Here's what I have going on.
I just did a few things to my 2012 fx2 ecoboost. Added a afe cai, 3 inch exhaust (lawson muffler) sounds good at idle, raspy when gassing on it!
Also did a tune with sct 3015 proggammer.
Just did the basic tune of 91 octane, and now when I hit about 3500 to 4500 RPM my truck starts spitting and puttering. Any one else had or has this problem? Thanks

Where in this do you say you hit 6500rpm? That's the rev limiter. Is this the canned SCT tune? If you're sputtering then check/gap plugs to .028-.030. I hit 6500 for some reason and it scared me. Every other time it shifts normally.

sounds to me like miss fires or sucking moisture that has collected inside the CAC
with an intake and exhaust plus the extra timing all in one shot you are sucking a whole lot more air in than ever before

This, I'd bet your plugs are way too wide.

Canned tune. Just the basic tune that is pre loaded from sct.
Ill check my spark plugs tomorrow. I did here that the intercoolers created moisture and caused them to putter and miss fire or a lose of power. Does anyone know if ford had a recall for that?

You haven't followed any of the issues with the Ecoboost trucks I guess. This is a long standing issue with these trucks. Plugs and CAC are the root of many Ecoboost owner problems.

I have but not a whole lot. Im fairly new to the ecoboost family. And never owned a twin turbo car/truck. So I very lost when it comes to doing things to my ecoboost.

Sure, but you'll have to pay for it.
You're better off going aftermarket.
ATP, Full Race, Vortech, and Wagner to name a few, in alphabetical order.
