Improves Horsepower. The BBK Cold Air Intake kit completely replaces your 1989-1993 5.0 mustangs restrictive stock air box and paper filter 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 you can feel.

Reusable Filter. BBK designed the 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!

Chrome Finish. The BBK CAI not only Improves Horsepower and Acceleration, but improves your mustangs under hood appearance with a strikingly beautiful chrome finish. You'll be sure to win all the car shows with this jewel under the hood.

Simple Install. The BBK Cold Air Intake kit is relatively easy to install with basic hand tools. No extra modifications are required for the installation. See the video below for an overview of the installation process.

Application. This BBK Cold Air Intake is designed as a direct fit replacement for the 1989 to 1993 5.0L V8 Mustangs, and for the 1986 to 1988 Mustang owners that do not have the factory MAF just pick up the BBK Speed Density CAI Adapter Kit for a perfect fit!

Fits 1986-1988 with optional Speed Density Adapter available above or with Mass Air Conversion.

Were does it have a carb sticker on it

ConnorB

  • The carb sticker isint included on the intake itself, it is a separate sticker that would be placed in the engine bay either on the cowl section or the underside of the hood.

After how long should you change the filter? Whats the lifespan of the filter

V8Foxbody

  • The BBK Cold Air Intake utilizes a reusable filter, and I would recommend washing the filter and re-oiling the unit when it becomes dirty. If the filter becomes damaged or permanently tarnished, then we would recommend changing the filter.

Can water enter the engine while driving in the rain? The original factory intake was designed in a way to protect the engine from water entering and causing hydrolock. The after market CAI filter is inside the fender with no protection. Can water splash into the intake when driving through the rain or while washing the car at a car wash with an under body spray?

LOWELL

  • not if you have the fender covers ... if you removed them you might wanna build a bypass for the water to run out

The best think that I got from this intake is the Sound, now car really roars when you lay into it. Very addictive, my right foot now cramps.

    Looks, sounds, and performs very nicely!

    One of my best purchases from A.M. Installation is no issue, comes with all you need. You will need to work inside the front right fender. I love the sound it makes everytime I hit the gas. Even if you don't feel a big difference in performance, you know it's there. Bonus, engine bay looks so much better with it.

    Awesome product!

    Great product! Everything that you need is in the box. Fairly easy to install but make sure you install the filter on the short elbow before you attempt to connect everything together. This will make it MUCH easier to put together. It is nearly impossible to install the filter from the inside of the fender. Overall, I'm very impressed with the looks, functionality and price of this item. Highly recommended!

    BBK CAI

    Not sure how much HP/TQ is gained, but you can feel it right off the bat. Initial acceleration is noticeably quicker. I actually enjoy the slight sound you hear when accelerating from air being sucked in that is not there with stock intake. Only downfall is changing/cleaning the conical filter. I have the patience of a saint, but getting the filter back on from under the wheel well is basically a blind hit-or-miss, even with two people. Still, I love the BBK CAI! Any part or mod I need that I can buy through AmericanMuscle.com, I do. Great prices, GREAT SHIPPING, and great support service. 1995 Mustang GT HO: BBK CAI, FRPP 3:73 gears, SPEC Stage 2 clutch kit and and flywheel, STEEDA clutch adjustment kit, BBK 70mm throttle body, MAGNAFLOW X-pipes, MAGNAFLOW MAGNAPACK exhaust, 17" Cobra R wheels and hood, HID headlight dual beam converter kit, 8mm MALLORY wires.

    First things first the air filter is the only challenging thing. So if you can get a buddy I recommend it. I did it alone was interesting to say the least. But with my custom Flo-master exhaust it sounds so much better and breathes the way it wants

    good

    the parts come prepared and ready to fit, the only problem that i had was that my car is an 86 5.0that didnt come with a CAI sensor.. so make sure your car has a CAI sensor or you will have to order the CAI adapter. and i would say start with putting the filter on first. hassel if your trying to put it on last through the fender.

    This is a quality, well made piece. The fit and function is perfect! CARB EO Approved for California use. You can tell the engine is getting more air and the fender mounted filter is truly drawing cool air unlike ram air intakes. Highly recommend!

    Suck it

    Pretty decent product sounds awesome when you can here it sucking air at high RPMs I installed this with a 70mm throttle body/EGR spacer and there was a noticable power gain. How ever the fitment is a bit tricky and if your not careful you,ll scratch up the inside of your throttle body if it's bigger than stock.
