Cold air intake warranty

Hi im new to the forums. I have a 2011 yellow mustang gt. I have the pypes catback on order and wanted to up the power to around 440hp to be equal / close to the boss.

Will using a cold air intake ruin the warranty? Im thinking a catback + cai will net 30hp

Thanks, Dennis

Re: Cold air intake warranty

Neither of those mods will give you many HP at all without a tune...and the tune will definitely void your warranty...

Yes you are correct but i wont tune for obvious reasons even though its the best bang for buck. I was looking into just axlebacks for sound but then i decieded why go cheap im going to have the car a long time.

Most inatkes require a tune cause the inlet tube has a larger diameter and filter bringing in more air. You can purchase an intake system witch keeps same same size diameter as your stock intake and doesnt require tune but it wont add a 1/4of the hp as a tuned intake...hope this helps....im running a c&l cold air intake with a bama 91R tune an i have 18000km on mine and shes running great..

Welcome to the forums!

I don't think that a "no tune" CAI and cat-back exhaust will net you very much HP/TQ gain at all. The biggest issue with the exhaust systems on these cars is the restrictive cats. Everything back is just going to change the sound of the exhaust.

The 444HP/380TQ that the Boss makes is much different than the 412HP/390TQ that the GT makes. The Boss uses a different intake manifold, heads and cams to produce a torque curve that is almost entirely different than a GT. There are also some suspension mods that will enable it to to whoop you anyways, even if you are putting down the same power. Also, your stang only makes 412HP/390TQ on 91 octane or better. If you're running 87 you're actually putting down 402HP/377TQ.(1)

You said you aren't going with a tune "for the obvious reasons." What are those reasons? Many of us here (and on other forums) are running tunes and have no issues.

Re: Cold air intake warranty

C'mon man, the obvious reason is...obvious...when a guy is asking about a CAI that doesn't void the warranty....

However, OP can hit 444 FWHP or pretty close to it with JUST a tune, no other changes. That's why, if I do anything, I'm going tune first, then flow mods, not the other way round.

Yeah, I'm just curious which line(s) of FUD he's been reading... the **** seems to spread like wildfire nowadays.
