Thanks, I really just wanted to be talked back down to reality. Your suggestion is a good one! Does the BAMA 87 tune require (or benefit from) a CAI?

"Fix" it or trade it?

I have a 2012 V6 base with the performance package. I like the way it drives. I wish the lower RPM power was better and the MPG too. I get 26mpg. I also wish it had a few nicer interior bits....

Crossed my mind, but I dont drive on the weekends much, so I enjoy my time in the stang! I will just have to live with 27mpg on regular gas (pretty nice actually)

Hope it lasts a few 100k miles :)

So that begs the question, why not put a CAI stock on a Boss 302? Its certainly not an expense issue is it? Emissions?

I was talking to a friend, and he asked if the Boss 302 uses a CAI. I looked, it has what looks like a regular air box, but it says cold air on it ...which is it?

Ya, I am having the same quandary as the OP. It seems most folks do both a CAI and a tune, so its kinda hard to quantify where the gains come from. Like you, I drive below 5k RPM (highway) most of...

Hey all,

I mostly drive like a granny (or grandpa) and I cannot manage to do more than 26/27 with the V6PP. But I do drive 70 consistently. In my car thats around 2k RPM if I recall.
