2002 Mustang V6. Looking for performance mods

Hey guys, i just got a 2002 Mustang V6 and am certainly looking to add on. Money is relatively limited so not looking to do anything outrageous right now. First thing im looking for is a Cold Air Intake, if anyone knows what the best value for one and where I could find it Id love to find out.
Thanks

I would look into an intake spacer before a CAI. An intake spacer will cost a small amount more and offer about 2-3 times the gains of a CAI, and they are easy to install.

Get the CAI from AM and use the discount code for 6% off your whole purchase. Throw in the intake spacer too and the combo should cost you around a $100 or less

^+1 A very good idea. The intake spacer and the CAI together will give you about 8rwhp and 9rwtrq. Not a bad combination and the best you will see for the money other than supercharger/turbocharger.
