Tuning an '05 Mustang GT

Any ideas on tuning an '05 Mustang GT? I just installed an AEM Brute Force Air Intake and tuned the car with a Diablo Predator. Now I read from Diablo how "sensitive" the GT can be and I might need an additional "custom tune" for an additional $250. The car is running fine at the moment but all of a sudden I wonder if I need to be conserned over future changes...like upgrading suspension, upgrading brakes, new throttle body, new shifter etc. anyone with any experience tuning the 05-06 Mustang GT's please throw in 2 cents...or three even
Thanks, Mark

Mark, I don't want you to take this wrong, but you need about 30 or 40 years experience.

'05 Mustang GT

I have 44 years experience...just not in hot rodding. I understand that this can be complicated but I'm not sure exactly what your answer means...should I give up now? Are there no answers to my questions...or should I just wait another 30 yearts to get the car right?

You might want to remove the insert in the air snorkel if it has one. Ford quit installing them sometime in April '05. A dyno tune for 91 octane would pep it up too, not to mention mods like bigger throttle body, headers, x-pipes, and mufflers. Removing the snorkel insert may, and putting a bigger throttle body will, require a custom tune. Good luck.
