Description
Gain Up to 20 Horsepower. Gain up to 20 horsepower and 30 lb-ft of torque with Steeda's cold air intake for your 2011-2014 Mustang V6. Think adding 20 ponies out of your 3.7 sounds too good to be true? These impressive numbers have been dyno-proven by Steeda, ensuring your Pony will also achieve significant gains with this system and a custom tune. Innovative Design. A result of Steeda's unique partnership with Ford, this intake keeps the factory cold air feed ducting from the front bumper and uses a stainless steel heat shield to prevent hot air from entering your engine bay. Combined with their "ProFlow" intake tube, your Mustang will keep its factory noise tube and PCV tubes for less mess in your engine bay, less noise, and less heat.

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.

Easy Installation. Installing the Steeda Intake for your 2011-2014 V6 takes about an hour, and requires only basic tools.

Application. This Steeda ProFlow Cold Air Intake is specifically designed for use on the 2011-2013+ V6 Mustangs, both manual or automatic transmission, with the 3.7L TiVCT V6 engine. Requires a new computer tune.

Technical Note. Installation of this Cold Air Intake will require the use of a Mustang Handheld Tuner to reprogram the vehicles computer (ECU) for operation.

  • No, you can not share his tune files. Once a custom tune is loaded, the tuner is locked to that Mustang's VIN number. Two cars can not be tuned using the same tune files. You would need to get a custom tune for your own Mustang to accompany this Steeda Cold Air Intake.

    2 hours to install, should be an option. Still, 2 hours well spent. The installation was easy, the directions were clear enough. I was able to figure out the fuzzy bits without too much trouble. Building the intake before putting it in the car was easy enough. putting it in after it was built took all of ten minutes. For the record, IT DOES fit with a TB spacer. The setup with a performance tune sounds amazing. You might think I had an exhaust kit on the car. Exhaust is totally stock. (for now) It pulls WAY harder now and ROARS above 3000 RPMs. still nice an quiet at the lower RPMs. SO I can drive through my neighborhood at night without annoying the neighbors. Two other notes. I did NOT need to cut any metal to make anything fit. It all fit perfectly. Maybe Steeda fixed the problem that the other reviewers was talking about. maybe I got lucky. who knows? The Tru-Fiber Venom hood ram air intake lines up perfectly over the intake. My ram air was never functional before because the stock airbox is sealed on top. AM was as fast as always. Nice service!

    Great performance and sound, bad fit

    March 23, 2012

    product works great. really increased throttle response and power. sounds great and makes a nice whistle. main problem was the fitment. the MAF sensor tube was not big enough to fit through the heat shield. other than a few other small fitment issues, product is good.

    Read THIS Review!!!

    August 17, 2012

    I already had the SCT tuner and was getting 35mpg @ 70mph (93 Street tune). After installing the Steeda CAI (along with new tune), I took this bad boy out on the interstate. Got 37.8mpg for 15 miles @70mpg (93 RACE tune). The throttle response is greatly improved as well. The air intake sound is amazing...and the exhaust...OH MY GOD the exhaust...has changed. My car has a rumble and sounds better than a stock 2011 GT. Get the Steeda CAI and you might not want an aftermarket exhaust anymore...I still do...but that's because I'm young and wild. I feel like I bought a CAI and axleback...but only spend $380. Great product.

    Steeda or NOTHING

    April 19, 2013

    I've had this on my 2012 V6 for a few months now. I also have a tune on my car. This CAI was easy to put together and install. I used a bit of rubber cement to keep the rubber seal on the shroud. I already had a tune on my car and when I installed the CAI. I flashed over the new BAMA tune file and I noticed immediate power gains. The reason I went with Steeda is because they are a recognized Ford aftermarket provider. BUY THIS CAI, you will not be disappointed.

    AMAZING!

    February 24, 2012

    So as everyone here, i was also afraid to spend more than twice the money from other intakes without knowing much about it or seeing a video online explaining in detail the power gains. I am 100% happy with this purchase. 2 main reasons. 1. Power gain. I installed it with a custom tune, and the gain is very noticeable and changed my car completely. Thing is, the tune does that with other intakes too. But i believe this one provide more power and here why. Compared to other intakes like AIRAID and C&L, they are open in the front, therefore letting hot air from engine in. This intake is completely sealed. Even though the top is open, once hood is closed the hood itself protects the top from hot air. It uses the stock system from stock airfilter, so it is always pulling in cold air. 2. it is HUGE. I love the size of this intake it really does change the look of the engine. Not only that, but the engine sounds so much more throaty and the best part (in my opinion) no lie, every time you hit accelerator, you hear the intake take in air (sounds like a mini blow off valve) and makes your mustang sound mean, and different from other V6s. ONLY ONE CON: Not a big deal since I did this at my shop but, the small tube with sensors the goes in airbox did not fit. I had to cut a very very small piece of metal so it would fit. VERY HAPPY AND WOULD NOT CHANGE THIS FOR ANYTHING.

    Great Upgrade!

    January 26, 2012

    I had the C&L cold air intake before for almost a year and I personally was not quite satisfied with the fit with the Airaid throttle body spacer. I knew this cold air intake is much more of a solid and factory-like fit, and I was able to fit it perfectly with the throttle body spacer! However, I gave the fit 4 stars because the MAF housing wouldnt fit through the hole of the stainless steel housing. So I filed a spot down a bit and got it through. Also a few washers were missing; overall just a few minor things were missing, but were easily fixable. Since it requires a tune, I have notice a bit more in off the line throttle response, and pulls more past around 40mph. Overall, it looks great in the engine bay, fits like a glove, and performance gains are great!

    Love this air intake super easy to install and sounds great .

    October 12, 2011

    Love it definitely recommend it even though it is a little pricy go ahead and spend alittle bit more trust me you'll love it. It was super easy to install and has a perfect fit. Gives the car a nice deep sound when u hit the gas and you can definitely tell it has more power when you also install the tuner.

    WILL UT SMILE ON YOUR FACE

    March 11, 2013

    it took me a little longer than an hour but it was pretty easy, and after the installation and the tune, i can't paint the smile on my face. i can feel the gain and the get up and go feel of the car, in addition the sound of the cold air intake every time you step on the gas is like a blow off bulb, and the exhaust sound changed big time, it's like having a after market exhaust when the throttle is wide open.

    made my V6 Exhaust Sound Way better

    August 02, 2014

    This is the best CAI you can buy for your car the only downside is that you have to buy it with a tuner to ensure your car runs right. So look for this and an BAMA X4 in a package deal you will save some money. Buy This if you have a V6 Mustang You will love the way it sounds, i plan on getting a supercharger it this almost made it sound like i already have one. sounds great
