Works as advertised
A little tough to install, but that expected from aftermarket parts. Looks great if you're going for a basic color scheme. I have had no issues with it.Helpful (0)

Great product for the price
I recently installed this on my 01 mustang GT. Definitely helped with the throttle delay. Much better throttle response. Seems like it improved low end torque a little bit, and maybe a little bit of high end horsepower, but I was expecting a huge improvement, so I’m happy with it. The black powder coated finish looks great as well.Helpful (0)

Easy install and noticed gains right away. Sounds good and I like that the filter is away from the engine and in the fender body.Helpful (1)
How much HP and TQ will I get on my 99 GT without the Bama performance tune?
around 7 to 10 HP
can this be used through winter, will it suck water into my engine in rainy weather??
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).
?Is this CA CARB compliant?
Unfortunately this cold air intake is not CARB legal.
Changing filter on SR CA Intake How do you, how hard is it, and how often do you change the filter on SR CA intake?
not hard at all, you do not change it just clean it like a K&N filter
Will this CAI work with a strut tower brace? I have the SR Performance strut tower brace on my GT. Want to know if there are any issues with install concerning the brace getting in the way.
yes it will
You would reuse the factory MAF sensor and housing.
Yes, this cold air intake is compatible with the SR 70mm throttle body and will fit perfectly together.
This intake does not require a tune to work properly on your Mustang but if you are looking for the same performance gains as we list on the page, you will need a custom tune to achieve those numbers. The 35 HP and 54 TQ gains we saw were with a 93 Bama tune.
Both are quality products and SR Performance is certainly a reputable brand. This CAI will offer up to 35 HP and 54 TQ With Optional Tune.
The SR Performance Black Cold Air Intake is designed for the round throttle body of the GT and will not fit the oval shaped throttle body of the Bullitt.
Yes, this SR Performance Black Cold Air Intake will fit properly with an aftermarket throttle body spacer.
Unfortunately, the SR Performance Black Cold Air Intake is not smog certified. This part will not come with a smog sticker.
Unfortunately the SR Performance Black Cold Air Intake does not come with a C.A.R.B Number
The SR Performance Black Cold Air Intake will work well with the Flowmaster Cold Air Intake Filter Refresh Kit. The link can be found below! https://www.americanmuscle.com/flowmaster-cold-airtake-filter-refresh-kit-7917-mustang.html
The SR Performance Black Cold Air Intake will not cause damage as it will not require a tune or trigger a check engine light.
