    Review & Installation Video

    Review & Install Video

    Hey. I'm Alex from with my detailed review and breakdown of the aFe Pro 5R Momentum Series Cold Air Intake Kit fitting the 2015 through current Mustang GT. So, in this video, I'm gonna break down the construction and materials of this kit. We're gonna talk about what you should expect to be spending, who this might appeal to. And then, last but not least, we're gonna hit the installation. But, right off the bat, we're giving this a very easy one out of three wrenches on the difficulty meter. You should have this kit on your car at about an hour tops.So if you're the S550 owner that's just getting into modifying your car and you're looking to either make a weekend warrior, a show car, or if you're just looking to make your daily commute that much more enjoyable, I would definitely suggest checking out this kit, as you're gonna be improving your horsepower, torque and throttle response, all while having a complete and very nice to look at package under the hood.So not only is this kit gonna be a great addition for some of the aforementioned reasons but a Cold Air Intake is gonna be one of the first mods that anyone is gonna do if you're a car nut. And this is gonna drastically clean up your engine bay, all while creating a little bit of horsepower, torque and throttle response, all while not requiring a handhold tuner or a custom tune. So that being in the construction here, it's evident right out of the box that this is definitely a very well-built kit.We're gonna see that aFe is gonna have this comprised predominantly of roto-molded plastic construction featuring a free-flowing filter as well as having a unique one piece air box which is gonna have a small window right upfront here, so you can look in and see just how dirty or clean your filter is. So the filter itself is gonna feature a polyurethane frame as well as having five layers of progressively finer gauze.Now, this gauze within this filter is gonna be oiled to ensure that you're gonna get the best amount of performance as well as ensuring that it will filter out any type of contaminants from getting into your engine. So another great feature about the filter itself is that this is gonna be a washable and reusable filter. So once 10,000 to 15,000 miles down the road comes along and you take a look in this little window right here and it's time to pull this, simply all you need to do is just take this down, pull it out, wash it, re-oil it and you're good to go.So, right off the bat, one of the first things that you're to see about this kit is that it's gonna feature the unique one piece air box design. Now, most if not all of S550 Cold Air Intake Kits are gonna feature this design. I actually think it's pretty cool looking. Not only that, you're gonna have a little window right up here to check and see what kind of condition your filter is in, just to make sure it's not getting too dirty.So another great aspect about this kit, in my opinion, is the fact that aFe had this engineered to work hand-in-hands with the channel that's gonna be built into the stock S550's grill. So that essentially means that you're gonna be forcing cooler and denser air into your intake which essentially is going to equate to better performance. Now, I do wanna add that most if not all of the S550 Cold Air Intake Kits are going to be a no tune required setup.Now, that's gonna be due predominantly because of the design of the mass air flow here. Now, I wanna make sure you guys know that this kit is only going to yield high single-digit gains. And if you're really looking to maximize the most amount of power possible, I would definitely suggest checking out a custom tune or a handheld tuner as they're essentially going to work hand-in-hand together.So in terms of the pricing here, you should expect to be spending right around 430 bucks for this kit. Now, all that's gonna be towards the top of the spectrum. You're to be getting away with a very nice-looking kit under the hood that is sure to turn heads as well as picking up a marginal amount of performance. So, again, just by looking at the construction of this kit for the unique one piece air box, it's gonna have the window right here, roto-molded plastic construction, the free-flowing filter, and even down to the silicone couplers as well as clamps. This is definitely a very well-built kit, in my opinion.Now, there's definitely a few other options out there for less. But I think this kit is honestly worth its weight in gold just by how it feels in my hands as well as tinkering around with it here in the shop. So in terms of the installation here, this is definitely not rocket science. And just like I had said in the beginning of the video, you're looking at a very easy one out of three wrenches on the difficulty meter and about an hour tops to get this onto your Mustang.So the installation alone is definitely gonna be a large selling point for me as, like I said before, this is not brain surgery or rocket science. You are merely pulling off your factory intake and swapping it out for this one. The installation alone is incredibly easy. So with a little bit of elbow grease and a little bit of patience you're gonna have this on your Mustang in about an hour tops.So one last bit here is that I would definitely make sure that after everything is installed, make sure your connections are all buttoned up and secured tightly. In the event that they're not, you're probably gonna throw a check engine light and it's only gonna be for a vacuum line, so just make sure that everything is on secured and tight.All right. So just to wrap things up here, this intake from aFe has a simple yet effective design that, in my opinion, is definitely one of the more attractive looking options out there for the S550. Once you pop your hood, you're definitely gonna have some questions, especially in terms of this window right here. Now, not only is that gonna be a cool conversation piece but it's gonna give you the ability, again, to check your filter and make sure that it's in great condition.So, again, for the quality of materials, having a free-flowing filter that's gonna last a lifetime, as well as improving your performance, this is a no-brainer for me. So that's my review and breakdown of the aFe Momentum Pro 5R Cold Air Intake Kit fitting the 2015 through current S550 GT available right here at

    Increase Power And Performance. It doesn't matter if your Mustang is a daily driver or a dedicated track car an increase in horsepower and torque is always a plus. You can add the extra power you crave by simply installing an Advanced Flow Engineering (AFE) Momentum GT Pro 5R Cold Air Intake.
    The Momentum GT Cold Air Intake replaces the restrictive stock air box and paper filter element with a one-piece air box and a free flowing Pro 5R filter assembly. This Intake will improve the airflow path into your GT's engine creating more usable power and better fuel economy.

    No Tune Required. This AFE Momentum GT Pro 5R Cold Air Intake is designed to improve the performance of your coyote powered GT without the need of reprogramming your Mustang computer. By utilizing state of the art computer-aided designs this AFE Intake will increase power using the factory tune.

    Pro 5R Air Filter. The included Pro 5R air filter is engineered to effectively filter out minuscule power robbing particulates while maintaining excellent air flow. Pro 5R air filters feature a polyurethane frame with 5-layers of progressively finer mesh cotton gauze oiled media to ensure superior filtration and outstanding engine protection. Best of all the Pro 5R air filter is re-usable, just wash, re-oil and re-use.

    Unique One-Piece Air Box. This AFE Momentum GT Cold Air Intake features a custom CAD designed one-piece roto-molded air intake housing to increase airflow. Utilizing the factory cold air ducting to draw cooler air from the grille, the Momentum GT air box outflows the factory intake by an impressive 25%. One of the cooler features of the Momentum GT air box is the clear plexiglass window. This window not only adds eye catching appeal, but makes it easy to check your filters condition with just a glance.

    Straight Forward Installation. Designed to be a direct fit replacement for the factory intake this AFE Momentum GT Pro 5R Cold Air Intake installs with just basic hand tools. No extra modifications or special tools are required for an easy 1 hour installation. All necessary parts and instructions are included.

    Recommended Upgrade. Even though a re-tune is not required for operation, AmericanMuscle recommends a custom tune with a Mustang Handheld Tuner. By reprogramming the vehicles computer (ECU) to you will get the best possible power and performance increases from this cold air intake.

    Application. This AFE Momentum GT Cold Air Intake System with Pro 5R filter is specifically designed to fit the 2015-2017 GT Mustangs equipped with the coyote 5.0L DOHC V8 engine. The included Pro 5R filter is blue in color.

    Technical Note. This AFE Cold Air Intake is not CARB certified at this time therefore it is not legal for use in California or other states adopting California emission standards.

        Questions & Answers (4)

        4 Top Rated Questions

        How do I oil it and what kind of oil do I use?

        • There are simple "recharge" kits that are common at local auto parts stores and the like. It's just a matter of cleaning and oiling it back up, and these kits will always come with instructions upon this, however it's generally straight forward.

        Is this intake compatible with the gt350 intake manifold with the 87mm throttle body? Or do I need to look under gt350?

        • Yes, this intake is compatible with the GT350 manifold and 87mm throttle body.

        How do you get the air filter out to clean it do you have to take the whole box out or is there a lid on there that snaps down

        • Unfortunately, there is not a lid that is big enough to where you can take the filter out of the housing. You would need to remove the housing in order to remove the filter from the housing and then reinstall everything back in once the filter is clean.

        will this work with the gt350 intake manifold and blowfish adapter with the bbl 85 mm throttle body?

        • Yes, that setup would indeed be compatible with the use of this AFE Momentum GT Pro 5R Cold Air Intake.

            Awesome intake from AFE

            This is the second AFE Momentum GT series intake I have used and the fitment is fantastic, intake air temps sit 4-8 degrees Fahrenheit above ambient temperature when cruising vs the MMR intake I had prior which was usually 25-30 degrees above ambient. The provided filter has massive surface area.

            My 2016 GT Ran Very Poorly with this Intake

            I recently bought a 2016 GT with very low miles. It had a Steeda cold air intake on it and did not come with the factory airbox. I wanted a closed box intake and picked the aFe Momentum GT Pro 5R. I had it installed by a ASC certified mechanic at my local Ford dealer. With the aFe intake on the car, it ran very poorly. It would stall a few times on a cold start. Acceleration was jerky with the car gaining and losing power. They went over the installation and verified a proper install with no vacuum leaks. The mechanic said he thought the intake had a defect in design of the air tube where the MAF sensor is positioned, which most likely resulted in turbulence in the air flow. They put the Steeda air intake back on the car and it ran perfectly again.

            I ordered this and it came in sooner than expected thanks to American Muscle! This is the best purchase I've made to my mustang GT. Super easy to install. Did it myself and it took about 40 minutes. Ran a custom tune with a performance division here and this thing is night and day better!!! You have to get this! Had the AirAid before I think this one is better! Has a deeper growl inside the cabin!

            A really good Looking CAI

            Product delivery came a day early - So the entire experience started off on the right foot. Install time was a half hour or so, and everything fit very well. The kit was easy to put together, and to install, with minimal effort or issues. I'd love to say from the seat of my pants how many HP I may have gained, but honestly I can't - But I can say without any shred of doubt that my throttle response has greatly improved. I coupled this install with the Roush Axle Backs, did that install right after the Cold Air Intake, so any and all gains are from the combination of mods. I did not go for any tuner/flash/chip upgrades - and I am not disappointed, and actually feel glad as I still have 75,000miles of warranty. So, they only thing I lost was a muffler warranty by Ford ( Big Deal ). Kit looks nice, and I am happy with it ! Together, my 16 GT is running happier, sounds amazing, and performance is improved enough to feel it - I'm 100 satisfied !

            Very Pleased

            First time I ever installed a CAI and I am an over protective Mustang Daddy, so it took me more time to install than it should have. It took just under 1 hour and most of that time was spent trying to tighten everything down. Probably should be a 30-45 minute job. It really isn't that tough. It is a tight fit getting all of the hoses on and the couplers on (and I already removed the sound tube) but with a little patience, it went together nice. It does make for a throatier sound (what I was looking for) and it seems like I have a little better throttle response, especially in the mid range but I honestly can't say it is night and day. It's real benefits will be more apparent when other mods a tune and exhaust soon as I figure out how to sneak them past the wife. I can say this product is solid and shows quality. I am very happy I went with the AFE.

            5 2015 GT - Jj Installation Time: Less than 1 Hour


            Ive had this for over a week on my car and you can feel the difference, It seems to produce more torque gains than other CAI (when looking at dyno numbers from online), and you can feel a huge difference in the low to mid range power. It wakes the car up and pulls a lot harder from 2000rpm all the way to redline in any gear. The only annoying thing while installing is trying to not break the plastic pins from factory to remove the hoses and relocate the MAF sensor. I also gained over 2mpg, but who cares about fuel economy when it comes to the 5.0, the torque is the selling point, and torque=fun

            Nice intake

            This is the second AFE intake I've purchased. They make great looking, high quality parts. Keeps a near oem look while allowing your car to breathe much better. Apparently the 2017 has less hoses on the intake near the throttle body so I had to cap a couple of the fittings but otherwise has worked quite well.
