Ford Racing offers Performance mods - Warranty Remains

Postby Oom Piet » Wed Dec 24, 2014 8:37 am

And I quote from http://blog.caranddriver.com/the-boost- ... -warranty/

Ford is putting EcoBoost engines in just about everything it builds, and Ford Racing wants you to modify them. Or, at least, tweak the software with Ford-developed calibrations loaded into the ECU with a Ford Racing ProCal handset, which plugs into the diagnostic port and controls the typical variables you’d expect: throttle mapping, idle speed, waste gate control, fuel curves, ignition timing, and so on.

The strong implication here essentially is to tweak the electronics rather than throwing parts at the engine. And the reason is that decent gains can be had without destroying drivability. It’s not quite as sexy as bolting up a new intake and hotter cams, but then again, this route isn’t expensive (the handset is $595), and if you use Ford Racing calibrations, it won’t void the warranty. That’s neat. Bolt up a bunch of unsupported aftermarket parts and you’re S.O.L. It’s a proprietary aftermarket, essentially.

Should have done it long time ago. Wonder if we can load custom tunes on the handset :lol:

Awesome, they realised that there is a market for them as the after market tuners are flashing away.

Price quoted in USD, is this true for Fraud SA as well? Somehow, I doubt it.

I've spoken to the kahunas at Ford SA and apparently it's coming to SA as well, early next year.

You'll never get the performance gains with this than what you'll get with the other tuners. But at least your warranty will remain.

These factory performance upgrades are also ridiculously priced. Wonder how many people will bite
