    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.

    I just bought mine and was wandering if I need to put oil on the filter

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

      Not Bad

      Product came with no instructions, I installed it on the car, it took 1.5 hrs , because the mounting is tight to the air box. The cold air looks good on the car, I now have a check engine light on and have been trying to figure it out.

      Great CAI

      I received mine packaged extreamly well there's zero scratches and everything is in the box looks great air filter is small so going to grab a kandn but besides that its great only concern is water possibly going to modify my fender well to avoid any accidental water intake great for price and as for the plug if your car is 99-04 your going to need a 5/8" rubber plug i suggest taking the pipe down to your hardware store to find the best fit b4 install if your using this on the 96-98 GT models you do not need the plug the hole is for your intake air temp sensor install was easy

      So far so good it is direct bolt on i bought for more horsepower over my KandN witch was causing me problems with check engine light still hasnt went away but i feel like it has a bit more HP but not an insane increase but everything else is stock beside my borla but everything works as should but instalation sucks its easy compaired to most installs but there are some pains but its all worth it when its done and it gives underneath the hood a better appearance and very last thing it gave my exhaust a bit deeper sound installation was about 2 hours to get it perfect

      They're good until you drive in the rain

      They're good until you are driving in rain or drive through a bunch of water. If you do, there's nothing protecting the filter from water and water will get sucked up to into the engine, causing it to either die or cause major damage. I wish now that I would have bought a cold air intake that went underneath the hood. Having a filter like this in your fender well without any protection from rain is not the way to go, and I'm surprised they even make them this way. I wish I would have thought about this before I bought it.

      Good for the money

      Product is good for the money. Just like all the other reviews it would have been nice if it came with instructions. It seems to be built well and fitment is okay. After some muscle in the round and cursing you'll get it to work. You will need to find a plug for the hole that a lot of the other reviews mention.

      Use for dryer climates only

      I installed this one back in 2012 and now have it in the shop because it is not friendly towards standing water. If you run your stang through it you will have problems with the intake and if enough of it gets in you will have to take it to the shop. Looking for my next upgrade now.

      Installation was a Breeze.

      I bought this to replace a MAC cold air intake that was aging fast, I decided to go with this cause there are no Mod's to the engine, the filter is now inside the fender well instead of sitting in a chrome box in place of the original air box. did not notice any gains but the fitment is what matter the most and it cleaned up my engine bay. Looks awesome, may even buy the tuner to boost it a bit.

      How is it so cheap?

      This CAI is made with high quality material and includes all hardware needed for install (aside from a plug for I believe for air temp). It looks great under the hood too. No noticeable power gains until you get a tune but its a great mod for its money. I highly recommend it.
