CAI on a 2013

OK I was looking at a new CAI to replace my stock one. Not sure why but that doesn't matter for my question. Everyone I find needs a tune to make it work the way it is supposed to. I already have a factory CAI and there are no tunes available for my Shelby. So would I need a new tune to take advantage of the aftermarket CAI or not? Would it help my engine breath better or should I place my mod money in something else? Thanks Mike

Do a search on Google for the Jay Leno Boss 302 vid. Around the 5 minute mark (just after), the Ford engineer talks about aftermarket CAI's. You'll be pleasently suprised in how good your stock air system is. Realizing you have a Shelby, and the video is about the Boss, the statement remains the same.

Before going in your wallet, have a plan, buy mods to support / reach your goal.
.
Presuming the new CAI will be larger, ( stock is 105mm ), to get the max benefit, it should be re-tuned............
......Would I waste the $$$$$ on a tune for just a CAI.......NO !

Thanks I am not sure I just kept hearing about a bigger CAI for more power. When I went looking into it I just kept seeing Tune required. I looked to see what a Tune would do for me (not that I need it right now) and did not see anybody making one right now. That is what got me thinking would I need a Tune if I already had a CAI. As for my Mod money I am going to use it very wisely because I am restoring my 1968 Coupe and that is where my money will be flowing the next year or so. Thanks Again

If you do decide to get a tune please understand that it will void your factory warranty! If you do any mods on a Shelby or even a GT for that matter the way the motor and computer system are you will need to retune your car. Ford is doing this nowadays to check and see what people are doing to their cars when they're being brought in. I have a buddy who works at beach ford in Virginia and He told me specifically that if you retune any ford they do now have the right to waive your warranty.it gets aroundthe old "prove my mod was the culprit for xxx issue i brought it in for"
That's just what I was told...

You don't need a cai, the stock intake flows plenty. If you want a tad more power, get a pulley and tune from VMP Tuning...they rock!
