Free tunes for life! Every customer that purchases a tuner is enrolled in the "Free tunes for life" program. Any time that you make additional mods to your vehicle, our team of SCT certified Bama Custom Tuners will create new tunes for you.

Custom Bama Tunes specific to your vehicle. When you order a tuner, you aren't just getting a tuner - you are getting the tuner and 3 dyno-tested custom Bama tunes:

  • Street (87-93 octane) - the street tune is designed as a daily driver program that focuses in on increasing mid-range power. It does give up a few HP at higher RPMs, but that's why there is a Performance file. Automatic vehicles are further enhanced by making adjustments to the transmission's shift points and firmness.
  • Performance (87-93 octane) - The Performance program is designed to add power at 3000 RPMs and higher, focusing more on the top end horsepower and all out performance driving. Timing, fuel and throttle response settings are slightly more aggressive than the street tune. This is a great track tune but also works well for daily drivers that are looking for a little more "get up and go" than the street tune. The automatic transmission settings are the same as in the street tune.
  • Race (91 - 93 octane) - The race tune will ensure the largest increase in vehicle performance. Using the highest grade of fuel available in your area is mandatory. This file is designed for "Race only Use" as the timing, fuel, and throttle response settings are very aggressive. In fact, the adjustments are so aggressive, that we do not recommend it for daily driving as it may cause your vehicle to try to jump out from a stop and easily spin the tires. Finally, with the automatics, we implement entirely new shift points and firmness settings to further enhance the all-out performance of the vehicle.

Nitrous (91-unleaded race gas) - Our nitrous option can be added to any of our previously mentioned tune options, but only for 91-octane unleaded fuel.

Easy to load; easy to restore. Not only are the custom tunes easy to load on your vehicle, it is just as easy to restore your factory settings. When you load your custom tune on the vehicle, the tuner automatically stores your vehicle's factory settings. To return the vehicle to its factory settings, just plug the tuner back in, select the option to restore the factory settings, and you're done.

Review & Install Video

Hey Justin from 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 with everything you see here, including a reusable high flow intake filter, heat shield, lightweight aluminum 2 piece intake shield in that polished black finish, and all the couplers and hardware needed for the install. If you didn’t know, cooler, denser air results in more horsepower, so with that in mind, this intake puts the filter right in the fender well, allowing for maximum cool air, especially when paired with that heat shield, that should prevent any hot engine bay air from entering the intake. Ok so we all want to know just how much power this intake is going to make, but in order to do so we do need to grab a quick baseline run from our automatic 2000 GT behind me, and then get to work installing this SR Performance intake. Removing the stock airbox and installing the new SR Performance intake is a pretty straightforward task that should only take you about an hour using basic hand tools. Keep in mind you will need to transfer the mass air housing and sensor to the new intake, because the SR Performance intake does not come with either. Even though the SR Performance intake does not require a tune, we are going to upload one of our custom 93 octane Bama tunes, in hopes of seeing some sizeable gains with this setup. This tune is going to optimize our spark timing, perfect our air/fuel ratios, and as a result we should be looking at some drastically improved throttle response. And for our automatic here we’re looking for increased shift firmness, in addition to adjustable shift points. Alright, with our intake bolted up and our tune loaded, we’re going to fire up our GT one more time and see how we do. So our baseline run with our automatic 2000 GT gave us 222 horsepower, and 260 ft/lbs of torque. With our cold air intake and bama combination, we put down 249 horsepower and 295 ft/lbs of torque, making for a peak gain of 27 horsepower over our baseline numbers, and gains of 35 horsepower and 54 ft/lbs of torque throughout the curve. Not only do we pick up more horsepower and torque using this setup, but we also improved our under the hood appearance as well, so even though this intake doesn’t have a big brand name attached to it, it certainly held up its end of the bargain, and delivered some nice gains for a price that’s very hard to beat. So be sure to check out an SR Performance cold air intake for your 4.6 right here at

  • 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.

Can you use this with 2 cars? My dad has a 98 GT and I have an 00 GT. Can we use the tuner on both vehicles?


  • In order to tune for two different Mustangs, you would need two different tuners. Once a tune is loaded to the computer, it becomes locked to that car. You would not be able to share one tuner for the two Mustangs unfortunately.

    I used this on my 96 gt. The only complaints I have , no instructions in the box, the pipe had a few scratches out of the box, and the air filter is wrong for the pipe not a foot fitment at all. Clamps could have been a little better. Overall a good product still using on my car until I make a few upgrades to my car.

    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.

    Review from SR Performance Black Cold Air Intake (96-04 GT)

    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.

    Review from SR Performance Black Cold Air Intake (96-04 GT)

    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.

    Review from SR Performance CAI and Bama Tuner (96-04 GT)

    Absolutely phenomenal

    I have a 1999 Mustang GT and this kit helped me out ALOT. I have a 78mm accufab throttlebody and it wasnt tuned for it so it had some lag, instantly when I installed this two products I was kicked back in my seat on the performance tune. The best part about the tuner is the support stuff, the bama guys will help you whenever and however they can without question! Thanks again AM!
