Wow, I've seen you on here before and you still don't get it... Do you believe the same thing about headers, x pipes, and mufflers? I mean if the ford engineers are the smartest people on the planet and they really want the absolute best performance from the factory, then all the factory parts must be way superior than anything else out there right?:banghead: I know I'm stupid for trying to talk sense to you, and obviously nobody else wants to waste their time with you anymore... Just look up all the 1/4 mile videos, dyno videos, etc... on youtube.com and every single one of them installed a CAI first and a tune! Yes they do work. And gas mileage goes up.Isn't there a thread here that states that they do not adjust any parameters on a tune for cai vs stock?
If that truly is the case, then I can only conclude the cai is not all that and a bag of chips. Look at it this way: As soon as the throttle is even slightly closed, the restriction is not in the air intake, but the TB. Which makes me wonder how you get better mileage. I have to think that the engineers at ford pull hairs out of their sack to improve mileage. If they could get more mileage that they can advertise with, they WOULD ALL HAVE IT. And the stock intake is pretty much cold air.
But, this horse has been beaten to death. Whatever. I been drinkin.
