2018 2.7l 4x4
The airflow may not be the best indicator for this experiment on my truck. I say that because the Powerboost accomplishes meeting ordinary torque requests with far less boost than my Ecoboosts did.
It has ~100ftlbs of electric torque that it draws from before it asks for forced induction, so you get the NA torque + 100Etorque before you get 1psi of boost.
The best way to describe what that's like is that it's AMAZING how quickly you can get to the speed limit without boost! I spent 4 years driving at the same daily pace in my Gen2. Same Boost PID on my Ngauge. I was in boost almost continuously if I was accelerating driving normally as I drive. I'm not in anyone's way, let's just say.
This Powerboost might never spool 2psi and I've left traffic behind in the rear view. Not enough to get the LEO to consider me a nuisance or anything, but I definitely have them looking.
Admittedly in these parts an old man wearing a cowboy hat in a white truck probably gets a buffer. Lol
Your truck is wholly a poor test subject for us normal ICE trucks to use as an example!
I was followed for a while the other night.. they caught me at the end of a Datalog run.. Don't know why he never flipped the lights on, but he might have seen my name after pulling the plate and decided to leave me alone (I'm a vol FF in the county)
