cold air intake

I have a 2011 mustang v6. Does anybody know of a good, cheap cold air intake and where can I buy it from?

There is a package deal on American muscle where I can get both, but I also need a new laptop for school, so it may have to wait

I'd wait too. Schools important. But sounds like a plan and good luck

Re: cold air intake

I see the 2012 V6 engine has a standard Cold Air Induction system. Any comments on whether there are any benefits in replacing this system with an aftermarket product?

TexasBoneKing & I debated this for a while. I'm still going to end up buying a CAI and tuner in-lieu of our conversation.

Time for round two of the bashing! Lol

On that new v6. It does draw cool air in stock. Might be a tad restrictive and an aftermarket might give you a few ponies. (talking 1-5) just because of the less restriction. My personal opinion is that the money for a cai is better spent somewhere else that can make more bang for the buck. Cai. In my opinion is for looks

Re: cold air intake

research if a tune is required, it may be for an intake

A few of the CAIs that I have seen on American muscle do not require a tune, but you get less HP. when I get around to buying a CAI I will probably buy a tuner with it.

If you can only purchase 1, get the tuner 1st. I've researched into this plenty & all sources say to get a tuner for the most enjoyable ride. You're saving around $20 or so when you purchase the 2 together but if necessary, just purchase the tuner & then the CAI later.

Re: cold air intake

I drove to American Muscle for mine. I got a JLT. It sounds good and it is the best power gain. Second cheapest tuner/intake. For some reason, the C&L is 10 bucks more.

Got my tuner on the way now and will be getting the JLT myself when money permits.
