Not as far as I heard...it's hard to tune with and the gains aren't really as good

Can you hear the whine more? No tune required right?

I would absolutely not do any cai without a tune...it has been proven to cause our cars to go lean which is really dangerous...even cais like the k&n and others that say they don't require the tune just google search it they have been tested

If you want to hear the whine of the sc get a smaller pulley you will absolutely hear the whine...that will also require a tune though

If you're changing the diameter of the intake tube then yes you need a tune.. Might as well do it all at once.. Intake tune and pulley.

Are you referring to the cai for the 5.0 we are talking about the shelby...regardless I would tune any cai that I put on because the cai is not really doing anything for u without a tune

For sure thanks i have another question ive had tunes on all my cars before on a 2006 gt a 2009 f150 and a couple of v6 mustang but i just got a 2013 gt and im not sure if i want to tune it just because i have had problem with dealers and
Smog tests. Is there anyway that maybe a ford dealer will tune a car if i can get performance parts through them that require tunes

You can order the procal tuner through ford and as long as they install it will not void warranty (supposedly anyway) in regards to the smog test your tune shouldn't affect that unless you were to remove your cats or something the procal will not give you as much performance wise and in my opinion is a waste of money

I have bama, but them Jon Lund, Vmp, they are all good. I chose bama because I was doing my mods slow and liked that they have the "free tunes for life" program...also bama gives a Warrenty to cover engine failures on the # 8 cylinder so it makes since plus bama is a little more conservative than the others so maybe a tad bit safer for daily drive...I plan to eventually get a Vmp tune for my gt500
