I'm new to the Mustang mod world. Does the K&N Air Charger kit for the 06 GT really give noticable HP/performance improvement? How does it affect the mpg? Any help would be appreciated.

Independent dyno tests show that it adds approx. 7-10 hp at the rear wheels.

WRT gas mileage, it may improve it slightly because I believe that it leans out the A/F ratio to a small degree.
However, most owners probably get worse gas mileage with it as they're now driving around at WOT more often.

I've got one on my V6 and it did add HP. Now the gas thing...dunno. I drive WAY more spirited so any gain is eaten up. :smoke:

I installed my K&N CAI last week. Been driving it around with no problems whatsoever. Still running 87 octane. Definitely can feel a little extra acceleration with it in there. Sound of the intake and exhaust are different (for the better!). No tune required but I decided to get a 93 octane tune just for the heck of it. Got that coming next week I hope.
