I would get the Sct tuner and CAI combo from AM. I have an airaid CAI and love it. How much HP did I gain from the tune and CAI. I have no clue. I never dyno my car stock and never dyno it when tuned and CAI.

I have been told by the majority the tune and CAI has nice power HP and torque gains. I have no idea how much I gained but love how it looks and really love the sound when wot. The cai sounds amazing at wot and too me that was worth the cost of it. Remember bro. Building a car up is like baking a cake. The individual mod is equivalent to one ingredient. Sugar alone will not make a cake. A CAI intake only will not make the car perform better. Put a aggressive tune, CAI and cat back exhaust system and now more ingredients to getting that final cake. If you ever add headers and x pipe down the road, the CAI will work even better. The more cold air sucked into the engine and faster that air is pushed out, the more HP and torque your going to produce. Its a cake baby. Mix eggs, sugar, milk, flour , etc , you get the point.

The mods by itself won't work that awesome. When combined with other mods the power is unleased. You would be amazed how much hidden and locked HP and torque given by Ford in our 3.7 but dummied way down to be marketed and sold as an economic mpg sports car . Simple bolt on mods turn our 3.7's into a true performance vehicle .

Bro, you will love the bama tunes. The hybrid is really amazing and highly recommend it. Down the road order the MPT tune.

Lol you're not going to be even close to a 5.0 with just a tune. And Bama's hybrid tune doesn't even come close to MPT's race tune. Still a good tune though, ran the hybrid for about 4 months. But try a MPT tune, totally worth it and only 75$.

If the hybrid tune more aggressive than the 93 race tune from bama? My tuner is on its way but only has the 87,91,93 tunes.

Let me put it this way the 93 race makes it run harder u feel the shifts it's rough but fast but with the hybrid tune it runs very smooth like the car feels in sync now but it's faster than the race tune I couldn't be happier with it

Lol! No way you'd be close to a 5.0. With some bolt ons you could hang till 70-80 but than the v8 kicks in

I'm thinking that it was more figurative speaking than actual. I believe the tune made such a huge difference that he felt the car transformed into a much more performance machine. I completely understand where he is coming from because the tune really unlocks a lot of hidden power. Its like night and day. In order for the v6 to keep up with a stock automatic 5.0 one will need a few more bolt on mods but it can be done easily especially with the right tune.

I test drove an automatic 5.0 2013 and I can tell you first hand the factory tune is horrible compared to a bama race, hybrid or MPT race tune. The factory shift points are not good, the 390 pounds of torque is not utilized properly with the factory settings. My n/a modded 11 V6 felt faster than the automatic 5.0 and that was prior to me having headers, 3:73 gears and one piece aluminum driveshaft.

Yea I agree with you in that aspect but after 80 even a stock 5.0 would pull ahead pretty frantically

My car does feel fast. And I have raced my friends stock 5.0 at the 1/8th mile. He gets a 8.4-8.6 and I get 8.8. So he pulls ahead even at the 1/8th but he has t/i/e and spins bad on his stock tires. So yea 3.7 can "feel" faster in around town speed but after 80 5.0 trains away

That's awesome, glad to see you like it. I was thinking about getting this for my 5.0, when I get back from my deployment. Not sure what other 2 tunes to get... Guess ill figure it out. First time ever having to do it.

I have a question, when you get the Bama tunes for life, do you have to get something done to your car in order to get another tune after you first 3?

Example if I get a 87,91 and hybrid tune... Do I have to get something done to the car before I can call and get another tune, like a totally different tune... Say the ghost cam tune? Thanks...

You gey 3 tunes, when u get cat deletes like I did for my 5.0, they will send a revised aka updated tune to incorporate the new part. So everytime u add a new mod just call them up and have them send you new tunes.

That being said, I wouldnt HIGHLY recommend bama for tunes. Yes they run great and this and that, BUT they leave alot of ponies on the table and sometimes have lean spots and such. If you want the most out of your car go with another vendor, MPT, Lund Racing, AED, etc etc I can go on and on of other companies that ive tested and seen results of better yielding tunes. Choose wisely but like I said bama isnt a bad place to start bro.

Yeah so I've heard, just like the thought of free tunes, and I don't plan on tracking it too much yet... It's my daily driver, but would like to upgrade mods and if I get those other tunes ill have to pay for new tunes every time right? Any one else offer tunes for life or anything close... Once I get to the point where is not an everyday driver or I'm almost done modding (go ahead an laugh... I know) lol maybe than I get the more aggressive tunes?

I was told by MPT that they will revise/update your tune up to 6 months after purchasing it. Not sure about Lund or AED.

I would definitely recommend AM for its tunes while your building your car up with mods. I have been running the 91 hybrid tune and personally like that the best of the bama tunes. From a financial perspective, AM's free tunes for life is amazing and the best deal. AM has wonderful customer service and gives a honest good product as all there products are. With that said, are the tunes from AM the most powerful tunes out there. After getting my MPT tune, it takes the cars performance to a different feeling and level above the bama tunes. I love AM but MPT tunes are crazy aggressive and car pulls harder and even firmer shift points.

Charlie, is your 5.0 an automatic with the 3:15 gears? I only ask because the 2013 5.0 I tested was an auto with 3:15 gears and respectfully, highly disappointed in the cars off line acceleration and mid power. The factory tune has the same horrible throttle response as does the v6 stock tune. A highly noticeable delay in throttle response and weak shift points in the automatic.

My 5.0 pulls frantically from the start even against 10 and below GTs. Just ask my mom what happened on sunday guy was in front of me at a light (10 GT) and he left WOT I had enough space to go around him in the right lane and pass him in second hear he didn't even wanna look at me when I pulled up next to him at the next light

You have a boss.

much different than a stock 3.31 geared stick 5.0 or a automatic 3.15 geared auto 5.0. with its 6850 rpm redline and 412 horses. And the suspension doesn't hook as well.

I have driven a stock boss 302 and a stock 5.0 and the boss is much faster cause of the 7500 rpm redline, the fact it pulls all the way to that redline, and the shorter 3.73 gears.

A 3.15 geared auto convertible would have a hard time pulling a modded decently bolted on (headers,intake,tune,catless, 3.31 gears or higher) 3.7 till 80-100 when the v8 kicks in as after that speed it's about how much gas you can burn to overcome air resistance. A stock 3.31 geared 5.0 really pulls on the modded (t/i/e) 3.7 after 70. The thing is the 5.0 responds just as well as the 3.7 to mods so once you start modding the 5.0 it's game over.
