My vote is, don’t get rid of the truck, get the bronco too.

Well, finally got ,my shot at a Ram TRX............

Very long story so I will keep it short....... rolling down a 4 lane parkway at 2am coming home I see bright head lights in the rear rapidly approach and as the vehicles rolls passed the drover side the breaks come on hard and the truck rolls even with me...... not sure but I am assuming the driver and passengers are thinking they will be picking on just another ecoboost.... so a couple quick short burst on on the breaks the drive is itching for me to react....... I do a quick 5 presses to get to S mode and the truck rolls down to gears to a very sweet spot for me at 45mph I give a little push on and off the throttle and the TRX rolls out literally the same time I do........ very surprised I pull out about a 1/2 truck and we are off......at about 110 we are dead even and just above that I actually gain a some and his bumper is at my side mirror and holding until he lets off, I then do the same and we roll down to 70mph or so and he wants another shot, I kindly pass, proving my point and no doubt shocking him and answering my question, can my mighty ecobeast hang with a TRX!!!!!!! Top speed for a TRX is 117 mph and they seem to run the 1/4 mile between 12.4 - 12.9 depending on driver. Muscle truck and motor trends kept getting consistent 12.7s

Other than that 702hp power plant Supercharger awesome sound, I love my Ecobeast...... Now to finally see what at the Wednesday night street drags so I can line up!!!!!!

The whole aftermath, keeps me smiling and falling deeper in love with my Lil V6 Twin Lung Bully!!!
Heck yes. That’s what I’m talking about!!

Do you ever watch TFL truck on YouTube? They are out of Denver CO, so around 6000’ of elevation. A while back they had a race between a tuned raptor and a TRX. That raptor literally was only two bumpers behind that TRX. There’s no doubt your truck is much faster than that raptor especially with that E50. So I 100% believe you when you say you beat the heck out of that TRX. I live in a small town, not very many roads to race on, but I’ve creamed a couple diesels, even before I upgraded my turbos. I’d love to race an NA Mustang, I think I could beat one up here.

I hear you and thanks....... Really hard to explain but my truck right now is a beast from 35-45mph roll in the right gear...... she absolutely moves to 100mph really quick... I need to get a draggy......
Yeah I bet it is a monster. Heck mine feels like a rocket ship from a 45mph roll. If I just punch it at 45mph the whole front end visibly lifts up.

What do you hope to accomplish shifting to 2wd? Have you seen a difference? I would just run 4hi all the way.

Yeah I agree. The truck won’t even shift out of 4high till you let of the gas.

Don't understand the guys on the streets who drive like diks and when stopped heads up at a light, flip you off after you clearly gapped them!!!

Late model chevy CC, slammed, pizza cutter tires, clearly exhaust mods a possibly bolt ons kept riding my a&& on a one lane road..... rev speed up, slow down, flash lights..... typical dik stuff. one lanes turns to two and off he goes weaving in and out of traffic, At one point her races a dodge diesel and I think a wrx for the 7 or so miles of parkway and traffic lights...... a few miles later I roll next to him at a stop light....... Savy I reach over and twist to 4wd.......... traction control off and now we wait....... dude revs and power brakes a burn out..... as the smoke clears the lights about to change, bring it 2k rpm........ green and we go...... not a fkn chance.... I'm 4 trucks ahead by 100ft and never look back to around 85mph but I hear him still on the pedal hard....... maybe 5 trucks now. I let off and the pedal and the typical fly by with the left hand out the window over the cab middle finger bird!!!!!! Give my dash board a little pat, rub and say, that a boy!!!!!

Who knows, maybe it would have been a different story from a roll....... I'll still take it!!
Yessss. Taught him a little lesson. He was probably like, “dude, this full size pickup truck guy thinks he can beat me”

I would have loved to see the look on his face when he realized you gapped him.

I recently was playing games with a diesel guy. He was too scared to race me. All he wanted to do was the typical flyby thing.

Patience's is what I keep telling myself.....I never check my email every hour, until today!!!! Come on tomorrow!
Brett usually would reply to me in the mornings, and usually on Monday or Friday. Sometimes in the middle of the week, but usually on mondays.

Oh boy, my 1st BoostKing E50 File to load and data log. Came through the email just now. (Well a couple minutes ago)....... That is great service. I expected tomorrow since our last email conversation was close to his closing... So clearly, after hour attention... A+
Awesome. I’d love to see some of your logs. I really like his tunes. I gotta go out in a few minutes and do a datalog for him on the new big stage 4s!

Well, got to drive it on my commute after filling with E50,,,,,,, Then started to feel under the weather at work. Went and took a COVID Test and now I am held up at home with a positive test, high fever and massive headache..... Gotta isolate and keep the family as safe as I can.... So it going to be few days for a data log to be sent....

First impression, he did give me some power, but conservative of course and the truck feels smooth for throttle position and response. The Trans file,,,,,, I really like so far, like a lot!
Oh no! Get well soon! Make sure you take lots of vitamins, and take some hydroxychloroquin, no matter the controversy on it. I have family members who had Covid and they took that, and in a couple days they felt better.

Yep, I really like Brett’s trans file too.

question, does the sct data log delete after each export? Seems this last data log is extremely long/large
Yeah I’m waiting to hear back from BoostKing as well. I figured he was having a long weekend. How does the truck feel power wise? Does it feel quicker now?

I don’t think they delete after you export it. It deletes as soon as you exit from the datalog/gauges and then go back into the datalog/gauges and start a new log. Up until you start logging a new log I don’t think it deletes.

Ok, TOWMA8R, He a bad bad boy right now....... This truck is putting it down and rolling out when the foot asked it to! Great great normal driving characteristics, the trans is pretty good, really close to where I asked it to be and its more refined, smoothness...... Although more drive time will tell.in S Mode, and under more driving styles..... I will give it a few days of good driving, log it and send it back, but let me say, the truck a whole new animal.... I am grinning ear to ear....
How much hp do you think you gained?

compared to? Calibrated E30-50 Tune or BoostKings dedicated E50? Anyways, I can't put a number on it but I do know what I ran at the track in comparison....... As for if its version 1 vs version 2 of his tunes, I do not know...... but its a notable difference...

I will try to get tot he track next Wednesday, Week from tomorrow. I should be on version 3 if not 4.....
I guess I was saying versus your calibrated tune.

Good wash and detail, good long drive and sent off some additional data logs for Brett. He has some good ones, all different driving styles to work off of for revision 3

Gotta get this dialed in, got called out by a buddies friend, seems he thinks his dodge 1500 rumble bee is all that..... My buddies says he has a cam, headers and tune and last he was told, the truck ran a 13 flat..... 2wd So he says the next time I go tot he track, he wants to meet me there and put $100 on it
You will smash him.
