CAI Question

I've been reading the threads about CAI and have narrowed my search down to either the MAC CAI and the K&N FIPK. What would you recommend as the better choice for a 97 v6 stang and I would be looking at 5-9 hp gains. Also I read that if your car is stock as mine currently is then the best solution would be to put in a K&N filter and remove the silencer. the hp gains would be the same as getting a CAI is that true? Thanks for the help

Don't remove the silencer, that worked with Fox-bodied cars, but with v6s, it defeats the purpose, because you suck in fan backwash. You actually make less power with the silencer removed.

Your best bets are a Demolet kit, or an FIPK II.


Woe to him who builds his palace by unrighteousness,his upper rooms by injustice,making his countrymen work for nothing...Does it make you a king to have more and more cedar?Did not your father have food and drink?He did what was right and just,so all went well with him. He defended the cause of the poor and needy,and so all went well...But your eyes and your heart are set only on dishonest gain,on shedding innocent blood and on oppression and extortion. Jer 22:13, 15-17
