Seriously!! Someone help!!!!

I have a 2004 Mustang with the 3.9L Engine. I am looking for a cold air intake for it but I've heard that the cold air intakes will not fit because they are made for the 3.8 99-03 models. Americanmuscle.com also told me this. Is this true and if not, am I safe to order a BBK CAI for my '04????

The 3.9L engine itself has nothing to do with it. I am not sure if anything changes in the engine bay though on the 2004 model to make it where the 03 CAI wouldn't fit though.

THe 3.9L motor is the same motor as the 3.8L with some windstar internals that give it that extra .1 liters. Buy a CAI for an 03 and it will fit the 04. Not sure why anyone would tell you what you typed, but they are out in left field picking daisies when it comes to reality.

Re: Seriously!! Someone help!!!!

A 3.9 L (238 in³) 12-valve version with 3.8 in (96.5 mm) bore and 3.46 in (87.9 mm) stroke was introduced in 2004. It was installed in a running change on later production 2004 Mustangs before it was replaced by the 4.0 L Cologne OHC engine.

Applications:

2004 Ford Mustang
2004-2007 Ford Freestar
Ford spec sheets note this engine as 3802 cc (232 in³). The bore and stroke, however, work out to 3857 cc (236 in³). Another strange thing is that this engine, if specs are to be believed, is .010 in underbore compared to the 3.8 and 4.2.

The 3.9 is the motor God himself has in his personal car. It is even mightier than the LSWon.
