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.

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.....
