Awesome Entry-Level Performance Package with Plenty of Power
Really opening up the power on your 2009 to 2010 F150's 5.4L Triton V8 requires some work, but now you can get two of the most effective upgrades on the market while saving a buck or two with this awesome Cold Air Intake and Custom Tuning Package
from Stage 3. This F150 power package comes with an efficient and high-quality AIRAID Cold Air Intake Kit
and an SCT X4 Handheld Tuner
that comes with five custom tunes
from the folks over at 5-Star Tuning. The intake improves airflow into your truck's big V8 motor while the 5-Star tuning adjusts specific settings in your truck's PCM to get you huge horsepower and torque gains. The custom tuning even takes full advantage of the AIRAID Intake for the one-two punch that your 5.4L F150 needs to perform at its absolute best.
High-Quality and Highly Efficient F150 AIRAID Cold Air Intake
AIRAID is one of the top dogs of cold air intake system design and manufacturing, and their CAI systems are go-to options for anyone looking for both quality and performance. AIRAID's F150 5.4L Cold Air Intake is an easy, drop-in replacement for your truck's stock intake system. AIRAID's kit comes standard with one of their SynthaFlow Oiled Air Filters that brings in much more charge air at cooler temperatures than your stock air box and paper filter while also providing improved air filtration over stock. The filter comes mounted in a full heat shield assembly and pours its air into a complete roto-molded inlet tube that maintains air velocity and volume all the way to your truck's throttle body. AIRAID's intake comes with everything you need for a quick and easy installation, including hardware and instructions.
Your Choice of up to Five 5-Star Custom Tunes with an X4 Handheld Tuner
The key ingredient to this package and the one that really brings home the bacon is the custom tuning from 5-Star. 5-Star's awesome PCM tuning adjusts key files in your F150's engine computer to alter its fuel trims, ignition timing, and other factors of your truck's engine functions to get you huge gains. You get your choice of up to five 5-Star custom tunes
in a variety of different styles and octane levels to meet the specific application that you have in mind for your F150. 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. The tunes are loaded onto your truck by an SCT X4 Handheld Tuner that's included in this package. The X4 is a fast, ergonomic, and powerful tuning device that's leaps and bounds better than SCT's older X-Cal 3 and SF3 tuners. The X4 comes with everything you need to upload your choice of 5-Star custom tunes to your F150 and also includes a ton of other features that make it a handy tool to keep around your garage.
The following custom tunes are available:
- 87 Octane Fuel Economy

How our F150 5.4L V8 Custom Tuning Works
So, after you order your tuner, you are sent a "blank"
tuner without any custom tunes. At roughly the same time, we'll send you an email with information regarding your truck that needs to be completely filled out and emailed back to us. However, you'll need to have your tuner before you can complete the form. If you don't receive a tune email within one business day, check your spam or junk mail folders. After your tuner arrives, you'll need to hook it into your truck and get your PCM Strategy Code
and put it in your tune email next to "Strategy". Email your completed tune email back to [email protected]
. After we receive your completed tune information, the tune itself will be built and sent to you via email as an attachment. Download the tunes .cef files to your computer and use your updated SCT software from SCT's website to upload the tunes to your tuner. Once the tunes are in the tuner, you can then tune your truck. If you need more information or assistance, check our our F150 5.4L V8 Tuning How-To
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.
