First of all, replace the Motorcraft alternator with one from PA Performance. Even the rebuilt Motorcrafts are mediocre. This has been an issue with these S197's since they came out in '05.

Not sure how you could do a search and not come up with any hits for this chronic issue on the 05's and early 06's. But glad you asked and got your answer.

No tune required CAI's typically add about 3-5 RWHP... if you're lucky... on these S197's. A good CAI & tune will yield about 15-25 RWHP depending on a few other parameters.
