    Power And Performance. Improve the power and performance of your coyote powered 2018 GT Mustang by installing a C&L Performance "Racer" Cold Air Intake Kit. This Cold Air Intake replaces the restrictive stock air box and paper filter element found on the GT with a roto-molded air intake tube and a free flowing air filter assembly. This Racer Intake was engineered to maximize airflow for a noticeable increase in horsepower, torque and overall performance.

    Rechargeable High Flow Filter. Included with your C&L Cold Air Kit is a high-flow air filter that is engineered to effectively filter out minuscule power robbing particulates while maintaining excellent air flow. Seeing that this filter is rechargeable you will no longer need to spend money on OEM paper filters that restrict power. Just clean your C&L filter, re-oil, and reinstall to save yourself time and money while enjoying increased performance.

    Calibration Required. Installation of this C&L Racer Cold Air Intake will require the use of a Handheld Tuner to reprogram the vehicles computer (ECU) for operation. By reprogramming your Mustangs ECU you will be able to realize the full power potential that this Cold Air Intake has to offer.

    Straight Forward Installation. Designed to be a direct fit replacement for the factory intake this C&L Racer Cold Air Intake installs with just basic hand tools. No extra modifications or special tools are required for an easy 1 hour installation. All necessary parts and instructions are included.

    Not CARB Certified. This C&L Racer Cold Air Intake is not CARB certified at this time, therefore it is not legal for use in California or other states adopting California emission standards. Not legal for use on pollution controlled motor vehicles; intended for off road use only.

    Is this one specifically made for 2018 mustangs or can I use it in a 2017 mustang as well??

    • This intake will only work with a 2018 Mustang GT. For the 15-17 Mustang GT models, we do offer that intake as well which can be found here: https://www.americanmuscle.com/cnl-cai-2015gt.html.

    Does it come with the cover seen in the 2017 and earlier models?

    • This intake will not come with a cover.

    Helpful (0)

    I noticed 2017 and earlier intakes on the C L Racer have a plastic cover to prevent water from coming into the hood vent and getting the filter wet. Won't this filter get wet without the plastic protective cover? I wonder why they didn't include this cover on the 2018 model?

    • We have not received any reports of water intrusion with the C&L Racer Cold Air Intake on 2018 models.

      Nice Intake!

      Overall, the included instructions make it easy to install. Not much explanation about assembling the intake with the couplers; though not hard to figure out. Reinstalling the PCV connector took some force as rotating the connector didn't seem to help. Be careful not to break the plastic ends on the connector. I would recommend checking the tightness of the screws on the clamps holding the intake tube, as I read from another review that they tend to loosen a little. I'm not sure if that will happen, so I'll keep checking the screw tightness. I tuned my car with a 93 Octane Performance Tune and I felt a noticeable difference when I drove it for the first time. More instant power response on the gas pedal - that's how a Mustang is supposed to drive!

      Well Dam!

      Installed on my 2017 GT PP bout six months ago and, oh my God I was caught off guard with the performance, to the point I had to scale back a bit on the Cloud Setting w/the Bama RevX tuner...after all said and done, I'm like "well dam" I got a car now brother...Only concern is my hardware that holds the tubing in place on the coupling screws needs to be tightened ever so often...not cool will applying loctite!
