The new generation of Ford’s high-performance vehicle benefit from turbocharging technology which they call EcoBoosting. You find the EcoBoost engine in various forms in most their sporty creations, from the Fiesta to the new Mustang. It’s about time Ford Racing came up with a treatment for it.
And indeed they have. Ford Racing announced they are developing tailored ECU maps for all the EcoBoost engines Ford currently offers, including the 2.3 liter four-pot in the 2015 Mustang. They won’t be ready until the end of next year, but when they are, they will rock the powertrains with 90 lb.-ft. increase in torque.
Ford Racing engineers manage to do that by altering the parameters controlling the direct injection, variable cam timing and turbocharging in the engine’s main computer. This is, to all intents and purposes, an in-house tuning job, so you don’t have to worry about voiding your warranty or ruining your car’s EPA ratings. FR promises they will remain intact.
For Focus ST’s 2.0-liter EcoBoost engine and Fiesta ST’s 1.6-liter EcoBoost, Ford Racing currently offers the $595 ProCal ECU treatment. The owners of the Mustang EcoBoost, as mentioned, will have to wait a bit longer for a similar package.Ford Racing to Chip Tune the EcoBoost Engine,
