More Power for Your Pony: Easy Bolt-on Solutions for Your S197 Mustang 1
From experience, we have learned that Mustangs respond well to free-flowing induction systems. Since the 2010 GT is factory equipped with a "cold air" induction that contributes to its increase in output, we weren't sure if there was room for improvement. BBK Performance answered the challenge and provided its new cold air intake for the 2010 GT.
BBK designed its kit to eliminate the need to re-flash the computer, which saves considerable cash in the installation process. Installation is elementary, requiring little more than a screwdriver. In a few minutes, GTR had the BBK intake in place and ready to rock the dyno.
GTR let our tester rip to 6,000 rpm and reviewed the results. The GT now rested at peak figures of 275 RWHP and 280 RWTQ, which netted peak-to-peak gains of 7 RWHP and 10 RWTQ. More impressive were the largest overall gains of 10 RWHP and 12 RWTQ, both at 4,000 rpm. Considering the healthy power gains and ease of installation, the BBK cold air kit should be first on your shopping list.
