Simple installation for anyone.
The PMAS Velocity Cold Air Intake is gonna be for the 2015 and newer S550 GT owners out there that are looking for a looking for a cold air intake velocity stack combo that's designed to really maximize air flow. This intake is also for someone that's looking to pair their intake with a tune to maximize their results. This is an open element style intake, with a separate aluminum mass air flow housing, so it's gonna give a different type of look under the hood.This intake is also a touch different than most other intakes that are out there. The install for this is a simple one. It's a one out of three wrenches on the difficulty meter, but I'll get more into that a little bit later on. We spun the car in the dyno before the intake was installed, and we saw numbers of 382 horsepower and 359 foot-pounds of torque with a stock intake and no tune. After the intake was installed, and a Bama tune uploaded, some numbers of 414 horsepower and 389 foot-pounds of torque. Makes for a peak gain of 32 horsepower and 30 foot-pounds of torque. Like usual, peak gains are great, but what are really important are the curve gains. The curve gains are the gains that you're gonna notice when you're driving. You're looking at 37 horsepower at 6,500 RPM and 41 foot-pounds of torque at 4,300 RPM.This intake is gonna come with a few pieces. You have your air filter with the velocity stack, the inlet tube, your clamps and couplers, your massive mass air flow housing, and the heat shield. It's gonna come with all the necessary hardware that you need to get the intake installed. Now due to the size of the mass air flow housing, this is a tune required intake, so just make sure you keep that in mind. So I said this for almost every cold air intake video for this gen car because it's true, but when it comes to the factory intake, it's actually not a terrible intake, but what we do tend to see is after market cold air intakes do function a little bit better than the factory intake in the upper RPMs and especially after some mods have been completed. This intake is no different, especially with its design. It's designed to be as free flowing as possible. You're looking at a 120-millimeter intake tube with no MAF resolution loss and a velocity stack inlet design. Now, this is an open element design, which means that it doesn't have a closed air box. It does have this heat shield though, which is designed to keep the hot engine compartment out of the air box, and it is sealed. Taking a look at some of the components of the intake, the air filter is a reusable oil filter. It's made from layered cotton gauze, and epoxy coated wire screens for durability and for filtration. The oil is used to treat the cotton to give it a tackiness and give it the filtration abilities that it needs. What's nice about a reusable filter is you can clean the filter when it's dirty, and reinstall it, and not have to worry about having to purchase a new filter every time. When it comes to the intake tube, this one does look a little bit different than you'd see with other intakes. This intake is about maximizing air flow, and you can see that the inlet tube is more of a triangle shape than anything else. Looking at the price for this intake, you can expect to pay close to the $300 mark. Now, like I said, this intake does have some features that other after market cold air intakes don't offer, like the separate mass air flow housing and the velocity stack, so I expected this intake to be priced a little bit differently than the competition. But as it turns out, this is one of the most affordable cold air intake options. Like I mentioned earlier, just keep in mind that you will need a tune to this intake. As for the install, it's nothing too difficult, and like I mentioned earlier, the intake will come with all of the items that you need to complete the install. All that you need to complete the install is a few basic hand tools. This is one of the easiest mods that you can tackle with your new Mustang. It will take about a half hour or an hour tops. I'm gonna call it a one out of three wrenches on the difficulty meter. All that you're gonna need to do is remove the factory air box. You need to disconnect the air box from the inner fender and remove the inlet tube from the air filter and the throttle body. We're just talking about a few bolts and clamps to get this done. This intake installs nearly the same way that the factory air box came out. So the install is pretty much the same as installing a factory intake. You just put on your new couplers and clamps, and slide the air filter and shroud into place, and tighten everything down. That's gonna wrap things up for the PMAS Velocity Cold Air Intake for the 2015 and newer GT Mustang. As always, you can check it out more online for yourself right here at americanmuscle.com.

Great add on!
I’m a first time buyer and doing mods on my car was very un easy for me. I followed the instructions which were clear and easy! AM did great in helping me tune my car! It did take 2 tries but they got it! Fast responses and feedback! The added power is very noticeable and the car loves the upgrade!Helpful (0)

great intake - the biggest and baddest
I got this intake because it is the largest you can buy. And more air = more power. Moving the coolant reservoir over an inch with the supplied bracket was simple. Of course during idle IATs are hotter than a closed system (covered filter element) but that is a sacrifice you make when getting the largest intake size. It gives the engine a mean growl and it in first gear it will snap your head back. My only complaint is that I have to keep the car in sport mode for it to run great. In economy mode it seems a bit bogged down. I'm running a 91 octane bama race tune. Could be cause I'm running the race tune. I think the non-tune pmas has a larger filter than the tune one from pictures but I could be wrong.Helpful (1)

Good CAI, got it for the larger inlet tube. Paired with a gt350 intake mani got some good results. Fitment wasn’t perfect, have the Cervini ram air hood and it bumps the inlet tube by the elbow when closing.Helpful (0)

Will this cold air intake fit in a 2018 Mustang GT?
The PMAS Velocity Cold Air Intake is designed to fit a 15-17 Mustang GT and will not fit a 2018 Mustang GT.
Does the SCT X4 have a tune for this intake?
Yes, the SCT X4 will be able to tune for the PMAS Velocity Cold Air Intake.
Will this work with the boss 302 manifold?
The PMAS Velocity Cold Air Intake is designed around the throttle body exit on the GT intake, and would not work well with the Boss intake due to the unique design of this CAI, and the revised throttle body height and angle on the Boss intake.
Two questions really. Will I have to set the vehicle back to its factory tune prior to it's state inspection each year in order to pass? Secondly, do you know if this CAI is legal in Texas. Thanks.
The PMAS Velocity Cold Air Intake will pass emissions in most states, however since regulations vary wildly, you should consult with a local emissions inspector to verify the legality in your area. Your vehicle should not need to be returned to a stock tune for emissions testing unless your tuner deletes any emissions functionality, which most do not.
I have a BAMA SX4 tuner paired to my 2015 GT. If I purchase this CAI do I get a BAMA tune to go with it?
Hey! If you have the BAMA X4 and you get the PMAS then all you have to do is contact into BAMA and they will write you a new tune and send it to you in a downloadable link through email to adjust for the new system!
A calibrated MAF would not be required with thePMAS Velocity Cold Air Intake, just a custom tune. Without any additional modifications installed on your car an upgraded throttle body would not be suggested. Please contact us directly and we'd be happy to assist you in getting the best parts for your build! Our contact information can be found here: https://www.extremeterrain.com/contact.html.
The battery does not have to be disconnected before installation.
You can expect 32 horsepower and 30 foot-pounds of torque, however, this can vary based on how aggressive of a tune you are running.
A tune would be included with a custom tuner.
The difference in sizing will be in the MAF sensor housing, which is the aluminum section immediately after the filter. Unfortunately at this time we do not have reliable measurements for the MAF size that correlates to each p/n.
Honestly, the coupler that comes with this kit would probably work still, they are really resilient. Just drop that coupler it really hot water (not boiling, but definitely very hot) and let it sit for about 5-10 minutes. That should allow that rubber to become malleable enough and much more easily fit over a particularly wide setup. Then, once it cools off it will seal itself up. Just make sure not to burn yourself when handling the coupler between the hot water and installation!
Yes, this cold air intake will work great when paired with the Bama Rev-X tuner.
The PMAS Velocity Cold Air Intake makes for a peak gain of 32 horsepower and 30 foot-pounds of torque but will vary depending on your exact application.
