the GT350 should be around 4.3 and the R version should be about .04 less

Hi guys. Does anyone have "official" GT350/R 0-60mph times? I hear anything from less than 3.5 to 5's

I'm wanting to purchase a cold air intake kit for my '16 GT350.  I've seen the one K&N offers, but does anyone else have any other recommendations?  Is a tune required?

JLT makes a popular intake. Most require a tune.

I saw that one as well. Either way, I live in Commie CA, so I'd have to order and ship to my father in TX and he'd have to mail it to me.  Is it personal preference for the JLT over the K&N, or is the JLT better?

It looks better than the k&n and I'm sure it flows a bit better. It's all over YouTube.

I have done business with JLT for a LONG time and they have great products. My 750HP GT500 used only JLT products. 

 

Now the tune, not as critical on normally aspirated car  as it was on my GT500, I went with VMP for my tune. 

 

But a tune and a JLT CAI from JLT I would endorse whole heartedly.

 

Once I get my oil consumption issue behind me, I will opt for this as well as a set of good headers and do it all at once.

 

I want to FEEL the difference !!!!

Ok, it really sounds like JLT is the way to go!  I'll keep reading up and look on youtube some more.

 

Smokum, I noticed you previously owned a '90 SHO.  My first car was a '93 SHO...loved it!

Back In the day I was very involved in SHO's..... first super charged SHO in the country featured in Super Ford Magazine and learned over a period of time

to do tranny work ... pull motors and completely rebuild them etc .... had a great side business for a period of time since not many people knew how to work

on these cars.

Oh, nice!  We subscribed to the SHO magazine back in the day, and had all the "bolt-on" upgrades available...nothing as serious as a super charger, but still pissed off plenty of fox-body 5.0 owners.  The only downside was the 60k maintenance required on the valves.  You HAD to find a specialist, because none of the Ford dealers knew anything about the car.  The first time around, everything went great, but it was never the same after the second time around...

I learned how to do take the intake off .... than i learned how to do take all the front covers off for belts and water pump and CPS sensor replacement ...... just slowly

step by step got deeper into the motor and finally pulled a motor.

 

The SHOFORUM which is semi defunct had tons of how to pages to do such work and lots of people you could email
