2017 Ecoboost - 1” drop, C&L CAI, 92 octane performance Unleashed Tune, NGK plugs

I just purchased a 2017 Mustang EB this past Sunday. It was very spontaneous as we were driving down the road, and to the left, this gorgeous grabber blue Mustang parked so pretty. I wanted to get away from my 2004 Hummer H2 as I was rarely driving it, and it was taking up space. So, when they offered me $10k for trade-in, I went for it. The Mustang is your base model, which is fine by me as I already knew that I would be upgrading the stereo, inside aesthetics, and starting off with a cold air intake and tune.

Today, I purchased the Roush cold air intake, NGK 6510 spark plugs, and the Unleashed REV-X Custom tuner, all from Unleashed Tuning. Consistent with everyone else, Torrie is fantastic with stellar customer service.

I'm 38 and feel like a kid. I pretty much bought the car for my 15-year-old son, who absolutely loves it. However, not sure I'll be able to give it up in a year :)

I also have a 77 Chevrolet Corvette, so I didn't need another beastly v8. I'm excited to start this journey.

Take care, everyone.

I know, right. He’s reconfirmed almost everyday so far, lol. “So, uh, dad, you’re going to give this to me next year, right?” 😆

Congrats! Welcome. That's also an aftermarket spoiler and decklid. And if my eyes serve me correctly, I feel like the car has maybe a one inch drop lowering springs.
Correct on all accounts. I might even take it down an additional inch getting it just above flush. Thoughts?

I have one inch drop myself. I love it like it is. I simply just thought that stock showed too much wheel well. I didn't want to go any further because then I would have probably had to replace the shocks/struts and a few other tidbits to make the geometry work to keep the ride with some needed cushioning. But plenty of people do. If you don't mind the harshness of a 'slammed' ride, then by all means....

Wow, just looked at your ride and the build. Amazing! I’m so in the honeymoon stages, I think I’m having a little mid-life crisis with this one, 😆. My 77 corvette doesn’t count as it’s sentimental and was my father’s.
I just ordered the Roush cold air intake, BDX Unleashed REV-X Custom Tuner, and NGK 6510 spark plugs all from Unlimited Tuning. I’m going to start there and then slowly build up from there. This is a lot of fun 🤩

Thanks for making me feel welcome; that's awesome and not always the case these days.
I have unsettling thoughts on tuning these engines. I've done a lot of research the past couple of days before deciding to buy the unleaded tuner and Roush CAI from Torrie @ Unleashed. His customer service is on-point, very knowledgeable, etc. However, I'm still uneasy about adding a tune in fear of something terrible happening. I'm sure everyone has felt that way before doing it. Do you (or others) have any experience on this topic? I get it, don't make any changes unless you're willing to replace the motor :)

Welcome to the forum. Don't beat on it too much and you should be fine with the tune. I tuned mine a couple months after I bought my 2017, and no issues. My tune was from Tune+.

Indeed. And I added the tune today. Definitely has woken the pony up. Having fun 😎
