Maximum Airflow. A C&L Performance Cold Air Intake kit will completely replace your Mach 1 Mustang's restrictive factory air box and paper filter element with a high flow filter assembly to maximize airflow for a noticeable increase in horsepower, torque and performance.

Keeps Shaker System Functional. Unlike other Mach 1 cold air intake kits on the market, this C&L Performance Intake not only improves the performance of your Mach 1, but it also allows you to keep your factory shaker system setup fully functional.

Pre-calibrate 82mm MAF Housing. This C&L Performance cold air intake kit includes a brand new cast aluminum 82mm MAF housing that is already calibrated for use with the factory fuel injectors, MAF sensor not included.

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

No Tune Required. Unlike other Cold Air Intakes on the market, the C&L CAI does not require a computer re-tune. The engineers at C&L really did their homework to improve your pony's power using the factory tune.

Rechargeable High Flow Filter. Included with your C&L Cold 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 Cold 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.

CARB Certified. Best of all, this Mustang C&L Cold Air Intake Kit is 50-state smog legal under Carb EO# D-640.

Application. This C&L Performance Cold Air Intake System is specifically designed for use on 2003 to 2004 Mach 1 Mustangs equipped with the DOHC 4-valve 4.6L modular V8 engine.

I have a steeda 3 point strut tower brace will this cold air intake fit with this style brace

PaulB

  • The Steeda 3 Point Strut Tower brace will work with the OEM intake as well as most aftermarket cold air intakes, so there shouldn't be any fitment issues when used with the C&L Cold Air Intake w/ 82mm MAF.

Di I need to re-tune with this addition ? I have a bama tuner and wanted to know If I should re tune even though it says I don't need to.

in4sir3

  • I'd highly recommend you request new tune files to include the new C&L Cold Air Intake! Even when a product does not require a tune to function properly, you'll still see and feel an increase in performance when your upgrades have a corresponding tune! Not to mention if you are a Bama member, the tunes are free! That's a win-win situation!

    C&L Mach 1 intake

    For any Mach 1 owners who have previously installed an intake manifold spacer as I have, this kit will fit fine. My half-inch spacer was no issue. The kit provides improved power throught the tach with elimination of that infamous hump at 4000 rpm's. Installation is straightforward for anyone with basic mechanical ability. After installation, I noticed pinging at the bottom of the tach after each shift. Before calling C&L about it, I decided to get my ducks in a row. I readjusted and firmly tightened all hose clamps, then removed the 7 year old MAF sensor. I swished just the sensor elements in a weak Dove cleaning solution, then rinsed with distilled water, then applied a thin coat of gun grease to the rubber sealing gasket before replacing the sensor in the aluminum housing. The result: pinging gone, even with deliberate challenges to get a ping. No need to call C&L now except to tell them they make a great product.

    Fits with Steeda Strut Brace

    I was going to buy the JLT RAI so I could keep the shaker hood in tact (working) and then I read that it would not work with most strut braces (which I was also buying). This CAI/RAI looks great, fit like a glove (can't stress this enough) and did not at all interfere with my steeda strut brace. Also comes with a much bigger maf housing.

    Perfect!!!

    Easy to install with no experience needed! Looks great!! I can feel the difference in airflow. She breathes a lot better now! I can feel a subtle improvement in horsepower and it added a little more rumble to the exhaust as well as a cool turbo like whistle while accelerating between 3,000-4,000 Rpm's. Very faint but cool. I flipped the rubber pieces around and used the orange side to better match the color of my car.

    C L Performance cold air kit

    The fit and finish is as good as OEM rubber convoluted intake tube. No, its way better. No installation issues what so ever. Even with a 3/4" intake spacer and Steeda strut tower bar. NO fitment issues. The entire installation took less than 30 minutes. 1 large flat head screwdriver or 5/16" or 8mm socket or nut driver for the clamps. A security type torx t-20 for the mass air sensor. And an 8mm wrench or socket for the air filter guard. Install the air filter to mass air and rubber hose on other side of mass air. Put the assembly in behind head light. Then install the upper tube on throttle body. Connect the 2 pieces together and snug everything up making sure all clamps face the same direction. Plug in mass air and your done Its just that easy. It looks way better than any other cold air out there. And it works. This is what Ford should have used as an OEM intake tube. However there is no where for the mass air screen.

    Finally for the Mach 1

    Glad they offered a kit for the Mach 1 which is a gain and looks good. Have been jealous of the GT's with their chrome intakes. While its not chrome, its an eye catcher for sure. Changed from a JLT gen 1 to this. Bout the same in gain from stock. The Shaker to filter connection is a plus.

    Fit and Finish is Excellent

    The fit of this product is excellent well made and works well with my strut bar. The hole for the shake assembly is really tight and took a bit of muscle to press it all the way in. Not sure about power gains but has to be better then stock with a bigger MAF housing and no noise reducing pockets

    C&L intake

    This is the first mod I've done to my '03 Mach 1. Having no prior mechanical experience, I found the installation to be pretty straight-forward when following the instructions on this website. It took me a little over an hour to install (definitely less time for someone with prior knowledge). I definitely noticed an improvement under harder and full throttle acceleration especially above 3500rpms. I could actually hear a difference as well. Great product.

    adds to overall under the hood appearance, called C&L to ask if I could turn silicone sleeve inside out to use the red side, they were very prompt in a return call and the4 red goes with the car color, thanks American Muscle for another great product.

    Looks great, Sounds great

    This was a very easy install, it came with detailed instructions and even the screwdriver bit you need to remove the MAF sensor from the stock housing. the instructions say it takes 20 minutes, but it took me 40 because I was being cautious. The product feels rugged and solid, a good feeling of quality. the tube fits perfectly, you might have to rotate the clamps on the air filter to get the heat shield thing to fit correctly. that may have been the only difficulty I ran into, it took me a little while to figure out that that's why the shield wasn't going forward enough to bolt it in. They literally give you everything you need to install it aside from a screwdriver. As far as performance gain I haven't really gotten a chance to test it, had to put the car up for winter soon after the install, but there can't be any negative to giving your engine more air to breath. it has that nice 'wooosh' sound when you step on the throttle. It also looks great in the engine bay.

    Makes a big difference

    '03 mach 1 mustang. Installation was about 20 min. Definitely pulls stronger, but I don't have before & after 1/4 mile times. The car will now easily break the tires free without working the clutch in 2nd. Now requires more skill to launch & drive w intent to win through 1st & 2nd on stock tires (stock mach would catch rubber, hop a bit & regrip w full throttle power shifts from 1st-2nd, now it won't regrip, will just spin; 1st gear is a whole new launch). Engine runs smoother too. Wish I had done this years ago. For the price & the easy install, this is absolutely worth it.

    Good Review - CNL Air Intake

    Noticed a good torque improvement right away. I haven't run it in the quarter but it took about 2 tenths of my average 8th mile time. Install was really easy, looks good. You get what you pay for with this one its more then the others but its worth it to keep the ram air functional.
