Improves Horsepower. This SR Performance Cold Air Intake kit completely replaces the restrictive stock air box and paper filter element in your 1989-1993 5.0 mustang with a high flow filter assembly for a noticeable increase in horsepower and throttle response while filtering out harmful power robbing dust particles. This SR 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 SR Performance 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! 

Powder Coated Finish. The SR Performance Cold Air Intake not only improves horsepower and acceleration, but it also improves your mustangs under hood appearance with a striking black powdered coated finish. Now you can have the best of both worlds, performance and style.

Simple Install. The SR Performance Cold Air Intake kit is relatively easy to install with only basic hand tools needed. No extra modifications are required for the installation. See the video below for an overview of the basic installation process.

Technical Note. The Mass Airflow Housing and Sensor are not included. This kit is designed to reuse the stock unit.

What size mass air flow meters will work with this intake? When looking at mass airflow meters they talk about the different sizes anywhere from 55mm to 80mm. Is this intake comadable with the different size meters?


  • Which MAF to use depends on your setup, I went more of a street car, just fun to drive, so 70mm is the most I would need. If you got BIG plans you want to go bigger. As for fitting, if the provided rubber mounts don't fit, just hit Autozone and purchase the ones that do.

Cold air intake what is the differance between the sr cold air intake and the BBK cold air intake besides the price? I want to get one but im not sure which one to get. And will it give me better performance?


  • It is mostly the name that you are purchasing. They both are aluminum tubes, painted-polished-chromed, both 3 1/2 inch tubing, you can see there are different filters but both can be cleaned and reoiled. Both can come with the fender mount, BUT two different companies, whose name is bigger than the other.

Does this work/fit on a 2.3 motor?


  • Since this intake is designed specifically for 89-93 5.0L engines, it is not likely to provide the fit and function needed for a 2.3L engine.

    Not bad! different!

    I have been looking for a cold air intake for my mustang for a bit. Did not want the typical chrome one that most have, so i went for this one as its blacked out. for looks the product delivers, it looks great! I would like to have seen better quality rubber material in the couplers, and the intake tube that connects to the throttle body to be a 1/4 to half inch bigger to support more horsepower. but for the price of the product? you cant beat it.

    Looks good under the hood

    Wanted an intake that wasn't chrome and found this gloss black one. Really nice and matches my black 5.0. Gains are a noticeable. Hopefully when I get a tune I can get a lil more outa it. Good product tho. Took a while to put in. No instructions. But just looked at pics people posted and worked fine.

    great alternative to more expensive cold airs

    being made of aluminum this doesn't hold the heat that the chrome plated steel intakes do. this is very important for a cold air, and i definitely recommend this over many other cold airs

    Good quality product

    Fit my 92 gt pretty good. I like the black powercoat has a texture finish which prevents scratches. Power gain probably like 5-8hp. Can't beat the low prices compared to other more popular name brands, it does the same thing. Good product

    decent cai

    good kit over all clamps are a little annoying to work with and the couplers are cheap rubber powdercoat scratches easily if you have the egr equipped, the kit seems to interfere with the shocktower. didnt like the chrome bbk kit, the black look of this kit and the price drew me to it.

    Very easy to install in about 30 min. It looks nice the only thing I didnt like was the elbow coming out of the throttle body didn't line up right and it rubbed on the shock tower over all great intake for the cost

    Great product

    I liked the product in and out the box. Installation was straight forward. However, instructions for serving aircleaner were not included. Performance is about the same as a K&N or BBK setup but much better looking.

    Stack Racing Cold Air Intake

    I like the Stack Racing Cold Air Intake. Seems to function well and looks great. It was fairly easy to install, however there were no directions with it. I didn't know about the MAF relocation bracket until my tubes didn't line up. Once I figured that out, it worked out well.

    Good looks, good performance

    Looks better than the short bbk ram air i had on previous to installing this. I have a 75mm tb and spacer and the elbow was touching the strut tower, this fixed that. Performs better also. Smoothed out a few issuses i had with start up and idle. Throttle response seems to be smoother as well. Install was a bit of a pain but with a little patience and elbow grease i got it on. Is it worth the money? I'd say so. Wouldn't hesitate to buy again.

    Lack of quality control

    Ordered this for my sons birthday. He was very excited about it and couldn't wait to install it. We got the old air system off the car witch took a bit cuz the bolts we a bit rusted and wouldn't come loose. Started fitting the cold air system to the engine with the pipe from the throttle body to the mass air sensor. Pipe was too long on the throttle body side, had to measure mark and cut to get the right cut so the pipe would clear the shock tower. All in all it should have only took a half hour to install it, but ended up to be an hour and a half. Quality control of the product before shipping would have prevented this. Also no new bolts to secure heat shield to fender, something that should have been in the description. Not very happy with American Muscle! !!

    Did not fit properly

    I bought this cold air kit to replace my old one. The pipe between the mass air flow sensor and the throttle body rubs against the strut tower... A little dissapointing to say the least. I currently am using my old pipe so it does not rub. American muscle is great. This product is not.

    Great product!

    Another great product from American Muscle! The SR Performance CAI kit was exactly what I expected. I did a maf coversion on my 88 coupe and I was worried that it would not fit my 70 mm throttle body and egr plate but with some patience and adjustments, it fit perfect! And as always fast shipping. I would highly recommend this product to anyone.
