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.

Awesome advice & Thnx!

BTW, just had a Dyno baseline done on it while stock, I'll post the results sooner than later.

Once I figure out how to attach Pics & Docs to the forums I'll post, any advice on how to???

You can attach files/pics to each post using the MORE REPLY OPTIONS button at the bottom right.  You can add images to the Gallery and then use the My Media button to access/attach those images.  Or you can host images on sites like flickr and imgur and link them back here.

As promised...

 

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

 

Notes:

 

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

 

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

 

- Tune from Unleashed is in route and a follow-up Dyno report will be posted.

 

- Dyno Tech was impressed with this vehicles 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 CAC 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:
