Which is better? JLT CAI vs. STEEDA CAI
After reading all the threads on numerous sites on who has the better CAI - JLT or STEEDA???
We here at BBR decided to end all the controversy.
We tested BOTH of these cold air intake systems on my 2011 Mustang GT 5.0L Automatic.
We did baseline on the car on a dynojet dyno and it made 350 rwhp / 332 rwtq 100% completely stock on 93 Octane fuel.
We then put a tune int it with a stock setup using SCT software. It then made 375 rwhp / 354 rwtq on 93 octane with JUST A TUNE.
Then we installed a JLT Carbon Fiber CAI onto the car and it jumped up to an amazing 393 rwhp / 377 rwtq on 93 octane.
Then we took off the JLT and installed the STEEDA CAI onto the same car and it made 393 rwhp / 376 rwtq on 93 octane.
So, to our findings based off our testing of both of these cold air intake systems is....
BOTH the JLT and the STEEDA CAI's are BAD ASS!!!!!
They both picked up 40+ horsepower with one of our BBR Xtreme tunes incorporated with them.

Those are stout gains over a very well designed factory air box.

Great job guys! Good to see an independent test list this.

Goes to show that both companies are a wise choice for a Cold Air Intake system.

I went with the Steeda because it could be painted & looks sharp when matching the car. And we have a wholesale account with them.

Nice results, and nice gain even with just the tune.
When you installed the CAI's, did you need to make additional changes to the tune? Were those SAE numbers, BTW?

^ ^ ^ ^ That does look sharp in deed.
