Cold Air Intake

Fellas,
I have a FX4 Ecoboost. Considering putting a CAI on her. I just spoke to my dealer and they say that CAI and cat back exhaust will NOT VOID my warranty but if a tuner touches it they will know as the computer tracks all that stuff. SO not messing with tuners...

Is anyone out there seeing benefits with a CAI? If so, what brand?

Anyone running a cat back exhaust? Benefits?

Thanks to all - i am just researching around.

THanks

I gave up as for now to get it dyno'd before and after installation of the afe CAI. I went ahead and installed the CAI today and you can really hear the turbos whistle. I haven't driven it very far today for the initial test ride. More results to follow

So far I like it - can hear the turbos whistle - I have only driven it 15-20 miles so far. I was getting 18-20 mpg before the CAI and I might see a slight change +\ - so time will tell.
