do I need a tune for a new catback system?

So I have purchased a new catback system for my 08 GT from Roush. I'm pretty new to the stangs world. And heard I will need a tune otherwise engine light will come on. Is that true?

No you don't need one. Unless it said it needed one but usually you do need one.

Come on, man, use your brain. How in the world is a CAT Back going to affect your engine tune.

I traded my 07 charger Daytona in on my mustang, went to turkey rod in Daytona beach and its been downhill from there lol. Intake, tuner, shifter, cams, gears, full exhaust..... It's pretty bad lol. Think I'm gonna do CMDPs, a dynotune and clean up the outside. Probably wheels and smoked lights. And that will be it until its paid off. For the most part....... Lol
