1968 Mustang Cold Air Intakes
Your car’s motor makes power by mixing air and fuel. It makes sense that the best way to help your motor perform is by optimizing that mixture. A cold air intake moves the location where intake air is drawn from, allowing it to breathe colder, denser air. This cooler intake charge can be mixed with additional fuel, resulting in more power to you. Our selection of 1968 Mustang cold air intakes are available at great low prices and make an excellent first step into the world of tuning. Best of all, they’ll bolt right up to your factory intake manifold in a matter of minutes, so you don’t have to be a professional mechanic to install them.
1968 Cold Air Intakes
1968 Mustang Cold Air Intake KitsThe four-stroke engine’s cycle is no mystery — intake air is pulled into the cylinder, mixed with fuel, compressed by the piston and lit by your ignition system. Cold air is denser than warm air, which means that when your intake charge is delivered at a lower temperature, you can introduce more fuel to the mixture. More fuel equals more power, which might not come as a surprise. You’ll be pleased to learn, however, that you can also expect an increase in fuel efficiency. The increase in the potency of an individual revolution means that your car will burn fuel cleaner and produce more power under less load.
The installation of a 1968 Mustang cold air intake is one of the least complicated upgrades you can perform because the emissions equipment found on late-model cars isn’t present to make things complicated. After you remove your stock intake, you can install your upgraded air filter and intake plumbing. In most cases, no changes to your carburetor or ignition settings are needed. If the filter element for your intake requires lubrication, apply the included filter oil before installing. This typically just means spraying the element down with oil that helps suspend small particles, making sure that the inside of your motor remains clean.
Consider Additional Exhaust Upgrades for Even Better PerformanceThe result of your hard work should be an engine that feels more responsive, delivers increased torque and horsepower, and burns less fuel.
Like other common intake upgrades, our 1968 Mustang cold air intakes will produce the most prominent horsepower gains when the cold intake charge that is breathed in can travel from the engine out through your exhaust system without encountering backpressure. To help accomplish this, we recommend that you pair your 1968 Mustang’s cold air intake with other induction and exhaust upgrades.
For example, the addition of a performance intake manifold, headers and cat back exhaust system will free up resistance throughout the induction system on your car. You’ll get impressive horsepower gains and a great-sounding engine.
