    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.

    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.

    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.

    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?

      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.

      Ehhhhhhh

      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.

      Now Breathing

      The CandL Racer has my S550 breathing way better than before with killer acceleration! It also seems to not burn as much gas. With the Bama 93 Octane Race Tune I’m always looking for playmates on the Highway to Burn! This is a must have setup...

      This intake is great, everything about it is worth the money. High quality, direct fit, great performance. Directions were very simple to fallow. Deff recommend to anyone who’s trying to get a little more pep out of the 5.0

      Big bang for the buck(s)

      I am so used to aftermarket fitment issues that the CandL Racer was a really pleasant surprise. Easy to install and perfect fit. Not only does it look good but there was a really impressive performance improvement. I cannot say what the horsepower and torque gains are without a dyno but I am seriously considering a neck brace before I stomp on the pedal again!!!! The Bama tune for the CandL (and my other modifications) was right on. One word of caution: Study the photos on the instruction sheet.- the cast CandL logo on the aluminum connector faces DOWN (plain side up). If you get this wrong, your MAF will be upside down and cause the car to stall on starting.

      Works as advertised

      This CAI allows for more air, but not cold air. It pulls mostly from the hot engine bay and can be 20-60 hotter than the outside air temperature, depending on your speed. There will also be one for sure, possibly two plugs (If you delete the sound tube) that you'll need to plan on having on hand before you run/tune a 2017 GT

      The fittings are finicky and came off because I didn’t tighten them down enough however, the nice little whine it has brings a smile to my face.

      Fitting

      While I was on a cruise the fitting on the MAF came lose and created a gap causing the car to run lean. I asked around and other people had had this problem as well. It fits pretty well but for a cold air intake the IAT's are a little high in my opinion, it made some power but it sucks in the hot air of the engine bay because it's not isolated.

      Awesome power...nearly perfect except for....

      Very easy install. You can really feel the added power after having a custom Bama tune. Day and night difference. One complaint...why on earth can you not explain better which way the MAF housing goes on? Even an arrow on the housing would help. If you install it wrong..car starts and stops immediately. Other than that would rec very much!
