HP increase

I have a 2013 5.0 and was wondering what my RWHP would be around after o/r xpipe, CAI, axelbacks, and a tune? Im also going to replace the 2 pc drive shaft with aluminum

Once u tune there is no going back. Warranty is gone. Even if u flash back to stock ford can tell. This is the whole reason why my car is still without a tune.

I am in the same boat. Car is quick as it is. Want a supercharger. But want to get the suspension set up prior to more HP.

Good luck... not sure why you're trying to be deceitful about warranty, either mod or don't but don't try to make fomoco fix what you broke on their dime

No.....not like that. like voiding your warranty on the whole engine for putting on headers. Headers arent going to make your engine blowup! And as for the tune im going to get one from a really good tuner here in Dallas. They specialize in mustangs.

You could do that but there would be very little to gain from most any mod from these cars without a tune. Really it would just be you saying you have headers and it might be a little louder. Shorties will do nothing for you but look good and LT's, even if you do get high flow cats will still require a tune unless you don't mind having a cel code all the time. But this will burn out ANY cats you have on there and will dump lots of fuel all the time... It could be done though

Please don't say gear heads... they are worthless

As for mods and warranty... always build suspension first because warranty is not an issue and you can get massive gains from the right set up depending on your goals

cheap mods on the Coyote....

I do agree with going with suspension first. That's what I plan on. The car is already stupid fast stock.

Most people selling anything worth while for the coyote will sell just under "new" pricing, they act like they are doing you a favor by saving you $5 over buying new.

I hate it that most act like that. Everything I have ever sold off my car I sell for about half of what new is... Including shipping and PP fees too
