When putting on a cold air intake should I put on a new throttle body

I think most people use their stock throttle body. I have a Steeda CAI with stock TB and it works fine.

Like Bart said you can keep the stock TB. The stock TB flows enough cfms that until you are above IIRC 600HP it doesn't become a hindrance.

One of the main reasons people put on TBs is mostly for looks like with the Ford Racing 62mm Throttle Body.

Bama tunesa lot of cars and they usually get them spot on the first time around. They have free tunes for life which makes it a greatdeal in peoples eyes so that with every item you add onto your car that needs to get retuned they do it for free. Jon Lund is probably one of he besttuners in the country, though sometimes hard to get in touch with his tunes are one ofthe best and comehighly recommended by lots and lots of people. You can get tunes from him either through Lethal Performance, Lundracing.com, or IIRC Evolution Performance also uses him to write tunes.

Some of the better tuners in the Mustang community are Brenspeed, Bama, John Lund or Ken Bajones (Lund Racing), BBR is kind of hit or miss recently so it appears. It is always a good idea to datalog the tune once you get it put in your car and to keep in touch with the tunerto ensure it is working to its full potential

This is a great thread! We have seen gains of 25+ horsepower at the rear wheels on our dyno when doing a cold air intake with a tune. Huge bang for your buck! We just came out with some power packages for 2011+ 5.0's, check them out on our website. Hint: much of what you read in this thread is included in our power packs!
