Ecoboost Cold Air Intake
MAPerformance has recently taken to the domestic performance market with it's new line of Ecoboost Mustang Parts! A full line of performance Ford Mustang Ecoboost parts and accessories is coming soon, so keep an eye on the Ecoboost Mustang Parts Development Thread for release information and dyno testing!
Air Intakes do a few things for your vehicle. Not only do they replace the unattractive factory airbox system , but they also increases air flow to the turbocharger. This results in an increase in power and torque, throttle response, and engine noise upon acceleration - three things every Ecoboost Mustang owner loves!
A Ford Ecoboost Mustang Intake system by MAP will do all of the things mentioned above. Removal of your OEM Ford airbox opens up extra space in the engine bay for optional mods such as Intercooler Piping, and the larger high performance Air Filter allows for optimal filtration and long lasting life. Silicone couplers attach the intake piping to the throttle body via the included clamps making this a quick and easy installation.

Great intake difference in power is noticeable kind of a pain to install but with some help it can be done quickly. What they don’t say in the video is the filter dosent slide on the pipe like in the video so you can’t install it easy the way they do it.
To fit on a 2018 you have to remove 1 of the 2 horns and the horn bracket will still hit the filter other then that, looks and sound great. Very high quality and happy with it
I actually got the CAI second hand, but I thought I'd leave a review. This CAI has its Pros and Cons.
Pros: It is a quality build, and looks awesome under the hood (mine is stainless steel, not powder coated). If you're into intake sounds, this CAI makes a lot of it. It sounds awesome when you give it throttle because you can hear the CAI pulling in air. My Inlet Air Temps stay at ambient air temps or 1-2 degrees above while driving. It heat soaks in stop and go traffic but quickly cools down to ambient when cruising, and I'm sure it helps that the inlet is behind the headlight, further away from the engine, unlike some other CAIs. Also, I have the Ford Performance tune and this CAI works perfectly fine, no check engine lights or anything, which was a concern I had.
Cons: For me, the CAI was a pain to install. It took me way longer than I thought to install. I thought it would have taken me 45 mins- 1 hour, but it took more like 1 1/2 hours- 2 1/2 hours. What took so long was getting the intake tube to fit and getting the filter on. When putting the filter behind the headlight, then trying to maneuver the intake tube to connect to the turbo, I kept hitting the filter and it would fall down to the splash guard floor, which then required me to disconnect the tube from the turbo in order to be able to reach the filter. Eventually I was able to get it installed but it makes me dread having to uninstall it just to clean the filter. I wish there was a simpler way to get the filter on and off without having to uninstall the whole CAI.
Tip when installing: Don't try to connect the tube to the turbo with the rubber coupling already attached to the tube, instead, attache the rubber coupling to the turbo first, then attache the tube to the coupling. As far as keeping the filter from falling, it helps to have a second pair of hands to hold it in place, while you maneuver the intake tube.
Easy install. Did it in my apartment parking lot in about an hour with basic hand tools. I have noticed the intake doesn't heat soak and it looks good in raw steel under the hood.
Love the sound of the turbo. Very high quality piece and fast shipping as well.
I was hesitant on my purchase at first. But if your like me go for it and just buy it already. I had a full Turboback on my car and the intake sound now is equally as loud as my exhaust. The spool sound cannot be explained. It sounds amazing. And for power gains I have seen some gains. I’m sure once I get an intercooler boost pipes and a tune it will be quite the different beast.
