Maximum Airflow. A C&L Performance Short Ram Air Intake kit will replace your GT's restrictive stock MAF, air box, and paper filter element with a high flow filter assembly to maximize airflow for a noticeable increase in horsepower, torque and performance.

Pre-calibrate 80mm MAF Housing. This C&L Performance ram air intake kit includes a brand new cast aluminum 80mm MAF housing that is already calibrated for use with the stock 19lb fuel injectors, MAF sensor not included.

No Tune Required. Unlike other Mass Air Meter Housing on the market, the C&L MAF does not require a computer re-tune when installed with the included calibration tube. The engineers at C&L really did their homework to improve your pony's power using the stock tune.

Made in the USA. Proudly made in the USA from the highest quality materials available, this C&L Performance Ram Air Intake has been extensively flow bench tested and engineered to out perform the competition.

Rechargeable High Flow Filter. Included with your C&L Short Ram Air Kit is a high-flow, reusable, rechargeable filter. That means no more spending money on OEM paper filters that waste money and horsepower. Just clean your C&L filter, re-oil it, and put it back on to save money and enjoy better performance in one shot.

Easy Installation. C&L Performance Ram Air Intake kits are designed to install with just basic hand tools. No extra modifications or special tools are required for an easy 1 hour installation.

Application. This C&L Performance Short Ram Air Intake System is specifically designed for use on 1996 to 2001 GT and Bullitt Mustangs equipped with the SOHC 2-valve 4.6L Modular V8 engine.

      2 Top Rated Questions

      Will this air intake work better with stock 19lb fuel injectors? Or 24lb?

      • The C&L Short Ram Air Intake with 80mm MAF will have a pre-installed calibration tube specific for 19lb/hr injectors, and should not be used with any other flow rate of injectors without a custom tune accounting for the new larger injectors. Most basic bolt on cars will see no benefit from larger injectors, unless they are very highly modified.

      What is the estimated gain in WHP and TQ with this on a stock 99 GT?

      • Unfortunately we are unable to determine the WHP and TQ gains as it will depend on if the vehicle has a tune or not, and what supporting mods the vehicle has as well.

          C L Short Ram

          Well, loved the look! But would not run right with the 80mm MAF. Video said you didn't need anything but too hook it up, don't need to be tuned?? Well ran bad and you could smell gas! Had to put back ON the old CFM. I guess if I want it to run right I'll need to get a tuner!

          Not able to enjoy the benefits...yet

          Now that I have installed this in addition to the CDC Shaker, I am throwing codes for fuel too rich. The product is advertised as no tune needed, but I will have to spend 100s of dollars on a tune to get my fuel injectors to the point that they are not flooding my engine with fuel thinking the engine is receiving too much air or not enough fuel. Not something I was planning on doing for a while, but my MPGs are terrible now!!!!

          Great item, but issues.

          Got this for my 2001 Bullitt. It already has the C & L piece from mass air to TB, so I figured this would compliment it well. It does, and I like the looks of the whole setup now (see pics), but it was a pain to get the filter on the mass air housing. It's just too long. Had to remove the headlight & wiggle some wiring around to squeeze it in. Also, It was missing a few things that said were "in the box", but didn't keep from getting it installed. I'll give it 4 out of 5 stars total. Just follow Axl Rose's words and "have a little patience, yeah, yeah"!!!
