Wake up the hidden power of your EcoBoost Fusion by taking the intake system to the next level with our in house designed tested and manufactured Steeda Cold Air System.

This cold air system does not require any ECM tuning making it an easy direct bolt on. On the 1.6L EcoBoost engines expect point to point gains of up to 10 horsepower at the wheels and point to point gains on the 2.0L EcoBoost engines of up to 18 horsepower at the wheels! Performance gains you will definitely feel! In addition under steady state driving conditions an increase in gas mileage should be noticed.

Our system was designed to utilize the cold air feed coming from the grille while the airbox seals directly to the hood liner to ensure a cool dense air charge to the engine.

CA Residents: Cancer and Reproductive Harm WARNING

Hello Fusion friends, Brian from here today to show you our cold air intake for the CD4 Ford Fusion. CD4 Fusion was equipped with a handful of different engines. Now this intake is designed to fit the 1.5, 1.6 or 2.0 liter EcoBoost versions of those and those engines being four cylinders and turbocharged tend to be prone to heat soak as well as kind of suffocating from the small scrawny little factory airbox and this means when you're stuck in traffic or even on the highway as you're driving the car engine heat builds up under the hood and then it gradually soaks into the airbox, comes into the inlet tube which leads to the turbo. Gets recycled right back through your intercooler as hot air already and then into to the engine. So if the intake air temperatures are higher the engine time is going to get pulled back. This means less performance, less fun and even worse fuel economy. The way we've designed our airbox is to prevent many of those things, increase performance, increase the fun factor and you know what if you drive it right you'll still even get better fuel mileage than you did before. Here's how we're able to achieve these performance gains. We've designed the airbox to actually be bigger as far as volume is concerned. When you're installing it you will notice that it is considerably bigger than the factory airbox. Still fitting within the stock area so no major modifications are required but it is bigger. Now we've run the seal across the top of it to still seal it against your hood so that no engine heat can get in around it and into the filter thus the turbo, the engine, you get the idea but the most important aspect of this is the fresh air feed that's right down in front this will allow air to pass through your front bumper. Fresh cold air right into the intake and right toward the filter. This is going to be the fresh air that's then taken into the turbo which will be cooler air, keeping your intake air temperatures down. Meaning more power and again better mileage if you drive it right. A couple of additional key components to the intake that contribute to the increased performance are, the air filter and the velocity stack. Now the air filter is a lifetime washable unit and the velocity stack well it does exactly that, increases the velocity of air coming into the engine it does this by starting out larger and channeling down smaller in a smooth tapered fashion. This is important because this will increase throttle response at low rpm as well as efficiency and airflow to the turbo at higher rpm. What this ultimately means is better drivability and better performance. One of the reasons that this cold air kit is so popular it's because it's an easy installation and it makes good power. On the 1.6 liters we typically see about 10 horsepower to the tires and on the 2 liter generally about 18 horsepower. Now this is running the factory ECU with no tune. It doesn't require tune but if you add a tune it's gonna really fatten up the power band and your peak horsepower will be even higher. This leads us to the question of with our intake how much power did you make? If you have any questions or comments please post them below.

2019 Ford Fusion 2.0
Awesome product and very easy to install. Took maybe 25-30 mins to install. Can definitely feel the difference. Would recommend to anyone with a 2.0 Fusion. Great quality too

Bought this to increase horsepower on my 2018 Fusion Titanium AWD 2.0L. I definitely feel an increase in performance plus I love the sound of the Intake. Install was straight forward, I’d say give yourself about 45 min to do it. This thing should keep my engine running more efficiently.

Easy installation, looks awesome and sounds phenomenal. You can feel a power difference and a much quicker throttle response time. I am more than pleased with this for my 2016 2.0L Ford Fusion Titanium.

Must have!
Major difference in the sound. Can certainly hear the air sucking in! It also enhances the sound of the factory turbo but I recommend this CAI along with the Turbosmart BOV. Personally the most challenging part I thought was the removal and installation of the sensor since that part is so delicate. Install took maybe 45 mins total, most of that time fiddling with the sensor! Either way - I suggest you go with the Sterda CAI if you're considering one, sounds and performs amazing!

Not quite perfect
The good: the sound, the performance increase and the absolute ease of installation. The bad: there seems to be one area that can't seal due to an indentation in the hood liner. I was blown away at how easy this installation was. I can't decide if the hardest part was the insertion of the AIT sensor or installing the seal. Either way this takes no time at all. I also want to point out how top notch customer service is. Is messed up my original seal and the company was kind enough to send me a new one at no charge even though I offered to pay for it. That's enough to keep my business!

The Steeda cold air intake is the first I've ever personally experienced. It does have the turbo sounds and flutters many are looking for, but more so on the exterior of the car. (not sure what happened after I had a mechanic do my transmission fluid.. intake hose was not installed but it sounded great when I had first installed it.. now it is quieter.)

A must have
I was apprehensive at first because most CAI don't really work... Or make your car preform worse. After I bought this, I have been getting 2mpg increase. And I do feel the increase in performance (as well as it sounds good too) when I need it. This is a must have.

Ford's performances
Looks amazing and sound great able to here that baby 1.5 boost letting you know its wanting to play. Its tight fit on 2018 but works beautiful. If you want to do power adders id say steeda does know Ford's and can help give you that Steeda Fusion that you would wish you could order from dealer

"Steeda" enough said!!
First of all the CAI arrived very fast, install was about 45 mins (including removal of the factory intake) simple instructions, the sound is amazing, my 2.0 breathes a TON better than the factory filter, and i can tell a slight increase taking off in my AWD. as for the "increase in fuel economy" i have not seen any difference on city or highway driving according to my AVG MPG on the dash, I do however highly recommend this product Steeda makes it simple with high quality products! thank you for that. Next on the list is a bigger turbo and tuner from Steeda!

Tight Fight on 17 Fusion, but works well!
It seemed to be a bit tight of a fit on a 17 fusion - the wires for the air sensor are a tad shorter than in their videos so you have a REAL snug fit with them... took a bit to get it worked in their well compared to the videos. However, it does give a good noise (not too loud) and it seems to give me MPG gains. However, it's -10 in MN and it's hard to tell. So far, so good though. 4 stars because I'm a noob and this was my first install and I'm not sure what to expect.

Great Add-On
This is the fifth add-on for my 2016 Titanium. After lowering springs, strut tower brace, rear sway bar upgrade, and a Magnaflow cat-back system (All through Steeda), this Cold Air Intake is what makes sense. As stated by others, a little turbo flutter is noticeable at around 1800-2000 RPMs, but is negligible. I was a little disappointed with the fit. the right side (as viewing from the front), did not seal up against the bottom of the hood (The only reason for the 4 star rating). This was easily remedied by making a support utilizing some 1.25 inch light weight tubing with walking cane tips with an overall length of 7.7 inches, mounted to the bottom of the box to the lowest original air box mounting grommet. This sealed it right up against the hood. The only other thing is I wished they could supply a red filter element as well as the blue filter supplied. That's just me being picky as I have detailed with red under the hood. All-in-all, another great product from Steeda. Thank you all! I can't wait to add the tune to my Fusion.

This CAI is amazing. Not only did i gain HP and gas mileage buuuuuuuuuut my little turbo began to flutter. I never thought just a CAI could do that but this is the real deal. I HIGHLY recommend to all fellow ford owners!!!

Noticeable noise difference. However it should be noted that the 2016 fusions bolts that hold the air box in place have been changed to a 7 mm.

Love it!
Installed in my 2013 Ford Fusion SE Ecoboost. I can definitely feel the torque. Only took about an hour for me to install considering I'm a beginner when it comes to this stuff. I had a few questions about my order and Frank and the Steeda staff were always very helpful. I highly recommend this unit and the cleaning kit. I will never have to buy one of those cheap air filters again when I get my oil change. Thanks Steeda!

Awesome first upgrade
I had this CAI waiting for my '14 Fusion Titanium when it was delivered Memorial Day weekend. Already had the components assembled, so the install took 15 minutes--actually took me longer to remove the stock airbox. I have the Zeibart sound-deadening in my car, so naturally the new sound is somewhat muffled, but I can still hear the difference, even more so with the windows down. More of an aggressive note, but not overbearing at all. It was exactly the induction note I was hoping for, and the power/torque that comes with it seems right on par with the 18hp gains Steeda indicates. Need to dyno the car for exact numbers, of course, but for a "bolt on" upgrade, it's a great addition. Very good build quality, and quite lightweight. Even with no tunes, I am very happy with this CAI. Highly recommended, thanks Steeda! -AD

Highly recommend!
I installed this right before a trip of 200 miles. Going up the first hill I noticed the torque increase. The 2013 Fusion 2.0 EcoBoost has not impressed me at all until now. It really brought it to life! I made this trip close to 100 times in the last year with this car with an average of 27 mpg. This time it averaged 31 mpg. This is checking with the instant fuel mileage and at the pump. Very easy installation. Highly recommend!

Couldn't be happier!
The 2.0 EcoBoost Fusion is a great car and Steeda's intake made it even better. The intake is made very well, i was even impressed by the quality of the gasket.... It sounds AWESOME !! If you like that kind of sound and if you want quiet ? it does that to. Install was a breeze with just a few hand tools and well explained instructions. Thanks Steeda !!

Awesome product
This CAI is quality! The install was easy and done in less than 1 hour. The sound from under the hood is great and lets you know there is something different going on under acceleration. You really can feel the difference in acceleration too. May have to look into the exhaust to go with it now!! Made in the USA adds the icing on this cake!!

This is my first Cold Air Intake install and I'm very impressed. I loved my Fusion before, but now it has an aggressive sound and seamless acceleration. Its nice to have 4 banger MPG, without sounding like a turbo
