        will this increase the sound of my mustang? in a positive way

        • You may experience a whistling sound which is caused by the increased airflow.

        Hey I'm trying to install one of these on my 02 mustang, but I didn't receive a bracket to support it in order to receive maximum performance of the intake. Do you have something that you sell or recommend to support it.

        • Unfortunately, we do not carry a bracket specific for supporting this intake, however, it may be possible to source something locally or through online resources.

        i know it says 01-04, but will this product fit on a 2000 v6 automatic? the engine is still stock.

        • The C&L Cold Air Intake w/ 73mm MAF will not fit a 2000 V6.

        Hi. I currently have the BBK Cold Air Intake on my 03 V6 mustang. I am not a fan of the "through the fender" design and was thinking of swapping out just the "maf foward" section as I have a nitrous setup that is intergrated with the cold air intake tubing just before the throttle body. Can this unit work with the BBK cold air intake tubing?

        • Hello, this CAI is designed to work with the factory air intake tubing that came on your mustang, so we cannot guarantee fitment without some modification.

        is this filter a straight forward install or is this one of the filters where you have to run it through the fender well?

        • It is a straight through. It mounts directly to the stock intake hose.

            C L cold air intake

            So far I love the CandL cold air intake and MAF. I feel the slight power gain on quick accelerations and launches.

            Giant Filter

            Cool product, nice pairing with a good aftermarket exhaust. Decent performance gains and tough sound

            Noticeable Power Increase

            Motor seems to be running smoother and stronger. Not a huge difference but noticeable. I don't think the filter will move around much at all, like others have complained about. Wouldn't be hard to fabricate a mounting bracket, but not needed. Got the Bama street tune and although not impressed with the power increase, it does run much smoother. Overall happy with the improvement.

            CAI 04 MUSTANG V6

            Awesome cold air set up that was super quick to install, and the boost in performance for my v6 was immediate. Acceleration and MPG both affected in a positive way. I'm also running with a dual conversion cat back system and combining this intake with my current set up was perfect. The kit includes conical reusable air filter, wider mass air flow tube, and sturdy plastic heat shield, even better it uses your mustangs stock intake tube which made the install even easier.

            Easy install, unsure on power

            So I had an actual cold air intake installed that went into the fender well then I installed this more Ram Air style intake but it's covered and sits right by where the cold air intake sat so I figured it would be just as much power or maybe even more so far I really can't tell too much of a difference from the stock one maybe just a little bit but then it kind of falls off overall I'm happy with it for $100 new mass air flow was kind of cool

            Cannot install properly without a mounting bracket

            The install was straight forward until the mounting of the filter. The collar is heavy metal that fits into the stock intake. Without a mounting bracket to fit the pre drilled holes. The filter is supported by the plastic shield. This is not good as the filter lays on the shield, will bounce around and will not gain maximum performance from the filter. I currently have the unit supported by #10 solid electrical wire (looks bad but works). I'm hoping that I can either find a mounting bracket (1st) or I will return the product.

            Good product with some flaws

            When installing the product, it is very straight foward. The maf housing is made of very durable metal with pre-drilled holes for a bracket (did not recieve any type of bracket though which was dissapointing), and when installing the sensor in the housing it was a tight fit. Everything lined up perfectly. The heat sheild seemed a little flimsy and useless. I ended up not using it. I do wish the product would have came with a pre-fabricated bracket and screw for the already pre-drilled holes in the maf housing. I ended up having to build my own bracket and had to run to the hardware store to pick up screws which would fit the housing. All in all it is a good product. When idling the car runs smoother, and I have noticed when accelerating the car goes through the rpm's smoother as well.
