Hey Justin from AmericanMuscle.com here, taking a closer look at these very budget friendly intakes from SR Performance, available in black or polished fitting all 96-04 Mustang GTs. This kit completely replaces the power robbing factory airbox in your GT with everything you see here, including a reusable high flow intake filter, heat shield, lightweight aluminum 2 piece intake shield in that polished black finish, and all the couplers and hardware needed for the install. If you didn't know, cooler, denser air results in more horsepower, so with that in mind, this intake puts the filter right in the fender well, allowing for maximum cool air, especially when paired with that heat shield, that should prevent any hot engine bay air from entering the intake. Ok so we all want to know just how much power this intake is going to make, but in order to do so we do need to grab a quick baseline run from our automatic 2000 GT behind me, and then get to work installing this SR Performance intake. Removing the stock airbox and installing the new SR Performance intake is a pretty straightforward task that should only take you about an hour using basic hand tools. Keep in mind you will need to transfer the mass air housing and sensor to the new intake, because the SR Performance intake does not come with either. Even though the SR Performance intake does not require a tune, we are going to upload one of our custom 93 octane Bama tunes, in hopes of seeing some sizeable gains with this setup. This tune is going to optimize our spark timing, perfect our air/fuel ratios, and as a result we should be looking at some drastically improved throttle response. And for our automatic here we're looking for increased shift firmness, in addition to adjustable shift points. Alright, with our intake bolted up and our tune loaded, we're going to fire up our GT one more time and see how we do. So our baseline run with our automatic 2000 GT gave us 222 horsepower, and 260 ft/lbs of torque. With our cold air intake and bama combination, we put down 249 horsepower and 295 ft/lbs of torque, making for a peak gain of 27 horsepower over our baseline numbers, and gains of 35 horsepower and 54 ft/lbs of torque throughout the curve. Not only do we pick up more horsepower and torque using this setup, but we also improved our under the hood appearance as well, so even though this intake doesn't have a big brand name attached to it, it certainly held up its end of the bargain, and delivered some nice gains for a price that's very hard to beat. So be sure to check out an SR Performance cold air intake for your 4.6 right here at AmericanMuscle.com

Quick and easy intake upgrade. Looks great in black.Helpful (0)
How much HP and TQ will I get on my 99 GT without the Bama performance tune?
around 7 to 10 HP
which throttle body which throttle body would be better? the SR Performance 70mm or 75mm throttle body?
If you plan on going forced induction then go 75mm but if not go 70mm. Too much air can cause power loss.
do i need to get the spacer? and what is the stock tb in musatng?2002gt justt wandering with oll that reading got a little confuse.....thanks in advance any advise will be apreciated.
No you don't need the spacer. I believe the stock tb is 56 mm.
Hi i have a 2000 merc grand marquis, will this fit ?
Unfortunately, we would not be able to confirm fitment of this part on a Mercury Grand Marquis; We can only guarantee fitment on Mustangs, we apologize.
I have a 97 4.6 gt. Will I gain more hp and torque by installing a larger tb to and plenum?
With a good tune, yes, but numerically you're not getting really getting more than 10+. The idea is once you install a larger throttle body and plenum, you will be opening up the airflow of your Mustang, allowing it to breath better so other performance modifications can get you that extra hp/tq you're looking for.
The Bama Tuner would be a better choice. You get 3 tunes that are custom for your car and mods. And if you go with this intake at a later date they will adjust you tune so you get the most out of it. Plug and Play Power!
The SR Performance Black Cold Air Intake is safe to use all year round as this is still tucked safely inside of the engine compartment which is secured against water (With all original body equipment installed).
Unfortunately this cold air intake is not CARB legal.
The SR Performance Upper Intake Plenum will fit your 1997 GT and yes we do ship to Canada!
This has been a on going problem with the mustangs , you can change out the I.A.C but make sure you use a Ford one, other wise your going to have to take it to your tuner and have him adjust it in the tune . There is another way with a restricted gasket that a lot of guys have had luck with also. I myself don't use this, but like I said a lot of guys have . You can find this fix online just google it .
not hard at all, you do not change it just clean it like a K&N filter
I would get the plenum and throttle body together. The upgraded throttle body with stock plenum will have some restriction. I have a cold air intake, upgraded plenum and 75mm throttle body. Its a decent upgrade ,some people believe brands make a difference, which I dont agree with. Dyno test results prove that its only one horsepower or so. I have the sr throttle body ,which installed very easily. 70mm or 75mm is fine.
yes it will
You would reuse the factory MAF sensor and housing.
We recommend replacing the throttle body gasket when swapping out your Mustangs plenum.
