So I've decided I'm going to buy a tuner and a CAI at the same time. These will be my first mods to my car...and I was set on K&N for the longest time until last night I was reading a lot of good things about JLT cold air intakes. So now I'm up in the air about which one to go with.
Does anyone have any facts or proof that JLT is "better" or provides a little bit more HP?

K&N are no longer at the top of the performance chain for many performance cars these days. For Mustangs especially, there are far better CAI choices including C&L, JLT, Steeda, and Airaide. Even the FRPP Bullitt style is superior to the K&N.
08 S197 GT Auto: FRPP Strut Tower Brace, FRPP Bullitt CAI, Bama 91-P Tune, VBX remaned valve body with Superior Transmission Shift Kit.
Pending upgrades: Shaftmasters Aluminum 3.5" DS, FRPP 3.73 gears, Axle back exahust (?)

Thank you guys for the responses, yeah now I'm setting my eyes on the JLT haha. I guess it was since K&N was top of the line for a long time is why I was going with that but I glad I discovered JLT before I purchased anything
I bought a K&N CAI for my old mustang (2001). I wasn't very happy with the fitment. The ducting to the throttle body wasn't perfect. It came off slightly crooked than it was supposed to. The OCD in me just frowned every time opening my hood.
Would that be an issue on every car? Doubt it, but it bothered the $%^& out of me
