    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.

        5 Top Rated Questions

        Were does it have a carb sticker on it

        • 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.

        I have a 1987 lx and it’s a 2.3 would it still work with the 2.3 or is this just for the 50s

        • This is compatible with 5.0L models only.

        Will a typhoon intake, BBK strut tower brace work with this cold air intake?

        Does this come with a serial number? I have one on right now but they are asking me that it needs a serial number to be able to smog it.

        • No serial number is associated with the intake, but rather a sticker that shows the CARB number for the intake.

        Is there a way to convert this to a non-reusable filter fitment? I had one of the oiled filters in the past on a 1995 F150 and think I got too much oil in it, then the truck would not run well, so I abandoned the filter and went back to one time use filters. It also is a hassle cleaning the filter and re-oiling it.

        • We do not currently offer any alternative filters for this cold air intake. It would however be worth contacting BBK directly.

        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? 3 answers

            Air intake

            I bought this for a 1988 gt and was expecting a direct fit. When it got here I went to put it on and it wouldn’t fit so I went back on and read the fine print. I had to buy a adapter piece to make it fit. But I guess that’s my fault for not reading it all. Other wise it looks good on the car.

            BBK Cold Air Install not bad

            It was a pain in the butt getting the filter part on in the fendor but it fits good and looks nice. It does make it so you can really hear the air suck in so if you don't like that type of noise don't get it.

            Cold Air Intake

            Overall the install went well. I did have a problem getting the air cleaner over the tube. Sprayed it with silicone lube and it did go on. Performance wise it seemed to work well. I don't beat on mine as it has 104,xxx miles. But It looks great under the hood and that was a nice feature for me.

            Good product

            I had some trouble fitting it on my '88 fox body because you're supposed to buy an adaption kit if you have that year but i made it work and it's improved performance and I actually noticed a difference in overall sound production as well.

            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!

            Great CAI

            I had this same CAI on my 93 LX so of course I ordered another as soon as I got my 91 GT. When it comes to performance parts BBK is one of my favorites. It installed in about 30 minutes and looks great! Hardest part is getting the filter on but it's not that bad.
