    Justin from AmericanMuscle.com, 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 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 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.

    Note: Coupon codes cannot be applied to this product.

    Technical Notes. Will not fit with throttle body spacers.

    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.

    COLD AIR INTAKE DO I NEED TO CHANGE THE OCTANE(85) FOR THIS COLD AIR INTAKE .IF NOT THATS GREAT . IF I BUY ONE AND THE CHECK ENGINE LIGHT COMES ON IS THIS RETURNABLE?

    • 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: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Magnuson%E2%80%93Moss_Warranty_Act 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!

      Special

      I don't normally review unless something is special. Yes, there is a bump in power and mpg. Exactly how much I don't know because I also have a Magnaflow catback system and a Ford Racing X pipe. I do know that combo is good for @35 mpg at 65 mph without a tune. The "sucking in air" sound it makes upon acceleration is also pretty cool. So, yes, more power, mpg, and cool sound. But I didn't write this review for thst. No, I did it for Airaid's customer service. I went to clean mine after 35k miles (earlier than manual says but I live in the South with pollen so thick the air turns yellow) and the filter rubber had ripped. I contacted Airaid, gave them the proof of ownership, and they two-day shipped me a new one! No hassle and that filter alone is $60 on this site. Great product with superb customer service. Who could ask for more? Oh, yeah, it's also super easy to install.

      Dannnnggggg

      First off the intake fit almost perfectly. The only trouble I had was bolting the housing to the heat shield. Make sure you still have the stock air port that connects to the front of the heat shield from the stock air box. Overall sound difference was better, pulls harder in higher RPMs and let’s the car breathe better. Would recommend bama tune with it for optimum performance upgrade

      Decent

      Simple to install but it is a tight fit sliding it down over the throttle body. Gives my exhaust noise I nice rumble around 3-3500 rpms. After install I had a minor idle issue where in park or at a stop the idle would bump up slightly and the car would shake so I did the idle relearn and pulled fuse 47 to clear the adaptive driving for good measure and runs great now. Also I now get 32-33 mpg going 60-65 with cruise control on.

      Power you can feel.

      The Airaid CAI definitely improved power and added a deeper sound to both the engine and exhaust. The installation was easy however, the fit was quite tight. Keep all bolts and screws loose until everything is in place and then tighten. Since my transmission isn’t an automatic I had to use the plug on the intake tube. The threads for the plug weren’t made very well and I had trouble getting the plug started. Also the hole for the 5/8” aluminum fitting had to be reamed slightly to get the fitting to fit. All and all I am happy with this CAI.

      Must have!!!

      I must say, the Airaid Cold Air Intake is a must have. Installing this beauty was easy as could be. Even if you've never worked under the hood before this will still prove fairly simple for you. First off I have to say that this arrived pretty quickly which really impressed me. As I said it was pretty easy to install, just make sure you have the tools needed. I was very eager to get in the car and test this thing right after I installed and I have to say I was really happy. You can definitely feel a little bit of gain in the HP and torque area, I've noticed an improvement in the torque the most though. As for MPG gains yeah you can probably squeeze a 2-3 MPG gain if you drive easy but once you hear the sound of the intake I promise you you're going to want to hot rod everywhere. The sound is just amazing, it really makes your engine sound a good bit meaner, not to mention it makes your exhaust sound a little deeper as well. Needless to say, I am very impressed with this cold air intake and I definitely recommend getting it especially for a first mod!

      Airaid Cold Air....super

      First off you can never go by any one's directions, I went step by step right up to; put the plastic tube like pc into the oil filter pc then drop the other end down and connect to your engine...really? I had about 3/8's to try to push it back, nope didn't work, had to loosen up the oil filter holding pc hook the plastic pc to the engine first then push on the other end until it snapped into the hole, it isn't going anywhere now, fits to a tee! Just a bit more muscle needed to get it in. Yet with all that, talk about a difference in power and get up and go and the added sound of it when you step on it....amazing. Well worth the buck.

      Love it!

      At the ripe age of 47 I decided to fulfill a dream and become a Mustang owner. I also wanted to have fun with my new toy, so I decide to buy in little by little to modding it. After much research, I decided the Airaid CAI would be my first mod. Having no experience at all working on cars and with only the provided instructions and videos online, I was able to successfully complete this install on my 2014 V6 Automatic in just about an hour. This is a super easy, great bang for your buck mod that anyone can do. My car feels more powerful and I love the new woosh! sound it makes when I hit the gas. Highly recommended!
