JLT makes the nicest looking cai's i've ever seen. On my previous mustangs I've put on MAC cai's and they have been great to me. I haven't personally seen MAC's kit for a terminator but I imagine they look as good as anything out there that's chromed.

I personally just have a K&N on the end of my mass air and called it a day with mine

To answer your last question, I'm running a preditor tuner and the one and only BOB KURGAN did my tune..

The JLT stuff is nice and makes great power, but their install instructions are garbage and the CAI that goes into the fenderwell needs to be installed from under the pass. front wheel well. Its a bitch to install the kit without damaging the filter or the intake pipe.

I've run a K&N FIPK setup with a 10 inch S&B filter for years with good success.

I personally don't like the fender mount style only because it's more prohibitive for changing/cleaning the filter and I like to do that fairly often. Doesn't mean the JLT isn't a nice setup, I just like the simple, underhood style myself.

Lots of good setups out there that likely work equally well.

as far as the injectors, i can get the 80#ev6's for about the same as 60# ev6. my understanding is that going with the bigger ones won't hurt,theres more room to tune and not max out the injectors. 60 are good but 80's are better? does it hurt to go bigger?

80s are much more difficult to tune, so take that into consideration..

I dont know who you are buying your 60s or your 80s from, but i sell the 60s for considerably less and i charge less to tune them. Also, slashs car made 832rwhp through a t400 with 60s, so how much are you thinking you are going to make?

JLT = PITA! Go with the K & N and be done with it, it's practical, and practical wins every time.

+111111 on 60's being plenty, bob tuned my car 715rwhp when i had twin turbo's, then this year he tuned my car to 753rwhp with a kb2.8H, they are plenty. I have no personal experience with the 80's, but i have heard many complaints about them.

JLT CAI = PITA..

JLT RAI = easy install and works great..

+1 I have ran both CAI and RAI on two different kenne bell setups, RAI is sooo much easier to install plus i think it looks nicer anyway.:biggthump
