Guys I’m kinda stuck right now on where to go next with my ecoboost. Looking for more HP So far I have the Ford tune, mishimoto intercooler, 3” Mbrp exhaust with 3” catted downpipe
Well, you basically already sunk money into a single tune, stage 1 option that has little to no flexibility to be tweaked for additional aftermarket enhancements. Moving on from that will feel like you've lost that money. I appreciate that. However, I see lots of people on this forum who are happy with stage 1 level performance.I did feel a power difference but I really didn’t want to retune
I get it I’m going to need a re tune to make more power. I’m just tired of losing to hemi chargers smh and ss camaros. If I could be up there with GT HP I might be getting somewhereI think what Vicr is getting at, and what the rest of us are waiting for, is...
Aside from being your daily driver, what is it that you want to get out of the car? If you don't want to re-tune, then I would recommend putting the stock downpipe back on and just driving it. With the Ford tune you're not getting the additional power from it as it is.
Since your only goal is "more HP" you're going to have to re-tune to get it. For more power you're going to need to get into more serious bolt ons first (wastegate actuator comes to mind), then upgraded fuel, maybe a big turbo, but all of it will require professional tuning. If you're wanting to maintain the Ford tune to "keep warranty" then you're done now. If you have some other goal in mind, like a specific time in the 1/4 mile, or a specific top speed, or a particular lap time around a specific track, or autocross, or... Well, I hope you get the point. We need better information about your goals.
Awesome thats what I was looking for thanks man. I’ve been looking at these exact things for my EBSome other items to consider: New intake or at least drop in filter, 1 step colder spark plugs, and an upgraded DV/BOV.
After that I recommend the Cobb Tuner with at least the stage 3 tune. Then if you wanted you could get a custom tune and upgrade the wastegate actuator. That will pretty much max you out on horsepower with bolt-ons. I'm destroying charger and challenger hemi's on the streets...not even close. Losing some power now though getting into spring/summer temperatures.
