Don't have there full system just a filter from them and it has been working very well. I would say they are a quality brand compared to many other no name brands.

Airaid and K&N and JLT make the best stuff for our 4.0 V6s for intakes.

They're useless on the 3.7 as far as power is concerned. But they are a big improvement on the 4.0

So really since I have a 4.0 it's not a bad pickup?

If you have a 4.0 and are wanting more power, a not having a CAI is not an option!

I've owned a 2006 V6 and now own a 2010 GT.

The factory air induction system on the 05-09 models blows. Replacing it with an aftermarket cold air intake (i.e. Steeda, JLT, Airaid) will provide worthwhile gains.

The factory cold air induction system (Ford's name for 'CAI') that comes standard on the 2010+ models is efficient and not necessarily worth replacing.
