Tuned Wife's 2013 Escape
« on: April 01, 2017, 07:17:56 AM »
We received back the used MyCal from Livernois that I had reflashed for Kris's 2013 Escape with the 2.0. I showed her how to load the tune files in. Since we had to go get our daughter for the weekend she got to drive it. Her first impressions are she loved how there is very little throttle effort now and transmission shifts are way better - not lazy. I drove it this morning, yeah big time improvement over stock. Biggest thing I noticed is that now you can boost launch it without it falling on its face, and yes I agree, the transmission shifts are way better. Running the 93 V6 tune right now, but they sent a 93 Aggressive too. That will come later. Base runs at Beaver Spring were 15.48 and 15.88, couldn't boost launch at all. So hoping for low 15.10's to 15.00's

Hopefully mother nature will settle down and I hope to get some base line passes on the 93 V8 meth tunes, cause I was told, someone put some time on the 93 V10 meth tunes and should be stronger than the V8 version. Sunday is supposed to be dry and sunny in the low 60's. So fingers crossed.

I am just glad there is a tune now for the 2.0 for something besides the Focus!  Hopefully LME will also provide a tune for the 2.0 in the Edge, they really need it.

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!

Had the Escape at the track this past weekend.  Ran better than expected.  Gained 3 tenths of a second, went from 15.48 to 15.16.  That's amazing.  Also dam near beat a Cobb tuned Focus ST.  He passed me just past the 1000' mark, but I had a quicker ET than him.  I'm sure he was embaressed some.

There's a sweet silver Lincoln for sale by a member here. Like $11k.

Go pick that up and tune it / mod it

I got a quote from a fella at Dynotune in south miami says he can tune it for 650$ without the SCT Tuner, he would go directly into ECU, any adjustment id have to go back to him, what do you think ?

The only issue I have with that, is that whats happens if you need to go back to stock, you can't.  That would be my only issue with this.

Seems little high, but doable.   Seems like he is really turning up the boost.  If he is getting that amount of gains, I would call Livernois and get a 160 Tstat.  That thing will make a lot of heat.

For $650 you could have SCTx4, one step colder plugs, 3bar MAP and an airfilter which are the primary items to make these cars gain the most power.  That way you get a physical programmer in your hands that lets you return to stock whenever you want or get more tunes from many vendors.

Contact Unleashed and/or AJP on this forum.  Both provide outstanding customer service and create great performing tunes with SCT.  Plus they will both ROAD TUNE your car with the fuel you normally use by having you datalog and they adjust the tune just for your car.  If your car is a DD I think that sort of tuning is indispensable.  Dyno's are awesome tuning tools, but there is more to tuning than a fixed gear pull on a dyno, how the car does with WOT shifts is  key issue on these cars.
