Nice gains, well done!
2007 Ford Edge SEL, Powerstop F/R Brake Kit, TXT LED 6000K Lo & Hi Beams, W16W LED Reverse Bulbs, 3BSpec 2.5w Map Lights, 5W Cree rear dome lights, 5W Cree cargo light, DTBL LED Taillights

If tuned:  Take note of the strategy code as you return to stock (including 3 bar MAP to 2 bar MAP) -> take car in & get it serviced -> check strategy code when you get car back -> have tuner update your tune if the strategy code has changed -> reload tune -> ENJOY!

That's a huge gain and I love that max torque @1650

Nice work!

Further evidence that the little turbos are choked/restricted both early and late in the engine's power band, both on the intake and exhaust side. Very nice gains.

What are the random troughs that appear though? KR events?

15' F150 Lariat Sport, all the options, 3.5L Eco. (fiancée ride.)

Stock intake will be tested by another client in the next dyno session in around 1-2 weeks, AirRaid vs MDesign dyno is also in a review thread by a member on the boards.

Seriously thinking about getting this intake. Has the testing been done vs. stock or Airaid yet? You're only 3 hours away from me. Might take a road trip.

We have tested it against AirRaid, here are two threads that detail the testing:
