    Review & Install Video

    Hey I’m Justin with AmericanMuscle.com, and this is my breakdown of BBK’s blackout and chrome cold air intake systems fitting the 5.0L Coyote motor found in all 2011 and newer Mustang GTs. Starting with the BBK blackout cold air intake which as you can see gets its name for good reason, everything on this intake has been blacked out, including the lightweight aluminum intake tube and heat shield, making for a very stealthy appearance under the hood. The only thing that isn’t black, the reusable high flow intake filter and couplers, are finished off in BBK’s signature blue color. The chrome version of this intake obviously sports a bright chrome finish, and is perfect for those of you who enjoy a little more flash and bling under the hood. Just like the blacked out version, the chrome versions features a black aluminum heat shield, all the hardware necessary for install, along with the BBK signature blue high flow filter and couplers. A couple of big points with both of these intakes, for starters the blackout and chrome versions are both tune required intakes, meaning you can bolt them right up to your Coyote motor and go, without the need for an aftermarket tune, and still make more power than your factory airbox. In addition, both intakes do include an integrated MAF housing, and a bung for your interior sound tube. If you’re not familiar with what the interior sound tube is, it’s basically a bung here which connects a hose to the firewall, and pumps all that intake noise into the cabin. If you’re not a fan of this you can always use the included cap to plug it off. So that just leaves the big question, just how much power can we expect from using these intakes? Well we already got our baseline run out of the way by using our automatic 2011 GT behind me, now let’s get to work installing each one of these intakes and make a couple of runs. Installing either one of these BBK’s is a pretty straightforward task that should only take you about an hour in the driveway using basic hand tools. If you run into any problems you can always reference the manufacturer’s detailed instructions, located on this product page. So I know I said you don’t need to run a tune with these intakes from BBK, but, in the endless quest for maximum horsepower, we’re going to upload one of our custom Bama tunes to see what these intakes are really capable of on our Coyote motor. This tune’s going to do a couple of things for us, for one it’s going to optimize our spark timing, it’s going to optimize our cam timing, and it should get those air/fuel ratios right where they need to be. First we’re going to run the blackout intake from BBK, and then switch that out for the chrome version, and see what the numbers say. Our baseline run with our automatic 2011 GT gave us 336 horsepower, and 302 ft/lbs of torque. With our BBK/Bama combination, we put down 366 horsepower and 338 ft/lbs of torque, making for a peak gain of 30 horsepower over our baseline numbers, and gains of 37 horsepower and 58 ft/lbs of torque throughout the curve. Both of these intakes from BBK are a great option for the Mustang owner that is looking for a simple bolt on mod that will net you some decent gains without a tune and look great under the hood while doing so, and as always you can check them both out right here at AmericanMuscle.com

    Improves Horsepower. A BBK Cold Air Intake improves the airflow path into your Mustang's engine for more power and better acceleration all while filtering out harmful power robbing dust particles. This BBK CAI kit completely replaces your 2011-2014 GT and 2012-2013 Boss 302 Mustangs restrictive factory air box and paper filter element with a high flow BBK filter assembly for an increase of up to 16 rear wheel horsepower.

    No Tune Required. Unlike other Cold Air Intakes on the market for the 2011-2014 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 their high flow cotton air filter to be reusable. So no there is 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!

    Black Wrinkle Coat Finish. The BBK CAI not only improves your pony's horsepower and acceleration, but improves your Mustang's under hood appearance with an aggressive baked on black wrinkle powder coat finish.

    Easy Installation. BBK Cold Air Intake kits are designed to install with just basic hand tools. No extra modifications or special tools are required for an easy 1 hour installation. All parts and instructions are included.

    Application. This BBK Cold Air Intake System is specifically designed to fit the 2011-2014 5.0L V8 Mustangs and does

    not require re-tuning the vehicles computer for operation.

        Will the intake fit a bbk 85mm throttle body

        • It will be a tight fit for the coupler, however, the BBK Black Out Cold Air Intake will work with the BBK 85mm Throttle Body.

        Helpful (3)

        Would this intake work with a BBK 90mm TB and possibly a Boss intake manifold?

        • With the use of a coupler that is larger on the throttle body side, the BBK Black Out Cold Air Intake (11-14 GT) could certainly be installed. Furthermore, the intake is specifically designed for the GT's only, so it will not be a direct fit with the Boss Intake Manifold, however, with some slight DIY it could fit.

        Is this CARB approved? I was told no cold air intakes are CARB approved except the Airaid tube. So I bought that off of here and bought a K N drop in replacement air filter. To try and get around Californias standards

        • This is not CARB approved.

        The video used a BAMA tune to show the HP increase, but not without a tune. What were the results of HP/Tq without a tune?

        • You may see about 10 HP/TQ without a tune.

        Is there an adapter for the hoses that connect to the tube? I have one large, one small. This shows 2 small

        • The BBK Blackout Cold Air Intake will not utilize the factory equipped sound tube. The sound tube can either be tucked underneaths the intake or be be deleted with a proper sound tube delete kit.

            Not what I expected from such a respected brand

            This intake has been nothing but problematic since I bought it. It is nowhere near worth the 370 dollars that they charge. The intake itself fits just fine, though apparently BBK has changed the design since the product pictures were posted and the base of the filter is no longer a part of the packaging .This is not disclosed but you can tell it isn't part of it anymore via the parts list. None of the official pictures reflect this change though, leading to AM and I having a week long scavenger hunt for this part. AM support have been nothing but helpful, this review is not a reflection on them. The heat shield, like others mentioned, fits very loose and does not inspire confidence that you should have at this price point. The lower bulbs that look like they should secure the shield just hang there and don't do anything besides imply that maybe there is some possible sense of slight security if the stars align and mars is in retrograde. Completely. Useless. Those are not the causes of my issues though, just my observations. The cause of my issues is the fact that from the day I installed it, I can't get on it because instead of making more power all I hear is a rattle, almost a grinding, coming from the front left of the car and the car does not build power like it used to. If you haven't seen where an intake sits on a 2011 5.0, take a guess now. Turns out, the intake tube is made of metal! And metal is great at conducting heat! So instead of selling me a cold air intake BBK sent me a hot air intake that robs me of power and rattles. Now, AM has been nothing but helpful, and last I spoke to them they were waiting for me to replace it with my stock intake to see if that really is the cause. I am getting that taken care of currently, and if it turns out my car is just messed up, I will edit this review. I don't think that will be the situation, as my car never behaved like it does now up until I put this intake on, and the problems arose within half an hour of installing the intake. I even took the whole thing apart and put it back together, making sure not to miss a step, and still. Truly just a disappointment from a brand that I used to trust. If you value your money, do not spend it on this. Get a PMAS, KandN, CandL, maybe even an SR performance intake. Your wallet will thank you and so will your pony.

            Fitment issues

            Sturdy solid built product. Very pretty and added that little eye catching difference under the hood. One issue i had was...heat shield "box" that the cone filter fits in is kind of flimsy and didnt really connect as securely as i thought it should.

            Great product and easy inatall. Great videos on YouTube from BBK. Only knock was that the vacuum tube cap for manual transmission was not included in the kit. AM was great about getting us one. I actually did this for my neighbor. He has a 2011 GT 5.0

            Easy install! Sounds great!

            The install was really easy once I used the correct tools. I had difficulty getting the hose clamp open enough to get it connected to the intake tube. Other than that, it was a breeze! Gas mileage and power didn't change any noticeable amount, but she certainly runs smoother now!

            BBK COLD AIR INTAKE

            Good quality from BBK on their cold air intake. Install was easy, remove the stock airbox and install the new BBK. It took about an hour with basic tools. I only gave 4 stars because my kit did not include the vacuum plug used if running a manual trans., also my kit did not include instructions, which I really didn't need, but they would be beneficial for reference. Performance is good, I can notice a difference in throttle response. No tune required, but you would benefit from a tune, especially if you have other work done, like exhaust. Overall, I'm happy with the product and the fast free shipping from AM.

            Happy overall

            After the instillation was finished i am very happy with the results. The old air snorkel does not come out as easily as the instructions state. There are 4 retaining tabs on it. Also the stock breather tube had to stretch to fit.

            Great CAI

            This intake was very easy to install. Overall the performance gains are great with a factory tune. If you have an automatic, then it is best to eventually tune your car with an aftermarket tune in order to get your cam timing and shift points dialed in. The only problem I have is that my intake box came scratched on the side and was not very secured in the package that I received it in.

            Very impressed !

            I have to say I'm very impressed with BBK all together, I have their long tube headers and off road X pipe on my 2013 GT. And I decided it was time for a CAI now I wasn't just going to order the BBK black out CAI with out weighing my options with other CAI first. But when it came down to it after reading reviews and seeing the potential HP gain I could get with this CAI with or with out a tune I was sold. And just to top it off I went ahead and completed my BBK line up with a 90MM Throttle body. Absolutely no loss of power in lower RPMs. My throttle is more responsive, and between 2-5 RPMs I can hear a nice whistle, complements of my CAI delivering that cold air to my engine. Honestly it's like driving a new car. Installed both parts in 30 mins. Fits like a glove. Would highly recommend.

            Good deal for the money

            When I started modding my 2013, the first thing I noticed was the performance parts were far to expensive given the number of manufacturers making them. That being said, I looked at all of them prior to purchase. I read review after review and pages and pages on forums. At the end of the day, I don't see the benefit of paying more money for a different name brand when they all achieve the same basic function. BBK has long been in the Mustang game and they make some good quality products and have reasonable prices. Many will try and convince you that JLT or AirRaid make better intakes, but I would challenge them to show you how any intake outperforms another when they all have to funnel down into the same size Throttle Body to enter your engine. There was little if any noticable noise increase after install. The filter box was a bit of a pain to install, and it seems as though the inputs for the PCV system and "sound tube" are a touch shorter than needed, but it works with a little effort. Overall it performs the desired function and does so at one of the lowest prices.
