[MUSIC PLAYING] What's up, guys? Landan with latemodelrestoration.com. Today we're going to be taking a closer look at AIRAID's Cold Air Intake Kit for the 2015 EcoBoost Mustang.

If you're looking to increase horsepower and fuel economy in your EcoBoost Mustang, an AIRAID intake is definitely the route to go. All AIRAID intakes are made right here in the USA. They feature superior quality and are a breeze to install.

This cold air kit for the 2015 EcoBoost Mustang is made from high-density polyethylene that is designed to maintain proper mass airflow readings and calibrations. This tube connects to a one-piece roto molded airbox that outperforms the restrictive factory design. You will also have your choice of a black, red, or blue high flow filter.

Hands down the biggest benefit to this AIRAID Cold Air Kit is the special technology behind it that allows you to bolt it on and go without a custom tune. Now let's go ahead and show you how to install the AIRAID Cold Air Intake Kit onto your 2015 EcoBoost Mustang.

Before installation, disconnect the negative battery cable. To remove the factory intake, start by removing the air temperature sensor connection and push pin on the airbox. Then, loosen the hose clamp that holds the intake tube to the turbo with a 9/32 socket.

With a pair of pliers, squeeze and lift up on the clamp that holds the turbo bypass tube to the stock air inlet. Right below the bypass tube, release the PCV line from the connection, pressing up and out on the small gray tab.

Remove the 10 millimeter bolt that holds the stock airbox to the fender apron, then carefully lift the factory intake out of the car. Be sure to hold on to the 10 millimeter bolt and rubber grommet that is connected to your factory airbox, as it will be transferred to your new AIRAID.

On the stock airbox, carefully turn the air temperature sensor counterclockwise a quarter turn to release it. Then replace the black O-ring with the included light blue one, and transfer it to the AIRAID inlet.

Rotate the temp sensor clockwise until the small tab is flush with the raised edge on the inlet pipe. Using the supplied washer and 3/32 Allen head bolt, secure the air temp sensor to the AIRAID inlet pipe. Install the included rubber grommet and vacuum line fitting into the hole next to the turbo bypass connection.

With three of the nine supplied four millimeter Allen head bolts and washers, install the filter adapter into the AIRAID airbox. Then slide on the silicone reducer onto the turbo side of the AIRAID inlet pipe, and tighten it down with a 5/16 socket.

Loosely tighten down the small hose clamp on the reducer as well. Next, slide a hose clamp over the silicone coupler, and then slide the coupler over the inlet pipe. Tighten the hose clamp with a 5/16 socket.

Slide the last hose clamp on the other end of the coupler and loosely tighten it with a 5/16 socket as well. Install the AIRAID airbox into the car reusing the factory grommet and 10 millimeter bolt. Then slide the AIRAID inlet pipe over the turbo and filter adapter on the airbox, and tighten down those hose clamps.

Reconnect your PCV line and turbo bypass tube. Reconnect your air temp sensor and push pin into the airbox. Install the air filter and tighten the hose clamp with a 5/16 socket.

Remove the protective covering from the clear Plexiglas and metal cover. Align the Plexiglas and metal cutout with the six bolt holes in the airbox. And then tighten them down with the six remaining four millimeter Allen head bolts and washers.

Installation should take you about 15 to 20 minutes and can be done right in your driveway. For everything EcoBoost Mustang, subscribe to our YouTube channel. And pick up your AIRAID intake at latemodelrestoration.com.
