Just what i wanted
Fitting the intake might take sometime as it is not so easy as it looks in the video. But fits perfectly and performance gain is noticeable too.Helpful (0)

Bought this as a gift for my boyfriend. Super disappointed he took his engine apart assuming American Muscle is a reputable site and they didn’t even include all the parts. How can we install this without the rubber caps?? Called them and they weren’t sympathetic in any way. They said they would send out the missing parts and a few days later we still have yet to even get a confirmation email that it’s sent out. INCLUDE ALL THE PARTS TO AVOID INCONVENIENCE OF A CUSTOMER TAKING APART THEYRE ENGINE ALL TO HAVE TO PUT IT BACK TOGETHER.Helpful (6)

While not having any noticeable power gains after install, it makes up for it buy delievering a deeper tone to my stock exhaust and engine. If your looking for something to give you a little more “umf” on the throttle and make your v6 start to sound worthy of the muscle car title, this intake is defined for you. My only complaint is that around 5-6k revs there’s a very loud raddling noise coming from the engine bay. Besides that I’d say it’s a solid buy.Helpful (4)

Noticeable power gain. Looks great. Sounds great. Can really hear the whoosh of the air being sucked in. Great buy honestly and easy to install.Helpful (6)

Did not fit my 2013 v6
I’m not sure if it’s just mine or the whole intake but the connection between the new intake and the throttle body did not remotely fit, get a airraid or k and n insteadHelpful (6)

Not worth the money!!!!
Install was quick and easy but not efficient and doesn’t do the car justice. Company claims with no tune you will benefit possibly but without a tune as of now I’m having idle surges, car feels like it’s loading up as if carbureted and actually threw a check engine light shortly after install. Also in the new air filter housing there is no section for the ram air duct that comes stock with the car to push air into the intake system. Would not buy twice hoping I can still return.Helpful (7)
Will it fit my 73mm after market throttle body
Yes, this BBK cold air intake will indeed be compatible with a 73mm throttle body.
I have never purchased a reusable air filter. How do you clean it and what type of oil is used for re-oiling? where do I find this oil and does the kit come with any oil? I can do most re-mods, but I just never tried this one. Thanks for your help and advise. Wayne47
Step 1: Liberally spray Filter Cleaner onto both sides of filter and allow to soak for 10 minutes to loosen the dirt. Do not allow cleaner to dry on air filter. Step 2: Rinse your filter Step 3: Dry your filter Step 4: apply oil You can find nice little kits for cleaning your air filter at most auto-parts stores, or you can even contact BBK directly!
Air Intake through front grill? Whats up everyone! Quick question; The heat shield that comes with the BBK CAI doesn't seem to hook up with the factory air inlet from the grill so I was wondering will that rob me of any HP or should I replace the shield or make my own?
All the factory stuff is removed - it's actually pretty easy. The hardest part was removing the part that connects to the front of the car. The instructions say pull gently upwards - they don't tell you that you have to push a couple of tabs first. If a part does not remove easily, there is probably a tab that needs to be pushed. I was picky about removing all my original equipment because in a few year, I have to put it all back when I have to get mine smogged. And no, you won't lose any HP and the CAI will really improve throttle response and I think it sound great.
If I add a tuner to this cold air intake will it give me more hip? How much more hp will I gain?
sure, actully the cold air intake may gain up to 8-10 HP. If you add tune to it, you will get over 26 HP. the tuner by it self gains 16 HP. if you go to tuners> bama SCT tune v6> you will know more when you see the video. :) hope that helped you
I have this unit but would like to purchase an additional filter, how can I purchase another filter, just the filter?
Unfortunately we do not offer a replacement filter for this intake.
Hello! Unfortunately the BBK cold air intake is not CARB legal for use in California.
The BBK Cold Air Intake will add up to 19 HP depending on what kind of tune you are running.
The weight for the BBK Cold Air Intake will be around 12 lbs.
Unfortunately, BBK does not offer a red replacement filter for your BBK cold air intake.
Unfortunately, the hex shaped screwdriver is not included in this kit.
I apologize I am not sure what kind of stickers you would be referring to. The this BBK Cold Air Intake kit will only come with the cold air intake.
NO, THE SUPER CHARGER COMES WITH ITS OWN COLD AIR ITAKE SYSTEM, THE BBK IS TOO SHORT TO REACH . PAPPY
Hello, I'm assuming you mean a "cover" for the extra intake that is used by the automatic transmission. Mine did come with one, however I've read many reviews where people say that theirs did not. Please don't let the lack of a port cover stop you from buying this CAI - a quick stop at the parts store and a couple of bucks will solve the problem if yours doesn't come with one.
