Simple installation for anyone.
Hey, guys, Adam here with americanmuscle.com. Today, I'm bringing you a detailed overview and installation of the SR Performance Cold Air Intake kit, fitting all '94 and '95 5-liter V8 Mustangs. So, in this video, we'll be going over the performance and benefits of adding the SR Performance Cold Air Intake as well as all the materials and construction that goes into putting the kit together. I'll top the video off with the install, which I'll let you know upfront is a very, very simple one out of three wrenches on our difficulty meter, making this one one of the easiest mods possible you can do to your 5-liter, V8 engine. This SR Performance Cold Air Intake kit is going to be for any '94 and '95 5-liter V8 Mustang, whether it's a GT or a Cobra. The SR Performance Intake kit will be a better overall improvement in performance over the factory air box and, of course, will give you a slightly better throttle response while also being the most budget-friendly option on the market. So, everything you see on the table here with me will complete the SR Performance Cold Air Intake kit and, of course, will completely replace your stock air box in your pushrod V8. Now, this is an overall improvement from your factory air box because of the better airflow from the aluminum polished tubing, all the way down to the reusable oiled air filter from SR Performance. Now, the high-flow oiled filter will, of course, sit comfortably in your inner fender well and pull in the cooler, denser air, which leads to a slightly improved throttle response overall. So, one of the great things about the SR Performance kit we have here, as well as some of the other cold air intakes on the market for the '94, '95 5-liters, is that they don't require a computer tune. Now, even though this does utilize the mass air flow sensor technology, it doesn't require you to go out and pick up a retune for your computer just to work properly. Now, one of the great things about it, though, is if you do pick up a computer tune, it can help you maximize the potential performance out of the SR kit, but, of course, is not ultimately required, saving you money in the long run, so it's really up to your preference and how much you wanna spend and get out of the SR Performance kit. Now, with all that information in mind, I wanna point out I don't want you to expect the world of difference when it comes to horsepower and torque gains when adding this to your engine. Now, with this installed, and even if you did pick up a computer tune, you're still expecting single-digit gains as far as horsepower and torque are concerned, but, of course, it does, overall, improve your throttle response slightly, and you will feel a little bit of a difference in acceleration. So, it is a better upgrade from your stock air box, but I just wanna point out I don't want you to expect the world of gains, as far as wheel horsepower. So, what makes the SR Performance kit stand out, of course, will be materials and construction. Now, when it comes to the high-flow oil filter, this is a reusable filter from SR. It's an oiled filter. It comes oiled right out of the box. All you gotta do is pop it on, install it, and you're good to go. When it comes time for cleaning, it makes your job a lot easier. You don't have to go out and pick up a new filter. This one, all you'd have to do is pop it off by untwisting the clamps, pulling it out of the system, clean it, re-oil it, pop it right back on, and you're good to go. On top of the filter, coming straight through with the air, you actually get a slightly better air flow with the tubing from SR Performance. This is made of a billet aluminum, of course, has that polished finish. It does give you a slightly better air flow but overall has a very high quality. And the polished finish gives you a very attractive look when you pop the hood, so it's great for the guys out there attending a lot of car shows with their early SNs and wanna make their engine bays stand out a little bit more. So, I briefly mentioned earlier this is one of the most budget-friendly options on the market, if not the most budget-friendly. So, this one comes in right around 80 bucks, and my personal opinion, that price cannot be beat. Now, the SR Performance one, I actually have installed on my own '95 Cobra, and, of course, with the 5-liter V8 Mustangs, that stock air box just kinda doesn't cut it. It does give you a slightly better throttle response, and for the 80 bucks, if you're not super interested in that throttle response, maybe you're just taking it to a car show, the polished finish is a really good look. If you're not interested in the polished, maybe you're not really interested in that shine, there's also a matte black powder coated option on the site as well with the blackout. That's actually what I have on my car, but either way, it's just a finish. It really is up to your personal preference. Shifting gears to the install portion of the video, like I said in the beginning, this one's gonna be one of the easiest things you can possibly do to your pushrod V8 engine. All you're gonna need is a flathead screwdriver, a ratchet, and a simple socket set. And all of the hardware you see here, including the clamps, couplers, all the hardware is included for you in the kit. So, to get things started, all you have to do is unbolt, unclamp all of your factory air box hardware, because the whole thing is gonna be removed from your factory system. You're gonna completely replace that with the tubing you see here. You get brand new couplers, brand new clamps. You're just replacing it all in the reverse order, ending up with your air filter sticking into the fender well, of course. Overall, I'd say about 30 to 45 minutes tops on the install and a very simple 1 out of 3 wrenches on our difficulty meter. So, overall, if you're the owner of a '94, '95 5-liter V8 Mustang, and you're looking for a way to replace that factory air box to get a better throttle response, better air flow to your V8 pushrod, or if you're just looking for the attractive shine finish of the polished, you might wanna check out the SR Performance Cold Air Intake, which is available right here at americanmuscle.com.

Good but not great
Clean looking design, honestly had a bit of a hassle fitting the filter dam into the fender well. Could've been manufactured a little bit better. Nice little boost in throttle response. Not sure of any HP gains but feels a little bit peppier.Helpful (1)

Will this kit work with a 75mm mass air?
Hello! The SR Performance Cold Air Intake is designed to work with the factory MAF housing.
How much horsepower does it increase by ?
The horsepower increase will depend on other modifications you have done as well as if you tune the car.
when using this is the Airaid throttle body spacer still going to make a good fit? is it a good combination?
The SR Performance Cold Air Intake (94-95 5.0L) will work with the Airaid Poweraid Throttle Body Spacer (94-95 5.0L) item number 52214 with no problem.
it will fit a 70mm, it is designed to fit various sizes
it screws into the matal bung with no grommet
It is ready to be used out of the box. However, you'll want to pick up a recharge kit to oil it after cleaning when you do clean the filter.
The SR Performance Cold Air Intake will just bolt on to stock applications.
This system does not carry a CARB compliance number and thus will not be legal in the state of Californa for use.
This intake is designed for 94-95 Mustang GT models only and will not work with a V6. For V6 models, the cold air intakes we offer can be found here: https://www.americanmuscle.com/94-98-mustang-air-intakes.html#shop-by3.
Unfortunately this intake is not CARB certified for use in California. We do offer several intakes that are CARB legal though which can be found here: https://www.americanmuscle.com/cnl-76maf-cai-9495gt.htmland https://www.americanmuscle.com/bbk-cai-9495-50.html.
Yes, the SR Performance Cold Air Intake will fit on the OEM throttle body on a 94 Mustang GT.
No it does not come assembled.
If you need a CARB number, this cold air intake is not CARB certified. However, otherwise we do not have that information on hand unfortunately. What I usually tell people is to shoot an email to the guy who is going to do your inspection (or contact them one way or another) and just ask them. If they say they will pass this in inspection than go ahead an buy it. If not, then don't buy it. Either way, you are probably fine with this CAI but it is never bad to double check.
