      Description

      Needed for BBK CAI Install. Do you want to add a BBK Cold Air Intake to your 1986-1988 5.0 Mustang, but don't have the stock MAF used on later 5.0 mustangs for the kit to be installed correctly? Well AmericanMuscle now has the BBK 5.0L Speed Density CAI Adapter Kit for the 1986-1988 Ford Mustangs. This Speed Density CAI Adapter Kit from BBK will fill the space of the missing mass air meter allowing for the proper installation of the BBK Cold Air Intake (part# 1557) and BBK Ram Air Intake (part# 1556) on a the 1986-1988 5.0L Mustang.

      Chrome Finish. Even though this is a required part for the 1986-1988 mustangs there is no reason why it can't look good too. So BBK finished this Speed Density Adapter in a bright chrome finish to match their 86-93 Cold Air Intake for a seamless look under the hood of your beast.

      Fitment. This BBK 5.0L Speed Density CAI Adapter Kit is designed to allow you to install the 1986-1993 5.0 V8 BBK Cold Air Intake and Ram Air Intake on to a 1986-1988 5.0 Mustang that does not have the factory MAF.

        Healthy breather

        Fits perfect on my 87 with the cold air intake. Definitely helps my car breath well, added an extra little rumble at an affordable price.

        air intake

        Was relatively easy to install however was not pleased that it did not come with any instructions. Negligible power gains. Looks great.

        3 1987 LX - 87FOX

        Would be better in black plastic

        When I opened the package I felt like I spent too much money. The inside of the pipe had slight surface rust from water getting in the package from factory as the box wasnt wet. The bracket included is pretty useless too.

        BBK speed density adapter

        I ordered the BBK speed density adapter along with their cold air system for my 93 Mustang Fox body using the 5.080 liter out of a Lincoln Mark 7 with the computer I found it challenging to get everything in tune with this car after installing vertical door system along with the BBK speed density adapter this car really woke up nicely Parts came very quickly no damage boxes good quality and appearance and went together very nice I would recommend it for anybody running a speed density system I'll give it 5 stars and a big thumbs up
