    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

    CHRISTOPHERD

    • 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 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.

    RobertR

    • 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?

    DanielP

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

    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

    Anyhony

    • 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.

    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

    CameronR

    • Don't drive it to the shop. I believe this intake removes the actual airflow sensor for the ECU so the engine won't know how much air it is getting (much more than stock) so your fuel/air ratio is going to be wack, possibly causing firing issues in your pistons.

    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.

      C L Racer CAI - Gets The Job Done

      I wanted to like this Intake more that I do. The install was super easy (as long as the MAF housing is flipped the correct way). I have the 2018 Mustang GT Intake Manifold on the car and the fitment of the CAI is perfect. No issues of it hitting the hood or getting in the way like the HPS I had before. The clamps the intake come with are cheap and don’t tighten well. Everything seems to be a bit wobbly when it’s on the car. The performance is there although I can’t tell a difference between this one that requires a tune and my other one that didn’t.

      C L CAI install

      This is my second purchase of CandL Intake. The product is solid, however the instructions are poorly written. I have installed my original CAI at least 20 times on my 2006 Mustang GT. This install did not detail the proper direction of the MAF or the extra port for sound tube on a 2017. It took a lot longer than it should if it had good directions.

      Nice upgrade

      Haven’t dyno’d The car after installing the CAI but I can feel the difference. Does require a tune so maybe that helped out as well. Install took all of about 20 minutes so can’t complain there at all.

      Fits well think it took about a half hour to install with a spacer... after tune I can feel better throttle response....on the 2017 model GT you will have to plug one of the vac line outlets there isn't a hose to go in that one...

      Air temperature

      Product was great , just installed and got a tune for it as well , but my intake temperature is about twice as much as the outside temperature , idling at about 130-40, seems way too hot . Just wondering if anyone has experienced this problem before . Thanks

      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 .

      Incredible sound! Great performance!

      This intake is made with good quality materials and is fantastic for the price. The install was simple and straight forward. I paired this intake with a 85mm BBK throttle body and a custom tune and now my Mustang has really come to life!!! NOTE FOR 2017 MUSTANG GT OWNERS: This intake fit my 2017 GT with no problems, however, you will need to plug the top right hose port of the intake as my stock intake only has two lines which is different from 2015/2016 mustang GT which have all three lines.
