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.

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.

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.

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!

Vehicle Fitment

This product will fit the following Mustang years:

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent mod Bought & fitted about a month ago, this kit has made a noticeable difference. You don't notice the 5bhp or so that you might get, but you notice the engine revs more freely, and is quicker to respond. It has also made the exhaust note (with resonator delete and Borla S-Type axle back silencers), deeper. On install, I'd recommend you soak the hump hose and grommets/blanks in a bowl of hot water for 10 mins, then dry them, first, to soften them, and another advisory: attach the airaid intake tube & hump hose to the cold air box, then connect the intake tube to the installed reducing coupler; it seems almost impossible to install the intake tube as suggested in the install instructions. Overall, well worth the investment.

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 4 out of 5 by from Looks and sounds amazing I always install cold air intakes on my cars from K&N and chose to go with Airaid for my Mustang GTCS. I do not regret it. Looks and sounds amazing. Can’t really feel a difference though, maybe slightly. I have it paired with a Ford Racing Touring exhaust. Only reason I didn’t give it 5 stars was because it was a pain to the the plug for that hole that newer 2017 Mustangs don’t use. A PAIN! Plus I was missing the larger rubber grommet too so ended going to Lowes to buy one. Minus the before mentioned issues, everything else was smooth.

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.

Can I use on 88 octane or lower gasoline

Asked by: Indianstang
Because this does not require a tune you will be fine using whatever the minimum octane rating is suggested by the manufacturer.

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.
