    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.

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


    • 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?


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

      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 thing allows the engine to breathe deep. I have one on my 95 cammed cobra and this went on my dads 90 gt with a cam. It's huge and pulls through the fender for cool air

      BBK CAI

      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.

      Fox body

      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

      Simply awesome!

      This was the first thing i bought to start upgrading my stock 88 and let me tell you that the sound my engine makes as it gobles up the cool air is awesome and the look under my hood is off the charts! I did a lot of research on these cod air intakes because the price range varies so much. But the $$$ was well spent on this product!

      it's OK

      got mine installed, easy enough. only problem is when I was driving I was hearing knocking... didn't know where the noise was coming I thought it's my transmissions but ended up being the CAI tube is knocking against the chassis. I took the top robber the part that goes into the TB, removed a small piece and installed it where it was knocking, problem solved. I'm sure tons of customers have complained about this issue just surprised they never bothered perhaps including another piece of rubber that's why I give a 4.

      The best CAI kit for a foxbody in my opinion

      I've been wanting to buy this BBK Cold Air Intake since I got 89 5.0 LX (June 2012) to replace the no name brand CAI intake the previous owner has put in that sits right on top of the block. I really like the design and the fact that I was able to line up the filter and piping and see it go through the opening in the fender with no need for extra modification to do the install. I think the stainless steel will add some more pop under my hood, especially after I purchase a polished upper and lower intake manifold from AM! I just need to find the time and a day when it's not so cold in my garage that i can put my new BBK inner fender CIA kit in. This was a great buy on Cyber Monday with fast shipping. American muscle has been the best source for me in finding the parts I want/need as well as showing me items that can improve my performance, style, and they have a great selection of stock and after market replacement parts which I have ordered in the past. I am one happy and satisfied customer and find AM to be the best source for me as a first time foxbody owner in the process of modifying, interior and exterior upkeep, and finding OEM parts that fit.
