cold air intake

  1. 2015+ 5.0 Mustang Talk
    Hey y'all. I just got a 2017 GT Premium, and I'm wondering what performance mods WON'T void any warranties. Do exhaust and cold air intake, for example, have to be a certain brand (Like Roush or Ford Racing?) I am brand new here, so please forgive me if this is posted elsewhere! :wink:

    So I just bought a 88' LX with a 2.3 4 cylinder engine. I get a lot of crap about it being crap and to swap or jun it and find a 5.0, but it's my baby and project car. I don't have money for a proper turbo setup, engine swap and there are no 5.0s around my area. So I'm trying to find ways to...

    Today I installed a SR performance CAI. when i started it up for the first time (2004 v6 with no other mod) she not only was leaking something (from behind the catbacks in the exhaust) that i thought was just water (but a lot), she also was heating up very quickly(the engine meter was almost at...

    Hello all! I am the owner of a 2007 v6 mustang. I have a Question! I really love the BBK cold air intake and wanting to buy it. Is there any real benefits with the v6 stang? I don't want to buy the throttle body as well, so will I even feel the difference? I also don't expect to have to tune...

    I have a Tunable Induction CAI in my car, and I'm trying to decide where to get a fresh set of tunes as I'm planning to get a set of Pypes cat back x-pipes installed on wednesday. I got my original tunes from Tillman speed. I tried to access their website today though, and I think their servers...

    Ok, test drove the 5.0 with 3.73 gears, and in it's power band it was a MONSTER! But not as much as I expected anim_peep.gif... The 5.o was very nice , just not worth the extra coin(gas, insurance, and note) and they low balled my trade in. So having decided to keep the V6, its mod time... I...

    So I have a 2013 v6 mustang and as a first mod I want to get the BAMA tuner, and I was thinking about getting the Airaid CAI at the same time. What I want to know is if there is a noticeable difference in launch with the CAI or not. So basically tune only vs. tune+CAI Worth it to get the CAI...

    Recently bought a CAI for my 3.8L. Half way through installation i noticed that the sensors were different mine was a bulky screw in and one i need was slim plastic pop in. i bought the new sensor from discount, but the plug on the harness is diffrent for it so i had to go to junk yard to buy...

    Bought a JLT Cold Air Intake a few months ago and after a few weeks of stumbling on start up and rough idling it finally decided not to start this morning. I took it to my local dealership and after about 15 minutes hooked up to the IDS, it showed that the car was over fueling about 30%. We...

    Forgive me if I'm in the wrong place. I'm new. I have a 1996 3.8 V6 and was wondering, could I remove the freeze plugs from the upper plenum and run a couple tubes from the two plug spots to the Hood inserts to act as a sort of cold air intake? I've heard they would both need MAF sensors and...

    First of all... I know that there is a sticky forum for cold air intakes but I don't want this to be missed among the numerous posts. My 02 GT has a chip of some sort that was installed by a previous owner and I have no clue what it is for... or how to find it and figure it out. All I know is...

    Hi, just purchased 2006 mustang gt with shaker hood system, was wondering if combining it with a cold air intake is worth any added performance? Thanks.

    the modifications i am hoping to get for my 2006 4.0L V6 is a Borla 11751 single axleback muffler for the stock Y pipe, Airaid cold air intake, and bama custom tuner (i would keep the bama race tune in my car). how much horsepower would i probably gain? i was hoping for 50 but i thought it may...

    I am looking to add some horsepower to my 2011 GT California Special. I recently bought it and paid for the new car warranty on it. I want to add some performance parts without voiding my warranty. I mostly want simple things like cold air intakes and performance exhaust that isn't too loud. I...
