Which one should i get or are they all the same without a tune?
For what? Cold air induction?

I went Roush, no tune. Makes a pretty cool sound, apparently. Occasionally I hear it a little, but i am told it sounds really cool from outside.

Best performance (also most expensive and tune required) is Steeda. Other then that, they're all the same. Just find which looks nicest.

Do you want a ricer shine or a nice stock look that most people will like. I'd go with an air raid, bbk blackout, or roush

The roush intake is a airaid intake, just roush badged. All intakes will give you around the same gains. I would get an airaid because its the cheapest.

I have the bbk. I like their new blackout they have if you aren't getting a tune then pick which one you like the looks of as they are all pretty much specked the same. IMO the gains are negligible as you won't notice them unless you "stomp" on it or in you use it in conjunction with a tune.

In my experience with just the cai
1. It looks pretty
2. Improves sound a little
3. Apparently had a few more ponies ( cant tell when I mash it down but the car sounds "meaner" since I installed it.

They are all the same until the tune IMO. But roush and mustang are popular. I'd go with it if I had the money. Bbk blackout most likely for me.

No problem, my knowledge is limited but I try to chip in. I have read before that some are the same. I think it looks really good.

I feel a difference, but that is wide open throttle and low end. Low end means 800-1200 rpm range. Not crazy, but it seems like she does bot struggle as much. I go Roush because I have them install all of my stuff, and I trust them.

Ive yet to do it on my Mustang but on my previous PT Cruiser just a drop in K&N made the throttle response much smoother.

Throttle body spacer? Is it a waste of money?
People say so. One individual noted a very slight mpg gain, .15 ish, and a lot of people suggest more low end torque. Results are not clear, though. Most will suggest it is a paper weight. I will do it and post info when I have 100 USD i won't miss, maybe after I buy all the family presents for Christmas.

Opinions are like a$$ holes. Everybody has one. I have an airaid cai and really love it. I love the sound it makes when you juice it and the cai sucks in that air. I'm sure I would be happy with another brand but airaid always had good reviews plus I took advantage of the 50 dollar rebate a few months back. Go with airaid.

I went with airaid also . Can't feel the power but seems to get better mpg. Only thing for sure is it sounds better and looks good.
