Sounds like they just make the Roush kit a bit better! Install seemed easy enough as well.

I have a 4.6 in my car... Maybe I'll put a 5.0 stroker kit in it... I heard one that had one and it sounded like a demon possessed monster...

Funny thing is I've owned cars with both. But you couldn't comprehend that either.

I can see good points from both sides. Yes a CAI is not the 1st choice for gains, especially on a stock/near stock 2v motor, in fact I'd put it right up there with a throttle body and/or plenum.

If anything, you are freeing up once restricted power but in small amounts throughout the power band that are not going to be noticeable. I do agree that many manufacturers abuse their ability to advertise by stating instant gains that you can feel the minute after you install it! B*tch please..

However, when really thinking about bolt on "engine performance" mods, a cheap CAI is really the best mod for a beginner to install. An inexpensive $50 CAI was my very first mod I did on my 03 when I was 15. It was a great learning experience and helped me get to know my car. That to me was worth the $50 spent. It gave me the itch to keep modding as well as the confidence to do other work on my car - exhaust, springs, brakes, etc. Again, just my opinion based on my experience starting out in the modding world. YMMV

So bottom line OP, if you want a good inexpensive engine mod to help build your mechanical ability, grab a cheap CAI. Don't be swayed into one that costs hundreds.

If not, look into some exterior mods or even some lowering springs. They honestly aren't that difficult to install with a buddy or two and some cold brews.

I just wanna know how installing an intake helps you to get to know your car. Literally my girlfriend installed one on my car before and she's never done any of that.

I guess what I mean is it's a good way to break the ice on modding your car. It is by no means the only way, but if it gets you turning wrenches that's a start. There are too many people these days that won't even do an oil change let alone install something on their cars, it's kinda sad.

I didn't. She installed a cold air intake on my old turbo dart. Anyone can do it. She didn't learn anything from it

I see you guys can't act like mature adults... grow up and quit bickering with each other. If you wanna argue take it to PMs. Quit bringing your spats into these threads.

OP if you're looking for some straight answers then PM one of the more supportive members or check out our Beginners Guide to Bolt-ons in the stickies
