New purchase?

Well i have just bought my airaid intake which comes in the mail in 1 more day! Can't wait for that.
But I'm not to sure what I should buy for my mustang next?
I wanted to buy the MCA grille/louvers for my mustang, but then my friend said buy a tuner, I'm not sure what I should do? Any suggestions welcomed. I have a 2011 v6.

Well you won't be disappointed in the intake! But if you get the tune and you have a warranty it will be voided. But the airraid with a race tune gets you about 35 HP. Or get axle backs and you will really benefit!

if you going to be going speed above 135 on a close course you should get a drive shaft

Well he'd need a tune for that, and anything over 115 I would suggest a driveshaft. But for daily driving its kind of a big expense

yea it is but if he gets a tune hes going to be tempting to faster because it doesnt stop at 115 no more just to be safe

It all just depends on if he's got the warranty, because everything will void it besides intake, driveshaft, and axle backs. If not he's got lots of options lol

Tip on installing the Airaid

The instructions will show putting the coupler onto the air tube and then installing the assembly onto the throttle body. I could not get it to go on that way. I just went and put the coupler on to the throttle body first and then the air tube went on a whole lot easier. I installed everything dry so as not to contaminate the air sensors.
And this is important. Disconnect the battery when installing the CAI doing this allows the computer to adjust for the increased better airflow the Airaid will give your engine. You will notice better throttle response right away.

Your gonna love the way it looks every time you pop the hood.

Disconnect it.

It is sooooo easy a stupid caveman can even do it.

It will reset your computer to take advantage of the increased air flow.
Just because someone else did not do it does not mean you should be lazy too.
