Performance chips

I wanna upgrade my new 2013 v6 mustang and I hear performance chips and intakes are the way to go, I liked the idea of the cheap g force chip but it seems to good to be true, and as far as intakes I like the k&n but wanted other opinions on what is the best buy and what everyone else likes! Please enlighten me!!

Chips are for cookies bro, lol Chips are so old school 90's. you want a performance tuner. Sct bama performance tuner from American muscle . That's where it's at. Forget the chips and leave them for your sandwich.

ask the service department at your dealer about whether or not it will void the warranty. Generally, yes, it will but I've heard of some dealers not caring about tuners

Well the good thing about hand held tuners is you can put the car back to stock before you take it in for service.

I thought even with putting back to stock settings the dealer could still tell if the ecu had been accessed?

^ this is correct. There are some tuners now on the market that claim to leave no trace of tuning. It's one of those situations where u play at ur own risk. As stater before, have a conversation with ur dealer. Guys like BlackonBlack have and they have allowed them to tune with no issues. If they say no and u do it anyway, u could have issues if it breaks. Just do ur homework.

This will not help with the newer PCM's as used in the Mustang. If a manufacturer claims theirs clears The PCM completely and leaves no trace, I'd ask for this in writing, and if they will take care of any warranty claim issues should a dealer state they will not honor the warranty due to the tune. I'm betting I can provide this answer.

I'm all for tuners, just be aware that some dealerships are tough with how Ford writes the rules with warranty issues and mods.
