Default Cold Air Intake

Are there any aftermarket cold air intake kits for the 2013 3.5L out there, looking for a little more HP if it is available?

me too. air raid is the one i am leaning towards right now. i just go the 2013 Taurus Limited, and it's pretty new in general. i'm going to wait and see what else comes out for NON-SHO cars.

Honestly fellas with CAI's hp gains really aren't there. mostly just fluff and sound, While I don't dispute claims of 5-10 hp gains but thats at peak rpms and if you install CAI kit that doesn't isolate from the heat of the engine compartment you will loose performance.

Tuning is the only thing that will give you power you can feel, but I am not sure if that is option for you or whats available for your cars. I do know its possible there was member on this forum that had his taurus dyno tuned.

More power is there but you will be restricted to premium gas.

I have an 08 taurus SEL and I got a 93 octane tune from 5 Star Tuning. That plus the K&N CAI puts me at 301hp. You should be able to used the 2010 taurus CAI from K&N.
That's what I used.

NPG Racing makes a supercharger kit that can put out at least 500hp on stock internals, (As long as you have the 6f-55 Ford transmission, as the 6f-50 tranny on stock can only handle up to 310hp)
The supercharger kit plus installation runs about 8000$

Right now I sit at about 0-60 in 5.6 seconds on dry pavement.

Do you have a dyno for this?

They do not list the kit for the Taurus.
