    Review & Installation Video

    Review & Install Video

    What's going on, guys? I'm Alex from americanmuscle.com, and today, I'm bringing you my quick review and breakdown of the SR Performance cold air intake for the year 2011 through 2014 Mustang GT. So in this video, I'm gonna talk about who this kit might appeal to, the construction and materials that went into this, the kind of power that you should be expecting to pick up, what you should expect to be spending. And then a little bit later, we're gonna take a very quick look at the installation where I'm gonna be giving this a very easy one out of three wrenches in the difficulty meter and about an hour to get this on to your Mustang. And I'll have a little bit more on that for you later. So this cold air intake kit that I have here in front of you today is going to be a perfect starter mod for any 2011 through 2014 Mustang GT owner that's looking to ditch their factory airbox, which we know is a little bit on the restrictive side, and give you a marginal bump in terms of throttle response, horsepower, and torque, all while cleaning up your engine bay with a very budget-minded kit. So first and foremost, one of the best aspects about this cold air intake kit is gonna the fact that this is not going to require a custom tune or a handheld tuner. So for the guys out there that don't necessarily wanna buy that, this is gonna be a perfect option for you. I do wanna add that if you were to pair this with a handheld tuner or a custom tune, the gains are gonna be that much better as they'll essentially be working hand-to-hand together. But you should expect to be picking up a little bit of horsepower, torque, and throttle response and, even in some instances, improve your fuel consumption. But it is really gonna depend on how you're driving your car. Now, I do wanna throw it out there as well that this kit is only gonna really throw out some single-digit gains. And, again, if you're looking to really maximize the amount of power that your Coyote can put out, it's definitely a good idea to pair this with a tuner. So this very budget-minded kit is gonna come with everything you see here [inaudible 00:01:48] table. That's gonna range from the heat shield, the intake tube, the filter, as well as the clamps, and all the necessary hardware you're gonna need to get this on to your Mustang, as well as a set of pretty detailed instructions which aren't gonna leave you high and dry when it comes time to get this installed. Now, additionally, I do wanna call out that this filter is gonna be re-washable and reusable, which is a great aspect about this in comparison to some of the other kits out there. But when it comes time, and this is a little bit on the dirty side, simply take it out of the car, give it a bath, throw it back in, and you're good to go. So taking a quick look at the construction and materials of this kit, primarily, what I'm gonna be focusing on here is gonna be the intake tube, which is gonna be manufactured out of aluminum and then finished off in a pretty trick black finish. Now, I do wanna call out there that with most if not all intake kits, no matter the car, if you're running a metal-style intake kit, it's typically not gonna yield that high of gains as when metal heats up and cools down, it's gonna contract and expand. Now, in comparison to a plastic or a roto-molded style construction, you're gonna gain a little bit higher numbers. But, it's gonna be negligible. And at the end of the day, with a 400-horsepower car, you're really not gonna notice it that much. But, again, if you were to pair either style cold air intake kit with a handheld tuner, the gains will be that much more maximized. Now, additionally, like I did say previously, the filter that's gonna come with this kit is gonna be re-washable and reusable. So once 5,000, 10,000 miles comes along or if you're just inspecting it and you see it's a little bit dirty, simply take it off or move it from the coupler in the intake tube, give it a bath, re-oil it, throw it back in, and you're good to go. So in terms of the pricing here, guys, you should expect to be spending only about 230 bucks for this kit. And in my opinion, it's definitely gonna be towards the bottom of the price range in terms of a cold air intake kit for the '11 through '14 GT. Now, this is definitely going to be a budget-friendly or a budget-minded kit for somebody out there that doesn't wanna burn a hole in their pocket, that's looking to pick up a couple horsepower, improve their throttle response as well as torque, and, again, even in some instances, improve your fuel consumption. However, with a 400-horsepower Mustang GT, it's gonna be a little bit on the tough side, not to put your foot into it, after installing a part like this, which is going to give you a little bit more horsepower. So in comparison to some of other brands out there, it's honestly gonna come down to what you're looking to spend and the look that you're after here. So most, if not all, the kits that we do have on the website are gonna be manufactured out of an ABS style plastic or a roto-molded construction, which, again, is going to yield slightly higher numbers. But, it's gonna be marginal here. With a 400-horsepower car, it's gonna be tough to pick how much horsepower you're actually getting. And, again, if you're really looking for the maximum amount of horsepower to get out of your Coyote, I would definitely suggest pairing this with a handheld tuner or a custom tune, as they're gonna work hand-in-hand together to give you the best bang for your buck. So switching gears to the installation portion of the video, just like I had said in the beginning, you're gonna be looking at a very simple one out of three wrenches in the difficulty meter and about an hour and change to get this onto your car. Now, looking ahead, some things that I'm gonna make sure to have on hand will be a full socket set, a couple screwdrivers, a torque spit, a six-pack of beer, a little bit of patience before you got this on your car. I do wanna add that this is gonna be a very quick glance at what's gonna be needed to get this installed, and a couple steps might be missing here. But SR is gonna have some incredibly detailed install instructions that will come with this kit. And you're really not looking at rocket science here. So at a quick glance, here's what you're gonna be looking at. You're gonna need to start by pulling your negative battery cable. You need to pull your rad cover and then pull your engine cover, disconnect your MAF and then all of the intake tubing, and then essentially swap it back with this unit here. Now, again, while I know it's easier said than done, and this is a very quick glance at what's necessitated here, you're really looking at a simple one out of three wrenches and about an hour and change before you're making some noise. So just to wrap things up here, some final thoughts. If you're the 2011 through 2014 Coyote owner and you're looking to get into an incredibly budget-friendly kit that's not only gonna clean up your engine bay, but give you a little bit of horsepower, torque, as well as throttle response, this is gonna be the perfect condition for you. So that's my quick review and breakdown for the SR Performance cold air intake kit fitting your 2011 through 2014 Mustang GT, available right here at americanmuscle.com.

    Improves Horsepower. This SR Performance Cold Air Intake kit completely replaces your V8 Mustangs restrictive stock air box and paper filter element with a high flow filter assembly for a noticeable increase in horsepower and acceleration while providing filtration of harmful power robbing dust particles. The SR Performance CAI improves the airflow path into your engine creating more power.

    No Tune Required. Unlike other Cold Air Intakes on the market for the 5.0L V8 Mustangs this SR Performance CAI does not require a computer re-tune. The engineers at SR Performance really did their homework to improve your pony's power using the stock tune.

    Reusable Filter. Included in this kit is a SR Performance High Flow reusable air filter. So there is no need to go out and buy a new filter every few thousand miles. Just clean the filter, re-oil it, save money, and go!

    Easy Installation. The SR Performance Cold Air Intake kit is designed to install easily with basic hand tools. No extra modifications or special tools are required for the installation. All parts and instructions are included.

    Application. This SR Performance Cold Air Intake System is specifically designed to fit the 2011-2014 5.0L V8 Mustangs and does not require re-tuning the vehicles computer for operation.

    Is it a problem that this intake gets really hot? I'm thinking about putting back the stock one.

    KervensA

    • We have not experienced any issues caused by the tubing of the SR Performance Cold Air Intake holding heat. due to the aluminum construction, this will hold more heat than the OEM intake.

    SpeedFreak

    • This SR Performance intake manifold will certainly be compatible with the BOSS 302 intake manifold, but the coupler may need to be modified in order to allow proper fitment.

      Fitment issues, you get what you pay for.

      2014 GT. Install was easy and straight forward. Feel the gains when paired with a tuner. Multiple design and fitment issues. First, the heat shield does not fully seat against the hood when closed. Also it does not utilize the tube aka snorkel like the factory air box does. Bottom of heat shield knobs do not for well either. Most likely due to it being a cheaper CAI. The major issue though is the vacuum line connector. There are 2 things wrong with it. It's a little too far for the factory hose to fit it and you really have to try to stretch it to fit it on. Second thing and more major is that the connector is not beveled as it should be, causing the vacuum hose to not properly seal onto connector. This will cause idle trouble as it did for me. You will have to modify the connector to the vacuum line (bevel the end of it) in order for it to seat correctly.

      Amazing

      First thing i noticed was the throttle response and the sound when you accelerate. The intake came in time and was boxed and shipped with no problems. Maybe just a little bit of horsepower and torque was added but you wont feel it much. Overall great product from SR performance. Takes 45-90 minutes to install if you know what youre doing.

      Poor Quality

      Getting the stock intake out was the hardest part of the install however the quality of this product is very low. The intake tube came with scratches and a hole punctured in it and the pass thru for the heat shield did not line up correctly making it difficult to tighten the clamp on the filter. I had already gotten rid of the stock intake so I left this intake on until my AirRaid got here and although it isn't the best quality I did notice small power gains in higher rpms.

      Really good product

      The intake was very easy to install with only some minor issues. The intake tube had a few scratches on it and the airbox tab that connects to the radiator was bent and had to be flattened out. But overall a good fit and a good sound. I just recently added an Borla ATAK exhaust so I don't feel I need the sound tube any longer and will be taking that out. Thank you American Muscle!!

      Sounds amazing and looks amazing. Gives the car a more mean look and being out a nice cold air intake sounds. Even racing it up to higher rpm sounds like you got a small turbo. Either way it's a definite purchase to be made

      Heat shield fitment

      The heat shield was not an easy fit for the 2014 GT. It took some mild bending and shaving to fit perfectly. Other than that, it is a great product. I could instantly tell the difference in throttle response and exhaust note. Much more throaty sound from my muffler delete. Also adds a nice and loud sucking sound when you hit the throttle. Other than the heat shield issue, it's a great product! Definitely recommend it.

      Moderate Install

      Caution, takes longer than an hour! For a non-professional anyway. As the Brits would say, very fiddly install. Some of the clamps weren't good fits and had to have a buddy help find me a different one. Fit was OK, but not great. Performance wise, haven't dyno'd but suspect very little hp gain based on seat of pants response. Already had the Bama tuner set up for race, running 93 octane which had much more noticeable affect. Probably worth the money in the long run but I wonder if staying stock and just running with a KandN would be much worse?

      Great Choice

      So I bought the SR intake and boy was I impressed at the throttle response after installation. Car seems to have a lot more get up and go for sure, more power with a tune added of course but still noticeable without. Overall, this was a great purchase for a reasonable price and great shipping as usual from AM.
