      Review & Installation Video

      Hey, Mike Wilson here from, today we’re going to show you the C&L cold air intake kit for the 2005-2009 Mustang V6 and what you can expect with it when you combine it with a 93 octane bama race tune. But before we do that, we’re going to make a stock dyno run on the car so we can see what our baseline horse power and torque numbers are. Stock, our 2005 V6 automatic put down 172 horse power and 196 ft/lbs of torque. By removing the factory restrictive airbox and replacing with a high flow reusable air filter, and a cast aluminium intake tube, the C&L cold air intake kit will increase horse power, torque, acceleration, and give you a nice throaty engine sound. And the shiny ceramic appearance will enhance the under hood appearance of your Mustang. Now we’re going to install this cold air intake, which should take less than an hour, and can be done with simple hand tools you have at home. Along with the cold air intake, we also installed one of our 94 octane bama race tunes. A custom tune from bama performance adjusts engine parameters to maximize performance through optimized air/fuel ratio, spark advance, enhanced throttle response, and for automatics, increased shift firmness and adjustable shift points. Now let’s make another dyno run, and see what kind of horse power and torque numbers we get. We installed the C&L cold air intake kit along with a bama performance tune, and the car put down 191 horse power, and 222 ft/lbs of torque, while gaining as much as 26 horse power, and 34 ft/lbs of torque throughout the curve. We installed the C&L cold air intake kit along with a bama performance tune using simple hand tools in under an hour’s time, and picked up 26 horse power, and 34 ft/lbs of torque.

        Must have

        This intake and throttle body spacer and a tune added way more boost than I thought it would. Most noticeable difference is that it shifts quicker and doesn't need to drop into 3rd to get up the hills where I live anymore! The car just wants to GO now. I can't mash the gas pedal anymore because now you'll end up sideways. The difference is huge. Fuel economy is also better driving conservatively. I really love the response from pedal now it gets right down to business with the shifts. ALSO this intake makes a whistle sound when you hit the gas. Like a pshhh it's loud.. The instal was easy just slipped on a few pipe clams and bolts. Looks awesome too its a thicc intake. Im running a 92 octane tune with this intake.

        Fresh Air

        I put this product on my V-6 Mustang along with a few other go fast goodies. Stock set up, couldn't redline the car if I tried. Now I have to be careful, easily redline's and there must be some kind of safety in the system, because I have had the motor shut down a couple of times for not watching the tachometer.

        Great Addition

        Cold Air Induction is a must for perfomance hunters; you can't go wrong with CandL CAI rig. Love that whistle sound when you hit the gas!

        The install could not be easier! Unreal throttle response improvement and HP gains, especially when combined with a Bama tune.

        Love the CAI!

        I got this in the mail today and I absolutely love it! My BAMA tuner comes tomorrow, so right now it isn't quite running right. But after the SUPER easy install, I was able to start it and get a couple of good revvs and MAN it sounds good! And even before the tune, it has better throttle response! I can't wait to get the tune done so I can get it running right and get those extra ponies workin for me. Definitely get the combo pack with the CAI and the BAMA tuner and save yourself some money. Great first performance mod. Highly recommended!
