Incredible Power Potential. This Steeda cold air intake kit will give your GT500 the greatest power gains of any CAI on the market. Combine this Cold Air Intake with a Bama tune, and immediately gain as much as 97 RWHP. Want more? Then add Steeda's supercharger pulley to the mix and see over 144 horsepower at the rear wheels.

Superior Airflow. The Steeda GT500 Cold Air Intake Kit includes the largest MAF at 114mm and the most advanced inlet elbow design, available on the market today, to ensure optimum airflow for better throttle response and more power.

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 have 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.

Application. This Steeda Cold Air Intake System is specifically designed for use on the 2007 to 2009 Shelby GT500 Mustangs equipped with the supercharged 5.4L engine. A computer re-tune is required for operation.

      Does this have an EO# and street legal in California? Will it pass smog in CA?

      • Unfortunately this Steeda Cold Air Intake is not tested or approved by the California Air Resource Board meaning it is not legal for use upon roads in the state of California.

      Will this fit an 08 gt with a whipper supercharger

      • Hello! The Steeda Cold Air Intake is only designed to fit a 07-09 GT500 with factory Supercharger.

      Is any other mods needed with this kit? Or it works with a stock engine fine?

      • With the Steeda Cold Air Intake (07-09 GT500), you will need a computer retune. This can be used as the only modification as it will include a new MAF which is 114mm as well.

          Great Bang for the buck!

          Pros: Does everything as advertised. Great hp increase with tune. Cons: The large rubber tubes that connect each end of the pieces together are bright blue. Would have been more attractive in my opinion if they had used a black color rather than blue. Overall: Very pleased.

          A recommended CAI to start your mod

          While doing my research for a good cold air intake (CAI) for my vehicle, I came across this product and subsequently purchased this Steeda CAI for my 2008 GT500. There are pros and cons with every product. Pros 1. Price – The price for this CAI is very reasonable, and competitive to other comparable CAIs on the market. 2. Fit – When installing the cold air intake, there was no customization or manipulation required other than tightening clamps and screws. Great fit and design for the application. The installation only took a few hours, but that would be because I took my time and included the removal of the existing air box. 3. Appearance – The blues and stainless steel give this CAI a very appealing appearance and brightens up the engine compartment very nicely. 4. Performance – This CAI required a tune as well, with which I purchased the Bama tuner. Prior to installation I already had an exhaust on my car. After the installation of the CAI and tuner, I noticed a substantial difference in driving performance of my car. Also, prior to installation my exhaust would crackle, which is now virtually non-existent after installation. Cons 1. Parts – a. The air tube is made out of hard plastic, which isn’t a problem. The aluminum plate for the air sensor is poorly machined, and you can see the roughness on the plate. This could have been machined much nicer, and the Steeda name could have been engraved deeper so that it stands out more. b. There is an unappealing rubber hose used within this kit, which had a yellow line on it. Some other CAIs out there have fully formed ports for all connections, which is the only reason I gave this product an overall “Good” rating. 2. Appearance – The only improvement to this products appearance, other than the parts used, would be to add something to the open visible area of the stainless steel. This is only a personal preference. Overall, I’m happy to have this CAI installed on my vehicle for the performance and overall appearance. This CAI gives you a good bang for your buck, and is recommended as one of the first steps for anyone trying to jump into modding their vehicle.

          EXCELLENT power gains!

          This in combo with the Bama tune made a HUGE difference in power. I don't know how much yet but it easily feels like the 90hp or so advertised. Also a very noticeable improvement in throttle response. That alone made this worth it. You know you are making better power in the stock GT500 when you can actually hear your supercharger whining at wide open throttle. It's a really awesome sound that gets addicting fast! OH, and my first time out with this and I SMOKED a 2012 Camaro ZL1, it doesn't get ANY better than that!!!

          Move over z06....

          Overall it is a big improvment over stock intake with custom tune. Next up is a pully swap to finish some tastefull mods,if you own a Shelby Gt500 just do it! Yes the power is unleshed with this application.

          GT500 CAI

          Go the extra and get the composite inlet tube. Very beautiful piece. Im not a mechanic and it took me about 2.5 hours to install mainly because I had to do some dremmel work for the air sensor and then try to fit it all in the proper order within the engine compartment. I tuned it the following morning and my Cobra has become a beast. Big BIG difference. This is one time where I read and reread all instructions before beginning.
