1st: Try the search button, this question has been asked many times before.

2nd: All 96-04 4.6 mustangs come with a cold air intake from the factory and therefore an aftermarket one is kinda a waste of money. I would spend the money else where, like gears or exhaust.

3rd: Welcome!

^I agree , This question has been beat to death.
To Op welcome to forum..The stock CAI is pretty well designed.
As for aftermarket units I hear JLT is pretty good but stock one does the job well enough.

All about the same as said above. If you just want some dressup pick which looks best to you.

A cold air intake is a complete waste of money. Spend elsewhere.
