  1. Continental TerrainContact AT's

    F150 Ecoboost Wheels and Tires
    Just retired my Duratracs the other week while switching over to my winter set. The Duratracs were getting loud and scary in the rain (we get lots of rain). I'm set on the terrain contacts based on their wet handling reviews. Just waiting for them to go on sale. Yea unfortunately they don't...
  2. Another 3000 mile haul.

    Smaller engine, more power. When the turbos start producing positive pressure you start injecting lots more fuel. More fuel = more heat. Also our motors like to make power down low in the rpm where n/a motors make their power up top. More rmp = more coolant flow. If you look at the coolant...
  3. Help with high temps when towing

    F150 Ecoboost Towing
    Do you know what your stock Vs tune fan setpoints are? I'll be getting a 5* tow tune for next season and want them to knock the high speed setpoint down a few degrees.

    More details/pics of oil cooler setup? How are you monitoring oil temps...?

    Mass, what RPM's are you holding while climbing?
  6. Still running hot when towing

    F150 Ecoboost Towing
    True, not sure what kind of flow we have though our system but the 170 stat i had defiantly opened up further. Wish i had looked closer at the ID to see if there was a difference.
  7. Driving in DEEP snow

    F150 Ecoboost Chat
    Great story. Glad it all worked out in the end. Fluffy snow i wouldn't be to worried about. Heavy wet or frozen snow is a different ball game. FYI the lower air dam (two bolts) and the diaper are super easy to remove when clearance becomes an issue.
  8. Understanding OAR. I have been having some issues.

    F150 Ecoboost Performance
    I'm constantly battling part throttle KR and high OAR values. OAR is directly affected by KR. When full throttle my KR immediately goes negative. But during part throttle, especially flat highway cruising my KR regularly pegs 5+ and stays up in that range. Problem is when it comes time to put...
  9. Still running hot when towing

    F150 Ecoboost Towing
    The only thing a lower t-stat is going to do is give you an extra few seconds before you begin to overheat. They work great for quick sprints but offer little benefit for prolonged high loads (towing). The stock t-stat opens around 180-190'ish? But everybody is complaining of temps above 220...
  10. What did you pay for gas today?

    F150 Ecoboost Chat
    Ok, you were just saying that in your testing you found 94 to be more like "91.1" on the better days and worse in the winter as it's not used as much. 91 at any Costco typically gets replaced more often then my underwear. Just look at the line ups every time you drive by. I've found our 91 to...
  11. What did you pay for gas today?

    Why not fill up at Costco with 91? Should be a bit cheaper and gas moves quick there, always fresh. 94 is a waste, i never found it to be consistent nor worth extra charge.

    $2.6US/Gal ($0.92Cdn/L) for Costco 92 in Belingham, WA. Worth the trip, especially when i get to pickup some Bilstein 5100's for cheap on the way. No Tax either:cool:
  13. Larger OEM F150 trans cooler

    F150 Ecoboost Towing
    Hey mass, were you able to get any more pulls in with the decoupled trans cooler? Curious how this configuration is working out for you, any bit of load we can shed from the main cooling system would be great. Especially since this is super easy and cheap to do.
  14. Found a great alternate to Torque Pro for Apple users(also available for Android)

    F150 Ecoboost Performance
    Purchased the MX not to long ago. Provided a slight increase in read speeds over the generic ELM adapter that i was using from Amazon. Was disappointed to find out you have to either have bought the MX+ or pony up the extra $ for access to all the Ford PID's through their app... FYI, forscan...
  15. EBC brakes- not impressed...

    F150 Ecoboost Brakes
    My pads from factory wore much faster on the front insides. Pads at approx 50k Upgraded to powerstop z36. They came with new clips and boots.
