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.

Love the new sound from under the hood of our 07 GT/CS convertible. Reminds me of the old days of flipping over the breather lid to unleash the 4 barrel carb. (old man alert) Airaid got it right . . . great fit, great look, very easy to install and I believe great performance after I get a tune for it. Really only one comment, but it's for AM. You should advertise this CAI more accurately. It can be used with a tune or without a tune, I had to dig to determine this information.Helpful (0)

Airaid MXP CAI w/SynthaMax
Excellent fit and finish, much better that the aftermarket brand that came with my 2008 Mustang GT. Quiet on low throttle, but a nice growl under heavier acceleration. I liked the blacked-out treatment with the blue filter. No oiling with the dry filter!Helpful (3)

totally different car
I was a little disappointed as first when I installed the Airaid and couldn't load the tunes from the cloud. When I called the tech guy said somehow the tuner was disabled. It was taken care of right away and I loaded the first tune. The car was not running right, was bucking and stalling, so I called for help and the tech guy discovered I had unknowingly inserted the venture tube in the Airaid when I installed it. Once I removed it and re-loaded the tune, I took the car our for a spin and it was like I was in a different car. My wife asked me what did it do for the car? I told her you know the Beach Boy song lyrics "Got rubber in all 4 gears" that's what it felt like! Thanks American MuscleHelpful (6)

Another great product from Airaid !
Purchased this intake after having one on my 2015 Chevy Silverado. Love the growl it gives during acceleration. Decent power gain but I'm sure the one with the tune makes a bigger difference. For the price and quality of this product, it's a must have for the Mustang. Looks great on motor, fitment was perfect as well.Helpful (7)

Install took almost 2hours but I went really slow and some of that time was spent searching for the right tools. Finished product looks great and when you hit the pedal it actually growls, love that! I did w/o a tune, no plans for that as this car is a weekend driver for the wife and I. Car feels lighter on acceleration, felt heavy before. Can feel stronger pull thru gears. Yet to check milage. Like the dry filter too. Overall great product and fast shipping.Helpful (8)

Easy, fast and powerful!
Took about an hour to install, nothing difficult at all! Paired with custom tune from Bama Performance and instant gains is an understatement!Helpful (6)
Recently went to smog my mustang, required me to go stock, and that it wasn't carb legal...plz advise
For the 2005-2006 Model Years, if you purchase this Airaid Mustang Air Intake Kit with the Red Filter, it is 50-state smog legal under Carb EO# D-609-7. If you purchased the product through us, please contact our customer service team to get the CARB OE sticker sent to you.
Not seeing a replacement dry filter I can buy, where can I get one?
Hello! Unfortunately, we do not carry a replacement dry filter to the Airaid MXP Series Cold Air Intake.
even tho tune doesn't require, would it make a difference in horsepower if I do get a tuner in a later time?
Yes, HP would increase with the addition of a custom tune.
Does this CAI comes with a venturi so that it can be used without a tune and then later add the tune and remove the venturi for maximum performance ? Thanks
This cold air intake does not come with a venturi tube.
Is there a reason only the red filter is CARB certified versus the blue and black filter for the 05-06 GT models?
That is the only filter that was CARB tested, so that is the only one that is CARB legal.
You can get the same gains with this as the race version when the MVT insert is removed depending on the tune that is written for you. You would either get the same gains or a bit less.
Correct, the Airaid MXP Series Cold Air Intake w/ SynthaMax Dry Filter will not be CARB legal for the 07-09 GT models, just 05-06 GTs.
I would recommend reinstalling and using the provided screws to prevent any possible issues down the road, and to ensure that everything is fastened securely.
Replacement filters for the Airaid MXP Series Cold Air Intake can be purchased through Airaid directly.
Yes it comes with MVT. When the MVT is installed no tune is required. When removed tune is required. When removed there will be more airflow so theoretically yes more gains.
