From Mustang to Jeep SRT8

Hey Guys,

Well today traded my 05 Roush Mustang (STG 2) to a Jeep SRT8! I am pretty pumped about this car and the power. Well like any car junkie i am already looking at performace upgrades but i have a question. For Mustangs anytime you add a CAI you need to have the car tuned, but i don't see this with the Jeep? Can i just buy an Arrington CAI and call it a day or is there somethings that i should know before i purchase it? Any imput would be greatly appreciated!

Go for the CAI, no tune is required but you'll find it's recommended. Take a look in the performance forums here and you'll see the common mods and summaries of what works best. Most common:
- first order of business, get a catch can
- CAI (BWoody, Arrington, Mopar, etc.)
- tuner (Trinity or InTune)
- Jet 180 t-stat
- custom tune, you'll find a couple members here who'll work with you on it. There are canned tunes on the Trinity or inTune, but custom tunes get the most out of your rig. Big improvement.

For these light mods you'll notice the biggest improvement in the CAI and custom tune.

General summary with exhausts are they don't offer performance gains, they're mostly for sound with these light mods.

You will definitely want the tune if you add the CAI.

lol, catch can is the first AND last order of business.

BT is having a huge sale this Friday, up to 40% off. Check them out, quick!

Looks like you bought an 06, should do a full SeaFoam treatment too for cleansing.... There's a sticky thread in the performance section on what FULL means.... Good luck.

Welcome to the crew! Congrats on the new ride, I bet you love the new Jeep over the 3v Mustang! So how many times did your cam phasers go bad on the Roush?

What the guys have said above is on point, few basics to start, you don't NEED a custom tune, but it really does make a world of a difference. Like buying a new vehicle all over again.

I wonder if they have Outback Steakhouses in the Outback?

You should go ahead and hook up with a tuner because once you start modding, it's hard to stop on these rigs!!
