Feel the difference
This cold air intake was easy to install my friend thought he knew but i just followed the instructions and did it myself. This was the first mod for my 2002 mustang gt and i got to feel exactly how much faster it felt. Will recommendHelpful (0)

I noticed immediate power gains and a nice, deep exhaust growl with this CAI. Works well with my Flowmaster. Instructions not very helpful. Put together with trial and error and common sense.Helpful (0)

57 FIPK COLD AIR INTAKE
The 57 FIPK was a great fit for my 2001 stage 3 Roush. I can feel and hear a difference in air flow from the m90 supercharger.Helpful (0)

K N air intake
Great cold air intake fits perfectly and increases horsepower. Makes engine breath a lot better. Felt a big difference in a 4th gear pull.Helpful (0)

This is definitely a great cold air intake for my 99 GT however I ran into one problem. The intake uses two brackets that that will then meet and tighten down on a bolt that comes out right below the valve cover if I remember correctly. On my gt that bolt wasn't there, instead, wires were exiting through that hole. So instead I had to zip tie the intake to the side panel and now it stays in place fine. If you have a 99 GT make sure your aware that you don't have that bolt coming out of your motor, its wires.Helpful (1)

You can really feel the difference! It wasn’t a little hard to install because it’s a tight fit but well worth it!Helpful (0)

Gains power and gives it a meaner sound. Im sure it would gain from an aftermarket exhaustHelpful (5)
I want to add the most power I can possible should I go with this product or a bbk cold air intake?
On a 96-04 Mustang, the BBK Cold Air intake will get you a bit more power than the K&N FIPK Cold Air Intake.
Will I have any issues fitting this to my 2000 Saleen with the supercharger?
The 2000 Saleen Supercharged Mustangs have slightly different intake fitment, so this will not work on that Mustang.
Will this work with BBK 78mm T/B? Does the upper hose coupler from the plastic intake tube directly fit onto the intake port of the 78mm T/B or will I need to find a new hose?
BBK includes multiple fittings in the 78 T/B kit since the hose sizes changed halfway through the 99-04 production. So, the shouldn't be a need to change the hose itself. However, the coupler connecting the FIPK to the mouth of the T/B should be changed.
Where do i find the optional tune
So there's a little gap where the gasket and long/short bracket go. Should I be concerned?
I would suggest contacting our customer service department, as we would want to see some photos of the gap to be sure that you are not missing anything!
Yes, it is possible to replace the filter! K&N makes a direct fit replacement for the K&N FIPK Cold Air Intake here: https://www.americanmuscle.com/kn-cai-filter-9604gt.html
Hello Louis, This will only be for the Gt model because the intake systems are different for both cars.
The SR Performance strut tower should provide enough clearance for this cold air intake.
The computer would not be able to correctly interpret this if wired in this way. You would need to drill a hole in the tube and insert a grommet for the sensor to ensure an accurate reading from the IAT sensor.
Hello, unfortunately this K&N FIPK Cold Air Intake (96-04 GT) does not show fitment for the 95 GT, but if you would like a CAI for your year range and not have it go into the fender, then I would advise C&L Cold Air Intake w/ 76mm MAF Housing (94-95 GT) http://www.americanmuscle.com/cnl-76maf-cai-9495gt.html just remember to choose your correct LB Injectors.
The K&N FIPK Cold Air Intake (96-04 GT) will be California legal, and this will have a carb EO number of D-269-28.
It will work perfectly fine, and you dont need a tuner for this intake either. But having one just makes it oh soo much better.
I installed this kit in my 2004 GT. Since I make a habit of recording mileage, I can tell you it gave me almost 3 miles per gallon more travelling on the interstate. These trips were about 2400 miles each (round trip), so it was relatively easy to gauge. Since my daily commute in the city changed around the time I installed the intake, I can't qualify the difference in mileage - more stop and go on the new commute.
You do not need to replace the air filter, just clean it. There are several kits available that have a cleaning solvent and a filter oiler. K&n warranties their filters for 1,000,000 miles.
The filter is designed to last for at least 100,000 miles, and K&N sells recharge kits for their filters, which do work great. When you buy any K&N Filter, it should come with a warranty card that you're supposed to keep with your vehicle, giving you the details and a guarantee. Their filters are really reliable, the only reason you might have to buy a replacement is if it's torn or been through some really extreme conditions.
