Simple installation for anyone.
Hey guys, Stephanie here with americanmuscle.com, here with my overview and an install of the Corsa Pro5 Closed Box Air Intake System, available for the 2015 and up GT Mustang. This overview is going to cover a few topics with the Corsa intake, like what you can expect from this intake, some info about the components and construction, and some info about the install. The install for this is a simple one. It's a one out of three wrenches on the scale, but I'll get more into that a little later on. The Corsa Pro5 intake is going to be for the S550 GT owners out there that are looking for a cold air intake that maintains a direct cold air feed from the grille of the car, keeps a closed airbox, and that does not require a tune. Aftermarket cold air intakes are a popular mod, but there are a few different choices out there between airbox styles and filters. The Corsa here is a closed element style intake, and it has this housing which is closed and keeps the filter separated from the engine compartment air. This intake is going to come with a few pieces. You have your air filter, your inlet tube, clamps and couplers, air filter box, and air duct, and it is going to come with all the necessary hardware that you'll need to get this intake installed. Now this is a no tune required intake as well, so you don't have to worry about a tune. It is one of the intake options that you can just bolt on and go if you want to. Normally an aftermarket intake would require a tune if the math housing size is much larger than the factory one, so a computer tune would be required to recalibrate, but in this case it's not needed, so you don't have to worry about that. But I will say you're only going to see gains of a few horsepower if you end up not pairing the intake with a tune. As far as the factory intake goes, it's actually a good intake. It's highly functional and it isn't as restrictive as you might think, but what we tend to see is aftermarket cold air intakes tend to function a little better than the factory intake in the upper RPMs, and especially after some mods have been completed. The Corsa here is one of the more thorough designs though, since it is a closed element filter and it does maintain the cold air feed from the grille. This is all going to help boost its performance, and these features make it one of the more complete aftermarket intake options.Taking a look at some of the components of the intake, the air filter is a reusable oiled filter. It's made from a polyurethane frame with five layers of finer mesh cotton gauze. Oil is used to treat the cotton gauze to give it a tackiness and give it the filtration abilities that it needs. What's nice about the reusable filter is they even clean the filter when it's dirty and reinstall and not have to worry about purchasing a new filter every time. Another thing that I wanted to point out is this airbox. Like I said, it is a closed element airbox so it's going to keep the air filter off by itself, only taking air from the grille of the car. This means no hot engine compartment air will be used and this box is designed to increase the volume of air that's available to the air filter. Looking at the price for this intake you can expect to pay between $300 and $400 for it. Now like I said, this intake does have a combination of features that not every other aftermarket cold air intake offers, like the closed airbox and maintaining the direct cold air feed from the grille of the car. This intake is actually more budget friendly than most others, but if you are thinking this is too much for you, there are other cold air intake options on the site that are less expensive but they just might not have this combination of features.As for the install, it's nothing too difficult and like I mentioned earlier, the intake will come with all of the items that you need to complete the install. All that you need to complete the install is a few basic hand tools. This is probably one of the easier mods that you can tackle with your new Mustang, and it'll take about a half hour or an hour tops, and I'm going to call it a one out of three wrenches on our scale. All that you really need to do is remove the factory airbox. You need to disconnect the airbox from the inner fender and remove the inlet tube from the air filter on the throttle body. We're just talking about a few bolts and clamps to get this done. Now the Corsa here is going to come pretty much as you see it on the table, it is one of the most pre-assembled air intakes that I've personally seen myself, so they've done a lot of the work for you already which is going to make the install even easier. The Corsa installs nearly the same way that the factory airbox came out, so the install is pretty much the same as installing a factory intake. Just get your new couplers and clamps on and slide the air filter and shroud into place and tighten everything down.Wrapping things up here, this intake from Corsa offers a closed airbox, or it's a closed element style, and it keeps the direct cold air feed from the grille of the car and it does not require a tune. This intake is also going to look better under the hood than the factory airbox does. It has a reusable filter that's easy to clean and reinstall when the time comes, and you guys can check it out more online for yourself right here at americanmuscle.com.
