Assuming by tune up you mean maintenance, fresh fluids, spark plugs, functioning cooling system.

Re: think this counts for performance

If you are referring to a tune. As in one that is done with hand held device with pre-loaded tunes made specifically for your motor.

Then you need to purchase a tuner and with the the 2005 4.7L you can get a SCT or a super chips. Depending on where you buy it from it will come with pre-loaded tunes on the device. Then you plug into your OBD and load the new tune into the vehicle. This alters numerous things depending on the tune you are looking for. If its purely performance I believe you want to go with the 93 Octane Performance Tune. I personally don't own one for this vehicle but I hope this info helps. Anyone please feel free to add or edit any information I gave here.
