    Hey everyone I’m Justin with AmericanMuscle.com, and today I’ll be taking a detailed look into this budget minded BBK cold air intake system for all 96-04 Mustang GTs. BBK has always played a big role in producing quality aftermarket Mustang parts ever since making some of the first EFI products for the early Fox body Mustangs back in the 80s. This kit is going to help give your ride more horse power and torque, and also add a nice throaty growl in the process by replacing that stock restrictive factory air box with everything you see here. The kit includes both Chrome intake tubes, your new heat shield, reusable high flow filter and all your necessary hardware. Now besides that quality construction that bright chrome finish is sure to make a nice improvement under any hood. This kit does not require a tune so it’s a great option for someone who might just be starting to mod their car and aren’t quite ready for a tune just yet. However if your after big power like we are today then you will definitely want to pair this intake up with a custom tune. But in order to see how much power this intake is going to make we need to get a baseline number down first from our 2000 GT back there. Our automatic 2000 GT Mustang just put down 222 horse power and 260 ft/lbs of torque in stock form. Now we’re going to install our BBK cold air intake system, which should only take us about an hour using standard hand tools. You will notice that this intake is equipped with a hole for your intake air temperature sensor, shown right here. Now if your car isn’t equipped with one of these sensors don’t worry, just go to your local part store, pick up a rubber plug for a few bucks and plug the hole, problem solved. So even though you don’t need to run a tune with this intake we’re looking for maximum gains here today, so with that being said we’re going to pair it up with our custom 93 octane Bama tune to optimize your spark timing, perfect those air fuel ratios and give you drastically improved throttle response. Alright now that we’ve got our BBK installed and our tune uploaded lets run our GT one more time on the DynoJet and see how we did. Our BBK equipped GT made a total of 245 horsepower and 288 ft/lbs of torque making for a peak gain of 23 horsepower over our baseline numbers and a very impressive gain of 31 horsepower and 47 ft/lb of torque throughout the curve. This intake from BBK is an all-around performer, not only did we make some serious power but the chrome finish really improved our under the hood appearance as well and it didn’t cost us an arm and a leg in the process. So if you’re looking for a quality intake from a company that loves Mustangs just as much as we do, then you will really enjoy this cold air from BBK.

    Improves Horsepower. The BBK Cold Air Intake kit completely replaces your 1996-2004 GT mustangs restrictive stock air box and paper filter element 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 that you can feel.

    Reusable Filter. BBK designed the high flow cotton 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!

    Bright Chrome Finish. The BBK CAI not only improves your pony's horsepower and acceleration, but improves your mustangs under hood appearance with a strikingly beautiful chrome finish. You'll be sure to attract attention at all the car shows with this jewel under the hood.

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

        After Installation Is It Suppose To Make Noise? Bought It Installed It, Works Great But I've Been hearing A Whistling Noise Every time I Step on The Gas, It Doesn't Do It When In Park, But Only On Drive, and It Only Started Making That Noise After I Installed It, I Checked The Only Two Hoses That Are Connected To It And They Are Tight And Nothing Is Loose??? What Is It?

        • What you're hearing is perfectly normal. The whistling type sound you are hearing is the increased ammount of airflow being pulled through the filter. That's why you don't hear it at idle or low RPMs, but it is noticable at high RPM. The only time you hear it is when the engine is sucking air at high volumes. This is a good thing to hear since it means that your engine is getting the air it needs instead of suffocating and producing less horsepower. I personaly love hearing it at the top end of each gear!

        what about puddles though? like even if the puddle cant reach the fenderwell where intake is what about if you run over a big puddle and water splashes up into the intake wont it suck it into the engine like would it hurt anything? or is that not enough water to really do any damage because i know that intake provides alot more suction

        • Wet weather driving is not an issue with this intake. I had this intake for two years, and unfortunatly drove during two seperate hurricanes. As long as your vehicle is equipped with the factory splash guards and fender well liner, this intake will not have a problem with water.

        im leaning towards getting this intake but i wont this rust after after awhile and if you live in a area with rain the filter is inside the fenderwel which is low to the ground and can suck up the rain

        • I had this intake on my 2002 GT for three years in eastern north carolina and it began to rust. I switched to the Airaid kit and actually picked up three horsepower over the BBK as well as a higher quality filter and better construction.

        What's the clicking noise? Just installed this and like the other guy hearing a whistling noise mine is more clicking. Double checked everything and all is tight and secure. Cant figure out where is coming from. Only happens when I'm giving her throttle. Fine at idle and fine just cruising. Almost sounds like something is rattling. IDK. Any idea would help. Thanks much!!

        • maybe the heat shield is rattling against the mount in the engine bay when you give it throttle the motor does move a little so the intake will move along with it. So maybe the heat shield is hitting the stock filter hole when you get on it.

        Do you need a gasket to put between the maf and the rest of the pipe? I don’t see it in the picture, is it needed or you just put the bolts on

        • No gasket would be needed. It would be as shown in photo.

            Great intake. Poor fitment.

            Hardest CAI to install. I’ve installed more than one in the past in under 10 minutes. This one took me probably two hours just fumbling around with the parts, trying to get everything match up and fit right. Should’ve came with a new gasket and hoses but oh well. Sounds great though. Gives deeper exhaust tone and can definitely hear it sucking in air and whistling almost throughout all RPMs which I enjoy.

            Installation is far more trouble than it's worth

            The previous owner of my GT had this product put on at some point. I decided to clean the filter along with the complete fluid service I was doing, and boy was that a mistake! I've never experienced a direct fit system that was so difficult to install. The install on this requires two people with long, skinny arms and the grip strength of a brick mason. After about an hour and a half of calmly dusting my knuckles, my hands and forearms are bloody and i've given up. I had to stop before I hulk'd the whole thing right into the dirt. I don't know how the original install looked so clean and tidy, but they must've removed the wheel and inner fender guards which I have no interest in doing to clean an air filter. At this point I'm ready to just drop the money on something else. Good thing this isn't my daily driver. Don't get me wrong; BBK makes great products and has for years, but this thing needs to have a second look taken at it. Impossible fit aside I think it worked while it was on there.

            BBK cold air

            Pretty easy to install and I’m no mechanic. Just need to jack up the front end and move the splash guard in the wheel well to get the air filter in there. Even easier if you take the wheel off. Looks great. And good quality. You can fell the increase in throttle and power. And sounds good.

            Love the BBK Cold Air Intake

            I recently installed my new BBK cold air intake in my 2000 Mustang GT convertible, and I couldn't be happier. The acceleration is better, and so is the sound. For some, installation is a cake walk, but since I am not very mechanically inclined, and my purchase came with no instructions in it at all, I had to YouTube on how to install the cold air intake. Plus, the filter was a bit of a pain to get in to the fender area, but after working with it a while, I finally got it in. Overall, it was worth the frustration and 3 hours to me and my boy, who helped me put some pieces together.

            Another great BBK product

            Installed it after work in about 2 hours with mostly guess work. You only need maybe a ratchet extension and a swivel for one or two screws. Pretty straight forward even though you might need some trial and error since most install videos are pretty vague. Use lube to get the PCV hose on, use a high powered flash light and put the front on jack stands and take off the passenger wheel to get up into the well. Air cone wasnt as hard to install as everyone suggested, just had to feel around in there. Took it for a test drive and I was more than impressed, I immediately noticed a huge throttle response and along with a nice induction noise when the throttle opens up. I took it for a 15 minute drive and warmed up the engine, when I got back I touched the intake tube near the throttle body and it was very cold to the touch.

            BBK Cold air intake

            Everything was pretty straight forward except the only hard part is getting the filter in such a small area if you don’t have a lift but is achievable with a regular jack and jack stands just takes some wiggling.
