the reason your going to need a tune to fix the air/fuel is b/c you've now MOVED every single piece of sensoring that the ECU does of the incoming air, to a different location.

granted yes its a factory location, but the SVT ECU is setup to properly meter this air.

your stock ECU isn't. so your going to need a tune to calibrate your ECU to the sensors new location.

03FOCUZ, This is the Intake manifold, not the tranny.

Nope, you may (or may not) get more power but it has nothing to do with how many RPM's the engine will turn.... you'll need a tune to change that.

Are there any before and after dyno's??? or is all this seat of the pants gains??

I just had it done a Week and A half Ago. Funds for a tune and Dyno and bit of a ways off. What I am gonna say though, Is that before I had this in I couldn't brake the wheels free. Now, after having this done, I seem to do it by accident. So i can say that there is definitely some kind of Improvement.

Also, I notice a longer pull throughout the RPM range. Before, I would notice a point where there was nothing else there towards the top end and now I kind see it there......even more there with a proper tune.






Update: I am Getting about 200 miles a tank UNTUNED(70% City Driving). I will post number again after some Tuning or Dyno numbers are available.
