Awesome Kit That Adds a Ton of Performance
Adding a cold air intake onto your truck's 5.4L Triton V8 is practically always a good idea, and grabbing a a 5-Star Custom tune to take advantage of it will help you bring your 2004 to 2008 F150 5.4L up to the next level of performance. So why not get both in a money-saving package from Stage 3 Motorsports and get the ball rolling on your awesome F150 build. This powerful upgrade kit comes with an aFe Stage 2 Cold Air Intake and an SCT X4 handheld tuner that's preloaded with three powerful custom tunes of your choice from 5-Star Tuning. This performance package improves intake airflow over your truck's stock air box, paper filter, and inlet tubing while 5-Star's custom tuning adds a ton of power and takes full advantage of the increase in intake airflow from the aFe intake to maximize your truck's gains.
Efficient aFe Cold Air Intake for Better Airflow
aFe is one of the biggest names in truck intake systems, and their Stage 2 Series of complete cold air intakes are a huge improvement over your F150's stock air box, filter, and piping to give your truck tangible performance gains. aFe's Stage 2 Cold Air Intake kit is built around one of their Pro 5R oiled air filters that uses five layers of specially designed filtration media to bring in a larger volume of charge air than stock all while improving filtration efficiency. The filter is mounted in a complete heat shield assembly that seals to your truck's hood with a precut piece of weatherstripping to protect the filter from heat soak. The kit's inlet tubing maintains air volume, temperature, and velocity all the way to your F150's throttle body for great power gains and performance. aFe's F150 Stage 2 Cold Air Intake Kit comes with installation hardware and detailed instructions for a quick, easy install onto your truck.
Your Choice of Five Powerful 5-Star Custom Tunes
While the aFe intake is a nice touch, this kit's real power comes from the preloaded 5-Star Custom Tunes on the SCT handheld tuner included in this package. The stock PCM tuning of your 2004 to 2008 5.4L F150 is extremely generic and keeps your truck from making as much power as its easily capable. 5-Star's custom tunes change certain parameters of your truck's computer files, such as your fuel curves and ignition timings, to help your truck's big V8 motor produce much more horsepower and torque over your factory PCM tuning. What's more, you get your choice of three 5-Star custom tunes in this package that are based around both a specific application and fuel octane to meet your needs. 5-Star offers high-performance, towing, and fuel economy tunes for 93 octane, 91 octane, and 87 octane gasoline. Purchasing 5-Star's custom tuning even automatically qualifies you for our F150 Lifetime Tunes Program
where you can receive free retunes for life on tunable products purchased from Stage 3. Your five 5-Star tunes come with an SCT X4 handheld tuner that quickly and easily uploads your choice of tune through your truck's OBD-II port. The X4 can also download new tunes and firmware updates from your home PC using an included USB cable. The X4 is extremely easy to use allowing you to stack on all that extra power in only a few minutes.
The following custom tunes are available:
- 87 Octane Fuel Economy

How our F150 Custom Tuning Works Stage 3's 5-Star Custom Tuning Step-by-Step:
1. You place your order for 5-Star's Custom Tunes.
2. Stage 3 sends you a "blank"
tuner without custom tunes.
3. You hook the tuner into your truck and pull its ECU strategy code.
4. You fill out our online tune form
with the information from your truck and its strategy code.
5. If your truck has Ford's latest strategy updates, we'll forward your information over to 5-Star and get your tunes created.
6. Once 5-Star creates your tunes, you will be emailed a link to download them from our Google Drive.
7. Download 5-Star's tunes to your PC and then load them to your tuning device using SCT's Device Updater Software.
8. Now you can successfully load your 5-Star Custom Tune of choice into your F150.
After you order this system, you are sent a "blank" tuner without any custom tunes. Please be aware that SCT's devices and software are only compatible with Microsoft Windows computers, and will not work with Mac OS X, Linux, or other operating systems. Once the tunes are successfully loaded onto the tuner, you can then start to load your tunes into your truck. If we find that your F150 is behind on its latest TSB strategy updates, we may require you to have your TSB updates performed at your dealership of choice. Read our TSB Update blog post. If you need more information or assistance, check out our F150 Custom Tuning Page.
Tuning and your Powertrain Warranty: any aftermarket PCM/ECU tuning can absolutely result in Powertrain repairs not being covered under your manufacturer's warranty, making it effectively voided. Please take a look at Stage 3's Stance on Tuning and Warranties or call us directly at 623-434-5277.
