bumping up the torque

I have a really nice '04 SVT Cobra 'vert with a K&N air filter and a std. re-tune from SCT. Does anyone think I could experience an increase in HP/torque if I added some type of after market air intake unit? The car is pretty fast as it is, and I don't see myself getting much more out of it....

Your comments would be much appreciated.

not much just with an intake...a smaller pulley and tune is the way to go for real gains, or get a tune for E85 if you really wanna hear that baby scream...but I hear ya, 400rwhp is pretty frickin fast for the street, more power isn't really what my Cobra needs either
+1 ^^ thats the way to go for the most bang for you buck and not spending to much. If you do go to a smaller pulley just remember that your maintenance schedule for your super charger gets cut in instead of changing the oil in it every 70k you will be looking at around 30-35k
OP, this article is a nice read, shows before and after results of each bolt on item, cai, catback, and pulley. I have done the cai, and catback with no tune. My results are not much over stock. I plan on a pulley with tune this winter as well as upgrades to the suspension, I have bad wheel hop. The results in this article seems to be consistent with what other guys are getting.
