Review & Installation Video

Review & Install Video

Hey everyone I’m Justin with and I’m taking a look at this polished aluminum cold air intake kit for all 99-04 V6 Mustangs. We’re going to show you what kind of horsepower and torque numbers you can expect, when using this very budget friendly intake. This kit replaces your somewhat restrictive factory airbox with everything you see here, including the washable high flow filter, polished aluminum intake tube, heat shield, and all necessary hardware. Besides giving you a nice boost in power and sound, this kit is sure to give you a nice visual improvement under the hood as well, thanks to that polished aluminum finish. Cooler, denser air results in more horsepower, that’s a fact. With that in mind this kit puts your filter right in your fender well, giving you maximum cool air, especially when combined with the supplied heat shield. We want to see what kind of improvements this kit is going to make on our 2000 V6 back there, but before we go bolting everything up we want to get a baseline number down first, to see what we’re working with. Our automatic V6 put down a less than exciting 146 horsepower, and 170 ft/lbs of torque, in stock form, now we’re going to install our polished cold air intake system, which should only take about an hour, thanks to the fact that this kit includes all hardware needed for install. The only exception is for you folks out there whose car isn’t equipped with an air temperature sensor, located right here. If you’re one of those few, don’t worry, simply go to your local hardware store, pick up a rubber plug that shouldn’t cost you more than a buck or two, and plug the hole, problem solved. In addition to installing our cold air intake, we’re also going to upload our custom 93 octane Bama tune, and maximize our gains. This is going to optimize our spark timing, perfect those air/fuel ratios, and give you drastically improved throttle response. Alright, so now the moment of truth, with our intake installed and our Bama tune uploaded, let’s turn the rollers one more time and see the improvements this intake made on our V6. The numbers are in and we’re very happy with the results. Our polished cold air intake equipped V6 put down a total of 164 horsepower, and 194 ft/lbs of torque, making for an impressive peak gain of 18 horsepower over our baseline numbers. We were also able to pick up some very nice power throughout the curve as well, making 19 horsepower, and 27 ft/lbs of torque respectively. Not only do we pick up more horsepower and torque with this intake, but we improved our under the hood appearance and added a nice little growl to the motor as well. So even though this intake doesn’t have a big brand name stamped all over it, it certainly held up its end of the bargain and made some solid gains.

Improves Horsepower. This SR Performance Cold Air Intake kit completely replaces the stock air box and restrictive paper filter element in your 1999-2004 3.8L & 3.9L 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 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.

does it really give you 19 rwhp or is that only with a tune?


  • 19 HP without a tune probably won't happen. Maybe you could get 10 HP with perfect conditions.

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.

Gas?? how much does this intake effect your gas milage? Highway and streets.


  • Letting a motor breath better almost always offers better fuel economey and performance, so power when you need it, and econemey when your running the freeway at a stable lower RPM, every car varries and depends on other mods done so wanting to know numbers is a bit tough for anyone to ansewer you?, serch the blogs and dyno results they offer some Insight and education to the principles of air to fuel ratios, but 10 % better , from experience , I would say is a fair estimate , CAI is the place to start, then exhasut manifold and pipes ect, it further allows the engine to run cooler, so leass heat, less wear , less friction, less fuel Hope this helps you DWRECK Perkins.

    This intake is awesome!!

    This intake fits like a glove. It takes a little effort to get the rubber connectors on snug but other than that it fits great. It also works completely fine with the stock air sensor in my mustang. I can already feel a difference in how well the engine runs and it has increased the sound slightly. Not only is the performance increase and easy installation awesome, but another awesome feature is how awesome it will look under your hood.

    Get it!

    This was a breeze to install. Although my mustang was a bit different than the one in the install video I managed to get my cold air intake installed with little frustration. The only problem I had was with the couplings because in the video I think he put them on different, backwards, when compared to mine. Anyways it's awesome and sounds great. I also didn't have one of the air sensors that you take off the old intake and plug in the spot on the second pipe so it's just an open hole. I asked a question on here to see if it affected the cai but I have not seen the question pop up in the site. All in all buy this. Easy.

    Nice addition

    This overall was an amazing product and I couldn't be happier! I've had this in for almost a year now and no problems to speak of as far as performance issues. I'm kinda sad to note that the nice chrome finish doesn't last too long and gets kind of dull as time wears on, but still works like the day i bought it! One thing i would note for all who are interested in buying this is to make sure on install to beware of not pinching off the AC line or the valve cover line, and make sure you keep the intake away from the suspension tower on the top left. I did this and although it doesn't effect power or output when your AC pump kicks on it transfers noise through the air intake and makes a "misfire" sort of noise. Easy install and amazing results, just keep note of the mistakes i made!

    Great for a V6!

    I received this product as a gift and it was an easy installment that took about an hour. It adds a bit of a V8 feel and sound to a regular V6. It is a great way to put some power into a cruiser vehicle. It was easy to install and a good way to start modding your mustang. The noise it makes simply sends shivers down my spine at startup and revs. If you have a V6 mustang and you want it to sound more like a V8 this is not only a "good idea" it is a MUST!

    More than I expected

    I received the product very timely, in fact, I received an email stating the expected arrival date was moved up by 2 full days. The package looked like it had been dropped and very mishandled by UPS. The internal components were all there and in good shape. I was surprised to find more parts than expected in the box. Upon further investigation, they were shown on the website, however these extra parts (the 16" hose and double hose clamp) are not mentioned or addressed in any install video or tutorial. I had to do a search on youtube to find a decent install video. Use the 16" hose to replace your likely cracked and old 'breather hose' that connects to the new cold air intake by the throttle body. Be sure to keep the plug that sits on the engine intake for this part, put the new hose over it. Use the double clamp to secure your reusable hi-flow filter, it must serve as a extra heat absorbing device. Otherwise great product, great MPG, and torque gains-even without the tune. I still will buy the BAMA tune to get the best gains. You can always call American Muscle with any questions also, a good point to keep in mind.

    Definitely N O T recommended.

    Had to buy a new clamp for the throttle body connection as the included one did not fit. Instructions say to stretch the original/stock tube to fit the air inlet, but you cannot stretch it three inches! The supplied plastic tubing is long enough but the diameter is too large, so you have to build up the fitting by wrapping it with vinyl tape. About five feet of tape is needed. The second air inlet on the main tube does not have a plug, and that inlet is not used on the 3.9 engine, so I had to shop and find something to glue into the hole and keep it plugged. You have to wet the rubber grommet/tube that connects to the throttle body to get it on, and no matter how many times you try, it has to stretch AND twist in order to fit in available space. The twisting reduces inner diameter and obstructs air flow, thereby eliminating any hopes for performance gain.. VERY noisy. You can easily hear the air in the aluminum tube from thirty yards away on startup, although it becomes softer when it warms up. Installation is PITA due to poor fitting and either wrong parts or more parts needed. There is no noticeable performance gain. Waste of money and time. Definitely NOT worth buying.

    2004 V6

    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 :)

    Wow for the money this product is great. The intake was very easy to install and only took me an hour and a half and im am only 14. I can't really hear much of a difference because the car already has and exhaust but I can hear the sound of rushing air.

    Great Product

    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!!

    The instructions were easy to follow and the intake went in with only a little bit of coaxing. Very happy with the result and felt an instant small power boost with a great sound. Installed this on my 2004 mustang and it worked perfectly so it's not just limited to 99-03s.

    CAI went on smoothly. Took maybe a half hour to do. I think there is a little boost in performance (from a totally stock 99 v6 mustang) but it makes the car a little bit louder accelerating. Not sure if the little boost of performance is actually there or if I'm just imagining it or not, haha. Very happy though, considering the price. Can't go wrong.

    02 mustang must read

    this is a great product, i really only noticed a lil boost in higher speeds 65 and up. but i did gain like 3mpg. the install was easy but the cuplet that connected the mas and the upper pipe was a tug of war, but just be patiant. then my mustang only had one plug and this kit didnt come with the plug, so i improvised and went to autozone and bought a small little filter thinned out the plastic and replaced it with the plastic were the plug or other connecter is supposed to go.

    for just over 70 bucks you get a fully functional cai. super easy install although i had to customise a bit for my throttle body spacer. gives the car a bit more power, slightly better sound at the pipes and an intimidating whoosh at quarter throttle, serious bang for your buck. i used my old pcv port upside down with a screw in it and filled the hole with silcone to block the extra hole. great shipping and way more then good enough instructions. will be buying from this site again.
