4.5 horsepower on a very windy day lol
Either you're an idiot, or you think you're some kind of comedian. The CAI itself is said to add 10-14hp and with the tune between 20-30hp, plus the TB adds more and if I buy the steeda or stack racing spacer that will add even more.

Ohh you got an 06... Maybe 10 then lol

I must be an idiot.. But I am full bolt on and trust me ... You won't see the hp they claim for almost any products

Feel free to buy what you want though but it could be spent much better

A throttle body will be of little benefit without forced induction and the spacer makes a nice paperweight. 15 to 20hp on the CAI and tune.
Search the forum and get some real world info on both.

The most satisfying mod after a CAI was my replacement 8x8 axle with 3.73 gears.

The tuner works differently on the 05+ mustangs, than on yours. So the minor gains may be true in your case. NOT ON OURS!!!!!!!!!!!

So basically what I'm trying to say is if you dont know what you're taking about its better not to say anything.:yes

yeah dont get the throttle boddy its not worth the money unless your going FI. spacer is a complete waste of money. just go with the jlt combo and spend the extra 300 on replacing your speakers and BOOM! killed two birds with one stone. lol sort of

+1 this guy always beats me to ****, the intake and tuner make your car alot better. throttle response wise it gives you a gain in hp that you notice, and you will find that you turn down your radio at times to listen to the great sound of the intake so you kill two birds with one stone that way, I like listening to music too but i never really felt the need to spend my money on an aftermarket stereo the stock one is pretty ****ing loud i would rather put the money towards performance ****.

I herd the bbk throttle body has many problems and the spacer is not at all worth the money but the intake is totally worth it

What do you guys think about buying a CAI and then saving my money to get a 2011 V6 when I can?

Get the CAI, tuner, and a new rear and you'll be set for the best (cheapest) NA setup you can get. And no... You will not see the advertised gains to the wheels. Maybe lowest advertised gains and at the crank.

Tuner really wakes up 5th gen sixers. To get the best out of it though, I would get a dual exhaust.

And do a little more research before calling people idiots. Just saying...

What do you mean by NA setup?
