CAI brand?

I have a 2005 Gt with a throttle body spacer and I was wanted to know if anybody knows what intake system adds the most horse power without a tune?

If you don't tune the car it isn't going to do anything. Just look better under the hood.

Well it's made to keep the intake air cooler so I will have some horsepower increase without the tune

Most cases it can actually do more harm than good. Stock your air intake feeds from outside in the fender, a lot of cold air intakes aftermarket will sit in the engine bay and collect heat from in there.

Your factory air intake is a cold air intake. You'll get more "horsepower" putting a K&N sticker on the back of your car.
But if you're absolutely convinced that since they look cool, they must do something without a tune, then spend away. People that suggest you're wasting your money have nothing to gain by giving you false information about hot air intakes.
....I still vote for the sticker though.

Without a tune, you cai will add nothing other then a swoosh sound when you accelerate. I would get a tuner first, then cai later. If you're hell bent on the cai now, roush and airaid make non tunable versions that have a venturi tube that gets removed when you're ready to tune.

The factory 05-09 intake system was not a cold air induction system. A quality intake like an Airaid that seals off from the engine bay will yield positive results

If I was still in an 05-09 my picks would be Ford Racing and Steeda. Airaid and JLT are nice but missing some of the details I think FRPP and Steeda implement.

Edit: Those both require a tune so, if you're not going to get a tune, don't bother, it'd be a waste of $$$. Just like that TB spacer.

Our CAI does not require a tune ... the insert can be removed if you want to run a tune down the road:

Steeda Cold Air Intake and High Flow Inlet Tube, No Tune Required! (05-09 GT) 555-3201 - Free Shipping!

With a tune ... you can expect to see great gains, but with just the CAI itself, you can expect to see numbers in the 8-12 rwhp range.

Let me know if I can help with pricing ... you can reach me at tim@steeda.com

Best Regards,

TJ
