        1 2007 GT - Logan127 Installation Time: Less than 1 Hour


        I am a long time customer of American Muscle, and unfortunately, they truly have wronged me here. I bought this intake back when they claimed "it didn't need a tune," and now, they advertise the SAME intake as one that needs a tune. When I called initially, they said that it will work without a tune, which it didn't. It threw check engine lights, and wouldn't even run. Now, they fully claim it needs a tune, which they vehemently disagreed with me over the phone about. Very poor fit and finish as well, buy another intake, from another company. I am very disappointed with American Muscle on this one.

        We will see

        Mixed impression on appearance. MAF housing is decent quality, but the inlet tube casting is poor. The inside of the inlet tube is rough cast with mold seams, and the exterior is pitted/rough. Some time spent sanding the inside of the inlet helps with the finish. Too many blemishes to polish with a lot of sanding marks on the exterior. Not what I expected, but it’s not an expensive CAI either. The filter box looks nice but doesn’t fit well either. Doesn’t look like a a lot of thought was put into it. MAF mounting bracket is nice, and the overall unit is sturdy once it’s secured in place. I used a press to remove the stock valve cover bolt from the bushing then chased the threads with a die. Next, I filed down the inside dimples of the standoff in the grommet so I could reuse the stock valve cover bolt for mounting the bracket. Clearances are close but nothing rubs and doesn’t need much manipulating to get in place. Easy to install for a noob like me and doesn’t take long if you keep the OCD in check.

        1 2006 GT - JuneS

        Poor workmanship

        Cast aluminum part has in air flow area / mold seam mark , sand holes that had been second rate fixed and not even tried to smooth out , lumps where there was holes in their sand mold. The outside had sand holes so it looked bad. American muscle did treat us right and refunded our money

        Great looks with a performance boost.

        Easy install. Noticable performance gain with tune. Loses 1 point for inaccuracies in instructions and requiring a zip tie for installation. The silver looks great under the hood and using metal gives it a muscle car feel. Would definitely recommend. Installs in about an hour.

        Big air gains

        I feel an immediate boost in power once my car revs up to about 2800 rpm, and just wants to take flight. My tune was delayed by about a week so I had been driving without the required tune for about a week, the check engine light will come on and your car won't be at peak performance but it won't run badly or anything. I was able to install this in under an hour, the kit came well packed everything was safe and nothing was missing. Make sure to use the maf housing screws they include when you put your stock maf sensor into the new housing. It came with directions that were fairly helpful (no pictures though come on lol) everything was fairly easy to install except the optional mounting bracket that secures the maf housing part to the valve cover of your engine itself, keeping the intake assembly in place during hard driving. I couldn't figure out how to get the screw out from the valve cover that the mount attaches to, so we ended up cutting a portion of the mount to slide it past the base of the screw and then just tightened the screw down onto the remaining part of the thing.

        Awesome mod

        Just make sure to use the screws given in the kit to insert into the MAF sensor housing otherwise the screws will break.

      Questions & Answers (5 answers)

      5 Top Rated Questions

      If it requires a tune, is it still CARB certified in California when installed on a 2009 Mustang GT, 3 valve, 4.6L V8 engine? Is the non-tune version of this product CARB certified (2009 Mustang GT)? The CARB EO states it can not be tuned to be certified in California. Can you give me a straight answer?

      • So this item will be carb legal and you can get a tune that will also be carb legal and that would accommodate the options needed to be legal for you.

      can I tune this cai with my DIABLO SPORT INTUNE I2?

      • This C&L Street Cold Air Intake w/ 83mm MAF requires a custom tune and the Diablosport inTune i2 Tuner, item 390009 does not contain a tune specifically for that intake. We would highly recommend a tune that comes with custom tunes - attached below is a link to a page with all of our tuners.

      Will this intake fit a 2010 mustang gt with the sound tube removed off the car and intake?

      • The C&L Street Cold Air Intake w/ 83mm MAF is specifically designed for the 05-09 and will not fit the 2010. We do offer the C&L Cold Air Intake w/ 95mm MAF which will fit the 2010 I have provided a link below.
