2011-2012 5.0 Mods; list them

I’d like to know the appearance and performance mods that folks have on their 2011-2012 5.0.

When listing your mods, let us know if you have a tuner (which one) and what tune/s you are running and where the tunes are coming from. And list any pros and cons for any of the mods.

Currently I have only done appearance mods: tint, quarter panel louvers, stripes, 3D500 spoiler, shift knob, wheels, caliper covers. I will post pics once all mods have been put on.

The rest of my 2012 5.0 is stock with Brembo brake package.

Actually the Tuner is Bama..The SCT is just a hand held device. It isn't the one putting the tune in and making the tune.

Mine was loaded threw a laptop then a SCT and then in my car. But SCT or the laptop didn't make the tune. My tuner Central Texas Performance made the tune.

I understand . But I was clearing up for others as well. Some one says I have a SCT tune. It really isn't true if the tunes in it is Bama/BBR/Lethal/Livernois.

A lot of NOOB's here and every where see oh he has a SCT tune. Not realize that no you actually have a BAMA tune. You just used the SCT to put it in there.

True. I have learned a lot about tuning from a few friends that actually tune. As well has a crap load about modular engines since I came form LSX's. Also knowing the right people has allowed me to learn a lot about the 5.0. WHat really works and what don't.

93 Bama race tune. When I first got the tunes the car ran like crap but I will say that their customer service was great and after a few data logs they got everything running great.
Magnaflow O/R X
Roush AB
JLT CAI
Hood Struts
Roush Grill
CS front valence
Eibach Prokit
JM panhard bar
15% tint

My only regret is the JLT CAI only because with the auto u have to drill a third hole into it which I didn't realize when I bought it but that was my fault I didn't research it enough.

Ya I talked to one them today. we still trying to work every thing out. We see. He said he can still do the build real cheap for me. But I have to make sure I can afford to pay that still.

Plus never know what will happen. Worse case and I mean worse case is I sell the car. I have a couple offers already. For the car and the 6-7k worth of parts for it. And If I do have to sell it once house would finally sell I would buy a new toy. Either a GT500 or a Z06. Both would be used of course.

Pics? I see in picture you gave a 5.0. SO now you have a Boss?

what are the first mods. I should do to a 2011 5.0.

Seen in this thread you are talking about the Boss intake.


What gears do you have in your car? Also what are you shifting at? Seeing you have a Bama tune something tells me you are not taking advantage of the Boss intake.

You need to get a tune that takes red line to 7800. Shift at 7700ish. Shifting at 5500 you are no where in the real power of even a stock 5.0

---------- Post added at 11:38 AM ---------- Previous post was at 11:37 AM ----------

Evolution or Lethal tune. or a dyno tune

Send me more details on the place where I buy one. I was a little nervous getting that close to the red but I will try it. Also how can other tunes be that much different? Is it that technical.

---------- Post added at 11:37 PM ---------- Previous post was at 11:21 PM ----------

Also can I use the sct x3 that bama sent me and use the fifteenth tune file or will I have to buy a different unit all together

It is that technical. A half degree of timing or .2 on Air:Fuel ratio in the wrong place can make the difference of 10whp.


Take a car to redline is where they shine. Even with blowers. The Modular motors love to be revved. ANd the 5.0 is no different. The higher you rev the more it likes it.

You can order a tune from some one else. They can emial you the tune and you down load it into the SCT. If you are unsure how to do this or don't feel comfortable about doing it. All have to do is send your SCT to them.

CAll evolution performance or Lethal Performance and talk to them. Also there is Woodbine Motorsports. They have the fastest bolt on car that is still DD and not a stripped race car.

I talked to bama they said the red line was pushed to 7800 as well I did a run with the race tune and shifted at 7000 all the way to 5 th gear. Holy **** it shifted smother in the higher revs I got up to 130mph really quick. They said to go with the 3.73 gears or the 4.10 gears to make up the loss in low end torque. I thought a had the 3.73 gears already but I am not sure it could be the 3.55 how can I tell I cant find the paperwork on the car at the sale only the payment book lol. I don't think a want the 4.10 gears and mess up my mileage in 6th gear I do more touring than racing but I still like the acceleration.

I wonder if Ford is going to put out a TSB instructing their techs on how to read this thread and void all our warranties?

Take it out for a ride and see if it does go to 7800rpms. Also 3.90's are the perfect gear. I have 4.10's but I am going back to a 3.90 down the road.

at 80mph with the 4.10s I am at roughly 2700rpms in 6th gear.


Also with the headers and everything else you don't even see the loss down low. And it is at most 10wtq. You will not notice that.
