Not since the Fox Body Ford Mustang SVO has Ford offered a turbocharged inline-four cylinder engine in its legendary Pony Car. Contrary to most auto makers’ engine line ups, due to an increase in horsepower, torque, and fuel economy, the 2015 Ford Mustang 2.3L EcoBoost four cylinder engine is an upgrade over the standard 300 horsepower V6. Ford engineers managed to squeeze an impressive 310 horsepower and 320 lb-ft of torque from the 2.3L EcoBoost engine while also earning an EPA estimated 31 highway MPG for the 2015 Ford Mustang. Despite the already impressive power numbers of the 2015 Ford Mustang EcoBoost, owners searching for an extra boost in horsepower, torque, and acceleration can easily do so with the installation of a K&N Aircharger air intake system.
Typically, 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, especially those with turbochargers. Because of this fact, K&N has developed an Aircharger air intake system for the 2015 Ford Mustang 2.3L Ecoboost to eliminate restrictive factory components by replacing them with a roto-molded HDPE air intake tube coupled to an open element K&N reusable air filter for superior airflow and superior performance. Additionally, the K&N reusable air filter included with the 2015 Ford Mustang 2.3L EcoBoost intake is protected by an application specific air filter heat shield to help keep inlet air temperatures (IAT) within factory tolerances.
The K&N 2015 Ford Mustang 2.3L Ecoboost air intake system is an easy to install performance upgrade that can be completed in about 90 minutes or less using basic hand tools, and by following K&N’s simple step-by-step instructions. It maintains all necessary factory connections and does not require any additional modifications be made to the vehicle for increased performance. In fact, when installed on an otherwise stock 2015 Ford Mustang 2.3L Ecoboost, the K&N air intake was shown to make impressive performance gains in horsepower and torque throughout the entire RPM range. On the dyno, K&N observed an estimated peak horsepower gain of 15.72 HP at a very usable 4224 rpm. Even more impressive was the estimated additional 19.85 pound-feet of torque at a low 3,778 rpm. Increased power will require the engine to expend less energy to cruise down the highway, improve acceleration, and allow the Ecoboost engine’s turbocharger to spool up faster.
K&N backs its air filters and air intake systems with a 10-year/million mile limited warranty so owners can rest assured that their intake system can stand up to the most demanding drivers. Whether 2015 Ford Mustang Ecoboost owners use their pony car as a fun to drive, fuel efficient daily driver, or for taking on V8 powered cars on the track, the K&N Aircharger Air Intake system will provide increased performance with better engine sound for years to come.
