Cold air intake

Can anyone tell me if cold air intake really makes a noticeable difference in gas mileage etc? Also is there any difference between Sceptre/BBK/K&N or any other brand other than price? It would be for a 01 GT 5spd.

Nah not really. Minimal gains unless it's with a tune. But a cold air intake is usually one if the first mods people put on their car. It's a good start if anything. Here's a pic of my K&N

The factory intake is actually pretty decent so an aftermarket one doesn't do anything more than clean the engine bay up. Most of the CAIs out there do the same function as well as the other, it just depends on the name you want to rep. Mine came with a K&N but a lot of guys recommend JLT (what I would have gone with).

All that being said post up some pictures and welcome to the forum!!

Bigger tubing / Different filters / Different material
Stay away from chrome it soaks more heat

JLT next gen is the way to go

All those factors won't matter that damn much to make a difference in power. Just get what you want, yeah get a more expensive one if you're willing to spend the extra money for little to no difference than a cheap one. If you don't care to spend an extra $100-150 then go for it. I got the cheap SR one on AM and it work just fine. JDF is right the factor intake is just fine. Its ugly though.

Neither does comparing them next to each other. The stock intake tube necks down to a point where it is very tiny where it makes the turn into the TB. Not the case with a good aftermarket CAI.

I mean go pull the tube off if you have a stock inlet tube and look at it and you'll see what I am talking about.

If you're going to get one get the jlt next gen otherwise don't bother. Others pretty much just look pretty.

Most ppl have a hard time justifying an extra $200 for the JLT when the SR is $80. Yes the relocation of the MAF into the fender is optimal but not game breaking at the NA 2V level.

Buddy of mine just got the bbk one and it looks nice and he says it has a nice sound but didn't notice any gains. I personally think you should save that money on some gears or a tuner. But that's just my opinion.

Yea personally the best part was the sound it gives, when you get on it.

I had the BBK one for my 95 Cobra for awhile. Would not buy again. Fit/finish was meh and it had varying tubing sizes.

I heard it may raise the torque and hp by about 24? Is that true?

That's what we call "paper horsepower".
