I have a 2015 Ford Taurus AWD Limited with the 3.5L naturally aspirated. I have the magna flow catback exhaust on it and was wondering if I'd see any benefit from adding a CAI. I am not looking to see any horsepower gain, but mainly looking for a nicer sound. Do you think a CAI combined with the catback would be a good combo or is the cold air intake completely unnecessary. I have seen a few posts about CAI's, but not too much about one in combination with a catback. Thanks for the help, and I'm glad to be here. -Nick

Your engine already has a CAI that can flow more air than the stock engine can ever use. An aftermarket CAI will make more noise, but power output will not change much if at all.

I had a CAI in my 2010 and it honestly added very little, if any, difference in the sound of the car. Which i upsetting because i had a 2004 nissan altima that i put a CAI in and it made a world of difference in the sound. Since you already have a catback, i would strongly suggest getting your engine tuned. Your a/f ratio is going to be all kinds of thrown off.

With that said, i do have one for my 2015 that i originally bought for a steal and was planning on selling to double my money on it. Not too many people in my area drive these cars though, so if i cant sell it i will be putting it on

With that said lol, if anyone wants to buy a CAI for their 2013+ non sho, i have one for sale
