Aftermarket Air Intake...

Hi folks
Any info is appreciated. Looking for a new air intake for my 4.6L 3v. Donít really want to have to plug in 92 octane as it is hard to get here N of Kingston.
So I feel a tune is NOT required. Any experience, comments appreciated.
Tx,
FrankieMachina

I'd go either Steeda.ca or American Muscle. Not sure if any intakes can be run tune free but i'm sure one or two can. If not get a tune for whatever octane you want. They can customize the tunes.

tx def67!...had good luck with AM for the sequence tail lights and other items but last two times I tried to order the items came up back ordered for months. A local speed shop has a bbk with oiled filter for 350$ C with no tune. I may go back and chat with them. Have you installed one?
Cheers mate,

Frankie...modern Mustangs have a pretty well designed air intake system from the factory. A CAI that doesn't require a tune will be of little to no benefit (other than looks, and a bit of noise). If looks are what you want, go with what you like the look of. If you want a bit more power, a CAI that requires a tune will give the best results (I would suggest C&L). If you don't have a tuner yet, I would suggest starting there first, with an SCT tuner. You can get tunes for any octane level. That will make a much more noticeable difference in the feel of the car than a CAI alone will. Is your car automatic, or stick?

...Thanks Roddy...C&L is on my short list. Appreciate the info regarding a tune. Usually plug in Esso hi-test so I will be able to tune to that 91Octane.
Cheers, see you around Eastern Ontario!
