Don't go to crazy with the tuning. The 5.2L FPC does run higher conpression than the 5.0

Anything beyond the Ford Performance spanky blue re-branded Airaid filter is more hassle than its worth IMO. Man, I'm still nervous about driving this thing with the traction control off, its got more than enough for me in stock trim. lol

AP did you install the rear spoiler yourself or go to Ford? Curious what the install cost would be

Haha I finally had the ***** to bring her up to the redline. She is just past the break in so I had to feel what its about. Intoxicating to say the least. You get a crazy jolt of power around 6k.

Yah, you wanna shift at 6000, but amazing to hold on to it....the one time I wasn't paying attention and I'm pretty sure I hit the rev limiter. lol (Not for long though)

Yah, I installed the Track Pack spoiler myself, its super easy, toughest part is getting the old one off, theres two sided tape that runs the length. Take your time and its all good, basically remove the trunk liner, spin off the 10 mm ( I think ) nuts holding the Tech Pack spoiler on, and then either pry it off, or run fishing line under the spoiler. I had good luck, the car only had 500 km on it when I peeled it off, so I didn't bother with the fishing line, but I kind of broke the Tech Pack spoiler. You install two sided tape on the new spoiler, position it and drop it into place, snug up the nuts, theres four total, and you're done.

Not sure what the installation cost would be, but you could probably do it yourself in less than an hour, depends how comfortable you are, you do have to be careful to avoid scratching the paint, but its not impossible.
