The chances of a recall at this point are pretty slim, it's almost a 10 year old car. There have been some reports of TPS-related issues on the early build cars. There is a "round end" and a...

Pretty common issue on the Coyote engine from what I've read at other forums. It seems to stabilize after a few oil changes and more miles.

Return to stock with the old tuner, then load the new tune from your new tuner. That way you don't lose your stock tune.

All of the tune-required CAI are within a few HP of each other. Best I remember the Airrade RACE had the best gains, with the others close behind it.

You should really upgrade the shocks/struts while you are doing the springs too. Ride will be much better, lowering will also wear the stock units early.

Get a can of MAF cleaner and clean it too. DO NOT use anything else but MAF cleaner on it. CRC makes a TB cleaner and a MAF cleaner, they should be available at your local parts store.

Honestly those aren't bad numbers. I don't think you'd pick up much (if anything) from a TB - that's likely not holding you back any. The big question is how does it feel when you drive it?

I carry my S&W Shield 9mm in a Foxx IWB, around 4-5 o'clock. It can poke a bit on longer rides, but I'm a bigger guy. No issues with the seatbelt though.

The newer cars are Shaker/Shaker Pro. It's the same setup as the Shaker 500/Shaker 1000 if I'm not mistaken (the Pro/1000 adds the trunk subs). If you find a good deal on the CAR you want, then go...
