    Review & Installation Video

    Hey everybody, I'm Justin with americanmuscle.com. I'm going to be taking a closer look at the Airaid Cold Air Intake System fitting your 2015 Mustang GT equipped with the Synthamax filter available in your choice of either black, red or blue. The Airaid system I have here with me today has definitely become one of the more popular options for the new 2015 GTs and it's really easy to see why. Between the quality of build, the appearance, and more importantly the performance that these new systems have been able to provide for the S550. The purpose of the Airaid, much like any other aftermarket intake system available out there for your 2015 GT, is to eliminate that restrictive factory air box and get rid of that cheap paper filter, increasing not only your looks but obviously your performance in the process either with or without a custom tune. Now this Airaid in particular does not require the use of a custom tune, but as always here at AM we do strongly recommend using a custom tune to really maximize your gains possible using an intake like this, as we'll show you guys in one minute. Taking a closer look at the Airaid, you will notice the attractive build here with the 2015 specific design, namely that CNC'ed ABS plastic air box complete with a plexiglass window etched with the Airaid name trimmed out in stainless steel nicely. Now inside there we have the Synthamax dry filter, again offered in your choice of either black, red or blue and the rotomolded plastic intake tube and all the hardware and couplers needed to get the job done. Guys, as I mentioned at the top of this video, this particular intake I have with me here today from Airaid is equipped with their Synthamax dry filter. If you do look on the site you will also find an Airaid similar to this but with a Synthaflow oiled filter. Well, what's the difference? Airaid claims that both filters are totally capable of capturing dirt and particles down to two microns in size and both are completely washable and reusable, which isn't always the case with a dry filter like the Synthamax here. The main difference between each filter according to Airaid is of course in the construction itself but also in the total amount of CFM each filter can flow. The Synthaflow oiled filter, which I do not have with me here today, can flow roughly 820 CFM whereas the Synthamax dry filter here can flow roughly about 540 CFM. Even though there is a little bit of a difference there, don't expect one filter to make a ton more power than the other. Again, both filters are washable, both are reusable, but only that Synthaflow oiled filter needs to be re-oiled causing a little bit more work. Installing a new cold air intake system onto your brand new GT is definitely going to be one of the easier mods you'll ever tackle. Removing the factory intake, swapping over the map sensor, and then installing the new Airaid in reverse order should only take you roughly an hour or less using basic hand tools. As always guys, if you do have any questions about the intake itself, the differences in filters I just talked about, or about the actual install, reach out to a Mustang expert anytime. Now that we have the intake installed it's time to upload that custom tune we talked about a little bit earlier just to maximize the gains. Once this is done we're going to make another hit here with the 2015 GT behind me, compare it to our baseline run we already did and see how we made out. Our baseline run using our 6-speed 2015 GT gave us 387 horsepower and 365 pound-feet of torque at the rear wheels. With the Airaid installed the car is now making 412 horsepower and 387 pound-feet of torque at the rear wheels making for a peak gain of 25 horsepower over those baseline numbers and gains of as much as 35 horsepower and 33 pound-feet of torque under the curve. The cold air intake system like the Airaid here is oftentimes one of the first mods many Mustang owners look into when modding his or her own ride. With the appearance upgrades, the performance benefits either with or without a tune, and lastly the ease of install it's pretty easy to see why. Be sure to check out an Airaid option for your Coyote powered GT here at americanmuscle.com.

    Increase horsepower and torque. Airaid Cold Air Intake Systems are computer designed to give your 5.0L Coyote V8 engine maximum air flow, which translates to more horsepower, torque and improved fuel efficiency. Airaid intakes are dyno tested and tuned for maximum performance and efficiency.

    No Tune Required. This Airaid Cold Air Intake is designed to improve the performance of your 5.0L V8 powered Pony without any computer reprogramming required. By utilizing state of the art computer-aided designs, Airaid Intake Systems offer unmatched fit, finish, and power!

    Superior Filtration. Each cold air intake provides superior air filtration, since it includes an Airaid Premium Filter with SynthaMax® technology. SynthaMax® is a synthetic nano-fiber material that traps the smallest dirt particles that ordinary cotton-gauze "performance" filters just can't capture. Airaid Premium Filters, with SynthaMax® can capture particulates down to 2 microns in size. And best of all Premium Filters are washable and re-usable saving you money.

    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. Another cool feature is the clear plexiglass lid that not only adds eye catching under hood styling, but makes it easy to check filter condition with just a glance.

    Application. This Airaid Cold Air Intake System with SynthaMax filter is specifically designed to fit the 2015-2017 GT Mustangs equipped with the Coyote 5.0L DOHC V8 engine. The SynthaMax filter is available in Blue, Black, or Red. Please choose filter color from the options above.

    What would be the increased hp without the tune

    BOSS1

    • Without a tune, the Airaid MXP Series Cold Air Intake will provide gains of approximately 10-15 horsepower.

    How do you wash these? Last time I cleaned it I just used a vacuum to suck some of the debris out of it but no clue if that is sufficient or not. Thanks.

    kyleS550

    • It is a good idea get a filter cleaning kit. You can use a hose with low pressure in order to rinse the filter off. The filter will need to air dry completely. You do not want to install the filter when it is still damp.

    I have a '15 GT. What is the risk of voiding warranties...what warranty would it void...and when does that warranty end? What tune is recommended?

    goSpeedgo

    • In regards to factory warranties, we generally recommend reaching out to your dealership to determine what aftermarket parts will void your warranty if installed on the vehicle. As far as what tune would work best with the Airaid Cold Air Intake, it would really depend on what kind of performance gains you're looking to see. Bama offers Street, Performance and Race tunes. The latter being the one that will provide the best possible gains (not including e85).

    what kind tune with both this cold air intake and ford performance GT350 5.2 L Voodoo intake manifold?

    qun

    • The Airaid MXP Series Cold Air Intake w/ SynthaMax Dry Filter and Ford Performance GT350 5.2L Manifold will require a custom tune. A custom tune will ensure that the car is functioning properly with these modifications. I suggest going with the Bama X4/SF4 Power Flash Tuner w/ 2 Custom Tunes, item # 101200G15, (https://www.americanmuscle.com/x4-custom-tuner-2015gt.html)

      This is an awesome CAI. Looks good. You can feel a little bit of a difference when paired with a handheld tuner. Only this I didn't like was mine was missing the two screws for the mass air flow sensor.

      Looks great under the hood

      The Airaid CAI is a quality product that fits perfectly under the hood and looks great. You can hear the sucking action when revving the engine in neutral. As for performance gains, it's honestly hard for me to feel any difference. Steeda recently did a test of their CAI on a 2018 GT and they gained 1mph and -0.1s in the 1/4 mile, which shows how minimal the gain can be. Just don't expect huge gains with only a cold air intake. If I was to do it all over again, I'd just stick a drop-in KandN filter in to the stock air box and but the extra cash to suspension/anti-hop mods.

      Easy installation

      Perfect fit and very easy to install. The only negative issue is that it didn’t come with the 1” hose and one of the 4” clamp, so I had to do extra shopping in order to get the air raid finished.

      Airaid Closed-box CAI

      I read many reviews and looked up technical specifications for many CAIs, and I ended up purchasing this one. I don't regret the decision at all. The install was nice and easy with the instructions provided. Any individual with a little wrench experience can complete the installation. **This kit even includes the sound tune delete parts**, so there is no need to purchase additional parts or kits for this. It looks great and brings a clean appearance to the addition. The increase of pull on acceleration is noticeable. With the combination of original 40 series Flowmaster mufflers only (my resonator remains), the car has a noticeable increase of horsepower (a tune will help even more, though it is not required with this CAI). There is a slight increase of engine sound with this intake, which is to be expected. Very nice product in appearance and performance. Highly recommended!

      Good Product

      The air filter fit just fine. Had a CandL before and they fit about the same. No check engine lights after start up with no programming. I will have this dyno tuned at a local shop. The metal bezel and plexiglass has a poor fit unlike the CandL. I had to drill and force fit those pieces on because they drilled all the holes in the off center of where they were supposed to be. All in all, it’s a good product. It would have been a 5 if those trim pieces matched up.

      Cheaply made.

      Not what I expected for the price. It does look good under the hood. The plexy glass cover was drilled incorrectly so while trying to make it work the nuts on the inside of the plastic stripped out when I was installing the bolts. So taking my cover off in the future to clean my filter will be impossible. Should have went with the open roush intake.

      Great intake

      The intake comes shipped in an airaid manuferfering box and unfortunately the first one I ordered was missing a few necessary fittings. It looked more like an airaid mistake at packaging. But American Muscle was great. I sent them a couple pictures of what was in the box, and they confirmed items missing. The same day they processed the return and send me a return label. The turn around was days, not weeks, for my new intake. It was easy to bolt on; less than an hour. So far so great. Very satisfied.

      Airaid Cold Air Intake

      Recently purchased a 2015 GT Performance Package and wanted to add a couple mods. I chose to install a cold air intake and purchased the airaid with the dry filter, It took me little less than an hour to install and looks great! Now the test... I started the car and yes you can tell a difference in sound... deeper sound. Then I took it for a spin and YES you can tell a definite hp gain! I am extremely happy with this purchase as it adds a great look to the engine as well as performance boost!! I highly recommend the airaid cold air intake!!
