Im running a BBK it looks nice but i dont like it for 2 reasons the bend before the Mass air meter and it made of metel Like Pony said id go with a JLT bigger tubing,straight shot from the filter to the MAf and its made of plastic so its not as prone to heat wash. A buddy just installed one of these and its a bit of a bitch to install he claims but its supposidly the best on the marcket............Mat at the mustang shop can hook you up with a good price

Well i did some digging and was suprized to find they do make a 3.9L!
But JLT doesntseem to make a CAI for your car atleast not that i could find
but the guys on the V6 sites rave over these systems http://www.tunableinduction.com/

thats what id go with if i were you i never likes the K&N i thought they looked like ***!





After all this CAI talk any body wanna buy a slightly used BBK chrome CAI for a 99-04' GT?teeth:

I've always had great results with the K&N units, I prefer performance to flash personally though.

I've got a before and after dyno run with my CAI.

Stock '99 3.8 with K&N filter 159.9 hp at the rear wheels. With a BBK CAI 179.9 hp at the wheels. We were absolutely shocked at the result! There is a noticable difference, not much, but you can feel it.

I bought it used off ebay for $70. Best $70 mod i've ever done!

But what we've noticed on the dyno over the last few years, is that some cars take to bolt on mods well, and others don't. kinda hit and miss!

Cheers!
