    Reusable Dry Air Filter. AEM Dryflow air filters are made from an oil-free, synthetic filter media for outstanding air flow, filtration, and performance. They are washable and re-usable and can be used for up to 100,000 miles before servicing (depending on driving conditions).

    How easy is it to modify to fit the 2008 ? Maybe some guidance ? Or is it easier to just return and get the model mentioned above ?

    • We can only confirm fitment for the 05-06 Mustang GT's and we would be unable to confirm fitment for your make and model. For our selection that has been confirmed to fit for your 2008 GT please check out selection linked here:

    This will not fit 2008 ? What is the difference ?

    • Several minor changes were made to allow this to be a perfect fit for each of the different year ranges. AEM chose to do this split to prevent a more universal fit, or requiring minor changes where parts are included but not needed, or ports need to be capped. We offer this intake for 2007-2009 Mustangs at the link below:

      Review from AEM Brute Force Cold Air Intake - Polished (05-06 GT)

      Looks and Sounds Awesome !!

      Looks and sounds awesome. Took a couple of hours to get it in just right. Our only negitive: we wish it had a better looking heat shield.

      Easy install, instructions weren't so clear but i managed to do the install without it. Engine bay looks so much nicer with it and i can feel some power gain with no tune. Recommend this for all s197s

      Great starter mod

      The fit was perfect and the finish on the tubing was awesome. Everything bolted right up in about half an hour and the gains were noticeable immediately. You can hear the intake inhaling when you step on the gas and you will definitely feel the extra kick. Great mod if you are starting out and will be an easy install even if you are not mechanically experienced. Highly suggest!

      Awesome intake

      Great addition under the hood. Looks and sounds great when you put your foot into it. Simple instructions and installation took a little over an hour. Highly recommend.

      Review from AEM Brute Force Cold Air Intake - Polished (05-06 GT)

      Cold Air

      All in all a great product...A perfect fit and definitely makes a difference. Car is much more throatier and has a nice sound when driving. Although the wrong heat shield came with the cold air American Muscle made sure the correct one was recieved with no hassle. Great team to buy from.

      06 GT 4.6 AEM CAI installed

      The first one had defective MAF screw threads, snapped a screw, got replacement ssent after a bit of insisting (threads were not deep enough and wrong thread) got replacement pack of 4 MAF screws( it only takes 2) from dealer for $8, American Muscle really needs to update their install instructions, and tips, (breather tube is plastic, not metal, hard to insert all the way, use some grease and a socket to push in all the way) I got better ones from AEM site. Sounds great and definitely better off the line, will see if any better mpg, had it up to 100 mph but ran out of road, lol So far so good though, seat covers next! P.S. no tune required for AEM P.P.S. I'd give it 2 hour install, take your time and make sure all fits

      Very Satisfied

      It was an easy install that probably took me about 20 -30 minutes to do, I instantly noticed a difference with my gas, power and of course sound. I highly recommend this product for a relatively cheap upgrade that is pretty noticeable.
