Review & Install Video
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.
