This is my first 3v mod motor, I have owned over a dozen fox bodies in the past. Thanks for any info.
Most Airaid CAI's
don't require a tune. However, they do make a tune required CAI as well. If your Mustang is running well, without any light bucking or surging and you're not throwing any engine lean codes, I would bet that your car is tuned. However, definitely get it double checked at a Ford Dealership or with a Friend that has a SCT tuner.
If you plan on modding the car down the road at all, you mies well invest in a Bama SF3
hand held tuner anyways. Aside from benefiting from our Free Tunes for Life program, you'll be able to check DTC's and datalog your engines overall running condition. Personally, I definitely think it's worth knowing how healthy the tune setup is, before putting tons of miles on it. Even if a Ford dealer can confirm your Mustang is tuned, who's to say it's a quality tune. Keep this info in the back of your mind when making your decision.
Hope this helps some. Let me know if there's anything else I can do!
