It seems like a cold-air pattern is developing here in Tech Inspection, as we're once again working with the latest in CAI technology for '10 Mustang GTs. This month, Steeda's all-new ProFlow Cold-Air Kit (PN 555-3152; $399.99) is our test fodder.
The new CAI now sits as the latest in a long legacy of airflow enhancers from Steeda, and we took advantage of one of Big Steve's trips down to Steeda's facility to find out how well it performs.
As you can imagine, the in-house '10 project Mustang being used for this report eventually will be outfitted with everything Steeda develops for '10 Mustangs. For now, however, bolting-on and dyno-evaluating the company's newest "cold-air" is our focus.
Follow along with the accompanying photos and captions to see Steeda's Matt Bouyea perform the quick-and-easy surgery and find out how it performs on a new 'Stang.
