pejohnson Posted September 21, 2014 Report Share Posted September 21, 2014 I have a 13 SHO PP with 13k miles and finally pulled the trigger on installing a tune. Here is a list of the items installed or modified to complement the LMS tune: Regapped the stock Motorcraft SP-534 CYFS-12Y-T3 Iridium gapped at 0.030. It took me about an hour to do the plugs as I really took my time as this was the first time really getting my hands on the engine other than cleaning it. The plugs looked fantastic. Not a lot of carbon build up, so I was happy. Most of them were gapped from the factory between 0.032 and 0.033. Installed a new 3bar CX-2231-AA5Z-9F479-B. This is a super easy switch out from the 2bar. The sensor is on the top of the manifold and is held in with one screw. Installed a new LMS 160 degree Hi-Perforamance Low Temp Thermostat. I let the engine cool down for at least 6-8 hours. I say this because I lost a lot coolant, probably 1 to 2 quarts. I put a small cup and used some tin foil to create a funnel to catch any fluids unfortunately the container was not nearly big enough. After it was said and done I decided to make a trip to the dealership and buy a gallon of Ford approved coolant. Installed a used Airaid 451-260 SynthaMax Dry Filter Intake System I bought off a forum member. I received a taller rubber blade to help seal better however have not had success in closing the hood properly. So the short blade is on for now. A special thanks goes out to Anthony at LMS for walking me through everything. Also special thanks to bpd1151, crash712us and all the forum members who have provided feedback and have posted so much information on this forum. Without all of you, I would not have had the confidence to do this. Livernois Motorsports and bpd1151 2 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
