    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. And the kit comes complete with a custom high-flow ROUSH air filter with clamp, MAF tube, Airbox tray with installed EPDM foam hood seal, and the necessary Mounting hardware.

    Application. This Roush Performance Cold Air Intake is specifically designed for the 2010 to 2014 GT and Boss 302 Mustangs and does not require a new computer tune.

    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

    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. Attached below is a link to the installation guide with step-by-step details for a fast and clean install! https://www.americanmuscle.com/roush-cai-2010gt-cust-install.html

    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.

    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!

    • Yes this will come with everything that Roush includes with the intake.

    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...

      Intake

      Looks great, and makes a great sound. Very happy with this purchase. Also, very easy install. Only complaint is that I had to buy new washers because the factory washer was too small and went straight through the cutout for the bolt on the Roush air box.

      Very easy install. Throttle response is noticeably better, hopefully it will result in a few more hp/tq once I have the car dyno tuned. For the money, it's hard to beat.

      Works great with FRPP tune

      Installed the Roush Cold Air kit on 13 Track Pack Stang. Had already installed the Ford Racing tune several years ago. The Roush kit was easy to install. Toughest part was getting the filter on the air tube as it is a tight fit. A little Dawn dish detergent and slight prying to clear the lip did the trick. The new air box slipped in easily. The new cold air kit works great with the FRPP tune. Love it.

      Roush CAI for 2014 Mustang GT

      You can notice that throttle response improves immediately and engine inhales much more air. And gives you a little more HP which is not very noticeable specially on low RPMs. If you wanna keep your Mustang STOCK as much as you can AND got some more power, then install a good set of exhaust and a good tune with this CAI, then you easily can get 40 hp to the curb.

      SO easy to install

      This was my first time working on my car and I have to say, Roush went out of it's way to make it dummyproof. It took me less than an hour to install. I can't lie and say I feel gains because it must by just a 8-10 hp gain that isn't noticeable. What is noticeable is the Throttle response! so much better. I love it and for the price I'm happy
