I'm not sure what to think about this video. They were not using it on a Mustang. Also seems like they are not using a tune after putting on the CAI. What does everyone think.

It was true that their car didn't experience gains, not all cars do. Look at the 3.7 and 5.0. With just a CAI there isn't much gain. Same with a Honda S2000, some cars just have better factory intakes than others.

Typically older cars benefit more from a CAI than newer ones. The newer cars are built for engine efficiency so they typically have a good intake from the factory.

Kinda sucks that some people purchase a CAI thinking they are going to get SOME kind if gain. Then to have it lose... I'd be pretty upset.
