Boosts Horsepower. An AEM Brute Force Cold Air Intake will improve the airflow into your S197 Mustang's engine for more power and better gas mileage all while filtering out harmful power robbing particles. This AEM CAI kit completely replaces your 4.0L V6 Mustangs restrictive factory air box, intake tube and paper filter element with a Dryflow filter assembly for a noticeable increase in rear wheel horsepower and torque.

No Tune Required. Unlike other Cold Air Intakes on the market for the 4.0L V6 Mustangs the AEM Brute Force CAI does not require a computer re-tune. The engineers at AEM designed, tuned, and dyno-tested this cold air intake to improve your Pony's power using the stock tune.

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).

Made in the USA. Manufactured in the USA from CNC mandrel-bent 6061 aluminum piping to assure smooth unrestricted airflow, this AEM cold air intake tube is completed in a Gunmetal Gray powder-coated finish for long lasting corrosion resistance and impressive good looks.

Lifetime Warranty. AEM is so confident in their cold air intake system that it is covered by a Lifetime Limited Warranty.

Easy Bolt-on Installation. AEM 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.

CARB Certified. Best of all this Mustang AEM Brute Force Cold Air Intake Kit is 50-state smog legal under Carb EO# D-670-15.

Recommended Upgrade. Even though a re-tune is not required for operation, AmericanMuscle recommends a Bama custom tune with a Mustang Handheld Tuner to reprogram the vehicles computer (ECU) to get the best performance possible out of this cold air intake.

Application. This AEM Gunmetal Gray Brute Force Cold Air Intake System is specifically designed to fit the 2005 to 2009 Mustangs equipped with the 4.0L V6 engine and does not require re-tuning the vehicles computer for operation.

How much of a gain in horsepower and torque does this product give?

How much horsepower and torque could this cold air intake produce with a bama tune?


  • We do not have the specifics as much as horsepower and torque for this intake as location, climate, and other modification you have done to your vehicle will all play important variables as to what this intake could make as far as pairing it with a Bama tune.
