Steeda 2011+ Mustang V6 Intake

Steeda Autosports, the world’s largest aftermarket manufacturer of Ford performance equipment, has introduced their new High Velocity Cold Air Intake for the 2011+ Mustang V6. The intake was designed using CAD data supplied exclusively by Ford Motor Company via Steeda’s Technology Transfer program with Ford engineers. The high performance CAI effectively opens up the intake system of Ford’s new 3.7L power plant and allows it to breath much more freely than the stock intake system allows, taking the 2011 3.7L V6 Mustang to the next level of performance.

The 2011 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. Their engineers started with a large surface area high-flow nano-fiber air filter, added their 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 Steeda increased the MAF housing size and coupled it to a new higher flowing Pro-Flow inlet hose with their Cool-Tube Technology.

To ensure the densest air charge possible Steeda retained the factory cold air feed ducting from the front bumper. Steeda was the first company to do this starting in 2010 with their 2010 GT intake and have carried this innovation over to the 2011 model. Steeda 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, Steeda’s 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 3.7L engine that a performance tune is not just recommended, it is required for maximum performance. Combined with the required custom tune using an SCT X3 Flash programming device, Steeda have achieved power increases of up to 20hp and 30ft/lbs of torque.

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