Installing Steeda’s Pro Flow cold-air intake for the 2015 Mustang GT
By Steve Turner
Despite all the advancements found in the latest Mustangs, the tried and true hot-rodding techniques still work. Fortunately for those of us that like to play with cars, easy bolt-on parts still provide gains, which makes for fun and satisfying driveway work for do-it-yourself enthusiasts.
One of the most popular mods for a modern Mustang is a cold air intake, and one of the latest versions available for the 2015 Mustang is from Steeda. The company really took its time refining the product to ensure that the fit, finish, and performance were up to the standards of its customers.
“This Steeda ProFlow Mustang Cold Air Intake for 2015 Mustang GT Manual opens up the intake system of Ford’s new 5.0-liter power plant and allows it to breathe much more freely than the stock intake system allows—taking your 2015 GT Mustang to the next level of performance,” says the company. “Our engineers started with a large surface area high-flow, nano-fiber air filter, added our famous, ‘race-tested’ velocity stack entry and then designed a black powder-coated heat shield with a durable rubber gasket to seal the shield against the vehicle’s hood.”
We made a trip up to the company’s Valdosta, Georgia, manufacturing facility to catch some of its new S550 parts coming right off the production line. While we were there, we documented the installation of the Steeda S550 cold-air intake (PN 555-3193; $394.95). Follow along as Steeda technician Jamie Bell installs the kit and see how easy it is to free up some additional airflow and performance from your new Mustang.
