New Member Quick Question

Hello,

I just bought my first Mustang GT 2000 (23,000 miles) couple of quick questions.

1. Best Price for a K&N Cold Air Intake, Cheapest I found is $204.00

2. Best Snow Tires, do you just add them to the rear or all the way around?

Thanks,

Hi JS4.6

Best Price for the CAI will be on ebay. I don't know how much they go for, but its usually the cheapest place.

Snow tires:
Get the GoodYear Ultra Grip GW3 (or so).
Don't go bigger than 225 mm or you won't bite thru the snow and mud.
YES: It is worth it buying 4 tires, because traction is only one thing!
Being able to stop before you hit a tree: "priceless"

I'll agree on the snow tires statement. Traction is a good thing and can help you avoid much more expensive things than decent tires. Are you dead set on the K&N or are you open to other suggestions?

Check out www.jlttruecoldair.com I had one before I put the blower on my car. I picked up 10 peak rwhp and the bottom end torque came up even more than that. The kit looks sharp and you can have it painted the color of the car. I paid $200 for mine.

It is highly recommended to go with 4 snows if you can afford it. Buy an inexpensive set of wheels and buy Nokian studless snows. The Europeans race GT cars during the winter. Almost all competitors use Nokian snows. Simply the best high performance snow tire made. Go to the Nokian web site and find out why the best snows are made in Finland ( the land of snow and ice).

I just went to the Nokian site and all I can say is that if you go through the info on this site you will know more about tires and snows in particular than most employees of tire stores. I tried to put a link in but I can't get the right one. If you use a search engine it will show as Nokian Tyres.
