Mr. Skeptical over here haha well I understand your point, and agree with the logic, you don't really know if you'll see those gains on the road. But they're gains non-the-less. There are other qualities these have that people like, such as under hood appearance and change in exhaust note. No, I don't think the open filter designed ones (such as JLT) are truly a "CAI" but, With the proper design I do think after market can definitely make a better intake than Ford puts on the car. As with pretty much every other part on the vehicle. Also, if these open filter designs were really not any better than the closed air box, why does ford put them standard on the GT500? Why not have those come with a closed air box?
