    Review & Installation Video

    Hi I’m Justin with, 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

    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.

    Not CARB Certified.This is not CARB certified, therefore not legal for sale or use in California, or any state adopting California's emissions standards.

    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."

            Before getting this system I would have a lag in throttle response. Now I’m getting all the power I need and then some, without a tune!!. Best system out there. Also made the exhaust a little louder in my opinion. I have Outlaws Axle and Scavenger X Pipe

            Great buy

            WOW, I was surprised by how much this changes the tone of the car. My GT is mostly stock but after installing this CAI the exhaust is a lot more throaty and beefier. Its awesome. I can hear the engine sucking in air like a frikin dragon! The performance difference with a 93 octane tune is defiantly noticeable and the throttle response is very welcomed. Well worth the buy. I would strongly recommend lurkers get a tune as well. Installation was super easy. The prep was bit of a trial if you haven't done this before but not insane. The grommets are a bit of work to fit into the holes.I prepped the assembly the night before in my house. and did the removal and install the next day after work. stress free. Also if you have the strut bar you'll have to remove that as well.

            I was always skeptical about cold air intakes and power gains...but man was I wrong. Paired with a Bama tune it feels like another 20-30 HP added. Can highly recommend this product.

            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.

Happy with the results, immediately noticeable difference from the stock airbox ( Is not choking out your intake like stock ).
