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.

Not seeing a replacement dry filter I can buy, where can I get one?

Blake06

  • Hello! Unfortunately, we do not carry a replacement dry filter to the Airaid MXP Series Cold Air Intake.

Does this CAI have a removable modular venturi tube? If bought with a tuner, will the tunes require it installed? Or will there be different tunes for having it removed? Will there be better gains with the MVT removed? I live in California so I'd like to have the ability to install the MVT for smog then remove it. While having appropriate tunes for both.

Shytek024

  • 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.

    Great intake

    I'm glad I went with this intake, it looks great, sounds great, smoothed out the acceleration and makes a noticeable difference at higher rpm. I have the pype bombs axleback and this intake definitely added more volume but cleaned up the tone as well and gave it a crisper sound. Install was very easy and instructions were clear with pictures so anyone with little or no experience shouldn't have too hard a time.

    Should have done this earlier.

    Usually I'm kind of skeptical of so many 5 star reviews, however airaid cai with a tune really is that good! I have an 07 GT convertible, it's basically stock, just a little bit of frame bracing. The car finally feels like what you'd think a mustang would feel like. The install was vary easy, I went slow, step by step and it took me a half an hour. I think it fits better then the factory air box.

    AIRAID COLD AIR INTAKE - SYNTHAMAX DRY FILTER

    This intake was everything i needed...easy to install...sort of...some parts are really tight fit espically if you have aftermarket throttle body but it did help with throttle response...i do also like that it has a removable modular venturi tube for when i get my car tuned for it...overall i love this intake.

    Noticeable difference even without a tune..

    I bought this CAI because of the ability to use it with or without a tune. I’m not quite ready to start in with tuning but I want to ability to do it later without having to buy different parts. The instructions were clear and install time was just under an hour. After installing I could hear a difference above 3k RPM and while driving the car feels more responsive all around. I can find anything to complain about with this product and I would recommend it to anybody.

    Great intake, with a couple things to note

    This is a very quick and easy installation for bolt-on power. On the positive side, this drops right into place where you old air box was, and everything hooks up to the stock parts with the greatest of ease. While you won't see huge gains from this, you will notice improved performance, more so with a tune. Washing the reusable filter is as simple as loosening the hose clamp on the filter, taking it off and cleaning it, letting it dry completely, and clamping it back on. Now the couple of minor negatives. While most of the install is simple, there's a spacer that goes in beneath the dam and this can be tricky to keep in place while you drop the bolt through. The coupler to the throttle body is a very, very tight fit onto any TB larger than stock, and will likely require you to replace the hose clamp (I have a BBK TB, and had to do this, though clamps are only about $1.50). And lastly, as of this review AM doesn't sell replacement filters for this model, so while your filter will last a long time with proper care, if/when you need to replace it, you'll need to go directly to Airaid. Their staff is just like AM's, though - very quick, knowledgeable, and friendly, and they can point you to the right filter(s) for your CAI. The filters will run you upwards of $90, so take care of yours. All around, this is a solid DIY upgrade that takes very little time to add and will go in with little to no frustration. Check the filter with each oil change and clean it as needed, and you should be very happy with this addition to your pony.

    Airaid's Synthamax Dry Intake for my '06 GT

    Decided to try this out for my first mod in my 06'GT. Installing it was ok, came with visual instructions. Had to get an extra hand to fit it in properly and tightly before putting on the clamps. Beginners can do it, so long as they get the help if needed and the right tools. You basically just need the tools to remove your stock system. Putting together this Airaid was a breeze, just pipes and clamps that close. I was skeptical at first. I originally bought this to just to get rid of the stock look but also to not look too out of place. I got the black filter to match my black car, and it matches greatly. Stealthy looking, not in your face. I started the engine, a great muscle car noise came out, this time not from the exhaust but from the engine bay. I was expecting the sucking noise, but this was a cool grumble. Took it for a ride, and even exhaust even sounded better. Every time I touch the gas the engine made a sweet grumble and the exhaust played its part with it. I can't say anything about performance gains yet, I just put it on. But for the money, it did the job of replacing my stock intake and it made me smile. I think that was worth it for me.
