The 2.7 liter EcoBoost in the 2015 F-150 is already an extremely potent powerplant for its size. It punches well above its weight class, outperforming Chevy’s 5.3 liter EcoTec3 V8, for example. But I’ve been anxiously waiting to see what this engine can do when a custom tuner like 5-Star Tuning does their magic. The answer? Gains of 30 horsepower and 54 ft-lb’s of torque when measured from peak to peak (stock vs tuned). On these particular dyno runs the stock 2.7 liter came in at roughly 265 horsepower and and 330 ft-lb’s of torque at the rear wheels, this makes sense with a factory rating at the crank of 325hp/375tq after you allow for about a 20% loss for driveline components (everything between the engine and the tires). After the tune the truck dyno’d at 290 horsepower and 380 ft-lb’s of torque.

These are great results and great value for your money, I doubt there is any other way to add this much power to your truck for this little money (tunes start at roughly $400). On top of that, if you do want to do other mods, I highly recommend getting a tune first, to get the most out of your aftermarket performance parts, such as air intakes, exhausts, downpipes and more. The tune will adjust your truck’s ECU/computer to take full advantage of these new parts.

It should be noted, that if you want these kinds of gains you’ll have to run 93 octane gasoline. Running the higher octane is one of the ways 5-Star accomplishes the power gain. 5-Star (and other tuners) can tune with 87 octane gasoline in mind, but the power gains won’t be quite as spectacular. The higher octane gas allows for safely adjusting certain engine parameters to generate more power.
