Now the only part I'm still having an issue with is the CAI and tune. I cannot seem to find a CAI and tune from FRPP for the 2013 V6, I only see the mods for GT and up. I would prefer to go with FRPP, since from what I understand, the ford dealerships will still honor the warranty should something go wrong (this of course depends on the dealer as well). So I guess I'm SOL for getting these mods from FRPP?
If it's simply not going to be available from FRPP I will talk to some local dealers and get a feel for their point of view on mods and look at either a Steeda/SCT or a Airaid/BAMA combination.
Thanks in advance!
I was thinking about changing the gears as well, but since a majority of my driving is highway the 2.73 seems ideal for my situations since this is my DD.
It sounds like you definitely have a great mod list! That GT500 Quad Tip exhaust looks so good and a CAI & Tune is always the first modifications I recommend to anyone.
As of right now, FRPP doesn't offer much for the 2011+ V6 Mustangs. If you're really looking to net the largest gains, I'd probably go with a CAI and hand held tuner. The FRPP set up is nice because it's said that ford will still utilize a 3yr 36k mile warranty if you run this set up. However, the gains won't be as large as a completely custom tune that's written from the ground up.
If you do decide to go with a Bama custom tune, definitely let me know and I can give you some details! I would recommend giving your local dealerships a call and see what they think about aftermarket modifications. Some dealers understand that a custom tune really has no effects on the longevity of your Mustang and won't give you any trouble. It's always better to be honest with them, trying to hide it never really goes over well.
Also, Ford can't just void your warranty because you tuned the car. If you go in to for warranty work on a broken axle, they can't say "hey we're voiding your warranty because you tuned your car and we won't replace your axle". Those two things have nothing to do with each other and the tune obviously didn't cause damage to your axle. I use this example because I had a broken axle warrantied on my 2011 GT
with full bolts and a Bama custom tune, last week!
I hope this helps. Please let me know if you have any questions at all! The Bama team can also me reached at the contact information below in my signature.
