I, like others, recommend forgeting about cold air intakes. Get a 2002 mustang GT MAF and airbox, a 99 mustang air intake tube (for AIT sensor) and a BOC tune. It does make a huge difference in how the car feels. A cold air intake might make the intake sound a little louder, but not worth $190 IMHO

All Glory to God!
