    2016 3.5 f150 proposed mods

    I’m new to the forum. Have 01 supercharged Z06 650/640 rwhp/rwtq
    I always wondered why would anyone want to mod a truck?
    Well I want to.
    My thoughts are this
    1 Cold air intake
    2. Cat back better flow exhaust
    3. Programmer that won’t throw codes.

    Would really appreciate your input , found out long ago to ask from those who know rather than do it on my own😂

    Save your money on the intake and exhaust and spend it on a good tuner like from Brew City, 5 Star, Unleash, Gearhead, etc. Very little to no gain with the intake or exhaust.

    Totally agree. After having spent thousands on mods. I wish I would have just stuck with a 93 octane tune and meth injection.

    I have Full Race downpipe, CAI, FMIC and GT turbos.

    Hindsight, I wish I would have just tuned it with a Stage II meth kit.

    Down-pipes didn't do much for the truck^^^

    My past experience with turbo engines was downpipe/tune was the biggest gains.

    See BOLD and RED font above

    CAI and Catback exhaust is worthless unless you have larger turbo's.
