Boosts Horsepower. An AEM Brute Force Cold Air Intake will improve the airflow into your Foxbody 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 V8 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 5.0L 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 factory 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 SCT Eliminator Chip to reprogram the vehicles computer (ECU) to get the best performance possible out of this cold air intake.

Application. This AEM Brute Force Cold Air Intake System is specifically designed to fit the 1987 to 1993 LX, GT and SVT Cobra Mustangs equipped with the 5.0L V8 engine and does not require re-tuning the vehicles computer for operation.

Not for non MAF cars

Website does not indicate that this only fits MAF cars but I like the looks of it so I am making an adapter and a support bracket to fit my non MAF 5.0.

Would I have to buy a MAF for my 87 5.0?

ShaneW

  • No, you would not need to add a MAF for your 87 mustang, however, you would need the BBK speed density CAI adapter item number 56046 as the 86-88 mustangs were speed density. https://www.americanmuscle.com/bbk-speed-density-cai-adapter.html

I want it but.... I was about to check out and it says that this item has a CARB Compliance but it gives an eo# on the product's page, does that mean that I can just ignore the CARB compliance and install it in my car? I live in California by the way

EnriqueF

  • Hello! The AEM Brute Force Cold Air Intake is CARB Compliant, and legal to install on an emission controlled vehicle in California.

I have an 89 Saleen and the BBK hits the strut tower bar. Will this go under it?

SeanJ

  • Hello! The AEM Brute Force Cold Air Intake should clear most strut tower bars. However, we cannot guarantee fitment, as it is not specifically designed for use with a strut tower bar.
