1969 Mustang Cold Air Intakes
Your motor needs air to make power. Typically, this air is pulled from the engine bay where it’s hot. Changing the location of your car’s air intake can help produce power by delivering a cooler, denser intake charge. This cooler air can be combined with more fuel, which results in more power and torque. Our selection of 1969 Mustang cold air intakes is designed to take advantage of the Mustang’s large engine bay which — unadorned with smog equipment — provides plenty of space for extra intake plumbing. Your motor will be able to draw air from cooler pockets in the air dam or even headlight space, rather than close to your hot-running exhaust manifold.
1969 Cold Air Intakes
The Basics of 1969 Mustang Cold Air IntakesIt’s not uncommon to see cars that use techniques similar to those used by cold-air intakes — but without the plumbing to make them effective. For example, Mustang owners add hood scoops to their cars to achieve a “ram air” effect, but they don’t actually have plumbing in place to feed the car’s intake manifold. Our selection of 1969 Mustang cold air intakes features fully functional pieces that will add horsepower and torque to your car’s output.
Some of the 1969 Mustang cold air intakes we offer may use an oiled filter element in place of the paper elements you might be more familiar with. If the cold air intake you’ve selected has a reusable oiled element, make sure you coat it thoroughly before running your car with the new intake installed. The oil coating helps remove small particles that might otherwise contribute to fouling your engine oil from the intake charge.
Maximize Performance With Other Bolt-on UpgradesA cold air intake is a great start and an affordable way to add bolt-on performance to your car. To maximize the gains you get from your 1969 Mustang’s cold air intake, we highly recommend combining it with a few other bolt-on upgrades. A wider throttle body is a great way to allow a larger intake charge in. When combined with a performance intake manifold such as those we carry from Holley and Edelbrock, it will maximize the denser charge you are delivering with your new intake.
More intake charge means more exhaust to dispose of. If you’re considering upgrading the intake side of your motor, do yourself a favor and research exhaust options. Whether you decide to go with a complete header-back exhaust system, install one of the many cat back options we have available or even just swap out your existing mufflers for a less restrictive set, these are upgrades that will complement your new cold air intake system.
