Hello from Maryland!

 

Did my research of more than 20 SUVs to replace an existing one and it boiled down to the Q5 Audi, 2016 Sport Edge and the Mazda CX5. Thank God I came to my senses and bought the Edge the Q5 would have been double the monthly payment...lol

 

So far I've added the majority of Ford accessories which are reasonably priced and fit great.

 

I'm now in the process of blacking out everything on an electric spice color, so far it just keeps looking better.

 

Then I'm considering going with Unleash for a tune.

 

Looking for advice wherever possible and especially on the tuning issue.

 

Thanks!

Welcome, and congrats on the new '16 Sport!  nothing like saving a bit of money and still enjoying your ride! 

 

Unleashed and Livernois are your two top choices currently in the Ecoboost tuning game.  You can also talk to Brew City Boost and Leading Edge Tuning.  There's another up and coming tuner with a novel approach to tuning Ecoboosts that really works, safe & within Ford's parameters.  You can email him at bradleyfredrickfischer@yahoo.com.  IDK if he has tuned an Edge Sport yet, but he will tell you what he can/cannot do.  Everyone I have mentioned except for Livernois uses SCT tuning devices as of now.

As promised...

 

Here's the stock/baseline Dyno report for my 2016 Ford Edge Sport (87 Octane).

 

Notes:

 

- The Dyno used was a Mustang brand (aka the "HEART BREAKER") at the CCBC College in Baltimore, MD.

 

- The dotted line is the applicable Info for this vehicle.

 

- Tunes from Unleashed are in route and follow-up Dyno reports will be posted for 87 Octane Tune, 93 Octane stock & Tune and e30 Tune.

 

- Dyno Tech was impressed with this vehicles 87 Octane stock numbers.

 

- Check out the coinciding Dyno screen shots in my "Gallery"...;-)

Looking at your Dyno report it looks like parasitic loss is approximately 27.5% TQ and 27.9% HP.
Given that at the crank numbers are 315HP and 350TQ for the Ecoboost 2.7L . 
A good tune adds around 50HP and 50TQ at the wheels. 

 

When I do the math at the crank numbers jump to 378HP and 415TQ. Add in a MRT axle back exhaust good for some HP and TQ and that should put you around or above 385HP and 420TQ at the crank !  :ford:

You are welcome, the numbers are optimistic.  I will crunch them again for you when you post your tuned Dyno Chart.

Update:

 

87 Octane Tune completed with positive results, Dyno & Qtr mile results to follow (1-3 months)... :clapping:

 

In the process of refining the 93 Octane tune, working to resolve high CAI Temps (Ref "Stock Inter-Cooler Grille" for details)... :sos:

 

Maybe E30 to follow... :drool: :worship: :rockon:

 

Dyno & Qtr mile results to follow (2-4 months)... :happy feet: :clapping: :ford:

Great capitalization on the dual benefits of E with GDI - octane AND cooling!

Snmjim:

your qtr mile was 12.9 @105.3

 

Xtra: best dyno we had was 299whp@ 4907 and 365wtq @ 3875

With a 22% parasitic loss put him at 463tq with 445hp crank

I had another look and found some errors on my part  :hammer_self: . I will break my math down for you.  

Using the stock base numbers of 315 hp and 350tq at the crank and at the wheels 253TQ and 226HP.

Parasitic loss is 97tq and 89hp.

Here is my corrected math and how I came to the numbers. 

 

315 x 28.27% = 89.05 so HP parasitic loss is 28.27% HP

350 x 27.72% = 97.02 so Parasitic loss is 27.72 %TQ

 

299whp tuned - 226whp stock = 73 whp gain

365wtq tuned - 253wtq stock = 112 wtq gain

 

73whp x 28.27% = 20.63       20.63 + 73 = 93.63hp gain at the crank = 315+ 93.63 = 408.63 crank HP 

112wtq x 27.72%  = 31.04     31.04 + 112 = 143.04tq gain at the crank   350 + 143.04 = 493.04 crank TQ 

 

The final numbers I came up with are 408.63 HP and 493.04 TQ at the crank. Man thats a lot of TQ!!!  :rockon:

 

With a weight of 4400 pounds and HP of 408.63

using this site  http://www.wallacera...m/et-hp-mph.php

 

Your ET / MPH computed from your vehicle weight of 4400 pounds and HP of 408 is 12.87 seconds and MPH of 105.02 MPH.   Push the weight to 4550 and HP at the crank jumps to aprox 415 to get the 12.9

 

You stated - Qtr mile: 105.3 mph/12.9 sec, so my numbers are in line with that.

 Please let me know if I screwd up.
