How much hp?

How much hp do you gain with a cold air intake and bama tuner?

Maybe on the 5.0s. Our 3.7L V6s gain somewhere between 15-20 hp with a CAI and Bama tune. AM actually did a video showing different dyno results with stock, tune, CAI, and CAI/tune combo.

I'm talking about at the crank

But without removing the engine nobody will ever know how much at the crank.

The important and useful information to know is at the rear wheels. A stock 3.7 averages 305 HP at the crank (Remember STOCK) It produces about 240 or so at the rear wheels depending on the transmission choice, the rear end ratio, the weather, the fuel used, not to mention what dyno was used.

The best thing you can do is dyno your Mustang and you will know what HP you have at the wheels. Another Mustang with the same set-up you have may have slightly more or less HP then your car.

Any way you look at it, The 2011 up 3.7 V6 Mustang engine is a screamer and with a few mod's it becomes a monster screamer that still has good insurance savings and decent miles to a gallon. It is a great engine.

There isn't much difference between at the crank and at the wheels when talking about the gains you'll receive with just a CAI and tune. For example, with a manual transmission, you'll have roughly 10-15% drivetrain loss. Let's go with 12% for this example. So you gain 20whp from a CAI and tune. That translates to about 22 crank hp. Only a difference of 2 hp. Now obviously an auto will have a bit more drivetrain loss, but this was just an example. Large hp gains with something like a turbo or supercharger are where you'll see a wider gap between crank hp and wheel hp.

Your V6 will pick up somewhere around 20+ RWHP and 20+ RWTQ from a Tune and CAI! We only measure the horsepower gains at the wheels, so I'm not 100% sure what the power would be to the crank. However, the rule of thumb is you usually loose 10-12% in drive train loss so the math won't be to hard to figure out what you're making to the crank said and done.
