        will this bolt up to the stack racing (SR) cold air intake tube? i have the stack racing cold air intake kit, will this MAFs bolt pattern fit the tube connecting to the throttle body?

        • Yes this C L CAI w/ 73MM Maf will bolt up to your SR Performance intake tube. On the C L Maf, it has the black rubber connector on the end of the Maf, you will need to remove this, and use your SR Performance supplied coupler to attach to the new Maf. I have the same exact setup for my 97 V6 daily driver.

        Does this filter element fit in the fender well, or engine compartment? Also, is there a box or protector to keep it cool?

        • This filter would be in the engine compartment rather than in the fender well. This intake will include a heat shield to keep it cool.

        Could you post on the cleaning procedure. Had a K N years ago and I'm sure it's similar, but would just like a refresher of the do's/don'ts to make sure it's done right. I know you don't use solvents or high air pressure, but some filters use proprietary components that have a specific cleaning procedure. I don't recall anything that came with the the CAI package on cleaning other than it was reusable. Thanks.

        • The C&L Cold Air Intake filter has a very simple cleaning produce. All you need is some soap with no solvents. Lightly rinse it off with water (do not use high pressure) and let it air dry. Make sure the filter is completely dry before re-oiling. Then you are able to re-install the filter.

        I lost the black donut that goes on the stock intake. Does anybody know where i can get a replacement or at least the size ?

        • The C&L Cold Air Intake includes a 73mm MAF housing. You will need an adapter that will fit on to this housing for a proper install.

        Is this cold air intake legal in California? I know some intakes will not pass smog with the CARB laws, just wondering if this will be legal here. 1 answer

            Pretty good product everything fit perfect. needed to reset computer (unplug battery about 10 min) because i was getting some stalling out of first gear. after that everything ran fine and it feels like more power in the 30 mph range. Looks like some madmax mod!

            Love the fresh air

            I was impressed by the size of the massive KandN air filter. Installation was easy and I really like the larger than stock MAF. My V6 whistles when I open it up. It feels like its getting the fresh air it needs. Once the air filter was installed it was quite snug in its new location. I first thought it would need an extra brace to hold it in place but it fit well and doesn't move at all. I like this product and would recommend it to anyone with a V6

            Install was pretty straight forward. Only issue was the security screws that were on the maf when I moved it to the new housing. I just hammered a bigger torques bit (a T20 I think) until I was able to move it myself. It did cause my PCV valve to go bad but I heard that's normal. Other than that I did notice a decent gain in power and it really helps out with my dual exhaust setup.

            C L intake

            The CandL intake with MAF is a great upgrade and hassle free of other intakes that have you use the fender well to house the filter. Removing the MAF sensor to new housing might be a problem with security bolt that has some clay on it from turning it but can be turned with pliers. Looks real nice from the SR intake system tubing. Plastic housing doesn't reach with out touching filter but doesn't matter, great item regardless.

            Intake/maf

            Great product. Helps my car idle smoother. Low end driving has a bit more power too it, but not a lot. I already had a bbk cold air intake before, so instead of using the factory tube I used the bank tube. The fact that I already had a cold air intake is the reason I haven't seen much as far as gains, but if your intake is stock, you will love this. The maf housing was the last of my intake mods. now on to exhaust!

            Better than expected, worth the price.

            I chose this kit simply because I preferred the finished look over the in fender unit. Less than an hour to install. the only difficulty, not the kits problem, was that Ford had placed epoxy over one of the MAF sensor mounting screw. Removed epoxy with a dental pick and had no other difficulty with install Tone is somewhat louder but I am really surprised by MPG gain. Mileage upped by about 20 over stock. I have not made any other mods to my Mustang so I feel this was a worthwhile investment. Will definitely recommend American Muscle to others..

            Impressed with this CAI

            Installed yesterday and am happy with results. not much louder at idle but a slight increase when accelerating. Throttle response is much improved. The one problem I did encounter was that Ford decided to place a bit of epoxy over one of the sensor's mounting screws so that the bit wouldn't fit. Solved problem with mini vice grips. And the rubber color was a very tight fit into the intake tube. Warmed tube with hair dryer, problem solved. The pony now breathes much better... .

            Beautiful!

            Beautiful setup. Easy install, even for a novice (once I realized there were extra instructions that didn't apply to my '98 V6). Adds more growl. Goes perfectly with my Pypes true dual exhaust (x-pipe & catback, turndown tips). Engine sounds & feels more balanced. Plus, no tune!! Definitely recommend.

            Bigger intake with a solid fit!

            Pros: Performance is noticeable. This kit gives you a bigger MAF and a huge filter. Install is easy. You are able to use the factory air tube which makes the install faster. Has a custom fit filter guard which bolts right into the existing j-nut that the factory box was fastened to. Looks very clean and SOLID, with no worries that the components will shake out of place. Overall, this kit is for me because I do not plan on tuning my pony. Cons: This kit does not give you something for the MAF to rest on. Although, there is no problem with moving around because the filter guard fits snug around the filter, there should have been something to keep the MAF from vibrating underneath.

            C&L provides More Air, More Power, Better Fuel/Air Mixture

            I had been looking at many other CAI systems, but they all used the existing "Mass Air Meter" and expected to get the best results, but I thought that didn't make sense. When I found the C&L CAI system with a new larger MAM, this made me smile. After reading ALL of their test trial reports, I ordered one for my 2000 Roush Stage 1 Mustang V6 Convertible. (wanted better performance & better gas mileage). It arrived quickly and I carefully inspected the size & machine quality of the MAM. Looked Bigger & REALLY clean! The large 9" air filter and necessary parts were all there for installation. I really like that this system used the factory Ford intake tubing to the throttle body (which I also upgraded from AM) Simple installation with everything fitting perfectly. Sounds great, runs better and now just waiting for the Chip to pull this all together. Do not hesitate to upgrade all the way (not just filter) with the C&L System. I'm glad I found it.

            Great upgrade

            Have used many versions of cold air intakes and love this one best since the filter is easy to access, and there's no measurable difference in the air temp between this one and in the fenderwell. What stands out about this mod is that you get a 700cfm MAF! Without replacing this, the other CAI's are trying to breathe through a restrictive 560cfm MAF. C&L is a very respectable company that has data and testing to back up it's claims. I do have headers that came stock and I have a 2.5" dual catback Flowmaster American Thunder exhaust, so I have plenty of airflow on the back end, and now I have plenty on the front end. This mod is well worth the money as I could easily feel the extra horses as soon as I backed out of the driveway!

            Better than fenderwell intakes

            I used to have a different aftermarket intake that the air filter cone is installed in the fenderwell. Having such a big-ass filter in the fenderwell, it kept on falling off after a while from all the shakes I had to maintain my car often. With this C&L intake, removing the filter for cleaning is a breeze, and way bigger air filter cone than my last one. Engine sounds very nice now.
