Hey all! I have had my Mustang about 2 week and I am wondering if it is worth it to install a CAI or not? Does it give you much gain? Does it hurt gas mileage? Sorry if the question has been asked before, but didn't see it.

Depending on how you drive your vehicle, the benefits of having a cold air intake are usually quite rewarding. Aside from the deep and exhilarating sound of an intake filter crushing inwards, a cold air intake improves gas mileage as well as performance. I would recommend installing a reputable aftermarket cold air intake system!! Look at companies such as BBK or K&N.

better MPG, better throttle response (with tune), better looking engine bay, and better exhaust tone.

downside: costs $300 that you will be happy you spent on it :)

install is easy all youd need is a screw driver (depending on brand)... however when you are purchasing your CAI make sure you check to see if you need a new tune or if the stock one will work with it...

I have the BBK intake. I didnt notice any performance gains, but my MPG went up a bit and it sounds even meaner at wide open throttle! Not to mention the stock intake is disgustingly ugly

just remove the factory filter and install a K&N filter it will accomplish the same thing for a lot less money. cai's are so over rated spend the money elsewhere.
