Hello from Toronto Canada. I just brought home a new 2013 Ecoboost screw. Love the truck and am considering some mods.

Originally, I was going with a mangaflow exhaust, k&n filter and a tuner. But after talking to a tuner here in Canada, he recommended a Afe intact and a Stainless Works exhaust. As for the tuner, I am leaning towards a SCT AND a few custom tunes.

I would like to hear if I am going in the right direction. If anyone has any recommendations for tuners in Ontario Canada, please post or PM.

If your in tdot, check with solo performance. There a Ontario company if I'm not mistaken, and make beautiful products. Or even check out full race, amazing products as well. Intake will bring out a lot of noise, and not all people like it.. Maybe check youtube. Sct units are nice! I have a 5015 livewire ts, which is the 4" touch screen option an a bit more pricey but well worth it. Quite a few places have experience tuning ecos, with sct tuners. 5 start tuning, mpt tuning, unleashed tuning, so cal tuning, I think full race is also under development.

Welcome from a fellow Canadian.

Can't go wrong with an intercooler cover! I'm just up the 401 in guelph. I've also heard an mrbp (I think is the name) exhaust that sounds pretty good.

Are 5 star tuning, mpt tuning, unleased ... etc in Canada? I have located a tuner in Newmarket called AGP Speed and Custom. Does anyone have any experience with these guys. Maybe, I don't understand it correctly. Do I have to take the car to them, or do I just call up the company and tell them what I have and they set up the tuner and mail it to me? I figured the truck had to be on the dyno as they made the adjustments and created a custom tuning program. Thanks.

The companies that I all mentioned are state side.but they can email you tunes to load to an sct tuner. They can also make adjustments and email them.

Okay, it has been some time, but I thought I would update everyone. I went with an AFE intake and a Stainless Works exhaust from the catalytic converter back. I also bought a livewire tuner kit. I used the tuner at AGP Speed and Customs.

Firstly, if you can only do one mod, then do the exhaust. That made the biggest difference.

Secondly, I would recommend the guys at AGP. They are really knowledgeable and work with mostly trucks.

As for the improvements, the original HP was 310, less than the 365 advertised. After the mods HP was 390 HP. The biggest improvement was in torque. After mods, with 94 Octane (PetroCanada), the torque was 500.

The truck is TOTALLY different. 0-60 best time is 6.26. I am sure I can do under 6, but need to practice my launch in 4x4 and correct brake pressure.

Advertised HP is at the crank not the wheels.
310hp to the wheel is right about where it should be depending on outside temps and humidity the day of the dyno pull.
There is at minimum of 15% drivetrain loss, therefore 365-15% =310hp. 15% would be approx 55hp of a drivetrain loss.
