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.

Note: Coupon codes cannot be applied to this product.

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.

  • It doesn't give an exact number, but with my v6 My mpg jumped 1-2 mpg I do most of my driving in the city, a lot of etop and go traffic In conclusion, you can expect anywhere from 1-3 But at first you won't be able to keep your foot off of the gas :p

when to apply the new tune should i put the new tune on my car for this CAI before or after i install it, or does it not matter? i just don't want to throw an engine light

Derek15

  • You shouldn't upload a tune to your Mustang that will include parts not yet installed. The best time to upload a new tune for your CAI is at the time you install your CAI. If you can't do them at the same time, you should upload the new tune after you install the CAI. You will have a CEL light until the new tune is loaded, but won't cause any harm. My advice: put in your new tune order for the CAI and order the CAI at the same time. This way, by the time you receive your CAI, the updated tune will be complete and ready for you as well. Then just install the CAI, upload the new tunes and you'll be all set! If you have any further questions, please don't hesitate to give us a call!

Can i use my friends tune instead of buying a new one? if my friend allready has a bama tunner do i have to buy one or can i just use the tunner he has?? he works at a dealership so he can hook me up with a tune up but i dont know if i have to use a new one

ZepedaXVI

  • 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.

    Only Intake Worth Your Money

    This cold air intake was recommended to me by a friend. Originally, I was just going to get a BBK or Airaid, and there is no possible way any of the other air intakes would give you the gains you were looking for compared to this one. While the Steeda intake is more expensive, you are getting more horsepower and torque per dollar than you would with a cheaper intake. I got this with a 93 octane tune from Bama, and I got on the throttle just a little bit when we took it out and instantly my Mustang was already 10 times better, and go great with my Borla ATAKs. I 100 recommend this intake just because of the fact that it requires a tune

    Great performance and sound, bad fit

    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.

    Fantastic Sound

    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!

    Read THIS Review!!!

    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.

    AMAZING!

    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.

    Steeda or NOTHING

    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.

    Great Upgrade!

    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 .

    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.

    Looking for a CAI... This is the one you need!

    Im new to adding mods to my Mustang, but I knew starting off with a CAI would be a great way to start to add some extra hp. But I wasn't expecting the performance gain like a received from adding this amazing piece of equipment. Turning on your car right after installing it, you can hear the whistle and you can really feel and hear the power being sucked once you hit the gas pedal. Putting it on was a little tough do to the size of the CAI but I also had a Throttle body and a spacer with it as well. Recommend this to everyone!
