It basically all comes down to looks.

If you got the money, get the Steeda one and wait till you get a tuner to put it on.

With CAIs, if it's not a larger diameter tube so much that it requires a new MAF sensor you aren't moving but that much more air. For most of what's left, it's more about looks, sound and price. I have the Airraid here. Looking back, I wish I would have gotten one with an aluminum intake tube. +1 on Kevin's remarks, you'll see more increase with a tuner to make the most out of it. Volt however speaks the gospel.

My last post was just to appease you. But if you really want my honest opinion, get the airaid modular intake tube and an aFe drop in filter. That will run you about $170 or so. Then save what you have leftover for an SCT4 tuner from AM or something.

You best performance gain for the money will always be gears. For well under $1000, you can dramatically improve your car's acceleration. The V6's top gear maxxes out at about 210mph at redline. It's just way too tall. The optimal gear for that car with manual transmisison is 3.73. That brings the top speed in 6th gear down to about 150-160mph, which is the actual maximum of the car.

NOTE - when changing gears, be aware that the safe limit for your driveshaft drops closer to the 112mph limiter. Very tall gears in a V6 also requires a driveshaft swap if you intend to race it or have disabled the limiter.

OTOH, if you just drive it around town, no worries there...

The "aFe drop in filter" hasn't been Voltwings/Sakib tested yet.

I may be wrong but I think he asked --------

BBK or Airaid???
As far as performance is concerned ===Either one because they don't really work any or much at all better then the stock air cleaner in normal driving.
But when you floor it either one will give such a great sound you will have an orgasm in both ears. They do make accelerating that good with the sound they produce.

I personally like the looks and fit of the AirAid better then the BBK . Both are fine filters and neither one will hurt your car so just get the one you like the looks of .
Ronnie

Stock compare to AirAid

Yea but I had the air raid and just didn't feel any difference just the sound. But with the roush I noticed the sound and an actual low end difference even before the MPT tune...I think roush gets the best batch of air raids stuff, at least looked like the inside was smoother and a lot nicer then the air raid...just looked and and felt better put together

Probably just more refined so there are some differences between the two. I cant imagine they could resell the same exact product and other companies be ok with it. Most places change it JUST enough to get by.

Personally, I like AirAid because the tubing is plastic. The BBK one has an aluminum tube which tends to retain heat more than plastic would. Hotter air = less power. Also, the BBK one looks cheap to me. Like something you'd get off of eBay. The AirAid has the looks, power, and design IMO.

Leave the stocker in, take the money you would have spent on it and get a gym membership and workout clothes. Your performance will be the same.

The air isn't in the intake long enough to lose more than 1 maybe 2 degrees before entering the combustion chamber which is hotter than the air in the engine bay.
BBK I think has better design, then again I don't feel a difference between my ebay intake and my airaid.

It would be nice if someone did a comprehensive write up on cold air intakes.

Yes, But you already know that someone is

The only problem I can foresee is the report will be so scientific and complicated, You won't know anymore then before.
