SCTX4, truck info in sig. Custom tune from either 5* or MPT seem to be the best around, I have run both at lengths and am currently testing out a tune from Oz Tuning, no opinion on it yet as I just started using it.

agreed, X4 here. I got mine used from a guy with a 2012 F150. But downloaded the SCT updater and ran all the updates and it worked great on my 2016.

I'm also running an OZ-Omega tune on my 5.0L

What kind of 0-60 and 1/4 miles times are you guys with the 15 up 5.0 seeing with the custom tunes? I would like a tune that doesnt let the truck get to 5th and 6th gear so fast.

yes, #7015

I don't really know on times, Haven't tried to check. But it is quick. And if your foot is down, it won't hit 5th or 6th until well beyond 60mph.

It really depends on what you are looking to do.
If you want raw power and torque, then SCT X4 would be good as well as some custom tunes.
If you simply want some better hp and response or are looking for more economy gains then a simple stock tune could work well for you.

You can't go wrong with Diablosport or SCT. Both make fantastic products and have a great knowledge of what helps make vehicles tick!

If you need help pricing any tuners feel free to shoot us a message! Hope this helps!

Diablowsport will never touch my vehicles.....That being said, I will wait for SCT to come out with a tuner. Dont want a Bully Dog either.

Default 16' f150.

I have an X4 with custom tunes for my 3.5 EB from torrie @ unleashed.. 91 Perf/race, 91tow, and 87 Perf/Race tunes... I Have catless downpipes stock exhaust fitted to 3," and AEM drop in replacement filter.... Truck is insanely quick... Way better than stock... Been custom tuned since 2000Km with careless down pipes, i replaced all my factory fluids after 1000 mile(1600km) break in period... i have run the custom tunes from mpt on my previous truck and they were awesome buti opted for unleashed had some guys message me on Facebook from ecoboost f150s group and sending me their dyno runs on Their trucks for the gains.. I found an average of roughly 410hp and 505torques at the tires on 91(stock runs were averaging 340hp and 410torques 87 octane). Highest I saw was 420hp and 530torques on 91.. Which is insane.. I raced my buddy's stage 2 Roush charged(650hp) equipped 2016 f150 and we stayed side by side but I lost the quarter mile by about 5 ft which is impressive for my truck having a 91 performance tune catless down pipes and an aem drop in filter. We both boosted launched in 4wd and after about 75-80mph(120-130kph... I'm canadian) was where the horsepower difference really showed. Ive also saw videos on YouTube of a stock 16' 3.5EB smoking a bunch of trucks with torrie's tuning at the "desert" drag races somewhere in Arizona... I strongly recommend unleashed for anything ecoboost and Ken from oz tuning for 5L's
