Intake

I put a sr performance intake from American muscle on my automatic 2012 mustang v6 . It feels like I lost low end power but idk for sure. It doesn't pull as hard from around 20. Tires use to spin when I floored it at 20 now they don't . I can hear the intake sucking in air so I think it's on correctly. Any idea what the problem is. Maybe the tube isn't far enough in the cone filter or the throttle body ?? Please help

No not on this one I was told. Is my car not performing as well because my car was tuned with the stock intake?

The only tune required CAI for the 3.7L Mustangs is the Steeda intake.

I would definitely go over the installation and see if anything looks like it's not installed correct. You definitely shouldn't be feeling a loss in power. This intake is usually "No Tune Required" however, you could be throwing it off a bit since you actually tuned the car for the stock intake and your current mods.

I would recommend giving whoever tuned your car a call and see if they can update the parameters for the SR CAI. We've run this on a few different project cars here at AM and definitely noticed some good improvements!

Hope this helps. Let me know if you have any questions or need some assistance.

-Dan

It may be that you need to update your tune. Even though you have one of those no tune required intakes, there is an increased amount of air going into your engine that the computer doesn't know what to do with. You need to calibrate your tune to let it know you're no longer running with the stock intake. Maybe that will help.

My sound stupid but try this:

Disconnect the battery for about 1/2 hour. Connect it back up and drive about fifty miles and see if it is not better.

Or else go back to your stock tune. See what happens.

CAI's that specify they do not require a tune are because the stock mapping can adjust for the increased air flow of the CAI.

However, if other mods have been done, including a tune to support the other mods, then that current tune may not be able to compinsate for the increased (?) air flow of the CAI.

As mentioned, call the folks that supplied your tune and ask them.
