Roush CAI for my RS1

Hello

I just ordered the Roush Cold Air Intake for my brand new Roush RS1.

Once I get to 500 plus miles I will apply the Roush Tune to the car.

Doesn't the car come from Roush with the tune on it?

The RS1 does not. When the Roush CAI installed and with the Roush performance tune the car is then a RS2 level car.

I was surprised there was no performance upgrades on the Ecoboost. Just went to the Roush and checked out there offerings. The RS is the v6 car, RS1 is the Ecoboost, RS2 is the v8 and RS3 is the supercharged v8.

The RS, RS1 and RS2 in their base form are just appearance upgrades no suspension or power increasing mods. All the suspension and power upgrades are optional. Only the RS3 comes with power and suspension upgrades in base form.

Hello

I was at the right place, right time and with the correct people present.

The last day of the Myrtle Beach Mustang Week my wife and I drove up for the day. Visiting the Roush tent was my number #1 must do item for the day. The tent was manned by employees for Tindol Ford of Gastonia, NC and Roush employees from Michigan.

I go to the tent hoping to buy a shirt/hat and boom the next thing I know I am pulling my car into the covered work area getting the hood supports & 1/4 window panels installed. I then ask about the Roush CAI and performance tune. Up walks the Roush regional manager and we start talking about my car and he finds out that I just purchased the 2015 RS1 onn 9 July, 2016 and informs me that I am eligible to receive the Roush CAI with performance tune and 3 year warranty. It seems this was a promo being pushed to dealers to get the leftover 2015's off the lot and I stumbled into the deal. I just need to pay the labor cost to have a Ford dealer install the CAI & tune.

So a long way around to say that there are additional performance that can be added to the cars above and beyond the exterior dress-up that make the car stand out in public.

I did return the American Muscle purchased Roush CAI.

Roush Tune?

I just picked up a 2015 RS1 last week. Got a steal of a deal since 2017's were hitting the lot. I am about to order my Roush CAI, but what is the Roush tune and where do I get/purchase one?

Picked mine up on 9 July. I ran into the Roush NE performance rep at Mustang Week in Myrtle Beach and he is sending me the Roush CAI, performance tune and the 3 year warranty at no cost to me. I have to pay for installation at a Ford dealer but I will install the CAI myself. Roush was giving the dealers this as an incentive to get the leftover 2015's moving. This special was suppose to end at the end of July but maybe you can squeeze the deal out of your dealer. Send me a PM and I will send you the information and you can call Roush directly if your dealer says NO.

What number is your car? Please post a picture.

Mine 15 0237

Thanks! I really like yours too. The black on black looks great! I did call my dealership, of course they played stupid about any type of free Roush cold air intake. They are kind of shady, I drove over 200 miles to go to that exact dealership just to get the sweet deal, so I don't expect much. I'm still curious about the Roush tune you talked about. Can you tell me more about that? Thanks for your help!

Also did you take your Active exhaust baffles out? I took mine out and wow it made a big difference in the exhaust. Best part is it only took five minutes. 👍

Hello

I sent you a PM with Roush Performance contact information.

Plus you can go to the Roush Performance page and buy the Roush tune. Or you can get a tune from Bama on the American Muscle page.
