People will argue that a intake is just a intake and they all get the same results. SR has some of the best results. AM does not post hp/tq results from v-6 intakes.

An intake without a professional data logged tune is just a piece of pipe with a filter made to look good. No significant gains. Now if you have a dyno of a stock air box and a CIA, I'll believe it

Here you go Cold Air Intakes Mythbusted - YouTube
The Mustang v-6 has a pretty good air intake system. A better filter is usually all you need. I like CIAs.
Nothing surprised me from this video. Note, in the beginning he said the factory intake gets cold air.
They used a short air intake and it does not get denser(cold) air when it is trapped in the engine bay. Putting a box around it and restricting air flow will not help. Most people who put boxes around intakes have a sufficient external source of air. If not, they are stupid and so is the manufacture. There are small gains if done properly. If the CAI would have been put through the fender well with cold air from wind the 1.7 gain would be there. Just like the umbilical CAI. Most market horsepower is gained from perfect conditions and more mods. Most companies expect you to know that more mods were done to the vehicle besides a cold air intake.
More air in +more air out + more fuel =more hp
Gravity is in space. A very small amount, but it is there . Could you fool the average person about gravity in space?
. I add this because of the companies disclaimer.

Just pull off the silencers and put a k&n filter in. Much less hassle than the sr one. It doesn't fit as good as the oem airbox.

My friend put PVC piping in his air intake and it started to melt. I would never do that

i've never once seen that happen but i guess accidents happen. we even used pvc on a friends mammoth intake on his cobra with no issue. also did your friend leave the pvc as is or did he paint it with engine enamel? we always coat them with that stuff because it not only looks better but protects upwards of 600 degrees.

He's an idiot and painted it with normal spray paint. The intake on his escort has way too many bends for him to use all the PVC he did
