Review & Install Video

Maximum Airflow. A C&L Performance "Street" Cold Air Intake kit will completely replace your GT 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.

Pre-calibrate 83mm MAF Housing. This C&L Performance cold air intake kit includes a brand new cast aluminum 83mm 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 when installed with the included "no tune option" calibration insert tube. If the calibration insert tube is not installed a new tune will be required for operation.  In that case AmericanMuscle recommends a custom Bama tune with a Mustang Handheld Tuner to reprogram the vehicles computer (ECU) for operation.

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. Carb Certification is for models with a production date of 5/2005 or later.

Application. This C&L Performance "Street" Cold Air Intake System is specifically designed for use on 2005 to 2009 GT Mustangs equipped with the SOHC 3-valve 4.6L modular V8 engine.

      Where can I buy a replacement boot, the one from the throttle body to this cai. Or both if I had to

      • Unfortunately, we do not have that part separately. You may be able to source that with C&L directly. We apologize for the inconvenience.

      How much horsepower gain can i expect on a stock mustang gt with no tune added?

      • Gains can vary based on driving habits, location, and a number of other factors.

      Carb EO# D-640 says that this Cold Air Intake is legal for Mustangs up to 2006 only. No later year is mentioned in the certificate. What cold air intake is smog legal for a 2007 Mustang 4.6L GT in California?

      • Correct, this Carb certification is only for 05 and 06 Mustangs. You would need to find a cold air intake that offers a CARB certification without that limitation offered with the certification.

      Hi, I have the C L intake with the 83mm MAF already but have it paired up with the Diablo i2 preloaded. Not feeling much, should up pair up with another tuner and remove the insert? What’s the best tuner for that intake? Thx

      • A custom tune option would get you more gains when paired with the cold air intake. I would suggest Bama, the included free tunes for life with the purchase of their tunes is a huge value.

          Great intake

          This cold-air intake gave my Mustang the boost I was looking for and it makes the roar of the exhaust sound extra aggressive. Install was easy and took less than an hour, even for a novice like me. Great part.

          will I haven't had the opportunity yo check the performance gain I was a little disappointment with the install due to the black cover could only be secured with one bolt I spoke with support and they told me to see if it works I send them photos I understood what I was talking about.I checked with a lot go mustang forums I they didn't have much of a solution for me.

          Looks good!

          We had to buy this model because of the emission laws in California and it came with the CARB sticker. It took about an hour from start to finish. Only thing that was missing were the zip ties but no biggie, who doesn't have zip ties in the house. It really looks good and you can feel some extra power. At some point I will buy a tune and then remove that insert, then get the full 27-30 hp gain.

          Not a bad mod to start with!

          Getting back into the mustang thing for some relaxation. So I wanted to start back with an easy mod that would show some difference. The CandL Cold intake w/83mm MAF was a perfect start. Took 45 minutes from start to finish and brought a decent growl to the stang. It looks good, easy fit and better response. Okay next mod is waiting.........

          Don’t need a tune, then when you’re ready you can get one and keep it. Easy to install, and gave my stock GT a nice little growl until I get more toys for it. If you want a intake but don’t want a time yet...come and get it!!

          Best bang for buck.

          I was looking for a cheaper solution to get more power and sound from my stand without a supercharger or paying someone to install something. This CandL made my car sound throatier and power gains were very noticeable with no tune needed. I highly recommend this item for any stand enthusiast looking to add a little "umph" to their car.

          Very Good Value

          2008 GT: This CAI fit well, looks good, better throttle performance and love the sound during acceleration. I cannot speak to better fuel economy as I cannot lay off the gas pedal.

          Love the way it sounds

          I love the way how easy it was to install and it only took me about 45 mins. I also love how it sounds then the stock air filter. It has a deep sound to it when you press on the gas, I can also fill the pull. Really couldn't tell about the gas mileage but then again who really cares about the saving gas money when your driving a V8. The other reason why I got the street intake was because I was going to tune it later but after I felt the pull it was giving I went ahead and purchase the bama tuner to see what kind results I would get but over all I love my air intake. Thanks AM.
