Try MAC intakes... I think they've got an 04+ model out now. Don't get one for an 01-03 though because the MAF sensor changed from 03-04

Yeah MAC intakes are good, and defenitly less expensive than k-n. Also if you are looking for performance stuff, you might want to consider getting a SCT/Bama Programmer. You will only hear good things about them on this site....I know i have.

Zach...do you honestly feel an intake kit is not a good performance upgrade? I would like to know before I buy one. I have seem too many TV shows were they dyno a car/truck with stock intake, install a performance one, and re-dyno. They always claim 10-20 hp gain.

My buddy tried to coax more power out of his 5.0 stang with intake, hedders, exhaust, chips ect. He finally got pissed one day and spent the big $$ for a supercharger.....now he has REAL power! All the $200+ a pop bolt-ons gave him small gains in power, never the amount that they claimed.

So, should I get a performance intake for my 4.0 or spend the $200+ for a tuner?
