Well, "Hello my name is Russ". (as the crowd responds) "welcome Russ".... "I have been an addict for the better part of my life.... getting this Mustang just brought out more of my addiction. I love to make her faster and sound tougher and use I it in every way to make me happier every day and I read, I read, I read,...ALL that I can to help her along to be better , faster and more important to me...."mdprice said:Maybe I am missing something, but it seems like there are a lot of folks who are investing in a CAI / tuner / Dyno upgrade and gaining some 10 to 25 odd RWHP.
Whats the big payoff? With 300 HP coming from the factory, having 320 in return for decreased gas mileage, risking voiding a factory warranty, or worse inviting engine problems on a really sweet car seems to only offer downsides.
I guess if you want to beat other Mustang owners by a second in the 1/4 mile then go for it.
Last note, by modifying the intake / outtake aren't you messing up the sound that engineers worked endlessly so you could reproduce the sound from the Bullet car in the movie.
This is only my opinion, I am sure others will think I am losing it.
