Review & Installation Video

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

Improves Horsepower. This SR Performance Cold Air Intake kit completely replaces the restrictive factory air box and paper filter element in your 1996-2004 4.6 GT Mustang with a high flow filter assembly for a noticeable increase in horsepower and throttle response all while still filtering out harmful power robbing dust particles. This Cold Air Intake pulls cooler denser air from inside the inner fender well to make more power that you can feel.

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!

Powdered Coated Finish. The SR Performance Cold Air Intake will not only improve horsepower and acceleration, but it will also improve your Mustang's under hood appearance with a stealthy matte black powder coated finish. Now you can have the best of both worlds: performance and style.

Simple Install. The SR Performance Cold Air Intake kit is relatively easy to install with only basic hand tools needed. No extra modifications are required for the installation. See the video below for a basic overview of the installation process.

Application. This SR Performance Cold Air Intake System is specifically designed to fit the 1996 to 2004 GT  Mustangs equipped with the 4.6L engine and does not require re-tuning the vehicles computer for operation. Does not fit Bullitt models.

Technical Note. The Mass Airflow Housing and Sensor are not included. This kit is designed to reuse the factory unit.

Is this Carb compliant? If not, what intakes are?

ChristopherB

  • This SR Performance Black Cold Air Intake is not CARB Compliant. Depending on the exact year of your Mustang we may have a few that are compliant, however, without knowing the year of your Mustang we would not be able to recommend one to you, we apologize.

    I can feel the difference

    Shipped in two days. Went in easily enough. Only two issues were that I had to use one of my own hoses to make it fit, and it came a little different than displayed. In the display it has it coming out of the throttle body and curving in to the panel so that the filter sits horizontally. However, the one I received had an extra 90 degree welded on, so rather than sitting horizontally, my filter is sitting vertically in my fender. Had to use a pneumatic drill on the clamp to make sure it stayed. Other than that it works great. Can feel the difference in horsepower and throttle response, especially in the higher rpms.

    Pretty Good deal

    Decent product. I don't see any major downside between this CAI and the other ones from BBk and the like. Paint does scratch easily so be careful when installing it. I had to reuse one of my old hose clamps so don't throw them away until the job is done.

    Good deal

    I chose this CAI because it has the filter in the fender, its not chrome, and the price was tough to beat. Delivery was typical for American Muscle; packaged so it didn't get damaged in shipping and fast--in other words, excellent. Installation was straight forward with the exception of some slight clearance problems with my strut tower brace. This caused a bit of adjusting and making a rubber pad to protect and quiet the spot where the intake tube and the brace contacted each other. The paint finish on the CAI looks good but is very poor quality. Even the hose clamps scratched the finish and the slightest contact with anything scratche the paint off. I'll be repainting mine with better paint or have it powder coated for looks and durability. All-in-all, I would say this is a good product.

    Stack Racing CAI

    I went with this CAI because i liked the idea of taking the air from outside the engine compartment. I had a K&N CAI on my old Mustang and perfomance wise they are definitly the same. Install was a little trickier than i thought it would be but still only took 45min. Also the air filter is smaller than i thought it would be so i will probably try to find a larger one that will still fit into the wheel well. This is an excellent product none the less and would put it on any future mustang. P.S. from 6000-6500 RPM it absolutely WAILS like a banshee.

    Decent fit, adds some oomph

    For the money, this is a great kit. Added a little more pop off the line, and the fit was pretty good. I have the IAT sensor integrated with the MAF, so I had to plug off the extra hole in the intake with a rubber grommet from a local hardware store.

    Saw a little performance increase

    Before I installed this intake I was running a consistent 14.2 in the quarter mile. After installation I was a consistent 14.07 with a best time of 13.90 in the quarter. Definitely a good bang for the buck install. But I was a little disappointed that they did not include enough hose clamps. I had to pull one off of the factory intake. Also since this is a universal intake that also fits the V6 motors I was disappointed that they did not include the plug for the intake air temperature sensor hole since the V8 does not use this. Even though the CAI did not come with some things and I had to either reuse or buy some additional parts I am still pleased with the overall quality and performance. I would recommend this to anyone, but would also bring it to their attention that you may have to make a trip to the parts store.

    Looks good.

    I installed this intake with a little finesse. Managed to scuff some paint off the pipe where it enters the fender, so be careful during install. It certainly makes a lot more noise from the front of the car than before, but I didn't notice much of a performance difference. My car is black, and I was glad to find an intake in black for an affordable price. It looks good.

    Works very well

    This intake is great especially for the price! The black looks great under my hood. Fits nice and tight with no air leaks. I had a Jlt pvc design that came with my Stang and never liked the bulky pipes that seemed to come loose often and wasnt thrilled about the mass air flow sensor being in the fender. Now the sensor is were it should be, I noticed more power over the jlt and my high and hanging idle problems are GONE!

    Good power slight fit issue

    I order my intake and I came in in just a couple of day like it said it would waited on my plenum and throttle body to arrive got it all here and installed have great power gains. I just had small issue with the intake where the IAC did not want to clear so it sits right on my oil filler neck it's not a big deal but it is a little annoying

    Works as designed

    I bought this in black and had it painted red fire to match my body color. Quality is good. Filter looks a bit cheap but for the price I am happy. Be careful if you have a later model stang with the intake air temp sensor bult into the mass air flow sensor. You will need to find something to plug the hole in the intake tube.

    Fair product

    I used this on my 96 gt. The only complaints I have , no instructions in the box, the pipe had a few scratches out of the box, and the air filter is wrong for the pipe not a foot fitment at all. Clamps could have been a little better. Overall a good product still using on my car until I make a few upgrades to my car.

    I work in a shop for a living, and installation time was around 30 minutes. Anchor studs were a little aggravating but once everything was in, the fit was perfect. Also noticed a sound difference from the engine bay! Definitely recommend this CAI.

    Good product, terrifying first run.

    Gave my car a slightly throatier sound and a bit more boost but nothing neck breaking, although this combined with a tuner surely would make that happen. I'm sure this may be obvious to many but since there are no instructions and I overlooked this small detail, it DOES matter how the nice and beefy clamps that come in the kit are positioned on the coupler that meets and connects to the throttle body. Keep the screws that tighten the clamps away from the throttle linkage/mechanism. My very first run, thankfully on a country road, the throttle got stuck at wide open throttle because of this. I tested the car in the garage before taking it out too but of course didn't do wot sitting in the garage so just beware. Very happy with this cai otherwise and great sale price!
