    Review & Installation Video

    Justin: Hey everybody, Justin with AmericanMuscle.com. I'm here and we're at our local drag strip, MIR, with our 2015 EcoBoost Mustang. Now the whole premise of today is to do some more real-world testing with the help of the Bama Performance team. Now our goal, take our bone stock 2015 automatic EcoBoost with the exception of a drag radial, run it down the track a few times, get some baseline numbers with this car, then pull it into the pits, install an Airaid cold air intake system, a Bama tune and then re-run it and see what time we've actually shaved off. Now it should be a great day for racing here. We've got some nice cool air. So let's get this thing to the line and see how it does. 13.64 at 98. It's nice, cold air out here and these turbo cars love that cold air. So for a stock car, that's pretty respectable. So I guess now we'll just get it in the pits. All right Mike from Bama Performance is pulling double duty for us here today. He just installed the Airaid cold air and now he's in the car working on the tune. Mike, what can everybody expect using a tune here on the EcoBoost? Mike: Well, with the EcoBoost with the turbo, we're going to focus on some boost, obviously. We're going to run the car at about 2200 psi, whole boost all the way through so it doesn't drop off. Spent a lot of time on the throttle. Factory is only about 40%. We want to hold it open a lot longer, especially on full throttle. Adjust the shift pressure so we can get better shifts. We're also going to spring-boost it a little quicker even on part-throttle, so a whole lot of changes. Justin: Nice. I mean, well, I'm interested to see how these changes affect our performance, so finish up with that tune, man, let's get this thing in line. Mike: You got it. Justin: All right, guys. So, a 12.9, 103. I mean, there you go, right intake and the tune, the Bama tune is doing its job. Paul: I'm really happy. That's why we like coming to the track. So we can take a look at the data logs in a real-world environment, revise that track tune and get the best time out of it. Justin: There you go. Real-world testing for you guys. A nice, easy mod, a tune and you're shaving off more than a half of a second and picking up some mile-an-hour on the quarter-mile. So, that's it. We're out of here. It's dark. They're kicking us out. But for all things Mustang, keep it right here at AmericanMuscle.com.

    Unique Air Box Design. This Airaid Cold Air Intake features a specially designed one-piece roto-molded intake box that draws cooler outside air from the factory cold air duct while the unique shape improves airflow around the entire filter.

    At the top of the page, it says the Airaid MXP Series Cold Air Intake w/ SynthaMax Dry Filter (15-18 EcoBoost) will work on the 2018 EcoBoost. But with the first question, you all say no. Has there been a change or upgrade, since the first question was asked? I would really like to put this on my 2018 2.3L.

    • We apologize for the confusion. The first question was asked before we were able to verify this intake would also work for the 2018 Ecoboost models. You would be able to install this part on your ecoboost without an issue.

    When will you have one for 2018 ecoboost?

    • The Airaid MXP Series Cold Air Intake is not currently available for 2018 models - As soon as the intakes become available for the 2018's from Airaid they will be on our site as stock becomes available.

    What are the advantages and disadvantages to having the Airaid MXP Series Cold Air Intake w/ SynthaMax Dry Filter vs the oiled filter?

    • This would really depend on what you do with the car. Oiled filters would be more for the everyday driver and the dry filter will be more for track days.

    I have The Ford Performance Tune Kit for the Ecoboost and While that works fine and all; I would very Much rather Have This Air-box versus the GT350 Air box that comes with the FRPP Tune kit. Can use the Airaid MXP cai with the FRPP Tune or will it cause the ecu to throw a code or be restrictive in any way?

    • The ford performance tune is only meant to work with the ford performance intakes, separate tunes would be required for another intake. This would include; a Bama tuner, or VMP tuner to use with the Airaid MXP Cold Air Intake.

      Really Awesome Intake

      This intake is Bang for your buck! A big difference from an aftermarket open air intake. This intake creates boost really quick and easy to install if you put things together the day before.

      Good product, no noticeable performance difference

      Not sure if it's my inexperience but I honestly haven't seen too much difference in performance. I plan on implementing a tune in the near future however the only difference I've noticed is a decline in fuel economy. It does sound awesome though. Definitely a much more noticeable air flow sound. Not dissatisfied though. Installation was easy but make sure your clamps aren't too tight when connecting the bigger hoses. I had a really hard time with them just because the clamps were a tad too tight.

      Intake came right away. The directions were step by step easy to follow w/ pictures. Video online if you need it. Took about an hour to remove OEM filter and install new Airaid. MXP. Car sounds a little better for a 4 cyl. , lol. This unit looks awesome under the hood and fits perfectly. Highly recommend.

      First of all I love the look! Very good materials used to make this item as well. Installation wasn't too complicated and I've never touched a car in my life. It's pretty straight forward just took about an hour. You can definitely feel the difference. You can hear the turbo now! 4/5 solid!

      Installing the Airaid Cold Air Intake kit

      My son and I removed and installed in about 1 hour. Fairly easy to remove the factory intake, but installation was a little tricky. The directions said to install the filter housing first and then the tube, but we tried that and had to remove the new filter housing and build from the bottom of the engine to the top.

      Air aid intake

      I like the Air aid intake alot I just can't wait to get my tuner and throw the tune on so I can see what all it really has to offer. I'm sure the result will be nice.

      Good easy mod

      This intake gives my ecoboost more of a howl for now. I'll partner this with an exhaust to change that to a growl. The part was fairly easy to install. The hardest part was removing the spring clamp from one of the hoses. Make sure to get everything on nice and tight. I've noticed slightly better throttle response. Once I get a tune I believe I'll notice better gains. For now it looks pretty under the hood and it gave me a sense of accomplishment being able to complete this myself.

      Took awhile, but worth it

      Ordered item for my wife's '16 Ecoboost as Xmas present. When pkg arrived, no instructions or hardware (bolts, clamps, etc.) were included. Airaid's fault as the box wasn't securely taped and sealed. American Muscle promptly replaced the original with a new CAI, no questions asked. Outstanding customer service from Jeff L. Installed in 1.5 hrs, using regular hand tools and taking my time and double-checking my work. Hints: bolt holding factory airbox is 10mm not 6 as instructions state. Leave the Airaid airbox loose until the new intake tube is attached at the turbo and at the airbox. This makes it easier to get correct fitment for all the parts before tightening clamps. Double-check that new airbox is fitted correctly to the car's air inlet behind the grille. Airaid CAI is top quality throughout and instructions are easy to follow. Just installed Mishimoto cat-back exhaust also ordered from AM, so between it and the new CAI, I estimate a modest gain of about 3-4 HP. Long drive to nearest dyno, so have to estimate. Very satisfied with both the Mishimoto exhaust system and the Airaid CAI. Would recommend either or both if you're looking for a modest HP gain for your Ecoboost Mustang.

      Highly recommended especially as a first upgrade!

      Ordered product on a Friday and it was at my doorstep the following Monday, so I was immediately surprised by that! The installation was quick and easy and results are more than noticeable. Throttle response is greatly increased and the added boost in the turbo's sound is a nice bonus. Inlet air temps have dropped an average of 30 degrees F since installation. Definitely a must have for all EcoBoost owners who want a little more than what comes stock.
