'14 Explorer Sport greetings from Charlotte NC
« on: June 26, 2020, 11:34:52 PM »
Howdy!
Just picked up a 2014 Explorer Sport 3.5L Ecoboost. 78k miles, dinged an all 4 corners but mechanically sound. 5 star tune and 3 bar MAP good to go!
Will become a daily driver and occasional tow rig for sailboat or travel trailer.
Long time Ford nut. Raced a Deep Emerald Green '92 Mustang LX in NorCal years ago. 11.95 at 115mph on heads/cam/intake gears and mine shaft air (Sac raceway.) Former tech editor at Fordmuscle.com.
Driving a leased 2018 Fusion Titanium 2.0 ecoboost with JMS Boostmax. Urethane filled rear motor mount, strut brace. Put it in sport mode, 93 octane and it scoots!
Looking forward to getting the X in good shape and then upgrading.

Jim.
Race cars no longer with us:
'86 SVO
'92 LX 5.0

Hiding in pieces in garage: beat near to death '65 Mustang A code. 347 not quite finished, Tremec TKO, 4.11 9 inch, Cal tracs.

Welcome  to the forums.

How does the tune feel on the Ex-sport ?

Make sure you change out some fluids. Trans, PTU, Rear Dif.

It feels great! Great driveability and power. With the trans shift pressures bumped 10% I get a little wheel hop on the the 1-2 shift on dry road. Solid trans mounts will go in eventually. PTU and Trans done. Fresh tires installed and 1/2 of my brake kit has arrived.
