RCR reviews at 2015 Mustang Ecoboost 2.3
« on: June 08, 2020, 08:51:48 AM »
I am a huge RCR fan and like their humor.  Thought you guys may enjoy this. 

2013 Lincoln MKS ecoboost, 70,000 miles.  3 bar map 93 tune (E30 in the future) by both AJP Turbo and Ortiz Performance.  PPE catted down pipes, EPP dual CAI (not yet installed so K&N drop in), .026 gapped SP542, 170 degree thermostat, Dynomax axlebacks, and Power Stop Z23 pads and rotors.

at 3:13 I just about spit out my coffee... this is great..

on a serious note.. I have been tempted to look at an Ecoboost Mustang.. drop a toon on it.. you have a well handling, 400 crank hp, fun pony car..

I rented a 2018 for a couple of days.  The little car was fun.  I really like the 10 speed auto.  It is amazing.

Yep the Ecoboost.  I was impressed.  If a tune wakes them up like the SHO, they could be pretty quick.  I really liked the line lock feature...

Apparently the LMS tunes add 90rwhp and 105rwtq... that would be pretty peppy...

Low 12ís with tire and a tune...

I would ask Brad or Matt for a completely built from the ground up tune, before I put LMS junk in any vehicle including my riding lawnmower.

Ha! You are very concerned with your lawn mower getting a dorked tune recently ;-)

Ive been really interested in the new HPP ecoboost stangs with the handling package. Essentially dropped the RS motor in them. Better torque and powerband apparently.

Yea, but at the end of the day... that Coyote motor is nasty and ready to be put under pressure from the get...

Why anyone who is interested in performance, sound, drivability and fun would choose the Ecoboost Mustang over the Coyote is baffling to me.   The stock Coyote is excellent but they also respond very well to tuning, E85 and boost.
