    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.

    Improves Power And Fuel Efficiency. Increase the performance and fuel economy of your Mustang simply by replacing your restrictive stock paper air filter element with a new high flow Airaid SynthaFlow air filter to see an improvement in power and fuel efficiency, all while still providing excellent filtration.

    Superior SynthaFlow Filtration. This Airaid premium air filter provides far superior air filtration than the stock filter, since it is made 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 Premium Filters are washable and re-usable saving you money.

    Application. Airaid designed this SynthaFlow OE style Air filter to be a direct drop-in replacement for the 1996-2004 GT, Cobra and Mach 1 Mustangs using the stock air box, with no cutting or modifications required.

    Do CAI need a snorkel Hi sorry if this is a dumb question to ask but when changing air filters do you need the rubber thing I think iv heard there called snorkels but correct me if im wrong but do you need one when changing filters? I noticed my stock filter had one when taking it out so I wasent sure if its needed.

    • No you should not need it, it should fit in your factory air box with no modification

      This One's a Real No-Brainer!

      With the cost of (inferior) paper filters at about $27.00 each, this unit pays for itself in replacement costs alone in under 3 years (if you factor in the additional cost of re-charge kit). So, the (noticeable) performance gains as well as the extended use afforded by the re-charge kit are essentially free! Installs in 5 minutes; perfect fit; noticed a different sound, smoother idle, and a tick-up in response immediately. AM rocks!

      Excellent Air Filter

      This is a great air filter. I like the fact that it fits inside the stock air box which means that it's exposed to less particles and heat. It's also good to know that it can filter particles down to 2 microns. By using this product and taking the rubber "snorkel" off the the factory air box (see the picture I submitted) you essentially have a ram air intake. It definitely improves the power and responsiveness of the vehicle. It almost feels like the cold air intake that I had previously. The description also says that you get better fuel efficiency. Since I keep track of my mileage I'll be watching that over the next several months. Overall, you can't go wrong with this filter, especially if you're on a tight budget. Also, one quick note: it feels a little thicker on the bottom than a stock paper filter. Taking the air box and mass air flow meter out as single unit made the installation a lot easier.
