- BBK Cold Air Intake (2005-2009 GT) - Installation Instructions
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.

Zero to 60 louder and faster!
Installed the BBK Cold Air Intake and even without a tune, instantly saw and heard the difference. The growl is louder, the takeoff is faster. Can’t wait to see what it does after the tune! Why did I wait so long for this upgrade?Helpful (0)

Worth the money
Only reason I’m giving four stars is the install. The intake tube was a pain to attach to the air filter and the directions weren’t much help. I just YouTubed it and figured it out no biggy. Overall the install went well besides the minor issue and it looks great under the hood. It came with everything I needed to install and didn’t require any additional parts unlike the Roush air intake I’ve read about. Don’t know if gas mileage has improved yet but I did notice a pick up in acceleration and the engine runs smoother. I would recommend this to anyone.Helpful (0)

The BBK Cold Air Intake for my 06 Mustang GT is amazing. It boosted my horse power by 12 horses after taking it in to a dyno. The only problem was that the vacuum hose was to short. Nothing a quick stop to your local auto store can't handle. Over all great produce!Helpful (5)
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.
I purchased this BBK intake on my 2008 gt and 3 days later threw a Lean fuel code. Is this coinicedence or could it be caused by the new CAI?
This cold air intake should not cause a lean code once installed. If this happens, please contact our customer service department for appropriate assistance.
So I installed this CAI on my 2008 gt and a couple days later I get a lean fuel code. I have no tune, is this just a coincidence? I removed CAI reset code and it has not appeared again yet.
This should not throw a code once installed. If this does happen, please contact our customer service team right away for appropriate assistance.
This does not require a tune for operation.
The BBK Cold Air Intake paired with the BBK 62mm Throttle Body will produce around 12-18hp together, depending on other modifications. Throttle position voltage should be checked on the stock throttle body, and the BBK should be set to match the original reading.
This will work on your stock Mustang, the BBK 62mm throttle body will not need to be purchased to install this on your Mustang.
At this time we do not offer individual components for the BBK Cold Air Intake. We would recommend contacting BBK directly, as they may be able to source this for you.
