Question Is it really dangerous to install Steeda cai without tune?

I have an 07 mustang Gt , i recently purchased a steeda cai and was wondering if it is really dangerous to apply cai without the tune. Im planning to buy the flash tuner in a month but can i add the cai now without harming my engine?

Is it a tune required CAI? If it is then don't run it with out a tune it's tune required for a reason!

It's a tune-required CAI, don't install it w/o a tune unless you want to harm your engine.

I had a JLT CAI on my 2006 V6 (which req's a tune), tuned it back to stock with the JLT on, and it would idle horribly then die.

If its the same size diameter as your stock intake you should be fine. But if its bigger or smaller dont because your engine will be throwing a lean or rich code and cause a terrible sputter and idle and it will stall constantly. Dont install without proper tune if it is tune reauired.

The steeda CAI has a 90mm MAF housing and a tune is required. Do not run it without a tune.
