Steeda Autosports, the World’s largest aftermarket manufacturer of Ford performance equipment is once again leading the performance market with their Cold Air Intake (CAI) specially made for the all new 2011 5.0L Mustang. 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. Their engineers started with a large surface area high-flow nano-fiber air filter, added their famous “race-tested” velocity stack intake and then designed a stainless steel heat shield with durable rubber gasket to seal the shield against the vehicle’s hood. Next they increased the MAF housing size to 95mm and coupled it to a new higher flowing Pro-Flow inlet hose with their Cool-Tube Technology. You would think this is more than enough, but they 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. Last but not least they engineered their CAI to accept the stock factory lower cold air scoop so that the coolest and densest air charge possible would flow into the intake.

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 their customers with only the very best products, Steeda has partnered with the leader in automotive tuning – SCT Automotive Performance Products. They worked closely with SCT’s President, Chris Johnson and developed a specialized tune for the new 5.0L powertrain with their cold air intake. As you can imagine, Chris knows a few things about tuning, and with the robust features of their state-of-the-art X3 Flash Programmer, this custom tune combined with our Cold Air Intake, the power increase is dramatic – 44hp and 52 ft.lbs. of torque at the wheels!! Another key point to consider is that while these are peak numbers, the actual power increase is spread throughout the entire rpm range so your increased performance is available on demand in the instant you need it most!

Why did Steeda strategically aligned themselves with SCT Automotive Performance Products and utilize their X3 Flash Programmer? The answer is simple, SCT has the best flash tools in the business today as they employ the latest flash technology. With features like the ability to store up to 3 custom tunes, and an abundant amount of end user adjustable features including datalogging. There is simply no better performance tune or device available today for the Mustang than the SCT lineup!
