Question CAI/Tuner and Gears questions + others

I have a 2008 V6 automatic, and I can't decide which CAI/Tuner combo to get:

Mustang CAI and Diablosport InTune Tuner (05-10 V6) - Free Shipping
or
Mustang Next Generation CAI & SF3 Tuner (05-09 V6) - Free Shipping
I'm not sure if there is a difference, I don't know

Also what kind of gears should I get? 3.73 or 4.10?

And lastly, what kind of exhaust is this? (brand, type, etc)

I have the bbk and from what I seen its a pretty good intake. No problems. Not sure about the Diablo sport tuner cause I have the bama sct 4. But to answer your questions 1. Id go with the jlt cold air and bama tuner. Seems like everybody likes the jlt the best. 2. From what I read 4.10s are good for a auto and 3.73s for a stick. And lastly I have no clue what exhaust that is lol

Alright thanks, I'll go with what you said.

And I still haven't found out what kind of exhaust those are, I've never seen them before so that's why I'm so curious.

I'd go with the 4.10's since yours is an automatic. The 4.10's were one of my favorite mods. You really feel the difference when you takeoff.

Alright thanks.

Also I think the exhaust is from the Shelby GT-H, but I could be terribly wrong.

If you plan on doing power addres down the line (supercharger, turbo etc) you may want to think about adding 3.73 instead of 4.10 gears - even on an automatic.

I have an 08 auto and did 3.73 and have a supercharger. You really feel the different w/just changing the gears though.

I had a diablosport intune tuner - it was great - loved the custom tunes and free tunes for life. But when I did the supercharger the installer changed me over to SCT because he had all his custom tunes on that brand.

As for CAI...not sure. I went cheap and got the Stack Racing CAI. I didn't notice much of a difference - it's more the tune/tuner.
