    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?

    lvIkTuhl

    • 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

    kevgjo

    • 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

    kevgjo

    • 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!!

    Eagle6

    • 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.

    Will this fit or will be okay on a 2004 Mustang V6?

    DonN

    • This BBK Cold Air Intake will not work, we would recommend item 56025 for the proper fitment for your V6. https://www.americanmuscle.com/bbk-cai-v6-46.html

    Is separate gasket required for mass air flow housing to new intake mounting flange?

      CAI Mod for 1997 Gt

      After reading dozens of reviews on different types of CAI choices for my 1997 4.6L Mustang GT I decided to go with the BBK brand. I was not disappointed. The install was not difficult and pretty self explanatory. If you have any problems the BBK website is available along with a hotline you can call for help. Exhaust sounds deeper from the moment you start it. Feels faster. I Would recommend this product for anyone looking for a CAI mod.

      Dropped the ball on this one, AM

      I 100 agree with "John's" review! I just had the CAI that I bought 2 yrs ago, taken off and this one put on, simply for the necessary sticker - due to CA smog requirements!! It wouldn't pass w/out it! The mechanic couldn't make it fit, unless he used a part from the older one....So $90 later new CAI $159 another smog test....cha-ching!!! $$$ I've never been unhappy with AM's parts or service, however...this is not designed correctly.

      Great upgrade

      I noticed a bit of pickup on the highway. I didn't receive the plug so did the hardware store thing. It is a bit tough by myself getting the filter in on the V8 but still managed. I tend to do things a little slower so when I saw one hour I figured twi for myself and was right. (Although if I did it in twi from start to cleanup most can do it in a hour)
