Bud... My termi ran an 11.6 with a ford tune which bumped the psi, CAI and stage 2 clutch on nitto 555s with the previous owner...
Did I forget to mention that those are only "bolt on" bullsh*t add ons?

Looked at the Summit Cat. CAI BBK 10-14 HP Steeda 44 HP!!!!! Trick Flow no claims K&N no caims. Tuners, only JET makes a HP claim , no others. Exhaust only BBK claims 10-15 HP from H pipes and 20 more from headers. None from the others. The smart company's know better. Steeda is insane and BBK is in love with themselves.

With my "useless exhaust mods" I think I will easily run under 8.8 if I can get my 60" down which was a 2.1 on my 8.8 run. If I can get the 60" into 1.9 range with better track prep I should easily run under 8.6@83+ mph in 1400 da like last time I ran my best time.

120 for the intake and 180 for the tune with the tuner. So just about 300 dollars. Lol.

Be smart. Buy mods used. They're usually more than half off and work perfectly fine.They don't hold value and a used tuner does the exact same thing as a new one. A slightly used CAI does exact same thing as a new one.

So, with 300 dollars In mods my 1/8th time dropped from a 9.2-9.4@78 mph to my 8.8@82 mph. Id say that's worth it.
Totally agree with buying a used, unmarried tuner. I did slightly better with the used tuner...paid $150.00 (unmarried), and $75.00 for my MRT tune.

Yup it's common sense. Why pay 380 dollar when you can get one used? I paid 120 for my unmarried tuner + 65 dollars for the steeda tune.

Would be nice of said claims were real. More like 3-5 on exhaust and 1-3 on cai. Steeda 44¿ does it shoot air into the upper¿

YouTube has a piece on Leno's garage with a 2013 ford boss 302. Ford engineer Dave Pericak states at 4:45 the air intake is perfect nothing to be gained changing it. Then at 8:25 he lets the cat out of the bag. My car has this mod and it added 3 mph in the quarter.

Huh? Now I think your a troll. You were posting like 10 replies saying that an intake Is worthless than you go and say you gained 3 mph from an intake alone? That's impossible. You don't make sense.

Our 44 HP claim is with a CAI and Tune ... the dyno numbers are attached:



The 2013 + Cold Air Intake will see lower gains because of the high HP rating Ford gave the Mustang GT.

Steeda 2011-14 Automatic Mustang GT Cold Air Intake - Made in USA 555-3156 - Free Shipping!

And that 44HP gain on the Steeda is on a GT guys... What are the gains on a 3.7?

Half lol our v8s will always have a bigger gain just cuz the engine is larger but still the Steeda CAI and Tuner for the 3.7 is the BEST combo for HP and TQ then its the airaid.

My modification was to remove the air dam in front of the ambient air intake in the grill. It allows fresh outside ambient air into the intake. Not hot air off the exhaust manifolds and/or behind the 210+ degree radiator. It works and it cost nothing!

Yes sir. On the very next run. Looking for consistent 13s at 102+ and nothing done under the hood. Considering an aluminum driveshaft and drag radials next. Like to do it on street tires though. Best 60' is 2.059 so far. I'm close.

In the Leno Boss video at 8:25 he mentions to remove the Fog Light Deletes to get air into the Grill. Can you show me where you removed this air dam on your grill? A PIC or a red mark on a regular photo of your car on where in the Grill this Air Dam is at? What did you have to remove to get to it, a FAQ Air Dam Removal Thread you could put together?

Probably wont work on mine, I have real fog lights where the Deletes are on the Boss.

I too would be interested in this mod. I have the GT bumper cover, and I placed the blockoff plates into where the grill fogs go. I don't recall any air dam near or around the drivers side, but then again, I was not looking for it when I had the bumper cover off.

With the hood open, you will see a rectangular tube feeding the air box going toward the front of the grill. It has 2 plastic plates in front of it blocking direct outside ambient air. You can remove this air dam. If I posted this I would have to identify myself and my back round in the industry. I don't need the typical internet beat down. I just want to help. My incremental times show 1 mph at the 1/8th and 3 at the stripe. So this mod really works better as speed increases just as you would imagine.

Thanks.

And posting a pic here would not "identify" you.

I now understand what you removed, and respect your privacy.

Forums are a mine field. I would quote my industry experience but it would have an effect that I wouldn't be comfortable with. I apologize to those that don't have a 2012 like mine. My mod was easy. If you can follow the air intake tube to the front of the grill you will be able to discern how to open it up to the front of the car. I don't suggest eliminating a fog lamp but it is right behind it. I spent many a day arguing with engineers about such oversights. A naca duct under the bumper would have been a terrific addition. Accounting won't allow these needless and expensive ideas. (?) Funny, they tell the owners of the BOSS 302 that they can remove the fog lamp delete blank out and have this mod for a performance gain.

Okay to get this clear u were able to remove the plastic barrier that blocks the air flow directly to the intake box inlet?

Same thing as a roush grille. You will not see 30 hp from this. I'm done arguing though.

I make no claims, just saying what worked for me. My data is off of time slips. I don't want to tell anyone what to do or how to spend their money, there is enough of that on the WWW already. Funny, the ad in the Summit catalog doesn't mention the 44HP was with a V8 with a tune. Were just having fun.

The air dam in front of the outside air intake right behind the grill. On my 2012 you could put your finger between the grill openings and push it back. It's not part of the plastic grill work. I just cut it away. There are 2 pieces. Not sure why. Don't know about other year mustangs.

I have a 12 5.0 GTCS so I have the cs grill the billet but I can see a plastic that blocks the intake box inlet is that what you're refering to? I have the 5.0 fog grill on my 3.7 and it has that same barrier blocking the air

Yea that's what he talking about. It's there for aerodynamics and "increased mpg" from it. It won't give you 30 hp if you take it out. The air isn't significantly inhibited by that air dam.
