Mustang 2011-2014 GT
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 5.0L Mustang to the next level of performance. The 2011 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 stainless steel heat shield with a durable rubber gasket to seal the shield against the vehicle's hood. Next we increased the MAF housing size to 95mm 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 stainless steel 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.
