So I presume most of you probably have some type of CAI installed and was curious if you noticed any increase or decrease in your MPG. I don't really want to mod my Goat too much as I just sold my highly modified Mustang a few weeks back and don't have any desire to go down that road again. I love the factory warrantee and want to keep it. With that being said, I am limiting the amount of mods I would like to go with and this being one of the easiest and cheapest I wanted to do some research first.

All helpful comments are greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance!!!

The Lingenfelter CAI is a good choice for the Goat, and you'll probably see a slight increase in your MPG. The next mod you might consider would be a new shifter, so long as it's not the B&M...and provided that you have a manual transmission. My CSVT had a lot better brakes than my GTO so I did a cheap upgrade to my GOAT right after I bought it; factory C5 brakes pads on the front...cheap, easy and improved.:eek:

b.t.w. You sound a little like my brother (MeandmyKB) that posts at stangnet ...he sold his Mustang after he KBd it. It was faster than my GTO, but he blew his tranny while racing a modded F-body. The race was a draw, a first for him. Fixed the tranny and sold it to buy a new truck. Says he won't ever spend that kind of money on mods again. I think he's waiting on the Camaro, new GTO, etc and then just drive the thing.

Which shifter would you recommend?

How much are the C5 brake pads? Do they give off more brake dust? Are they a direct replacement?

It happens, a car turns into a money pit and before you know it you've blown 20k on a car you no longer want. Coulda bought a SICK ride with the money I spent on my Stang but I will say that I did love working on her for the 4 years I had her. Oh well...live 'n learn!

GMM RIP shifter seems to be the best. Sources for online purchasing are listed in the drivetrain section. There's a fairly new thread devoted to the GMM shifter.

OEM C5 pads were around 70.00. No dust as far as I can tell.
