no need to post this in more than one forum. especially when everyone in your intro thread said to skip the 73mm mass air system



I don't own a mustang at the moment

NOT good. if you can change your order, do so. if not, when it arrives, only install the filter and the induction piping, save the sensor for later

cai + duals won't give you +20 hp. what they will do is allow your pony to breathe better, setting the stage for future mods. they will give you 10-12 hp at most, as well as a pleasant sounding mustang. throw in an underdrive pulley and you might see as much as 15-17 hp total. still a good start

also, remember to check cali emissions laws to see what exhaust setups will be legal there. i know for a fact that long tube headers aren't street legal in cali, as well as certain flow thru muffler systems... but you shouldn't have any problems having a set of gt takeoffs put on, that shouldn't cost you more than $500 all said

hope that was helpful
