You may or may not witness the maximum published gains from this air intake.Mishimoto does not recommend using this product with an aftermarket downpipe or cat-back exhaust, when used on the stock engine tune. Mishimoto recommends aftermarket engine tuning provisions if used with an aftermarket downpipe.

 

 

 

We know performance is important to your EcoBoost Mustang, which is why Mishimoto is proud to introduce a line of direct-fit and highly-efficient 2015 Mustang parts, including this EcoBoost Mustang performance air intake engineered specifically for the 2015 Ford Mustang EcoBoost. This Mustang air intake features numerous innovative components, including a wire-reinforced turbo inlet hose that will not collapse under suction and boost and prevent the intake pipe from the dreaded heat-soak. The 2015 Mustang EcoBoost air intake is safe to use with the stock tune as it will not hurt air / fuel ratios under load. The air intake also has a unique and aggressive tone under acceleration and boost, and the free-flowing design amplifies turbocharger spool and BPV sounds. Check out the testing video to hear the tone.The stock intake duct is utilized to provide cool airflow to the high-flow Mishimoto oiled air filter, which features increased filtration surface area compared to the stock paper filter. This filter can be cleaned and reused, providing a lifetime of service. The 2015 Mustang air intake includes an enclosed airbox that collects all of the cold outside air from the front of the engine. The airbox also protects against engine bay heat-soak, and it provides a stock-like engine bay appearance. This unit is a complete bolt-on that functions perfectly with the stock tune and can be installed in one hour using common hand tools. Available with either a polished aluminum or wrinkle black pipe, this kit, along with all our other EcoBoost Mustang parts, includes the Mishimoto Lifetime Warranty, ensuring superior product quality and craftsmanship. Check out our other 2015 Mustang parts here to help you keep pushing the limits, on and off the track.

THE ECOBOOST INTAKE PROJECT, PART 2: PROTOTYPE PIPING

With the stock unit out of the way we could begin developing our intake piping. We would be starting at the turbocharger and working outward to an airbox near the stock location.

Using the dimensions from the stock unit, we developed a 3D model of an inlet hose that would be constructed from a silicone material. After completing the model, we produced a unit using our 3D printer.

Because this piece is larger than the bay of our 3D printer, it was constructed from three sections that were glued together. Check out the final design!

This unit has a shape that is similar to the factory unit. We also incorporated both the BPV and the CCV ports, which allow for connection to the OEM pieces. This unit will install just like the factory piping.

This component would be constructed from wire-reinforced silicone. The internal steel wire is in place to prevent collapse under vacuum and suction. Our CCV and BPV ports will be CNC-machined aluminum pieces that will be molded into the silicone hose, creating a leak-free seal. Additionally, using silicone for this inlet portion will allow engine twisting under load.

Check out our WRX induction hose that features this wire-reinforced silicone.

Next, we installed this component to check fitment so we could begin mocking up the rest of the piping.

We then began fabricating the piping that would lead to an airbox location on the driver side of the engine bay.

The only addition still needed for this pipe was an IAT (intake air temperature) sensor bung that would function with the stock sensor. We were pleased with the pipe and routing, so we placed this unit on our CMM (coordinate measuring machine) table to collect dimensions for a 3D model of the pipe we created for this kit.

Now, all we had left was to create the airbox we envisioned at the start of this project. Check back with us next time for a look at how we designed it! For now, we leave you with a teaser rendering of this setup.

THE ECOBOOST INTAKE PROJECT, PART 3: AIRBOX DESIGN

Last time we covered the design of our intake pipe and left you with a look at our airbox design in the form of a rendering. It’s time to show you how we developed this component.

First, we started with some steel and began selecting mounting points for attaching our box. Once we found these points, we pulled out the welder and began fabricating a prototype.

We then constructed a lid to fully seal the filter from engine bay temperatures.

Now that we had a basic design, our engineering team put this into Solidworks to create the awesome 3D renderings shown below.

We didn’t stop here! To ensure the perfect fitment of this component, we used our 3D printer to construct an actual prototype from our 3D renderings. This unit was printed in several sections and glued together. The external ribs you see running across the surface are specifically included to strengthen the plastic construction. They will not be needed in the final airbox design.

THE ECOBOOST INTAKE PROJECT, PART 4: TESTING DATA & FINAL PRODUCT

After wrapping up the design of our intake for the 2015, it was time to put the car on the rollers to see if we were making any power gains. As mentioned earlier in this series, we believed that significant power gains were unlikely due to the MAP-based ECU, which is not normally affected by modified intake systems.

Dyno Testing

With that in mind, we strapped the Mustang down and made a few pulls.

Testing Results

After making several pulls with both the stock intake and Mishimoto intake, we averaged the runs, and the results are shown in the plot below.

Dyno results for Mishimoto and stock intakes

Although we were a bit skeptical about power gains for this vehicle, we did end up with some nice increases throughout most of the RPM range. These gains are likely due to the reduced restriction caused by the stock airbox system. We saw 4–8 whp gains from about 3,500 rpm through redline. Torque benefits were similar and peaked around 9 wtq at 5,500 rpm.

It is extremely likely that additional modifications and tuning will provide even greater gains with our intake system, thanks to the free-flowing filter and piping design.

We are very pleased with these results. Not only did the vehicle make some decent power gains, but we also really liked the improved tone provided by the intake setup. Spool noise is greatly amplified and sounds terrific both inside and outside of the vehicle.

Filter Surface Area

Along with dyno pulls, we performed some comparison analyses of the stock air filter versus the Mishimoto unit we would be using with our kit.

Comparison of air filter surface areas
Comparison of air filter surface areas

Air filter surface area is one of the features we like to compare when looking at the stock intake system. So what is the benefit of greater surface area? Greater filter surface area significantly increases the potential CFM of our filter. More air passages will provide less restrictions, especially for modified vehicles moving more air than a stock vehicle.

Silicone Inlet Hose

Another interesting update for this project is the arrival of our final prototype for the silicone inlet hose. We have been discussing this part for quite some time, and we have posted some 3D-printed prototype images. Check out this unit in its final form!

A few details about this pipe. This unit is constructed from mandrel-bent aluminum, and it features smooth bends to route air from our airbox to the turbocharger inlet. We utilize a bracket to stabilize the pipe and prevent vibration. The bung mounted to the top of the pipe mates perfectly with the stock sensor for the intake air temperature (IAT).

Not a fan of the polished look? Don’t worry, we will be offering this piping in a wrinkle black finish as well. We are also considering a blue (Ford) finish of some sort, so let us know if this interests you and perhaps we can give it a run!

We finish off the end of this piping with our Mishimoto oiled air filter.

Completed Airbox

The airbox is a key component that helps reduce the effect of engine bay heat on our filter and on air temperatures. You saw our 3D-printed unit earlier; check out the final design below.

We also created an easily removable lid for servicing of the filter.

This box is constructed from powder-coated steel and works to properly isolate the air filter. This unit mounts to existing points within the engine bay and provides a stock-like appearance.
