Features & Details

  • Easily Gain More Horsepower and Torque
  • Improved Throttle Response
  • Reusable Dual Cone Filter
  • Black and Blue Finish

  • Computer Tune Required
  • 90mm MAF Sensor Housing
  • 50-State CARB Certified (Requires a Steeda Tune)
  • Fits 2005-2009 GT and Bullitt Mustangs
Increases Horsepower and Torque. The biggest "bang for the buck" modification that anyone can make to their GT or Bullitt Mustang is adding a Steeda cold air intake. Steeda's uniquely designed 90mm CAI allows your pony to breathe easier which translates into a significant increase of horsepower and torque at the rear wheels.

Tune Required. The Steeda Cold Air Intake does require a computer re-tune for operation. This can be handled using any 2005-2009 Mustang handheld tuner, and the whole process takes just a few minutes. What's more, a tuner will truly unlock your Mustang's potential elsewhere.

Reusable High Flow Air Filter. The included Steeda dual cone air filter has more surface area than competitors single cone filters to allow your Pony to breath much easier for more power. And best of all the filter is reusable, just clean it, re-oil it, save money and go. 

Stainless Steel Heat Shield. Steeda knows that hot air is bad for combustion. That's why they've included a heat shield made from 304 stainless steel to reduce the intake temperature to within 5-10 degrees of the ambient air for more horsepower. This cold air unit's finished off with some sleek black and blue accents for a true race appearance.

Pre-calibrated 83mm MAF Housing. This Steeda Cold Air Intake kit includes a brand new cast aluminum 83mm MAF housing that is already calibrated for use with the factory fuel injectors. Please note that the MAF sensor is not included. 

Bolt-on Installation. The Steeda Cold Air Intake is a simple installation, requiring only basic hand tools and about an hour of your time. All the provided hardware and clamps make the job straightforward, and tuning your ride for the Steeda intake takes just a few minutes with a handheld tuner.

CARB Certified. With the use of a Steeda Custom tune, this Cold Air Intake is 50 state legal under CARB Certified EO Number D-536-4.

Application. The Steeda Cold Air Intake is specially designed to be used on the 2005-2009 GT Mustangs equipped with the 4.6L V8 engine.

Note: Coupon codes cannot be applied to this product.

Technical note: Installation of this Steeda CAI requires the use of a 2005-2009 Mustang Tuner to reprogram the cars computer for the Cold Air Intake.

    If you're going to buy some performace parts for your 05-09 Mustang GT then buy this product. Buy this with the Bama SF3/X3 Power Flash Tuner w/ 3 Free Custom Tunes (05-10 GT). You will NOT regret it, buy them both right now. The fit was a little tight and the product requires a bit of prepparing. HUGE performance gains and it sounds super sexy. Seriously, if you dont buy this... there is something wrong with you lol.

    Steeda Cold Air Intake

    This intake made a night and day difference in overall sound and performance. Originally had the AFE cold air and decide to get the steeda because of overall 38rwhp, big difference between the two money well spent. It gave me better acceleration and top end speed. Feels stronger pulling through the gears as well.

    *Steeda CAI*

    I just recently purchased the CAI package with the SCT X3 and could not be more satisfied. I put the intake on in 20 min. and tuned it in another 5 min., and felt a lot more torque, and felt huge hp gains at 3500 rpms+. I also feel real good pick-up accelerating in 3+4 gear.

    Excellent Mod

    I was deciding between this Cold Air intake or JLT but let me tell you it completely woke up my 06 GT (Auto). The custom tune once I loaded it up made a dramatic difference. Its basically one of those mods for the s197 GT that you say, "Ok this thing is beast"!!!!

    STEEDA massive CAI

    if your thinking about a CAI for your Stang this is deffinitly THE ONE! after you install this and just rev your Stang up for the first time itll be like the first time you heard it. you litterally hear the amount of air being engulphed into your filter by the slight whistle at first rev and through out shifts its insane. i think ill be replacing my new tires here soon already i just cant stay off the gas. it really does unleash the beast that true mustang drivers look for when considering mods... if your thinking it may be a little high priced believe me ITS WORTH IT! install was pretty easy although i have a little bit of mechanical experiance but still very simple. steeda did it right and absolutely utilized all the space under the hood for this CAI so if you have a TB spacer like myself just be aware it will take a lil squeezing and elbow grease. overall its awesome! go buy one and tune your pony up and smoke them tires.

    Steeda outdoes the rest

    I previously had a K&N CAI kit on my car. It was a great improvement over the factory intake tube, however fell short in several areas, mainly fit and finish quality areas. That lead to me ordering this Steeda CAI kit, and I was not disappointed. The install is very simple, just take your time, follow the instructions and you will soon be in your car, loading a new tune and rolling down the road. If you have a CAI on your car now and did not save your stock airbox, you will have fitment issues because you need to re-use to rubber isolators on the bottom. I had my car dyno tuned with this, just to wring out the most power. I am now at 314 HP and 327 TRQ at the rear wheels on 91 pump gas tune that is easy to live with on the street.

    Buy it

    Ranks next to my 4:10 ring & pinon gears in regards to performance gain. I was concerned about not having a BAMA Tuner, but my Diablo Predator tuner interfaced perfectly, Vas with Diablo provided outstanding in providing the needed support. I've gained big time hp and sound, I usually outsource most my upgrades, this one I did myself, it was so every easy my wife could have done it. Would have purchased long ago had I known the Diablo Predator would suffice for the BAMA Tuner.

    You're crazy to not purchase this.

    I installed the Steed CAI on my stock 2006 GT manual, and use a 91 octane Race Tune from Bama tuning. Everything else on the car is completely stock. This morning I had it dyno'd, and it turned out 308 rwhp, and 326 rwtq. That works out to 362 hp and 384 tq at the crank! It then ran a quarter mile time in 13.39 @ 110 mph. If that's not justification enough to spend the money on this, I'm not sure what is. American Muscle and Bama tuning are excellent to deal with. BUY THIS NOW!

    It looks and sounds awesome

    The fitment wasn't perfect and the installation instructions are really bad, I found a nice video online on how to install and with some observation and time I was able to get it right. The rubber seal doesn't fit great with the heat shield but with some tweaking you should be able to get it there. Overall is a great product, I just wish it had better instructions and a better fix. I can't wait to get my custom bama tunes to really squeeze the power out of this baby!

    Steeda is Great

    I've heard alot about CAIs and if they work and how well do they work, but this is a product I was more than happy to spend money on. For amateurs, it's a great starting point for getting to know your car. It's easy to install, instructions are nice (I found a youtube video for better clarity) and it's not too expensive. The only thing that bothered me was after install, I got a check engine light not once, not twice, but three times. I got the tuner seperately (AM bring back the Steeda/Tuner combo!) and checked and cleared it. I finally got a hold of BAMA and they had me troubleshoot things and manaully select the options in the tuner. It's been a couple weeks with no CEL. I couldn't feel or tell if the Steeda CAI actually did anything but after a week of driving I noticed I was chirping the tires more. I really think it is giving it more power and I need to be easier on the gas. Overall super satisfied and best of all, Steeda just looks really cool. Steeda/AmericanMuscle provided everything I needed. I got screws, clamps, and didn't have to reuse them off the old stock intake. I suggest using the extra attachment base provided for the CAI otherwise it sits loosely and feels unsafe. Pain to attach so bring a friend to hold stuff for you.

    Best mod for $

    This and a tune (you must have a tune) will get you the most hp for the cheapest price and should be the first thing you do. Looks great and is always clean. Noticeable dif in power, and you can actually hear it sucking air with the windows as you play with the gas.

    '08 Mustang GT CAI Steeda

    This Steeda CAI is hands down the best CAI you can get for your '05-'09 GT. Simply blows away the competition. If this is your first mod, you will definitely feel the difference between the new CAI and stock. However, a tune will be required before you can enjoy it.

    Replaced a Spectre C.A.I. with this Steeda. Right off noticed a positive performance increase. Install was very simple, and the kit came with everything required. I highly recommend this kit.
