Next upgrade?

Okay so I have a 2012 v6 performance package and I can't decide on my next performance mod. Since it's the performance package it has upgraded suspension and comes with 3.31 gears. I added roush cold air intake, bbk shortys and catted xpipe , magnaflow catback and eibach proline lowering springs. I was thinking maybe a tune? But maybe more performance mods and then tune? Any suggestions or input? Thanks

Steeda tune & tuner ... you won't be disappointed!

Our tunes are very safe, powerful & reliable - a great trio.

Here are some reviews concerning our tunes ... very happy customers:

Quote:
REALLY BROUGHT THE CAR ALIVE
Got the tunes and let me tell you they are worth the wait really brought the car alive I love it.
BLAKE
I was a bit unsure as to how this tuner would really do. I am a believer now! After installing a 93 octane race tune, twin 62mm throttle body, and a "Steeda" CAI....all i can say now is my car is a beast now. I highly recommend this tuner. easy to use, with simple on screen prompts, and more hp and torge, make it more than worth it!
LOVE IT!
Tuned by Steeda! This thing is an animal! Great tune. Idles very sedately, revs fall through the range freely (better than stock). Love it!
KUDOS TO STEEDA
I continue to be impressed by Steeda.

My requests for tune revisions are completed in 24 hours and more importantly, the tunes themselves are the gold standard.

I picked Steeda for it's reputation and I now know that reputation is well deserved.

I hope you take it for the complement it is when I tell you the throttle response and modulation is BMW-like. I have tried other tunes and without fail come back to Steeda because the throttle is perfect.
THE CAR JUST BEGS TO BE DRIVEN HARD
Awesome tune!!
Way better than Lund Tune .
The car just begs to be driven hard.
Fuel Mileage also improved.
Now time for the Headers and an Intake.

I will let others weigh in but let me know if I can help assist with a tuner & tune, you will be very happy with the purchase.

Best Regards,

TJ

Tune. But research and go with whoever you feel most comfortable with. The main 3 people choose between is MPT, Bama, and Steeda. All 3 have perks of their own.

Tune! This comes down to preference. I'm running a Bama tune with sctx4 tuner and have never had any issues with the quality, or customer service. Noticed a great performance gain and enrolled in the free tunes for life! So everytime I add a mod to my stang, I contact Bama and they will send me an updated tune via email.

Absolutely tune! One of the first upgrades i did was a Steeda tune followed by 3:55 gears and completely changed the car's character. So much more fun to drive. I went with Steeda tune and coukd not be happier. They provide tunes for life and with their close relationship with Ford I felt they provide a safe and powerful tune.

I'm not sure if the trend of suggestions here was too subtle or not but I would also encourage you toward a tune.

Don't u mean a hot air intake? Since most of them pull hotter air than the factory box?

That's with a tune, of course.

That's due to the tune of course. No dyno has proven that you gain squat by having cold air intakes added on. (That I have seen)

Can someone prove me wrong here?

Keep in mind that is on a 2-stroke motor and not a mustang. It's different car to car
