Review & Installation Video

Review & Install Video

What's going on, guys? I'm Alex from americanmuscle.com, and today, I'm bringing you my quick review and breakdown of the SR Performance cold air intake for the year 2011 through 2014 Mustang GT. So in this video, I'm gonna talk about who this kit might appeal to, the construction and materials that went into this, the kind of power that you should be expecting to pick up, what you should expect to be spending. And then a little bit later, we're gonna take a very quick look at the installation where I'm gonna be giving this a very easy one out of three wrenches in the difficulty meter and about an hour to get this on to your Mustang. And I'll have a little bit more on that for you later. So this cold air intake kit that I have here in front of you today is going to be a perfect starter mod for any 2011 through 2014 Mustang GT owner that's looking to ditch their factory airbox, which we know is a little bit on the restrictive side, and give you a marginal bump in terms of throttle response, horsepower, and torque, all while cleaning up your engine bay with a very budget-minded kit. So first and foremost, one of the best aspects about this cold air intake kit is gonna the fact that this is not going to require a custom tune or a handheld tuner. So for the guys out there that don't necessarily wanna buy that, this is gonna be a perfect option for you. I do wanna add that if you were to pair this with a handheld tuner or a custom tune, the gains are gonna be that much better as they'll essentially be working hand-to-hand together. But you should expect to be picking up a little bit of horsepower, torque, and throttle response and, even in some instances, improve your fuel consumption. But it is really gonna depend on how you're driving your car. Now, I do wanna throw it out there as well that this kit is only gonna really throw out some single-digit gains. And, again, if you're looking to really maximize the amount of power that your Coyote can put out, it's definitely a good idea to pair this with a tuner. So this very budget-minded kit is gonna come with everything you see here [inaudible 00:01:48] table. That's gonna range from the heat shield, the intake tube, the filter, as well as the clamps, and all the necessary hardware you're gonna need to get this on to your Mustang, as well as a set of pretty detailed instructions which aren't gonna leave you high and dry when it comes time to get this installed. Now, additionally, I do wanna call out that this filter is gonna be re-washable and reusable, which is a great aspect about this in comparison to some of the other kits out there. But when it comes time, and this is a little bit on the dirty side, simply take it out of the car, give it a bath, throw it back in, and you're good to go. So taking a quick look at the construction and materials of this kit, primarily, what I'm gonna be focusing on here is gonna be the intake tube, which is gonna be manufactured out of aluminum and then finished off in a pretty trick black finish. Now, I do wanna call out there that with most if not all intake kits, no matter the car, if you're running a metal-style intake kit, it's typically not gonna yield that high of gains as when metal heats up and cools down, it's gonna contract and expand. Now, in comparison to a plastic or a roto-molded style construction, you're gonna gain a little bit higher numbers. But, it's gonna be negligible. And at the end of the day, with a 400-horsepower car, you're really not gonna notice it that much. But, again, if you were to pair either style cold air intake kit with a handheld tuner, the gains will be that much more maximized. Now, additionally, like I did say previously, the filter that's gonna come with this kit is gonna be re-washable and reusable. So once 5,000, 10,000 miles comes along or if you're just inspecting it and you see it's a little bit dirty, simply take it off or move it from the coupler in the intake tube, give it a bath, re-oil it, throw it back in, and you're good to go. So in terms of the pricing here, guys, you should expect to be spending only about 230 bucks for this kit. And in my opinion, it's definitely gonna be towards the bottom of the price range in terms of a cold air intake kit for the '11 through '14 GT. Now, this is definitely going to be a budget-friendly or a budget-minded kit for somebody out there that doesn't wanna burn a hole in their pocket, that's looking to pick up a couple horsepower, improve their throttle response as well as torque, and, again, even in some instances, improve your fuel consumption. However, with a 400-horsepower Mustang GT, it's gonna be a little bit on the tough side, not to put your foot into it, after installing a part like this, which is going to give you a little bit more horsepower. So in comparison to some of other brands out there, it's honestly gonna come down to what you're looking to spend and the look that you're after here. So most, if not all, the kits that we do have on the website are gonna be manufactured out of an ABS style plastic or a roto-molded construction, which, again, is going to yield slightly higher numbers. But, it's gonna be marginal here. With a 400-horsepower car, it's gonna be tough to pick how much horsepower you're actually getting. And, again, if you're really looking for the maximum amount of horsepower to get out of your Coyote, I would definitely suggest pairing this with a handheld tuner or a custom tune, as they're gonna work hand-in-hand together to give you the best bang for your buck. So switching gears to the installation portion of the video, just like I had said in the beginning, you're gonna be looking at a very simple one out of three wrenches in the difficulty meter and about an hour and change to get this onto your car. Now, looking ahead, some things that I'm gonna make sure to have on hand will be a full socket set, a couple screwdrivers, a torque spit, a six-pack of beer, a little bit of patience before you got this on your car. I do wanna add that this is gonna be a very quick glance at what's gonna be needed to get this installed, and a couple steps might be missing here. But SR is gonna have some incredibly detailed install instructions that will come with this kit. And you're really not looking at rocket science here. So at a quick glance, here's what you're gonna be looking at. You're gonna need to start by pulling your negative battery cable. You need to pull your rad cover and then pull your engine cover, disconnect your MAF and then all of the intake tubing, and then essentially swap it back with this unit here. Now, again, while I know it's easier said than done, and this is a very quick glance at what's necessitated here, you're really looking at a simple one out of three wrenches and about an hour and change before you're making some noise. So just to wrap things up here, some final thoughts. If you're the 2011 through 2014 Coyote owner and you're looking to get into an incredibly budget-friendly kit that's not only gonna clean up your engine bay, but give you a little bit of horsepower, torque, as well as throttle response, this is gonna be the perfect condition for you. So that's my quick review and breakdown for the SR Performance cold air intake kit fitting your 2011 through 2014 Mustang GT, available right here at americanmuscle.com.

  • Hello! You can expect to see a gain of up to 10-15 horsepower with this intake and a tune. However this intake does not require a tune to function properly.

    Good product!

    The product is good but they gave me one less coupler. The picture shows two but they gave me one. I had to reorder that part. Once I got in it worked just fine. Just check if you have all the parts before installing.

    I've been researching cold air intakes for a little while, and when this one went on sale, I HAD to pull the trigger. It was definitely the right decision. After installation (less than 1 hour) I noticed a crisper sound and great throttle response! The reviews were accurate for the most part. Hardest part was removing the factory intake tube, but other than that, smooth sailing! Definitely reccomend!!

    Just got this installed today and coupled with my axleback pype-bomb it makes a crisper louder muscle car sound. The throttle response was definitely improved as I could see a Camaro quickly disappearing in my rear view mirror.

    Cheap

    When I got this product I ended up putting over two hous into installation because the instructions were so bad, only to find out that they had shorted me a rubber coupler and I couldn't put it together anyway. I had to get them to send me what should have come with it anyway and that took additional shipping days. Also the fit of the heat shield in the engine is awful, it does not contour to my 2014 gt at all and I ended up forcing it into place. SKIP this product and get something higher end, you get what you pay for.

    Amazing product

    I had researched all the cai for a long time and i set my mind on this because of the price and i could expect the gains to be the same as a more expensive one. And from what i have found out if you pair this up with a tume from bama performance it shows very similar gains as the airaid cai and it is about $100 cheaper so i would say get this. Also you dont have to worry about the water issue some of them have with the 2013 hoods becuase i have sprayed it down, sat in rain, and drove in rain and have had zero problems with water gettin on or in my intake

    Go with a different brand for sure

    It took me a little longer that hour and half to install. The instructions included are awful. I had to YouTube other brand installations to get an idea on how to take stuff apart. For a split second I thought they sent me the wrong intake, I had to pretty much force the filter to fit in the corner. I should of gone with the Roush intake instead.

    Great Choice

    So I bought the SR intake and boy was I impressed at the throttle response after installation. Car seems to have a lot more get up and go for sure, more power with a tune added of course but still noticeable without. Overall, this was a great purchase for a reasonable price and great shipping as usual from AM.
