Features & Details

  • Maximize Airflow for More Horsepower
  • 80mm MAF Housing
  • Flow Bench Engineered and Tested
  • Durable Cast Aluminum Construction

Maximum Airflow. A C&L Performance Cold Air Intake kit will completely replace your SVT Cobra'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 performance.

Pre-calibrate 80mm MAF Housing. This C&L Performance cold air intake kit includes a brand new cast aluminum 80mm MAF housing that is already calibrated for use with the stock 24 lb. fuel injectors, MAF sensor not included.

Made in the USA. Proudly made in the USA from the highest quality materials available, this C&L Performance Cold Air Intake has been extensively flow bench tested and engineered to out perform the competition.

No Tune Required. Unlike other Cold Air Intakes on the market, the C&L CAI does not require a computer re-tune. The engineers at C&L really did their homework to improve your pony's power using the stock tune.

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.

Easy Installation. C&L Performance Cold Air Intake kits are designed to install with just basic hand tools. No extra modifications or special tools are required for an easy 1 hour installation.

CARB Certified. Best of all, this Mustang C&L Cold Air Intake Kit is 50-state smog legal under Carb EO# D-640.

Application. This C&L Performance Cold Air Intake System is specifically designed for use on 1999 to 2001 SVT Cobra Mustangs equipped with the DOHC 4-valve 4.6L modular V8 engine.

      5 Top Rated Questions

      Will this fit a 99 Cobra convertible with the stock shock tower braces? Also would I need to order anything else to get it installed?

      What is HP gain from this intake?

      • This intake will provide roughly a 10-15 HP without a tune.

      I purchased this CAI and am having issues with getting a engine code indicating a lean condition. Even adding fuel with my tuner does not stop the codes. I noticed in your description that the 80mm MAF housing is calibrated for 19lb fuel injectors. The problem is 1999 and 2001 Cobras have 24lb injectors. Is the MAF housing correctly calibrated?

      • This is designed to work with your stock 24 pound injectors. If you are still having troubles I would suggest speaking with your tuner or contacting American Muscle Customer Service to see if you can troubleshoot the issue.

      I looked on the C L website but could not determine the HD and Torque gains with this setup. Does anyone have dyno results for this CAI?

      • We have not yet tested the C&L Cold Air Intake w/ 80mm MAF, so we do not yet have the results for this intake kit.

      '99 Cobra, will this fit with the MM strut tower brace?

      • If it is the Maximum Motorsports strut tower brace that you are referring to, then the C&L Cold Air Intake w/ 80mm MAF should not have a problem. The pieces may make contact since the C&L Cold Air Intake has the larger MAF housing and tubing, but both parts should operate just fine.

          C and l cold air intake

          This is an awesome product. Adds a lot of top end power which you can feel. My only negative thing I could say is that I would recommend putting it together before installing as it is a very tight fit. Other than that good job and great product for the price!

          Great cold air

          This is far better then the bbk cold air that I bought and its 100 bucks cheaper, comes with a bigger air filter and even a MAF that would of cost me more with my build I'm doing. I diffentley can feel the difference in the performance for this from the bbk on. So I say do your research before buying and price it out figure what you want out of your build!

          Cold air intake

          Didn't really feel a power gain but it's hard to tell with only a few hp. Was a very sung fit. Would recommend because of look and small power gain.

          Good quality

          Quality parts and proper sensor locations. The fitment was very tight and took some time trying to piece it together for the huge air filter to fit behind the headlight.

          It looks good in the engine bay and matches the stock manifold, better throttle response than stock

          cai

          seems to be a good snug fit but it went together fairly easy took about 15 minutes to put together and install so if you this you should be on the road in no time but have not droven the car yet so i cant say how well it works with the bigger maf housing and tube

          C L kit on 99 Cobra

          With no BBK kits around this is a great option for the SVT Cobra. The flow sensor housing makes for a nicer package and a great look on the car.

          Needs tune for Cobra

          Install the cold air intake and as soon as I started my car it ran rough. Service light came on 2 minutes later. Took to mechanic and he advised I need a tune. The description says that you did not need a tune, but this is not true.

          Did a cobra swap on my GT. This was perfect to compliment the rest of my engine bay. Painted it wrinkle black. Looks great and performs well. I can hear it breath!

          Never go wrong with this intake. Feel slight performance gain but would be way better with a tune.

          Breath of fresh air

          I recieved my CnL cold air, 80 mm maf and filter on time. Very easy install ! Just a note ( fully assemble kit before starting leaving all clamps loose. Don't start at intake plenum and assemble piece by piece leaving filter for last.) My 99 cobra pulls better at lower rps( 2000-3200), and breathes better (3500) right where she grows legs up 6800 with no nose over. Great kit for the money. Also like casting numb on the back side of 90 before last boot n clamps. Perfect for drilling n tapping for nitrous fitting. And with a 20 min install. My opinion thumbs up.

          Great quality but very tight fit. Not looking forward to cleaning the filter because pulling it will be interesting.
