AIRAID may call this air intake system "Classic", but don't think there's anything outdated about it. The system installs in place of your OEM air filter box and air inlet tube, and it's computer designed to provide maximum airflow. And maximum airflow means more horsepower, torque and improved performance. But AIRAID doesn't rely on design alone; they dyno test their designs and fine tune each system for maximum performance and efficiency.
The increased airflow starts with the AIRAID SynthaFlow or SynthaMax air filters. Each is over 99% efficient, meaning it allows more airflow while filtering out dirt particles ordinary filters let pass. You get better performance without sacrificing air filtration.
The SynthaFlow filter is a cotton-gauze and synthetic blend that outperforms plain cotton-gauze in clean air testing. The SynthaFlow features "five layer" filtration, with 4 layers of cotton-gauze supplemented by "the last layer of defense", a layer of synthetic media that produces the cleanest air of any washable filter. The filtering media is held together by epoxy coated aluminum wire mesh, specially designed to provide the optimum balance between maximum airflow and peak filtration.
The SynthaMax filter is 100% synthetic, with an inner filter media consisting of two distinct layers of specifically designed synthetic materials that have separate performance characteristics. These layers are designed to work together to provide outstanding airflow and exceptionally high filtration. Contaminants are first captured by the outer layer of synthetic needlefelt polyester material, designed for wet and dry filtration with high airflow capacity. The inner layer of rayon/polyester captures any remaining contaminants while maintaining high airflow and low restriction. The inner filter media is supported by an inner and outer layer of wire mesh for strength and durability.
From the air filter, airflow is channeled to the engine through a mandrel bent, powder coated air intake tube. The shape of the tube is computer designed for maximum airflow, but AIRAID also powder coats both the outside and inside of the tube to further increase flow. And you'll love the way the AIRAID filter and powder coated intake tube enhance the appearance under the hood.
The Classic Air Intake System comes complete with everything necessary for installation, including comprehensive instructions. And it's backed by AIRAID's "No Hassle" warranty. There are no limitations or fine print here. Simply, if you're ever dissatisfied with the materials, workmanship, or performance of this air intake system, just send it back... period! You don't have to worry about a proof of purchase or a warranty card. AIRAID air intake systems are warranted for life.279.90 287.90
Brand: Airaid Part Numbers:
AIRAID® was founded in 1997 when they began developing and manufacturing air intake systems for light trucks and SUVs, utilizing the cotton-gauze filter technology that was available at the time. These systems increased airflow and performance while being easy to install, and sold so well that the company soon realized that another source of filters was necessary. They believed they could produce a better quality filter using new technology and state-of-the-art materials, and so in 2002 the AIRAID Filter Company was formed. Today AIRAID is the recognized leader in air management technology. Extensive research and development has allowed AIRAID to come to market first with high quality products that improve drivability and performance.AIRAID® - Classic Air Intake System Reviews (10)Customers' rating: 5 OF 5APPEARANCEEASE OF INSTALLATIONPRICE/VALUEQUALITY(5)APPEARANCEEASE OF INSTALLATIONPRICE/VALUEQUALITYMy Airaid Intake System| Posted by Charles R.

Putting the Airaid system on my F-150 5.0L was almost like putting a turbo charger on it. I think the 5.0L would be a good contender against Ford's 6-cylinder EcoBoost. Putting a chip in the 5.0L would really boost it, because the 5.0L in the Mustang is over 400 hp.Was this review helpful for you?

This product can be characterized by saying that it was an easy installation that provided a noticeable increase in performance. It doesn't help with fuel economy very much because who can resist the urge to put the pedal to the metal!Was this review helpful for you?

Intake is great and sounds great. To be honest I have drove it harder than before, and still am getting a mpg better. When I baby it, I can get about 2.5 mpg better. But it's hard to stay out of the throttle.Was this review helpful for you?

I bought this air intake off of CARiD after much research and it was worth it! It did not take long to install and it looks great. It uses a lot of the factory parts that are already installed so there is not much work to be done. Overall, it's a great intake and it sounds amazing.Was this review helpful for you?

I installed the new cold air intake system, and it is so great. My horse power is up and the fuel miles is lot better.

The AirAid unit was well packaged, the instructions were accurate and concise, and in general, the unit was very easy to install. The filter, itself, looks to be at least twice the size of the stock filter. I've driven about 300 miles with the filter so far and have noticed a slight increases in power and gas mileage.Was this review helpful for you?

This thing was great to install! Could not have been any easier. I had the whole thing done in less than 20 minutes! Have not put many miles on since install but can tell the engine runs smoother and it appears that the MPG has increased by at least 3. Definitely recommend this!!Was this review helpful for you?

I was very impressed with the product when I opened the box and found a much heaver metal tube than expected. The other components were far better than a competitor I just installed on anther vehicle last year. Due to past experience, I had a few extra parts and tools around which came in handy. The first issue I ran into was the supplied bolds and nuts, which had a 50/50 chance of their threads matching and after the first bolt snapped trying to unscrew the hand tightened nut and the second bolt ripped apart when tightening with a pliers and hand driver, I switched to a heavier grade that I had in the garage. This did create a bit of frustration and colorful language and I would recommend in the future looking at better quality bolts. The only other issue was the need to cut down a hose length to properly fit the 4.6L which is far better than dealing with a hose too short. For my application, this was a noticeable benefit to the performance of the vehicle and I would highly recommend to a friend or associate.Was this review helpful for you?

The AIRAID throttle body spacer was a simple addition. Myself not knowing much about mechanical issues, the installation was simple. The only problem was the instructions were a little difficult to follow. I suppose better diagrams would help. All in all the item was easy to install and I will be monitoring fuel efficiency and torque gainWas this review helpful for you?

I just installed this product on my 2010 F 150. It is the only engine mod I have, and I gained 94 miles per tank. I only took me 12 minutes to install. I would recommend this product to anyone who likes to spend less money on gas.Was this review helpful for you? YesNo
