@ 05mustangsoa: Thanks for the information, but I'm not interested about this. I am looking to see the CAI for engine dress up. (main reason I interested in one...)
@ pony_boy: If a CAI is so bad or useless, why does the GT500 has one?
@ JBert: Thanks for your feedback!
@ Thereaper: Thanks to confirm that, been reading this a few times, so that seems to be true. Plus the reviews are mostly positive about this CAI on the American Muscle website...

Because its supercharged.

It needs more air than a naturally aspirated engine... regardless of that, it doesnt mean that additional air is cold.

Superchargers require more air to produce forced induction and make boost.

The GT500 has a completely different engine than the GT, and it is specifically tuned to utilize more air and make more power under boost. It has a different intake manifold, different radiators and an inter cooler. Its heat extractors are more functional as well. The front bumper and grille are different and allow for more air flow as well. All of this works together to produce more power and efficiency and help the engine breathe better and make more power.

I still guarantee you that the air going into an open design filter box will be hotter than a closed design, sealed box. Regardless of the name "Cold Air Intake"

What we really want is
1) cold air
AND
2) more of it
and the Roush design looks about as good as it can get

I wonder if anyone ever compared the area of the duct (aka scoop) in the grille, to the area of the MAF tube? Everyone always wants a bigger MAF tube, but everyone seems to be completely ignoring that all the air has to come in through that duct in the grille, so if the tube is bigger (in area) than the duct, then the duct becomes the limiting factor. Or, you have to pull hot air from the engine compartment and that defeats #1 above.
Actually the Roush is one of the worst intakes to buy on the market for power gains lol. The filter sucks in all the hot air it doesn't seal on the hood like you think it would. Our factory intakes are pretty good and AEM is the only company to improve upon it. Most open filter design intakes actually lose power.

I don't blame you one bit haha. I just see a lot of people selling there used Roush intakes all the time. It's for a reason...

The performance is in the tune. The CAI is mostly eye candy on the 5.0.

Not only that (and sorry to any guys that have it) but the Roush intake looks like crap.

If you want a good looking intake get the JLT or the carbon fiber Airaid.

Sorry AC but you would have to give up the Ford Racing tune if you went for the steeda cai. You may want to look into the Airaid with the MVT installed I know of guys on the this forum that run the airaid and the ford racing tune. I hope this helps you out.

Thanks SilverStangRider, but I'm not willing to give up my Ford racing Tune, so I guess I'll stay the way I am.
From what I've read, I won't loose much skipping a CAI...

The Roush CAI is a waste of money. I bought one and returned it to AM as it does not seal against the factory intake. There was a significant gap and the MAF was constantly measuring 30+ degrees over ambient temperature. Bought the Airaid and no problems...
