Increases Horsepower and Torque. The biggest "bang for the buck" modification that anyone can make to their GT or Bullitt Mustang is adding a Steeda cold air intake. Steeda's uniquely designed 90mm CAI allows your pony to breathe easier which translates into a significant increase of 38 horsepower, 30 ft lbs of torque at the rear wheels.

Superior Airflow. Designed for superior airflow the Steeda Cold Air Intake Kit features a high-flow plastic inlet elbow and rechargeable air filter to ensure optimum airflow for better throttle response and more power.

Reusable High Flow Air Filter. The included Steeda dual cone air filter has more surface area than competitors single cone filters to allow your Pony to breath much easier for more power. And best of all the filter is reusable, just clean it, re-oil it, save money and go.

Stainless Steel Heat Shield. Steeda knows that hot air is bad for combustion. That's why they have included a heat shield made from 304 stainless steel to reduce the intake temperature to within 5-10 degrees of the ambient air for more horsepower.

Application. This Steeda Cold Air Intake System is specifically designed for use on the 2005 to 2009 GT and 2008 to 2009 Bullitt Mustangs equipped with the 3V 4.6L engine. A computer re-tune is required for operation.

Note: Coupon codes cannot be applied to this product.

Technical note: Installation of this Steeda CAI requires the use of a 2005-2009 Mustang Tuner to reprogram the cars computer for the Cold Air Intake.

    Giddy UP!!!!!

    This CAI with a new Tune from Bama along with my Ford Racing 4.10 gears is insane! My Pony sounds wicked with this and Flowmaster Outlaws. The throttle response and HP gain is VERY noticeable. I love it! It does what it says it will do. I switched out my KandN for the Steeda and I am glad I did. This is one Killer CAI and worth every penny. Install is about an hour and very easy. Just take your time. Make sure the Throttle Body clamps are TIGHT. If you have a CAI and are looking to switch you will need the (2) rubber grommets from the bottom of the stock airbox. If you do not have them I am sure your Ford Dealer can get them for you. They are a MUST for a perfect fit with this unit. Go for it! You will be REAL glad you did. Thanks AM! You guys Rock!

    I looked at several CAI before deciding on Steeda. The thing that struck me was how happy everyone seemed with their purchase... Not a single negative review was to be found. Now I know why.. This CAI combined with a Bama tune exceeded my wildest hopes of how my GT would perform. I find myself constantly patting my pony on the dash now saying "Easy girl... Calm down"

    If you're going to buy some performace parts for your 05-09 Mustang GT then buy this product. Buy this with the Bama SF3/X3 Power Flash Tuner w/ 3 Free Custom Tunes (05-10 GT). You will NOT regret it, buy them both right now. The fit was a little tight and the product requires a bit of prepparing. HUGE performance gains and it sounds super sexy. Seriously, if you dont buy this... there is something wrong with you lol.

    A Must

    I was a little skeptical, but trust me American muslce has not let me down yet. You can feel the torque and above 3500 rpms you feel the extra hp kick in. You will not be dissapointed. Defenite recommend!

    *Steeda CAI*

    I just recently purchased the CAI package with the SCT X3 and could not be more satisfied. I put the intake on in 20 min. and tuned it in another 5 min., and felt a lot more torque, and felt huge hp gains at 3500 rpms+. I also feel real good pick-up accelerating in 3+4 gear.

    Excellent Mod

    I was deciding between this Cold Air intake or JLT but let me tell you it completely woke up my 06 GT (Auto). The custom tune once I loaded it up made a dramatic difference. Its basically one of those mods for the s197 GT that you say, "Ok this thing is beast"!!!!

    STEEDA massive CAI

    if your thinking about a CAI for your Stang this is deffinitly THE ONE! after you install this and just rev your Stang up for the first time itll be like the first time you heard it. you litterally hear the amount of air being engulphed into your filter by the slight whistle at first rev and through out shifts its insane. i think ill be replacing my new tires here soon already i just cant stay off the gas. it really does unleash the beast that true mustang drivers look for when considering mods... if your thinking it may be a little high priced believe me ITS WORTH IT! install was pretty easy although i have a little bit of mechanical experiance but still very simple. steeda did it right and absolutely utilized all the space under the hood for this CAI so if you have a TB spacer like myself just be aware it will take a lil squeezing and elbow grease. overall its awesome! go buy one and tune your pony up and smoke them tires.

    Steeda outdoes the rest

    I previously had a K&N CAI kit on my car. It was a great improvement over the factory intake tube, however fell short in several areas, mainly fit and finish quality areas. That lead to me ordering this Steeda CAI kit, and I was not disappointed. The install is very simple, just take your time, follow the instructions and you will soon be in your car, loading a new tune and rolling down the road. If you have a CAI on your car now and did not save your stock airbox, you will have fitment issues because you need to re-use to rubber isolators on the bottom. I had my car dyno tuned with this, just to wring out the most power. I am now at 314 HP and 327 TRQ at the rear wheels on 91 pump gas tune that is easy to live with on the street.

    Buy it

    Ranks next to my 4:10 ring & pinon gears in regards to performance gain. I was concerned about not having a BAMA Tuner, but my Diablo Predator tuner interfaced perfectly, Vas with Diablo provided outstanding in providing the needed support. I've gained big time hp and sound, I usually outsource most my upgrades, this one I did myself, it was so every easy my wife could have done it. Would have purchased long ago had I known the Diablo Predator would suffice for the BAMA Tuner.

    Best mod for $

    This and a tune (you must have a tune) will get you the most hp for the cheapest price and should be the first thing you do. Looks great and is always clean. Noticeable dif in power, and you can actually hear it sucking air with the windows as you play with the gas.

    Steeda Cold Air Intake

    This intake made a night and day difference in overall sound and performance. Originally had the AFE cold air and decide to get the steeda because of overall 38rwhp, big difference between the two money well spent. It gave me better acceleration and top end speed. Feels stronger pulling through the gears as well.

    You're crazy to not purchase this.

    I installed the Steed CAI on my stock 2006 GT manual, and use a 91 octane Race Tune from Bama tuning. Everything else on the car is completely stock. This morning I had it dyno'd, and it turned out 308 rwhp, and 326 rwtq. That works out to 362 hp and 384 tq at the crank! It then ran a quarter mile time in 13.39 @ 110 mph. If that's not justification enough to spend the money on this, I'm not sure what is. American Muscle and Bama tuning are excellent to deal with. BUY THIS NOW!

    It looks and sounds awesome

    The fitment wasn't perfect and the installation instructions are really bad, I found a nice video online on how to install and with some observation and time I was able to get it right. The rubber seal doesn't fit great with the heat shield but with some tweaking you should be able to get it there. Overall is a great product, I just wish it had better instructions and a better fix. I can't wait to get my custom bama tunes to really squeeze the power out of this baby!

    Great HP gain without question. A night and day difference. Very easy to install. If you want more HP this is def the way to get it. I installed it on my 2009 GT.

    Hp Gain

    This Steeda intake took me 30 mins to install and was worth every penny i spent! With my Livewire Tuner it really makes my car come alive! I am getting more 2 mpg, and 34 hp gain. Also, looks great under the hood! Really hear the growl too!
