    I am looking to install a intake to my 2012 mustang v6 3.7L. Any suggestions on which brand I should go with and why? Thanks

    It will come down to what you want. There are tuneless intakes which will not produce the same gains as a tune required intake.

    How and where do I get a tune? What would a tune even do? Is that the same as a chip? If not what do chips do??:paranoid: ( sorry for all the questions I am curious and new to all this)

    A lot of the intakes that require a tune will come with a tuner. For example if you pic up a intake and tuner from Americanmuscle.com; bama performance will collect your info and right the tune you want. For example if you wanted to run 87 vs 91 octane. Usually get tunes for life. So when you get a new mod they will rewrite your tune. They send them by email and you use the handheld unit to upload it to your car.
