The tuning job comes from FFTEC and we have to explain this is the stock engine block we’re talking about.
In fact, here is the full list of mods the 2.3-liter unit was gifted with:
Turbo SystemBorgWarner EFR8374 @ ~33PSI
FFTEC CylHead/Turbo Flange Adapter
FFTEC Intake System
FFTEC Chargepipe System
FFTEC EcoEconomy Intercooler
FFTEC Exhaust System
Cylinder BlockFFTEC Forged Pistons
FFTEC Forged Rods
OEM Cylinder Block — No BlockGuard, Sleeves, CSS, etc.
Cylinder HeadOEM Cylinder Head — no Port/Polish
OEM Valve Springs
ECM/ElectronicsCOBB Accessport Protuned by our own Calibration Staff
Fuel SystemStock Fuel System
91 Octane Fuel blended with some 101 = ~95-96 Octane
Interestingly enough, it seems FFTEC’s EcoBoost tune brings a broader power band compared to a 2015 Mustang GT. While the stock V8 delivers peak torque between 4,100 and 6,500 rpm, the custom forced-fed four-pot.
As you can imagine, this is an arm-wrestling competition here, so nobody guarantees that applying the same mods to your EcoBoost ‘Stang won’t bring the reliability into the hilarious area. Still, this project deserves our full attention and the dyno video below allows us to get a taste of it.
