    Review & Installation Video

    Review & Install Video

    Hey everybody, Alex with americanmuscle.com. Today, I'm bringing you my quick review and installation of BBK's Blackout Cold Air Intake, fitting the 1999 through 2004 V6 Mustang. So BBK's a company that's been in the aftermarket Mustang community for quite some time now. They do not need an introduction, however, if you've been living under a rock for the past couple of years, this outfit's been out for almost 30 years. They make a very premium option kit for most, if not all Mustangs on the roads today. So this should definitely appeal to my New Edge V6 owners out there that are looking to get into a premium cold air intake option. It's gonna help with horsepower, torque, throttle response, all while looking great under the hood. And a great aspect about most, if not all cold air intake options for the New Edge V6 owner out there, is that they're not gonna install with too much elbow grease, and for that, I'm gonna giving this a very easy 1 outta 3 wrenches on our difficulty meter, and about 30 minutes to an hour for the wrenching, and I'm gonna show you how coming up soon. But aside from its tough look thanks to that black wrinkled coated finish, this 50-state CARB certified intake is not gonna require a custom tune or a handheld tuner, which we all know can be a little bit on the pricey side. Now while we're on top like a pricing, I did mention previously that this will be a premium option, and despite it being as such, you should expect to be spending 200 bucks to get into this, which still is going to be about $75 to $80 less than K&N's option. And to get into their's, you're merely paying for the name, as well as an ABS plastic instruction. And like most, if not all cold air intake manufacturers out there, no matter the make or model, we're gonna see that this is going to come along with a washable and reusable filter, which means that once it's dirty, you simply pull it out, give it bath, reoil it, put it back in it, and you're good to go. So switching gears to the installation portion of the video, just like I had said up top, you're looking at a very easy and straightforward 1 out of 3 wrenches on our difficulty meter here, and about 30 minutes to an hour for the wrenching. But looking ahead here, some things I'd make sure to have on hand would only be a full socket set of flat head screwdriver and just a little bit of patience. So to start, you're gonna wanna begin by pulling your negative battery terminal, and then by pulling your mass airflow sensor. After that, you're gonna wanna disconnect your crankcase vent hose, along with the clamps, working up to the throttle body, then loosen and remove the bolt that's gonna be holding in the cleaner to the fender well, and then pull that outta your car. So after that, you're gonna wanna release the clamps that are essentially holding the cleaner in [SP], and then move down to your mass airflow sensor. So after that, guys, you're damn near done, and it's more or less just gonna be assembling your cold air intake kit. Talking about your heat shield and bracket, getting your hoses together, clamping everything down, give it a good once over, and then you're good to go. So that's gonna conclude the installation and my review of BBK's Blackout Cold Air Intake, fitting 1999 through 2004 Mustang V6, available right here at americanmuscle.com

    Improves Horsepower. This BBK Cold Air Intake kit completely replaces your V6 Mustangs restrictive stock 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 pulls cooler denser air from inside the fender well to make more power that you can feel.

    No Tune Required. Unlike other Cold Air Intakes on the market for the V6 Mustangs the BBK Performance 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 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 Performance 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.

    Simple 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 Performance Mustang Cold Air Intake Kit is 50-state smog legal under Carb EO# D-245-14 .

    Application. This BBK Cold Air Intake System is specifically designed to fit the 1999 to 2004 Mustangs equipped with the 3.8L or 3.9L V6 engine and does not require re-tuning the vehicles computer for operation.

    Do this intake includes a CARB EO sticker for the smog tech to identify?

    TroyF

    • The BBK Blackout Cold Air Intake is tested and approved by the California Air Resource Board meaning it will come with the certified CARB sticker you would place on the intake.

    Will this intake fit the MAC 73mm air sensor ? And does the chrome produce more than the all black ?

    Eric

    • This BBK Blackout Cold Air Intake will fir the 73MM throttle body as it has clamps that can be adjusted to fit. The color of the intake has no effect on its performance, that is just for looks.

    What will the hp and toque build up be with a tune?

    2DANK

    • The BBK Blackout Cold Air Intake will typically show gains of around 10-12hp without a tune, and around 18-25hp when installed with a tune. Torque gains will be in line with these numbers as well.

      Whistles at above 3k rpm on second gear!

      I love this cai compared to candl. The installation was a p.I.t.a. though, especially putting the air filter under the passenger side wheel fender. A friend pushed the filter through the bumper while I pulled the fender cover just enough to be able to grab the filter through the hole where the OEM filter took place. Other than that it works well, no check engine light.

      BBK black out

      The cai from bbk is awesome. I love the sound it makes. It was a little hard to get the filter in the fender wall (had to go in from the bottom of the fender) but that only took a few more minutes. I can't say if I gained anything but I do feel a difference in gas pedal.

      BBK CAI 01 V6 Mustang

      Installation: The Installation was straight forward, I had no issues with improper fitting. In addition, there is YouTube videos that can assist with procedure. Time: removal and installation took about 2 hours. Difficulty: The job is Fairly simple, did require a second set of hands for filter install via wheel well for my make and model. Sound/HP Gain: The CAI does provide a nice sound at higher RPM while under load. HP Gain is not dramatic but the performance does feel smoother and less strain is evident compared to stock.

      Instant Boost to Acceleration (but not MPGs ;) )

      Very easy to install, no modifications needed. To install properly, you may need to remove the tire from the passenger side, and the plastic guard behind the front fender, but that is minor. I noticed an big increase in my acceleration power, and it sounds great hearing the larger air filter sucking up large amounts of air! This is the easiest way to increase power quickly if you only have basic motor knowledge. No tuning required.

      Great mod for the price, great essential

      I always check the reviews on the potential products before I buy and I understand the importance of knowing exactly what you are getting. This air intake is a GREAT change to the car and can be installed by anyone. The difference in sound and power are extremely noticeable and it looks great under the hood. The difference in sound, for my particular mustang, is right after 2000 RPM and it really gives your V6 the sound and rumble of a mustang. Definitely recommend for anyone that wants to increase the quality of the sound, horsepower, and overall driving experience.

      04 V6 Auto

      It's been almost a month with this install. My husband (who has 20 years of auto body experience) and his co-worker that is an auto mechanic installed this for me. Fit was ok. The part didn't fit perfectly with my MAF sensor housing, not sure why. We had to drill a hole a little above it on the plastic to be able to get the screws to match up. It was a minor fix, but just be aware of this possible fluke. Looks beautiful in the car. We didn't realize the sound it would make since none of us have actually heard a live CAI, sounds kind of hallow noise once you start the car up, but as you start driving it starts to go away. There's a nice whistle to it when you rev and go at high speeds. I've definitely noticed a difference and my husband now likes to drive my car. There used to be a hesitation while drivings as it shifted automatic gears, now there isn't any at all; much smoother and a little more kick. I live in DC area, so it's been getting cold here (30 degrees at coldest so far) and only once it didn't start up on the first try. This has definitely helped start ups in cold weather. It's a great price and it only took a 1 1/2 hours with two mechanics that knew what they were doing.

      BBK Cold Air Intake

      This product seems to have made a big difference on my car! My 03 V6 has dual Magnaflow exhaust on it and almost immediately I could tell the difference on start up! Drove it around the neighborhood a bit just to see what it sounds like. There's a very distinct suction sound coming from the fender. Install on this by myself did take a while though. Took forever to get the plastic piece out of the feeder hose and trying to get the filter on the end piece was the worst part. But with some effort and an extra hand it can easily be done. Recommend 2 people for putting the filter on.

      Bbk cai 01 v6

      Overall these product is amazing! You can defiantly tell the difference between your stock and your cai! The bbk sucks in way more air and makes your engine roar!! Also at around 3000rpms you can hear a nice whistle. Not extremely loud, but loud enough to hear and love. The throttle response gets better and tighter after you install your bbk but it feels good. Overall this is a great product and I highly recommend it. Great mod or first timers or learners. Thanks American muscle!!

      Works like a pro!

      So it took a while for me to assemble it about 2 hours, that's from someone who never messed with air intakes. This one adds a cool whistle when i hit the gas and change gears! Not too loud, which is perfect, sounds great. It does add a decent amount of torque and horsepower for $200! Especially since it doesn't require a tune.
