wow.... just.... wow
I was skeptical, I'll admit. I thought buying this, especially after an air intake and without a proper tune yet, that the difference would be marginal. I put off getting this a while for that exact reason, and was i ever wrong. My '17 Ecoboost has always had power behind it, mostly after the air intake and using 93 fuel, but this takes it to a whole new level.
Installation is about as simple as plugging in a usb drive, the only difficult part someone might have besides getting in the area is securing it neatly or hiding the control button. I secured the module to the left side to a harness there, and snaked the button through the space between the dash and the steering column, and the button itself in a small compartment under the steering wheel so i can take it out when need be, and keep it hidden when not.
The app is okay, takes a few moments to load every time you boot it up, but the main use for it is changing the sensitivity of the modes. Stock modes are okay, but tweaking them seems to make everything a lot better.
Going over the modes, they all provide something... usually. Stock is stock, basically the module is off. good for if you want to see the difference it makes or if someone else is driving. Sport, Performance, and Track mode are just incremental versions of one another from most mild (still a big change), to most drastic. Valet you can use if you use valet, but i don't care to let people drive my car and prefer walking myself. And lastly, Eco mode.... this is the problem child, at least for me. It works how it's supposed to, which is nice if you're looking for economy.... but let's face it. If you own a mustang, you're not concerned with economy. It makes the car feel sluggish and not fun to drive, but it would increase fuel economy. I just think fast is a lot more fun.
Overall, i HIGHLY recommend this product no matter what you have. Ecoboost, coyote, shelby, doesn't matter. Haven't tested it with anything but an ecoboost, but i'd suspect that it is the most valuable to them anyway because of the limitations in acceleration and not being able to supercharge it.
