There are those among us who favor the style and looks of classic cars, but prefer modern technology and comforts to the primitive engines and refinements of ages past. One innovation that has spread like wildfire is the lightweight carbon fiber, which is applied to everything from hoods to oil temperature gauges.

AIRAID Intake Systems has teamed up with famed Ford driver Parnelli Jones to offer a limited carbon fiber intake system that is only available custom ordered through AIRAID itself.

Featuring Jones’ name and signature, the AIRAID carbon fiber intake is built using real carbon fiber, not some cheap imitation plastic. Design for use on the 2012 Ford Mustang Boss 302, the Parnelli Jones carbon fiber intake features a 4.25” diameter tube and a 1300 cfm air filter. According to AIRAID, this intake adds up to 19 additional horsepower and 12 ft-lbs of torque to the already-impressive Boss 302 Mustang.

Several new features, like a new roto-molded Cold Air Box, help take in more air, via a urethane “hump box.” The box is designed to keep air from the hot engine bay away, allowing more of the dense, cool air to enter the engine. It’s a great piece for any fan of Parnelli Jones and the Boss 302 Mustang. Check out all the details in the press release below.

AIRAID Shows the Mustang Who’s Boss with the Parnelli Jones Edition Intake System
The muscle car wars are back in full swing, and Ford has thrown down the gauntlet with the new 2012 Mustang Boss 302. Optimized for performance and tuned for the track, the Boss is a high performanc emachine built for hardcore enthusiasts. Now AIRAID has teamed up with legendary Boss racing champion Parnelli Jones to release a special edition MXP-Series Carbon Fiber Intake System for the2012 Mustang Boss.Parnelli Jones raced the original Mustang Boss to a Trans Am Championship in 1970, so he knows a thing or two about Mustangs and how to make power. AIRAID’s newest MXP-Series Intake System is a tribute to Parnelli’s devotion to power and performance by providing up to 19 additional horsepower& 12ft-lbs of torque. Like all of AIRAID’s MXP-Series Intake Kits, no special tuning is required and theinstallation is a simple bolt-on procedure.

The AIRAID system starts with a real carbon fiber 4.25” diameter intake tube. This is not some cheap imitation piece; it is real carbon fiber that adds a show-quality look to the engine compartment. It features a stack to increase airflow and incorporates a special billet plate that accepts the factory MAF sensor. The Intake Tube connects to AIRAID’s new one-piece roto-molded Cold Air Box via a urethane “humphose” and stainless steel clamps. The box is designed to keep hot engine compartment air away from the filter while increasing the amount of cold air available and even utilizes the factory cold air scoop.Blade-style weatherstripping seals the air box to the hood, further eliminating hot air.

The heart of AIRAID’s MXP Intake System for the Mustang Boss is the massive 1300-cfm air filter,which provides the engine with a steady supply of clean, cold air. The filter is available in either the company’s SynthaFlow® composite material or SynthaMax® non-oiled filtration technology. Both filters are constructed with a special blend of urethane that will not crack or warp, and both are washable andre-usable.

This system includes all of the necessary hardware and uses factory mounting points for an easy installation. Like the rest of AIRAID’s extensive product line, this new MXP-Series Carbon Fiber Intake System is made in the USA and backed by the company’s “No Hassle” warranty.
