      Review & Installation Video

      Justin from, we're here with Chris Thompson from Airaid. He stopped by the shop to tell us a little more about these great Airaid products. We're very familiar with Airaid; we use them on our project cars with great success. Chris, what can you tell us about Airaid that makes it so unique? "Everything we do is digitally designed. It's engineered to fit, it's engineered to work, it's engineered to work without any special tuning. Now, tuning is much, much better. You guys offer a lot of great choices in aftermarket tuning. It'll only enhance the performance of the Mustang. We design our intakes so there's no special gluing required, there's no cutting or hacking of the engine required. If somebody decided to put a stock intake back on, they don't have to go back to Ford to buy another part to put the piece back on. Every intake we do is digitally designed. It's all about the design of the airflow and the linear charge to the throttle body. We use the rotational molding not so much for the heat soaking, but for the shape of the tube we can come up with. By using the rotational molding, it allows us to really give the right shape and form to make sure the product works well." We're very excited—we've got our 2013 Mustang here, probably not even 10 miles on this thing yet, and we already have an Airaid intake on it. Tell us a little more about that. "This is awesome. We're really excited to be here today. This is the first Airaid intake on a 2013 Mustang. We're really excited to be here with you guys. As you can see it fits. We know for sure it fits. We believe we have a hit. We'll do a little bit more testing on it before we release it to the public, but that should happen anytime now." Now, you were telling me earlier, you're working with some legends in the Mustang world. "Well, we're excited about working with Parnelli Jones and his son PJ. Parnelli's been instrumental in helping us come along with the Boss 302 intakes we're trying to develop. Nobody knows the heritage of the Boss 302 better than Parnelli Jones. We worked with PJ on the side by side utility vehicles (Razors, Rhinos, and TRX's). We also sponsored him in the past on his endeavors in the American Le Mans Series, which he ran last year." Chris, thank you so much for educating us on your great Airaid products. And as always, you can find those great Airaid products 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 V6 Mustangs restrictive stock air box and paper filter element with a high flow Airaid filter assembly for an increase of more horsepower and more torque at the rear wheels.

      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. And best of all Airaid's Premium Filters are washable and re-usable, saving you money.

      CARB Certified. Best of all this, Airaid Cold Air Intake is 50-state smog legal under Carb EO# D-609-15.

      No Tune Required. This Airaid Intake is designed to improve your V6 powered Pony's performance without requiring computer reprogramming. Adding power just doesn't get any easier or more affordable.

      Application. This Airaid Cold Air Intake System is specifically designed to fit the 2011-2014 V6 Mustangs with the 3.7L V6 engine. No tune is required.

        Recommend easy installation

        Very easy to install, notice a deeper louder sound around 3-4K rpm and takes off much faster no delay when gears switch I also feel like it brakes better but that could be a placebo effect.

        fit good

        fit right into place, the instructions were good. don't expect any performance gains but it does make a cool sound while accelerating. if you have an air temp display it will show warmer then the stock closed airbox.

        Nice Intake

        It is a tight fit, but looks perfect once installed. Feel a little performance difference without a tune. Will get a BAMA tuner soon and see how well it will work with a tune.

        Tricky install, significant difference

        I’ve been wanting a CAI for a long time, and I’m glad I finally did. The reason for the missing star is due to the installation. On the 2014 3.7, it is very difficult in two places: the first being putting the coupler onto the throttle body itself, and second: lining up the intake hose to the throttle body and the air box at the same time. There was a lot of hard shoving, and definitely some cursing, when installing the intake hose. However, after calming down, cooling off, and taking it for a ride, it was well worth it. Even with the minor struggles, it was still installed in less than an hour. Some advice: some sort of light grease may help put the coupler on the throttle body. I didn’t use any, but I’ve read other people did that, and it went on much easier. This product looks better, and I immediately noticed better throttle response and a smoother idle. I did not pair this with a tune, just the intake itself.

        Great Responsiveness

        First true mod I’ve done to the car and it’s wonderful. Really enhances throttle response and makes the exhaust sound a little better. Love the whistle it makes throughout acceleration!

      Will this intake cause the check engine light to come on? I've have seen a lot of situations where the CAI causes the check engine light to come on when installed without a tuner, do the airaids avoid that issue?

      • No not at all you'll be fine I installed mine in 30 mins or less and have had no issues like that.

      What will be a better cold air intake for my 2012 mustang v6 I want an intake that will increase my horse power and torque higher than the other cold air intakes.

      • Usually, I go with the product on the project cars AM makes. It's always the best bang for your buck. I have a blacked out 2012 V6 Mustang, and the majority of mods do to my car are their projects here on AM, to include this CAI. I was very surprised at the power gain for the money. And the sound, the engine breathes SO much better, I'd have bought it for that roar alone. I'd recommend this product over the more expensive competitors, price and performance. This CAI should be the first upgrade anyone does to their 2011-2012 Mustang.

      • Nope. I bought this exact one and it is a simple bolt on and enjoy product. I have never heard of a check engine light coming on because of this product. I bought it, reviewed it and submitted pictures. I give it a 5/5.

      Does this effect the digital readout on the 14 mustang for air temp in? I just bought a 2014 V-6. On the dash, one of the gauges is the air inlet temp. Will this effect that reading on it? I dont know yet where the sensor is, but if in the airbox, i assume it would not work any longer?

      • No, this will not alter the intake air temp components. The IAT sensor is mounted in the lower grill opening. The only thing mounted in the stock airbox is the MAF sesnsor, and that transfers over to the Airaid.

      Will a CAI and tune void my factory warranty? will there be a problem with my warranty if I put a CAI and tune to my mustang v6 2012?

      • With 2010-down Mustangs, the dealer can't tell that the PCM was flashed once you go back to stock. With a 2011+ Mustang, they can. Regardless, this shouldn't matter, because AM & Bama would never recommend trying to trick the dealer. If you're honest with them, it will go a long way! Call around to some local dealers and speak to the Service Managers about the mods you have planned and what they recommend doing. Having mods won't stop your car from being accepted for warranty work that isn't affected directly by the mods. If you have a dash rattle, or a squeaky control arm, they can't deny it because you have a cold air intake and tune. A mod can only void the warranty if the root cause of the failure/issue is proven to be directly caused by the mod. This is all detailed even further here: The only reason you should put the car back to stock before bringing it back to the dealer is to avoid having them write over your custom tune, leaving the programmer locked. Hope this helps!

      I've been reading about this venturi tube that you're suppose to use when you don't tune your car with this intake. For my case I never received this tube and don't see it in the images above.
