It will, I know because it drove me to get a tune. People always downplay Bama, but after sending in data logs it was smooth as butter.

Got Lund now though.

Guilty! Just two little 3Vs. And agreed with Dave. 2Vs sound amazing.

Why? Because they sound great, make good torque, and run forever.

For me it was a split between VMP and Lund because they offer the nGauge, after messaging them for two days with a bunch of hypotheticals and questions, John N at Lund won me over with his excellent customer service and was to quick to reply.

Can't really go wrong with either of them, check out AED too.

A tune will help but shorty headers help even more. Low end torque is lacking a bit in Cyclones, my Mac shorties made a noticeable improvement, especially with a new V2 tune from BAMA.

I'm guessing the new Ford GT is not a good car because it is a measly V6 .
The Nissan GT-R is also not any good because it is a V6.

Mud, I usually agree with a lot you say, but this is kind of out of your character.

Decided to go ahead and order the MCA and turbo the 3.7 to have something unique again. The turbo was a lot of fun, when I wasn't blowing up. I think I know what took out the last engine, but sold the turbo and decided I was done trying.

Now wish I would have gone with the GT/CS after losing 3 engines. As far as cost - the MCA was quite a bit less expensive. But, I would have ended up spending the same thing to supercharge or turbo the 5.0 anyway so the cost differential would not have been made up with the turbo on the 3.7. I would have spent the extra for the 5.0, and still spent several thousands on the forced induction (just wouldn't have spent the extra on replacing the engine!)

I like my 3.7, car still looks good. But now I miss the extra power.

Apparently a turbo 3.7 isn't unique on this forum and is a dime a dozen.

The GT is an Awesome car!.. The GTR is over priced crap!.. Sat in one at the Detroit Auto Show!.. Thought the interior would have been better for a $120,000 car!.. Was not nearly as nice as the new Mustang, Camaro, or Corvette!..

I bought the 3.7 because it runs on regular which is 50 cents a gallon less, gets way better gas mileage, and is way easier to service as there is room
under the hood to get to everything easily, it cost 10 grand less, insurance is way less and it has more power than the 96 LT1 corvette I bought new for twice the coin of the mustang.
On top of that I have several big horse old musclecars with 455's and 454's in them
that are plenty fast if I feel the need for more speed. The 3.7 is a no-brainer
plain and simple. It also handles better because it isn't front heavy like the v-8 cars. You 5.0 guys sure are trying hard to convince yourselves you made the right decision, but I'm not buying any of it.

Exactly sir. You hit the nail on the head. One can't afford the V8 model or one can afford the V8 model but wasn't willing to pay the added cost of the V8.

I loved the 2011 5.0 but didn't love it enough to spend the added 7,500 dollars for it. Some can't afford it, some can but not willing to spend the added cost.
