    Review & Install Video

    Hey, Mike Wilson here from AmericanMuscle.com, today we’re going to show you the C&L cold air intake kit for the 2005-2009 Mustang V6 and what you can expect with it when you combine it with a 93 octane bama race tune. But before we do that, we’re going to make a stock dyno run on the car so we can see what our baseline horse power and torque numbers are. Stock, our 2005 V6 automatic put down 172 horse power and 196 ft/lbs of torque. By removing the factory restrictive airbox and replacing with a high flow reusable air filter, and a cast aluminium intake tube, the C&L cold air intake kit will increase horse power, torque, acceleration, and give you a nice throaty engine sound. And the shiny ceramic appearance will enhance the under hood appearance of your Mustang. Now we’re going to install this cold air intake, which should take less than an hour, and can be done with simple hand tools you have at home. Along with the cold air intake, we also installed one of our 94 octane bama race tunes. A custom tune from bama performance adjusts engine parameters to maximize performance through optimized air/fuel ratio, spark advance, enhanced throttle response, and for automatics, increased shift firmness and adjustable shift points. Now let’s make another dyno run, and see what kind of horse power and torque numbers we get. We installed the C&L cold air intake kit along with a bama performance tune, and the car put down 191 horse power, and 222 ft/lbs of torque, while gaining as much as 26 horse power, and 34 ft/lbs of torque throughout the curve. We installed the C&L cold air intake kit along with a bama performance tune using simple hand tools in under an hour’s time, and picked up 26 horse power, and 34 ft/lbs of torque.

    Maximum Airflow. A C&L Performance Cold Air Intake kit will completely replace your V6 Mustang's restrictive factory air box and paper filter element with a high flow filter assembly to maximize airflow for a noticeable increase in horsepower, torque and performance.

    Pre-calibrate 83mm MAF Housing. This C&L Performance cold air intake kit includes a brand new cast aluminum 83mm MAF housing that is already calibrated for use with the factory fuel injectors, MAF sensor not included.

    Made in the USA. Proudly made in the USA from the highest quality materials available, this C&L Performance Cold Air Intake has been extensively flow bench tested and engineered to out perform the competition.

    Required Upgrade. Installation of this C&L Cold Air Intake will require a custom Bama tune with the use of a Mustang Handheld Tuner to reprogram the vehicles computer (ECU) for operation.

    Rechargeable High Flow Filter. Included with your C&L Cold Air Kit is a high-flow, reusable, rechargeable filter. That means no more spending money on OEM paper filters that waste money and horsepower. Just clean your C&L filter, re-oil it, and put it back on to save money and enjoy better performance in one shot.

    Easy Installation. C&L Performance Cold Air Intake kits are designed to install with just basic hand tools. No extra modifications or special tools are required for an easy 1 hour installation.

    Application. This C&L Performance Cold Air Intake System is specifically designed for use on 2005 to 2009 Mustangs equipped with the 4.0L V6 engine. Custom tuning is required for operation.

        I've had this intake in my car since 2005. I'm ready for a new air filter. Which size(s) of filter would fit my intake? I've noticed there are a few options.

        • Hello! For this intake you will need the filter with a 4 in. Inlet and 8 in. Length. You can find that replacement filter here: http://www.americanmuscle.com/cnl-4in-8in-airfilter.html

        Would I need to install a tune before or after installing this CAI?

        • The tune can be uploaded before or after the install of this intake just as long as you don't run the car with the intake installed and without a proper tune.

            Must have

            This intake and throttle body spacer and a tune added way more boost than I thought it would. Most noticeable difference is that it shifts quicker and doesn't need to drop into 3rd to get up the hills where I live anymore! The car just wants to GO now. I can't mash the gas pedal anymore because now you'll end up sideways. The difference is huge. Fuel economy is also better driving conservatively. I really love the response from pedal now it gets right down to business with the shifts. ALSO this intake makes a whistle sound when you hit the gas. Like a pshhh it's loud.. The instal was easy just slipped on a few pipe clams and bolts. Looks awesome too its a thicc intake. Im running a 92 octane tune with this intake.

            Fresh Air

            I put this product on my V-6 Mustang along with a few other go fast goodies. Stock set up, couldn't redline the car if I tried. Now I have to be careful, easily redline's and there must be some kind of safety in the system, because I have had the motor shut down a couple of times for not watching the tachometer.

            Love the CAI!

            I got this in the mail today and I absolutely love it! My BAMA tuner comes tomorrow, so right now it isn't quite running right. But after the SUPER easy install, I was able to start it and get a couple of good revvs and MAN it sounds good! And even before the tune, it has better throttle response! I can't wait to get the tune done so I can get it running right and get those extra ponies workin for me. Definitely get the combo pack with the CAI and the BAMA tuner and save yourself some money. Great first performance mod. Highly recommended!

            Best Bang for the Buck

            Got the C&L CAI with the Bama tuner for my 2006 V6 Cologne. My son and I installed it (father son time) and the 70mm throttle body spacer in about 20 minutes. The tune took about 10 minutes following the instructions, easy to install. Everything was very straight forward. Programmed the 93 octane race tune right out of the gate. Took my Pony out for a ride and all I can say is “WOW”, it is a totally new car! Jumps out of the gate, really pulls hard 3000 rpm and up. I got rubber to scratch 1st through 3rd while shifting hard, (5 speed manual), but have to back off as I live in a residential area. Best money I ever spent on the car. If you are debating, do not wait, as this will be a real eye opener when you stick the pedal to the floor! Best of all, after all the romping around…. I am getting better gas mileage than I did while stock! Everyone out there with the 4.0, do not despair and worry about what you read on the internet, the 4.0 is very stout and was made for speed, and American Muscle helps you make the most of it! Thanks AM for giving me a whole new car! Now just debating 3.73 or 4.10 gears for the rear, don’t worry, you will hold your own with the stock GT’s and Challengers out there. Love to tell them I am running a tuned V6, and don’t worry about the rice burners!

            C&L Cold Air Intake

            Great power gains and very easy install with detailed instructions. Only complaint is that the airbox is very thin plastic-looks and feels very cheap. It is secured by one bolt in the back, and in the front it is secured by tie-wrapping the box to one of your ABS lines. For this kind of money I felt I should not be tie-wrapping or dealing with a plastic airbox.

            Night and Day Difference

            Pros - Installation was straight forward with basic tools - Clear difference in performance - Looks great under the hood - The 'whistle' noise is pretty sexy Con (there's only one, but it's no big deal) - I hate cleaning the filter, that's just me Bottom Line: Get this with a tuner and you're going to be driving a completely new ride. Get it!!!

            HUGE difference

            I was hesitant to buy an air intake at first but this is one of the best upgrades I've bought for my car after spending thousands on other parts. Combined with a race tune from bama tuning it turns your v6 into an absolute beast! I have a 2005 automatic v6 and I just raced my cousin's new 2011 305 hp v6 and I killed it!
