    Review & Installation Video

    Hi I’m Justin with AmericanMuscle.com, and I’m going to be breaking down Airaid’s Cold air, and race cold air intake, fitting the 2011 and newer Mustang GT. At first glance it would appear that both of these intakes from Airaid are identical, and that’s because they pretty much are, both intakes feature the same molded high density polyethelene tube and heat shield, the same black couplers, and the same massive SynthaFlow filter, but there is one exception and that would be this removable, modular Venturi insert, that is included with the regular version of the airaid, but is not included with the race version. When installed, the insert reduces the air flow enough so that you can run this intake on your Coyote motor without the need for a performance tune, and still make more power over your stock airbox. With the insert removed however you’re letting more air into the engine and it’s at that point the performance tune becomes required. That makes the Race intake from Airaid an excellent choice for the Mustang owner that already has a tune in place, on the other hand if you’re on a budget and you’re not ready to pull the trigger on a tune just yet, the regular Airaid may be the better option. Install the intake with the included insert, then enjoy some decent gains until you’re ready for a tune. At that point remove the insert, upload your tune, and you’re instantly on your way to making more power. With our baseline runs already out of the way, we want to see just how much power we can expect when using these intakes. Of course since we’re looking for the biggest gains possible, we’re going to run the Airaid without the insert installed and pair it up with one of our custom Bama tunes. Installing the Airaid onto your car is an easy enough task for any backyard mechanic to tackle, in about an hour’s time using basic hand tools. The custom Bama tune is going to do a lot of things for our GT, including tweaking your fuel ratios, optimize our spark timing, and adjust our variable cam timing. The tune should also help our automatic here with increased shift firmness and adjustable shift points. With the Airaid installed and the tune uploaded let’s make another hit here on the Dyno and see what the results are. Our baseline run with our automatic 2011 GT gave us 336 horsepower and 302 ft/lbs of torque, with our Airaid and Bama combination we put down 362 horsepower and 336 ft/lbs of torque making for a peak gain of 33 horsepower over our baseline numbers, and gains of 36 horsepower and 60 ft/lbs of torque throughout the curve. So that wraps up my review of the cold air intake and race intake from Airaid, whether you already have a tune, or you’re planning on picking one up down the road, Airaid’s two options make it a whole lot easier to pick the ideal option for your setup, and as always they can both be found right here at AmericanMuscle.com

    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 better fuel efficiency. This Airaid CAI kit completely replaces your 2011-2014 GT Mustangs restrictive factory air box and paper filter element with a high flow Airaid filter assembly for an increase of 36 more horsepower and 62 more torque at the rear wheels.

    No Tune Required. Unlike other Cold Air Intakes on the market for the 2011-2014 GT Mustangs, the Airaid CAI does not require a computer re-tune when installed with the included "Modular Venturi Tube". The Modular Venturi Tube (MVT) can be removed for off-road use when combined with a custom tune. By utilizing state of the art computer-aided designs, Airaid Intake Systems offer unmatched fit, finish, and power!

    Superior Filtration. Each cold air intake 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 that ordinary cotton-gauze "performance" filters just can't capture. Airaid Premium Filters, with SynthaFlow® can capture particulates down to 2 microns in size. Best of all, Premium Filters are washable and re-usable saving you money.

    Application. This Airaid Cold Air Intake System is specifically designed to fit the 2011-2014 5.0L GT Mustangs and does not require re-tuning the vehicles computer when installed with the included "Modular Venturi Tube."

      Easy install and well worth the money

      Must admit that the cost of a CAI vs. what I thought I'd get out of it didn't seem practical. Boy was I wrong. My 2013 Mustang GT along with a Bama tune (93octane race) now has more giddyup than I'll ever use. High end, low end and everything in-between. Can't say how this performs without a tune however. Also, our cars must pass an emissions test every 2 years. A nice feature of this CAI is that I can simply install the venturi sleeve, put my stock tune back on, pass the test, then remove the sleeve and re-tune. I WAS considering a throttle body and intake manifold but I see no need unless I want a 1/4 mile dragster (which I don't). Well worth the money.

      Good Quality Construction

      Kit came with decent instructions ( You can find some better instructions on their website! ) Quick and easy install, can take longer if you don't know what you're doing. Happy with the results, immediately noticeable difference from the stock airbox ( Is not choking out your intake like stock ).

      Amazing with insert left in!!!!

      I have had zero issues with performance of car with the air-restrictor left in. Performance difference is minute, however, the swoosh from the intake and the knowledge of more air being inhaled is enough for me. Once I am ready to open up my engine for more mods, I will be happy to remove restrictor and get it tuned. Fantastic for a guy/girl looking to add a little knowing more to come is down the road!

      Best First Mod

      Longest part is the assembly of the intake, but very easy. Afterwards it is pretty straight forward when the actual install occurs. Took less than 30 mins and you can def hear the engine difference compared to the stock intake, tuning only makes it better and sound meaner. Trust me, it’s pretty easy. Merica

      EASIEST WAY TO GET MORE HORSEPOWER

      Great product, easy install, no tune needed. Not much of a sound difference that I can hear but she definitely has more torque. Happy with this purchase and the best bang for the buck.

      Very pleased

      I was very pleased with this intake. Could definitely feel a difference in power gain and smoothness. I recommend getting a tune, because you can feel the full power it added. The install was relatively easy, a couple confusing bits but nothing too difficult. Also for those of you wondering YES it whistles!

      Great CAI

      I wanted to purchase this AIRAID CAI for a long time now. I finally was in a situation in which I could purchase it. The great benefits of this CAI are that it makes the car sounds better, increases horsepower, and the throttle is much more sensitive. I felt a huge difference after putting in this CAI. The car breaths better and the overall performance is great! Not to mention it also looks great underneath the hood. There are some negatives, but not with the CAI itself. The first one was that the instructions and pictures looked like they were printed in the 1800s. You can barely see the pictures. The second negative which really bothered me was that they did not include the modular tube. I installed the CAI with my friend and then realized that they did not give me the air restrictor. I got onto the live chat and they told me that they will send it out. I expected them to overnight it because it was their fault. But instead, it took 2 weeks and my car drove without the restrictor for that long. When I finally did get the box, they had sent me the wrong part. Instead of the modular tube, I just got the CAI tube. So for a month now I have been driving without the modular tube or tune. I am not experiencing any problems so far with it. But I highly recommend you check whats in the box before you start installing it. I expected American Muscle to send me everything.. I thought wrong.

      Good Quality

      I put this on without a tune thinking I would gain a tad bit of power. Even with the insert installed I’m feeling a loss in pull on the lower end. I put the stock air box back on and will save the kit until I’m ready to pull the trigger on a tune. The kit went on easy with no issues.

      Love it!

      Easy install!! Product was solid and fit well. Looks great in the engine bay. Engine seems to breath easier and its nice to hear the air getting sucked in with this new filter. Seems to be a bit quicker off the line from a stop. OVERALL: Very happy with it!!! I have not done a tune yet but plan to after a few other mods (so for now leave perf gain as a 4 star). The black and white instructions were a bit difficult to get through as the pictures were not clear (I resorted to pulling up an Airaid install video to help). I definitely recommend removing the "resonator tube" as my cabin noise was already a bit to loud. I did some quick online research and it appears this tube is literally nothing more than a silly Ford gimmick to pump some engine noise into the cabin. I did notice a difference immediately and my engine bay is a bit cleaner.

      Install Easy

      Easy to install. Be sure to have a metric socket kit. Even though this is an American car, it uses some metric bolts. Go figure. After install, cranked the engine and took for a spin. Noticeable increase in acceleration reaction and a little more pep. Waiting for my Bama tunes.
