  • Improved Throttle Response
  • Reusable Dual Cone Filter
  • Black and Blue Finish
  • Stainless Steel Heat Shield
  • Computer Tune Required
  • 90mm MAF Sensor Housing

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 for the 2005-2007 Model Years. Unfortunately for the 2008-2009 Model Years, this Cold Air Intake is not eligible for CARB Certification.

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.

          Worth it

          This was the first part I bought for my car and I've had it for a while now with a 93 tune from the bama tuner and it all came together really good for just a cold air.

          Love this intake over the stock. Ford racing exhaust and 93 octane performance tune from Bama made it all come together.

          Nice gains, trickier install than expected

          Overall I think the product is pretty nice. I've installed a few cold air intakes in the past and while they took 30 minutes at the most, but this one took the full quoted hour. The manufacturer instructions are incredibly vague and brief and I strongly recommend using the customer submitted ones available on the product page. Every other intake I've gotten has come with all necessary drill bits and this one didn't... not the end of the world but it's a polite thing to include to save some hunting in the toolbox. I also found it better to cut apart the rubber strips that line the heat shield and attach them. Getting it around the shield in one piece isn't worth the trouble of trying. I got the required tune to go with it and while it's not massive, I definitely do notice a performance gain. All in all t does its job - after all, it needs to be paired with other bolt ons for peak performance. I would recommend it, but be sure you set aside an hour or so and have a few drill bits on hand for the install.

          Awesome C.A.I.

          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.

          Steeda air intake

          Definitely worth the purchase! You can feel the torque gains off the line and you can also feel the extra HP at the higher speeds! One of the easiest ways to add extra power to your stang!

          Giddy UP!!!!!

          This CAI with a new Tune from Bama along with my Ford Racing 4.10 gears is insane! My Pony sounds wicked with this and Flowmaster Outlaws. The throttle response and HP gain is VERY noticeable. I love it! It does what it says it will do. I switched out my KandN for the Steeda and I am glad I did. This is one Killer CAI and worth every penny. Install is about an hour and very easy. Just take your time. Make sure the Throttle Body clamps are TIGHT. If you have a CAI and are looking to switch you will need the (2) rubber grommets from the bottom of the stock airbox. If you do not have them I am sure your Ford Dealer can get them for you. They are a MUST for a perfect fit with this unit. Go for it! You will be REAL glad you did. Thanks AM! You guys Rock!

          Unleash the beast

          I looked at several CAI before deciding on Steeda. The thing that struck me was how happy everyone seemed with their purchase... Not a single negative review was to be found. Now I know why.. This CAI combined with a Bama tune exceeded my wildest hopes of how my GT would perform. I find myself constantly patting my pony on the dash now saying "Easy girl... Calm down"

          Best CAI

          I got this steeda cai with the bbk 62mm throttle body and then tuned it with the bama sf4 tuner that i bought with them.....WOW my car sounds like a monster now !!! This steeda screams too with my bbk 62mm throttle body. It looks awesome too in the engine compartment. Very happy !!! Buy this cai because it is the best !!! Definitely puts out the hp that it claims too...incredible boost of power and sound !!! Even my stock exhaust is louder !!!

          No complaints.

          I installed this along with a bama performance tune and the results are ridiculous! The most noticeable difference is the throttle response improvements from the tune but you can definitely feel a pretty significant increase in power from the Cai. It also drastically changes the sound of the car. It seems louder, deeper, and you can hear it sucking in air like crazy. Install was super easy but I would recommend you look it up on YouTube if you've never I put in a cai, it'll definitely save you some time.

          Steeda 90mm Review

          The modern day "Day After Mod" would be, you guessed it, a cold air intake. It's an amazing modification that can gives very noticeable results and that is just what Steeda has done here. When you depress the throttle sharply you hear air whistle through the absurdly large 90mm filter and feel the power that has been added to your muscle car and always get compliments on the shine and size. Why did I rate the fitment as a 3/5? Well, if you notice my picture of the Grabber Orange engine bay you'll see the rubber trim is just a nightmare to get to stay in place. Also, it seems as if the plastic tunnel leading into the Throttle Body is oddly shaped for the tube and clamp. The first time I test drove it after the mod I was skeptical about this fitment so I purposely went on a very wavy road to test how tight it was. I went on the interstate afterward and immediately lost power and throttle response in 5pm traffic. I managed to get to the side to find it had detached from the throttle body. Luckily I had my handy dandy pocket knife and tightened it as hard as I could. Roadkill. I haven't had any trouble since that incident in 2012. I tell you this not to detract you from buying, but to ensure you tighten it. You'll love this product as I have. -Anthony Samuel

          Great CAI

          Bought this CAI with a SCT X4 tuner and the gains were what I was expecting out of this CAI upgrade. There were noticeable HP gains coupled with my new Flowmaster super 10 series mufflers for better exhaust flow and sound. Steeda is a great product and all parts from Steeda are specifically designed for the Ford Mustangs. I am positive if anyone buys this CAI, you won't be disappointed. Looks sharp under the hood with the stainless steel heat shield. If you can't decide which CAI to buy then I recommend this one by Steeda. Having a Steeda product means you will get great performance each and every time. This CAI needs to be assembled, so allow about 30 minutes or so to put it all together. Once assembled, install time is about 30 minutes but take your time and do it right the first time, "No Rush" then after you install everything, then your ready to tune car and that takes only about 30 minutes or less. After that, go test drive car and have fun noticing the power your Mustang now has. "Enjoy"

          I knew I wanted a CAI but wasn't sure which brand to purchase. I went with Steeda based on their reputation and the design of their intake. I am not disapointed! It works awesome and looks great!
