Question 2004 Mustang GT, Intake And Underdrive Pulley

Hello everyone i am new to the forums. I have an 04 gt with an slp exhaust system so far. i am in college and tight on cash so next mods will be an intake and an underdrive pulley. i would like to buy my intake with the idea in mind that a tune will be coming soon. any suggestions for brands?

I personally wouldn't do the pulleys and I would go with a intake and tuner combo personally I would go with JLT

I live close to the american muscle warehouse. how come the bbk and stack racing are cheaper than say the jlt or the steeda? i just want to get a good product. i believe in you get what you pay for.

Um because JLT and Steeda are higher quality I would stay far far away from anything BBK. You get what you pay for.

There's a couple reasons:

Steeda you're going to pay for the name.

Stack Racing and BBK, because steel tube is cheap to get and bend to the right shape, plus the filters are cheaper.

The JLT would be my pick. It's plastic, so it would be more expensive to shape to the correct profile, and it comes with a really great filter, the S&B Powerstack.

+1 on the JLT RAI. I just got the same combo that Shorties did, and felt a little bump in top end. Throttle response is smoother than stock thanks to the Accufab 75mm throttle body. +10 on the combo Shorties mentioned!

If you really want to be picky with a CAI, I would choose the JLT for sure, but to be completely honest, all CAI's are going to give you roughly the same gains, and therefore I would choose the cheapest one I could find. I would buy the $84 one off of American Muscle and save myself $150 to put towards the UDP's. As far as UDP's, there is no other way to go than Steeda's.

I would agree that the power difference is minor to none, but the problem I have with most cheaper chrome CAI's is the quality of the product. I've seen a few of those cheaper CAI's start pitting and rusting within a year, but I haven't dealt with the one from AM yet, so no comment on that one.

Someone mentioned BBK underdrive pulleys and I threw up in my mouth a little bit. Don't do it.
