Product Description

Airaid MXP Series Cold Air Intake Kit with a Red SynthaMax Filter for all 2015, 2016 and 2017 GT Mustangs.

The 2015-2017 Mustang GT is better than ever, and Airaid decided to pull out all the stops to develop the best Cold Air Intake system for the all-new S550 platform. Building on Airaid’s very popular Cold Air Intakes for late-model Mustangs, Airaid’s new MXP-Series Cold Air Intake for the 2015-2017 5.0L GT will surely deliver what performance enthusiasts demand.

The new intake features a specially designed one-piece rotomolded intake box that draws cool outside air from the factory air duct location while having a unique shape that will promote airflow around the entire surface of the SynthaMax filter. The new air box design also utilizes a lid with a Plexiglass window that will add to your underhood styling while keeping the filter isolated from hot engine compartment air and will allow you to keep tabs on filter condition.

Tech Tip: For 2017 GT Mustangs manufactured after 9/16, vacuum for the CMCV’s (Charge Motion Control Valves) is no longer picked up from the intake tube. This will require a plug to be used with the unused port/fitting on your new cold air intake tube when installing on all 2017 GT Mustangs built after 9/16 only. The production date on the vehicle (month/year) is located on decal in driver side door jamb.

Cold Air Kit Includes:
- One-piece Rotomolded Intake Box
- Plastic Intake Tube
- Silicone Couplers
- Stainless Steel Clamps
- 1300-cfm Red SynthaMax Dry Filter
- Installation Hardware and Instructions

SynthaMax Filter Features:
- Plexiglass window to help keep track of filter condition
- Oil free maintenance, which makes servicing easy
- Washable and reusable
- Unrivaled filtration efficiency, 99+% efficiency rating
- 100% synthetic
- Made in the USA
- Lifetime warranty

The new application-specific intake tube connects the air box assembly to the throttle body on the engine. Designed to maximize airflow and eliminate restrictions, the 5.0L intake tube measures 4” in diameter at the throttle body to support other engine modifications while having a specially formed venturi to ensure accurate MAF sensor readings.

By utilizing computer-aided design (CAD), Airaid Intakes offer an unmatched fit, finish, and a lifetime warranty. Each Airaid intake provides superior air filtration, this kit comes with an Airaid Premium Blue SynthaMax Filter that features their exclusive patented filter technology. Designed for high-performance applications, the MXP Intakes start with a new one piece roto-molded air box that addresses all the shortcomings of the restrictive factory design. Then Airaid adds a new air intake tube constructed of cross-linked, high-density Polyethylene that is designed using extensive computer modeling to maintain proper mass air flow readings and calibration.

The MXP Series from Airaid represents the ultimate in Cold Air Induction systems on the market today. Order the Airaid MXP Series Cold Air Intake Kit with a Red SynthaMax Filter for your 2015, 2016 or 2017 Mustang GT from CJ Pony Parts today!

Airaid Cold Air Intake Kit MXP Series With Red SynthaMax Filter GT 2015-2017 is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 12.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from great quality! and super easy to install Took maybe 15 - 20 minutes to install, looks great under the hood. big thing i noticed driving is a much better throttle response, and the power band in 3rd and 4th gear feel a lot stronger, if you have the money, buy it

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My cold air install Everything was here in box. Package really well. The install went fairly easy. Little trouble getting the air tube to squeeze between rubber hose adaptors. I left air box loose for more movement. Other than that, went really smooth. I kept sound tube, and it does have a little louder sound than factory. Just by the feel of things, I think the engine approves as well. I haven't driven far yet, but I can tell this was the right thing to do for the car. I love the looks under hood also.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good fit, but had a couple of issues. This CAI looks good and I like that it does not require a retune to install. Install was not too difficult, but I did have two issues. First the speed clamps provided for the new resonator tube were 1" ID and the hose was 1" ID not 1" OD so the clamps were not the right size. Easy fix with some new worm style clamps for a few bucks. Second the plexiglass cover supplied with mine had some scuff marks on it. Nothing too bad, but it should have been perfect for the price IMO.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy installation and nice look! I received about a week ago and install it today. The installation was easy. Very good instructions.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Well produced product I just got my intake today and couldn't wait to install it. To my surprise and disappointment there were no screws bolts or washers of any kind included with my product. The instructions clearly state to use the included hardware.....pretty hard to do when they don't include that hardware. And today is a civic holiday so not much open to buy the necessary this price I shouldn't have to buy the hardware.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Quality Upgrade Pros: Engine obviously breathes better. Increased throttle response Engine runs cooler on highway Car is noticeably faster Cons: Engine runs hotter at idle, and in traffic. Not recommended for driving in traffic. Not smog legal in California May void warranty

Rated 5 out of 5 by from One word: Quality Nothing beats "Made in the USA"! From the packaging, materials, instructions, performance and confidence of the product, this is well worth the money. Performance: Noticed quicker throttle response. Appearance: Sweet.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to install. Very durable. I bought this a week ago and installed it today. Took about 40 min, instructions are easy, and the intake looks great. Very happy with this product!

Product Questions

Will this CAI work with the 87mm gt350 throttle body?

Asked by: furiousfuria
It will be a tight fit with the included silicone coupler but you may be able to stretch it on. We have not personally tested that fitment but I know other people have been able to make it work.

Is this Air intake compatible with the installation of the Mishimoto Coolant Expansion Tank Aluminum Black?

Asked by: Grimreaper
Answered by: CJPP Dave
Date published: 2017-03-06

1) What is the best way to maintain it? 2) I know that it does not require a tune and that it is going to improve fuel economy and power. But if I did install the "n gauge" with the basic bolts on tune, will it improve even more or will it stay the same? 

Asked by: Qusay2
The filter is washable and reusable. There are several filter cleaning kits on the market for this. Even though a tune is not required, with the nGauge you will still notice significant gains.

What is the best way to maintain it ? And if in the future if I were to instal an "n gauge" and install a basic bolts on tune to it, will that make a difference than leaving it without a tune? Thank you

Asked by: Qusay1
The filter can be washed and air dried. Tuning will increase the power and efficiency of the engine.

Are these California smog compliant? If not....are they going to be in the future?

Asked by: pareed414
These are NOT California Smog Compliant. There is no word from the manufacturer if they ever will be.

What are the pros/cons (which is recommended for a daily driver) between the two types of filters offered by Airaid in these systems for the 2015 airbox?

Asked by: JEG70
The only difference is the color of the filter.
Answered by: CJ Pony Parts
Date published: 2016-08-03

So what is the rectangular piece removed in front of the resonator? Is that not needed? Also what is the purpose behind disconnecting the battery? Is that a safety concern or does it serve a purpose for the sensor ?

Asked by: mustngmack
Disconnecting the battery is simply a safety step.

Airaid Cold Air Intake Kit MXP Series With Red SynthaMax Filter GT 2015-2017 Video Transcript
By Bill Tumas: AIRAID MXP series cold air intake is a great first choice for modifying your 2015 Mustang GT. You get some extra horsepower of it. It looks great under the hood, and best of all, it does not require a tune making it a true bolt on and go modification. Today, we're going to show you how to install one using our 2015 Mustang GT project car.

The AIRAID kit starts with a one-piece plastic rotoformed air box, which actually works with the factory ducting and fixed in a factory location. It has a clear Plexiglass cover to give it a real nice custom look while allowing you keep an eye on your air filter as well. All the adapters, clamps, and hardware for installation are included along with a plastic inlet pipe and the Synthamax air filter, which does not require oil.

For this installation, we need a 1/4" ratchet, 7-mm socket, 8-mm socket, 10-mm socket, 6" extension, small flat blade screwdriver, 4-mm Allen key, T10 torx bit, T20 torx bit, and needle-nosed pliers.

We're going to begin the installation by removing the 3 thumb screws that hold the plastic battery cover on and disconnecting our battery. Next, we're going to remove our intake cover. You can remove the strut mount brace, which does make this easier, but if you don't want to remove the brace, you can get the cover off without removing it. Once the intake cover is out of the way, we can start removing our factory intake pipe. We'll remove these 3 breather tubes here and then the factory resonator as well. These are just little push in clips. Once the clamp is disconnected, remove both of these hose clamps and remove the inline hose.

The box is held in by only one bolt right here inside of the fender. Keep the bolt handy because you will need it with the new AIRAID. Once you have the air box out, you'll want to remove the grommet here and put it back in the car.

We're going to start prepping the air box for installation by installing the filter adapter. It will be on the inside of the box and screws in from the outside. Go ahead and grab your original air box. We can remove the mass air sensor and transfer it over to the AIRAID. Now, replace the sensor into the new tube and use the supplied hardware to put it in. It will only fit in one direction. Once the sensor is mounted, we're going to install all the aluminum fittings for our air hoses. The larger one goes here, the small one there, another one back here. Put the supplied grommets in place first.

Begin the installation on the car by installing the air box. It connects up to the factory duct work in the factory location. Then, we'll install the factory bolt to hold it down. AIRAID gives you the option to keep the sound tubal resonator or you can delete it. In our case, we're going to keep it. To do so, we're going to start by removing this clamp back here. We're going to replace the front part with the hose provided by AIRAID.

To start the air intake tube install, you'll want to grab the silicone coupler that has the hump in the middle and the 2 larger clamps and put it on the air filter adapter on the air box. Now, we'll take the other silicone adapter and put it on the throttle body. Make sure to leave the clamps in an orientation where you can actually get to them easier to tighten them down. Leave everything loose for now though. Now, we can install the intake tube. Once it's tight, we can reconnect all the hoses we disconnected. Make sure you hear a click when everything tightens down. Now, we'll reconnect the mass air sensor. Carefully move down the clip on the harness and put it into the AIRAID box. Make sure you don't have too much tension on that mass air wiring. We'll put the speed clamps on the supplied hose that goes to our air intake tube and our resonator. Once all the connections to the air intake tube are made we can move on to the filter. Again, you want to make sure the hose clamp is oriented so you can get to it to tighten it. It is a tight fit in here. Replace the Plexiglass cover in the groove on the air box. We'll put our aluminum trim on top. Grab the hardware and tighten it down. It's good to get them all started before you tighten them all the way down.

Now, we're going to reconnect your battery and re-install your engine cover, and your installation is finished.

The AIRAID intake sounds good, looks great. If the previous kits are an indication, it's going to make some horsepower on our 2015 as well. Installation is pretty straight forward and probably going to take you around half an hour. You should be back on the road in no time.
