Review & Installation Video

Hey, what's up everybody? I'm Justin with AmericanMuscle.com and this is my detailed review and dyno test of the Airaid Race Cold Air Intake equipped with their track day drive filter fitting all 2015 and newer V6 Mustangs. This cold air option from Airaid is going to be for the V6 owners out there who might be spending a little bit more time on the track compared to the street and is looking for an extremely free-flowing filter while keeping things on the lower side of the price range. Alright guys, I'm going to talk about why you might want to use this Airaid here in a minute, but first let's get those dyno numbers out of the way. We already established our base line run earlier today using our automatic V6 behind me. We then went to work installing the Airaid along with a custom tune and here's how we did. Baseline run using our automatic 2015 V6 gave us 241 horsepower and 235 pound feet of torque at the rear wheels. With the intake and tune combination, the car is now making 260 horsepower and 249 pound feet of torque. That's good for a peak gain of 19 horsepower over those baseline numbers and gains of as much as 21 horsepower and 20 pound feet of torque under the curve. Alright guys, so here's the deal. The 2015 V6 Mustang operates off of speed density and not a mass airflow sensor like the cars of the past. So that means that any of the aftermarket cold airs for your V6 do not require the use of a custom tune. So why do we use one? Because we want to see the biggest gains possible. Now, are you going to see some gains using an Airaid or an aftermarket cold air by itself? Sure, you'll probably see a couple of horsepower, maybe a couple pound feet of torque, but nothing like we're looking at here because honestly, the tune is going to be doing most of the heavy lifting. With that said as you can see, the car is making great power throughout the entire RPM range. A ton of torque down low matched with some nice high-end horsepower, so overall, the tune, the intake, they're doing their job and the car is really putting down some good power. So now that you know what kind of numbers you might be able to expect with your own ride, let's talk about that Airaid a little further. Before we go any further guys, I do want to remind you that this is Airaid's track day option and because of that, they strongly urge you not to use this thing on your daily driven Mustang. The difference lies within the filter itself. It's this high-flow cotton gauze material that's not going to offer enough particulate protection for daily driving use. Now with that said, is there going to be people that use this on their daily driver? Sure, but ultimately that's totally your call. If you do plan on running this intake though, here's what you can expect, guys. A very nicely constructed roto-molded plastic intake tube that should help reduce any heat soak and it is going to be the same elbow used on all of their other kits available for the 3.7. You're also going to be receiving brand new four ply couplers, really nice aluminum fittings here and the stamp sheet metal style heat shield, which is a nice departure from some of their sealed air boxes. Again guys, we do have the dry track day filter from Airaid here. Now again, this thing starts out life like most other Airaid filters, polyurethane casing, wire mesh skeleton, but you're going to find that high flow cotton gauze material. That's going to capture most of the big stuff, but it's not going to offer the same level of filtration or protection like their synthemax or syntheflow filters. This thing is again washable, it is reusable and it's going to ship to you dry, which is nice because I prefer a dry filter personally. You do have the option of oiling it if you like, but personally I would leave it dry for a few reasons, the biggest of which being it's a lot easier when it comes to maintenance. On the topic of price guys, the Airad's going to land just south of that $300 price point, which I think you'll find to be one of the more expensive options when it comes to cold airs for your V6 here at AM. Now I've been on record before and I'm going to say it again, I really enjoy the Airaid's quality of construction and the same is true with the race option here for your V6. You're not going to be disappointed when it comes down to the quality of materials or quality of fitment. And that great fitment is only going to equate to an easier install and that's definitely going to be the case here with the Airaid, guys. An easy one out of three wrenches on my difficulty meter, maybe 30 minutes from start to finish and that's being generous. As for your tools, you're going to be looking at some basic stuff, guys. Socket set, a few screwdrivers and a pair of pliers is really all you're going to need to knock this one out. So to wrap things up here guys, if you're serious about tracking your Mustang and you're looking for maximum performance without compromising safety of your motor, then the track day option from Airaid will be a solid choice and you can find yours right here at AmericanMuscle.com.

Increase horsepower and torque. Airaid Race Cold Air Intake Systems are computer designed to give your 3.7L V6 engine maximum air flow, which translates to more horsepower, torque and improved fuel efficiency. Airaid race intakes are dyno tested and tuned for maximum performance and efficiency.

Track Use Only Filter. Made in the USA Track Day Filters feature the same high quality construction as Airaid's regular air filters, including sturdy polyurethane casings, wire mesh construction, and layers of high flow cotton gauze. Track Day Filters are shipped dry, but can be oiled by the end user if so desired. They are intended for use in a controlled racing environment (track use only) and are not recommended for street use as they do not provide enough particulate protection for daily driving.

Application. This Airaid Race Cold Air Intake System with Track Day filter is specifically designed to fit the 2015-2017 Mustangs equipped with the 3.7L Ti-VCT V6 engine. An Airaid Pre-filter is highly recommended for use in wet conditions.

Are there replacement filters available for this intake that provide more protection for dailys

LiamM

  • We do not carry replacement filters specific for this cold air intake, however, they are available directly through airraid and possibly may be able to be sourced locally.

Is it s bad idea for daily drivers?

Ponyboy

  • Since this has a high-flow cotton gauze material, it is not going to provide enough protection for daily driving and is strictly required for track use only.

    I ordered the intake with the throttle body spacer also airaid even though the reviews said it didn't fit with the intake but it does you can definitely feel a gain in power and acceleration. The only other mod i have on it is the flowmaster outlaw exaust and it also changed the tone of the exaust note. I just ordered the bbk shorty headers those are going on next. After that i have a procharger kit going on which should put it about 460 to 480 hpthe kit and install are a little under 6,500 and worth every peny

    2015 v6 Airaid intake

    I installed this system a few days ago and have noticed significant low end tq gains as well as hp especially in the top of 3rd gear . The gear use to top out at 100 at redline and now extends to 107 . I also have the poweraid throttle body spacer together as a combo they make a noticeable power gain as well as a wonderful sound combo . Cant wait to get the car tuned !

    Heed AM's Warning

    The whole point of this filter is to add maximum performance on a TRACK. Hence the name. These filters only have TWO layers of screen mesh unlike other airaid products, meaning that they're only meant to filter out LARGE debris. There's a bunch of pollen over here in Texas and it is giving me problems at the moment because the particles are so small and they get through to the throttle body, causing for the car to limp and give me a "see manual" notification despite not having a "check engine" light. Roughly 90 of the maintenance done to my car was done by myself so seeing this at first and not knowing what it was exactly was extremely frustrating to me. I also have a catback ATAK Borlas installed and the note it gives it is really throaty and raspy, but the constant "see manual" notification and the limping of my vehicle isn't worth that note. If you have the cash to buy this filter and this is your first filter, I highly advise you to use that money elsewhere and get this filter as an ADDITION later down the line. DO NOT daily this filter. It might not give you problems the first few months but it will eventually. A pre filter might help but I'm just going to be replacing the filter altogether with one that has more than just two layers of mesh. The reason why I'm still giving this 5 stars is because the performance gain and exhaust note are there and the only reason I'm facing these problems is because I ignored AM's warning.
