    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

    • 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.

      Air Raid

      It's a pretty straightforward install,except,on the 2017 Mustang,one of the side ports need to plug. The air line is connected in the center,either plug and cut or leave it there and plug the portal on the Air Raid tube,other than that, and dropping parts it went in good. Took me about 2 hours because of dropped parts and figuring out the lines.

      Nice Upgrade

      Based on other customer reviews, I decided to purchase this for our 50th Anniversary Mustang. Install was fairly easy but the fit was very tight trying to fit the tube into the flanges on either side. A little disappointed that the plexiglass cover wasn't etched with "Air Raid" as shown on website, but it still looks nice, much better than stock. Did not do the tune and will wait until I install the Magnaflow Foose exhaust we also purchased to comment on performance gains.

      Doesnt tell you that you have to put in a plug for a 2017 GT. Air tube has extra hole and cannot get hard rubber plug in the hole.had to install the hose adapter and go buy a rubber cap.

      Clean look from a quality product

      Only took about an hour to install the CAI. We also decided to get rid of the silly resonator. The result is a much cleaner look. The Airaid CAI looks very impressive and the car feels a bit smoother when on the gas. I can also notice improved gas mileage which was the not goal of this install but an added plus. Definitely a quality product. Didn’t get the optional tune (yet). But still an option.

      Airaid MPX Install

      We were excited to get this CAI that didn't require a tune and that had an aggressive look and we got both in this design! I admit it's a tight fit and two people are needed to help get the final fit right but man it's tight when done. The small blurb about removing the sound tube could be more truthful. I got the sound tube out after 3 hours of fighting the little nut on the firewall but it looks so much cleaner under the hood I love it! Great product, lots of compliments and it adds to the sound and most of all, no tune

      Panic!!!!

      After close review I chose this for my 2016 GT. It says (doesn't need tune) or something like that. Although I would tune anyway, just not at the moment of installation. I had it professionally installed and its definitely not easy for even a master mechanic. It was in, i got on the road really exited...and my car LITERALLY drove like it had 150 HP!!!! A Total panic! Anyways i contacted AM and they said it needs a tune. Of course another $399 purchase! Not cool at all! I decided to get a dyno tune this week thats $500, as Im done with additions for a few years. Until I can get a supercharger. The description was unfair, and the guy that “helped me” via message said “well all mustangs respond differently!” Thanks a lot! Haha! They clearly wanted an upsale which if honest from description, i would have done it. I hope the $500 tune fixes this mess and i at least get my other 435 HP back!!

      Great parts quality was above expectations and it looked great with the SR strut tower brace I ordered too. Just a shame my new mustang with less than 3k miles was struck by an.... elderlyman man not paying attention and cut three lanes only to slam into my rear axel and passenger door slash quarter panel. Well it at least lasted 24 hours.

      More than I expected!

      The install went relatively easily. It was easily done in under an hour. I wasn’t expecting too much with this mod, but it was a night and day difference even without the tune. I also have a cat back system so that may be part of the reason the improvement was so noticeable. The throttle response was greatly improved! There’s not that much of a sound difference, but it may be the loud exhaust that’s hiding it.

      Excellent product it is worth the expense. It does creat a noticeable improvement in performance. I was slightly disappointed that it did not have a clear window and the one provided was flimsy and a cheap piecel so a trip to Menards for heavier Plexiglas and 1 hour time I have a better one. Beyond that buy it you won't regret it
