    I’m getting a tune soon for the little engine that could. On other ecoboost I’ve upgraded to a 3 bar map, is that applicable on this truck and if do what is the part #. Thoughts on high flow cats and a larger inner cooler? With just a cai it’s been 13.80. Really want to be in the 12’s.

    Rcsb 2.7 4wd

    An intercooler will help.

    They say a tune really wakes the Ecoboost motors up.

    If you get a larger intercooler I would recommend upgrading the charge pipes.

    Not sure I even need more. Truck is pretty stupid stock. I did hear a resonator delete and cat back that you can actually hear the turbo whistle. Tempted honestly.

    Dick, lol. They sound almost like a diesel at idle when piped like that. Still a V6 though.

    I vote downpipes/high flow cats for the sound alone. delete the resonator and keep the rest factory

    Are there any good expert dyno tuners for Eco boost trucks in the Houston area?

    Not sure I’d try posting in the local section here. @Sinister04L I think he maybe from around that area he may know.

    There are a ton of shops in the area but I'm not sure who specifically tunes for Ecoboost trucks.

    not sure we can remain friends....

    I've downloaded the SCT box tune so far. It is a big improvement especially in S mode. I have 5 star tunes in my email. Plan on downloading tomorrow and see what it feels like. With just the SCT tune it'll kill the tires in 2nd on the shift, in 2wd. Being a 4x4 it has the larger 265 series tires.

    the only mods i have are a drop in filter and hooker blackheart duals.
    I'm only going to get a tune when the warranty is up because i think stage 3 has a powertrain warranty included.
    here's a short video with the exhaust demo. I've since removed the duals (somebody hit me from the rear) so its a bit deeper and louder now.



    I really couldn't be happier. i think its the best engine all around for the F150. imo its designed a lot better than the 3.5.

    Got the tuner from stage 3. Didn't buy the warranty, may or may not regret. I figure if something goes awry I'll buy a used 3.5 and drop it in. I like the sound of your truck, reminds me of a GN.

    I spend enough money, and get in that much trouble with my wife. I’ve on a spending hold.
