I think this will help with newcomers



EcoBoost F150 Performance Stages

Stage 1:

Tune

CAI/drop in filter

Stage 2:

Tune

CAI/drop in filter

Cat Back exhaust

Intercooler upgrade

Stage 3:

Tune

CAI/drop in filter

Cat back Exhaust

Intercooler upgrade

Down pipe

Meth injection



Stage 1: warranty friendly mods. (In most cases)

Catback Exhaust http://www.f150ecoboost.net/forum/13-f150-ecoboost-performance/493-aftermarket-exhaust-sound-database.html

Cold Air Intake http://www.f150ecoboost.net/forum/30-stage-3-motorsports/283-2011-2012-2013-f150-ecoboost-afe-magnum-force-stage-2-intake-install-dyno-numbers.html

Charge pipe (blade pipe) Not sure on the warranty status.

Stage 2:

Programming. Do your own research. SCT supports all custom tune files except Livernois.

Downpipes: midpipes, y pipes. O/R is catless, not street legal, and requires a tune to remove CEL code. Catted have high flow or green cats. Could still throw a CEL code, needing a tune to remove it.

Resonator: not much of a performance gain but a choke in the exhaust system. Twister resonator or none. No resonator increases exhaust note.

Intercooler. Do your own research again. Full race is a raised, grill mount, or FMIC. All others are factory location.



Stage 3:

Meth/water injection. Research it, I don't know enough to speculate.

Nitrous. Self explanatory.



Stage 4: Altering the power source

Turbo upgrade. Borgwarner K03 is factory turbos. Upgrade both turbos to a larger diameter turbo.

Single turbo: not sure if it was ever released to the public. Full-Race Single Turbo Kit | Full-Race.com





Guys with more experience jump in and maybe we can make a sticky out of this. :)

I went straight away with a stage 4 from Bill, and now I'm moving into meth and other mods.

This is not to be confused with stage3motorsports phases of upgrades

We know, sorry for the thread jack. Stage 3's phasing options are a very affordable way to gradually upgrade though.

I agree Pinero, I am also a stage3motorsports customer :)

Don't want this to take away from them as they have great deals

I think this will help allot of people asking what upgrades to go with first
And maybe buying one upgrade at a time. Then finally completing a stage

Stage 4 for me would be bigger turbos, fuel injectors, pump, cams? Nos and all the above

Just for fun... Where to begin with adding performance parts to your EB F150.
These are based off Freddy's idea for starters to get an idea of a good route of performance.

this is a list I threw together quickly. Feel free to comment on what should be changed or added and I'll edit it.
