Our Phase 1 Package includes an aFe cold air intake kit and your choice of either an SCT X4 handheld tuner or Livewire monitor with powerful custom tunes from 5-Star Tuning. The aFe Intake Kit makes airflow into your 6.2L V8 more efficient, all while 5-Star's tuning turns up your Super Duty's horsepower and torque, which totally transforms how your F250 or F350 drives and performs. Best of all, you get all these components right here, in one place, at a lower price than purchasing each separately.

Highly Efficient aFe Intake that Improves Airflow into your Engine
Getting as much power and torque as possible from your 2011 to 2016 F250 or F350 6.2L Super Duty truck requires an overhaul of its pretty restrictive intake system, and aFe has a great way to do it with their Stage 2 Magnum Force Cold Air Intake kit. aFe's cold air intake kit for the 6.2L Super Duty replaces your truck's air box and inlet tubing with much more efficient hardware that improves airflow into your truck's V8 for nice performance gains. aFe's intake comes with everything you need to get it installed on your truck, and easily bolts on right in place of your Super Duty's stock air box without any permanent modifications. The aFe system includes a high-flow air filter that can be reused for life, which can save you some cash in the long run over disposable paper filters. The intake kit comes with mandrel-bent aluminum intake tube that reduces restrictions and improves air velocity over stock. The system comes with all the hardware you need to get it installed, as well as installation instructions.

How our F250 & F350 6.2L Custom Tuning Works
After you order your tuner, you are sent a "blank"
tuner without any custom tunes. We'll then send you an email 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. After your tuner arrives, you'll need to hook it into your truck and get your ECU Strategy Code
and put it in your tune email next to "Strategy". 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. 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 in the tuner, you can then tune 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
