Steeda's ProFlow Cold Air Intake on an otherwise stock 2011 5.0L Mustang has achieved a blistering 1/4 mile time of 11.96 at over 115mph! Steeda was the first manufacturer to get into the 11.90 range on a radial tire. Competitors had to use slicks to keep up.

Steeda Autosports, the world's largest aftermarket manufacturer of Ford performance equipment is once again leading the performance market with our High Velocity Cold Air Intake (CAI). This intake was designed before the car was even available using CAD data supplied exclusively by Ford Motor Company via our Technology Transfer program with Ford engineers.

This high performance CAI effectively opens up the intake system of Ford's new five-liter power plant and allows it to breath much more freely than the stock intake system allows - taking your 2011 & Up 5.0L Mustang to the next level of performance.

The 2011 & Up 5.0L Mustang’s intake system from Ford is an excellent piece, one of the best ever to come out of Dearborn. But as usual, the engineers at Steeda were up to the challenge of making it even better for the performance customer that demands more power. Our engineers started with a large surface area high-flow nano-fiber air filter, added our famous “race-tested” velocity stack entry and then designed a black powder-coated heat shield with a durable rubber gasket to seal the shield against the vehicle’s hood. Next we increased the MAF housing size to 101mm and coupled it to a new higher flowing Pro-Flow inlet hose with our Cool-Tube Technology.

You would think this is more than enough, but we went the extra mile and designed this intake system to accept the factory sound tube should you decide you want to keep it for that robust intake sound many appreciate. Or if you want to eliminate it we provide the proper plug to delete it from the system.

To ensure the densest air charge possible we retained the factory cold air feed ducting from the front bumper. Steeda was the first company to do this starting in 2010 with our 2010 GT intake and have carried this innovation over to the 2011 model. We also sealed the black powder-coated heat shield to the hood to prevent any hot air from being sucked in from around the engine compartment. Some manufacturers have chosen to ignore the factory cold air ducting, while others don't bother to seal and isolate the airbox, which are both keys to keeping the lowest air charge temperatures possible. Also, our billet aluminum velocity stack and high flow air filter ensure a clean, streamlined air charge into the engine.

This Cold Air Intake is so effective at improving airflow into the five-liter engine that a performance tune is not just recommended, it is required for maximum performance! In an effort to maximize performance and provide our customers with only the very best products we have partnered with the leader in automotive tuning - SCT Performance.

Combined with the required custom tune using an SCT X3 Flash programming device we have achieved dramatic power increases of up to 44hp and 52ft/lbs of torque!

SCT Performance is the leader in the Ford tuning industry and Steeda's partner in developing this powerful package.

"SCT has seen the highest horsepower and torque results while using Steeda's Cold Air Kit, over any other brand." - Chris Johnson, President of SCT Performance

Our power increase it not just a peak number at one point in the band. The actual power increase is spread throughout the entire rpm range so your increased performance is available on demand in any gear at virtually any rpm!

Note: requires a minimum of 91 octane fuel for power gains.

You can purchase the intake by itself if you already own a flash programming device and intend to have your own custom tuning done or as our complete Ultimate Induction kit available separately. Check out the complete Ultimate Induction Kit which includes our Cold Air Intake matched to our SCT customer tuner, here.

Product Reviews

#Steeda makes a bunch of great parts and this cold air intake kit has got to be one of their flagship items! From the second you hold it in your hand you can tell it's super high quality/craftsmanship.

You can really hear a deeper tone coming from under the hood with the addition of this cold air intake. Shipping was fast, the customer support was terrific and the item was just as described. Thanks Steeda

Great build and attention to detail. The velocity stack is great and helps maximize airflow.

When I think of Steeda I think of a top shelf company that provides not only amazing products that actually work as advertised, but also great customer service.

They will go the extra mile to ensure you're fully satisfied!

The technician was even impressed at how precise everything fit - the craftsmanship is beautiful and the hp gain is noticeable!

The steeda tune cai is not the only company I considered. I used bama on my 2007 gt. After reading many forums and doing my homework I pulled the trigger. I couldn't be any happier.Fast shipping, incredible customer service, and performance. Top Notch! Dropped 1/2 a second on my 1/4 mile. Would probably be more, but I'm new to the drag scene. I get a little wheel hop. So I'm looking at steeda to fix it!!!

I bought this CAI a few months after getting my new '13 Mustang GT and it (combined with a tune) definitely woke up my car! The build quality is really good, although I did have a little trouble with the seal tubing staying in place on the shield. And I did screw up a bit on the installation, but it was totally my fault for not reading the instructions correctly, but after a couple emails, I was able to get a replacement part from Steeda and was back in business! Both the CAI and the customer service has been great and I will definitely be ordering more from Steeda in the future!

Love the quality of this CAI and how my GT drives with their 93 octane tune. This is a must for a first mod.

All i have to say is that this intake will turn your car into another animal! I highly recommend this for any new 5.0 stang out there...The performance and sound are amazing. Made a HUGE difference

I purchased the CAI and tune for my 2011 5.0 and was shocked to see the car run 11.98@115.40mph in the quarter mile on slicks. The car puts down 400HP at the wheels and drives like stock. If you want excellent power, driveability, and reliability then Steeda parts are where its at. Ive been buying from them since 1996 and cant say enough good things about Gus and the crew at Steeda.
