I too heard he is going up on Nov 1st on his tunes. Everything else is going up he has to make some money too.
As for the intake you are okay, for exhaust you don't even need to go 4", the restriction in the factory exhause isn't the size of the plumbing, it is the factory muffler. It necks down a 3.5" exhaust to 2.5" and then further restricts it by throwing it through an offset. I know the popular thing to do is replace the entire system and I understand I am going against the grain, but I have been saying this for years, some listen some don't!! Let me ask you a question, if you place a 5/8" garden hose in a 6" sewer pipe does it flow anymore water?
Exactly my point!!
Just replace the factory muffler with something like the Walker BTM from Napa for $45, straight shot 3.5", so no back pressure. My EGT's dropped 100-150 degrees between the BTM and Ford AIS intake. EGT's are controlled with proper air flow and good tuning, with my set up I have never had to back out of the go pedal due to high EGT's!! A full 4" system isn't needed unless you are planning on building big HP with a larger turbo, injectors etc...
You then want to support the aut trans with a Valvebody, I prefer the FTVB, but JW and BTS also make good units. Only after these mods are done should you be adding more ponies. Of course gauges are a must as well.
For tunes DP or TW will provide you with what you need, You can see by my sig who I chose. If you have any ? Just PM me!!
