Default Just picked up a 2014 GT/CS

... and absolutely love it. I know, I know, it didn't really happen unless there are pictures. Well, I had to brag a little. I'll post some later this weekend once I get time.
Traded up from my '09 GT and happily, I'm not looking back

Need some starting advice/opinion on axle-backs. I had Bassani's on the '09 and they were great except, when on the highways or cruising around at certain speeds I would get drone. Didn't bother me so much as it did the Mrs. Reviews on the 11-14 version say little to no drone. Can anyone out there confirm?
The Roush Axle-backs sound like a good option as well.

Are the advertised power gains by replacing the OEM CAI as good as advertised/worth the extra $$? Can I just get tunes for my car without an aftermarket CAI?

Ghost cam tune worth it?

Not too sure on the axel-backs I know the roush ones sound really good. As far as the CAI and tune, you can tune the car without a CAI. You do pick up a few hp by replacing the intake but if you pair it with a tune it really helps achieve those claimed 20-30+ hp.

I have a 2011 GT, and I tried a few things that have turned out well. I put the K&N CAI on, as well as the Ford Racing X pipe and the Ford Racing Stainless Steel Sport mufflers. I also used the ProCal tuner and have had great performance. I had the Roush intake on before, but the K&N is by far the best. That is my dependable street performance package and I have not had any problems. The dealership has had no problems with these mods even though I have installed them myself properly.

Completely different. Shifting is smoother, steering is tighter, acceleration is faster

the Ghost Cam Tune is cool sounding at idle.... Sounds like a heavy loping motor in a classic hot rod.

BUT....

Because of the heat build up out the exhaust from this tune.... It requires you have no Catalytic's installed. Until I dropped the cats with an O/R Tru-X the boys at BAMA would not provide me with the Ghost Cam Tune.

Congrats! I went with the GT500 axle-backs. Didn't want anything too loud, but better than stock.

Roush axle backs are great. I have them on my daily driver, no drone issues. They do pop on deceleration, but I like that, so... something you should be aware of.

Congrats on the new GT!

Can't go wrong with a JLT intake IMO
