So as you all know I drive a V6 Mustang, which means it needs all the help it can get (power-wise) so I installed this today..

Haha, yeah actually..when you punch the gas really hard you can hear it sucking and when it's idling and the AC compressor clicks on you can hear it sucking..it sounds alot better than stock..and throttle response is alot better.

K&N = best intakes for the money. AEM and Injen make better intakes for imports and smaller engined cars.

Glad you've finally started on the performance mods, haha. I would suggest some more n/a bolt-ons. Get some headers and a full exhaust and you should be gaining ~25-30 hp from stock

I dont really want the sound that I'd get from that, and it's a little more than I want to spend. As of now the next things I'm getting are:

-complete underdrive pulley kit/belt
-throttle body spacer

That boosts me up to near 230 HP /225-30 ft. lbs.

I could always get a new throttle body, and a Superchips tuner (22 horsepower)..

Anyway, stock my Mustang has 190 horses. The K&N was dynotested to show a 12 HP increase so I'm at 202 right now. Still 8 shy of my friend's 05 Mustang...

Uhhh, the 190hp is most likely to the crank. Try getting your stang dyno'd and you'll see what I mean. The pulley kit and belt is a great upgrade for getting more power to the ground, definetly a good investment. Also, just because the K&N was dyno'd to increase 12hp, doesn't mean it will on your application. Stuff like this is like paintball guns, things are different for everybody.

I wish lol

And I know what you mean tib, I'm just saying..that's what the stat sheet says so since I don't have access to a dyno..BUT I did happen to come across a Mustang just like mine that they tested..except this one must have another mod.

The heat shield will actually help you alot so its a good thing you chose to put it on. If you left it off it would be a warm air intake and nobody likes that :grin:
I installed the same intake on my dad's F150 around october and I can say im really pleased with it, it makes that 5.4 come alive. Now that im back from spring break, time for a magnaflow side exit system:yay:
