    Hey everyone I’m Justin with AmericanMuscle.com and I’m taking a look at this polished aluminum cold air intake kit for all 99-04 V6 Mustangs. We’re going to show you what kind of horsepower and torque numbers you can expect, when using this very budget friendly intake. This kit replaces your somewhat restrictive factory airbox with everything you see here, including the washable high flow filter, polished aluminum intake tube, heat shield, and all necessary hardware. Besides giving you a nice boost in power and sound, this kit is sure to give you a nice visual improvement under the hood as well, thanks to that polished aluminum finish. Cooler, denser air results in more horsepower, that’s a fact. With that in mind this kit puts your filter right in your fender well, giving you maximum cool air, especially when combined with the supplied heat shield. We want to see what kind of improvements this kit is going to make on our 2000 V6 back there, but before we go bolting everything up we want to get a baseline number down first, to see what we’re working with. Our automatic V6 put down a less than exciting 146 horsepower, and 170 ft/lbs of torque, in stock form, now we’re going to install our polished cold air intake system, which should only take about an hour, thanks to the fact that this kit includes all hardware needed for install. The only exception is for you folks out there whose car isn’t equipped with an air temperature sensor, located right here. If you’re one of those few, don’t worry, simply go to your local hardware store, pick up a rubber plug that shouldn’t cost you more than a buck or two, and plug the hole, problem solved. In addition to installing our cold air intake, we’re also going to upload our custom 93 octane Bama tune, and maximize our gains. This is going to optimize our spark timing, perfect those air/fuel ratios, and give you drastically improved throttle response. Alright, so now the moment of truth, with our intake installed and our Bama tune uploaded, let’s turn the rollers one more time and see the improvements this intake made on our V6. The numbers are in and we’re very happy with the results. Our polished cold air intake equipped V6 put down a total of 164 horsepower, and 194 ft/lbs of torque, making for an impressive peak gain of 18 horsepower over our baseline numbers. We were also able to pick up some very nice power throughout the curve as well, making 19 horsepower, and 27 ft/lbs of torque respectively. Not only do we pick up more horsepower and torque with this intake, but we improved our under the hood appearance and added a nice little growl to the motor as well. So even though this intake doesn’t have a big brand name stamped all over it, it certainly held up its end of the bargain and made some solid gains.

    Improves Horsepower. This SR Performance Cold Air Intake kit completely replaces the stock air box and restrictive paper filter element in your 1999-2004 3.8L & 3.9L V6 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. This kit includes a high flow reusable air filter, so there's 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.

    Really worth the money? Got a 3.8V6 is this worth buying for the price, or should i just save up the little extra money and get another one? Whats your suggestions?

    iSayWhtSheFeels

    • I believe it's well worth it if you buy the tuner, too. I bought this CAI, tuner and new NGK plugs. Along with an Amsoil oil change and W O W, what a difference. I run on a limited budget, and I know this was a good choice.

    How safe it is to drive a cold air intake on a rain??? Bought this product just have a doubt about when driving on a rainy day water might go to the engine?

    Dtwilight

    • These are safe, use the K&N spray to apply a light coat any fine mist entering your intake is harmless, cars are faster on rainy days, the air is denser Keep your filter clean, and use the spray, your as safe as stock, and will as mentioned run better Perkins

    Start up and idle hiss....? On my install, this CAI puts out a loud hissing sound that varies with the A/C compressor cycling. When under load, it sounds mean, but at idle it sounds loud and unnatural. Any suggestions?

    Apheus

    • The hissing noise is due to the increase air demand/flow during that initial start up and especially with the added load of an A/C compressor. It in completely normal and as you said, sounds kinda mean.

    Will the CAI work with my 04, 3.9L 40th Anniversary Eddition, and will it hurt not using a tuner? This is my first ever Mustang. I feel it lacks the inital power it should of already came with. I regularly preform my P/M as scheduled. Will this work for my model 3.9L 40th V6. I noticed in the instalation box it only lists up to 03 instal directions. And if it needs a tune, which tuner should I buy? I'm new at the preformance aspect, but am no rookie to mechanics.

    RaceTar

    • This will definitely work on your 3.9L and does not require a tune. Getting a tune will definitely help your Mustang get the full power out of the CAI, but it is not required!

    In the second picture under the air filter where does that metal band go?

    Dan

    • That goes right behind the filter, connecting the filter to the tube.

      JeffAM

    Since the filter sits right inside the fender well will water get inside and damage my engine or give me hydro lock?

    Hector

    • The SR Performance Cold Air Intake (99-04 V6) will be in no harm unless submerged under water. If the intake is subjected to taking on water being submerged this will damage your Motor.

      Worth the price

      The intake came with all of the required hardware in the package, which made things easy for sure. However, when I began to install it was a tight squeeze. But with enough elbow grease and swearing, the intake fits and wors like a charm. There is not much noticeable gain of torque or horsepower without a custom tuning, but it did make my car have a deeper growl and added a slight whistle.

      I love it but...

      The process of installing it took 3 people and around 2 1/2 hours to install it. First the rubber boots wouldn't fit so we had to heat them up then we finally got them on and then we had to find something to plug the sensor whole since my 3.9L V6 2004 Mustang doesn't have the sensor and we actually installed a plug looking thing that came in the kit. All in all I like it but it was a little hard to install.

      more air more power

      runs for 80.00 bucks which is a good deal. looks good under my hood and improved my gas mileage and throttle response by a little bit. the install was easy enough i did struggle with the rubber fitting that goes around the throttle body. the stainless still look beats the plastic look hands down

      Not as great as I thought

      This took far longer than I thought it would take to install. It should be an easily install though, but the parts didn't even fit the car. I have a stock V6 engine and throttle body, I didn't end up using the 3" pipe they gave, and the rubber hose connecting the intake pipe to the throttle body was near impossible to install without stretching it on a vice. The supplied rubber hose didn't even fit in the engine block that the stock intake goes into so I had to use a gas hose and make it work. They do not give you a rubber stopper to block that rubber hole if you have no connector to it (which most people will probably not have as well). Worst of all, there were absolutely NO INSTRUCTIONS, aside from a shoddy install pdf on this site and some youtube videos which skipped half the details, it's pretty much a figure it out as you mess up ordeal. The intake pictured is actually a cylinder, not a conical shape as shown so it didn't fit right unless I put it through the fender guard. Performance and sound is different, but beyond a nightmare to install.

      sr cold air intake

      i would buy a different brand in the future i had to make modify just to install. the boot going to throttle body was to small, and the pipe from throttle body had to be bent in order to clear shock tower, and pipe going to filter had to be cut in order to attach air filter, other wise filter was hitting fender

      Overall it sounds and look great. It has a high pitch whistle sound when ever the car accelerate. This is the only mod I have on my 01 mustang v6 so it didn’t give it the whole 19hp gain but but I could tell a slight difference.

      Awesome Product!!!

      It fits the 2002 Ford mustang v6 engine. It looks like a jet engine with the cold air intake installed. I did notice a difference in horsepower when I installed in and also the noise is awesome. Definitely worth it. And when installing make sure to put the small rubber cupling on the throttle body and the big rubber cupling near the mass air flow sensor. In the instructions it says to put the big one on the throttle body and the small one near the mass air flow sensor but that is wrong. It is the opposite as I said before to where the small rubber cupling goes on the throttle body and the big one goes near the mass airflow sensor. And it will fit. Look at the pictures to help you install it. That is what I had did and it was a success.
