In my opinion extra horsepower, no matter how much/little, is always worth it. The cold air will get you a few more horses for now, and if you do more serious mods in the future you will see bigger gains, and you will be happy you got one. As for the type of cold air however, I would stray from K&N. They make a good product but are severely overpriced. I'm sure they want about $300 for a plastic tube and a filter:no If you are gonna buy a kit I would go with JLT's RAI or CAI, I think they are the best "bang for your buck". Do some research on Ford Mustang Cold Air Intake Kits, Mustang Intakes at AmericanMuscle.com - Free Shipping! they have a few different styles/prices to choose from as well as customer reviews and images.

I split the difference and got a K&N kit that retains the factory intake tube, but ditches the craptastic filter box for just an exposed conical.

Any gains you get are from replacing the filter. The factory intake tube is fine.

i've got a drop in K&N I'll sell you for $15 plus shipping. it's in good shape. honestly i've had a CAI but now IMO the only CAI I need is my procharger :) CAI's really don't do much more than a K&N is going to do.

Filter only if your car is stock and dont plan to supercharge the car. A stock car doesnt see enough change to really notice b/w the filter, and the whole thing.

I was gonna get a JLT CAI but decided the power gain would be insignificant for my pretty much stock car at the moment. I just took the air silencer off and put a K&N filter in there.

Do not even WASTE the money on a drop in.

Either get an underhood conical, or a fenderwell set up (preferred).

If you plan on going further then bolt on's like a set of cams, and maybe ported heads, spend the extra for a JLT. If not the stock tube is fine.
