        How much horsepower will I gain ?

        • Hello! With this C&L Cold Air Intake, on its own it should give you about 5-10 hp or so. Now used in conjunction with aftermarket exhaust and such, to really open up the incoming air and exiting exhaust, you would see a lot more power!

        Hello, how much bigger is the housing (mm) on this C L over stock? Thanks.

        • The MAF housing is the same size as stock.

        If I am already running a Bama X4/SF4 Power Flash Tuner OTS 91 tune and purchase this CAI, do I need to re-tune? Is this a good opportunity to use one of the 3 Free Custom Tunes?

        • While a re-tune is not required, we recommend requesting an updated tune, as they're free for life and will provide additional power.

            Horrible

            Did not fit at all. Took some major work to get everything under the hood, then the heat-shield would get hit by the hood, and rattle when ever I turned right. After I looked under the hood to see if I could change anything, the filter fell off as I closed the hood and without my knowledge, if I had not planned on replacing it with the stock intake that night then I would have been driving around for days without a filter. Honestly just save up to buy a KandN

            Very nice!

            I've got a 2012 V6 Convertible, and I was sort of disappointed with how silent it sounded. I decided to buy a cold air intake before I upgraded my exhaust, and boy does it make the engine sound DEEP. It gives it a nice muscle car sound in the engine, and you can definantly feel the performance difference too. Highly recommend, took about an hour to install and make sure you tighten the clamps down tightly and correctly or else it could loosen and pop off a tiny bit.

            Improved sound and mpg

            The intake system is good quality. The installation was easy with the exception of the reinstallation of mass air flow sensor. I found the instructions confusing and installed it backward. The car wouldn't start. I turned it around and it started right up. It would also be helpful if there was directions on the cleaning procedure for the filter element. Overall I'm very happy with this system.

            Great way to add noise and power.

            The instructions I received with the intake were for an 05-09 GT but the instructions for my 2014 v6 were online. Installation was pretty straight forward but the fit is TIGHT. The heat shield was rubbing against my hood when I would close it so I just took a heat gun and bent it down. Other than those few obstacles I'm very happy with how my car sounds. Paired with an axle back kit you can't go wrong.

            Worth it

            To start off, I chose the CandL over the KandN simply because it was cheaper and boasted more power gains on the AM website. Without a tune, I can already feel an increase in torque at the bottom and more power at the top. The exhaust tone is definitely deeper, and it absolutely screams at the top of the rpm band. You wouldn't believe it's a stock exhaust if I told you, especially going under a bridge. My favorite part, however, is the new suction sound the intake makes. It's constantly breaking necks. As for installation, I installed it myself in a little over an hour with absolutely 0 hours of experience. Only reason it took so long is because I wanted to be sure I got it right. Fit is a little tight, but I prefer that than a loose part. Overall worth it and if you speak with an AM representative before purchase they might give you a $10 discount like they gave me.

            Nice but not what it seems

            I finally decided to go with the CandL besides the Airaid. This intake looks nice, sounds nice and performs nice. But the installation however is different. What they dont mention is that you have to drill to attach the shield properly, also I somehow got the instructions for a 05-09 mustang GT not a 11-14 mustang v6 so i had to do the install from looks. And at least for my car the fit was a little awkward and so i had to improvise on some connection with the shield.

            Great acceleration and great sound!!

            Just with the CandL intake itself gives your stang a great acceleration, you will be able to notice the difference really fast. When I first installed it I was able to notice it my car sounded meaner and the air sucktion from it made a great sound. Highly recommend everyone to get it. It also gave my car a bit more gas mileage. On a full tank it gave me 314 now it goes to 358. It's awesome and it's so worth it.

            Great product, horrible instructions

            The bottom line is that this product will make your V6 SCREAM with an amazing roar throughout the mid to upper RPM range. When you accelerate, especially in 2nd gear, the sound that will come from under your hood will make those in the vicinity jerk their necks to see the incredible sound that your engine is pumping out. The sound is so amazing that I'm wondering if I should even invest in new mufflers. It is that good. That said, the only downside to this cold air intake package is the instructions (or lack thereof) that come with this product. They are bad. Really bad. Using just words and two tiny photographs of the finished product at the very end of the 2-page text-based document is sub-standard and lacks the step-by-step detail that needs to be shown with photos and/or illustrations. The instructions that are currently available online are for the 5.0 engine, but even those instructions lack the detail needed for this install. The product is not the same design and it doesn't adequately address the direction of the MAF sensor once installed into the aluminum housing. I love this product, but the instructions may make increase the installation time beyond what you are lead to believe. Bottom line, I am glad I bought it, just a little frustrated at the lack of C&L's investment in creating a quality instruction guide.

            Very good, but

            Not so good fit. The filter touches a metal part which gets hot and has started to deteriorate the filter metal mesh. No matter what rotation, or angle i try, it always touches that metal part of the car. Also i think the location is simlpy too close, can't we have an extension to go lower to get colder air? Love the sound otherwise and HP/TQ gains.

            C&L Cold Air Intake

            The product arrived good and in good condition. I went to install it and the instructions I received in the box were useful but hard to understand at some points. The only hard part of the install was getting the silicon gaskets over the MAF housing, air pipe, and throttle body other than that the install was easy. Oh and at first there is a little bit of a burning smell but it subsides.

            Great sound and performance

            I got this kit as a father's day present and immediately installed it. Right off the get go, it changed the sound coming from my engine from a rumble to a GROWL......very nice. I noticed a two MPG increase in fuel efficiency and faster throttle response. The only thing I have against this kit is I could not get the filter to sit nicely in the housing once installed no matter how I rotated the tube. What ended up happening is the filter rubbed through where it was contacting the extremely sharp corner on the ABS module..(BAD ON FORD FOR THIS)..oh well. Now i replaced the filter with a K & N until i can order a replacement C & L filter. Overall i am very happy with this cold air intake.
