    Review & Install Video

    Hey everybody, Dave from Bama performance, and today I have an Airaid cold air intake kit, designed for your 05-09 Mustang GT. This kit comes with everything you’re going to need, including a tube insert, the tube itself, all the clamps, and a new heat shield and filter. Now something you might have noticed just by looking at it, this features a sleek, black design, right on down through the couplers. Something you might not have noticed, is this kit includes an insert, now this insert goes inside the tube, and slightly restricts flow, allowing you to run this kit on your 05-09 GT, right out of the box, with no tune required, and still see a good performance gain. But if you’re looking for maximum gains like we are today, we’re going to remove the insert, and put this on our 05 GT, and get some serious dyn numbers. But before we do that, let’s get our stock GT up there and see what our baseline performance numbers are. We produced 257 horse power and 285 ft/lbs of torque. So we just ran the car stock and immediately took that intake off and installed our Airaid all black cold air intake kit. We installed a 93 Octane Bama race tune, here’s what this will do for you, it’ll give the optimized spark timing, adjusts your variable cam timing, give you a perfect air/fuel ratio, and dramatically improve your throttle response. We re-ran it with the Bama tune. Showing up with an additional 27 horse power and 26 ft/lbs of torque.

    Increase horsepower and torque. Airaid Cold Air Intake Systems are computer designed to give your engine maximum air flow, which translates to more horsepower, torque and improved fuel efficiency. Airaid intakes are dyno tested and tuned for maximum performance and efficiency.

    Superior Filtration. This cold air intake not only improves horsepower, but it also provides superior air filtration, since it includes an Airaid Premium Filter with SynthaFlow® technology. SynthaFlow® is a synthetic nano-fiber material that traps the smallest dirt particles down to 2 microns in size that ordinary cotton-gauze "performance" filters just can't capture. And best of all Airaid Premium Filters are washable and re-usable saving you money. 

    Modular Venturi Tube (MVT). This Cold Air Intake does not require a tune when installed with the included "Modular Venturi Tube". The Modular Venturi Tube (MVT) can be removed for off-road use only.

    CARB Certified. Best of all this Airaid Mustang FIPK Air Intake Kit is 50-state smog legal under Carb EO# D-609-18. for April 2005 through 2006 GT models. Unfortunately the Cold Air Intake is not CARB Certified for the 2007 to 2009 models.

    This Airaid Cold Air Intake with a SynthaFlow Oiled Filter is designed to fit the 2005-2009 Mustang GT. No computer re-tune is required with the Modular Venturi Tube is installed.

        How much gain w/out a tune? Is it worth it? I have a drop in k&n filter in my stock airbox. Would it be worth it to get a cai system w/out a tune bc im trying to avoid getting a tune. Will it still increase the airflow to make a difference in sound and performance over the k&n drop in filter? Im mainly looking for a deeper sound, better fuel economy, and a few more hps. Thanks

        • Yes, It will increase air flow a bit and you will get that old school deep sound from under the hood when you get on the gas. If I were you I would get one like the no tune required Air Raid. It has a insert called a Modular Venturi Tube which restricts the air flow just enough to not require a tune. Then if you should decide to get a tune you just remove the insert and you have a full race CAI that requires a tune. The best of both wolds. Because trust me down the road you will want a tune.

        If I buy the sct tuner and this cai is there a tune on the sct ready for it and with the tunes on the sct Will i need to keep the restrictor on or take it off

        • If you are using the pre-loaded SCT tunes you will need to keep the restrictor on. However, if you have custom tunes once you get a tune update you can run with the restrictor off.

        Will the engine/intake be noticeably louder with this intake installed w/o a tune? And does it increase exhaust volume too or just intake volume?

        • No, theAiraid MXP Series Cold Air Intake w/ SynthaFlow Oiled Filter will not cause a noticeable difference in engine/intake sound. This will just increase the intake volume.

        If I buy the sct tuner and I run this intake is there a preloaded tune for with the restriction on. And is there one with out the restriction on

        • The SCT tuner would have a pre-loaded tune for this intake with the venturi tube insert in. However, with the insert removed then you will need a custom tune.

        If i bought this intake and removed the venturi tube would it be the same intake as the tune required airaid race intake? I would like this one better if so cause i could run it with the stock tune some or airaid induction tune with the venturi tube removed.

        • Unfortunately, this intake and the Airaid race intake would not be the same item regardless of the venturi tube. However, with the venturi tube removed and a tune installed you would be able to see gains close to what the race intake would get you.

            Great Product

            The guys and gals from American Muscle really hooked me up with this product, I had bought another cold air intake that said no tune required, but kept throwing codes for being too lean. This was an easy install and no tune required and no codes coming up. Nice part is if I do decide to tune later all I do is slide the internal sleeve out.

            Easy I instalment

            Putting aside the fact that this air filter is a great addition to helping you pony breath. Installing it took. o more than 30 minutes. Since I have I installed a tuned to GT, it drives with such an impressive flow. I highly recommend making this filter an addition if you are looking for more horsepower with no problems like aggressive shifting. You have a loyal customer.

            Fits just about perfect! Only comment was about the bottom bolt for the guard, didn't fit super perfect so it would rattle a little, just put a rubber washer and no rattle. The engine sounds a lot better! The Quality of the parts is great, I really do think they made this intake good! It looks awesome under the hood too! I've had several comments on how beefy and huge this intake is. I definitely do recommend this Intake!

            Feels Great

            I have been a mechanic and a mustang enthusiast for 5 years, this product is great, I love the fact that you can leave it without tune but if you ever do decide to tune it's just a quick adjustment. I can definitely feel the power specially on 3rd gear (manual). Also sounds like a beast with my pipes full off road x pipe and violators. I recommend this to anyone who wants to give their pony some power and clean air...install took about 30m with few basic tool, the only small thing I did not like was the thick heavy hose for the breathing valve that I had to cut down size...but not a big deal at all its very minor.

            Well performance and sound

            It performed very well and sounded very nice. It has a great design. The only thing I didn't like was the breather hose, it was too bulky, heavy and long..have to cut it and make it fit...but not a big deal it doesn't affect anything. I'm a master mechanic it only took about 20 minutes with the right tools, it's very basic to install shouldn't take more than an hour. Over all I'm very happy it's a great choice I recommend this over KandN for a V8.
