Cold Air Intake Question

I have a BBK cold air intake I purchased for a 2004 V-6 Mustang about five years ago. I was wondering if it is interchangeable to a 2009 Mustang GT. I am pretty sure it isn't, but you never know. It looks the same as the ones they are now selling for the 2005-2009 Mustang GTs. Is it?

When I buy a cold air intake I want to go with a BBK becuase they don't require any tuning. They're simple to install and they give you a good jump in horsepower. They say it's about a 15-20 horsepower difference.

I haven't had time to research this, so I figured I just ask some fellow gear heads.

Thanks in advance,
Jason

Re: Cold Air Intake Question

Well, I'm not really going to go much out on a limb here, but, no, they are not interchangeable. The GT intake is on the driver side of the engine bay, the V6 is on the passenger. Then you get into the whole location of the filter, size of the inlet...hell, that kit probably wouldn't even fit a 2004 GT.

Re: Cold Air Intake Question

no the intake won't fit in anyway, shape, or form. As for the BBK CAI giving you 15-20hp, again another big NO. 5-10 at best is more like. The intakes that require a tune are the only ones worth spending money on. Unless your just installing a CAI for looks, and not performance gains.

Re: Cold Air Intake Question

I understand that it won't give me a 15-20 HP jump. That's what BBK's website says it will give. That's the best possible output you can expect under perfect conditions. Which means you'll never see it.

I'm afraid that if I go with an intake which requires a tune it could void my factory warranty. Anyone know if that's true? I may just keep it stock for a while and add a couple exterior (cosmetic) items. I've been thinking about getting a new upper and lower grille and tinting the windows.

Re: Cold Air Intake Question

The SVT Tech-at my local Ford store-told me if I order the CAI from FRPP-that he will order the Programmer-through some form-do the install, register it with Ford-and that it will be covered under warranty. As has been discussed-over the years, and many times-even though there are laws to protect the consumer-as it relates to modifications-they can deny a warranty claim on almost anything at the dealership-especially if they can trace any issue back to a modification. You practically have to "know somebody"-and/or be willing to risk the denial of a warranty claim-when you start modifying...:

Re: Cold Air Intake Question

`Best to ask the local dealer-as they would be the one to look at a "WARRANTY CLAIM"-see what their response is. If you aren't worried-'mod on', man.

Re: Cold Air Intake Question

newer GT's with a GOOD cai and tune (good tune not a pos off the shelf tune) can pick up 20-25rwhp

Re: Cold Air Intake Question

i think it is callled the Magnus Moss act. it says something like you can put a comprable part or better on with out it voiding a warranty. in theory if the whole voiding warranty held up, they could void your warranty for different tires on the car, because that is not oem, or what the manufactorer specd.

forced induction is one thing but cai dont always do as well as you may think some actually hurt the car. especialy an engine with a mass air flow sensor. if the pipe going to the throttle body is say 2inch then you put one on that is 3 inch, and replace the the mass air flow, the ecu does not read right and you screw alot up. you start to pull more air in than the ecu registers. then the problem can be compunded if you have a high flowing exhaust.

the best is if you live in california, and their carb bs. the carb stiucker that haas to be on all parts.

Your scenario is a little skewed because the MAF is not part of a CAI...but I know what you are getting at. Those kits that do come with a MAF flat out say you need a retune, so if you don't, then you deserve to have your stuff break.

Re: Cold Air Intake Question

my gf owns a mustang, i own a wrx, i am on here to get info about her car to fix some problems. some subarus have them maf. you screw with diameter of intake, you can make more problems then solve. i didnt know they didnt have them. but if they did you can just run lean.

but here is one though, you dont really need them if you have forced induction.
another thing is if you get one MAKE SURE you get a bypass valve. WATER IS UNCOMPRESSABLE. i know first hand, water beats connecting rods every time, but its amusing to see water shoot out of your spark holes after you have removed them. just 2 cents.

Go for it and don't stress the little stuff. With a screwdriver, you can remove the CAI and put the stock air box back in in 10 minutes while drinking a beer. Then, you plug the tuner in and put your stock tune back in, and the dealer will never know the difference.

No worries about the warranty, IMO. Not with these simple mods.
