You should do full exhaust longtubes and midpipe maybe plenum and tb too

Yup, don't waste money on a CAI. The stock intake is a CAI and a quite good one at that.

If the exhaust is not yet opened up to 2-1/2" from the manifolds back then do that first. Then get a tuner/tune as the stock tune sucks (the ignition timing is uninspiring and it runs rich at WOT), plus you can use the tuner to correct the speedometer for the 4.10s.

Next upgrade the upper plenum to any aftermarket unit; the stock plenum is the weak point in the intake and should have been part of the PI mods. Here are Accufab's bench test data for various upper plenums and TB bores, you can see that any aftermarket plenum with the stock 65 mm TB will meet or outflow the stock plenum with any size TB.

If you also change out the TB 70 mm is all you need, and arguably better when running n/a, however they cost pretty the same and the difference will never be noticed on a DD, so get whatever size floats your boat. No retuning is needed for the new TB and plenum, it just improves airflow at higher loads and WOT. The MAF will continue to accurately measure air flow into the engine and the tune will continue to adjust things accordingly...

You should definitely do a cold air intake. 5.0 mustang magazine did a bolt on battle issue and the cai by itself added 7 or 8 hp

On the 99-04? Find that a bit hard to believe but it could be true, like cliffy said, the stock intake acts like a cai and works just as well as any type of cai on this car..

I have seen that article before; that magazine is full of crap, generally and in this particular case--look at the brands they tested, then who their major advertisers are and do the math.

There is no way that a CAI alone will add anything measurable in 3 or 4 back-to-back runs--some even cost power. I'll pay for the dyno time if someone wants to meet me in Sanford FL and supply the aftermarket CAIs...

if i had the controls on a dyno i could make it say my v6 makes 400 hp...just saying. Our stock air boxes are amazing with just a drop in filter and no silencer...he'll get the same gains as an aftermarket CAI


great looking car OP...welcome to the site. btw love the auto man....add a stall and you're gonna flip at how well it runs

smoother flowing? a 99-04 stock intake tube is smooth as can be on the inside with a minimal bend...if you can take an air meter to that and prove it makes a difference i'll eat a shoe

Well the one my buddy had pulled off his 03 gt was not smooth not smooth compared to the jlt he had bought. Don't know if it was screwed up or something but there was a big difference between them.

I don't have money for a dyno right now so I guess yours. And I'm agreeing with everyone who says the stock intake is fine, my brother had a 97 and we just put a k&n drop in filter and it was just as good. I'd just like to see if there's any difference though

Wouldn't an aftermarket give me a couple extra MPG or is that a myth and a few extra HP?

same thing will happen with a drop in air filter and taking off the silencer...just a cheaper way to do it

As I said above I will pay for the dyno runs, I am just asking who's car we should use for the back-to-back runs? The only potential complication I see is the location and wiring for the IAT sensor, however I am sure we can work that out...
