first mods I've ever done

Finally got mods for the mustang.

Today I installed my steeda ultimate induction pack. The intake was alot harder to put together than what I've been reading lol. The intake alone shows a minor difference. I burn a little more rubber during turns.
Waiting til tomorrow for the addition of the tune. Im putting my bbk tuned length shorty headers on then I'll add my tune.
Then finally the maestro idatalink.

Im so excited I thought I'd share it with you guys!!!


Steeda tune, Steeda ultimate induction cold air intake, BBK tuned length shorty headers, Idatalink maestro.

That's a tune only intake. You could cause a lot of damage running it without a tune. I wouldn't drive it without the tune.

This is from the steeda website for the V6 Ultimate Induction Pack:

"This Cold Air Intake is so effective at improving airflow into the five-liter engine that a performance tune is not just recommended, it is required for maximum performance! In an effort to maximize performance and provide our customers with only the very best products we have partnered with the leader in automotive tuning - SCT Performance and their X3 tuning device.

Combined with the required custom tunes in the included SCT X3 Flash programming device we have achieved dramatic power increases of up to 20hp and 30ft/lbs of torque!"



It's not surprising they didn't mention that as you bought the tuner with the CAI...... They would be safe assuming that you would tune the car when putting the CAI on.

Wow yeah I just read it myself. Even though I have a 3.7 I will be installing the tune in the parking lot. It seemed to run just fun. A little better actually. But then again I had only driven down the street and back.

3.7 or 5.0-Doesn't matter. Steeda CAI's require a tune. Go download the tune!

Just get off the phone with rob. He confirmed I need to get the tune in there before I throw a code. So soon as I pick the car up I'll be tuning.

I bet it runs much better now that it's tuned.
