Default Intake & Tune on brand new car?

Your thoughts? Should I break the car in a little more? I have 700 miles on the clock and want to allow time for break in, but I'd love my tune and intake soon. Should I wait till a certain amount of miles till i put the intake and tune on her? THanks

I did, I think I had 1,000 miles on my car before adding the tune/intake, then gears at 6-8k, supercharger at 12k.

Could you still feel your car going through the break in period after install of the cai and tune?

1000 miles wouldn't hurt anything as far as I'm concerned but, remember the tune/CAI voids the engine warranty so, I would drive it a little longer to make sure everything is ok with the motor....not that I heard of many stock engine failures but, there has been some. If it's a bad apple it will blow in the first few thousand miles...IMO.

JayBeStangs94,

Lots of members of this forum will have their own opinions about what's consider a proper break in. Of course, there's nothing wrong with attempting to break in your engine thoroughly before modding it either.

However, Ford does claim the engine is broken in right from the factory. To back that up, we installed a Bama/CAI package on a ton of our brand new (new at the time) Project Cars. This included our 2011 v6, 2011 GT, 2012 GT, 2013 GT, and our most recent 2014 GT! None of these Mustangs had any issues from modding them with less than 30 total miles. Plus, it's safe to say our company cars see a little more abuse than the average street Mustang!

Hope this helps put things into prospective for you. Again, there's nothing wrong with going through a break in sequence, but it's not required.

Shane

I don't see any issue doing the CAI and tune. If you're worried about break in still, just continue to baby it a little more until you're happy with the break in. Nothing about a CAI and tune says you HAVE to redline it every chance you get... it's just hard to resist sometimes.

Break in? I did that by taking the car to the drag strip the first weekend I had it home!

I had my cobra manifold, steeda cai, and cat deletes installed with about 600 miles on the car. No worries.

Go for the tune and intake now. I had my 2008 Bullitt and my 2012 GT at the track with only about 500 miles to see what I can do in them. The only reason I waited to tune my cars was so I could learn how to drive them first. Once I felt comfortable launching and shifting I ordered a tune. I had 120k miles on the Bullitt when I traded it for the 2012 and I had zero problems. I have just over 40k on the 2012 GT and zero problems. I have about 15 passes at the drag strip , I think, with the 2012 so far. My time slips are upstairs and I am too lazy to go count them.
