Factory Airbox vs. Aftermarket cold air

tuner with air intake

a tune is a great mod and worth it, cold air intake is still not worth it. A tune without the intake is maybe 10hp less.

a cold air intake does not give you an additional 25 or 30 horsepower,...

vmp performance tune is the superior tune for automatics. I like the ford pro cal tune for daily driving. I have both and the vmp tune pulls hard up top.

Im hoping they will be like the difference between a manual gt with 3.55s and one with 3.73s. The math suggests it should be so at least for first gear.

3.73 performance package

"Ford puts a 3.73 gear in the manual performance pack for a reason, but whatever"

automatic with 3.31s is like a manual with 3.73s in first gear. 3.55s is like 4.10s, too steep in my opinion.

Which would be more noticeable on an automatic switching from the factory 3.15s to 3.31s or an aluminum drive shaft ? I know both are small gains.
