    Review & Installation Video

    Hey everyone, I’m Justin with AmericanMuscle.com checking out a great started mod with the versatility to expand with your horsepower needs and your budget. I’m talking about the C&L intake kit for all your 2011 and up mustang GTs. That versatility comes from C&Ls unique design which includes this metal insert allowing you to run this kit with or without a tune. So if you are just starting out and don’t have the money to get a tune right away, but plan on getting one down the road, this intake is for you. Whether or not you decide to run a tune this intake will definitely give you a nice bump in sound by replacing your factory air box with everything you see here, including; a plastic heat shield, the intake tube itself, reusable high flow filter and that special metal insert. Now whenever you run a cold air intake kit more power is the obvious expectation however you tend to get better throttle response and improved fuel efficiency, as well as my favorite part, that nice little growl to your engine. As we mention earlier you don’t need to run a tune with this intake from C&L but if you want to see custom gains then you will definitely want to pair it up with our custom BAMA tune and remove that insert. So were going to get a baseline number down from our 2011 first and see what kind of improvements this kit makes. So in stock form our automatic 2011 GT put down 345 HP and 303 TQ at the rear wheels. Now let’s get that restrictive factory air box out of there and install this intake from C&L which should only take you an hour using standard hand tools. As I mentioned earlier were going to pair this intake up with our custom 93 octane BAMA tune to really maximize our gains. This is going to optimize, spark timing, adjust your variable cam timing, get that air fuel ratio right in the sweet spot and get drastically improved throttle response. And for you automatic guys it’s also going to increase shift firmness and adjust your shift points, now with our kit installed and our tunes loaded let’s see what it’s done to our 2011 GT. Well we just finished up our second run with our C&L intake and BAMA tune combination where we made 365 HP and 338 TQ, making for a peak gain of 20 HP over our baseline numbers and 57HP and TQ throughout the curve. So even though we ran this intake with the tune and made some big gains, you do have the luxury of bolting this up, running it without a tune and making considerable more power over your factory air box. So even if you don’t have a tune yet but plan on getting one in the future, this kit from C&L has you covered.

    Maximum Airflow. A C&L Performance "Street" Cold Air Intake kit will completely replace your GT Mustang's restrictive factory air box and paper filter element with a high flow filter assembly to maximize airflow for a noticeable increase in horsepower, torque and performance. By replacing your restrictive factory intake you can except to see gains of up to 57 horsepower and 57 ft. lbs. of torque.

    Pre-calibrate 95mm MAF Housing. This C&L Performance cold air intake kit includes a brand new cast aluminum 95mm MAF housing that is already calibrated for use with the factory fuel injectors, MAF sensor not included.

    45% More Airflow. The factory intake used on the 2011-2012 GT is actually more restrictive than the one used on the 2010 GT. But by replacing it with a high-flow C&L assembly, your GT will unleash the sleeping monster under the hood. In fact, the C&L has been tested to improve airflow by up to an amazing 45%, even without a tune.

    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 when installed with the included "no tune option" calibration insert tube. If the calibration insert tube is not installed a new tune will be required for operation. In that case AmericanMuscle recommends a custom Bama tune with a Mustang Handheld Tuner to reprogram the vehicles computer (ECU) for operation.

    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.

    Application. This C&L Performance "Street" Cold Air Intake System is specifically designed for use on 2011 to 2014 GT Mustangs equipped with the DOHC 4-valve 5.0L Coyote V8 engine.

    5 Top Rated Questions

    Any chance of water getting into the CAI through the heat extractor vents?

    • The C&L Street Cold Air Intake w/ 95mm MAF for the 11-14 GT Mustangs will have a specific design to seal to the hood when shut for the factory 13-14 GT hoods. This will prevent water from leaking into the cold air intake area.

    I have two questions, how much HP and TQ will I get using this with a BAMA tune without 93 octane? Because I'm in California and 93 isn't available for me. Second question is can I use this CAI without a tune and just use it with the C L performance sensor?

    • Power gains will be very similar between 91 and 93 octane. typically we see 12-15hp. No tune is required if the calibration tube is left installed.

    What type of cleaner and oil should be used to maintain the filter?

    • To maintain this filter, you just need to clean and re-oil it! You can use any recharge kits like this BBK Cleaner & Re-Oil Kit! It is Item number 398464 and you can find it here: https://www.americanmuscle.com/bbk-air-filter-cleaner-re-oil-kit-79117.html

    Does the calibration tube come with this intake? And will the intake still produce 57rwhp without a custom tune?

    • The C&L Street Cold Air Intake will include the calibration tube. Horsepower gains will be limited without the use of a tune.

      Instant Sound and Performance Improvement!

      What a difference over the stock intake. I debated a lot back and forth between the CandL and the PMAS intake, but I'm thrilled with the CandL. Throttle response and sound was dramatically improved from the second I fired the car up after install. Getting on the throttle you can really hear the intake working, and all that air rushing into the motor. Low end torque is really about the same, but on the top end is where you feel the bigger difference. Power with this intake and the right tune is really linear. The CandL also just looks incredible under the hood. Couldn't be happier with this set-up.

      It defiantly helps it breathe better. I like how it has the removable sleeve for more power when installing a flash tuner. I haven't tried it with the tuner yet but I will be shortly.

      Performs as advertised

      Between the instructions and YouTube the system was esay to install. Took less than an hour. First time I took the car for a ride I could immediately tell a difference. I'd recommend this system to anyone that wants to up their engines performance but not spend a lot to do it.

      Great intake

      This intake along with a performance tune is awesome. The good thing is if you dont have a tuner, dont want a tune or are waiting to get a tune, it comes with a sleeve so you can run it without a retuning. When you are ready to tune just unhook 1 side, pull out the sleeve and now you have a 95mm MAF with a noticeable power increase. I would recommend this product along with the Borla S-type axle back exhaust. With those two items, you will sound like a beast and get quite a bit added HP.

      C L Street CAI (no tune)

      I picked CandL because of their long history with the Mustang community... This CAI does not dissapoint in any kind of way. Installation was easy. Directions are easy to understand. One thing is don't use the mounting screws from the factory MAF on the CandL intake. They will not work Use the screws provided w/the CandL CAI. I like the versatility of this product as I do plan on getting a tune later and can remove the insert. Without buying another CIA.... without the tune a noticeable increase in throttle response. No HP gains noticed in the lower rpm's but above 3000 rpm's you can tell it's on the car.... A great product from CandL that I would recommend for any Mustang owner looking for a CIA Mod....

      Good performance, but big issue

      I have an 2014 5.0 automatic. This intake installation was a breeze until I got to the middle hose on the intake tube that just the automatic mustangs have. The manual cars use the plug but I had to connect that hose back and when I tried it does not fit, I tried EVERYTHING. Even my mechanic said it doesn’t fit. Now I have the hose halfway on and the clip broke. Be aware of this if you drive an automatic and aren’t looking to get this intake. Now I am stuck solving this problem.

      It's awesome! Worth every penny!

      This c@ l intake system is awesome! Got it installed about two weeks and can't get enough time behind the wheel. Haven't got the tune yet but can definitely feel the gain in power. Exspecailly around the 4 to 5000 rpm range. Really has a kick in power and great sound at that point.

      Easy to install and looks great. I added Boss 302 intake manifold and tune so I’m not sure on the power increase for just intake, but I can say all that added lots of power.

      Perfect Addition!!!!

      This kit delivers everything that it promises. I have a Diablo Trinity tuner and it has worked as a great duo to add some more power to my 2011 GT. I will say this though the instructions for install are a little vague for the auto trans which is what I have. Basically there are two inlets instead of one as on the manual. You need to cut about 2.5 inches of the tube off to apply it to the barbed nipple supplied. But besides that install was a breeze. Could not be happier!!
