Re: cold air intake

1. Might as well.
2. 5-10 probably
3. Yes. Entirely too much. Although you do live in Jersey so things may be a bit more expensive but I would do some shopping first.

Re: cold air intake

yea i thought it might be to much for exhaust. a guy said i cant do dual on my car cuz of the mufflers. i was like in my head ok. then he said u can put flowmaster on there for 150 single. i dont think i want that. it would prob be crap single. u think ebay would be ok for cold air intake?

Re: cold air intake

i have seen their quality first hand, dont buy one. Some have even had the end of their air filter fall off so they were sucking in unfiltered air....

Re: cold air intake

lol, a shop once told me i couldnt put dual's on my car because the fuel line was different on the v6 and GT/cobra. I laughed, left, and took my business elsewhere.

I bought a cai from e-bay and it works great. Yeah, $560 is way to much for true duals. I had a local exhaust shop run true duals on my 97 v6 for $220. Dont let anyone tell you that it cant be done because they are full of it, they just didnt want to do it.

The only thing about the E-bay CAI is the filter sucks. I know from experience (yes, i had a honda civic once-dont hate me for it). Once that one wears out, upgrade to a K&N. Other than that, the piping is great, I had no problems.

Re: cold air intake

I also bought a CAI from ebay and I'm satisfied w/ it. I had chrome tubing and an actual K & N filter. I've had it for about a year and there's rusting on the tubing now but it still works well. I gained about 2 lengths @ the 1/4 mile.

Oh? Lucky you, I can't finda ****ing shop in the state of MN who claims that true Dual Cat exhaust is even possible on a V6 Mustang. Im sure I haven't checked everywhere... but seriously I have called about 10 shops.

Re: cold air intake

I have had people tell me exhaust shops wont put duals on a v6 for that fuel line crap. I've had duals on mine for 4.5 years now and no boom!!

Re: cold air intake

I had a true dual on my car when I bought it. The person before me had taken the down pipes or Y pipe, from the headers and cut them and had a shop weld on an extension to the down pipes with the cats and bolted a GT flowmaster kit on to the set up. A lot of the kits sold are from the Y pipe and then the exhuast splits into dual. If you really want to gain some power, get some long tube headers, and look for a shop that will fabricate the piping for you to hook up to a GT catback system. Now if you plan on turbocharging your car like me later on then you may want to ask a turbo guy what kinda exhaust will get you the most flow and quickest spooling. Look at what your plans are and see what will work best so you dont redo everything and spend more money you could use on something else.

Re: cold air intake

That sucks but thats what I got. Y pipe has been cut and all fabricated pipe all the way out the back with stainless steel tips. Just a thought start asking some of your buddies in the area there is always some small town shop or backyard mechanic that could do it for you. You could start checking junk yards and e-bay for some gt take offs. This would make it alot easier alot less bending. Good luck with it.
