    Hey Justin from AmericanMuscle.com here, taking a closer look at these very budget friendly intakes from SR Performance, available in black or polished fitting all 96-04 Mustang GTs. This kit completely replaces the power robbing factory airbox in your GT with everything you see here, including a reusable high flow intake filter, heat shield, lightweight aluminum 2 piece intake shield in that polished black finish, and all the couplers and hardware needed for the install. If you didn’t know, cooler, denser air results in more horsepower, so with that in mind, this intake puts the filter right in the fender well, allowing for maximum cool air, especially when paired with that heat shield, that should prevent any hot engine bay air from entering the intake. Ok so we all want to know just how much power this intake is going to make, but in order to do so we do need to grab a quick baseline run from our automatic 2000 GT behind me, and then get to work installing this SR Performance intake. Removing the stock airbox and installing the new SR Performance intake is a pretty straightforward task that should only take you about an hour using basic hand tools. Keep in mind you will need to transfer the mass air housing and sensor to the new intake, because the SR Performance intake does not come with either. Even though the SR Performance intake does not require a tune, we are going to upload one of our custom 93 octane Bama tunes, in hopes of seeing some sizeable gains with this setup. This tune is going to optimize our spark timing, perfect our air/fuel ratios, and as a result we should be looking at some drastically improved throttle response. And for our automatic here we’re looking for increased shift firmness, in addition to adjustable shift points. Alright, with our intake bolted up and our tune loaded, we’re going to fire up our GT one more time and see how we do. So our baseline run with our automatic 2000 GT gave us 222 horsepower, and 260 ft/lbs of torque. With our cold air intake and bama combination, we put down 249 horsepower and 295 ft/lbs of torque, making for a peak gain of 27 horsepower over our baseline numbers, and gains of 35 horsepower and 54 ft/lbs of torque throughout the curve. Not only do we pick up more horsepower and torque using this setup, but we also improved our under the hood appearance as well, so even though this intake doesn’t have a big brand name attached to it, it certainly held up its end of the bargain, and delivered some nice gains for a price that’s very hard to beat. So be sure to check out an SR Performance cold air intake for your 4.6 right here at AmericanMuscle.com

    Improves Horsepower. This SR Performance Cold Air Intake kit completely replaces the factory air box and restrictive paper filter element in your 1996-2004 4.6 GT mustang with a high flow filter assembly for a noticeable increase in horsepower and throttle response while filtering out destructive power robbing dust particles. This CAI pulls cooler denser air from inside the inner fender well to make more power that you can feel.

    Reusable Filter. Included in this kit is a High Flow reusable air filter. So no need to go out and buy a new filter every few thousand miles. Just clean the filter, re-oil it, save money, and go!

    Polished Finish. A SR Performance Cold Air Intake not only improves horsepower and acceleration, but it also improves your Mustang's under hood appearance with a striking polished aluminum finish. Now you can have the best of both worlds, performance and style.

    Simple Install. SR Performance Cold Air Intake kits are relatively easy to install with basic hand tools. No extra modifications are required for the installation. See the video on the installation tab for an overview of the installation process.

    Application. This SR Performance Cold Air Intake is specifically designed for the 1996-2004 GT Mustangs equipped with the 4.6L V8 engine. It is not compatible with the 2001 Bullitt.

    Please Note. The MAF housing and sensor is not included with the SR Performance Cold Air Intake.

    Do I have to worry about sucking water? I live in an area that will get pretty good rainfalls at times and was curious if there was a need for concern about sucking up water with the filter location on this cold air intake.

    Kingfresh

    • I live in an area that gets a lot of rain, and I have never had a problem with this CAI. I've even driven through 3 foot floods to get to work (I would never recommend doing this to anyone), but I can assure you that rain does not affect this intake. It is inside the front of your wheel well, and won't be affected by water any more than a stock air filter would unless you drive through a flood. Have no concern

    fast idling Since installed I am experience a fast idler up to 2000rpm after depress the gas pedal then drop to normal, I still having to fix this out, can you guys help me on this. thank Jesus

    tcosme

    • Without knowing your vehicle and what other mods, assuming all was well when assembled etc, try cleaning your mass airflow sensor that can cause unusual idle. My favorite trick for idle problems to spray carb cleaner around vacuum lines and listen to the engine you will know you have a leak if the idle goes up a bit. Not a fix but it tells you where to start fixing. Honestly this is kind of a loaded question because there really is not enough info given in the question.

    Looking To Purchase I'm looking at getting this a cold air intake but is it as good as a 180 dollar or 230 dollar cold air intake ? Also other have better mpg and others have better acceleration does this cold air intake have the same benefits ? Are the benefits as good as others ? Will the chrome rust ? how much more hp will it add to a stock 4.6L V8 ? Will I have to do any reprogramming ?

    ProfessorReaper

    • The cold air intake is made out of aluminum, it will not rust. They say it will get you 4 or so more horses. You don't need to do any programming. The price is right.

    • The SR Performance Cold Air Intake uses a Dry Filter. So you will not need to oil it.

    Do you need maf housing and sensor and what happens if you don't get them does it trigger the check engine light if you don't get them? And lastly what's the purpose of them

    MalikN

    • The SR Performance Cold Air Intake will reuse your stock MAF housing and sensor. If this is not connected, the car will not run.

      Fantastic for the price

      Can't beat this intake for the price. Honestly, most of the advertised benefit of cold air intakes comes from the tune. Without the tune it's mostly an aesthetic mod. A brand name intake costs 3 times as much despite performance on par with this intake. Easy to install with common sense, can be tricky to insert filter into fender but not too bad.

      Good buuut

      They want you to pay extra money to get one day shipping, yet I got the free shipping and it came in one day... it does not right up to the car, but I had to do some slight modifying. I had to flare the ends of the piping so the filter wouldn't pop off, basically had to open up the ends of the pipe. And the little hose that comes with it will have to be cut and added to two other vacuum lines. Other than installing it, it works perfect, I feel a little difference in performance, I get less gas mileage in town but I'm highways I get another 5 miles per gallon.

      03 gt

      Installed on my 2003 gt. Overall not bad. Install wasnt hard, but didn't fit perfectly. It was two long nipples on the side that don't line up well. The one just barely hits the oil cap and makes it difficult to remove the cap. It also doesn't slide into the fender opening perfectly, takes some manipulation. That said, it looks great under the hood and only took 15 minutes to remove old and install new. Doesn't come with instructions but its straight forward.

      Installation was an absolute breeze, and everything fit exactly the way that it should. I did notice a little power increase and improved throttle response as well. I would definitely recommend this intake, especially when comparing prices to other similar products.

      No paperwork whatsoever in the box. Product finish is nice all pieces look good. Had to flare the end of the pipe where filter attaches because it wanted to slide off. Fender plate has a sloppy fit. So far it works.
