      Maximum Airflow. A C&L Performance Cold Air Intake kit will completely replace your V6 Mustang'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.

      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-776.

      Application. This C&L Performance Cold Air Intake is specifically designed for use on 2011-2014 Mustangs with the 3.7L V6 engine. No tune is required for operation.

        It's decent

        This intake fit great (real review btw not a bot) and performance gain was minimal, throttle response kinda? it makes WOOSH noises though and actually does make my stock exhaust louder. I haven't gotten a tune yet but it's on the way but for what it is i'm glad I got it.

        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

        Awesome improvement

        What a sound and what a look. Like I use to say "cold air intake is the starter-pack" when you buy a Mustang. Can definitely feel the throttle response difference.

        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.

        5 2014 V6 - StephenM Installation Time: Afternoon

        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.

      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.

      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.
