    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.

        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.

        If I go with Bama to tune my car with this intake will they already know by me notifying them of the intake or do I need to tell them it requires a tune

        • When you purchase a BAMA Tuner, they email you a tune form asking what modifications you have done to your vehicle. They will ask what cold air intake you have on your vehicle and you would fill that in with the C&L Racer Cold Air Intake and they will generate a tune that includes that modification. BAMA will know that this intake requires a tune to the vehicle to make sure it runs correctly.

        Will this work with the GT350 intake manifold and the GT350 throttle body?

        • The C&L Racer Cold Air Intake would work with the GT350 intake and throttle body yes.

        I have a question about Tuning. I have a Diablosport Trinity T1000 that I bought since it worked with my Charger R/T as well as my new 2016 GT. I was curious if I could use my T1000 to tune this or if it needs a different tuner.

        • Any tuner device will work with the C&L Racer Cold Air Intake. It all depends on the software that the tunes are written on. I suggest reaching out to the company that makes your tunes to confirm with them.

        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

        Okay this might be a noob question... I under stand what tune required means and understand you need it to get the hp gains advertised, but will it be okay to put this on then drive to the shop for a tune? Or maybe even have this on for a while then get a tune later? Or will it hurt the engine or effect anything driving it without a tune 2 answers

            BEWARE! This thing is junk

            The materials this thing is made out of are cheap junk. Not all of the clamps they send you even fit the tube. Had to use one that was on the stock intake. Also, after my wife and I spent three hours in a hot Arizona garage installing this, the car wouldn't even start. It just fizzled out every time I tried to start it. The directions are useless. Bad grammar and distorted pictures make the vague directions completely useless. American Muscles install video was a total sham as everything was already pre set up for him to go through his "install." Avoid this intake. Just buy the Ford Performance pack 2.

            Best bang for buck!

            I chose this unit due to the bigger MAF rain / heat cover and install video on AM showing the most gains. Make sure to tighten brackets with socket wrench instead of flat head to prevent slippage.

            This is a great item, it was a very fast way to see real gains quick. I added a tune with this and could really fill the extra power. The instal time was about 45 mins. This was money well spent.

            Clamps kept getting loose and the intake would come off. I would refit it tighten it up and same thing. It’s been good now but definatly should come with some kind of support.

            I like it.

            I have this with a vmp tune and I must say it really gives your mustang more power. I notice it in all gears but I notice it even more when I'm in 6 gear. To me 6 gear on stock 15 gt is kind of wimpy but not no more. This cold air intake is awesome

            Screenshot this

            Awesome intake, easy to install, at the end though there is an extra “spout” that needs a plug, i just electric taped it for now, and the metal part where you insert your mass airflow sensor needs to be tightened to the air filter a certain way, people said “words face down” which actually doesn’t mean anything, you need it turned down but also flipped the correct way, also the cover doesn’t really fit well so i didn’t even attempt to screw it on.
