The sixth generation 2015 Ford Mustang has broken the mold of what consumers expect from Ford’s classic Pony Car. The sixth generation 2015 Mustang has been designed on a global platform intended for world-wide export as left or right hand drive and 2015 Ford Mustang models feature a fully independent rear suspension. This new independent rear suspension brings Mustang handling, and road manners, up to par with the far more expensive cars it must compete against throughout Europe. Also, for the first time in nearly thirty years, Ford is offering a turbocharged inline-four cylinder engine in the Mustang. Luckily the 5.0L V8 Coyote motor still remains as the 2015 Ford Mustang GT’s go to power plant. The 2015 Ford Mustang GT 5.0L boasts an incredible 435 peak horsepower, yet 2015 Ford Mustang owners are able to easily increase the 5.0 V8 engine’s performance with an AEM air intake system.

Most often, the factory air intake tubing, stock air filter box, and disposable air filter is a significant point of restriction in modern fuel injected cars or trucks. The 2015 Ford Mustang 5.0L isn’t immune to this restriction in factory trim, so AEM has developed an air intake system that eliminates the restrictive factory intake tube, sound baffling, and air filter box. By replacing restrictive factory components with a charcoal gray powder coated mandrel bent aluminum air intake tube coupled to an open element AEM Dryflow synthetic air filter and protected by an application specific air filter heat shield, AEM is able to increase horsepower, torque and acceleration of 2015 Ford Mustang GT 5.0L V8 models.

The 2015 Ford Mustang GT 5.0L AEM air intake system is designed to deliver as much unrestricted air as the engine can use quickly and with the fewest bends possible. An AEM Dryflow air filter’s pleated design, along with the mandrel-bent aluminum intake tube’s smooth inner surface, helps to reduce turbulent airflow to promote more efficient combustion and increased power. The increase in airflow and reduced restriction of the AEM 2015 Ford Mustang GT 5.0L air intake is combined with an application specific powder coated heat shield which seals against the car’s hood to help blocks hot air rising off the exhaust manifold from entering the air filter. Cool, dense, air also aids in enhanced performance through improved combustion.

In-house dyno testing shows that AEM air intake system 21-745C improves horsepower and torque output of the 2015 Ford Mustang GT 5.0L across the entire RPM range. The meat of the RPM range commonly used for any type of acceleration or passing, between 4,000 and 6,000 RPM, is where the AEM 2015 Ford Mustang 5.0L air intake really shines. Peak estimated horsepower and torque gains came on at 4,500 RPM when installed on an otherwise stock 2015 Ford Mustang 5.0. At 4,500 RPM the AEM air intake 21-745C was shown to provide an estimated additional 12 horsepower and 14 lb-ft of torque at the rear wheels. This is an even more impressive number when you consider that power losses incurred through the drivetrain yielded just 310 of the 435 stock ponies making it to the wheels.
