Review & Install Video

Hey, guys, Stephanie with americanmuscle.com here with my overview of the Roush Cold Air Intake Kit, available for the 2015 and up EcoBoost Mustang. This overview is gonna cover a few topics with the Roush kit, like what you can expect from this intake, some info about the components and the 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. Now, cold air Intake is normally one of the first mods that many Mustang owners go to. But there are a ton of different choices out there between airbox styles and filters. And the Roush intake is one of the options that are available right now that bring some of the most benefits to the table. The factory intake is actually really good. It's highly functional, and it isn't as restrictive as you might think it is. But aftermarket cold air intakes like this one function a little bit better than the factory intake in the upper RPMs and especially after some mods have been completed. The Roush does have an open airbox design. But the fact that it keeps the direct cold air feed that Ford created, where cold air from outside the car enters through the grille and feeds the air filter, means that this is one of the more true cold air intake setups, since it does receive some air from outside the engine bed. Like other aftermarket intakes for the EcoBoost, this one does not require a tune. No aftermarket intake for the EcoBoost requires a tune, because these cars are speed-density cars. Now, the requirement of a tune with aftermarket intakes comes from the size of the MAF or the mass airflow. And aftermarket intake can only go so big with the MAF size before the car's gonna need a computer tune. Now, even though this is the case with EcoBoost, I do wanna be clear with the fact that you're only going to see gains of a few horsepower without a tune. So you can expect a small bump in horsepower and torque along with improved throttle response overall. But let's look a little bit more at the intake itself. The first thing I noticed was that the filter's actually pretty large, and it's bigger than the other filters that are out there on other cold air aftermarket intakes that I've seen. This is a reusable, high-flow, dry-air filter, which is nice, because when it gets dirty, you can clean it and reinstall it and not have to worry about the oiling process. The intake also fits really nicely. And I think it looks better under the hood than the stock airbox does, for sure. Now, another cool thing here and one of the big things that I wanted to point out with this intake is the airbox. This is important, because the airbox does still keep that air feed from the grille, which, I mentioned earlier, it actually brings in air from outside of the car. Not all aftermarket intakes do this. And I like that they've tacked into that factory cold air duct, because it gives performance gains and allows for more of a true cold air setup. Looking at the price for this Intake, you can expect to pay close to the $400 mark. Now, this is on the more expensive side. But you are looking at a different housing, a larger filter, and the foam insert and the hood seal to keep the intake isolated. 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 really need then 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, and 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 our scale. All that you really need to do is remove the factory airbox. You need to disconnect the airbox 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. The Roush installs the same way as the factory airbox came out. Just put on your new couplers and clamps and slide the airbox in, starting with the air duct first. And that just goes right into the factory location. Once you have everything installed and lined up properly, you can tighten it all down, and you'll be good to go. Wrapping things up here, this intake from Roush is a good-quality option that fits and looks great and gives some performance and sound gains, has a large, reusable air filter, and the housing taps into the factory cold air duct. You can check it out more online for yourself right here at americanmuscle.com.

Increase Horsepower and Torque. The Roush Performance Mustang Cold Air Intake kit replaces your EcoBoost Mustangs restrictive factory air box and paper filter with a high flow filter assembly and intake tube for an increase of horsepower and torque while improving throttle response and fuel mileage.

No Tune Required. Unlike other Cold Air Intakes on the market for the EcoBoost Mustangs this Roush CAI does not require a computer re-tune. The engineers at Roush Performance really did their homework to improve your pony's power using the factory tune. However AmericanMuscle recommends the use of a Handheld Tuner to see even larger power gains.

Reusable High Flow Dry Filter. The included Roush High-flow Dry Air Filter provides excellent filtration of harmful particulates. It is composed of two layers of wire mesh for durability and is proven to retain its shape even under high airflow. This dry air filter is washable and does not require oiling, saving you time and money.

Straight Forward Installation. The Roush Performance Cold Air Intake Kit is designed to install easily with just basic hand tools. No extra modifications or special tools are required for proper installation. All necessary parts and instructions are included.

Application. This Roush Performance Cold Air Intake kit is specially designed to fit the 2015-2017 EcoBoost Mustang's equipped with the turbocharged 2.3L Inline 4-cylinder engine. No computer retuning required for operation.

Technical Note. This Roush Cold Air Intake is not legal for use in California or other states adopting California emission standards.

Is it recommended to change the stock exhaust for the 2.3 litre EcoBoost, as well, to relieve any additional back pressure? I just don't want to end up with any check engine lights, while my car is still on factory warranty. Let me know. Thanks!

Patrick05GT

  • Upgrading to a larger exhaust on the EcoBoos models does help a lot with these motors. However this is not a needed thing when upgrading your air intake!

When free revving it sounds as it should, but when It's under load if I let off the gas it makes some type of bop noise. It sounds as if something is getting hit and sounds like "bop" I checked several times and it was installed correctly and fit good, is that bop sound normal?

Ryan

  • The sound you are hearing when lifting off of the gas under load is the factory bypass valve venting the excess pressure from the turbo back into the cold air intake. It is completely normal.

    Good but may be I had higher expectations

    I read several reviews where everyone was raving about this mod and how it had added more hp as well as increased exhaust notes. I have a flowmaster exhaust and after adding this mod I haven't seen much increase in the sound nor increased power. Don't know if I am missing something or what, but based on other reviews this mod hasn't met my expectations.

    Roush CAI is a Premium Grade Upgrade

    I've always ordered KandN filters for my vehicles, but with this car, I have plans of making it an all out Roush Upgraded model. The first step was this Cold Air Intake, and off the bat, it's really noticeable in power, it really sucks in air to give you the power you desire. It gives you pedal feedback instantly. All in all, the best first upgrade, performance wise and appearance wise. Definitely would recommend to anyone wanting to purchase it.

    I have yet to look back after buying this CAI. I love the heightened sound my blow off valve and turbo now make and the performance gains are like the cherry on the top. It was super easy to install, even for someone like myself who's never done any work on cars ever. I definitely will be buying more Roush products.

    Great Product

    Easy to Install and use. You need to grab 3 rubber seals from your old intake in order for it sit snuggly. It is a little expensive but the its worth keeping your pony under warranty since its made by roush. I also had it dyno'd before and after and I saw about 25hp gains starting at 4k

    The Roush Cold Air Intake is a great cai. The sound difference is tremendous on it, the filter is huge compared to most others I see, and the throttle response is better handled. Great product overall

    Sounds cool.

    It was easy to install at less than an hour. It sounds really cool. I didn't notice much of a performance increase. The only problem I'm having is its inlet air temp seems too high at 20* above outside temp while driving. Other reviewers said theirs stays at 3*F above outside temp while driving.

    Foundational Upgrade

    My first mod to my Ecoboost was the flow master outlaw able back exhaust which made it sound so much better. But this mod was specifically to get that extra kick in the low RPM's. I have to say after driving around for 2 weeks, I'm still impressed at how much this adds a performance gain. A small upgrade, with incredible results. I'm running without a tuner, and i'm very satisfied. More importantly, AM was so helpful on the phone when ordering this. I wouldn't order anything else for my Mustang anywhere else.

    Great first mod for Ecoboost owners

    This was my first mod on my Ecoboost and I can say that it is well worth the price. Install took me about an hour, but I have never done any work to any car before hand. If you watch an installation video while doing it walking you through the process, you'll be fine. I would recommend having some there to help if needed. This CAI really helped bring the engine to life. With the OEM air intake, it felt slightly sluggish. It does not feel that way anymore. I'm not sure if I gained any horsepower or torque with this upgrade. But I can say that my turbo spools a lot faster now. If you are worried that this won't do much, you will definitely hear it when you start your car up. All in all, great upgrade and worth the money.

    Couldn't be happier!

    I received the Roush CAI as a Christmas gift after deciding it has the best look and sound. The installation was an absolute breeze and probably took 45 minutes. The sound this intake provides is incredible, it truly sucks in the hair and creates an entirely new sound for the car. I have a tune on my car and couldn't really tell any performance gains. But the look and sound of this intake is well worth it! Also included three sets of "Roush" lettering stickers if you wanted to put them on the intake. If you're shopping for an intake for your ecoboost, I must say this is a great product.

    2015 Roush Cold Air intake: Ecoboost

    Very Easy install with a perfect fit . The Roush intake sure did bring out that turbo noise that i was looking for and sounded a lot better than it did with the factory intake ! The instructions that were provided had easy to follow steps and had photos right along every step. Gains were not too noticable but I was satisified.
