Review & Install Video

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 V6 Mustangs restrictive factory air box and paper filter element with a high flow BBK filter assembly for an increase of 8 to 10 rear wheel horsepower.

No Tune Required. Unlike other Cold Air Intakes on the market for the 2011-2014 V6 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.

Application. This BBK Cold Air Intake System is specifically designed to fit the 2011-2014 3.7L V6 Mustangs and does not require re-tuning the vehicles computer for operation.

Other than the material they're made out of, what's the difference between the blackout bbk CAI and the chrome one? The chrome one says get up to 19 more hp with optional tune, and this one doesn't. But this one says it can give up to 10 RWHP.

JesseS

  • This BBK Cold Air Intake and the chrome version, item 56115, are the same unit as far as design and construction. We have used the chrome version on the dyno with custom tune, where we did not use the black one. The gains will be extremely similar both without and with a tune as the finish will do little to alter the gains. https://www.americanmuscle.com/bbk-cai-2011v6.html

Will this fit with the 73MM BBK throttle body? Also, I currently have a Diablo Sport 93 octane tune already installed on my car will my current programmer support it?

Hoon

  • No tune is required so your current tune will be compatible. And yes this will indeed fit with the 73mm BBK throttle body.

What is the recommended kit or products for cleaning this filter.

    BBK Blackout CAI

    the air intake is great the throttle response has improved and the exhaust sound has deepened. the torque has improved and overall its great, underhood apperance makes the car look more intimidating and the sound when driving sounds almost like a supercharger when you hit the gas. i had a few problems with the install though. the air sensor didnt fit so i had to dremel the inlet hole a little bit and the heat shield had to be bent a little in order to make it fit. they also forgot to give you the silicone nipple needed for manual transmissions. i just used silicone tape and problem solved! overall im extremely happy with everything and i recommend it anyone

    Excellent product

    Not only does American muscle have the best customer service the intake was amazing. BBK made an excellent intake. This was for my younger brother and it really made a difference in sound. In addition the intake along with his exhaust made it a great combo. It was super easy to install and everything fit perfectly Next mod is Bama tune

    Be sure you buy the tools you need before trying to install

    Im a beginner and I look at every install video on youtube and it took about 2 hours. One main reason it took so long was i didn't have to screw drivers I needed and I didn't know how to take out the radiator pins good. If you have the screw driver you need it should take too long. Love the way it looks and sounds

    I got the cold air kit and the 73 mm throttle body kit + tuner

    You could tell that these items were designed and engineered for the Mustang. they were installed in an hour. easiest bolt on after market kit ever. We did have some trouble with the tuner, because Ford had changed the tune from what was stamped on the computer. The staff at AM was right there to help get it correct and WOW. Horsepower and zero to 60 is an impressive 6 seconds now. From a V-6 that is indeed impressive. Plus now if we get an engine light we can plug the tuner in and get the code and call the Ford garage. Thanks guys!

    BBK Blackout Cold Air Intake (for 11-14 V6)

    This BBK Blackout Cold Air Intake is a excellent first mod for any Mustang! I installed this on my 2011 Mustang V6 equipped with the V6 Performance Package with 3.73 gears and it is straight out awesome! The BBK Blackout Cold Air Intake along with the Bama Tuner gives you a solid and very noticeable amount of horsepower increase and is worth every bit it cost. It only took around an hour to install just by following the directions and watching the install video by BBK and American Muscle. I would most definitely recommend this to any V6 owner as a first mod to their Mustang. Thanks to American Muscle for the awesome combo!

    2014 V6 3.7 mustang install

    I installed this in my 2014 v6 premium mustang. Before I go Into specifics I wanted to address some concerns with the fitting of the O2 sensor. I actually had an issue with fitting as well but realized this when I was using the stock factory screws to screw in the O2 sensor on the bbk intake. You should be supplied with two screws that are the correct measurement for perfect fitting. If you use the screws from your factory intake it will cause it to not fit, so double check this before you install! The Cold Air Intake did what it was intended to do and increase airflow to my engine and I really enjoy the deep growl and response in the pedal. I recommend watching the video of how to install it's fairly easy and that's cause this was the first CIA I have ever installed. On a side note I believed the hardest task was when removing the stock airflow connected to the front. On a side note and one of my major concerns with this product is that the stock intake had a flap that directed air into the intake and the bbk ( and maybe just how 2014 mustangs are built ) doesn't have anything directing airflow to the bbk intake and it's located directly behind the headlight.. So my concern is air flow.. Right now I'm trying to figure out how I can get fresh air to my new bbk intake..

    BEST BANG FOR THE BUCKS

    aside from very easy to install, the immediate throttle response is awesome .fit and finish exceptional and just not requiring a tune is icing on the cake! I have already noticed an increase of almost 2mpg mileage, but the fun aspect cannot be emphasized enough! now if my wife would let me drive just one more time....

    Noticeable power, noise, and throttle response

    I purchased this intake as the first mod for my 2014 V6. The install was easy enough, with the hardest part being removing the factory intake. After installing, my car had a noticeable "sucking" noise with even the slightest throttle application. Driving around town, you can hardly notice a difference between this and the stock intake. However, under hard acceleration, my car revs up quicker, has more power (probably less than a 10 hp increase, but it makes a difference), and has a more aggressive and guttural sound as it gets high the rev range. On top of all this, it looks great too. Highly recommend for the price.
