Re: Need advice

CAI and headers will allow it to breath easier, a tune is not necessary. It can give you better performance, though, and a CAI with headers can enhance its affects.

Re: Need advice

A tune is recommended anytime you change the airflow. Without proper tuning, your engine will probably run lean, and as Cat said, you won't get the benefit of your parts without a tune. Why spend the money for performance parts if you don't benefit? Ford (FRPP) included a tune program with just the cold air intake, on my GT 500.

Re: Need advice

I try to keep my Shelby all Ford or Shelby, just to keep it original. But there are many quality products available and BBK Performance is certainly one of them.

One thing I have learned over many years of modding cars is to save and tag your old parts, every last nut and bolt! Some day your Mustang Cobra will be worth a fortune, if completely stock.
