        When its time to clean the filter, do you have to remove/ loosen pretty much everything? Ive read some of these u have to. thanks

        • When you got to clean the filter on this Spectre Cold Air Intake, simple loosen the clamp around the intake and remove from the vehicle. Clean separately from all other components of the motor and wait for the filter to dry. Once dried, place back on the intake assembly and tighten down the clamp.

        Will this cai give the approximate gains as, say, the jlt or the bbk units? And will a tune boost performance with this product or just on the "other more expensive brands"?

        • Depending at which particular JLT and BBK units you are looking it, the approximate gains of this Spectre Performance Cold Air Intake without a tune will approximately the same (about 10hp). With a tune, this intake along with other intakes will perform at a higher efficiency.

            Sounds ok

            Just going to be honest. I have the Magnaflow Race series axle backs. They sound great in their own. With this Spectre CAI it gave it some gurgle vs just a deep straight sound. If you have the same axle backs, you know what I’m talking about. So with that I’m pleased. I really wanted more of a better sound coming from the front of the car. Which this did not give and it doesn’t make that swish sound when you rev it. It definitely changed the note of the exhaust, it breathes better, better throttle response and obviously looks good under the hood. As far as install, it’s a very tight squeeze for a 2012.

            Good but could be better.

            You get what you pay for. It functions the way it should but it uses 9 hose clamps so it looks a little tacky. The breather hose clamps you have to buy yourself.

            the heat shield fitment is a little off you gotta bend it into place but when you tap the gas you can hear it suck in the air sounds really good and gives my car better acceleration through lower rpms

            Great for the Money

            I bought because of the price and was not disappointed. The install was pretty easy with the video AM made. OEM instructions aren't the best but it's no big deal. Easy to piece together, but takes some real elbow grease to get it in place. Same with the heat shield, hard to get in place but it's a good fit. Gives the engine a deeper sound that I love. Wouldn't say much of a hp gain if any, but for sure increased throttle response.

            Cold Air Intake and Shorty Headers

            I installed this a few weeks after I installed my BBK Shorty Headers. This product was easy to install (around an hour), looks great, and definitely enhanced the sound and performance when you punch the gas.

            Cold air intake

            Overall the product is good, super easy install, takes less than an hour. All the parts fit well placement wise, one of the clamps that was delivered in the box was no good so I would have some extra on hand just to be safe. I did notice a bit of a difference after the install and am happy with the product over all. The hood won’t close properly after the install due to the think weatherstripping on the heat shield but after day two it flattened out and hood returned to being flush with the rest of the car.

            Product seems solid, although I was missing a clamp and had to reuse once from stock intake as well as sheared a few bolts during installation, which made the process much longer. Overall, I’m satisfied with the product despite the challenges.

            Wish I spent a little more on something quality

            I got this during a sale for what I figured was a pretty good deal. First, the good: I can definitely notice slightly better throttle response, when you open it up at 3.5-4k rpm it there's a noticeably deeper engine growl, and the intake whistle is pretty fun to listen to. The fit, however was pretty atrocious. Maybe I just received a defective pipe. I had already ripped out my stock intake system and had fit in the filter housing and assembled everything else when I noticed the pipe that connects between the short piece that connects to the throttle body and the filter housing was totally bent at one end. Looking at it head on was more of an oval shape than a round, flush fit - it wouldn't go into the coupling at all. I worked it for over an hour to get it to a point where it would fit in the coupling, then clamped it down and figured it would be okay - and everything was fine for about a week. About a week later I was driving down the road and came to a stop light when my car just literally died. I started it again and it started chugging then died again. When I got it to the side of the road and popped the hood I noticed that that joint had snapped off and the intake tubing was just floating around freely under the hood. After I replaced the stock system it ran perfectly again. Definitely recommend doing some research and buying quality. I guess it's possible mine was a defect, but you get what you pay for.

            Spectre intake on 2014 Mustang V6. Install took only 20 min. CAI gives the car great throttle response, great sound at mid to high RPM’s, and a nice increase in HP. Def a great improvement. I highly recommend this Mod.
