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.

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.

  • 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 noticed that my air conditioning is not producing the extremely cold air that it did before I installed this product. I wouldn't think that it would affect that at all. Has anyone else experienced this?

I had purchased this kit and now is time to clean the filter. Does AM sell the cleaner for the filter?

    Worth it!

    Fit and finish is typical outstanding Airaid quality. The only time consuming part is if you wish to remove the sound tube (which I did) other than that it's straight forward and quick. I do highly recommend doing the sound tube delete as it really cleans up the engine compartment and sound. I have no idea why the heck Ford thinks the darn thing is needed anywho.

    Great intake for my 2017 GT. Noticable torque, power and throttle gains without the tune. After the tune it's gets even better. Great product and easy to install. Under 45 minutes, but I have previous experience on other Older mustangs. Overall a great buy for the money!

    Word still out on this one

    Well the Borla Touring exhaust was awesome, and overall I thing the exhaust and the intake freed the engine up, but at times I feel like the car does not have as quick response as stock. In high gears, roll on power seems like it takes forever, even though at 80 mph I'm only at 2200 rpm, in 6th gear, pressing the throttle seems to waffle and sounds like the timing is off or something and passing power is slow to produce until I get into the 3500rpm range. I have only had the car for a month and maybe I am expecting too quick a response from the car in 6th gear and 2200 rpm. Otherwise, fit and finish is near exact and just wish there was more slack in the wiring going to the airflow electronics. Definitely the car has changed, just can't say if it's a good change yet.

    EZ install, needs better hardware

    I had to buy longer stainless screws for cover. Looks awesome under the hood. Felt a slight increase in performance. I put a Gibson cat-back on a week later and am overwhelmed by the noise and drone of the exhaust, wish I had gone with a quieter system, but thrilled with the CAI.

    Good so far! TBS OWNERS - It still fits!

    So I read the other reviews and everything they describe about the product/performance is awesome. I have the TBS also and you can make it fit. When you are installing the main intake tube the way they describe it wont go on. But if you keep the air box loose and put the rubber ends on the tube first, you can (with some force) get the rubber ends on and seat the box back down. I pushed on the tube from the passenger side into the airbox and then slid the tube towards the intake and it popped on. Everything else after that is the same as the install goes. Granted I wish they had considered people having their other products already on and maybe offering some help. (thats why it gets 4/5 for fit)

    You're not going to notice performance gains at all. Those who say they do are just wanting to feel the gains and trick themselves into believing their car is faster. It was a bear to install on the 2017. The fit was extremely tight and had to install most of it in reverse order to make it work. Good setup to handle further upgrades.

    This looks great in the engine bay. My car ran a little cooler with the Airraid compared to factory air box. I had a tune done at the same time and it helped the car a lot. Stop wondering if you should get a tune and do it.
