Yeah the Boss IM is worth it. Especially since you've already got a tuner and CAI. I was recently at a local car show and 3 of the 5 5.0's there had the Boss IM. It's definitely gaining popularity.
If you've got the Borla S-Type, why not go with the Borla LT's? I know their more expensive but I can't get over how much precession and testing goes into their exhaust.

Boss intake sounds like it's gunna be next on the list then. but as far as the Headers, I've heard from multiple people that the Kooks are the best out for the 13 mustangs. don't get me wrong I want to go borla just because do have the s-type, but money isn't the issue so I'm trying to see what are better. not to much into cars so trying to hear other opinions

Cant go wrong with LTs but some guys are saying they gained the same HP with a catless X. I say go for the LTs catless mid pipe and the Boss mani. That's what I did and don't regret it one bit.

One thing you have to be willing to do with the Boss intake is raise your shift points to 7600-7700. Something not everyone is willing to do. Also it's a misconception that the Kooks headers are long tubes. They are actually a mid length design even though all the distributors call them long tubes. Kooks did this purposely to keep the rear o2's as close to the stock location as possible. Still they are a great header.

You don't necessarily have to wind it out that high, ask dwc_smozilla, his peak is at 6700 and he's almost 450 hp.

Now about kooks, are they the only ones thy give you tq gains or are they the only ones that advertise it

Because the Boss Manifold's gains are more noticeable at higher RPM's.

450 rwhp and he's only shifting at 6700? There's more to the story I'm sure. What other mods does he have?

No Kooks isn't the only one that will make more torque. American Racing and Stainless Works will also make more torque.

My peak is at 6800, I'm shifting at 7-7200. It's all in the tune. Other than that, c&l cai, boss im, bbk cat deletes, flowmaster 3" catback, American thunder mufflers. No resonators. 93 octane tune.

Not bad but dynos can be manipulated pretty easy. What are your best track times?

12.24@115 with a 1.9 60ft on stock Pirellis. At 4000lbs. with driver. I agree dynos may be able to be manipulated. But a great friend of mine owns a shop with a Dynojet 224xLC and has been doing this stuff for over 20 years. You can't find a more intelligent and honest person than my friend Matt.

Does any one have a link to dyno #s or testing on the Cobra Jet... I still haven't seen anything except "coming soon".

You should take a look at American Racing Headers I have a friend that runs a dyno shop and he says AR headers make more horsepower

According to the FRPP guys, the CJ intake will yield about 25 hp over boss intake, but I'm pretty sure you'd have to wind it all the way out to 7750 rpms for that. It'd be an easy 2k for the intake and all supporting parts
