Cold Air intake

Hey guys why is steedas cold air intake and tune 750.00 are they for real?? Does anyone have it? Is it work. 3/4 of a thousand dollars ? I'm not feeling it. ford has a tune and k&n that eliminates skip shift tunes for the k&n and 93 octane and you get 40hp and 60torque for 385.00 and also would I be better off changing my gears instead my stangs only option missing was the 373 but I had 4.10 in my 2001 gt and loved them any opinions thanks everyone

It's the only one confirmed to get the car to 60 in 3.6 and run the 1/4 in 11.8, that with radials and a professional driver though, there's video proof.

The JLT should be capable of the same but I'm not sure what tune comes with that and no one has done the same thing at the track with the JLT

Steeda plus tune puts down 411 at the wheels in the manual

Re: Cold Air intake

Steeda is priced for quality.The C&Ls and JLT are great and quality construction.If you are not looking to spend $700 then go with a C&L or JLT.

Guess I'll go with steeda it's just painful to drop 750.00 does anyone know what tuner steeda uses and couldn't I possible use someone elses tuner and just buy the cold air intake ? I just have to find someone who has a diablosport tuner or something right?

Re: Cold Air intake

Nope has to be tuned for your car.Also look into who is gonna tune the car for you,dont just get the car tune.....do it right.Look on BBR site or go to americanmuscle.com for a Bama tune.IMO C&L or JLT is just as good as Steeda.If you dont wanna drop $700 then get a C&L and you will be set.

If you would like an opinion on a different CAI system, I have the Airaid CAI and IMHO it is the best quality CAI in terms of looks and fitment. It's as if Airaid took the time to design this system so it would perfectly replace the stock airbox without doing any modifications. AM is selling it for under $700 with their Bama tunes. I read in another forum that Bama had tested their tunes with Steeda, JLT and I believe C&L and Airaid showed the most gains throughout the rpm range.

I sure 'like' the way this sounds. I think I am getting closer to droppin' the CAI in, and doing the tune..

Re: Cold Air intake

ford might keep the warranty and get good results but there are better tunes I am sure out there...make sure those claims are accurate.

I agree. The Ford Power Pack is a good way to go if you want to do all the popular bolt-ons all at once and not necessarily have the dealer immediately give you cold shoulder when it comes to any service claims. The Pro-cal tune I would consider a mild tune in comparison to other after-market companies. If you have an auto, you'll probably feel an improvement in throttle response and shifting more than people with sticks. Other after-market company tunes can be customized to your liking and the effect of longevity on your drive train will probably be very minimal and not even noticeable.

As for your gears, I'm assuming you have the stock 3.31s, so the most I personally would go is 3.73s. I have an auto and even 3.73s would be almost too much because of the steep 1st gear on the autos. It really depends if you drive your car as DD or if it's mainly a track car. I would do the CAI(or K&N filter)/tune mod first because later you can adjust your car's computer for the change in rear-end gear using your tuner.
