Review & Installation Video

Hey Justin from AmericanMuscle.com here, taking a closer look at these very budget friendly intakes from SR Performance, available in black or polished fitting all 96-04 Mustang GTs. This kit completely replaces the power robbing factory airbox in your GT

Improves Horsepower. This SR Performance Cold Air Intake kit completely replaces the restrictive factory air box and 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 all while still filtering out harmful power robbing dust particles. This Cold Air Intake 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 there is 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!

Powdered Coated Finish. The SR Performance Cold Air Intake will not only improve horsepower and acceleration, but it will also improve your Mustang's under hood appearance with a stealthy matte black powder 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 a basic overview of the installation process.

Application. This SR Performance Cold Air Intake System is specifically designed to fit the 1996 to 2004 GT  Mustangs equipped with the 4.6L engine and does not require re-tuning the vehicles computer for operation. Does not fit Bullitt models.

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

  • Very much so. Had one in before I got this intake and you instantly see a huge difference in acceleration and horsepower gains and a lot deeper of an exhaust sound.

How do I tell if this intake is CA smog compliant?

yee

  • The SR Performance Black Cold Air Intake (96-04 GT) would have a CARB sticker on it that would tell you if the item was legal for street use in the state of California. To see which items are restricted and approved, please contact your state's DMV for further information.

What is this made of? Because I wouldn't want this to rust after three years like the BBK CAI does.

Adam

  • The SR Performance Black Cold Air Intake is wrinkle coated aluminum. It has a powder coating that should prevent rust as long as it up kept.

    Cali Legal-NOT!

    I put this on my 99 GT/Auto with a Bama tuner and I gotta tell ya, I was impressed, the install was a little tuff until i realized you have to stuff the filter elbow deep into the fender well, then it a ll made sense. But worth every bit of the money invested. The only draw back is I didn't realize and AM don't tell you if you don't ask (wich i didn't until after I had it on the car) IT IS NOT CALIFORNIA LEGAL! And because I've installed it, it's mine now. Oh well, good thing I kept the stock air box cause this CAI is worth the effort of changing it out next smog check.

    I bought this one because I wanted a black one. The cai set up is easy to install added a nice look to the engine bay. The one thing I did not like about it was it had a hole and grommet for an air sensor that where for pre 2002 mustangs. Which I had to find a way to plug it.

    I can feel the difference

    Shipped in two days. Went in easily enough. Only two issues were that I had to use one of my own hoses to make it fit, and it came a little different than displayed. In the display it has it coming out of the throttle body and curving in to the panel so that the filter sits horizontally. However, the one I received had an extra 90 degree welded on, so rather than sitting horizontally, my filter is sitting vertically in my fender. Had to use a pneumatic drill on the clamp to make sure it stayed. Other than that it works great. Can feel the difference in horsepower and throttle response, especially in the higher rpms.

    Good deal

    I chose this CAI because it has the filter in the fender, its not chrome, and the price was tough to beat. Delivery was typical for American Muscle; packaged so it didn't get damaged in shipping and fast--in other words, excellent. Installation was straight forward with the exception of some slight clearance problems with my strut tower brace. This caused a bit of adjusting and making a rubber pad to protect and quiet the spot where the intake tube and the brace contacted each other. The paint finish on the CAI looks good but is very poor quality. Even the hose clamps scratched the finish and the slightest contact with anything scratche the paint off. I'll be repainting mine with better paint or have it powder coated for looks and durability. All-in-all, I would say this is a good product.

    Pretty Good deal

    Decent product. I don't see any major downside between this CAI and the other ones from BBk and the like. Paint does scratch easily so be careful when installing it. I had to reuse one of my old hose clamps so don't throw them away until the job is done.

    Stack Racing CAI

    I went with this CAI because i liked the idea of taking the air from outside the engine compartment. I had a K&N CAI on my old Mustang and perfomance wise they are definitly the same. Install was a little trickier than i thought it would be but still only took 45min. Also the air filter is smaller than i thought it would be so i will probably try to find a larger one that will still fit into the wheel well. This is an excellent product none the less and would put it on any future mustang. P.S. from 6000-6500 RPM it absolutely WAILS like a banshee.

    Decent fit, adds some oomph

    For the money, this is a great kit. Added a little more pop off the line, and the fit was pretty good. I have the IAT sensor integrated with the MAF, so I had to plug off the extra hole in the intake with a rubber grommet from a local hardware store.

    Works as designed

    I bought this in black and had it painted red fire to match my body color. Quality is good. Filter looks a bit cheap but for the price I am happy. Be careful if you have a later model stang with the intake air temp sensor bult into the mass air flow sensor. You will need to find something to plug the hole in the intake tube.

    It was one flaw

    It is ok, don't expect power at the seat. Sounds good, and perhaps it is definitively better than stock but it does have a flaw. The second bend which goes downward into the fender was welded on afterwards. If you look inside (wish I did originally) you can tell that there is huge bumps all around where the weld was made. This has to mess with the air flow and proper readings for tuners. I am going to see if I can smooth that out somehow, but being that it is dirt cheap, this could be overlooked and fixed on your own.

    I work in a shop for a living, and installation time was around 30 minutes. Anchor studs were a little aggravating but once everything was in, the fit was perfect. Also noticed a sound difference from the engine bay! Definitely recommend this CAI.

    Looks good.

    I installed this intake with a little finesse. Managed to scuff some paint off the pipe where it enters the fender, so be careful during install. It certainly makes a lot more noise from the front of the car than before, but I didn't notice much of a performance difference. My car is black, and I was glad to find an intake in black for an affordable price. It looks good.
