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.

Looking to buy
Can someone tell me if this will work with the 65mm throttle body?Helpful (23)
December 26, 2018
I have an auto but I drove it manually and I love second gear, there's a noticeable difference in the exhaust notes and I seem to accelerate a lil faster than normal, mpg seems to stay the same, overall I'm happy with this product and I'm giving 4 out of 5 stars because I was literally working on it all day, I was getting too much air in the engine which caused an erratic idle issue(I didn't tighten the bolts all the way), it probably works best with the stock cai, my setup is a bbk cai(very tight fit with putting the spacer and cai on)and flowmaster 40's. Thanks AM!Helpful (6)

Nice Cheap Upgrade
Word of advice. Don’t ask me how I know but make sure to remove the old gasket completely and scrape off and stuck pieces before installing or your car will run really rough. Other than that works fine and there is a slight horsepower increase. Only takes an hour to install, if done correctly.Helpful (6)

Good Quality and Performance
I was surprised at how well this spacer improved both throttle response and power. However all of the power gains for me are felt at low and mid throttle. For everyday driving, this is nice because now I don't have to put my foot as far down on the pedal as I had to before to get the same acceleration. The car has several other mods and a tune so the 4 or 5 horsepower gain from the spacer at wide open throttle was not really noticed. Some reviewers were annoyed at the whistle that the spacer produced, but for me it was audible but not loud. Also while this spacer is advertised to work only for the 99-01 Mustang, I installed this on my 02 Mustang and it fit flawlessly, and I imagine it would fit on the 03 as well since the intake is the same. I am not sure if this would fit on a 04 however, as the engine was changed that year.Helpful (13)

Well worth the money
This spacer was easy to install and at the same time I installed a cold air intake. My V6 has more torque through all gears. But you really notice it in 1st, 2nd and 3rd. And I am getting about 10 better gas mileage. Would recommend this product to anyone. I have a 2001 mustang with the V6.Helpful (9)

Not sure yet.
I love the product but I'm not sure yet soon after install check engine light comes on tells me I have a vacuum leak I have replaced all vacuum lines have even blown smoke in the intake no leak detected system is holding good pressure so I'm not sure what it could be other than that the product is awesome you can feel the difference you can feel the power and the takeoff when it kicks in you can hear it hiss kind of like a turbo are supercharger even though I'm still having this issue I would recommend this product to anyone it's awesome the only reason I didn't give it a five-star is because of the check engine light other than that I would say it's a 10 starHelpful (9)

It fits in ok but had to ajust cruise control line to have it fit with 65mm Throttle body by BBK on v6 3.9L mustang.Helpful (10)

Whistle while you work!
This bolt on product Airaid is legit! Took less than an hour to install in my 99 Stang. Sounds legit and For sure my car is breathing way better. More torque and way better acceleration. Sounds awesome too! Beast mode! Bang for your buck$Helpful (16)
Does this really work for a GAIN of HP/TQ or MPG? Before I or others spend $114 maybe you guys should make a video of the gains.
Yes you will see HP gains of about 5 and about 1 more mpg.
WIll this fit aftermarket BBK 65mm throttlebody? Is this worth puting on with a 65mm BBK throttlebody or will it choke the intake down and actually minimize the airflow coming in due to the fact that it was designed to work with a factory throttle body? I have a aftermaret cai as well, long tube headers, no cats, h- pipe, thrush open chamber mufflers and a 93 ocatane performance tune, demon coil, msd wires and iridium plugs. Also have no emissions, it's all disconnected, the dpr, dpv, and egr all turned off along with the egr blocked off and mil elliminators in the front o2 holes.
It would not be beneficial to use this spacer with any aftermarket throttle body for the exact reasoning you listed. This spacer is designed to mate with the stock throttle body bore size and will minimize the airflow if combined with a larger mm aftermarket replacement. I would stick with the set up you have currently! Hope this helps!
Would I see a larger horsepower and torque gain out of this part than the slightly larger 65mm throttle body?
This will give you minimal gains. I would recommend purchasing the 65mm throttle body as that will give you the most gains.
So will I lose Horsepower if I use this with a 65mm throttlebody
The Airaid Poweraid Throttle Body Spacer is designed to fit 1999 to 2001 3.8L V6 Mustangs with a stock throttle body. This will not work with an upgraded aftermarket 65mm throttle body.
You stated this will not fit the 02-04 mustand V6's without slight modifications. What are those modifications to make them fit since no one carries a spacer for our motors? Mostly stock v6 and don't see the need for the bigger throttle body since I won't be going to duals.
We do not currently carry a throttle body spacer for the 02-04 models. You would need to trim or cut down the intake and we do not have further directions in regards to this process available at this point in time.
This Airaid Poweraid Throttle Body Spacer will only work on the 1999-2001 V6 Mustangs. At this time we would not carry a throttle body spacer for the 02-04 models.
Hello, with this throttle spacer and an aftermarket intake you might have to trim or cut down the intake. The reasoning behind this is because the CAI is a certain length to be an exact fit to the throttle body. Because you are decreasing the length the CAI needs to travel to attach to the throttle body it might be too long and therefore a tight or improper fit.
The Airaid Poweraid Throttle Body Spacer (99-01 V6) has confirmed fitment for 1999-2001 V6 Mustangs because it was designed to work with the Romeo motors. There are subtle changes from the Romeo and Windsor motors and the throttle body spacer is one that would require slight modification which is why we have fitment for only 1999-2001.
The throttle body changed slightly between the 00-01 years. That is why this Spacer will not fit for 02-04.
The spacer helps on its own a great deal with low end torque. But if you tune your car you will see more gains, it's only logical. If I were you, bolt on as much as you can and tune it toward the very end when you are done. Hope that helps
I didnt need to for my mine it fit in well it was a tight squeeze but it fits and works great with no issues.
No, this spacer fits 1999-2001 V6 Mustangs only.
I Have Bbk Cai Too. I Didn't Have To Do Any adjustments At All. Ive Read People Banging In Their Cai To Fit But I Think TheyDidn't Have Experience And Patience. Just MessWith It A Bit And You Shouldn't Have Any Problems.
Airaid does carry a Throttle Body Spacer for the 99-04 GT. We are constantly getting in new Airaid products, this 99-01 V6 spacer being a prime example. I anticipate it being a product that will be available in the near future! Keep a look out for it!
