New Ecoboost in the stable! (2016 F150)
« on: September 14, 2018, 10:51:47 AM »
Some of you know I had plans to get a new SHO after mine got totalled, but ended up getting a 2015 Fusion Titanium. I then bought a house, and realized I had a lot more practical use for a truck, than for another SHO. As such, as of this Wednesday, I now own a 2016 F150! So far it rides much better than I expected, based on having driven my 04 with a 5.4L a while ago, and my dads 2011 with the 3.5L Eco. I got the 3.5L Ecoboost (unfortunately not the "high output" version, but a tune can fix that later). 6 Speed trans, 3.55 gears, 4x4 with all the towing bells and whistles if needed.

More pics to come. Trying really hard not to tune it right off the bat. Also have plans to swap everything over to LED lights. Already ordered the media hub for the SYNC 3 system to support carplay, and updated to Sync 3 v. 3.0

Also, need to deal with the pesky recall for the seat belt pre-tensioner causing fire in the event of an accident.

Congrats, looks like a nice ride!
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!
