Those who have followed my journal / blog, know that I have a 2007 Mustang GT, which I recently upgraded
with Flowmaster exhaust and a Magnaflow X-Pipe.
Well, I was expecting it tomorrow, so when my wife called me at work, right after lunch to give me the news, I was beside myself with excitement.
Delievered to our door was my new Steeda cold air intake along with the Steeda inlet elbow. Also delivered was a SCT X3 power flash tuner for my car's computer.
Well, needless to say, I couldn't wait to get it installed, so I hopped in my car, and went back home.
about 2 hours later, I was driving back to work with a dumbfounded grin in my face.
People had told me that a tune with a cold-air intake upgrade would seriously change / improve the sound of the car, but I was way more interested in the power upgrade. Well, I now can totally understand why people emphasize the change in sound just as much, if not more, than the increase in power.
I cannot believe the way my mustang sounds now!
It's like the whole car has been in a groggy state of being half-awake since birth, and this upgrade has basically woke it up and given it a shot of caffeine!
The sound .... well... The best I could do to explain it to you is to record it and attach it to this entry. So, you can click the play button top-right to hear for yourself.
The first thing I noticed was the decrease in time for the car to rev up. It now revs much quicker than before.
There also is a noticeable *pop* along with a sucking sound when accellerating quickly. I just love it.
I've only driven it to work so far, so, I haven't really opened it up yet, but that is sure to come.
So, if you're thinking of upgrading to a cold-air intake, or considering tuning your car's computer, with what I know so far, I highly recommend it.
I'm sure I won't be changing my opinion when I can get a few minutes to actually drive it, either.
