1980 Mustang Cold Air Intakes

Cold Air Intakes

Density of air changes with temperature, and is inversely proportional to temperature. This means that the cooler the temperature, the higher the density, and vice versa. An engine requires high-density air in order to produce optimum horsepower, which is why a cold air intake system is a crucial component of your 1980 Mustang. A stock 1980 Mustang air intake can be easily swapped for a more modern cold air intake system. With denser air being fed to the cylinders, your engine will produce more power without using too much fuel. So if you’re looking for increased power, CJ Pony Parts has the cold air intake kit you need for your 1980 Mustang.

How Does Cold Air Intake Work?

If you pop open the hood of your stock Mustang, you’ll find an air box connected to an air filter, which in turn feeds air into the intake manifold. A cold air intake negates the use of an air box. To maximize air flow, a cold air intake system uses larger diameter pipes that connect straight to the manifold, and a filter connects to the pipe leading to the manifold. This way, cooler air entering the engine bay is forced into the manifold.

So how does this process affect your Mustang’s performance? Here are a few of the benefits a new cold air intake has over your stock system:

• Improved combustion – Cooler, denser air being fed to the engine results in better combustion of fuel.
• Gain horsepower – A cold air intake increases the air flow, and denser air equals more horsepower.
• Easy to install – Aftermarket cold air intakes are built to OEM specifications and are quite easy to install. And if you ever get stuck, our installation video guides will walk you through the process.

If you are planning to modify your Fox body Mustang, adding a cold air intake can be an easy and effective starting point for your build.
