Cold air intake kit

So I bought a cold air intake kit from American Muscle. Going to install it this weekend on my 87 vert. Engine is stock with mass density airflow system. Any advice regarding install? Also what other relatively easy mods can I make to improve performance. I'm not looking for a drag car just something that moves.

Exhaust, maybe you could get away with other mods, but with speed density you run the risk of ruining drivability with airflow mods, I have a MAF conversion kit in the classified section.

It sounds like you're on the right track! I would start with a CAI and Exhaust, from there you can go with Gears and some suspension mods. This will build you a pretty fun street car for sure!

Thanks guys. Forgot to mention that I had exhaust upgraded with flowmaster mufflers, h pipe and high flow cats. Any down side to cai with mass density?

Convert to MAF before you do anything else. I would never recommend keeping a car speed density unless you really know what you are doing with a tuner and do it yourself.

No, you should convert to mass air, then install the CAI. Messing with anything as far as air going into the motor with a speed density car is going to mess it up, they are tuned specifically for values already pre-programmed into the computer, they cannot adjust like MAF cars. I'd PM BillyMich and ask about his MAF conversion kit.

I don't know why the Bama guy posted about getting a CAI, I'm hoping that he just missed the part about you having SD because it would be kind of funny for the "mustang expert" to not know that...
