    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.

    • 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

    • 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 ?

    • 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.

      Bad Fit and Finish

      The ends of the intake tubing that connect to the MAF housing were all crooked and I had to bend them flat so the gasket would seal. Also no instructions, even it is a straight forward install, there should probably be instructions. But, hey it was cheap.

      Buy it.

      I'm a mechanic from Utah, Weather is terrible lately. This part is bang for your buck. Although I will admit the air filter is slightly small so I would recommend buying a slightly bigger one along with this set up. Other than that, All I can say is blow the cash. It's worth it in my opinion.

      Very Functional!

      This CAI was well worth the money! I installed it in about 45 minutes, and it boosted my power just enough to get the “second gear tire chirp.” It looks amazing under the hood too! 9.5/10 rating, only because they did not include one screw, washer, and nut that was needed for the installation.

      Instructions aren't great but it's fairly easy to install. Looks great and fits well. Didn't really notice a performance gain but I have a stock car and didn't expect any. For $50 it's sweet.

      Best bang for your buck.

      So I've had this intake on my car for 2 days so far. In this short time, I've notice a better throttle response. Nothing to scream about, but it feels good. My car has over 200k miles and the stock air intake piping was 20yrs old and nasty. She stills needs some work done, but with my other problems, this intake made things a bit a smoother. As far installation goes, was a breeze. Doesn't come with instructions. The iat needs to be swapped and the hole for it is a little to small. And the heat shield doesn't mount in factory location

      Best budget cold air

      The only thing I can recommend is that your car absolutely must have the fender skins or your filter will be constantly needing cleaned or replaced. I immediately went to a different name brand filter with this intake and I have good gains in the top end and the induction noise is a good plus.

      Best Bang for the Buck

      For the price point this is the best bang for the money. Its aesthetically pleasing but without exhaust work and other performance mods you really don't notice any power gains. However, it is not a simple 20min install. It took me over an hour to install due to the heat shield and filter placement. You have to put the tube the hold the filter thru the heat shield first and then attach the filter before installing the heat shield and tube(unless you want to install the filter from underneath). The holes predrilled in the heat shield for the pegs that hold it in place are drilled wrong and will not line up properly causing it not to sit right. The silicone couplers are almost to small and are hard to put on making it a most to install them before installing in the car but then the fit is so tight it is almost impossible to install on the throttle body. Lastly the rubber grommet for the air intake temperature sensor is to small to push the sensor thru all the way, but you can't remove it or the sensor won't stay in at all. Still haven't figured out a fix to that since I'd have to remove the intake tube to take care of it and that's a hassle I just don't want to deal with right now. So for now it's just pushed as far in as it'll go and so far so good no CEL. So overall if your going for looks this is the best product for the money as it does look good (even though I scratched mine trying to install properly at the heat shield).

      Doesn’t fit properly

      I got it to fit on but it isn’t right. The vacuum line is touching the top of the oil fill cap pretty tightly and you have to turn the pipe just right to get it to barely fit. It’s on and it works though.
