Review & Installation Video

Review & Install Video

Hey, guys. Stephanie with americanmusle.com here with my overview and an install of the Roush Cold Air Intake available for the 2010 to 2014 GT Mustang. This overview is gonna cover a few topics with the Roush Intake like what you can expect from this intake, some info about the components of construction, and some info about the install. The install for this is a simple one. It's a one out of three wrenches on the scale but I'll get more into that a little later on. The Roush Cold Air Intake is going to be for the S197 GT owners out there that are looking for a cold air intake that is budget friendly and that does not require a tune. Aftermarket cold air intakes are a popular mod but there are a few different choices out there between air box styles and filters. The Roush here is an open element style intake but it does have this housing, which does have a foam hood seal to seal off the air filter. The Roush is gonna come with a few pieces. You have your air filter, your MAF tube, clamps, and your air box tray with the already installed foam hood seal that I just pointed out. It's gonna come with all the necessary hardware that you need to get this intake installed. Now, this is a no-tune required intake, which means that you can just bolt this thing on and go if you want to. As far as the factory intake goes, it's actually not terrible performance-wise. It's highly functional and it isn't as restrictive as you might think but what we tend to see is that aftermarket cold air intakes tend to function a little bit better than the factory intake in the upper RPMs and especially after some mods have been completed. The Roush here is one of the more basic designs since it is an open element filter but it does have that foam seal, a good size filter, and a tray which is gonna help it performance-wise. It doesn't have a closed air box so if you're looking for that, then you have to check out some of the other options on the site. Like I said, this intake does not require a tune so it's one of those intake options that you can just bolt on and go if you want to. Normally, an aftermarket intake would require a tune if the MAF housing size is much larger than the factory one. So, a computer tune would be required to recalibrate but in this case, it's not needed because the MAF tube that comes with this intake isn't large enough to require a tune. I will say, though, to keep in mind that you're only gonna see gains of a few horsepower if you end up not pairing the intake with a tune. Taking a look at some of the components of the intake...the air filter is a reusable oiled filter. It's a high-flow filter which is gonna help it outperform the stock paper filter and new oil is used to treat the filter materials to give it a tackiness and give it the filtration abilities that it needs. What's nice about the reusable filter is that you can clean the filter when it's dirty and reinstall and not have to worry about having to purchasing a new filter every time. When it comes to the construction of the other components here, you're looking at a thermoplastic, which is gonna give structural stability and durability to the intake. Now, I will say that I personally think this intake looks better under the hood than your stock intake does. But if you're looking for a show car shine, there are some other options that might look a little better or be flashier than this one right here. Looking at the price for this intake, you can expect to pay close to the $200 mark for the intake. If we compare that to some of the other options, this is less expensive than some of those flashier cold air intakes that I just mentioned. It's one of the more budget friendly options that are available but I always suggest to check out some of the other options while you're looking around. 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. It'll take about a half hour or an hour, tops, and I'm going to call it a one out of three wrenches on the scale. All you really need to complete the install is a few basic hand tools. This is probably one of the easiest mods that you can tackle with your new Mustang. All that you really 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 disconnect your MAF as well. The entire MAF sensor wiring harness will come out and you're going to reuse that with your new setup. The Roush installs nearly the same way that the factory air box came out but you need to build it up before you install it. The MAF sensor transfers over, the filter goes onto the MAF tube and the air filter assembly will bolt up to the air box itself. After that, you can attach the assembly to the car and the air box is going to install pretty much the same way as installing a factory intake. Wrapping things up here. This intake from Roush does not require a tune, has a reusable filter that's easy to clean and reinstall when the time comes, it comes with the necessary hardware and it's easy to install. This intake is also gonna look better under the hood than the factory air box and you can check it out more for yourself online right here at americanmuscle.com.

Increase Horsepower and Torque. The Roush Performance Mustang Cold Air Intake kit replaces your stock GT or Boss 302 Mustang restrictive factory air box and paper filter with a high flow filter assembly and intake tube for an increase of 8 horsepower and 8 ft-lbs of torque at the rear wheels while improving throttle response and fuel mileage.

Superior Quality. Roush manufactures the airbox tray and tube in this CAI kit from high quality thermoplastic materials for superior structural stability, and durability.

How will having The Vented Stock 13' Hood affect an Open style Cold air INtake, vs a Stock Covered Airbox in the RAIN? I am looking at a CAI for my 13 GT. However, my concern is water getting into the CAI thru the Vents in the stock hood in the rain. Is this a concern? I am looking at a CAI as my first simple mod, but am concerned about the rain/water issue. Any light that can be shed would be great. Also, are certain style of CAI better for this situation? Thanks

KingThrasher

  • While you are moving it shouldn't get wet at all. While sitting still it will still be minimal... unless the flood gates if heaven open!! A small amount of water won't hurt ant way. Think methanol.injection. However, if it's still a concern for you there are companies that sell inserts for the vents that will keep water out

HOW DO YOU ATTACH THE AIR HOSE TO THE AIRBOX? THE FACTORY BOX HAS A FLANGE THAT THE AIR TUBE SLIPS ON.

  • The Roush Cold Air Intake will slide into the factory inlet tube and will be secured by the worm-gear clamp on the factory tube.

    Haven't really noticed anything

    I'm all about roush but not this product. Installation was fast and easy. I would expect this product to be cheaper seeing how you use the majority of the stock parts. Had to drill a couple of holes to make the wiring wrap around and look neater. Haven't noticed any gains except maybe 1-2 mpg. Maybe after a tune which will be done soon.

    • Response from AmericanMuscle

      Sorry to hear that you haven't felt much of a gain after installing this Roush CAI. For most bolt on gains between 8-12 hp, some people can't feel the actual power increase even though it is there. Once you get the tune that it seems you plan to, you will definitely feel the power increase due to getting gains throughout a larger portion of your power band.

    Simple cold air upgrade

    Did the install in the middle of the night after a late delivery took about 30 minutes by flashlight. Good fit, Good look. You can hear the pull of the air through the intake when you open the throttle. Improved gas mileage 2-3 around town. BIG FIX no more stalling when letting up off the clutch from a dead start. No need to throttle from a dead stop is nice that is probably where the improved gas mileage comes from. EASY install. Good fit, and NO PROGRAMMING NEEDED.

    Awesome

    Just installed this intake, installation was a breeze, everything fit just right and the instructions were very clear. I added the Bama tune to go along with the intake and everything came to life just right and the performance is right where I expected it to be. Also, I HATED how my car would bog under normal driving conditions when rolling from a stop. The tune and intake literally made this problem disappear.

Horsepower gains weren't that big but throttle response had a huge increase no more drop out when I dump the clutch. It just goes now. Amazing product easy to bolt up took about 45 minutes to install. I through a little paint on it and it looks great

    This product was extremely easy to install. Do yourself a favor and watch the video though. I watched it twice and didn't even take out the instructions and was done in a little over 30 minutes. As far as the performance goes I haven't road tested yet but it has got to be better than stock. Thanks AM for the great product and shipping!

    Great product, easy install

    Great product, took about 40 minutes to install. Only problem was a bit of confusion about where the MAF harness installs. Instructions said reinstall in holes on filter box and there aren't any. But clips before and after harness hold it securely so no real problem. Notice slight improvement in performance, a little peppier, Overall very happy with product.

    MPG friendly

    I've had this product on my '10 GT for 1 1/2 years. This is amazing with a tune, at 55 MPH with 3.73's in the rear end i get about 26+ MPG. Instant and very noticeable feel in power all the way through the RPM's. I've just now cleaned it out with cleaner and some red die and it still looks brand new. Only word of caution be very careful pushing it on cause its very easy to bend the wire mesh.

    Sounds Great

    As everyone else said it is a very easy installation the longest part of the installation is getting the old air box out of there. The engine bay looks great now and what no one has mentioned yet is that it makes the engine and exhaust sound a lot better.

    Great styling, quality product - Roush FTW!

    I installed this on my 2011 GT. Install took about 10 minutes. Looks great under the hood, and I love the "whoosh" sound it makes. As far as performance, I haven't had the car dynoed but it doesn't feel like I really gained anything (I didn't expect to gain any power though so this isn't a bad thing). Overall, if you want a no-tune intake, this is a good investment. Looks, sounds, and fits great!

    easy to install, like decongesting the stang.

    I got this intake from Roush and it was beyond simple to install. I have a auto tool set and installed this in maybe 20 mins following the video directions straight from Roush. They are In a slightly different order than the instructions that come with the part and made it easier. I noticed improvements immediately. The car is much louder, more responsive and seems to not choke out anywhere near what it did with the stock intake. The part is not really bright pink like it shows in the picture but a dark pinkish red, which looks great with my red car. As for gas mileage I am not sure yet, have to wait a few more weeks before I can safetly say it improves that aswell.

    good so far

    The Roush cold air intake is peforming pretty good so far. The only negative i have on this product is that it does'nt mate up with the rest of the intake very well like the stock air box does, if it did there would be a better seal.

    dissapointed in design

    I ordered this product, ended up returning it. The stock one fits into the front air inlet, where this one, just has an open hole that mounts flush to it, leaving too much to be desired as to way they didnt manufacturer it like the stock inlet connection, or even other aftermarket CAI. Just wasnt happy with the layout of it. Directions fail to mention anything about it either, nor the wiring. Although its easier to install, takes 10 min.

    Excellent "under hood" add on.

    Along with a single pass Borla Muffler, the Roush cold air intake gave the slightly "peppier" low end performance it claims it will. It looks great under the hood too. Easy and fun installation. Great product. Very happy I bought it.
