        Is this a better horsepower gain then the BBK cold air intake?

        • With cold air BBK and K&N are the two big names with great quality but all cold air are essentially the same so a cheaper alternative should be just as good.

        Does this work with the Stock MAF sensor? Or do you have to buy a new one?

        • Yes, this will work with the stock MAF sensor, but may require a tune depending on your other mod's or even the cold air intake.

            Big boy

            You need to have a bigger throttle body in order for it to fit properly..........80mm is the cold air intake and the stock throttle body on a GT is 66mm

            Better throttle response

            I purchased this about a month ago and what a difference with the throttle response. Very easy install took a little over an hour and fits very well. It also has a very nice look under the hood. I would recommend this product to anyone looking for significant throttle response.

            Not bad....

            I had some minor issues getting the whole thing to fit due to the enormous filter. (4"inlet x 9" L). I did get it to squeeze in, but the upper radiator support interferes with a quick install. I went and purchased a universal filter, and I retained the stock MAF housing. The aluminum CandL 80MM one kept creating a P0174 lean bank 2 code, and since putting the OEM housing back on it hasn't come back. With the money I had spent with AM I wish I had looked for a used one on Ebay.

            A must for your stang!!!!!!!

            Very easy install. Had a BBK cold air intake which compared to this C and L intake w/80mm MAF there's a HUGE difference in throttle response, engine runs much smoother and definitely gives your engine more power when used with the SCT 4 Bank Eliminator chip. Never really felt any power gains with the BBK intake plus chip, but the C and L intake w/80mm MAF, the power and throttle response was evident right away!!!!!;-) Wish I would have bought this a few years ago. This cost's more money$$$ but is worth it andI highly recommend this C and L product if you're looking to add an intake to your Mustang. And as always was shipped fast......................

            Nice upgrade

            I replaced my SR intake with this. The car seems to have more torque and runs stronger over 3k RPM compared to the SR intake.

            Great looks, easy install, good performance

            Great looking intake. Took about 20 minutes to install. The larger diameter, smoother MAF housing is a big improvement over factory. All in all a nice addition to the engine bay looks and performance wise.
