    LOL, well thanks. Well, the cause must have been lsp. But after Ford abandoned us here, no one capable of tearing
    down an ecoboost engine seems to exist here, so i have no idea why. I was not dataloggin either so no logs.

    So i sold the car to a import shop who swapped a new ecoboost motor he ordered from the states into the car.

    By no means am i saying its a bad motor, i just think alot of people dont find it really worth it to mod the car with the bar for failure risk so low.

    I will respectfully disagree. Most of the other groups I'm in for other types of vehicles are not what a majority of this community is. The ONLY page/forum etc that I would recommend is one facebook called LET'S BREAK SOME ECOBOOSTS. Tightly ran, intelligent folks in there that have actually accomplished things with the platform. And a few that are continuing to push the boundaries of EB stangs.

    No argument from me here, good to see some community (regardless of communication medium) pushing this platform to the limit.

    Yeah, don't waste your time, folks... apparently you have to have blown an engine to be granted membership, and I'm sorry, that's just plain stupid. I suppose you could also lie, but then you're the stupid one.

    I haven't blown an engine and was honest about it and still got accepted. Dropped out of other groups since it's mostly rehashing of common questions and I guess I was hurting feelings of too many 5.0-bro types trying to flex in an EB group for some reason.

    Did you even try to get in? The group is strictly performance oriented and those questions are intended to weed out non-sense questions and discussions.

    If you want to talk about oil, carbon fiber mirror caps and what color brake covers you should pick, then it’s the wrong group.

    If you’re trying to mod your car for performance and want to push it further, it’s the best group.

    I'm full bolt on makin 330 whp and 376 lbg-ft at the wheels (dynoject). What else is there to talk about? CP-e made all my parts and did a custom tune. But I am pretty much maxed out unless I decide to build the engine or pay out the ass for a bigger turbo that will only let me make like 20 more whp safely and then still have to build the engine.

    Im happy with my car - not happy with being stuck at current power levels.

    How was the tuning process with CP-E? I am considering this route.

    Grteat I went through 14 revisions last november - and our final two we did this july. I highly recommend Mitch at CT-e because his number one thing he told me is "A car that is in the shop makes 0 hp"

    So therefore even though you probably can squeeze more power from my tune - you can't do it safely so therefore I am capped.

    i 100 percent agree within 10 years the aftermarket is going to be dying out. Encryption based ecus, more turbo tech, the list can go on and on. But more the most part besides the enthusiast crowd and maybe someone wanting to throw in a tune. The days of major major mods are over. Now the v8 guys as long as the engines don’t get too nuts won’t change much but all the turbo motors sheeeeet

    I just got the ford performance in my 17 ecoboost, he’s right. Factory tune- one and done.

    couldn’t be happier, cars are just quicker now a days with very little needed. If it blows I will toss a built 2.0 in it none the less

    I am on the same page about a built 2.0 if it goes boom.

    What I can't decide on yet it's whether I will build it myself gradually over time or pay a tuner to do it.

    My car came with calipers painted red, looks good. I use a canned tune from Diablosport, T3 Platinum, and it tuned my Eco into a rocket with the 93 octane canned tune,
