    2.0 boost downpipe

    So guys I still cant post pics but I found a photo of our stock downpipe. I think that is where we are being held back after the tune. It has a pretty serious bent and pinch point right after the turbo. So is anyone interested in a downpipe? When I talked with lms they will build a pipe but because its one off it would be very costly. This is more than likely the second best mod we could do just at sight. Plus a catless would give a better sound.
  2. Easy as pie. Everything bolts up in fact some guys build the 2.3 out of 2.0 blocks to get rid of the open deck. I am not one but I have my 4K miles rs engine and turbo waiting for my 2.0 to fail but it hasn’t even being tuned for over 100k

    Disappointed with Livernois tuner for 2.0L...

    Well I know I’m let this slip for some time but I’m back. First I have run the tune on my 2.0 for just over 100k now with no issues. I’m very happy have only tuned back to stock once just to see the difference and could not get 93 oct in CO only 91. I only have stock 93 and e30. as far as performance I love it very surprising the cars you can beat. I was able to get my best of 14.16 1/4 mile but it was very hot and humid. I’m sure I could get it down if I was only at the track with my edge. It was just because I was already down with my truck. Left the car seats in and everything. I can say I’m very happy with it and plan on doing it to my maverick ASAP. Only thing I wish I would have done with my edge 2.0 was a downpipe but no one makes it for the awd. I can also say for those worried about the long term they tuned my 3.5 truck with downpipes, meth and a few other goodies and I just rolled 260k of tuned miles and not nice ones. Also ran my 2.0 edge at well over 100mhp for over 2 hours straight. Very happy with mine long term .

    Recovery hooks

    Alright guys anyone know if the 16 plus edge has the recovery hooks behind the front or rear bumpers? The 16 RS has a plate to remove for the front but the rear has the threads under the rear bumper so you have to drill it out to work. Do we have that option or any aftermarket options? To cold and snowy here to look right now.

    2.0 1/4 mile times

    Ok guys as the title says has anyone got an idea what these will run stock vs tuned? Im heading to the track Friday and hoping for low 14 sec. that would make me happy. Mine is awd so I can get off the line fast enough and I am tuned.

    tuning at a certain mileage

    Yep no issue with tstat. I did mine before the tune. Did that plugs and filter before I dropped it off for dyno. I’m 3 hrs from them.

    tuning at a certain mileage

    If you are already using top tier oil then you will be fine. I run an soil and after talking to the tech they still recommend 15,000 oil change as that is the shortest interval. So with that in mind I follow normal oil change and fluid service schedule. I do drive mine like a a hole most of the time. I have 3 lms tunes cars and my highest mileage tuned is just rolling 200,000 of lms tuned miles. It’s my work truck so I pull a lot of trailers also. Change oil when it says to on the dash and follow normal change for everything else and it’s been great. Have 48,000 miles most have been e30 tune on my edge and same deal need to get the trains fluid changed soon.

    clicking, tapping noise

    That is normal for the 2.0 I’ve had a few my 17 does it also. It’s the hpfp that seems to make that noise. Absolutely nothing to do with the turbo. It’s fuel system related. No worries. Glad to see they removed the cover. I run mine in the winter to help hold heat then remover it in the summer to reduce heat.

    Factory boost psi?

    Why go through all the hassle of trying to deal with tuners that don’t want to support it? I understand if Livernois treated you bad in the past but the tune is rock solid on my 2.0 you can actually achieve max boost from your turbo without updating any of that stuff so it’s a waste of money unless doing it for sound and if that’s the case that’s all the reason you need. I was able to max out timing and boost with e30 all stock. Now that being said I’m sure the part holding it back now is the downpipe. Most only offer it for the fwd edge and fusion. Zzp now offers for the awd fusion 2.0 but can not confirm if it will fit our edge. I’d love to get one and head back for a update.

    Which Tuner do you prefer.....

    I would have to say I’m also in the lms group. All 3 of my eco’s are down by them. My 3.5 has been running full bolt one with meth since day one. It’s at 200,000 now of very hard miles. Lots of drag strips. Street fun and towing. It’s been very solid. My edge 2.0 now has 50,000 miles o. It and I’ve been on the e30 tune for about 40,000 now. No issues at all. Even ran it for several with the cruise set at 120 while in Mexico. It’s been rock solid and easy to use my wife blend her e30 and has no issues. My Rs has very few miles but I average 6.8 mpg over the 6,000 miles it has in the tune so it’s driven hard and held up to that. Not enough miles to know long term on that one. Very simple to use and very reliable.

    Changing Oil Brands

    Mobil one is a good oil and easy to get. Not a bad choice.

    Changing Oil Brands

    Nope all with over 180,000 a piece. My truck is the only one running high hp with meth injection. One with a tune. My 2.0 Edge is currently at 38,000 and I bought it for christmas last year. My dads 3.5 has 196,000 using amsoil 15,000 mike changes. Its his work truck and he beats that thing. My moms escape has 18$,000 something miles running amsoil and changing at oil alert system. That the good thing about how much my family drives we always get to see how long this last. Being in Michigan they all tend to rot out before the drivetrain fails. My 15 is aluminum so its seem to have no corrosion so far so it will make it to 250,000 looking good

    Changing Oil Brands

    Yep I change all mine from factory fill to amsoil and filter at the first 1,000 miles. Then I just change when the computer tells me to. Have had 5 ecoboosts with over 180,000 on them without issue. Even the ones I run e85 and meth injection on have not had an issue for the long haul. Fact is Im always excited that I have not had an oil consumption in cars to date.

    2.7 EB HPFP

    I do think that because these are costing so much more that you wont see any big push for mods until a few years from now when warrenties start to expire. Seems the focus RS had the same thing no big push until they went out of warrenty.
  15. Snox801

    2.7 EB HPFP

    He is wrong. It will not support full e85. The hpfp is the same on the truck as the edge and it is not capable of full e85. I know a few that got to e30. The tank pump should be fine as all other ecoboost ones are. Usually its a combo of new hpfp and injectors needed. Easier and cheaper to go port injection though. So hes either wrong which would be weird because the internet is never wrong or lots of other tuners ya e missed it. I lean towards hes wrong.
  16. Snox801

    2.7 EB HPFP

    Correct e is a cheap way to max out you timing and boost.my bad I assumed you had stock turbos. I can tell you from a friend who went big turbo on his 3.5 even the hpfp has to be custom made on top of Livernois extreme to keep up. Im shocked more people dont do secondary fueling like the rails for the RS and st. Even the ones that have two nozzles In the spacer. But thats very similar setup to meth.

    Hypertech canned tune/ fuse locations

    Yep livernois is the way to go. They have done all my ecoboosts and all are high mileage except RS. Very easy to use much more to gain and are very very safe. Ive been tuned by them on my truck for 170,000 miles and its not been easy miles no issues. My edge is still under warranty at 36,000 and it was tune at 3,400. Its been running on e30 for the last 30,000.

    I think you are going about this wrong. The only reason to go to a new hpfp is to run full e85. Yes our motor can take anything you can give them with stock turbos. You can max out you timing and boost for power on about e30 blend of fuel. This is what I do on my edge 2.0. So my truck has a 36 gallon tank so about 11 gallons of e85 then the rest premium. Or just do 10 gallons then every 1/4 tank you have a ref point. I did 5 gallons e85 in my Edge so every 1/4 is 1.25 so fillups are easy. Been 36,000 straight doing this and it works great. Beside that a hpfp and injectors are great for flex fuel. But honestly meth is by far the best option. I have been running alky system with straight meth. I can extract loads more power than 93 keep my intake tract clean and lower intake air temps by a lot. No need for a intercooler. Ive run 176,000 miles this way on my truck and its the best for traveling. Only sprays when I hit a set boost point so it can last for a long time.

    2.0 boost downpipe

    Ok so with no luck and lms not sure if the fusion one will fit. Im not willing to spend my money for them to see. They have a crazy expensive shop rate. I mean insane. I did some digging and found a company that offers a reasonable one for the fusion awd. So as I was looking they happen to be 20 min from me in GR. So I emailed to see if we could test fit one. They have performed dyno before and after I they got 17whp and trq with just the bolt on no other changes. Now Im not sure as if thats accurate but this is the one part that would not surprise me. The stock pipe is pretty junk. Also after being tuned I should be closer to a focus st in power than I am. The turbos are different so we may have a smaller housing limiting us but the downpipe was a glaring diffrence. I contacted lms to see if they could remotely make the change so I got no check engine if the catless is the only way they offer it. $300 for a true 17whp and some better sound is pretty good deal.

    Cone filter/Cold Air intake

    Yep new filter in stock box is all you need. Even when tuned its not the spot that holds up more power its more than likely our terrible shaped cat. The ecoboosts air system is incredible for a stock unit.

    Fear of the Unknown

    I would not worry about it. You have to keep in mind you will ha e small things all the time with any car. Those rear struts are common on any vehical that has that rear lift gate. Im very surprised you needed a cat. These are very good at self cleaning. One tip you must remember is when you first start the car you need to wait for that high idle to come down. Thats not just to keep it running. On the ecoboost it is used to heat the cat and self clean. Keep the oil changed and use gooed oil you will be fine. My mother 2.0 has almost 200,000 with no isssues.

    2.0 1/4 mile times

    Ya tell me I thought I was bad I do about 80,000 a year for work. I travel all over the country for work. She is a stay at home mom and I about shit when I see it ever time. I ask how she even burns that much gas. Only car I own that doesnt rack up miles extremely fast is my RS cause it always at Livernois getting something done. Or fixed.
