    Hey, guys. Stephanie with AmericanMuscle.com, here with my review of the Rousch Cold Air Intake Kit available for 2015 and up Mustang V6s. The Rousch Cold Air Kit is going to be for the S550 V6 owners out there who are looking for some performance gains. A cold air intake is normally one of the first mods that many Mustang owners go to, but there are a lot of different choices out there between air box style and whether to go with a tune required intake or not. The Rousch intake is one of the options that's available out there right now that brings some of the most benefits to the table but without requiring a tune. So speaking of gains, let's break the numbers down first before getting into the intake. We already ran a baseline running out some numbers in the book, so we're going to run the car again with the Rousch installed. Now, we did pair a 93 Octane BAMA performance tune with the intake even though the intake does not require a tune, but we wanted to see the full potential that the intake has. A cold air intake by itself will only net a few horsepower at the end of the day, and we're talking single digits here, so even if an aftermarket intake does not necessarily require a tune, we always recommend a tune if you're looking for any gains or improvements from your Mustang. Our baseline run with our 2015 V6 gave us numbers of 241 horsepower and 235 foot-pounds of torque at the rear wheels. With the Rousch Intake and the 93 Octane BAMA performance tune, the car made 261 horsepower and 250 foot-pounds of torque making for a peak gain of 20 horsepower and 15 foot-pounds of torque. Now keep in mind that we did pair the intake with that tune, so a lot of these gains can definitely be attributed to that tune. And I always say this, but peak gains are nice to know, but the real thing that I look for is going to be the differences throughout the curve or in your driving RPMs which is what you're actually going to notice performance-wise when you're driving. And throughout the curve we're seeing gains of 22 horsepower in the 6400 RPM range and 19 foot-pounds of torque right in the 6400 RPM range as well. These are obviously both high end gains here, and like I just said, just keep in mind that a lot of the gains that we're seeing are due to the tune that we pair with the intake. So with this intake, we're seeing power and torque being made at the top where the factory air intake system and filter become restrictive. Without a tune, like I said before, you'll see a two to three horsepower gain, but you also have to keep in mind that the more you mod your car, the more restrictive the factory air intake becomes. Another thing to point out here is the large intake filter which I'll talk about in a minute. Let's look a little bit more at the intake itself. The first think I noticed was that the filter's actually pretty large and bigger than the other filters that I've seen for other cold air intake setups. And we definitely notice the benefits of this larger filter on the Dyno. It is a reusable, high flow, dry air filter which is nice because when it get dirty you can clean it and reinstall it and not have to worry about the re-oiling process. The intake also fits really nicely, and I think it looks better under-hood than the stock air box does for sure. Another cool thing here and one of the big things that I wanted to point out with this intake is the air box. This is important because the air box does still keep the air feed from the grill which actually brings in air from outside the car. This is both unusual and nice to see from an open element air box because it does bring in the cooler air from outside the engine compartment. I like the fact that they have tapped into that factory cold air duct because it gives performance gains and it allows for more of a true cold air setup. And like I mentioned earlier, this particular intake does not require a tune which means that you can just bolt it on and go if you want to, but if you're looking for gains and improvements in driveability, then just know that any improvements that you'll see from the intake can be greatly amplified by running a tune, just as a side none. And looking at the price for this intake I was very surprised to note that it costs under $300, especially after seeing its performance on the Dyno and seeing things like the cold air feed and the larger filter. For the install, it's nothing too difficult, and the intake will come with all of the items that you'll need including clamps, couplers, and hardware. All you'll really need to complete the install is a 10mm, a flathead for the plastic pins, and some pliers to remove the hose clamps. This is probably one of the easiest mods that you can tackle with your new Mustang and will probably take about a half hour to an hour tops. And I'm going to call it a one out of three wrenches on our scale. At the start of the install, you should disconnect the breather hoses from the inlet tube. Then just remove the 10mm bolt on the air box that holds it into the inner fender well and pull the air box completely out of the car. Loosen the clamps on the inlet tube at the throttle body and the air box, and then remove the inlet tube. Then you're going to want to remove the steel bushing and the two rubber grommets from the stock air box and retain them for the new air box. You're also going to want to remove the rubber isolator from the bottom of the stock air box tray as well. After that, you're going to want to ready your new air box by installing the rubber grommets and the isolator onto the new air box. Then install the weather stripping seal on the top of the air box. Before you install the air box into the car, just add the snorkel, and that thing just clips into place. Put the filter assembly into place and bolt it to the box using the provided hardware. Next, you're going to want to connect the air intake tube to the filter. You put your clamp on first and then just slide the filter over and tighten the clamp down. Now you're ready to get the air box into the car starting with the air duct sliding into the factory location and reinstall the factory bolt to hold it down. Install the intake tube by sliding it over the top of the air filter first and then onto the throttle body. Leave all of the clamps loose until everything is lined up and seated and then tighten down all of the clamps. Then all you have to do is reconnect the factory hoses to the inlet tube. Wrapping things up here, this intake from Rousch is a great quality option that fits and looks great and gives good performance gains when paired with a tune. It has a large reusable air filter, and the housing taps into the factory cold air duct. The intake, when paired with a tune, is certainly going to increase power and improve the driveability of the S550 V6, 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 3.7L V6 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. Power gains of 10.52 horsepower and 9.8 torque have been seen at the rear wheels.

    No Tune Required. Unlike other Cold Air Intakes on the market for the V6 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 specifically designed to fit the 2015-2017 Mustangs equipped with the 3.7L Ti-VCT V6 engine. No computer retuning required for operation.

    5 Top Rated Questions

    My 2015 mustang v6 (auto) has been having transmission issues. Specifically, getting stuck in first gear till redline (not up-shifting even with the use of paddles). The only way to prevent redline and to get out of first gear is to restart the car. This has me concerned because the car is an automatic. My local Ford dealership is blaming the issues on the Roush CAI stating that the added air is messing with the tune on my car, causing the problem. Has anyone reported this problem and is it due to the Roush CAI?

    • Thank you for your question about the Roush Cold Air Kit (15-17 V6). There are several parts to your question that may require follow up questions, but the likelihood of the Roush intake being the source of the problem is extremely unlikely. The quickest way to debunk that claim would be to reinstall your factory air box and intake. If your Mustang has a tune, you'll want to go back to your factory tune if you have no other modifications. Transmission work should be covered under factory warranty as long as your vehicle falls under qualifying parameters. When it comes to the dealership denying the warranty claim, they must be able to prove that the modification in question caused or contributed to the issue you are seeking warranty repair for. With that in mind, you may also want to seek the assistance of a different Ford Dealership if possible. Please feel free to contact us should you have any other questions.

    Will me adding a spray on coat of oil mess up my air filter? My uncle recommended I spray a light coat of the k n air filter oil.

    • The Roush Cold Air Kit comes with a dry filter. I would not recommend using oil from a recharge kit on this filter. The dry filters fibers are more tightly wound than an oiled filter to do the same work as an oiled filter without having to oil it within the cleaning process. Oiling it may prevent the proper amount of airflow from pulling through the air filter.

    I bought this CAI last year, and it is great, but I want to know how to clean it, it is dirty.

    • In order to clean the dry filter that comes with this Roush Cold Air Kit, simply remove the filter, rinse it thoroughly, and allow it to dry completely before installing it back onto your Mustang.

    How often would you have to clean the filter?

    • We would recommend checking the filter on the Roush Cold Air Kit every few thousand miles and cleaning it based on how dirty the filter is, or at least once a year. If the filter becomes dirty in less than a year due to driving conditions, we would recommend cleaning it more often.

      Roush Cold air kit for 2017 mustang V6

      This made all the difference with the sound my V6 made paired with a Borla SType touring axleback exhaust. Not sure about performance gains but paired with a tune I am sure to see some gains. Very happy with my purchase.

      Roush CAI

      I thought too much about buying this before I actuallly did. I already have the Roush axle-back, I bought it from AM and the two paired together make a beautiful sound. You can hear the cabin fill up with sound from the air intake at about 4,500 RPMS. Really a 5 out of 5 stars. Took about 15 minutes to install.

      Roush Cold Air Kit

      I have had this on my 2015 Mustang V6 for about six months now. If you install this cold air kit, the first thing you will notice is how loud it is. To me, it almost sounds like an exhaust system modification. It really gives the engine a mean sounding rumble. When at full throttle, the system is very loud. Cruising at 75 to 80 mph, the sound of the system working can be heard, but I did not find it objectionable, but I am a bit hard of hearing. Initially upon installation, my in-town gas mileage dropped about 3 mpg. I cannot explain why this happened, but it was not caused by a heavy foot on the gas pedal. After about two tanks of gas, my in-town mileage returned close to where it was prior to the install. One of the reasons I installed this unit was before the install the engine seemed to run out of power at high rpm in the upper gears due to restricted airflow. I am happy to report this modification fixes that problem. Comparing the stock air intake to the Roush unit, the Roush has a much larger air inlet. This made me wonder if the same performance increase could have been obtained by cutting off the restrictive factory inlet and replacing it with one crafted from sheet aluminum and saving a few hundred of dollars. Of course, this would not provide the great sound. Recently, I took a 650 mile trip in the car. During one section of the trip, with the cruise control set at 75 mph, the car delivered 33 mpg, which pleased me very much. For the entire trip, it averaged 30 mpg. This was a higher average than I had obtained with the factory unit by 3 mpg. Overall, I like the modification, but I think it is overpriced, as are the competition's air induction systems.

      Pretty good for long distance trips

      So I would like to start off by first saying that it does make the engine sound much better, however I think it affected my mpg both positively and negatively, positively because on long distances it tends to go a little higher than the stock CAI but I live in a city with some congestion on the streets and that will make your mpg go lower than your stock would. I think it’s fun and worth it.

      Sounds Fantastic!

      I did lots of research before purchasing this cold air intake. I went with Roush because of their previous work with Mustangs, and because of all the positive reviews on their cai. It makes the engine growl and it sounds fantastic! I've noticed that the air intake temp has been warmer but nothing dangerously hot. You should purchase this cai not to expect lower intake temps, but for a more aggressive sound and amazing look under the hood!

Faster responce at the pedal and we all like a little more noise. and best looking cold air intake most of the other brands looks like a Add on .Roush looks like it belongs. My pony now breaths better shorty headers and magnaflow x pipe and exhaust lets it pass wind faster and tune next by Christmas . Oh yea Angry Pony Likes.
