You only gain power from a tune and 20 wheel horsepower is about right. that air intake and exhaust mods really only affect sound.

Factory Airbox vs. Aftermarket cold air

The fact is, cars with a tune run faster then those with no tune.

No one has been able to show on the strip that an aftermarket cold air intake performs better then the stock air box.

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 tune

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.

hopes

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.

3.66x3.31= 12.1146
3.66x3.55= 12.993...

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.
