For the first time in nearly thirty years, Ford is offering a turbocharged inline-four cylinder engine in the 2015 Ford Mustang EcoBoost. Contrary to most auto makers’ engine line ups, due to an increase in horsepower, torque, and fuel economy, the Ford 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 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 an AEM 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. Because of this fact, AEM works to develop cold air intake systems to eliminate restrictive factory intake tubing, sound baffling, and the stock 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 boost horsepower, torque and acceleration of 2015 Ford Mustang 2.3L EcoBoost models.
AEM engineers’ goal during air intake system development is to deliver as much airflow as the engine can use quickly and with the fewest bends possible. The pleated design of an AEM Dryflow air filter, along with the smooth inner surface of an AEM mandrel-bent aluminum air intake tube, helps to reduce turbulent airflow to promote more efficient combustion and increased power. In addition to an increase in airflow and reduced restriction AEM strives to provide cool, dense, air to aid in enhanced performance through improved combustion. The AEM Ford Mustang 2.3L EcoBoost air intake 21-740C includes an application specific powder coated heat shield designed to seal against the Mustang’s hood to help block hot air rising off the exhaust manifold from entering the air filter.
AEM air intake systems undergo in-house dyno testing to provide estimated horsepower and torque gains that can be achieved by installing an AEM cold air intake. Dyno testing of the AEM 2015 Ford Mustang 2.3L EcoBoost air intake showed an estimated increase of 12 horsepower and 17 lb-ft of torque at a commonly used 3,600 RPM to the rear wheels. This is an even more impressive number when you consider that power losses incurred through the drivetrain yielded just 219 of the 310 stock ponies making it to the wheels.
Increasing performance with an AEM air intake system 21-740C will not put 2015 Ford Mustang 2.3L EcoBoost models at risk. AEM air intake systems and AEM Dryflow air filters are designed and tested to provide high-airflow and increased performance without sacrificing filtration efficiency or engine protection. AEM Dryflow air filters are built with a non-woven synthetic air filter media pleated between coated wire mesh. Non-oiled AEM Dryflow air filters are designed for easy cleaning and durable service without the need for air filter oil. AEM Induction Systems stands behind its products with a Lifetime Limited Warranty and the ability to wash and reuse an AEM Dryflow air filter means it will be the last air filter that 2015 Ford Mustang EcoBoost owners will need to purchase.
The AEM air intake system for 2015 Ford Mustang 2.3L EcoBoost models comes complete with all the necessary hardware and step by step installation instructions. In around 90 minutes or less AEM air intake 21-740C can be installed on your 2015 Ford Mustang 2.3L L4 Turbo.
