    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.

    I noticed some people in the reviews are saying they are losing power. Noticed decreased acceleration and lower MPG. Why is that? I'm looking to buy this as my first mod. No tune because of my warranty. Thanks

    • The Roush Cold Air Kit should not cause decreases in MPG or performance. If this is experienced, we recommend disconnecting the battery and allowing the PCM to clear the keep alive memory so that adaptive parameters are reset, and an idle air relearn will be forced.

    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!

    • 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!

    Will this still add horsepower to my ecoboost without the tune?

    • Yes, it will still add some minor performance gains without a tune. I'd say around 10-15 HP.

      What happened to My Car!!

      I Just Installed the Roush Cold Air Intake to my 2015 Mustang EcoBoost. I couldn't drive the car. It had more Power! Lost traction on the second gear , pick up speed is much higher and the noise is a big difference. I can't believe with a $400 you can have a totally new driving experience. I am very happy with this purchase and thank you AmericanMuscle for the excellent customer service!

      Roush Cold Air

      This was easy to install in my 2017 EcoBoost mustang and it looks great on the car. I like the fact that you don’t have to oil the filter when it’s time to clean. I also installed the Roush cat back exhaust. The sound of the car and the little extra take off power makes this worth the money.

      Roush Cold Air Kit (2017 EcoBoost) Installed

      After the installation the dealership admitted that there was a difference in sound but not what they expected. When I took this pony for the first drive after installation and engaged sport mode this was a different beast. The sound was aggressive, by just throttling in sport mode using the paddle shifters there is a total transformation of sound. Idling does not justify what the Roush Cold Air Kit does, you have to drive the car...........

      This cold air looks nice and performs great and it doesn’t even take that long to install and it is very easy to do so the only thing I had trouble with was releasing the clamp from The hose on the stock intake

      The Roush cool air intake was easy to install but you must be careful to remember where each connection goes. I really feel the performance seems to have increased . The cool air intake along with the Roush axle back exhaust is a great combo.

      Great first mod!

      I dont know much about working on cars but this CAI was a breeze to install. Pulled up CJponyparts youtube tutorial and followed that video step by step. Took me about 30min. As far as gains, i can feel the car pulling a little more but nothing crazy. sound is awesome when you step on the gas and you also get a more prominent blow off valve sound aswell. If your looking for upgrades, this is a good one.

      You can never be disappointed with a Roush product! This cold air intake is definitely up to par with the Roush name. It was a very easy install, it took me 45 minutes and I’m not really good with cars. You can instantly feel a difference when driving the car, it feels more alive. I would definitely reccoment this product!

      Noticeable gains but...

      You can notice the mustang gets up and goes faster and better response. If you listen to the videos the intake sounds really mean. I didn’t really notice any intense sound though. Really easy to install and it’s worth buying.
