A 3015 SCT tuner will do that with the 93 tune. 51 rwhp gains and 108 feet of torque increase.

SCT tuner is a nice addition. You can try custom tunes from 5Star, they work with the SCT tuner.

Just got a 2012 FX ecoboost. I have a 6 inch lift with 35 inch tires. Air aid Cold air intake. Was considering a Chip or programer, but every company claims they are the best. Any ideas?

I would love more performance, but don't want to put to much stress on my truck.

Questions About "TUNES"? Read This!

sticky is posted a top of forum.

Of course companies think they are the best. Do some research and then decide. Your money, your decision - we aint gonna be driving your truck so you need to be comfortable with your decision.

I wouldn't be comfortable with ANY programmer on an Ecoboost due to possible warranty issues. However, you DO have to do something to correct the speedo/odo for the big tires.

Then again, there might be a warranty issue with the CAI - Ford is cracking down on mods and it all depends on your dealer how close they are gonna look.

I know that with some programmers you can "un-marry" the programmer from your ECU and return it back to stock. When the dealer runs a diagnostic test on the car it will only show that the computer has been re-flashed. I use to do it with my Subaru for warranty work. They would ask about the ECU reset and I would just tell them that I cleared it with my AutoZone Code Reader because I didnt want o make the trip to the dealer. Worked every time. I dont know if there is any Programmers for the ECO out there that do the same but I sure am interested! Looking to add better throttle response, slightly more boost and increase my tow rating. I hear Super Chips has one of the better programmers out there..?

To start with, any dealer can not only tell that you have reprogrammed the ECM but when & what exactly the programming was.....
