    Stephanie with AmericanMuscle.com, and this is my review of BBK's Cold Air Intake for the 2015 and '16 S550 GTs, in either this blacked out version or chrome version. This cold air intake option from BBK does not require a tune, so this is going to be a good option for those S550 owners who are interested in and want the benefits of a cold air intake, but maybe aren't quite ready for a tune yet. We ran our S550 on the Dyno and got our baseline numbers, which were 392 horsepower and 361 foot-pounds of torque, and then ran it with the BBK intake and a 93 octane tune from Bama because we wanted to see the full potential of this intake. With the intake and tune, our numbers were 413 horsepower and 368 foot pounds of torque, giving us peak gains of 21 horsepower and 6 foot pounds of torque. So peak gains are great and all, but the real thing I look for is differences throughout the curve on your driving RPMs, which is what you're actually going to notice performance wise. And throughout the curve, we're seeing gains of 21 horsepower and 30-foot pounds of torque, which is a pretty big torque gain and something that you're really going to feel driving. I did take this out for a drive, and I did notice some big differences, which a lot of them can be from the tune, no doubt, but there is a big improvement in low RPMs, where we saw that torque gain, fifth and sixth gear were more driveable, and the car was way more responsive in higher gears. I noticed that I was able to drive right out of the lower RPMs without any hesitation from the car, and these low and mid range RPM improvements, are something that I also noticed in the lower gears as well, especially between lights and getting up to speed, and even merging on the highway in fifth gear. The car is much smoother overall, it's happier shifting, and the throttle response is noticeably improved. The main benefit of a cold air intake is increasing the air flow to your GT's engine, and providing improvements in power and acceleration over the restrictive stock air box. Now even though you do not need a tune for this particular intake, just keep in mind that you're going to see the full potential in power and acceleration when combined with a custom tune. So taking a look at the intake itself, it includes a cotton-element filter that's going to replace the factory paper filter, which is nice because it's a reusable filter that can be cleaned, re-oiled, and reinstalled. Like I said, BBK offers this intake in two finishes, either this wrinkle black powder-coated version that's a little bit more low-key, or a nice chrome option if you prefer a little flash under the hood. Both options seem pretty solid from looking at them right here on the table. They're smooth on the inside, and come with new couplers and clamps, and it's also worth mentioning, even though I know that technically this is a performance part, I do think the BBK looks nicer than the stock air box does under the hood. The intake comes with this black heat shield no matter which color option you go with. If you're not a fan of the open-element filter and prefer an enclosed air box, there are a handful of other options on the site that you can check out. As for price, this cold air intake option is going to be coming in at that $300 to $400 price range, which is pretty much in line with most of the other cold air intake options on the site. The chrome option will cost a little bit more than the blacked out version. Install of the intake is fairly easy and straightforward, but I will say, just make sure you follow the included directions since the intake is a tight fit, so installing out of order might make it a little hard to get everything into place. This is still a one wrench install, which should take an hour or less to get done, and all you really need is a 10 mill, a flat head for the plastic pins, and some pliers to remove the hose clamps. Overall, the BBK is a solid intake with good construction and a reusable filter, which is nice. This is a good choice for anyone who's not ready for a tune, but like I mentioned and showed on the Dyno, the best results will always come when using a tune. I definitely think that either option would look much better than the factory intake under the hood, and price wise, it's pretty much in line with most of the other cold air intakes on the site, whether open-element or enclosed. But as always, check this out for yourself online along with all of your other options. And for all things Mustang, keep it 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 S550 GT Mustangs restrictive stock air box and paper filter element with a high flow BBK filter assembly for an increase of up to 21 Horse Power and 30 ft/lb of Torque in the low to mid RPM range.

    No Tune Required. Unlike other Cold Air Intakes on the market for the 2015-2017 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 stock 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.

    Recommended Upgrade. Even though a re-tune is not required for operation, AmericanMuscle recommends a Bama custom tune with a Mustang Handheld Tuner to reprogram the vehicles computer (ECU) to get the best performance possible out of this cold air intake.

    Application. This BBK Cold Air Intake System is specifically designed to fit the 2015-2017 GT Mustangs equipped with the Coyote 5.0L 4 valve V8 engine and does not require re-tuning the vehicles computer for operation.

    I am worried about washing my car/rain water dripping onto the air filter and through the heat extractor on the hood above the air filter.getting sucked into the engine. Will the color on the filter fade? Would the mesh rust? Thank You

    Danny

    • This cold air intake will be a great addition to your Mustang and would not cause an issue for you when washing the car or when it rains as long as the intake itself is not drenched in water directly. The filter will not fade as long as its maintained well and re-oiled once cleaned, also the mesh will not rust at all.

    So why won’t this intake work on 2018 5.0 engine?

    • The BBK Black Out Cold Air Intake is designed to work with the 15-17 Mustang GT models only. Ford made changes to the 5.0 for the 2018 model that will require a different intake.

    KaiwenZ

    • I would suggest purchasing the BBK Air Filter Cleaner & Re-Oil Kit which can be found here: https://www.americanmuscle.com/bbk-air-filter-cleaner-re-oil-kit-79117.html Easy to use, this BBK Air Filter Cleaner and Re-Oil Kit is simple for anyone. You remove the filter from your BBK cold air intake and apply the cleaning solution. Then you need to rinse it off thoroughly. After you allow it to it to air dry you apply the oil to the filter and reinstall in the intake housing.

      Mass Air Sensor

      When installing the Mass Air sensor into the new cold air intake tube be sure to use the 2 small screws in the hardware package. The screws from the stock mass air sensor are not the same thread. I broke off the head of the screw because I didn't use the enclosed screws but the instructions could be a little more specific. It says to "use enclosed hardware" and when I looked in the bag I didn't see any "hardware". I think the instructions should specifically say "use the enclosed screws".

      Review from BBK Chrome Cold Air Intake (15-17 GT)

      sweet, but

      I really like the way this looks with my Lightning Blue 2017 GT. Throttle response is much improved and the motor seems to like being able to breathe now. The instalation was not real easy(and I have worked on cars my whole life), instructions would have been a nice touch, especially for the price. And like others have said, I had to buy a cap for the extra hole on the adapter. Would it kill them to include other plastic adapters to fit all models? And the end fit just looks a little off. No big deal I guess, just making observations.

      CAI install and review

      Pros: Fast and easy install, looks great and I can hear and feel a noticeable gain. Shipping was right on time. Cons: Don’t expect any instructions or part list in the box, they aren’t included. Online instructions were easy to follow until I ended up with an open vacuum tube on the tree and no explanation as to why. I ended up just capping it.

      BBK cold air intake

      I just installed my BBK cold air intake. And sounds Awesome. And from 3,200 - 4,000 rpm it has a very improved sound. It has that deep throat sound that a Mustang GT is suppose to have. Louder for sure. I love it. I'll see what difference it makes at track in few weeks. Got my baseline last night before I did any Mods. But I'll say the sound alone is worth it to me. If it adds the 20 HP it will be a bonus. If you want a very a very quick install of one that will sound and run great. BBK is my recommendation. I love it.

      BBK ,INTAKE NOT IMPRESSED

      The BBK intake for the 2015 mustang was nothing like I expected. The fit was very tight where the filter rubbed up against the body and because of the open hood vents , whenever you wash your car or even when it rained, water always falls directly on the filter causing it to show rust stains very quickly. also this intake doesn't require a tune but when installed the throttle response is affected.

      sounds like turbo

      I bought the JLT diver side oil catch can, but just don't fit. With this air intake, it has more space between the heat shell and the motor, but the designer should've considered some people remove the sound tube, and the JLT hose doesn't plugs in, so I cut the port, now it plugs in.

      Bad Design Overall

      During installation, found that the vacuum line on the passenger side that connects to the rubber duct has an interference fit if you have an oil/air separator installed. Makes it impossible to connect that line. Also, the air filter was difficult to install for two reasons, the size of it and the overlapping of the metal partition on the clamp. Other Issues during install, The kit I received was missing the mass air flow sensor screws, missing the interconnect tube for the three vacuum lines on the driver side and the rubber grommet for the mass airflow sensor wiring. After all this, I reinstalled the original air intake box and duct. Going to exchange for a CandL or an Air raid CAI. This is purely bad designing and QA on BBK for this CAI.

      Review from BBK Chrome Cold Air Intake (15-17 GT)

      BBK Cold Air Intake

      I just recently installed this BBK Cold Air Intake on my 2016 Mustang 5.0.......I did not do a tune, yet. I'll have to say even without a tune I can tell a difference in my car. It sounds better and throttle response is better, maybe a little more power, but no way to really tell that because it never put on a dyno. Now it says it takes 30 minutes to 1 hour for install and that may be true for some, but it took me about 2 hours. It was my first time installing something like this. Looks great and sounds great.
