Airaid CAI for 2007 V6

Hey Everyone!!
I am looking into American Muscles Airaid Cold Air Intake.. Link is below... Wasn't too sure how it is since it doesn't require a tune. Does anyone have this on their car or know anything about it? I like that eventually I can get a tune to wake the car up more but at the moment, I just want to give her a little get up and go.

Any input is appreciated
Thank you!

Kits that don't require a tune generally provide a lesser benefit than those that do due to their size. I've asked this question before and have been given the answer that I should get a CAI that requires a tune for maximum returns.

Hope this helps!

The Airaid no tune required CAI will definitely make a big difference on your Mustang. You'll notice gains in power, torque, throttle response and some awesome engine noise!

You'll see similar gains with a CAI and Custom tune regardless if the intake requires a tune. I hope this helps. Let me know if you have any questions or need some assistance in the near future!

I had my Airaid before I had a tune and could definitely tell a difference! Pulls harder and more smoothly and with a tune the same effect just amplified! And the sound is sick especially with my tb spacer!

You're welcome! I'm glad I was able to help you out. Airaid is running a rebate right now, this is a great time to take advantage of a great deal!

Hit me up if you have any further questions!

Hey Dan,


I just ordered your Bama tuner and to my luck you guys JUST put up a sale stating that you'd give a Bama banner for orders over $200 and would ALSO give a discount of $25 for orders over $200.

Any chance I can get this?

Yes and No. I have the Airaid CAI on my Wife's Camaro, which I did a Tune on it also. It's nice, no complaints. On my Mustang GT. I have a Steeda CAI. You'll be fine with the Airaid CAI with or without a Tune.

Hey Kustumb,
I believe that $25 discount was towards your next purchase, if I read that correctly.

I've never liked the looks of the steeda, all that metal can't be good for intake temps?

That is some crappy timing for us to put up a sale huh, haha! I can definitely get you taken care of. Please shoot me a PM with your order number included and I'll make sure we get a banner sent out and a $25 gift card sent over for your next purchase!

It's Carbon Fiber. There is no metal. It's very lite. They also have Plastic ones also. I think you've got them confused with one of the other Brands.
