I am looking to purchase the ford performance cai for my 2008 GT500. I will install it at home, but will need to drive it 20 miles to the Ford dealer for the return. Is the car driveable after installing the cai before the retune? If so, are there any risks in driving it the 20 miles before I can get it retune?

  • The Ford Performance Cold Air Intake may be drive-able, however it will function vary poorly. We would highly advise against driving the vehicle without the tune as it could cause engine complications.

I have purchased the CAI from you, and have to decide whether to buy a tuner or have the dealership install the CAI and reflash. Will the Bama tuner take care of the retune necessary after installing the CAI?

  • Bama can tune for the Ford Performance Cold Air Intake. You can also get as many tunes as you like for as long as you keep your mustang through the tunes for life program.

Can this be used whit Whipple 2.3L S/C I have a whipple 2.3L SC. It came with the CA legal death box intake. I also have the tube for the whipple, but no MAF or filter. The Steeda one I have doesn't fit (too long). Can this be modified a bit to fit for this application?

  • The Ford Performance Cold Air Intake may work in your application, but it is not CA legal, nor was it designed to work with the Whipple supercharger. It may require a lot of modification to work with your set up.

What are the dimensions of the filter? I'm looking for a filter to install on my JLT in front of my vortech V3 that is blue in color... Looking to use it only for shows and cruise ins. I would reinstall my normal filter for daily use.

  • Hi, Unfortunately we do not have access to the dimensions of this Ford Performance Cold Air Intake filter.

    Too Bad

    I was really looking forward to adding this to my GT500 as my first of many performance upgrades. The first order came with only the air intake tube which took several week to get that. Since I really wanted this setup I sent the old one back and received again only the air intake tube. I will take this as a sign from God that I should not be upgrading GT500 performance, as it has enough ponies for me!!!

    Recycle Parts

    The intake works great after properly tuned. If you don't tune an 07GT500 you will get a check engine light. The intake makes you recycle parts and hardware from the stock intake most noticeably the expansion joint that connects the filter to the intake manifold.

    Easy Install

    The Ford Performance CAI installed exactly as I expected. It was a high speed, low drag effort. If you want to keep your Shelby "All Ford", choose this CAI and accompany it with the Ford Performance axle-back exhaust.

    Noticeable Power Increase

    After installing this Cold Air system there was a noticeable difference in power. You can also hear the engine more, which I like. The installation took about 4 hours. That was after double and triple checking my work. I would definitely recommend this product.

    Ford Racing CAI

    Looks sharp under the hood. Install was easy, had to do some cutting with the radiator extension covers. Attached to my GT500 throttle body which was part of Magnacharger TVS SC. It My tuner was able to tune in an additional 25 HP with this CAI.

    Great Improvement in Horsepower

    The one thing that must be done is to have the tune done to get the best effect of the gain in power.

    Easiest power upgrade

    Very easy to install, remove a couple of bolts from the old intake and install the new one in place. Shouldnt take more than 30 to install. You need to install a computer tune with this intake.
