1999 and newer Mustangs have electronic speedometers which makes updating or adding a tune the easiest way to make sure your speedometer reads the correct speed with your new gears.
This is particularly important for automatic vehicles as the computer uses vehicle speed when calculating shift points. Without getting the speedometer properly calibrated, your vehicle will not shift properly.
As a result, changing the gear ratio does require a new or updated tune.
