I'm not really criticizing you, it's definitely a neat way to go about it (and the FP intake does look really good), but you're one of the very few to attempt this. Most of what I read about tuners refusing to do it or it not working right were from posts I read on this very long thread from years back, not direct experience or anything like that. So clearly that was something that's been resolved for a while now, which is great. IMO the bigger throttle body with its tapered adapter is a big part of why throttle response feels nicer with this kit. Just feels like the car likes it more. So you'll probably notice something similar.As I stated, I already have my tune file from them. So, yes, they do, and it didn't seem that they had any issue with it. I've been with Lund for a while now and they tuned my 2014 GT CobraJet setup with the tricky FTPP big monoblade TB and my car ran absolutely flawlessly. A little high on idle, (about 100 RPM higher) but they said that would be the case with the monoblade and was really not an issue considering the HUGE performance gains I got.
Odd choice to you perhaps, but my choice. I did this simply because I love the stock look of this airbox and the "Ford Performance" on the front. 87mm TB is just a bonus to me. If they had this airbox that would fit on my stock TB, I'd get it. ... But I also do alright for myself so I can splurge for this entire kit to get the parts I want out of it.
I did have the Roush CAI (Lund tuned, with the MAF insert removed) before this. It hauls, just got tired looking at it. It's pretty huge in the engine bay. This FRPP CAI has a much better appearance IMO.
Curious how many tuners you actually spoke with directly. Because I spoke with both PBD and Lund up front with my intentions (to get more than just one opinion) with this kit and both had absolutely no issue with tuning it.
Again, I have the Lund tune in hand. I just need to install the kit today and flash the tune.
Will let you know how it hauls once I get some datalogging done!
