      Review & Installation Video

      Hey, guys. Today we're gonna be taking a look at and installing the PMAS Cold Air Intake for 2011 to 2014 GT Mustangs. This is the tune required PMAS intake and it's all about more airflow. It has 120-millimeter mass airflow and a velocity stack. It cost about $300 and it's easy to install, I'll call it a one out of three wrenches on the difficulty meter. Now because this is the tune required intake, we did install this intake and pair it with a tune and ran it on the dyno, so let's talk about horsepower numbers and show you the install. Our baseline run with our 2011 GT gave us numbers at 358 horsepower and 337 foot-pounds of torque. After we installed the intake and paired it with a tune, we saw numbers of 371 horsepower and 350 foot-pounds of torque. That makes for a peak gain of 13 horsepower and 13 foot-pounds of torque. We saw curve gains, too, we noticed 17 horsepower at 5400 rpm and 16 foot-pounds of torque at 5000 rpm. All right, guys, in order to install our intake, you obviously first gotta get your stock intake out of the way, and that's really pretty simple. You're looking at a couple bolts, loosen a couple clamps, remove some lines and get your mass airflow sensor out and I'll show you how to do that now. All right, so first things first. So we have a 10 mil bolt here that's holding our airbox in place, I'm just gonna back that out. Next, we're gonna pull out our mass air sensor because we are gonna transfer this over to our new intake. I'm gonna unclip it and we actually need to unbolt it out of here, so there's a little red tab on the bottom, pull your red tab out, disconnect the sensor and we're gonna back this out too. Next, we're gonna be removing these three lines right here including our sound tube, so we're just gonna pull them off, use a pair of pliers to get this clamp right here. Next, I'm gonna loosen the clamp right here at the throttle body and what I'm gonna try to do personally is I'm gonna try to remove all of this as one big piece. If I have to, I'll come back in and loosen this clamp, too, but for now I'm just gonna loosen this clamp, remove it out the throttle body and see if I can pull the intake out that way. Okay, guys. Now that we have the stock intake uninstalled, the first thing that I'm gonna do with the PMAS is I'm actually gonna install the heat shield and that's because I have a feeling the PMAS intake tube is gonna be too large to install this after, so it's gonna be the first thing I put in the car. All right. So I'm gonna pull out the second piece of this factory airbox here to make room for the PMAS shroud. All right. Next, we're ready for our shroud, PMAS gave us two body clips to clip this into place, so it's gonna sit down in here. I'm gonna line two holes up and this does flex and bend a little bit, so you guys got to work with it. So hold down here in the frame rail, I'm gonna take one of these pushpins and push it into. Then the second one is going to be up here, the next thing that we're gonna do is actually relocate our coolant reservoir tank, PMAS gives us a new bracket for it, we're gonna be moving it over to the right because the intake tube is actually so large that it won't fit with the coolant reservoir tank in the stock location. So all we're gonna do here we're not disconnecting any coolant lines, we're just disconnecting our coolant tank from the rad. We're also gonna keep our stock hardware because we will need it for our new bracket. I'm gonna set the tank here where it's not gonna move. Okay, guys, you wanna make sure that you have the bracket in the correct orientation, it's going to sit like this and move your reservoir over to the left. Sit this down here, we're gonna use our stock hardware to bolt the bracket back into place. Then we're going to shift the reservoir over to the left, you do have to muscle it a little bit, but it'll go into place. Gotta drop my hardware in. Now the hardest part about this will be getting the nut on the opposite end. Thread the nut under the bottom here. I'll come back and tighten that in a second, let me get this side on next. There we go. All right. So on the table here we have the PMAS intake right next to your stock intake and right away you can see that the PMAS is a little bit different looking than your stock intake. It's all about getting more airflow and as much airflow as possible. So what we have here is a very large intake tube that then runs down to your velocity stack which then runs in your reusable cone style filter. So going back to the intake tube here for a second, this is one of the largest if not the largest intake tube that's on the market. You, guys, can see how large this is. And if you hold it up next to your stock intake tube, it's much bigger. Then we'll go down to our velocity stack here which is also your mass airflow housing, and that is a 120-millimeter and you have no math resolution loss there. Lastly, you have your heat shield, and this is all about just keeping hot and your compartment air away from your air filter. One other thing that I will say is that this is the tune required PMAS. PMAS does offer a no tune required intake if you guys aren't ready for a tune yet. But with all that being said, let's go ahead and get this intake on the car. Now this thing comes pretty much ready to go for you. You already have your couplers on, all of your fittings are in and PMAS does give you the option of keeping your stock sound tube or deleting it. You can see this cap right here is a cap to delete the sound tube. Our Mustang here today does have the sound tube deleted on it. PMAS also gives you this plug for the firewall so that you can plug up the hole from removing the sound tube, but we're just gonna go ahead and leave this plug on the intake because our sound tube is deleted and we're gonna leave it that way. With that being said, I'm gonna move ahead to install the stock mass airflow sensor that we removed from the stock intake. So PMAS does give you hardware for this, too. Now, for the PMAS, I'm actually gonna...mostly install this here on the table, I think it might help me once I get this to the engine bay. So what I'm gonna do is I'm gonna slide my two clamps onto the massive coupler that we have. Gonna loosely slide this on to our inlet tube. I'm gonna leave all the clamps and everything loose for now, just to give me some wiggle room. I'm just loosely installing things on. So in that way once I get it in the engine bay I can change the orientation of this and I can get it set up the way I really want it to be. We're gonna start by sliding the coupler onto the throttle body first. This is a really tight fit so expect to wrestle with it for a little while. All right, guys, so I'm actually gonna backtrack and take this portion of the intake off because I don't really think that it's helping me right now. So I'm just gonna take this off, set it aside. We have an aftermarket throttle body on this car, so it makes the fit with the coupler a little bit tighter. There we go, actually gave me the leverage that I needed to get this in place. I'm gonna loosen this clamp up and get this to fit on here a little bit better. You actually wanna make sure that this is sitting as flush on the throttle body as possible. You wanna make sure that your clamp is down far too so that you don't run the risk of having this pop off. So I'm gonna leave it loose for now because you can see I might need some wiggle room with the PMAS. So we don't have our sound tube to connect because we deleted it from this car, but we are gonna connect these two. Okay. All right. So now we can get our air filter portion back on. So you guys can see I have the coupler sitting right next to the mass airflow sensor, but it's not overlapping it. Get my clamp straight and I'll tighten that down. I have to make these clamps all the way loose, so they even fit over the intake tube. All right. And then lastly, I'm gonna tighten the clamp up at the throttle body. We have one more thing that we have to do then, and that's connect our mass airflow sensor. Clips back into place and then make sure you push that red tab back in so that this locks into place. All right, guys. So that's gonna wrap up this review and install. Keep in mind that you can always check out the PMAS intake more online right here at americanmuscle.com.

      Description

      More Air For More Power. The Coyote powered S197 Mustang has the potential to make a lot more power and the first step to making that power is by getting rid of the restrictive stock intake. Your Mustangs factory air intake was manufactured to meet the basic requirements of a mass produced commuter vehicle, it wasn't designed for the demands of a high performance muscle car. It is just for this reason that PMAS engineered their Tune Required Velocity Intake to dramatically improve air flow, when compared to stock, for a significant boost in rear wheel horsepower and torque. As an added bonus you will also experience a noticeable increase in idle, throttle response and over all engine performance.

      Calibration Required. Installation of this PMAS Velocity Cold Air Intake will require the use of a Handheld Tuner to reprogram the vehicles computer (ECU) for operation. By reprogramming your Mustangs ECU you will be able to realize the full power potential that this Cold Air Intake has to offer.

      Unique Design. Designed with maximum flow as the first priority, this PMAS Velocity Air Intake was engineered with computational fluid dynamic “CFD” data for minimum restrictions. Featuring a patented mass air flow sensing system, this Cold Air Intake effectively uses a massive 120mm intake tube with no MAF resolution loss. The unique Velocity Stack inlet design maximizes airflow without turbulence for smooth, stable idle air flow which results in stock drivability.

      Reusable S&B Air Filter. The included high flow S&B Filter effectively filters out power robbing contaminants with its multi layer design. S&B Air Filters are made up of eight layers of specially treated cotton media that are mounted between two epoxy-coated wire screens. The red oil used to treat the cotton layers creates a sticky surface to capture harmful microscopic particles before they can enter your Mustang's engine. Seeing that the filter is reusable there is no need to buy a new filter every few thousand miles. You can just clean the filter, re-oil it, and reinstall - saving yourself money in the long haul.

      Straight Forward Installation. PMAS designed their Velocity Cold Air Intake kit to easily install in under an hour. Installation can be completed with just basic hand tools, no extra modifications or special tools are required. All necessary hardware and instructions are included.

      Application. This PMAS Velocity Cold Air Intake System is specifically designed to fit the 2011-2014 GT Mustangs equipped with the 5.0L Coyote V8 engine and requires re-tuning of the vehicles computer for operation.

      Technical Note. This product is not legal for use in California or any other state adopting California emission standards. Not legal for use on pollution controlled motor vehicles; intended for off road use only.

        Doesn’t fit on boss 302 intake manifold.

        If you have the Boss 302 intake, buy the JLT 2 cold air intake......the Pmas does not fit.

        IAT are at ambient. Very good heat shield.

        Huge intake, fits perfectly. Don't bother with any others buy it right the first time. Get PMAS. Recommended by very reputable tuners and from other GT owners in AZ.

        Beat 392's and 2018 1LE

        Extremely satisfied with the performance of this intake paired with the bama tune. Install was painful since the heat protector wouldn't fit right so had to improvise. the intake is massive but it'll fit. You can hear the sound of it which is not annoying and actually a nice sound. I've raced 392's and one bolt on. I easily pulled away from them and also easily beat a brand new stock 2018 SS 1LE with ease. Really good for a 5 year old coyote IMO

      5 Top Rated Questions

      Can this be used with a Boss 302 manifold install on a 2011 Mustang GT

      • The PMAS Cold Air Intake would not be compatible with the Boss intake manifold.

      Helpful (5)

      One of the customer photos is this intake going into a boss manifold. Why do you say in the answer to a question about it, that it won’t fit?

      • This intake does not work properly with the Boss intake manifold due to the change in throttle body angle. While you can physically install this, the coupler between the throttle body and cold air intake will be at such an angle as to reduce airflow and air velocity.
