OK its CAI time for my Mustang GT

So, I'm going to be ordering my CAI and tuner from brenspeed later this month, and I was wondering what opinions you guys might have on the ford racing CAI versus the JLT CAI in terms of performance. I like the look of the ford intake more, enough that the price difference is meaningless. On paper the JLT is bigger in terms of MAF, so is there a noticeable power difference or is it a six to one half a dozen to the other type situation.

Go with the JLT. You will not be disappointed. If you are looking for hard numbers there have been CAI comparison tests. Cold Air Intake Comparisons - 5.0 Mustang & Super Fords Magazine


Forged bottom end, Ported heads, Saleen super charger, 2.8 blower pulley/15psi, Dual stage water to air intercooler, AFCO heat exchanger, battery relocated, Twin GT500 fuel pumps, T-56 trans, Aluminum flywheel, Aluminum driveshaft, 3.73 rear gears, Eaton TruTrac Diff, TA Performance rear end girdle, Racecraft suspension system, UCA, LCA, panhard bar, 15" slotted front rotors w/ 6 piston calipers, Carbon Fiber front splitter/rear diffuser, and bunch of other stuff
RWHP/RWTQ is adequate

from what i have gathered from all of the CAI threads it seems like JLT is the best bang for the buck. if you are wanting the best numbers i would get a JLT. if you like the looks of something else then get it. i still have my stock cai, but if i ever do get a cold air intake i will be getting the one that makes the most hp/torq....so unless you are into show cars i wouldn't go for looks i would go with the best gains. i'm pretty sure you will be spending more time driving your car than sitting there looking at it with the hood up.

I talked to both Brenspeed and Chris Rose at Tillmans, they both said the JLT and C&L intakes are better at producing power than the Ford Bullitt style intake.

The JLT doesn't look bad and you can get it chrome, painted to match your car, or have it airbrushed. I like the hearing it take in air right before you get pinned to your seat.

Oh, I hear that now with the stock intake. Really impressed me how it sounded.
