Best CAI intake

I have a tuner and would like to get a cold air intake. Which is the best one that will add the most torque and horse power with a tune?

Hey Zcar,


Personally, I am a huge fan of the Airaid Race Cold Air Intake.


It looks great, installs easily, and makes some awesome power!


Check out this video if you had any questions! It goes over everything .



Hope this helps and let me know if you have any questions!



-Will

Best CAI intake

Is steeda making performance variants of the new generation mustang? Just curious hadn't heard anything. Truth be told I was going to buy a 08 steeda q495 instead of my Roush. The car sold before I could get any info from the owner about it. I understand it's a very rare car correct?

Do the K&N CAI work as good as the Steeda or Air raid?

Most CAIs are the same, some
Plastic tubing, a couple of clamps and a big air filter. The performance gains are in the tune. That said, I have a JLT as it was a package deal with my SCT tunes from AM/Bama

I had a roush on my 06 and I loved it. I installed a throttle body spacer as well and it sounded amazing. My dad has a jlt on his 05 and it works really good and it picked up in power with it and the tune. It just depends on which one you want.
