Rick has been doing so much travelling around the area to do tuning that we had to add a vehicle to the amazon fleet that gets better gas milage than a F350 does.Ford Escape Ecoboost fit the bill and turned out to be a fun vehicle after a bit of tweeking.
Rick got with our friends at JMS for a little ecoboost love. Nothing like a Pedal Max and Boost Max on any ecoboost. Easy way for the little 2.0 ecoboost to gain 5 lbs of boost, 26 rwhp and 20 ft-lbs of torque and that’s on just 87 octane! The Pedal Max will add amazing throttle response and really help with the turbo lag.
All I can say is WOW! I put a gauge on it and she’s running around 21lbs of boost. Before it was only 15.5 lbs. This is done with 93 octane. The data log shows 0 knock retard and it’s still really rich at around 10.7 to 10.9 a/f at wot. I’ll now do a little tuning on the fueling, spark and tranny on the dyno.NGauge in our 2.0 Ecoboost Escape. Installing a Boost Max and the NGauge will let me log it. Data log looks good, Now it’s time to put the Boost and Pedal Max on. Green filter with the MBRP inlet tube will be next then we will put it on the dyno. Since it’s the same motor as the Focus ST we will see the automatic powertrain loss vs the ST’s manual.
