Agreed with most of it coming from the tune.

Get a better exhaust setup and maybe you'll see 25+

What type of exhaust do you recommend? It already has dual exhaust just can't find the name of the exhaust

Just go shorty off road or high flow midpipe and some lt's and you'll have a nice setup. Or just get a midpipe. The stock manifolds arent very restrictive on the 4.6's. the midpipes are though.

^ This is a realistic estimate. From a CAI and Custom Tune, we see on average around 20-25 RWHP gains. They pair up together really well and will show huge improvements in a few different departments! Power, torque, acceleration, drive ability, gas mileage, throttle response, shift points (if its AUTO) and so much more.

I hope this helps! Please let me know if you have any questions or need some assistance in the near future. Our Bama Performance tuning specialists are here in the building Monday-Friday from 9AM-5:30PM EST and Saturday 9AM-5:30PM EST. You can hit them up directly at 888.226.9764 and they'll get you squared away!

I've had run Bama tunes on my '04 V6 for almost 2 years now and no issues. Bama tunes are a bit more conservative, but just as with going to a dyno tune, if there is something bad wrong with your car to start with they yea there can be issues. Bama tunes are no more worse for your car than to take it to a dyno tune. Like i said, just more conservative

I use the 87/89 street/performance tune usually, the difference between the three for me is not really that big of a difference. And you get slightly better mpg on the 93 race tune but IMO not enough for me to justify using strictly 93. The biggest difference you'll feel is from stock to any of those three. And if you have an auto transmission you'll feel even more of a difference due to the changes in shift points.
