    Build thread: F150 Ecoboost Project by CARiD + Video



    F150 remains one of the best selling trucks of America for decades, and we all know well why. It also became one of the most popular truck bases for modifications and customizing. There are hundreds of aftermarket upgrades available for this truck out of the box, so you can easily personalize it in any way you like it, whether it's a functional working truck, or a tough off-road monster. With all the choice of F150 parts and accessories at CARiD it would be wrong not to build our own ULTIMATE FORD F150, so we picked up this beautiful 2016 F150 Lariat with 3.5L Ecoboost engine in a Blue Flame Metallic color!

    Our project build will show you how to create the truck of your dream right in your garage!

    The first video of our Project F150 is coming soon!

    Our plans:
    - Performance air intake
    - Performance exhaust system
    - Custom Grille
    - Custom headlights
    - Tonneau cover
    - Lift kit
    - Large tires
    - Custom wrap
    - Off-road lights and LED light bars
    AND MANY MORE!

    You can find this air intake on this page: https://www.carid.com/aem/cold-air-intake-system.html
    Just plug in the Year/Make/Model of your truck! This AEM intake is really one of the most capable for the Ecoboost engines. We are very satisfied with how it works on our truck. I can also calculate the quote for you, just give me your zip code and email address (you can send it in PM)!

    i've been thinking about doing an intake, want to see those dyno numbers as well.

    dyno numbers after each mod would be a huge selling factor....

    Thanks everyone for participation! Today we are glad to present you our next video about the installation of BORLA ATAK™ performance exhaust system on our project truck.
    While everyone loves the efficiency and the boost of the turbocharger, the sound that is produced by this engine is just different from what we used to hear on V8 trucks.
    If you were looking at something to make an EcoBoost sound more aggressive - Borla ATAK™ performance exhaust system will be the best solution.
    It provides a deep rumbling sound on the full range of RPM. We did not expect a very big difference but the end result really surprised us!

    Check out our video to see the installation process and listen to the sound comparison between the stock exhaust and Borla ATAK™ Cat Back!

    Link to the product: Borla® - ATAK™ Stainless Steel Exhaust System at CARiD



    FEATURES
    - Horsepower and torque increased by 7 – 10%
    - Patented straight-through, multi-core muffler design reduces backpressure while absorbing sound waves
    - Mandrel-bent stainless steel tubes with diameters optimized for reduced restriction while maintaining exhaust gas speed
    - Made from the finest stainless steel for long-lasting durability
    - Backed by the exclusive Borla Million-Mile warranty
    - Proudly made in the USA







    Have a question about this exhaust? - Let us know in the comments below!

    What's up everyone we start this week with the next episode of our build thread "Project F150 EcoBoost"!
    Today we are going to show you how to choose and install a performance tuner on your Ford truck.

    Among dozens of fancy performance chips and tuners we chose Livernois Motorsports My Calibrator Tuner which offers a wide range of setups and provides a very impressive performance improvement.

    In order to reach such impressive performance gains guys at Livernois make a custom tune for your own truck.
    We provided them with general information about our truck and mentioned that it's already equipped with AEM performance air intake and Borla ATAK exhaust.
    They've sent us a custom tune based on our specs which we downloaded in our programmer and plugged in to the computer of our truck using OBD-II port.
    It only takes a few minutes to reprogram your truck, chose the operation mode and you're ready to go!

    Our product expert Greg will guide you through the installation process of the Livernois Tuner and demonstrate the performance improvement in a road test!



    Hit the subscribe button and share the video on your social media channels!

    If you have questions about this or any other performance tuners for your truck - let us know in the comments below!

    Alright guys so we're in the midst of doing some more modifications to our project F150 which we will share with all of you soon! But while we are working tell us what you want to see installed next on our project truck! Maybe something that you have on your wishlist for your own truck or a new product in the industry you want to see reviewed!
