  • PR-X Tune | Available for 93 Octane, 91 Octane, E-30 Blend, E-50 Blend, and E85:
    PR-X, also known as Performance Race Xtreme, is our top-performance tune for the Gen II Ecoboost Trucks. This is by far the preferred tune on this truck due to the ridiculous power gains over stock. The truck feels so much lighter with the increased throttle response and part throttle boost. Wide open throttle boost is increased over stock by +/- 15% which equals out to around 3/5 psi, depending on the rpm. Peak boost is around 20psi +/-

    With this tune you are looking at huge increases in low end torque and acceleration, faster 0-60 times, quicker 1/4 mile results, shift points optimized with a focus on performance. 

    The shift points in normal mode will hit all 10 gears, with downshifts tightened up putting you in the right gear at the right time. This means power to the wheels when the driver demands it. 

    Sport Mode and Tow Haul mode retain most all of the positive features from Ford with minor tweaks to improve over all feel. 

    All driving modes drastically improve throttle response and feel, but click to Sport mode and this improvement is multiplied. Sport mode has a noticeable increase in throttle response above that of the already increased base mode. The PR-X tune is only available for premium fuels of 91 octane or better. We do not recommend 87 octane at all, but for those that tune the bare minimum allowed in the truck, you can use the Trans Only tune.

    ***NOTE: Do not tow with the PR-X tune installed. All towing or hauling must be done with a Daily-Tow Tune or after returning to the stock tune and enabling Tow-Haul mode.***

  • PR-X (No Trans Tuning) | Available for 93 Octane, 91 Octane, E-30 Blend, E-50 Blend and E85:
    This tune has all the benefits of the above PR-X but has the trans setup very mild for those that prefer the stock feeling shifts of the truck.

  • Daily-Tow | Available for 93 Octane, 91 Octane, 87 Octane, E-30 Blend, E-50 Blend and E85:
    The Daily-Tow tune is a step down from PR-X. Designed to be a performance tune and a towing tune hybrid the main difference is the peak boost. Peak boost is lower than PR-X but we were able to keep most of the improvements from PR-X. Throttle response and part throttle boost is still a drastic improvement over stock. This tune can be referred to as the "Street" or "Daily Driver" tune with a focus on all around performance but not so much that it is no longer a good idea to tow with it.

  • Daily-Tow (No Trans Tuning) | Available for 93 Octane, 91 Octane, 87 Octane, E-30 Blend, E-50 Blend and E85:
    This tune has all the benefits of the above Daily-Tow tune above but has the trans setup very mild for those that prefer the stock feeling shifts of the truck.

  • Adaptive Any Octane | Performance Trans Tune:
    This tune can be used with any octane fuel, the concept behind this tune is to take the improved shifting and performance of the PR-X tune but leave spark, boost and other items stock allowing them to adapt the fuel in the vehicle. Throttle response and part throttle acceleration will still have a noticeable increase over stock.


  • Octane: Gas vehicle tunes are heavily impacted by the octane of fuel being used. If you want power, run higher octane. Running a higher octane allows us to advance the spark more which results in better performance. That being said, you should pick tunes for the octane you plan on running. If you always have and always will run 87-89 octane, then that is what you should choose. You can run a tune for 87-89 octane and fill the tank with 93, however you cannot run a tune for 93 octane and fill up with 87-89. Doing so will result in knock activity, a loss of power output and in rare cases, possible engine damage. Our recommendation for performance tunes is to run the highest octane available. This is especially important on a turbo vehicle.
  • The E30 and E50 versions of tunes are designed to be used with a mixture of E85 and premium fuel. Combined mixture can be up to E50.
  • E85 - The Gen 2, 18-20 2.7 F150 can run full E85 on the stock fuel system.
