    Improve HP and TQ. Gain horsepower and lb-fts of torque with Steeda's cold air intake for your 2011-2014 Mustang GT. Think adding 44 ponies out of your 5.0 sounds too good to be true? These impressive numbers have been dyno-proven by Steeda with tuning, ensuring your Mustang will also achieve significant gains with this system if you also invest in a custom tune.

    Innovative Design. A result of Steeda's unique partnership with Ford, this intake keeps the factory cold air feed ducting from the front bumper and uses a stainless steel heat shield to prevent hot air from entering your engine bay. Combined with their "ProFlow" intake tube, your Mustang will keep its factory noise tube and PCV tubes for less mess in your engine bay, less noise, and less heat.

    101mm MAF Housing. This Steeda cold air intake kit now features a larger 101mm MAF housing (MAF not included). Please note that orders shipped before 7/23/2012 will contain the smaller 95mm mass air housing.

    Easy Installation. Installing the Steeda Intake for your 2011-2014 GT takes about an hour, and requires only basic tools.

    Required Upgrade. Installation of this Cold Air Intake will require the use of a Mustang Handheld Tuner to reprogram the vehicles computer (ECU) for operation.

    Application. This Steeda Cold Air Intake is designed for the 2011-2014 Mustang GT 5.0 with the 6-speed manual transmission only, requires a new computer tune. We also carry the Steeda Cold Air Intake for the 2011-2014 GT with the automatic transmission.

    Technical Note. For Mustangs with a Boss 302 Intake Manifold, Steeda offers a Cold Air Intake, part# 555-3162, that features an intake tube that was designed specifically for the Boss 302 Intake Manifold.

    How do I clean the filter? Am I supposed to clean and oil it? Will the K N cleaning kit work on this?

    • The Steeda Cold Air Intake features a dry filter and does not need to be oiled. The cleaning process can be used with the K and N cleaning kit and is as follows; spray the filter with the cleaner and let sit for 2-3 minutes, wash filter thoroughly, let filter dry for 15-30 minutes or until COMPLETELY dry, then reinstall.

      Steeda CAI on my 2011 GT/CS

      Quality product! I have no complaints. Can't say how much power it added when used with a Bama 93 octane race tune but the high end (above 4500rpm) is noticeable! Fit and appearance are top notch!

      Too many mods done at the same time to give it a fair performance review but I installed this because my tuner insisted it's the best CAI to go with my other mods. As far as appearance goes... A .

      Quick, easy, effective

      Quality parts, everything I needed for a quick upgrade from the restrictive stock intake box. Instructions were easy to follow, and took less than an hour. Put in at the same time as a DiabloSport I2 with a Bama tune for a noticeable HP gain. As always one of the 1st mods to start building especially on the coyote engines.

      Mixed feelings

      Purchased this along with BAMA X4 tuner for my 14 GT. Instructions were horrible as most people mentioned, had to youtube to see the better pictures. Fit was not perfect, and it took a lot of space. It does look good under the hood however. With the tuner I do feel some power increase, but not night and day difference. After driving around a bit, I opened the hood and noticed everything was burning to the touch, the tubes, the heat shield, even the cone filter itself.. makes me wonder if it is "cold" air intake. I felt like the stock setup kept the intake temperature cooler.. Another bad thing about it is that dusts and water tend to get in through the hood vents.. I haven't stalled yet in the rain but I'm still worried.. still working on solutions for that. I don't know if it's just me but my fuel economy also went down a lot. Overall it was alright, you pay quite a bit for some power gain, the sound, and the looks.

      2014 GT/CS

      I've been talking with James from Tuning by James, He recommended going with this CAI along with BBK long tubes and a tune written by him. I am very impressed! It looks great and really woke the car up. The only thing that I would do different is go with the catted X-pipe instead of the off-road. It's a little on the loud side.

      Impressive gains

      I bought this after already owning the SCTx4 Tuner with lifetime tunes. Install wasn't too difficult except for the weatherstrip not wanting to stay on but the manual did warn about that. With the new tune the car has really woken up. I believe the whole 400hp to the wheels with the mods I currently have. It's like a completely new car now.

      A little annoying

      It's a great product and definitely gives better performance, but a little annoying to fit. But once it's finally in and your car is tuned then you really feel the power underneath your foot.

      Nitrous Plate Says No

      Wish I couldve seen the gains from this CAI. Unfortunately it wouldnt line up correctly with my nitrous plate system installed. The lip of the black tube was exposed right behind the filter and caused massive turbulence as it sucked in air. The only way to line it up would be if I removed the factory air duct, but nah. Going back to the stock airbox because the flexible tubing allows me to line it up correctly with the nitrous plate. Cool looking product nonetheless.

      Steeda Cold Air Intake

      My primary reason for selecting the Steeda intake is I have a CDC Shaker installed. It appeared to me by looking a photos it would be fairly simple to run the duct from the Shaker into the CAI. It was pretty straight forward and the CAI looks really good. It is difficult to be specific about the performance gain. At the same time I installed the CAI I also installed BBK long tube headers and the catted BBK shorty X-pipe. (Borla S-Type axle-back) With a Bama tune all I can say is wow! It is like a different car, it is fast.

      High Quality Piece...with Power Gains

      This is a high quality piece! The installation took a bit over an hour but I took my time and didn't rush things. Do some research and you will see that the Steeda CAI consistently puts up some great numbers – typically substantially more than any other competitor. With the updated Bama tune, I noticed a substantial power increase starting at the low/mid-range and increasing throughout the upper RPMs. Feels GOOD! All the pieces supplied in the kit are of excellent quality and the billet aluminum housing (101mm) for the MAS is a work of art all by itself. This kit also retains the use of the stock front "snorkel" to take advantage of grabbing true "cold" air.

      This my my number two mandatory upgrade for any S197...

      I track the car frequently. With the Bama track tune, the car's hidden performance is uncovered. On the straights with only this upgrade (and tune at the time), the car kept pace with a 12' Boss Laguna (only on the straights that day) and forced the driver of a slower 1SS Camaro to conclude my car had an aftermarket supercharger (I did let him look under the hood where he only found the stock set-up with this intake and a JBL catch can - he was not happy). The intake is very solid and easy to install. The only better bang for your buck, and my number one mandatory upgrade on a 2011-2014 Mustang, is an upgraded suspension which must include bigger track bars, stiffer springs and adjustable shocks.

      i reeplaced a Rousch cai with this Steeda cai.this one needs more room cause the tube is bigger.there are alot of fittings. that need tightening.that the Rousch didn't have. As far as hp gained, I can't say I feel more.I have a BKK throttle body on my Boss manifold and this CAi does not hook up very well... Over all. I don't think i have gained much. So, I feel the price is too high

      Steeda Intake

      Straight forward install. Installed in 20 minutes teaching my son how to do it. Be careful not to damage the filter on install. It will slip on the ring with no problem, so take your time. Ensure all O-rings are tight but not to tight to break the tube. Overall, the CAI really allows your Mustang to breath. Also, ensure you get a tune with this CAI. Call ahead of time to get BAMA to setup your tuner files and email them to you for your tuner. Easy install and you are off to the track. Have fun
