Boosts Horsepower. An AEM Brute Force Cold Air Intake will improve the airflow into your S550 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 5.0L GT Mustangs restrictive factory air box, intake tube and paper filter element with a Dryflow filter assembly for impressive HP and TQ gains.

No Tune Required. Unlike other Cold Air Intakes on the market for the 5.0L GT 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.

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 2015-2017 GT Mustangs equipped with the 4 valve 5.0L V8 Coyote engine and does not require re-tuning the vehicles computer for operation.

Technical Note. This AEM Cold Air Intake is not legal for use in California or other states adopting California emission standards.

    engine light came on :(

    Intake worked great until after a day of brutal driving my engine light would come on and the engine would make a weird noise and I would have to slow down for the light to turn off. This happened about twice a month until I took the intake off and sure enough the light never came on again. To lazy to return so just bought a tuner instead smh. Advice buy the racer intake with a tune and save the headache

    Great Product, Fits Well

    Installed within an hour of unboxing. It fits very well, though the instructions are difficult to understand because they have been photocopied a billion times. Everything is straightforward, though. Happy with my purchase.

    Coyote Swap

    I ended up dropping a 16 coyote crate motor into my car. Knowing the factory airbox was to big after putting the car back together to be my daily driver. I looked around and Aem caught my attention, known very well in the tuner world i figured I'd give them a try and their intake fits perfect. Even though you don't have to tune it, I ran a vmp tune on the car to bring everything else I had together. I can tell how this intake helps the car some and sounds really cool. Cool product recommend for anyone else

    Good product for the price

    I love the sound of this CAI. I had one on my '14 and now have one on my '16. The gunmetal color looks good under the hood, and fits nicely into place. (The filter is a tight fit, but if you rotate it into place, it pops in easily)

    Good investment

    Took me about an hour and half to install this CAI due to my package be destroyed and taped up like a mummy from ups. My package didn't come with instructions so jumped on youtube looked how AM did it with other CAI and got it on! Throttle response is enhanced and i get better launches from a dig im overall impressed by the product and will recommend this to all my mustang friends :)

    Good Intake

    Chose this intake for a few reasons, no tune required, non-oiled air filter, it deletes the ugly sound tube, and the price. I installed it in about 30 minutes, taking pictures along the way. Fitment is good, my only complaint is the MAF sensor wire is routed through the heat shield in the same hole as the intake tube. I will keep an eye on the wiring to make sure there is no chafing. The heat shield fits great, and seems to work quite well. While cruising the IAT's stay 3-5 degrees above ambient with the A/C off and 4-8 degrees above with it on. It does get hotter than the factory box during stop and go driving, but it cools off quicker than the factory setup did once cruising speed is resumed. Overall I'm very satisfied with the fitment and quality of the intake.

    Worth it.

    I've installed a cold air intake on another vehicle, but I'm no pro. It was easy to follow the directions and took less than 30 minutes to install. The sound alone was worth the purchase price. I just bought a new vehicle and intend on putting an intake on it. One of two necessary mods for any vehicle, an intake and less restrictive muffler(s). Didn't really notice much of a performance gain, but letting the 5.0 breathe easier has to be worth something.

    Cold Air Intake

    Very easy install. Installed this in conjunction with the Poweraid Throttle Body spacer. Increased fuel milage by 2-3 mpg. Noticeable power increase.

    Really Satisfied with the product, car sounds better and it does feel a little more responsive at lower rpms. It also looks great when you open the Hood.
