Steeda Autosports, the world’s largest aftermarket manufacturer of Ford performance equipment is once again leading the performance market with our high-velocity Steeda ProFlow Mustang Cold Air Intake for your 2015-2016 Mustang GT. Several cold air intake manufacturers allow you to run their kit with an included restrictor which doesn’t require a tune (Steeda included) in addition to running a cold air intake kit without a restrictor while paired with a tune, so we performed apples-to-apples testing for both scenarios.
A little bit of background on our Steeda ProFlow Mustang Cold Air Intake for your S550 it opens up the intake system of Ford’s 5.0 powerplant and allows it to breathe much more freely than the stock intake system allows, taking your S550 Mustang GT to the next level of performance. Steeda’s engineers utilized the OE cold air feed and a large surface area high-flow nano-fiber air filter, added our famous ‘race-tested’ velocity stack entry and then designed an advanced heat shield with a durable rubber gasket to seal the shield against the vehicle’s hood. Steeda’s precision CNC mass air housing provides the cleanest mass air signal on the market, resulting in smooth off-throttle to on-throttle response. Steeda’s S550 CAI utilizes a removable restrictor which allows you to benefit from immediate hp/tq gains, without a tune! If you’re looking to squeeze out even more power from Steeda’s S550 cold air intake, we offer a tune that allows you to run it without the restrictor.
