    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

    Dunnigan66

    • 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?

    Donald92

    • 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.

    Will I be able to tune this intake with the lund racing nguage tuner?

    • We would recommend consulting with Lund Racing to see if they have a tune that supports C&L Racer Cold Air Intake.

    What do the inlet air temps look like using this intake? Also I am curious what the result would be on the dyno with the same tune but the hood closed. I would think the inlet air temp would be much higher with the hood closed and I am curious what kind of hp loss might be observed as a result, if any.

    RyanM

    • The inlet air temps with this C&L Racer Cold Air Intake will ultimately vary on ambient temperature, additional modifications, and whether the vehicle has been under a load or if it has been sitting in traffic. The heat shield in the kit will help deflect some heat from the motor. Additionally, most tuning devices allow the IAT to be monitored, so you may see the exact air temps your application is receiving.

      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!

      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.

      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.

      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.

      Big improvement

      I bought my Stang and it already had a Bama tuner so it was a huge difference on power and how the car ran "in a good way". I didn't realize how much my car was starving for air with the Bama race tune till I installed CandL cold air. I still don't get why cold air intakes are so expensive thought. There's not much to them . Air filter, piece of aluminum and a filter .
