    Looks like there are 8 available from this retailer on eBay

    I checked with Airaid and they said the proper cold air intake was part #450-321 (non carbon fiber) for the Boss with the 84.5 mm TB installed. They did not have a suggestion for a coupler though. I think both are 4" outside diameter but there is apparently a bend right where a coupler would fit the two together.

    What have others used for a coupler?

    No bend. I used this one from eBay on my 2012 and it worked flawlessly. I bought part number 453-174 which has the PJ carbon fiber tube and the blue no-oil filter.

    You would ASSume so but it's not the case.I got caught up in the same BS when I started looking two months ago.I finally called a few of them and the response was"If we do not show it in stock we won't be able to sell it."
    I was taken a little off guard by that response,but that is the deal.
    They are just trying to sucker us in.
    My response was to order from Jegs.Good people and upfront about availability.
    Ordered 2/27,supposed to be to me by 4/18.
    Good Luck!

    I've been following the thread over at SVT for some time.

    I'm still having a hard time believing OP gained 39 hp going from stock with silver key to CAI + TB + red key. That just sounds too good to be true.

    If other people duplicate the same result, I'll definitely be getting this CAI and TB plus the Kooks shorty headers. That should be a 50+ hp gain without voiding warranty, no emissions/inspection issues, and get to keep all the Track Key goodies like the launch control, engine braking, etc. But again, sounds too good to be true.

    I too have been following this thread.
    - Where is the "magazine review?"
    - Where are others who have performed this mod?
    Anyone??

    Glad to see I'm not alone. People jumped on me on the other forum just for questioning the results.

    It's debatable whether even a CAI with a bigger MAF housing (requiring a tune) makes more than about 10 hp max. Yet OP saw a gain of 17 hp from a no tune CAI (with a sleeve installed to shrink the MAF housing back to the stock size) with the silver key and a gain of 23 hp with the red key? The gain from the TB seems a little more believable though it's still at the high end of what I'd expect.

    The magazine article has already been posted over a month ago.

    I have the TB and CF CAI and my butt dyno tells it it's worth exactly 11.2 HP. ;)

    The airaid was worth some power for sure. Now I am willing to bet that he drives on the silver key a lot and the ecu dumbed down the tune a little. And the red key had little use and was still running full timing.

    Here you go. It's the June 2014 issue of 5.0 Mustang and Super Fords starting on page 114.

    http://www.mustangandfords.com/how-to/engine/1406-how-to-install-the-airaid-mxp-intake-system/

    And something else to read:

    Hey thanks NFSBOSS! This is great!

    but is there an article anywhere that includes the accufab? (did I miss something?)

    It's not mentioned in the article. There's another thread with similar info in it. Try doing a BMO search.

    The mag article was ONLY for the CAI. I added the TB later on my own.

    OK, so what were the results?
    I seem to remember dyno sheets with no numbers.
    Now that the story is out, how 'bout those dyno numbers??
