Steeda EcoBoost Mustang CAI Gains - Written by Steve Turner

Hello All:

Steve Turner just released an article on the new Steeda S550 EcoBoost CAI ... with very impressive gains:

Quote:
By just adding the CAI, Steeda’s testing showed gains of 26.7 horsepower and 9.76 lb-ft of torque and there are larger more consistent gains to be had with the companion SCT calibration. With the tune in the PCM the car picked up another 21.07 horsepower and 68.23 lb-ft of torque.
Since there were internal combustion engines, there have been hot rodders trying to increase their output. Over the years, engines have gotten far more efficient and powerful, but numerous production restraints keep carmakers from fully maximizing the performance of their engines.

For example, the factory induction systems have gotten much better over the years. The sealed air boxes in modern Mustangs are fed fresh ambient air from behind the grille via well-designed ducts. However, the flow potential of a sealed box with a panel filter is limited.

These days there is a new Mustang player in town—the EcoBoost Mustang—and its 2.3-liter engine wears a turbo from the factory. Forced induction engines usually respond even better to breathing mods than their naturally aspirated counterparts. So, it’s only natural that the aftermarket with design freer flowing induction systems for these cars.

One of the latest systems is Steeda’s ProFlow Mustang Cold Air Intake for 2015 EcoBoost Mustang (PN 555-3199; $394.95). The company’s testing of the system with and without a performance calibration, definitely showed impressive gains. So, during one of our visits to the company’s South Florida digs we were able to document the installation of the system, so keep reading to see how the system goes on.

A little more for you!

You have the option to run this bolt-on CAI with or without a tune. Please reference our dyno sheet included in the images above:
- Baseline run (non-PP): 256.51 rwhp and 288.27 ft/lbs tq

- CAI installed (factory tune): 283.21 rwhp and 298.03 ft/lbs tq

- CAI installed with Steeda tune: 304.28 rwhp and 366.26 ft/lbs tq

With no tune, we saw a gain of 26.7 rwhp and 9.76 ft/lbs tq!

With a Steeda tune, we saw a gain of 47.77 rwhp and 77.99 ft/lbs tq over stock!

I just have a hard time believing that Ford would leave 26 rwhp on the table from just a Cai.
I remember numbers like these when the 3.7 was released back in 2011 with aftermarket CAI claims........

Sent from the future.

With those types of gains, I feel like I am wasting my time with the 3.7! Those 2 mods alone gave the Ecoboost more power then all my mods put together!
