Airaid cai. awesome. buy it now!!

this is by far the best purchase i have made for my mustang. it sounds sick. you can hear the air getting pulled in with tons of force. it made my borla atak axle back exhaust a lot more deep and louder. makes the motor much more v8 sounding. as far as the hp and torque gains. i believe the 13hp and 15 torque that it adds. you can really feel the torque gain for sure it really wants to take off much faster and feels like it is pulling much harder. I'm not sure if i got extra power than most for having the borla but i love it. easy to install and worth every dollar.

Congrats on the intake. I've got the Airaid too and absolutely love the sound. Any kind of MPG gain I got from it is cancelled out because I can't seem to keep my foot off the gas now haha. My next mod is gonna be the Borla ATAKs, so I'm glad to hear the Airaid goes along great with them.

With Borla Atak you are probably going to lose 3-5mpg... Cause you will love the sound and your foot will be like a magnet to the floor lol.

Defenitly. Borla ataks will turn heads really fast. By far the best. Not even another close. I would honesty challenge the sound of the v8 at a red light. It sounds great

I would get the airaid because the steeda requires a tune and prolly much more complicated to install. The airaid was extremely easy to install and the sound in the video doesn't compare how cool the exhaust and intake sound in person

I love it when you turn off the engine in a garage and you hear it releasing the air
