Re: CAI

Why did you buy a 75mm MAF? Was the stock 70mm holding you back? CAI kits only add flash to the engine bay, it will not increase your power or performance in any way.

The main reason was for the maf sensor that came on the top of it. Mine was horrible but the new mass air will actually slide over the throttle body.

Stock is 55mm on the fox body, 70mm came in 94.

Yes I have a fox. However the mass air is a 75 from a 4.6 gt. Its a weird setup but my main question is will a cai fit right on to the mass air or are they size specific? All the ones I've seen look like there just one size fits all type thing

If its not the 4 bolt flange like mine then a fox cai will work fine for it.

Yeah its the 4 bolt, I was told that they make a piece that goes on the flange to connect my filter to at a auto parts store but haven't checked yet

The auto parts stores adapter will work but not well. You may need to purchase one online or go to a local performance shop and buy the correct one. My first adapter came from advance and was undersized.

It only costs around 20-30 for the adapter. I would get the 3" adapter and run the cai.

True cold air intake can improve, but it's VERY minimal. Really only noticeable when lot of power! I forget the exact numbers but I believe for every 10 degrees colder air engine makes 1% better power.

I always thought it added a few hp to change it. Isn't performance mainly based on air and fuel delivery?

A fender well mount cai is good for about 3-5 hp in the fox body.

On the 05 and up mustang yea the tuner and CAI does provide a noticeable difference in hp and torque due mostly to the tuner but for us older mustang owners don't see alot of gains just from a CAI

The 96-up sn95s have that advantage over our foxes too unfortunately.

Not by much really I kill 96 to 04 stangs now... depending on mods, but I have a h,c,I and bolt ons the 96 to 97 gt's were only rated 215 crank hp and 98's were 225 crank hp , and our 5.0 was 210hp stock no to mention the foxes are lighter than the sn95's so with basic mods they are well within our grasp. but us and the 4.6 sn95 guys are in the same boat we have to put some really good money in our cars to make them powerful hate to admit it and I may get some grief but it's the harsh true lol

Take a look at the ABACO MAFs.
If you are going to change it out anyways and plan on upgrading your engine you can easily tune their MAF for any size injector you may use.
