    Improve Horsepower. Gain horsepower and torque with Steeda's cold air intake for your 2011-2014 Mustang V6. Think adding 20 ponies out of your 3.7 sounds too good to be true? These impressive numbers have been dyno-proven by Steeda with custom tuning, ensuring your Pony will also achieve significant gains with this system and 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.

    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.

    Easy Installation. Installing the Steeda Intake for your 2011-2014 V6 takes about an hour, and requires only basic tools.

    Application. This Steeda ProFlow Cold Air Intake is specifically designed for use on the 2011-2013+ V6 Mustangs, both manual or automatic transmission, with the 3.7L TiVCT V6 engine. Requires a new computer tune.

    Note: Coupon codes cannot be applied to this product.

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

    5 Top Rated Questions

    Is the tune with this CAI absolutely required or is it just recommended for gains? Just want to know before I go out and buy.

    • The Steeda Cold Air Intake requires a tune due to the resized MAF housing, Without a tune, the computer will incorrect calculate the volume of the incoming air, and will cause several issues including air/fuel ratio issues and idle issues.

    I have the bama tune installed in my car already, can I still install the steeda cold air intake? Or did I have to install the intake first than the tune?

    • You are able to install the cold air intake after having the tune installed. I would suggest contacting Bama as they will be able to write you a new tune that accommodates for this cold air intake.

      Great item

      I love this cai I tried using this without a tune and I will say that it won't work. Just using a preloaded tune I noticed a huge difference. The pull is a huge difference and the difference in the exhaust with this on just makes my exhaust sound better.

      Steeda cold air intake

      Love the cold air intake and paired it with a 93 race tuner I can definitely feel the difference is the car. It pulls a lot better and responds even better. Love the product and another the exhaust note is a little different which is a added bonus

      Great, but not perfect

      I'll lead off with saying that performance-wise this is probably the best CAI on the market. The increase in mid-upper range power is good and the bottom end of the power band seems to start slightly lower than before. Although the tune could be a major factor in that as well. I'm not convinced that this product is worth the $400 price I paid for it. Also, the fact that I had to assemble every single facet of it was a little annoying. Certain aspects felt solid and well engineered, others felt a bit cheap. Overall I am satisfied with the purchase and would probably consider making it again.

      Worth the money !

      By far one of the best intake out there for the 3.7 mustang ! If your going to buy an intake make sure it's Steeda and make sure you have a nice tune so you can feel your cars improvement. I'll tell you this intake and my tune really woke up my car I was left completely speechless the first time I gunned it !

      She's angry now!

      While stock, the V6 sounds like no one's home until 3000rpm, with this intake installed it's a totally different animal! It may be a smidge quicker but like pretty much every cai, it's not really doing much by way of power, it's sound and quite a wonderful sound!

      Only Intake Worth Your Money

      This cold air intake was recommended to me by a friend. Originally, I was just going to get a BBK or Airaid, and there is no possible way any of the other air intakes would give you the gains you were looking for compared to this one. While the Steeda intake is more expensive, you are getting more horsepower and torque per dollar than you would with a cheaper intake. I got this with a 93 octane tune from Bama, and I got on the throttle just a little bit when we took it out and instantly my Mustang was already 10 times better, and go great with my Borla ATAKs. I 100 recommend this intake just because of the fact that it requires a tune

      What a change!

      Before I get to the good parts, I do have to mention one bad issue I had with this. Putting this together would have been no problem if I had borriwed a screwdriver that wasn't broken. It lossened the screws fine when I had to redo one of the brackets that I had put on facing the wrong way accidentally, but would not lock to tighten all of the screws down. This became a bigger issue when for some reason one of the screws would not thread into the MAF housing correctly. There must have been some excess metal in the threads and it took almost a good hour until I was able to finally get the screw to tighten down to keep the MAF sensor in place. Other then that issue, and having to take the metal adaptor for the pcv tbe out and put it back in the opposite way for the hose to snap into place because the instructions really do not tell you which way it has to be installed, switchin out the stock part and bolting this on was a breeze. My girlfriend got the rubing onto the throttle body while I lined up the factory air inlet and bolted it all down in just a few minutes with no fitment issues at all. Now...for the good....Huge change in low end torque. Even with the stock 2.73 gears (changing down the road) and with the auto transmission, the car is much more eager to smoke some rubber, as well as kick the back end out a bit on a harder more agressive turn. As for the sound......paired with the borla S types....I've already had people ask me if it is a GT, or is it turbo or supercharged? Once the car gets to around 2000-4000 rpm, it sounds very much like the mid 90's cobras. Always loved hoe they sounded. Installing the tune for it was simple, now I just need to get her to the track to see how it does. Maybe a few backroads as well to see if the 0-60 time has changed a bit as well. Expect it should drop a bit. Pricey, yes, but worth it all completely!

      THE CAI to buy!

      I picked the Steeda because it requires a tune. I figure that an engine mod that doesn't require a tune isn't much of a mod. There is quite a bit of assembly required, but it wasn't bad. The whole install took about 2 hrs start to finish. With my custom Bama 93R tune, it really made a difference. When you already have a tune, a CAI doesn't add the full amount of power advertised, but I can tell that I gained some. More importantly, the power delivery is smoother. The peaks and valleys in the curve are gone, it just pushes all the way through the range. The sound is amazing. There is a nice throaty roar when the engine is under load and you can really hear it pulling in air. Like others have said, it sounds almost like you added axle-backs. For an added bonus, I appear to have picked up more than 2 MPG. My only complaints are two fitment issues. As others found, the emission tube isn't in the factory position. The hose reaches, but I had to trim my engine cover to make it work. I also found that the unit sits a tad high in the engine bay. I have to push the hood down a bit to close it...and that is without having installed the seal on top of the housing. With the seal, it is much more pronounced. Not a big deal as it seams to flush up with the hood liner just fine without the seal. The Steeda CAI is definitely more money, but it is worth it. Spend the cash and get the right part the first time.

      Looking for a CAI... This is the one you need!

      Im new to adding mods to my Mustang, but I knew starting off with a CAI would be a great way to start to add some extra hp. But I wasn't expecting the performance gain like a received from adding this amazing piece of equipment. Turning on your car right after installing it, you can hear the whistle and you can really feel and hear the power being sucked once you hit the gas pedal. Putting it on was a little tough do to the size of the CAI but I also had a Throttle body and a spacer with it as well. Recommend this to everyone!

      Steeda is the way to go

      So after debating a few months on which cold air intake I should choose and talking with a friend who has a v6 2013 mustang with the Airraid CAI, he recommended I go with Steeda. I was a skeptical on the price but bit the bullet. Assembly is a bit tricky since the instructions leave out a few good tips. In reality, this installation from start to finish should take about 2-3 hours, but it ended up taking me 4-5 hours since the seal would not stay on. I had to go buy contact cement to make it work. Once installed and tuned, you will notice gains right off the bat, and will hear this beauty at 2k rpms. It has such a loud growl and when you floor it, it roars. I am in love the sound! Can't wait to pair it with catback Borla ATAKS when I get the extra $$$.... Steeda CAI is the way to go compared to at least Air Raid!!!

      Worth the Money

      Going with Steeda, I knew their products were reputable. Bought this intake and of course paired it with a tuner. Definitely noticeable difference in Throttle Response which is a big plus from stock. Also has as a nice sound when accelerating. All in all, Great product and would recommend this Intake to anyone owning a 3.7L. Best bang for you buck in my opinion.

      Top quality!

      i had the JLT intake as it came with my X4 with BAMA tunes. it worked well. but i have to say after installing the Steeda intake there is a big difference. the fitment is very precise and thought out well. the stainless was well put together and the filter is very very big. just material wise this intake is much better than stock and the JLT intake kits. i highly recommend the Steeda kit, i feel there is a significant amount more power than jlt when compared. although the sound is slightly quieter with steeda and has a very subtle whistle sound the feel is stronger. i know its a very expensive intake, but the looks you get under the hood and the quality is unmatched for the 3.7 V6. you get what you pay for.

      made my V6 Exhaust Sound Way better

      This is the best CAI you can buy for your car the only downside is that you have to buy it with a tuner to ensure your car runs right. So look for this and an BAMA X4 in a package deal you will save some money. Buy This if you have a V6 Mustang You will love the way it sounds, i plan on getting a supercharger it this almost made it sound like i already have one. sounds great
