    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.

    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

    Helpful (1)

    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

    • 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.

      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...

      Great Addition

      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!

      Easy install and great service

      I ordered the intake and tuner on a Thursday afternoon and received It the next day at noon! Can’t ask for better service than that! Called the AM tuner rep for Bama and they sent me my desired tunes (93 Octane per and racer) within 5 minutes after hanging up the phone! I can feel more response at the higher rpms, but can’t really hear the difference due to my Magnaflow Outlaw exhaust. I’m planning on doing a 0-60 and quarter mile runs to see what kind of performance improvements I’ve gained! Never had an issue with any of the products I’ve purchased from AM!

      Great product and support

      The CandL racer intake was super easy to install. It was my first time ever installing an intake on my car and I didn’t really have any issues with it. The only thing I did was flip at the MAF sensor around when I put it back together lol, but I called the support number and they were able to help me fix it in no time and were really helpful. I can really feel the gains with the Bama tune and it certainly doesn’t feel stock. I’m running the 93 octane tune.

      Great Product - But Know This Extra Info

      The installation of this CAI was super easy, took me about 45 minutes to install. Afterwards, everything fit like a glove. Tip: Leave your connections just slightly loose and easy to access before you put the upper intake cover back on. You may need to adjust them for better fit. Last, but not least, there's an extra vacuum port that was not available on my 2017 GT with 6 speed. Simply plug it off with a rubber hose cap and you're done.

      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.
