What is a good cold air intake system for a 2008 mustang?

The best cold air intake that you can get is the factory cold air intake.
Your intake all ready has duct work that gets its air from outside the engine compartment. The really funny part is that most aftermarket cold air intakes do not get there air from outside the engine compartment. They get there air from directly behind the radiator (one of the hottest places that they could get air from) so they are really hot air intakes not cold. also the fancy aluminum pipe does not flow any better that a plastic pipe (it just looks better). They do not give you any noticeable H.P. gains what so ever. Look at it this way if you completely remove the air filter and all the duct work going to it you may gain 2 or 3 horse power so how is putting a shinny pipe on it going to make it flow better than a completely unrestricted flow. does not make sense huh.

All they do is cost you a bunch of money look shiny and make you car sound like it has a vacuum leak. So unless you just have to have that shiny metal pipe leave the air intake alone you will be sadly disappointed.

Your Mustang HAS a cold air intake -- the engineers at Ford are perfectly capable of installing a piece of aluminum pipe if it actually increased hp, (which it doesn't), so save your money.

Sorry for reviving this thread. Just a quick heads up to this. It depends on your mustang's engine. Sometimes air intake system in other models will not be compatible for 2008 mustang. Well sometimes, you may need to install a new air intake adapter so that your car's intake system will function properly. Double check it again or much better if you will go to Ford parts dealer.
