That sounds like what I would want to do is run the conservative Whipple tune.
Just like now I run 5* perf/tow because its plenty fast for me and I know Mike leans on the safe side of his tunes.

And when you "to slow" on power its still gonna be loads faster than my tuned 3.5EB wouldn't it? I run the 5* 93 tune and have a Full Race exhaust with highflown AFM filter, thats all that is done to it.
I want it to be considerably faster than my eco to justify the expense.

Ecowhat? lol

Yes its a second faster in the 1/4 mile.

I had a 2016 3.5 ecoboost with full race turbos, intercooler, and down pipes. The whipple is making 250rwhp more and about 50rwtq more then that set up.

Cool, thats what I wanted to hear.... My truck is fast and love when the turbos are spooled at 20 psi but I'm ready for a simple RCSB V8 with a Whipple.
I'm struggling on whether I want to order 4x4 or 4x2.. I like the idea of weight savings of the RWD but the 4x4 would be nice to have... I have seen lowered 4X4's that look decent so probably go that route.
Oh, and my eco is 2013 so a little heavier than todays trucks, maybe more than a second faster for me... I dont race ever, its strictly for running around town and light to light racing with GT's and other adolescent driven tool cars. ha

I am also shopping for ideas to increase torque on my 2012 5.0. I want more for towing, and this last 4000 trip made me want to go get a diesel. But I think upgrading my F150 is cheaper in the long run. What do you guys think about using the Whipple as an add on to my tow machine?

ecoboost is a better engine for towing

Dragging up an old thread.. OP, did you decide on a shop to do your install?

I'm waiting on my '18 Raptor to get back to me from warranty work for the dreaded timing rattle, and am going to buy a lightly optioned '19 Lariat 5.0. I have not yet decided on where to have the Whipple installed. I too could do it from a capability standpoint, but would rather let someone else do it just for time's sake. I am a full-time finance student and don't have that kind of free time right now.

Iím in Austin every other weekend, but have class all week in Dallas. If they work over the weekend, it may work out.

You could always drop it off on the weekend and pick up a rental car for the week. Wouldn't be expensive.
