      Review & Installation Video

      Hey I’m Justin with, and this is my breakdown of BBK’s cold air intake kit system fitting the 3.9 and 3.6L motor found in all 99-04 V6 Mustangs. BBK is one of the pioneers in late model EFI Mustang performance, and continues to make quality parts that aim to get more power out of your ride. The first thing I noticed when taking a closer look at this intake is that super bright chrome finish along with a splash of blue throughout the intake, which is typically a calling card of any BBK product. Alright, so we know it looks good, but how does it perform? Well, we’re going to find out in a minute but first let’s check out what’s included in the package. Of course you get the reusable filter and the bright chrome intake tubing, but you also get the fender mounting plate, these nice blue couplers, and all the hardware necessary for installation. I can tell you that this kit from BBK will allow more air into your engine, by replacing that ultra restrictive factory airbox with this 3 inch durable tubing, and that high flow intake filter which sits right in the fender well, allowing for maximum cool air which will equate to more power. In order to find out what are gains will be using this intake, we need to grab a quick baseline number first, on our 2000 V6 behind me, and then get to work installing the BBK. Getting the BBK bolted up to your ride is a very straightforward task that should take you roughly an hour from start to finish using standard hand tools. You will need to grab your factory MAF sensor and transfer it over to your new BBK, but other than that, everything’s completely plug and play. I will say in order to run this cold air intake from BBK you do not need a performance tune, however we’re going to upload one of our custom Bama tunes which should really maximize our setup. This is going to optimize our spark timing, adjust our air/fuel ratio, and firm up the shifts on our automatic. With our intake installed and our tune uploaded, we’re going to do one more pull on the dyno, and see what our gains our versus our baseline numbers. For our baseline run with our automatic 2000 V6, gave us 156 horsepower and 192 ft/lbs of torque, with our BBK installed, we were able to put down 170 horsepower and 203 ft/lbs of torque, making a peak gain of 14 horsepower over our baseline numbers, and gains of 16 horsepower and 16 ft/lbs of torque throughout the curve. The BBK’s flashy chrome finish, decent power gains, and reasonable price, make it an excellent choice for any New Edge Mustang out there and a great entry level power mod.

        Great Intake

        Excellent intake, performs well and looks good under the hood. If you have a throttle body spacer, you will need to take some of the metal off the longer piece that connect the throttle body to the MAF. I used a metal saw and got it to fit no problem.

        Pretty straight forward

        It took maybe and hour...the air filter is bigger than the hole in the engine bay so you'll need 2 people to put it in or you'll have to remove the fender also came with no instructions (glad I have 2 of these cars and my other already had one put in) but adds a nice whistle when hitting the gas and I think I fell the gains from it.

        Great quality product!

        Got my BBK Cold Air Induction system about 2 weeks ago and love it! I’ve noticed a gain in horsepower and I can tell the engine is breathing better overall. I’m very happy with my purchase and definitely recommend it as a great add on mod.

      • It is best to place the CARB Certification sticker somewhere where it can be clearly visible to the CARB number can be clearly identified when you take it in for Smog Inspection. Generally we see people put them on the intake tube.
