comes with the kit, and used the cork to seal off this hole. This part cost me 99 cents, so why they couldn't include it in the kit, just in case, is questionable. That said, when I called American Muscle about the problem, they noted that a lot of people have this issue and they plug it with one thing or another. Well, why not put a notice on the website? Not a huge deal, but this did keep me from giving the product a 5 star rating. Just a little notice on the website would have saved me a huge headache when I installed the kit today. My advice to people looking to buy this product: check and see if you have an air temperature sensor. The easiest way to do this is to look on your intake assembly and see if there are two electrical cables running to the assembly. Each sensor requires its own cables, so if you only see one then plan on making a trip to a hardware store to buy a rubber plug. The good? I noticed that the throttle is a little more responsive. It's not a huge difference, but the car seems to get a little more low end power. My favorite part about the new intake is the sound. You won't really hear it until about 2000 rpm or more, but there's a audible rumble coming from under the hood that I didn't hear before. Watch the installation video, and at the end it shows you exactly what to expect. Decent product, and aside from that relatively minor issue, I'm happy.
