Maximum Airflow. A C&L Performance "Racer" Cold Air Intake kit will completely replace your Coyote GT Mustang's restrictive stock air box and paper filter element with a high flow filter assembly to maximize airflow for a noticeable increase in horsepower, torque and overall performance. With a custom tune you will see increases of 48 HP and 43 ft/lb of Torque at the rear wheels.

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.

Required Upgrade. Installation of this C&L Racer Cold Air Intake will require a custom Bama tune with the use of a Mustang Handheld Tuner to reprogram the vehicles computer (ECU) for operation.

Application. This C&L Performance "Racer" Cold Air Intake System is specifically designed for use on 2015-2017 GT Mustangs equipped with the DOHC 4-valve 5.0L Coyote V8 engine. Custom tuning is required for operation.

On the Bama tune questionnaire, they ask if this CAI has an insert or no insert...can you confirm?

  • Hey Daniel, the insert they are referring to is the ventri-tube and this does not come with one

Hey I just got this and it has an extra connector for a hose I do not have I was told it was ok to run it not being plugged? I think the problem is only 2017 Mustang GT's

  • Any unused ports on the C&L Racer Cold Air Intake should be capped or plugged to prevent unmetered air from entering the engine, which could cause a lean condition.

I have a Roush Cai no insert, I want to purchase this, will I see a difference if I switched them out?

  • You may not notice a very huge performance gain by installing this C&L RACER COLD AIR INTAKE but it does have bigger gains than the ROUSH COLD AIR INTAKE by 20hp 15tq.

    Really nice CAI

    I have tried Air Raid, Steeda, and JLT, before trying the CandL. The CandL took about a half an hour to install and seems to work great. I have it paired with the Voodoo manifold, LT headers, h-pipe, axle back exhaust, and a Lund Tune. My car is such a beast now, with nothing, but bolt on mods. I would definitely recommend for your 5.0!

    Cheaply made, be warned

    I absolutely hate this intake, it feels so cheaply made, the answered question asked if it would fit a gt 350 TB and technically it will but you will need more parts. The end tapers off in size so it's useless with the gt 350 tb/im and the couplers will come loose while driving. I really wish I would have bought an air raid instead of spending good money on this intake. Performance seems nice but it could also just be the tune. Included screws stripped immediately. Head of the screw broke off of one of them as soon as it tightened down.

    WOW, SPIN THE WHEELS OFF DIFFERENCE!!!

    I just finished the install of my new CandL Racer Cold Air Intake and programed with the Bama Performance Tune with the 93 Race Tune (thanks Shawn for sending me the perfect tune). I can say without a doubt this intake has made a huge bump in power to the wheels on my GT. I had already purchased the Bama Tuner and had installed the 93 race tune with a stock intake with some noticeable difference. So I hesitated in getting the after market cold air intake because some had said that the power difference may only be because of the tune. IT IS NOT, this intake makes a huge difference.

    I bought and installed the CandL Racer along with a Bama tuner on my 2016 Mustang GT S550. It was easy to install and took less than an hour in total. The performance after modification is noticeable and impressive. I would do it again in a heartbeat.

    Good product

    I got this cai with a Lund tune I have just a cat back exhaust and this and my car made 400 hp and 387lb to the wheels .. I have to give it to the custom Lund tune that really made the gains. But it deff looks better then that giant box from factory plus I got the CandL on sale which made it way more affordable than the other ones out there! So thank you AM ur the best

    Poor connections result in air leaks

    After weeks of trying to hunt down an air leak causing my fuel trim to be high (with BAMA's help) I finally found it. It was this intake. The Vacuum fittings are poor quality and the connection to the throttle was deformed. My fuel trim was 11 higher than normal. I went back to my stock intake and the air leak was gone. I will be returning this and going with something of higher quality. http://imgur.com/a/MNI1i

    Peformance Gains are nice!

    Installed this on my 2017 Mustang GT. The fit was a little odd compared to my other intakes on prior mustangs. I had to angle the filter to get it to fit. A lot less room to work with compared to my other mustangs. Other than that, this thing is amazing for performance with a tune. BAMA stepped it up with their tunes, they are on point.

    Good Intake, but a bit Pricey

    I bought the CandL Racer CAI from American Muscle and had a shop install it along with a custom dyno tune. Unfortunately I installed it the same time I got the tune so I couldn't tell you if the intake really makes a huge difference by itself but it's certainly more powerful than before and I'm sure the intake is helping with that. Only reason I gave it 4 stars was because I think its a bit overpriced compared to other comparable intakes.

    I bought this intake purely for the power gains. Lemme tell ya, Kooks Longtubes with some corsa xtremes and a Lund Racing tune makes this thing a whole other beast. Money well spent. Super easy to install as well.
