Our Favorite Performance Parts Combined with 5-Star Custom Tunes
The 2015 to 2017 F150 5.0L V8s are plenty capable off the showroom floor, but there's still plenty of power and performance just waiting to be unlocked with these trucks, and our Phase 1 Performance Package can help make it happen. Our Phase 1 Package combines an SCT X4 loaded down with your choice of 5-Star Tuning's F150 5.0L custom tunes and a highly efficient S&B Cold Air Intake to get your V8 truck a bunch of extra horsepower and torque. Along with gaining improved fuel economy and drivabillity, you save some cash and time over hunting down the individual components included in this powerful package.
High-Quality and Highly Efficient S&B Cold Air Intake Kit
S&B's Cold Air Intake manages to combine a high-quality and highly efficient intake design with low levels of noise so that your truck gets excellent performance gains without becoming a bear to drive. The intake kit is built around a high-flow conical air filter that features an oiled filtration media which allows it to be washed, re-oiled, and reused for the life of your truck. The filter is housed in a complete air box assembly that keeps the filter protected from heat soak while keeping noise minimal. The filter pours its charge air into a complete inlet tube assembly that was carefully sculpted to promote excellent levels of airflow all the way to your 5.0L F150's throttle body. Each S&B cold air intake comes with high-quality silicone boots, clamps, and hardware so you have everything you need for a simple installation.
Choose an SCT Livewire TS+ OR an X4 Handheld Tuner
This performance package comes standard with an SCT X4 Tuner, but it can be upgraded to the SCT Livewire TS+. The Livewire features a full-color touchscreen display that allows you to easily keep tabs on your F150's engine parameters, check DTC's, and efficiently navigate all of your available custom tunes. It is extremely easy to use and includes a windshield mount, OBD-II cable, and a USB cable to download custom tunes from your home PC.
NOTE: Both SCT tuners use the same custom tune files and will produce the same power gains.
