A cold air intake of your choice, headers, full exhaust, and tuner of your choice

So start with the cold air intake? Then continue on from there? I get most of my parts from American muscle and I've been reading they are costly but they have quality material.

Yeah I'm getting the Ford Racing Power Pack, the FR intake produces the best numbers and the tune is safer than other tunes cause it's made by ford for ford. And it doesn't shut off any sensors in your computer

For that package does it come with everything you need to convert the stock exhaust to a duel exhaust? Or do you have to buy that separately?

There are varying opinions on the frpp performance pack. It reuses your stock air intake pipe for the cai and the tuner is not very good if you want to make any other changes ever (examples: rims, tires, gear ratio)

You gain 15 HP for the FRPP and 17 lb-ft of torque, but the JLT CAI requires a tuner for the factory stock tuning, if you look At the BBK CAI it requires no tuning because BBK tuned it to factory settings already.

Re: NEW OWNER

Cold air intake and a tuner will make a huge change in your ride. Then depending on the miles on your car suspension.

Don't get the FRPP, not what you want. The tune isn't good. You get 17rwhp from it but a JLT and Bama tune give you 30rwhp not even including if ya get a full exhaust which will bout 10-15rwhp

Re: NEW OWNER

DO NOT GET THE FORD RACING POWER PACK! the exhaust is very quiet, and the intake is not as good as others. i got the pypes true dual exhaust, pype bomb axle back, bama tuner, and jlt cai and have gotten great results and can set off car alarms easily
