Review & Install Video

Hey everyone, Dave from Bama performance, with me today I have BBK’s aluminum and titanium colored cold air intake kit, it fits like the car you see over my shoulder, the 05-09 Mustang GT. Now this features the high flowing and reusable filter, along with this sturdy aluminum tube, and all the necessary couplers, hardware, and heat shield that you need to get some decent gains on your 05-09 GT. What we’re going to do today is get some dyno numbers with this kit installed to see what kind of gains we produce, before we do that, let’s put our GT up on the dyno, to get some bone stock numbers , and move on from there. It came out with 257 horse power, and 285 ft/lbs of torque with the factory airbox in place. Now, we’re going to go ahead and remove this, install our BBK, and combine it with a Bama tune. We installed a 93 octane Bama race tune, here’s what this will do for you, it will give you optimized spark timing, adjusts your variable cam timing, give you a perfect air/fuel ratio, and dramatically improve your throttle response. Even though this BBK part doesn’t require a tune, we’re looking for maximum results today, so we’re going to combine it with a Bama tune and re-run it on the dyno, to see what kind of gains our GT picks up. And the end result, 22 more horsepower , and 20 additional ft/lbs of torque.

Improves Horsepower. The BBK Cold Air Intake kit completely replaces your 2005-2009 GT mustangs restrictive factory air box and paper filter element with a high flow BBK filter assembly for a noticeable increase in horsepower and acceleration while providing filtration of harmful power robbing dust particles. The BBK CAI improves the airflow path into your engine creating more power.

No Tune Required. Unlike other Cold Air Intakes on the market for the 2005-2009 GT mustangs the BBK CAI does not require a computer re-tune. The engineers at BBK really did their homework to improve your pony's power using the factory tune.

Reusable Filter. BBK designed the high flow cotton air filter to be reusable. So no need to go out and buy a new filter every few thousand miles. Just clean the filter, re-oil it, save money, and go!

Titanium Powder Coat Finish. The BBK CAI not only improves your pony's horsepower and acceleration, but improves your mustangs under hood appearance with a beautiful Titanium Powder Coat Finish. You'll be sure to attract attention at all the car shows with this jewel under the hood.

Easy Install. The BBK Cold Air Intake kit is designed to install easily with basic hand tools. No extra modifications or special tools are required for the installation. All parts and instructions are included.

CARB Certified. Best of all this BBK Mustang Cold Air Intake Kit is 50-state smog legal under Carb EO# D-245-14 (applies to 2005-2006 GT only).

Application. This BBK Cold Air Intake System is specifically designed to fit the 2005-2019 GT Mustangs equipped with the 4.6L V8 engine and does not require re-tuning the vehicles computer for operation.

I have a BBK CIA, ive had it a few years now. I read that you can "Just clean the filter, re-oil it". How do you "clean it" and oil it? Ive never owned a CIA before so this is new to me. Thank you!


  • Hello! Most companies that make intakes, also produce and sell cleaning kits that will include everything necessary for cleaning your air intake, as well as re-oiling it.

Is Premium Fuel Necessary with BBK intake? Would like a better performing intake,but, do not want to be forced to buy premium fuel. Same question for the Ford Racing intake. Which cold air intake is best performing WITHOUT using premium fuel ?


  • well.... first I'm thinking you should consider a kia or something if you are concerned about fuel for any reason... maybe a prius.. to answer your question though, no you don't need to run premium fuel with this or really any CAI but at the same time... why wouldn't you do it anyway... even with a bone stock mustang with no upgrades?? reg gas = like eating a twinkie or cup cake or something premium = like eating a high fiber protein diet low in fat etc... it just makes more sense

BBK Cold Air Intake and Dyno specs without Tune What are the dyno specs for the Mustang GT after installation of the BBK silver titanium cold air intake without tuning? Same question for the blackout model. Is there a difference in the dyno specs, between the black out and silver cold air intake in cold vs hot weather?


  • um... I think they are exactly the same in every single way except color but I could be mistaken... but I'm thinking there would be no difference in dyno results because they are a different color as far as tuning goes... not even a question to ask... just get the tune it makes a huge difference. CAI alone you prolly won't see much of a difference if at all.

    Great product but can be misleading

    I bought this CAI believing that i wasn't going to need a retune but after five minutes of driving my engine light lit up with a lean code. I bought this believing i wasn't going to need to spend another 400 dollars for a tuner but i guess I'm going to have to if i don't want my pistons to burn. Other than that its a great product you can hear the air getting sucked in when under acceleration, you can feel and hear the difference. Other than the tune problem its a good product

    Istalled CAI and 62 mm throttle body. First test drive had great increase in performance and responsiveness. VERY GOOD. Here's the bad. I eventually got the idiot light. Diagnostic showed lean fuel on both injection banks. Mass Air meter is supposed to adjust to the increased air flow and increase fuel but mine hasn't. I recommend a tuner to ensure you increase fuel and avoid motor damage. Better to spend a few hundred now than thousands later. Still an awesome and easy install though, it's like a new car is sitting in the garage.

    Ive had nothing but issues with this intake since its arrival. It took 3 weeks to get to my house along with an SCT tuner. We could not install it at home because the hole in the heat shield was so small that once the filter was forced through it, we could not get it to fit the intake pipe snug. I took it to the performance shop Ive used in the past and they finally got it to fit. Since then I have had the check engine light 4 times come on. At first it was just P0174 but now both it and P0171 meaning my engine is now running lean. BBK though quick to respond to my emails has yet to assure me any help and has said unless I revert my tune back to stock they cant promise anything. It does look nice but im not sure it has been worth the hassle I've had to endure.

    A M did it again..quality product..easy install..noticeable power engine light check problems. One thing I notice, coming off line with the stock air filter I was getting a low powerful growl sound..Now the engine sounds more like a Bobcat in heat !!!! it's getting dark... time to find another cat....

    Great Intake

    Provides Deeper growl and more acceleration. This product does however require a tune due to a lean mixture causing check engine light, clogged fuel injection and cylinder mis-fire.

    Listen to me, the system has to and I repeat has to be re-tuned. Otherwise the idiot lite will come on due to a lean mixture. I\'m sure the system works fine, but as I said it has to be re-tuned.

    BBK Cold Air Intake

    This product is advertised as no tuning required. After installing it on my 09 GT, the engine light came on. I ended up having to buy a tuner to correct the lean issues it was having. However, this is a good product as it definitely did make a difference in the sound and power. Installation was pretty simple. Just make sure you're prepared to re-tune.

    Not Bad

    I installed this on my '06 GT and am fairly happy with it. I didn't have any check engine light come on, I noticed an increase in acceleration. The only thing was that the mass air meter wire length and pvc length were fairly tight, I would've like to of seen a little more freeplay in them

    Be Careful

    I installed one of these BK CAI's about 6 months ago. No issues until a week ago when the OBD light came on. Long story short, my engines was running way too rich (25% over normal) with the BBK. Even a new MAF would not correct the issues. The engine would only recalibrate to factory norms with the stock airbox. Note that SCT and others have no program for BBK either to correct the problem created by the BBK.. So, be careful if you buy!

    performance gain and looks great

    Very easy to install. I also added a throttle body spacer and it required me to extend one of the emission hoses. But as far as the intake goes it is great. Sounds aggressive around 2500 rmp when driving normally. I noticed increased quicker throttle response and acceleration. I am not sure if a tune is required because I installed a superchip at the same time.
