Review & Install Video

Hey, guys. Stephanie with AmericanMuscle.com here with my review of the C&L Street Cold Air Intake, available for the 2015 and up Mustang GT. The C&L Street Cold Air Intake is going to be for the S550 GT owners out there who are looking for a closed element cold air intake that also keeps the direct cold air feed that Ford has created from factory. But that doesn't necessarily require a computer re-tune. A cold air intake is normally one of the first mods that many Mustang owners go to. But a lot of times the question of "Is a tune required?" has an impact on the intake that is chosen. And the C&L right here is an option that brings other benefits besides just performance gains to the table, but without requiring a tune. But speaking of gains, let's break the numbers down first before getting into the intake. We already ran a baseline run and got some numbers in the book. So we're going to run the car again with the C&L installed. Now we did pair a 93 octane tune with the intake, even though this intake does not require a tune. But we wanted to see the full potential that the intake has, and here's what we found. Our baseline run with our 2015 GT gave us numbers of 387 horsepower and 365 foot pounds of torque at the rear wheels. With the C&L in tune installed those numbers changed to 412 horsepower and 387 foot pounds of torque, making for a peak gain of 25 horsepower over those baseline numbers. Our gains throughout the curve showed as much as 34 horsepower and 33 foot pounds of torque right in that 4,000 to 5,500 RPM range. These are the gains that you're actually going to notice when you're driving, especially in this RPM range. Now since we did pair this with a tune, keep in mind that a lot of the gains that you're seeing will be attributed to that tune. If we take a closer look at the C&L, it's first off by popular intake on the site, and one that's going to come in at the top of the line in-regards to price at right around $400. But also in quality and fitment as well. And all of C&L's products are built and tested in the USA, which is just something that I like to point out. But looking at the specifics here, this does include a reusable filter that you can easily wash and re-oil when it gets a little dirty. And it's not the biggest filter that I've seen for an aftermarket S550 cold air intake. But it's not the smallest either. One of the big things that I wanted to point out with this intake though is the housing here. First of all, it's enclosed, which you're only going to see from other options like Airaid and JLT right now. It has a plexiglass lid that's removable, so you can get to your filter easily, or see without having to take the air-box apart. The other cool thing about the housing is that it taps into the cold air duct, which brings cool air in from the grill instead of using warm engine compartment air. And like I mentioned earlier, this particular intake does not require a tune. But the small gains and drive-ability that you'll see from the intake alone can be greatly amplified by running a tune, just as a side note. As for the install, it's nothing too difficult, and the intake will come with all of the items that you'll need, including your clamps and your hardware. All you really need to complete the install is a few sockets and a Flathead for the plastic pins. This is probably one of the easier mods that you can tackle with your new Mustang and will probably take about a half hour to an hour tops. And I'm going to call this a one out of three wrenches on our scale. Wrapping things up here, I think the C&L Street Intake is a well built intake that works with an enclosed air-box and taps into that cold air duct that Ford has provided for the intake. It fits well and has a decent sized reusable filter, and it does not require a tune. You can check this intake out more online for yourself, and for all things Mustang keep it right here at AmericanMuscle.com.

    Great First Mod!

    This was the first mod I ordered and installed on my GT, couldn't be happier with the end result! Not only does it look great under the hood, combined with a custom tune from Bama, this woke my Stang up! My only negative was having to modify one of the rubber grommets to get the intake to fit and line up with the throttle body properly. This was the only reason I dropped to 4 Stars.
