Sorry if this has been asked before, but I wasn't able to find it in the search. My truck was sold to me with the Roush Stage 1 Performance Pac (tune/CAI) already installed. Is the tune included along with the CAI the same as the Ford Performance tune?

Definitely two different tunes. The Ford Performance tune can be removed with tye Pro Cal 4. The roush tune in there for life.

Thanks for the info on that. Not worried about ever needing it removed. I kind of thought they were distinct tunes, but couldn’t find definitive info.

Not sure but the additional advertised HP for the Roush might be the CAI vs the Ford's K/N drop in? I wanted to use my points and keep it under the household radar so I went with Ford :) If indeed you cannot remove the Roush then the Ford kit definitely has an advantage.

No, Ford gives you a tune without the CAI and, perhaps because of this, adds an F&N high-flowing air filter in the bargain. This may actually make a slight difference in performance, or it may be that Ford just wanted to give customers the impression that they were getting something physical that goes in the vehicle for their money, not just the flashed tune and a tool. Some members have raised questions about the long-term safety of the F&N filter and are running their trucks with the Ford Performance tune but stock air filter or an alternative aftermarket (other than K&N) filter. I have left the F&N in so far but will probably go back to stock the next time I have the truck serviced. Judging from members' comments on the various threads that deal with tuning issues, most seem pleased with their Rousch or Ford Performance tunes. I sure am happy with mine!

No worries. Thanks for the heads up. So far I've not had any problems. My dealer had installed the Roush Pac on the truck prior to the sale. They had added about 5k worth of accessories to it, but it got used a bit as a courtesy vehicle (manager's wife, supposedly), so it had about 3600 miles on it when I bought it "new". So, they had knocked 5k back off of the price. So essentially all the extras were free. Warranty still started as new so no biggie in my book.

That sounds like you got a good deal. Enjoy driving it, I know I am.
