If all you are doing is a drop in filter or cold air intake without a tune then no you are wasting your time and money. Even if you do a tune and intake most of your gains are from the tune and not so much the intake. These new intakes and all are great from the factory. The 2005-2009 era they really started building them right and by the 2011+ they were building these Mustangs GREAT! Just my .02 and of course there are better styling and looking intakes so it depends on what you are going for overall.

(I have owned a few non Mustang cars over the years as well, but always try to have a Mustang with it or come quickly back to a Mustang!)
