I'm very impressed with this intake, it greatly improved throttle response and acceleration as well as increased fuel economy. It was more difficult to install than i had anticipated, I had to struggle to make some of the clamp rings fit. Generally, though not too bad and a great intake all together.

Having used several other name brand CAI on similar cars, I found Air Aids to be the cleanest fit and finish. It does produce a modest increase in thottle response and does feel as if the motor has greater torque at lower rpm's. Have not noticed any significant change in gas mileage. Car sounds wonderful with flowmaster exhaust. Would recommend to anyone considering a CAI.

Having tried aftermarket intakes from Steeda and C&L (both with custom tunes, delivered via XCal II and XCal III programmers, respectively, from some of the most respected names in the Mustang tuning industry) and having returned them both as unsatisfactory, the Airaid was my last shot at an aftermarket intake for the car. With both of the "tune/reflash required" intakes I tried, I gained considerable thrust at higher RPM (i.e., 3500 and better) but paid a significant torque penalty down low (2500 and less). The loss of low-end grunt really made the car unpleasant to drive in rush-hour traffic. Since it's my daily driver, that was a critical problem. (For what it's worth, I've begun to suspect that the elevation where I live -- 6,000 feet -- played an important role here. Many, many Mustang owners at lower elevations are delighted with the same intakes and tunes that simply didn't work for me.) The Airaid comes with a removable "venturi" insert. In place, it constricts the intake where the mass airflow sensor is located, ensuring that the car's computer can maintain appropriate air/fuel ratios without the need for a custom tune. Some fellow Mustang owners on the Internet forums were pleased with their Airaid kits, so I decided to try one. The supplied instructions were some of the best I've seen, and the installation was relatively painless. There was one point where I had to cut the (apparently, heat-shrunk) ends of the breather tube running from the passenger-side valve cover to the intake tube -- an irreversible operation -- but that was the diciest part of it. (Of course, by then, I'd installed the Steeda, then put the factory intake back on, then installed the C&L, then put the factory intake back on...) I must say the quality of the Airaid is outstanding. The materials, construction and fit were all top-notch. (Better even than the very nicely made Steeda intake.) Was it worth it? Well, first, it looks great. Much more visually interesting than the stock intake, if you care about appearances

Installation instructions were easy to follow with no modifications needed for my Mustang GT. I needed a little help from manufacturer and they were very courteous and professional. Better throttle response and giddy-up and go! Well satisfied with the product. It looks good too!

I usually don't take the time to write in about after market products, but the Airaid system that I recently installed and my new Mustang really hit it off. Unless my imagination has gotten the best of me, the Airaid intake made a very noticeable improvement in the performance of the car. I believe in air-in and air-out, and the Airaid gets the air-in working a whole lot better than the stock system.
