Bama Performance Tunes AmericanMuscle's 2015 Mustang GT with JLT Cold Air Intake!






The team over at Bama Performance has been hard at work on our Competition Orange 2015 Mustang GT and we're excited to announce what they we're able to put down on our Dynojet 224xLC!


While our stock 2015 Mustang GT was able produce an impressive 381 RWHP and 359 RWTQ baseline with 93 octane in the tank but the Tuning Specialists at Bama Performance weren't too satisfied and with some subtle parameter adjustment they produced 402 RWHP and 382 RWTQ!





With the arrival of The New 2015 Mustang means New Mustang Parts and we couldn't resist lending the guys at Bama JLT's New Cold Air Intake to see how much more horsepower they could unleash from our Coyote! While some of the technology from the 2011-2014 is similar JLT needed to design a new intake from the ground up to ensure it would not only be able to provide the maximum amount of air flow but to keep internal temperatures down.

Utilizing 110mm tubing with a 5" Inlet coupled with a fully Roto Molded Heat Shield, JLT's Intake comes with a fresh air duct that leads right to the grille that's purposely designed to keep inlet air temperatures as cool as possible. JLT went with a 5x8" S&B Filter with a built in screen to guarantee a straightened airflow path as well. One of the coolest features in our opinion is the fact that they had this designed to be used in conjunction with an aftermarket throttle body!


In synopsis Bama Performance was able to yield some impressive curve gains of 27RWHP and 42RWTQ and they're eager to get back on the dyno with a few more modifications!

93 Octane Stock RWHP/RWTQ: 381/359

93 Octane Bama Tuned RWHP/RWTQ: 402/382

93 Bama Tune w/JLT Intake RWHP/RWTQ: 412/382


We spoke with Bama in regards to the similarities and differences of how the 2015 is tuned and found that due to the charge motion delete valves there are 12 additional spark and torque tables as well as the vehicle relying more on toque calculations than previous generations. Rest assured we're definitively not done working with Bama to further develop our 2015 Mustang fleet and I'll be making updates as they come in soStay Tuned and for all things Mustang, keep it here at AmericanMuscle!

The best cold air intake for 2015 comes on your car stock. The inlet tube from the scoop on the front is huge and the airbox under the filter is huge and the lid makes sure no warm air from the engine compartment can enter the air box. Ask for temperature graphs. We did the testing engine compartment air with an open filter is exposed to 50 degrees hotter air than ambient that is not a cold air intake.

But aftermarket CAI allow more airflow. And some incorporate the inlet tube AND a closed air box, like Airaid's kit for the 15. Also, there are RWHP gains from adding these aftermarket CAI over stock...so you can't argue with number.

Sure you can. Were you there when they did the test? Did you monitor intake temperatures? Did they have the hood open. I call BS on a lot of the manufacturer testing.

Check this thing out. And this attaches to the right side of the grill right of the last fang and it is sealed off from the rest of the radiator

Yes you can. What part of that RWHP gain was from the tune? Do you see the same performance on the road with the hood closed.........where you drive your car?

No sorry. It is a pretty big filter the folds are really deep so there is a lot of surface area. But I would expect that a freer flowing filter might be made and that would be the only thing that could make this airbox better. See all those bars running up the sides. I suspect that they do more than make the box stronger and quieter. I'd love to hear from the designer but they probably help direct the air up into the filter. A lot of engineering went into that airbox. that said I removed the Helmholtz generator that was attached to it. I doubt it will make and difference except to make the air box a bit more noisy.

Mr. Skeptical over here haha well I understand your point, and agree with the logic, you don't really know if you'll see those gains on the road. But they're gains non-the-less. There are other qualities these have that people like, such as under hood appearance and change in exhaust note. No, I don't think the open filter designed ones (such as JLT) are truly a "CAI" but, With the proper design I do think after market can definitely make a better intake than Ford puts on the car. As with pretty much every other part on the vehicle. Also, if these open filter designs were really not any better than the closed air box, why does ford put them standard on the GT500? Why not have those come with a closed air box?

Bet Ford won't use an open air filter ever again. The day of the open filter are over.

this CAI is the one I referenced in my first post. So In your opinion, You think this WONT give better HP (w/tune) than the factory air box (w/tune)? I would heavily disagree

If the Airaid is what you were referring to I take it back as it is the only after market cold air kit I have seen. The rest are hot air intakes.
