Is a tune required for a BBK CAI, throttle body, UDPs and SLP exhaust?
 
slp loudmouth exhaust, bbk throttle body, underdrive pulley, and a cold air intake that doesnt require a tune?

I dont think so but with the throttle body it would help out your mpg and get all the hp out of the set up

Beware of CAI comapnies that say they dont need a tune. Which one are you thinking of.

a tune is not 100% needed but if your spending that much on mods, you may as well get the tune. it will give you more HP/TQ so thats a plus. without the tune your not really taking advantage of those mods. fork over a little more cheese and get the tune, you'll be happy you did.

that tb is pointless its just going to cause you more issues then good.

The only reason why these cars need a TB is if you are pushing 12psi plus on a twin screw or roots blower.

All the centrifugal guys and turbo guys are making well into the 700 ranges with stock TB's

Not entirely true.... I'm easily using the extra air with my setup.

The combination of the throttle body and CAI might push you into the 'tune needed' area. I would think you might be running a little lean.

Gears are good, and comp stage 3 cams also.Which CAI did you get?

i was thinking about the k&n aircharger since supposedly it doesnt require a tune. i thought i would be running lean on fuel thats why i asked but if a throttle body isnt really necessary then i will just save that money.

With your setup, don't worry about a throttle body.

Ford is using the stock 55mm TB on the FR500GT...so crap, sure is good enough. That was one of my first planned mods till I looked up the FR parts list and found that tidbit.
