AIRAID Puts More Muscle and Style in the Mustang GTYou may have seen our recent Coyote (11-13 5.0L Mustang) induction guide in the September 2012 issue (if not you can read it HERE). In that guide we looked at the AIRAID plastic intake, but they also offer this trick looking real carbon fiber setup too. If you're a fan of the carbon weave, you've got to check out this optional/upgrade version in the blog below.
The late-model muscle car wars are in full swing, and Ford has a heavy stake in the game with the current generation 5.0L Mustang GT. With over 400 horsepower on tap, the 2011-2013 is a potent player. Knowing that performance enthusiasts are never satisfied with stock, AIRAID has released a new MXP-Series Carbon Fiber Intake System for the Mustang that offers additional horsepower with style!
The AIRAID system starts with a real carbon fiber 4.25” diameter intake tube. This is not some cheap imitation piece; it is REAL carbon fiber that adds a show-quality look to the engine compartment. It allows for unrestricted airflow and incorporates a special billet plate that accepts the factory MAF sensor. The Intake Tube connects to AIRAID’s new one-piece roto-molded Cold Air Box via a urethane “hump hose” and stainless steel clamps. The box is designed to keep hot engine compartment air away from the filter while increasing the amount of cold air available, and even utilizes the factory cold air scoop.
The heart of AIRAID’s MXP Carbon Fiber Intake System for the Mustang is the massive 1300-cfm air filter, which provides the engine with a steady supply of clean, cold air. The filter is available in either the company’s SynthaFlow® composite material or SynthaMax® non-oiled filtration technology. Each filter is constructed with a special blend of urethane that will not crack or warp, and is washable and reusable.
This system is dyno-proven to produce an additional 11 horsepower and 11 lb-ft of torque. It includes all of the necessary hardware and uses factory mounting points for an easy installation. Like the rest of AIRAID’s extensive product line, this new MXP-Series Carbon Fiber Intake System is made in the USA and backed by the company’s “No Hassle” warranty.
