if you think your going to get any more horsepower from a different intake, you are seriously misinformed.

a 40$ K+N air filter adds just as much horsepower as the 200$ intake you bought... just FYI.

The stock mustang intake tube is actually a CAI, so the gains are minimal to none with an aftermarket system... just pick up a K+N filer.. if you already have the CAI i'd leave it on.

Put your stock intake on and throw in a K&N filter, its already a CAI.

i dont have the stock one anymore. and no i didnt think it would put out more horsepower, more airflow is basically what im saying, and i kinda said it wrong, its the JLT ram air system, plus i wanna paint the intake white. ha idk, i was jw. and thanks mu71L4710n, i did not know that.

doesnt matter which way you worded it. they both mean the same thing.

more airflow = more horsepower. so nomatter how you word it, its still the same result. if intake A gives more airflow than intake B, then intake A also gives more horsepower than intake B because more air into the motor = more horsepower.
