When you re-install the factory MAF housing it will not fit flush against the new plastic air box with the metal MAF screen in place. Is it normal to leave out the screen when installing and will it cause harm to the MAF.

    Great Intake

    I went with this intake cause I liked the heat shield. It was a pretty simple install that took about an hour, most of that time was simply trying to out one of the provided plugs into the hole *rolls eyes* besides that its great. Adds a nicer sound to my engine I definitely recommend.

    Airaid CAI dry filter

    Installed this in under an hour and look great under the hood. Not much of a performance gain but would still recommend. Looks a lot better then factory intake system and opens the door later for more power with a tune and bigger MAF.

    Before I upgraded to my 2000 GT, I owned a 2002 v6 and installed the SR Cold Air Intake in it. Just installed this Airaid in my GT today, and I'm not too impressed compared to the SR. The fitment was a little frustrating, you will definitely need an extra set of hands for the MAF housing. PCV valve also broke during install, top snapped right off while fitting the CAI and had to run out and buy a new one, so be sure to look out and listen for that. Was looking forward to the sucking and whistling sound that was previously on my v6 when I installed the SR Performance Intake, but this CAI is very quiet, which some may like better. Haven't noticed real MPG gains, slightly more get-up-and-go when I press the throttle, but not as big of a gain as I noticed when I installed the SR on my v6. I really like the efficiency of the filter and how it doesn't set in the wheel well versus the SR Intake; if I'd drive through a puddle, my car would sputter and I could almost hear it sucking up water. Overall, an okay product, I'd say you could get something just as good if not better for cheaper, however.

    Looks good, sounds good, fits great!

    I bought this to replace a Spectre CAI that the previous owner installed on my '99 GT. The finish and packaging of all the parts Airaid supplied was impressive, especially the Synthamax filter. Overall, everything goes together according to the directions, but you'll probably spend more than an hour getting the job finished. It helps to have an extra pair of hands when attaching the MAF housing to the velocity stack and airbox - you have to line up two gaskets and four bolts, and this took me a little time. The fit of all the parts was spot on once everything was together. The finished product looks good in the engine compartment, and I especially like the black filter. I can definitely hear the intake when getting on the throttle now. The car is in stock tune, so I'm not sure how the intake will affect mileage, but it looks and sounds 1000 times better than what was on the car before. All in all, time & money well spent.

    Wanted to add more HP to the stang while adding something that looks great under the hood. easy to install but if your adding this to a larger diameter throttle body you may need to pick up a larger hose clamp even though the boot will stretch over either size.

    Airaid cold air intake

    I purchased this due to my KandN FIPK mounting kit getting stripped out, bought it used a couple years ago. Overall the non oiled filters seem to be nicer and you can still wash them. I noticed the mounting areas for this kit to be better then the KandN. I can't say there was any change in performance but I would recommend this kit over the others any day including the cheap ones sold here and on Ebay.
