Hey, guys, Justin with AmericanMuscle.com here, and in this video, I'm going to be taking a closer look at the Airaid cold air intake system, equipped with the SynthaFlow oiled filter, available for your 2015 Coyote powered GT. Airaid has earned a reputation in the Mustang world thanks to their quality intake systems that perform great, look awesome, and are built with quality in mind. Now guys, we're going to show you just how well this thing will perform, but first, let's break down some of the specifics with the S550 Airraid.As is the case with any other Airaid product, you can tell a lot of time and effort went into designing the new intake here for the 2015 Mustang. We're looking at a roto-molded plastic intake tube and one-piece air box, featuring a new design for 2015. As you can see, they've included a little Plexiglas window here etched with the Airaid logo, a little brushed stainless steel going on, very cool. It's going to look great under the hood and, more importantly, it's going to allow you to keep an eye on the filter condition over time.In addition to the intake tube itself, the one-piece air box, and of course, that reusable high-flow SynthaFlow filter, you do get all the couplers and hardware, and detailed instructions needed to get this intake installed easily. Now, the 2015 GT Airaid intake is a no-tune-required intake, meaning, for those of you at home watching this who are not ready to pull the trigger on a tune just yet, you can buy this intake, bolt it up, and go. It's going to perform better than your factory air box and look good while doing so. However, since this video is specifically about the benefits of running a cold air and performance tune, let's talk about how that after-market custom tune will help you there.Now, technically speaking, you can expect optimized spark and cam timing, adjustments to your rev and speed limiters and drive-by-wire calibrations, and ultimately, the most power out of your setup by optimizing those air fuel ratios. Getting this combo installed should only take you about an hour from start to finish, using basic hand tools. Now, you figure you have to remove your factory air box, get the new Airaid installed here. If you guys do have any questions about this process or about the Airaid itself, well then feel free to reach out to an AmericanMuscle Mustang expert anytime by phone or e-mail.We already grabbed our baseline run using our six-speed GT behind me, so now with the Airaid installed, it's time to turn the rollers one more time on our Dynojet and see what kind of gains we can expect with this combo. Our baseline run, using our six-speed 2015 GT gave us 384 horsepower and 362 pound-feet of torque at the rear wheels. With the Airaid, the car is now making 407 horsepower and 379 pound-feet of torque, giving us a peak gain of 23 horsepower over those baseline numbers, and gains of as much as 26 horsepower and 30 pound-feet of torque throughout the curve.As we demonstrate time and time again here at AM, for the time and effort spent, there's really nothing that compares to upgrading to a quality intake system like the Airaid here. So be sure to check out an Airaid cold air intake for your ride, right here at AmericanMuscle.com.

Excellent / tight fit
The install instructions were adequate for anybody that has any skill. The fitment was very tight and a little bit of a struggle. I could definitely feel the HP gains and the throttle response changes. Overall, I really like the look and the way it helps my car perform.Helpful (0)

Very tight fit but absolutely phenomenal once it’s in. Takes about 2 hours for total process. Can definitely notice a different. MPG went up at least 2-3.Helpful (0)

Airaid has lost their way
I chose this intake because of the closed box design. I wanted something that wouldn't give me high IAT's in bumper to bumper traffic or whatever. In this the intake kind of delivers, but it is not without it's shortcomings. The plexiglass lid and metal cover has already started to become discolored after going through the carwash twice. At first I thought it was just soap or water spots, but I could not remove them with detailer or similiar products. Also the plexiglass cover and metal insert didn't fit correctly over the intake. I had to use a dremel to clearance the intake molding to make it fit. This is unacceptable for a company like Airaid who has been in the business for some time. If I had to do it over again I would go with Steeda or JLT.Helpful (4)

Great Intake, Easy Install
I bought this cold air intake just as a replacement for the stock one, and it was very easy to install. Install time was around two hours but would probably be faster for someone more comfortable under the hood. I did not purchase a tuner with it so didn't expect any performance gain, but I can feel a slight difference in the "get up and go." The look of this intake under the hood is a huge plus as well!Helpful (3)
What is the difference between the oiled and unoiled filters as far as hp and tq efore and after a tune? Thanks for your help.
Power gains will be identical between the two, they only differ in the methods of filtration.
Is this product as good without the tune? I am skeptical if this is the way I should go?
Hello! The Airaid Cold Air Intake - SynthaFlow Oiled Filter will not produce as much power without a tune but nonetheless will work fine without a tune still.
I currently live in CA and am aware that this is not legal for use on the street. I am planning on taking my car to the track and installing it there and using it for off-road purposes only. Will I still be able to purchase it?
Yes, you can purchase this Airaid Cold Air Intake if you live in California. However, we do have to make sure you are aware this is not legal for street use and should be used for off-road use only.
On the Air Raid MPX, what are pros and cons between the oiled and uncoiled filters? Thanks for your help.
Oiled covered filters are great at keeping small particles out of the engine and a non oiled filter has less maintenance such as re-oiling the filter.
If you get caught in a rainstorm while traveling...what effect or how is any rain that gets into AI get removed ... or should you stop.. I know you don't want to suck water into engine...
The Airaid MXP Series Cold Air Intake is a fully enclosed intake system meaning it is sealed from pulling any moisture and dirt in to the filter. This cold air intake will allow you to use the vehicle, rain or shine!
The GT350 intake manifold will require the use of the Ford Performance 87mm GT350 throttle body. This cold air intake however can fit with the 87mm throttle body and the GT350 intake manifold.
A replacement filter can be ordered from AirRaid and their part number for this air filter is 700-495.
This is not CARB legal
This does not include a venturi tube.
We do not offer replacement covers for this intake.
We recommend using the clear lid as it will help keep debris from the filter.
The Airaid MXP Series Cold Air Intake does not come with an insert that requires a tune if removed.
