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.Helpful (0)

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 KandNHelpful (3)

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.Helpful (5)

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.Helpful (7)

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.Helpful (6)

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 this is parred with roush exhausts and tuned correctly. How much horsepower could I potentially gain?
Can I order a replacement filter? What do I order? I would like to have two to alternate out....Thanks
Yes, a replacement filter is available for purchase. It is item number 389011 and can be found here: https://www.americanmuscle.com/cnl-35in-8in-airfilter.html
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.
This would not come with a blue filter no.
Yes, we do offer an installation guide for this item which can be found here: https://lib.americanmuscle.com/files/98423-manu.pdf.
Please reach out directly to our customer service department as we will help source a CARB sticker for this product so that you have no issues with inspection.
The C&L Cold Air Intake will work with the Flowmaster refresh kit to clean the filter. Link will be provided below. https://www.americanmuscle.com/flowmaster-cold-airtake-filter-refresh-kit-7917-mustang.html
The C&L Cold Air Intake with the Bama Rev-X tuner will add around 30 more horsepower to your car.
The C&L Cold Air Intake will is designed to reuse the existing MAF sensor. We recommend the stock MAF for the most trouble free performance.
Hello! This filter comes pre oiled!
Hello! Both of the intakes will give you around the same gains roughly.
This CAI will work perfectly fine with a throttle body spacer.
Horsepower ratings, especially for this CAI, are ballpark measured with a tune. This is a ballpark figure because other variables will factor into how much HP is gained with the addition of a CAI such as altitude, quality of air, temperature, other modifications etc.
