Friendly correction, its 'intake' as in 'air intake'. I'd recommend staying away from SR and BBK. BBK is subpar and SR is garbage. Usually Airaid, JLT, and Steeda CAI's make the most power (Steeda being my favorite).

I know for $200 it looks like you're not getting much, but I think you should go with the Steeda CAI as I couldn't find Airaid's or JLT's CAI's for the 99-04 V6. I'd also recommend getting a handheld tuner + custom tune. Without one, CAI's really don't gain much at all. The tune really makes the car a whole new beast (DEFINITELY worth the $400).

Ok I'd love to buy the recommended intake, it looks like it's the filter right! Do I also need to buy the tube? That would be aluminum and not plastic like in stock? Or does it come with it here?

Just double checking if right site btw
And what does the tuner do? How do I use it?

Thanks for helping!

I believe the Steeda CAI reuses the factory intake tube, so you wouldn't have to buy a new one. The tuner is real simple. After you've ordered it and received it, you just plug it into your OBDII plug under your steering wheel and go through a menu to tune your Mustang. A process that should only take 5 minutes or less (literally).

If you'd like to know more about CAI's and what you're potentially about to spend $200 on and why the Steeda one cost $200, give Steeda's blog post a read below. Its some good info.

The Roush intakes are just the Airaid intakes re-branded so yes they're some of the better CAI's on the market.

Well watch mighty car mods on air intakes. They don't really improve much. I'm sure that like mentioned under reprogramming circumstances it will change a small percent.

I have seen that. But I don't think their skyline had a mass airflow sensor. I've read how those can make the engine adapt just a bit to add 5-8 hp and some torque. But I hear the best thing is to just run a tune.

Mods' results vary greatly on different cars/setups. I don't care ab Skyline's or such. What you need to watch are Mustang dyno videos or write-ups of before and after.

I know they differ I just mean it's blunt way of looking at it. And you're right it probably doesn't have a maf.
