The fact of the matter is that if you want to make "real" horsepower and torque gains on your mustang or any mustang you're going to have to do it the way it's always been done for decades. Hardware. Nothing against tunes, they certainly have their place and when you make hardware changes you know you'll have to make tune changes. But the reality is that a tune and a CAI at best are going to net you about 15 to 20 hp and 20 to 25 lb ft torque at a price tag of 5 to 7 hundred dollars on average and even then you'll have to run 93 octane. If you want 50 to 100 or more hp you better start looking at aftermarket heads, turbos or superchargers. Like I said, nothing against tuners and there are a lot of guys that swear by them, but for me personally, if I'm going to put hp gains on my engine it's going to be real gains, not 15 or 20 hp for 600 bucks. No thanks. And that's from a guy who is about to put a BBK CAI on my car. It's just for looks. Whatever gains it renders are so small as to be pointless.

How does a Roush fit on a v6? Do they make them for the v6 or what? =\

I thought I read on here where a guy wanted a GT intake on his v6 and they don't fit.

AirRaid makes a V6 intake and Roush sticks their name and pricetag on it,
so to answer your question, if it is made for a GT you can bet its made for
a V6 application as well

It will sure sound mean from the front coming
towards you when at low RPMs and WideOpenThrottle
conditions...

Other that that, CAI + NO tune =s waste of money.
Thats why the Roush is being sold for so cheap used.
You will soon be selling it as well and the cycle continues
until the landfill wins.

I question your thought process based on the fact that you wouldn't spend the few extra $$'s for a GT; a platform on which you can get even more "real gains" for your bucks. But then, I always scratch my head over modding the V6 when a person could have bought a V8; but also knowing that it's NOT something that every V6 owner had as an option when making the purchase... never mind. I'm just rambling...

You'll note I said "if" Nuke. Right now I have no plans to modd my V6. It's just fine the way it is and it's a great daily driver. I'll do a few dress up things here and there like the BBK CAI I just put on, but I'm not going to bother with seriously modding this car.

The new and improved Airaid CAI has whats called MVT.

The secret to AIRAID’s new 2005-2006 Mustang GT V8 Intake

The removable MVT assures correct air/fuel ratios at all rpm ranges.
It is also removable for additional air flow capabilities with
customer-provided custom electronic tuning.

MODULAR VENTURI TECHNOLOGY

AIRAID’s hot, new intake system for the 2005-2006 Mustang GT V-8
(p/n 450-172) is actually two intake systems in one. AIRAID’s newest
Cool Air Dam intake utilizes Modular Venturi Technology to generate an
additional 17 horsepower and 21 lb/ft of torque while maintaining proper
air and fuel ratios across the entire RPM range. The system boasts a
4-inch roto-molded intake tube, larger than any other intake on the
market for a BEEFY look, that is mated to a lightweight composite Cool Air Dam.
What makes AIRAID’s system different from the rest is the Modular Venturi Tube.
The MVT is what maintains proper air/fuel ratios with the stock electronic tuning.

But in order to take advantage of such serious performance bolt on such as high-lift
camshafts, big-port cylinder heads, headers and other high-performance parts, the
MVT can be removed for even more horsepower and torque gains provided customer-supplied
custom electronic tuning is installed.
This gives serious Mustang performance enthusiasts
the ability to retain the AIRAID intake as they add serious performance upgrades to the car
without worrying about the need to upgrade the air intake for added air flow.


So thats a pretty blanket response as to it not needing a tune...

CAIs that dont require a tune dont respond very well to custom tunes.
Its physically impossable.
The MVT technology is available for the GT's only. I have a V6, which does not have it. Per my experience with the V6 Airaid CAI, it will not gain you 17 HP w/ out a custom tune. However, once I uploaded my custom brenspeed tune, I felt a HUGE increase in throttle response and power gain. I was amazingly surprised how much the car woke up with the 87 custom tune!!!

I was on the stage 3 website, they had one by Airaid and one by Roush. They look exactly the same and the Roush was $30 more.
