You can always just take the mods off if the car needs to be serviced/fixed... Put it back to stock and they will never know... What Ford doesnt know wont hurt em, or your waranty either.

Yeah. I mean like I'm going to use the extra hp for what? Car drives and sounds great with the KN filter added no need for cold air aftermarket stuff when car is already making 252 hp

Guess people just all "crazy" bout modding a car and go fast. I'm more into stock stuff like just here and there items. Not spending more than $1k on total aftermarket parts

I'd look into lower motor mount, shorter shift plate, FRPP tune and call it a day. Makes it a better driving car with a bit more power to boot.

Neither do the catback, motor mount, BOV... The short shift plate will make for a much better driving experience. Your call though, your car.

IAT = intake air temperature. Although to be honest it's not iat that the intercooler helps with but rather CAT or charge air temperature as the intercooler is after the turbocharger heats and compresses the air before it goes in into the engine.

IAT is before the Turbocharger I.e. at the ducting up to and just after the air box.
