XV1 is an F150 only tune. The transverse based platforms actually cannot run it for 2 giant reasons.

1, The fuel system cannot support the demanded fuel requirements of a tune that is that powerful. The F150 has larger turbos and a more robust fuel system.

2, The transverse turbo based platforms do not have the same size turbos as the F150 based vehicles. Therefore, they are not capable of remaining thermally efficient (meaning not exponentially creating more heat than power) at that level of demanded boost and timing.

The race tune I do not think will ever be available to any clients that only have bolt ons. You would really want to have methanol injection and a built shortblock. The stress that the race tune would put on a daily or street driver would be immense!


Trust me, if we could SAFELY deliver XV1 and the race tune to the masses we would. But maintaining a spotless reputation and record is far more important to our business than a few extra horses.

Is the high boost tune still attainable ?theres really good reviews on the v2 and high boost tune

My wife and I passed on this one a while back, but there is another one coming in later this week. I think we'll get this one if we still get the same incentives which end in two days. Hopefully they will extend them. Our 2002 is failing apart!


I am pretty excited about what I read in the link that was about the Livernois Tuning that was posted by Explosportguy. I like what he said about the reduction in torque steer. I am very weary about getting a transverse mounted motor. The one we drove felt like it put the power to the rear wheels pretty quickly so it wouldn't wander around. Does the Livernois tune apply a higher percentage of power to the rear wheels sooner as you roll on the throttle? That would be GREAT! I did notice that it wouldn't take off at full throttle if I was turning. Hopefully that torque management has been decreased or removed.

This will be the wife's daily driver. I definitely want the better drivability. Of course I want the extra power, but I don't want to piss my wife off by making the shifts hit too hard. How hard does it shift? If it is too hard for her liking, can we get a tune that softens them a little?

Thanks!

does this mean F150 turbos are an upgrade? and does anyone have any results from mods done?

I got to tell you,if your on the fence with the tune go for it! We installed the 93 performance tune with no mods 125miles on the odometer, and this horse woke up! 2016 explorer sport.
I can't wait for the exhaust/downpipe set up to be available.

so for those of you doing the upgrades, many say to set the tune back to stock when going for warranty work - but do you mean removing the 3bar and thermostat as well?

wouldn't those items set a CEL when on stock tune?

Remove the 3bar map sensor, but leave the thermostat in. It won't throw a CEL. I did this a few weeks back when the backup sensors stopped working in mine.

Thank you for the awesome compliment!

As for our 3.5L NA tune, IT IS A BEAST! The power is great, but the shifting is amazing!
