      Review & Installation Video

      Hey, guys. Stephanie with 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

        Great Quality Performance. Easy Install!

        I purchased this intake for the sole purpose of hearing more growl from my engine (believe it or not), and am pleasantly surprised at the improved throttle response, appearance, ease of installation and excellent quality. I have a 2010 GT automatic with 16k miles on it. I only wanted to install minor upgrades to it keeping it mostly stock, but always seem to go beyond. This is a very easy installation that would allow you to change back to stock with your eyes closed. Only mods to my vehicle so far are 3.73 gears, Mickey Thompson 255 rears, Bama 93 oct tune and this cold air system. I definitely recommend this product! It plays well with others.

        Good Kit for the Money

        I was really pleased with how easy the kit was to install on the car. It even comes with a little foam piece to put in the hood vent if you have a 13 or 14. My biggest issue with the kit is if you have a 5.0 the kit instructs you to drill a hole in the filter's tray/housing for the "boom tube." Would've made much more sense to have the hole pre-drilled and include a plug for those who have a 4.6 instead. Overall a really nice kit, and noticed a minor improvement in mileage (about 1mpg or so) and throttle response.

        Improved drivability and responce

        I found that the installation was very simple and directions great. I have noticed a welcome throttle response increase and mpg has increased. Not sure if acceleration time has improved much but upper rpm pull seems to have increased.

        Roush Cold Air Intake

        Quick and easy installation, even for a first-timer! It took only about 30 minutes and required minimal work over simple bolts. Only recommendation I would make is having the hole for the boom tube pre-drilled or at least marked where it should be made.

        Factory look and fit

        I installed my Roush CAI on my 2013 Mustang GT with an Airaid air tube I had already installed. It took 30 to 40 minutes and the fit was perfect. The only thing I disliked was there are no places to reinstall the sound tube holder or the Mass Air Flow sensor wire holder. As far as performance goes my car was pulling 4.3 second 0 to 60 times consistently now it has dropped to 4.6 seconds. I've rechecked to make sure everything has been installed correctly and everything is buckled down as it should be yet still I have an unexplained time loss. Before I only had a KandN air filter and the Airaid air tube with stock air box. Sometimes it takes time driving 50 miles before the computer adjust to the new air flow rate, so we'll see what happens. I may pick up the lost time and more once the new 85mm throttle body gets installed. Fingers Crossed!

        Hose clamp is wrong sized

        The hose clamp provided in the parts for this intake is not long enough is 127 mm which is too small for the filter base diameter , I had to buy a 142 mm from home depot to fix this problem.

        Roush CAI

        Super easy install.. Makes a nice sound when it sucks in the air.looks great under the hood. As for power gains with out a tune a maybe 5hp definitely has a better throttle response. Worth the money all day!

      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

      • 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

      Where do you get the replacement filter if needed

      • When you are ready to replace the Roush cold air intake filter. You can purchase the replace directly from Roush. At this time we do not offer this replacement filter separately.

      I have the SCT X4 handheld tuner and planning on purchasing the Roush CAI but when I was on my tuner looking at the cai options, the Roush cai is not an option. Is there any other intake that is about the same as this one?

      • Well the reason there is no option is because a tune is not required for this CAI. Just choose another CAI that doesn't require a tune and you will be fine.

      I'm debating on purchasing this cai with the bama x4/sf4 power flash tuner as an option my only concern is will I get any hp and tq gains out of it like the jlt or the airaid Intakes?

      • This will still give you some overall power gains but not as much as the JLT or Airaid would since they are a full intake system.

      Video says 8hp/8trq, without a tune, so what would it be if you use this with a tune? I've seen some crazy intakes of similar build style with gains of 30-40hp with a tune... So what would this bring with say... 93 octane and a bama tune? If not tested, perhaps an estimation based off of similar intakes? note: i see this was asked but not really answered well. 1 answer
      hi! I see on the Roush website in the description of the product that says : "Note: Includes heat extractor foam insert for 2013-2014 model years to deflect water", if I buy the intake on your page also includes this water deflector??? thanks! 1 answer
