      Review & Installation Video

      Hey everybody, Alex with 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

        Nice looking

        Great addition to the motor. Makes the exhaust sound a bit more throaty. Not sure about any power increase but I really looks nice.

        5 2004 V6 - Alvarez1673 Installation Time: Less than 1 Hour

        A little tough but worth it

        This CAI is honestly worth the price it is. It gives you that little extra boost you've been needing and gives you more power in higher Rpms aswell. You can really hear the air being sucked on a cold start and has a whistle sound anytime the throttle is being pushed down. Installing it was a little tricky but with proper planning and and extra hand it won't take anymore than 30 minutes. The part I saw a lot of people have a problem with is putting the filter on itself bc they save it for last, try putting it together first while the elbow piece is able to move with the heat shield already put through the elbow piece as later you can mount the shield with the rubbers mounts by pushing them in.

        It’s a good unit in my opinion. I could feel a boost in power. OK...I needed that ! I almost had a blackout getting it in though. A really tight fit. But, the problem is no doubt me and my ability. If you are not a decent mechanic you should have a professional install this and save yourself some Excedrin.

        Love it!

        After installing, it felt like my car had better acceleration. While driving you can hear the air being pulled in through the filter. Super stoked about it.

        Easy installation! The only annoying part was getting the air filter in place, other than that the whole process was straightforward. I didn’t see any gains in mpg but acceleration is definitely quicker and more responsive! Looks great under the hood. Much better than the restrictive stock intake.

        Worth it

        Took about an hour to install, the hardest and longest part was putting the air filter on from under the car. Gives a deeper, louder, more aggressive tone. It gets really loud and good sounding when in full throttle, and especially after 3k rpms. Also noticed nice power gains and acceleration without tuning.

      If this filter is in the wheel well, doesn’t it get filthy really quick?

      • The filter is fairly protected in the fender well and shouldn't have issues with getting dirty very often.

      is this any different than the bbk chrome cai besides in apoearance

      • The BBK Blackout Cold Air Intake and the chrome intake would be the same other than the finish on the intakes correct.

      I have the sr performance cold air intake just wondering but is this one better? And will it make my car doing more aggressive than the one I got now or stay the same ?

      • Both intakes will essentially provide the same performance gains with or without a tune. The only noticeable difference between the two will be the finish.
