The AIRAID 452-245 MXP performance intake is designed to give your Ford Mustang some serious pony power.
When the Ford Mustang was introduced in 1964, it literally started a revolution. This pony car was the first sporty vehicle that young people could actually afford. GM and Chrysler were several years away from offering anything competitive, so Ford was able sell as many as they could build. It was also the first mass production car to offer individual options, allowing buyers to choose the exact equipment that they wanted regardless of the trim line. If somebody wanted a fuel efficient 6-cylinder, with racing stripes and bucket seats, they'd just tick the right boxes, pay the money, and their personalized pony car would be built to order. Fast forward 46 years, and the 2010 Ford Mustang V6 offered the same individuality options, along with the affordable performance of a Ford 4.0L V6. It has 210-hp and 240 lb-ft of torque, which offers sprightly performance and decent fuel economy. However, adding an AIRAID 452-245 MXP performance intake will increase horsepower and torque, giving your pony car some real horsepower.
AIRAID pre-filter wrap is designed to protect your air filter in extremely dirty/dusty environments.
An internal combustion engine makes power by burning a mixture of fuel and air inside of the cylinders. This is accomplished by igniting the gas with a spark plug, and the resulting explosion consumes the air, forcing the piston down, turning the crankshaft, and ultimately the wheels. To increase the energy/horsepower that gets released during detonation, you simply have to add a high volume of cold air to the fuel/air mix. The additional oxygen molecules inside the cold air will cause a more forceful detonation, which allows the Ford Mustang V6 to create more power from roughly the same amount of fuel. The AIRAID 452-245 MXP performance intake is designed to deliver a steady supply of cold air to the engine.
Utilizing the stock intake location, the AIRAID 452-245 MXP intake replaces the restricted factory air box with a free-flowing synthetic AIRAID performance air filter, surrounded by a self-sealing heat shield. When the hood is closed, a special strip of heat-resistant weather stripping seals against the underside of the hood to prevent warm engine bay air from entering the system. This allows the oversized SynthaMax filter to collect the coldest air coming up from beneath engine bay. That air is then cleaned by the dual-layer synthetic filter media, and the dirt is stored inside the material to prevent clogging (it only needs to be cleaned every 30,000-50,000 miles, depending on road conditions). The clean air is then funneled to the engine through a wide-diameter AIRAID intake tube, that's been roto-molded to reduce turbulence and smooth out the airflow. It also has integrated fittings for the factory mass air flow (MAF) sensor and PCV vent tube. Thanks to its innovative design, this AIRAID cold air intake can be installed in about 90 minutes, using just simple hand tools.
