Features & Details

  • Increased Horsepower and Throttle Response.
  • Reusable High Flow Air Filter.
  • Polished Aluminum Finish.
  • Simple Installation.
  • Fits 94-98 3.8 V6 Mustangs.
  • No Tune Required
Improves Horsepower. This SR Performance V6 Mustang Cold Air Intake kit completely replaces the factory air box and restrictive paper filter element in your 1994-1998 3.8 V6 Mustang with a high flow filter assembly for a noticeable increase in horsepower and throttle response while filtering out destructive power robbing dust particles. This V6 CAI 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 High Flow reusable air filter. So 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!

Polished Finish. An SR Performance Cold Air Intake not only improves horsepower and acceleration, but it also improves your mustangs under hood appearance with a striking polished aluminum finish. Now you can have the best of both worlds, performance and style.

Simple Install. SR Performance Cold Air Intake kits are relatively easy to install with basic hand tools. No extra modifications are required for the installation. See the video below for an overview of the installation process.

Mass air flow sensor Ok I'm new to the "pony" game all my older cars don't have air sensors or any of this stuff. just normaly aspirated with lots of CI. when putting a cold air intake on my daughters 97 V6 do I need to replace the old Mass air sensor or just use the one on the car?


  • You just reuse the Mass Air from the factory unit. remove it from the plastic housing, and then you bolt one side of the C.A.I. with it's included gasket to your factory mass air and housing, and attach the other side of the C.A.I. to it with a rubber coupling and hose clamps. You shouldn't need to buy anything unless your Mass Air is faulty or damaged.

Cold air intake It says your are suppose to oil the filter but no where does it say how to do it and how much.....and also will oil make it retain more dirt i a wheel well and have to clean more often


  • You can get the oil to clean them at any auto parts store. It's not too expensive and it doesn't go onto the mustang wet. You take the filter out, soak it and let it dry for an afternoon. It'll come with more instructions.

How big is the cone filter opening? I’ve had the same filter for years and it’s getting worn and want to get a new one. I would just measure it now but it takes some time to get to the filter.


  • The filter for the SR Performance Cold Air Intake will have a 3.5" opening. Replacement filters are available at the link below.

Does the filter come oil? If not, how do I properly oil the filter and with what kind of oil is the bes?


  • The SR Performance Cold Air Intake already comes oiled, and is ready to use out-of-the-box. For cleaning and oiling the filter, you may use an air filter recharge kit that is available at your local auto parts store, such as the K&N recharge kit.

will this cold air intake work with a throttle body spacer or will the shock tower be in the way


  • The SR Performance Cold Air Intake will work with most spacers, however, they can interfere with the shock towers on occasions. Many enthusiasts that have encountered the issue have been successfully able to make the filter fit without interference.

    Zach V's 98 Stang

    This intake is a great upgrade and I just received it today around 1:00p.m. and I was on the road for a test drive at 3:00 p.m. I didn't get any instruction in my package but I decided that wasn't a problem and I went to American to print the instructions. As soon as they were printed I went out to my stang and the instructions were great in taking off the original intake but the instructions on putting on the new on lacked much in elaboration. I played with all the braces to find out what one worked best and where. After numerous attempts I realized that the 3" - 2.75" Step Down Coupler (1) attached to the throttle body and the other 3" coupler connected in between the MAF and the first pipe. I didn't have to go under to the wheel like many others had I just assembled the MAF sensor, bottom pipe, fender shield and the air filter with the hose clamp tightened all the way because you won't have access to it once it is put in. Then, put it in the whole but don't tighten anything yet. Next, install the top pipe properly but DO NOT tighten the hose clamps, except the air filter one from earlier. Then, connect the to pipes together and tighten the screws holding the fender shield in place. After that tighten the hose clamps and connect all the components. After this hassle I took it out and I heard these comments of it sounding like a turbo/ supercharger. I punched the gas expecting it to be loud but it wasn't even that noticeable, prolly because of my straight pipes :) I did notice a increase in power, I usually floor it and have to shift at 4000 rpm because it isn't pushing that hard once it is that high BUT, with this intake the rpm keep going UP!! I shifted at about 4500 rpm and I heard my tires bark as I went into second :) I then listened close and I heard the whistling noise and I loved it! Don't buy an expensive intake because they all do the same job with different names. I thought about buying the $180.00 intakes but I'm so GLAD I didn't because this $75 is the best I have spent on my car. I'm only 16 year old and I installed it by myself. I almost forgot to mention the BEAST sound it gives. As soon as I turned over the starter I heard my car and I turned my head because I couldn't believe how GOOD it sounded. I gave it some gas to hear it and it sounds amazing! If this kit was only for the sound difference; I would still buy it. We are lucky it improves sound, speed, power and looks for only $75. I can't explain in words how much I would recommend it. Just buy it because you are missing out and you won't regret it at all!!! -Dark green 1998 Mustang V6

    great part

    I have a 98 and this is a great buy for the price. It took about 40 minutes to install, everything fit perfectly except for the pipe that goes from the throttle body to the air sensor was to long, took an inch off and it lined up perfect. It starts to make a cool whistling sound at about 1500 rpm to 2500. Their is a slight difference in throttle response and power but don't expect a huge gain, all in all well worth it.

    Not California Legal

    This was a pretty easy install even though there were no directions in the box. Laying it out was pretty elementary. Biggest problem with this CAI is it is NOT California Emissions Legal. Unless you can find some Pablo that is cool with you greasing his palm to overlook it not having the sticker on it I don't suggest my fellow CA drivers to waste their money on it. I have to now buy a completely different BBK CAI now just to get my car legal again.

    Not Bad

    I originally had the K&N air filter, but i like the idea of the cone going in the side wall so i decided to try this product out and for the price you cant beat it. As for performance i would say it does respond alittle better than the K&N filter but nothing huge. It also make a cool whistle noise at around 2500 RPMs. Id say its worth it, Just be sure you know places when getting it smogged that don't care about the C.A.R.B sticker because it doesn't come with one.

    Aftermarket cold air intake

    This product is amazing. Period. Bought this for my 1995 srs mustang and wow does it make a difference. For only 70 bucks this is an incredible modification. The acceleration increase is substantial its almost like i can push the pedal down farther or something! And the resounding whistle that the engine makes when you accelerate sounds great :) I did how ever come across a few snags on the install. When i was taking the sensor off the old intake it was clamped on and verrry hard to get off. It didnt look quite like the one in the video. That wasnt the big deal though but when i was putting in the new CAI the rubber grommet that the sensor is supposed to just slid into was no where close to fitting the sensor. I really wasnt sure what to do so i just pulled the grommet out. The whole that was left by the grommet was enough to slip the sensor into so I just left the grommet out and used silicon to hold the sensor in and give it a seamless air tight fit. The only other this was that the bolts you use to screw the plate to the included mounts didnt line up right. The was a wire harness that went through the hole cut out for the filter to fit though. No idea if this is just my car or what but it was a pain for my buddy and I to attach. NO idea if anyone else had these issues but the finished product is amazing! defiant buy and for the money amazing mod. Thanks again AM!

    definitely worth it!

    I bought this product expecting what the reviews had told. and yes, it gives your engine a throatier sound, and increases your rpm range from 0-4000 rpms, to about 0-4500 rpms. The "turbo" sound people say you get is not what it seems, cause its not a turbo. but its a nice little detail you'll probably like. It also adds mpg. this combined with the bbk pulley upgrade can give you mpg the new 2013 mustang gives you, and then some! There is only one problem, when fitting the intake, the fender seemed it wouldnt fit, along with the bolts, but with some strength, and a extra pair of hands, it will fit nicely so those with little experience might wanna have a buddy help them.

    $75???...Ummmm Ok

    I live in Canada and ordered this on a Friday, It was here Tuesday morning before I even woke up...POSITIVE Opened the box and everything was there(no instructions tho) Just used this site...POSITIVE... Everything fit together nice and easy and i didnt really have any big problems... just annoying things cause i didnt have a third hand...POSITIVE I did notice on the pictures provided for the install that the guy had to get another air hose... He never mentioned that... I just moved mine around a little until it fit but will need a new one eventually.... After i had everything a part i realized i should have ordered the throttle body as well cause it would have been so much easier to do it now then later one....Oh Well... But anywho... This was such an easy install... I NEVER work on cars and was going to wait and pay someone to do it but i couldnt wait... so i did it myself starting at 9:30am and on the road by 11:30am.... Again keep in mind i NEVER work on car.... Don't even know how to check my oil or any of that stuff.... Seriously a 3 armed monkkey could have done this.... Highly recommend this product... But get the throttle body too

    Cool Air Intake

    Took me about 3 hours to install (never installed an intake system before). The biggest reason it took so long is because I couldn't fit the air hose onto the new intake and I had to cut it and clamp it to the cool air intake with a hose clamp that I bought. Also, I had to go up through the fender to put the actual filter onto the pipe... Other than those problems, there is a sweet and very noticeable whistle and for less than $100 this system is well worth the buck

    All Around Good CAI

    This was one of the first mods I put on my 95 V6. Has a nice polished aluminum finish, adds a decent 5-10HP and still utilizes the cooler air from the fender, instead of the higher temps of the engine bay. Simple hand tools installation. This was definitely a good purchase. Does the job and costs far less than many name brands. AmericanMuscle knows what they're doing...

    Works Great!

    First off, shipping was lightning fast! Got here the next day! Installation was pretty easy, no real problems---The plastic pipe connector for the middle of the pipes needs to be boiled a little bit to soften the rubber so it will fit over them. Other then that, everything went in fine! Just followed the video step by step! Looks real nice compared to the stock intake! Definitely made the car sound completely different, like more of a aggressive sounding tone. Has a cool whistle that you can hear when the windows are up. As far as performance goes, my car feels like it drives smoother--more free... 1st gear seems to have a little bit more power then before. All in all, good first mod. More to come I'm sure :-)

    V6 CAI on 95 Mustang

    Forget the instructions, just watch the video... Instructions are useless. Installed in about 2 hours an hour of which was getting the temperature sensor into the rubber grommet which takes some serious force, stretching of the grommet, slightly tearing the grommet, holding the grommet with pliers and using another pair of pliers to twist in the sensor in. Eventually you will get it in but be prepared to be working at it for a while. This is only a problem for 94 and 95 mustangs because the sensor is threaded. The vacuum hose is hard to get on the tube (makes for a really tight fit) and you will need to cut the hose a couple inches because it's going to be too long on the new intake. Another word of advice, once you've got it on, run the car until it's nice and hot then go and retighten all of your ring clamps. The heat will cause the rubber to get soft and the clamps will not be as tight anymore so retighten. Assembly slightly sags a little at the MAF. I don't know if it's suppose to do that or not but it's not getting in the way and it still seems sturdy, just has a little give to it. If you've never done it, this would also be a good time to clean your MAF. After installation, access to it is a breeze. Just pick up some electrical contact cleaner and a Torx 20 security bit. The car is 15 years old and I've never cleaned it, better late than never. As far as sound... started the car and didn't notice any difference. At low RPM's it does make a whistle but that goes away at around 2000-2500 RPMS and then it's just all a nice growl :) Didn't notice much horsepower gain, if any, but she will keep accelerating at high RPM's... 4000-4500 definitely has some more pickup. It may not give you much more hp's but you will decrease your 0-60 time. Throttle is slightly more responsive which is a plus.
