2014 v6 mustang next mod

Good Morning Everyone,
I purchased 2014 v6 mustang last Oct. and have done the following mods: JLT CAI, flowmaster force II exhausts, eibach anti-roll sway bar kits, and next ordered Chrome modern billet shift knob. First question: anybody give me a clue for a next power upgrade? Second question: how much HP/torque do you guys think I'm at?

Boy it seems like a lot of these threads lately.

A tune is the next logical step to get the most out of those mods. Bama is the most popular.

A tune will be your 1st power upgrade.

Keep in mind though that a tune may void a warranty if you have one. Im not saying it will,but if you have an issue they will sure try to fight it.

OP

That's a good question and the next mod on my list would be a tuner; The BAMA Tuned SF4/X4 is a great tool that I've had on my previous cars as well as my current Mustang and it'll really wake your 3.7 up!

For each and every Bama Tune, we ask you 19 questions about your specific Mustang, including your unique set up, such as your JLT CAI and what your intended use will be like (I.E How you drive!) , in an easy to use web form. This information allows us to write an entirely custom tune just for your specific vehicle to ensure we deliver the most power and performance possible.

Our Bama Custom Tunes are developed in-house on our Dynojet 224xLC chassis Dyno. We've put in Hours of research and development through street, track and dyno testing/datalogging which left us with fully refined custom tunes. The Bama Performance team has exclusive access to our inventory of parts.

We also are part of Fords Technology Transfer Program & Work very closely with Ford to insure that all of our tunes are perfect! Let me know if you have any other questions about this in the meantime or feel free to shoot our CS team at call at 1-866-727-1266 and we'll be here to help.

-Alex

Thanks for advice. What does concern me is that if I use a tuner, it'll void the warranty? How sure are the tuners as to not cause any harm to anything? Aside from a tuner, what else is another option as far as a bolt-on mod?

Heres the problem with dealers and warranties...it seems like they always find a reason to fight you on it. For instance, they could say youre CAI caused a problem...did it? Probably not,but now you have to fight them to pay for the repair. This could drag out for days or longer. It could be a real hassle. The problem with a tuner is that even returning it to stock it will leave a "footprint" in your computer. If warranty is an issue with you dont do it.

As far as other stuff to do, gears. Put some 3.73's is you MT or 4.10's if your auto. This wont be totally cheap though. With parts and install youll be in the 700-800.00 range.

A tune is the only thing u can really do. U can add a bunch of other bolt on but without a tune they're mostly useless!

it ain't so much as the tune causing harm. Fords (and most mfrs) policy is if it's tuned most of the power train wtty is void. However differant dealers will have differant opinions on that, but, I doubt any of the "mod friendly" dealers will put in writing that you will still have a wtty after a non-Ford tune. I wouldn't tune mine but admit to paranoia. Harm from a tune is rare but (example) if your transmission fails Ford MAY say the added strain of the tune blah, blah. Legally Ford has to prove it but they can deny wtty till you win in court.
