Btw, I'd like to see a test. Completely stock 1/4 mile pass vs just cold air pass.

Hahaha!! You guys are quite entertaining...but really, purchasing a CAI is just about the easiest thing to do for mods. You just look at various ones, find the one you like, if you don't want to have to tune just get one that doesn't need one, and BAM! you're suddenly a pro.

I'm a girl...and I figured it all out on my own as well as installing it all by myself. And yes, mine works still after two years and no issues it also sucks in air loudly with acceleration and dumb people actually ask if I have a turbo every now and then. Too funny.

I heard k&n gives negative 6 on a dyno. I'm simple, I'll go with what's on the project car at AM. Hell, it's 11 seconds!

Re: Deciding on CAI's ?

Hi White,
I'm betting you were very mis-informed on the K&N giving a minus horsepower deficit.

If you can produce where you read that please let us all know so we can do some research and find out if it is actually true. (I personally don't think it is)

K&N provides filters for almost all of the racing industry and have been around way to long to be putting out crap.

I think any company's CAI will give much better air flow then the stock air filter and work much better at the higher RPM range. Cruising around town you will never notice any difference between stock and an CAI.

According to "FORD RACING" the people that helped engineer the K&N filters for the Mustangs say the drop in filter will produce a 12 horsepower increase over the stock filter. ( I'm sure they are talking higher RPM's)

I'd also like to see the proof on that for the K&N.

I did not mean to start a controversy. I am able to pick up the k & n typhoon at cost through a friend, but everyone seems to be going airraid.

Re: Deciding on CAI's ?

Both are truly great products. They both do the same thing and you will be more then happy with which one you choose.

Each of these company's manufacture their own products and have giant modern facilities.

The K&N has a nice chrome tube and a closed airbox.
The airaid has a black tube and an open airbox.

Both products are proudly "MADE IN THE U.S.A."

I just put the K&N drop in air filter in my car because my hi RPM days are over and done. I just wanted it for the increased filtering that the stock paper filter does not provide.

Let us know which one you decide to get.

Ronnie

I was joking lol why buy a cai if it makes less horsepower? I think that went over everyone's head. Sorry about that lol I'm not a big k&n guy. I like air raid, my last k&n filter left me disappointed and a engine with dirt in it. Or I suppose it had it since there was much dust and dirt in the snorkel.

Re: Deciding on CAI's ?

I'll be making my intake soon when I get my car back. I've already got a K&N cone filter, bought a MAF adapter that I hope works, and I'll throw it together and paint it Grabber Green. I also have an idea for making a heat shield.

Ahh the old days of modding for cheap. I remember taking half my Air intake off my 02 v6 for a few decibels of exhaust lol

Re: Deciding on CAI's ?

Well, seeing as I already own everything but the MAF adapter, and the stuff to hook the PCV up, I'm only going to be out $40 on a CAI.

Re: Deciding on CAI's ?

Yep. If I can make it look nice and get the same results for way less money, I don't see the issue. I've fabricated intakes for my other cars, among other work I've done.
