cpc Welcome Tim! Nice looking machine. I like the Velocity Blue. I have a 2017 convertible and it's the most fun I've ever had with any car. And I've been driving since 1977.

I have about 1 more month 3/36, and then another year bumper to bumper with the CPO, and 7 years total powertrain. I'm thinking that it might be worth it to go with the FPP because of the warranty, but maybe not. Would appreciate your thoughts. Thanks
FPP is warranty friendly which is a big plus for sure. Do a search for ecostang2015. He's a member on these forums who recently installed the FPP and he's not real pleased with it.

The tune in the FFP commands no additional boost and unless you are running the car so hard it experiencs heat soak an aftermarket intercooler really isn't neccessary. There can be some small gains made though from adding a better/bigger intercooler... any time you can lower the IAT's you'll make more more. However the drop in IAT's between the stock intercooler and an aftermarket intercooler are not going to make much impact at stock boost levels. You may pick up a couple horsepower, but they come at very high price! So on stock boost the dollar to HP ratio for an aftermarket intercooler doesn't make a lot of sense.

You won't need to upgrade the intercooler with the Ford Performance pack tune. However, if you plan on upping the boost anytime in the future you may want to look into it.
