He has an '04, not an S197. A CAI doesn't give you much gain, just more noise, and looks better on the '04's.

On a bone stock one you are looking at 5.4-5.6 seconds. With a good bolt on car any where from 4.6-5secoonds. I have seen 4.6 sec in mine with perfect conditions.

A CAI would not make that much of a difference. If you want a chunk taken off your 0-60 time go for a set of rear gears!

Diablo Sport makes a predator tuner for this car. I have to say it would provide more power. Just my $.02

The canned tunes are horrible, the only reason to buy a tuner for a SN95 car is to turn off the check engine light or to correct your speedo for gears unless you're going to get a dynotune. Even then, there's better ways to spend your money for a first mod.

And there's no way I'd buy a Predator nowadays, since they took the most useful function of having a tuner as one of the first mods out of the user's hands. You can't even turn the rear O2 sensors off on the Predator anymore. That's horrible. SCT all the way now!!!!

Before supercharging my car the K&N FIPK and "my canned predator tune" really made my car come alive. More torque, firmer shifts and increased gas milage. Have you ever owned a predator ?

Yes, and the SCT XCalibrator, X2 and X3........ Hell, I even had a Hypertech programmer way back in the day before I knew any better.

Why did you spend so much money on multiple tuners? Why would you want your o2 sensors disabled? They do serve a purpose. If your are running long tubes I can see your point, but here in emission controlled states they look under your car with a very large inspection mirror. No pass - no license tab renewal.

OK, let's break this down a little bit.

I have owned multiple Mustangs over the years, and always let the tuner go to the new owner and bought whatever the newest model was out. It wasn't just to buy a new tuner.

I want my rear O2 sensors disabled because I run an offroad X pipe 99.9% of the year, and don't want a check engine light. Put the cats on for emissions/inspection and then they come back off a few days later. The rear ones serve no purpose other than monitoring catalytic efficiency, they don't affect the tuning of the car.

I think the main point you're missing is that the '05+ and the SN95 chassis use completely different ECU setups. On the '05+ a tuner must be one of your first mods because of how tight the ECU monitors everything. It's very rigid and doesn't have a ton of relearn capabilities. The 96-04 is a completely different animal. Using the MAF and the front O2 sensors, the ECU can compensate for most bolt ons you do to your car with no problems. It knows how much air is coming in, and what the air/fuel ratio is going out and can adjust itself accordingly to a certain point. It can easily adjust to things like aftermarket mid-pipes and CAIs, where the '05+ freaks out when the incoming air is more than expected. So the tuner with canned tunes in it is really not a great mod for the money on the SN95 cars. A custom dynotune is another story, that's one of the best bang for the buck mods after gears. I bought one as my 2nd mod for simple fact that my 1st mod was an offroad X pipe, and I wanted to shut off the rear O2 sensors to cut off the check engine light.
