CAI ?

Looking to replace my K&N CAI. What's the best to pair up with a GT500 TB upgrade and a Ford Racing intake manifold?

Can't go wrong with Steeda ... American made by the American worker using the highest quality parts.

Here is an article we did a little while back that will provide you with some good insight to the process/benefits of the Steeda CAI.

All the brands listed are good ... but we feel that our CAI is a better investment ... as any company that is making a product should.

Let me know if you have any questions or if you would like to order a Steeda CAI? You can reach me at tim@steeda.com

Best Regards,

TJ

As mentioned above, you can't go wrong with Steeda or JLT. Both make a quality CAI's that produce top notch power.

I'm assuming you already have LT's with the car? If not, I would definitely consider it since you're using the Ford Racing intake. LT's will really benefit from the extra air!

Whats wrong with keeping the K&N the tube is what 80-85 mm and the GT500 TB is what 62mm
Do the math were is the restriction I cant see you getting any big HP increase with a bigger intake tube when the K&N tube is already bigger then your throttle body but that's just my 2 cents

Some of the bigger tubes have bigger MAF sensors, which makes a difference.

It's twin 62mm blade throttle body, so combined that's 124mm, and K&N MAF tube is 80mm
